Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gjones Good fan but there are equally good choices for less.
Took 2 1/2 hours to install, as another person mentioned, the motor body and fan assembly were not 100% aligned and in fact it rubbed when I first turned it on so had to use a lever to allow for more separation between the motor assembly and the fan assembly; still not quite straight.
The top shroud that hides all the wires and the electrical box in the ceiling could have been bigger to allow for easier/neater fit what with all the wires and remote in there.
I'm buying a similar fan for our house, (this one was for my daughter's house), that is half the price and has a dimmable LED vs. this fan's dimmable halogen.
Very quiet fan, light works well, a 52inch fan like this is not too big for a 140 sq/ft room despite what the "guides" tell you.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by embee37 Did not work
I must have gotten a defective fan, I assembled the fan and hooked up the transmitter as indicated by the instructions, fan nor lights worked so I called the 800 number and spoke to someone from customer support and was told to bypass the transmitter, I did what was suggested and fan still didn't work, so I removed it and took it back to local Home Depot for a refund which was an very easy transaction. I really did want the fan because it was a pretty good online sale price

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 44NANNY GREAT CEILING FAN!
This ceiling fan is very attractive and we are very happy with it. Love the modern look in our family room with a vaulted ceiling. Purchased the product on sale so that was helpful. Also the light fixture gives off nice amount of light.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lynn Up-to-date, contemporary, attractive, remote-controlled fan
Bought 2 for my 2 bedrooms...love the remote by my bedside, strong light when it is needed, attractive and functions well. Did need an electrician to install the fan only because I can no longer get on a ladder or else with someone's help I probably could have installed it myself, but alas, there was no other adult around when I needed the fans installed. Gives a clean fresh look to any room...love the platinum blades and brushed nickel casing..excellent buy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by denise Great fan until remote begins to fail
I love this fan. I have it in my bedroom. But for the last 6 to 8 months I've had problems with the remote control. It seems to be burning out. Only the reverse button works. And I cannot find someplace that sells a replacement remote.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIY325 Great looks, slight clicking
This fan was incredibly easy to install. The medium setting moves a comfortable amount of air, and the high setting really creates a breeze in our master bedroom.
The dimmer function on the remote was a nice bonus as I don't believe it indicates that on the specs. The light will remember your last dimmer setting and turn back on to that setting.
I've got two minor gripes:
1. The metal sheet that the fans screw into was slightly bent, so when the fan spins you can see that its slightly lopsided. This doesn't cause the fan to wobble at all, it's just an eyesore if you look for it.
2. On the high setting sometimes there is a slight clicking noise. Its not rhythmic so I don't believe its the motor, but rather some metal parts that are rubbing or clicking against each other.
Overall, I'd purchase another one.

Aesthetically it is pleasing.
However, I have hung numerous ceiling fans in several houses. This was probably the most difficult. Installing the receiver box for the remote is the hardest part. You have to fit it into a narrow space within the metal bracket holding the fan to the ceiling. You need to tie in three romex wires coming into it from one side, three additional wires coming out of the other side of the receiver receiver and into the fan, while cramming the receiver box with the wires into this little narrow bracket and then attempt to get the shroud cover all of it. Sure, if you hire/watch someone install it, the ease of installation is great. No problem. Trust me; it's not.
It comes with a halogen bulb. Why not an LED bulb for energy efficiency? Or at least have a standard socket for a CFL or LED.
The light shade is twisted into place. You hope that it will stay up and at the same time hope you don't over tighten and break the glass.
The only way to control the light and fan speed is via a remote control. No lanyards to control. This is nice, but what happens when the remote gives out, or if the batteries die and you are out of batteries?
