Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marv Great Fan, should have added a cover if Light Kit not installed
This is a great fan, quiet, and we love the remote. However, don't buy this if you don't want to use the light kit for some reason. We decided that the lights were too low for the Family Room, so opted not to install them, and use the globes as back ups for our bed room fan from the same company. I'm not sure what it would have cost for the company to add the cover plate, and they admit they have had several inquiries, but still no plate. Not to be stymied, I discovered that the plastic top to any 1lb Coffee Can spray painted with a dark brown to match the blades fit just perfectly and covered the wires until the company decides to make one available.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jwhi304359 Great fan, excellent value
This was the first fan that I have installed, and the product itself is excellent. The fan was a special value and included a remote control. After I installed the fan, I called customer service because the light was so dim, they informed me that the light control had a dimmer and walked me through the control. The dimmable light was an unexpected bonus.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mico Great fan for the price
Exactly what I was looking for in a ceiling fan. I love the remote and the quietness of the motor during operation. It was easy to install and, again, the price was unbeatable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by boone93 Impressed with its features
I was impressed with this Hampton Bay model. I've had multiple Hunter fans in the past. This fan performs very similar, quiet with no noticeable vibration except on the higher speeds. I like the installation, in particular the way the wireless receiver fits into the housing, the captive screws on the fans blade brackets, and the screw-less installation of the fan blades to the brackets. Also the fan has a memory if it losses power to remember where you had the dim level set to for the lights and unlike the Hunter fans, it doesn't come back on at full light when the power comes back on. Overall I liked the thought put into the features.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Curt Don' waste your time!
Recently bought 2 of these for a 24 X 12 room. We hung the first one and decided to test it before mounting the blades just to check the wiring. First the fan wouldn't start, then it would run in intermittently. It would finally run with a push to start it and you could hear something in the motor housing rubbing. We tried the light and found the dimmer didn't work as it would go straight to full brightness. We decided to pull that one down and put the other one in its place. It was still in the box when we checked it, but the motor would barely turn it was so tight in the housing. They're both going back tomorrow and will find something else.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jlove Nice fan with some time saving install features
I've installed several ceiling fans. This one in particular had some great installation features that eased the process (i.e. blades did not attach to assembly arms with screws [just snapped on instead], the glass light bowls were likewise not held on by a screwed-on "nut" of sort]. The wiring area was quite crowded when trying to fit the remote receiver into the top bracket. I found that to be a little challenging.
All in all, the fan looks nice and works well. It took me about an hour and fifteen minutes to install. It should have been 30 minutes, but I struggles with getting wires back into junction box with remote received in the way. I took the fan off of the bracket twice during that process, so it was like starting over.
Its important to note that this take candelabra style bulbs (not the typical size of most ceiling fans). I didn't read that detail prior to purchase.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Andy Pulsing Hum
The fan was easy to assembly with simple blade attachments and spring clips for the lights. The fan was balanced even on high speed. The fan is fairly quiet in operation however the fan motor has a pulsing hum that was quite distracting for me in a quiet bedroom. Other Hampton Bay models such as the Sinclair model are extremely quiet.
The lights are on/off with the remote. The light wiring can be bypassed to operate by dimmer switch if desired. The fan speed must be controlled by the remote. Wiring could be made easier but it works. I would recommend a professional install if you have not installed ceiling fans before. I'd recommend other models before purchasing this one again.
