Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SoCalSurfSlurper Would buy again
The fan looks as good as it does in the store and is a great compliment to my tropical décor. Much like the other comments state, it does move a lot of air even at low speeds. The motor is almost silent and the unit exhibits very near perfect balance even at the highest speed. This is the third Hampton Bay fan I've purchased for my home and I plan on buying a fourth.
My only critique is that the smaller size I purchased online (60" model) has plastic blades versus the 68" model in the store which has wooden blades.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Niki Great looking outdoor fan!
Sharp looking fan! Completed our outdoor living space project beautifully. Love the finish of the blades, adjustable speed option and wall mount switch, however I do wish it had a handheld remote as well. We did need to purchase an additional down rod with the height of our covered porch. We also have this fan in our vaulted great room...would definitely buy again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AA40 GREAT FAN
I purchased 2 fans after waiting several weeks for them come back in stock. I could not be happier with the appearance and function. They were installed on my back liana. The only issue I had which was my own fault was the switch cup needs to be attached for the fan to work. The only negative which is why I gave 4stars for appearance was the screws to attach the switch cup are silver and the rest of the fan is bronze?? I ended up painting them black and it looks fine.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ADTOU READ THIS REVIEW!! BUYER BEWARE!!
We purchased two of these fans for our new house because we loved the aesthetic. We had them professionally installed and within two months the controller on the fan upstairs no longer worked. We made multiple attempts with Home Depot and Hampton Bay to get a new part. After speaking with Hampton Bay, they were courteous enough to order us a new part, however, after we received the part a week later it was the wrong part. We did this process 2x's with Hampton Bay. Finally, I just went down to Home Depot and bought the same fan and gutted it for the right parts and then returned it and got a refund. Now, after only a year (and maybe less then 20-30 uses) the fan downstairs has the same problem and the controller doesn't work. I went down to Home Depot and bought a "Hampton Bay Universal Remote"- but that is for sure not a universal part (it only has 4 wires, my fan wiring setup is completely different). To make a long story short, I have been sitting here trying to find a replacement part- of which you have to go through some 3rd party now to find what I need and I have been looking at reviews online for this part and everyone is having the same issues as me- so PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW, and BUYER BEWARE that the Hampton Bay Controllers are garbage and their customer service stinks.

We are in the process of adding a 16X20' screened-in porch. Fan was the icing on the cake. Looks outstanding, contractor approved.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HoneyDo Very Good Ceiling Fan
The Hampton Bay Altura sixty (60") inch ceiling fan is a very fine fan when you wish to have both excellence in appearance and function with large real wood blades, oiled bronze finish, and excellent air movement. The fan is not a high speed mover but with the blades and the amount of fan movement turning on "high" you will notice quite a bit of air movement. Installation with careful attention to the process steps is easy and not difficult the fan can and will be installed in about one and one-half to two hours depending on how much attention to the ceiling installation ahs been made..
The reason for my only giving it a "good" rating is that, in the recent past, the company has changed their remote operational hardware. the previous units had a separate and easily integrated remote sensor control unit installed in the ceiling mount. The new current fans have a very different remote sensor and control installed in the bottom of the fan housing to which a light would attach. It is an "automatic" unit which detects the remote and programs the detector in the fan to the switch settings in the remote. What makes this highly problematic is that where you have multiple fans in close proximity the automatic units will, with any power outages, adapt to the settings of the remote that is operated after power is restored. In this way you may and probably will have two or more fans running simultaneously. Attempts to find the electrical wiring for the automated unit in the fan have been, to date, unsuccessful in order to replace the automated unit for a simpler designl as have attempts to purchase one of the remote units if and when they fail.
If you have only one fan application or two or more widely separated and with rebar and concrete separating their installations you may be okay and not have this problem. If you have wood stud and drywall installation the other fans will "see" the other remotes.

My husband and I have been looking at this fan for 2 years and were finally able to afford it - one of many renovation tasks that we can check off our list. We absolutely love this fan and it looks fantastic in our living room. In a space with 14 foot ceilings it is not too big and not too small. You will need to hire an electrician to install the fan if you do not already have a wall mounted switch installed for your current fan if replacing one.
