Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kar23 My fav purchase!
Looks great! It's quiet! Gives off amazing air flow!
My father installed it for me with ease. Was gonna buy a second since I liked it so much but it would be bigger than I need for that room.

Purchased two of these fans used recently. Came with no instructions and I had them both installed in 30 minutes...which includes time involved in removing the old fans. They're quiet and move a lot of air when you require them to do so.
Like another reviewer mentioned, the finish does scratch, but if someone's inspecting your house that close, you shouldn't have invited them in or married into their family anyway.
Fan speed chains are a little sticky/clinky with the light fixture installed since they have to route through the glass.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rock An elegant addition to any room
This fan looks great and peforms well. I would suggest using brighter bulbs than the bulbs that come with the product. They are too dim, especially when filtered through the glass shade. Also, balancing the fan was a bit challenging. I would suggest making sure that the mounting bracket is level prior to hanging the fan. I used spacers (washers) to level the mounting bracket, which helped level the fan.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer beautiful, quiet, effective
We bought three of these fans for our bedrooms and couldn't be more pleased. The style is lovely, looking like a much more expensive fan. The walnut finish with antique gold trim is elegant and complements other brown finishes in the rooms such as oil-rubbed bronze and antique rust. The light bowl is especially pretty - we like it much better than the multiple trumpet-style glass found on other fans that shine directly in your eyes. The light is soft (we had to replace the CFL bulbs because we're using a dimmer switch) but that isn't a problem for us.
Best of all, the fan is very effective at moving air at all speeds, and not just right under the blades. The blade pitch is such that you can feel the air movement anywhere in the room. There's no wobble and it's very quiet.
On a side note, we needed a flush-mount fan in an adjacent room, and chose the Hampton Bay Hawkins fan, which has the same style and goes well with the Bay Island.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MohairSam Attractive and quiet fan. Great value.
Very quiet fan, runs smoothly and looks great. Heck of a value, has the quality and appearance of a fan costing at least $50 more. The lights provided are bright and nicely softened by the glass shade. Blades were perfectly balanced with simple installation, had no need to use the balancing weights provided.
This was my first ceiling fan installation (replacing an overhead light). Just followed the detailed instructions and had no serious issues.
Tiny flaw - the fan pull chain threads thru a small hole in the light kit collar. Because of the drop angle the beads on the chain might catch on the edges of the hole and stick. I put a small piece of electrical tape around the pull chain where it went through the hole - it now pulls smoothly and the tape is not visible outside the fan.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dgoods Noisy and scuffs too easily
Spent a fair amount of time installing this fan due to it being a solo mission. Once I turned on the fan for the first time I hear a low hum from the motor. Extremely disappointed to have take it all apart and return it. The faux finish on the fan also scuffs EXTREMELY easily so if you buy this fan be very very careful putting in and taking out screws because the slightest touch of the screw driver or power drill will scuff the finish. It's a great looking fan, but I wish the quality of the fan was better. I wish I could also get a refund for all of the wasted time putting this fan together and taking it apart.....

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Briz Good fan motor, cheap blades
Five stars for being quiet and moving a lot of air. There is no sound from motor or vibration, and it is very efficient in moving a lot of air. I also like that it accepts regular size CFL light bulbs. Installation was relatively easy, except that a very short screwdriver was required to screw in the screws that hold up the cover at the ceiling - - most people will not have a screwdriver that short.
The bad: The blades are really cheaply made. My guess is that they are pressed paper, not even MDF. There are stickers on the blades, and when you try to pull them off, the finish peals off the blades. It is the thinest finish I have ever seen, and it will come off if you scratch it with anything, even your finger.
The fan also has a small amount of wobble. I tried to balance the blades, but it was not possible to stop the wobble. I decided to accept the wobble because the fan was so quiet, but this wobble was not acceptable to my wife, and she is not happy about it.
I like the light kit, but there is a lot of paint on the glass that restricts the amount of light coming out. If this is the only source of light in your room, you will not be happy with it.
