Rated 5 out of 5Â by skrymir01 Great fan, easy installation
At first I wasn't wowed by the instruction manual, but once I understood the flow of it (it mixes the standard & close-to-ceiling instructions together) it made sense. The actual installation took very little time and effort, which I was grateful for. The blades were especially easy to put on because they just snapped/popped into place. So far we're very happy with it: it provides a good bit of light, it stirs the air nicely, and it looks super slick in its all-black goodness. I'm very pleased with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Gojira Not a bad fan
Got this fan bc the reversible blades were rosewood/black which perfectly matches the Asian decor of my house, as well as the matte black color of the rest of the fan. Ordered online & got it 3 days later.
Appearance wise it is better looking than the picture. The blades have a nice edge to them and the metal parts look nice. The light shades are actually white, not yellow as some of pictures appear (it turns color when you have the bulbs on). The only major complaint here is that the included bulbs do not fit in the center of the shade & that just ruins the look/symmetry as on 2 of them, the bulb is actually touching the shade. The pulley strings are a tad short & the Hampton Emblems on the end look cheap but those should be easily replaceable.
Great value as Home Depot had them on sale when I purchased it. Not a bad @ regular price either mind you.
The installation was not quick & easy at all (for someone who has never installed one before). Took me about 2 hours (including many breaks from my neck hurting from looking up & carefully reading the instructions over to make sure I don't mess up). The hardest part that took the most time was trying to get the little screws/washer thru the canopy. That was a nightmare trying to do it above my head with the ceiling giving you little working room & constantly dropping the washer (this close to gluing it to the screw).
Feature wise, I do wish that pulling the string would let you use 1, 2 or all 3 lights like other fans do. 3 of them is way too bright.
Successfully installed so it was not impossible. High speed is very fast & pushes a lot of air & is relatively quiet.
Would definitely recommend this fan, especially to people with Asian decor that matches the color scheme.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cicci831 GREAT PURCHASE AS ALWAYS WITH HAMPTON BAY FANS
I was looking for an all black fan and found this one and it was just what I wanted
Installation was easy ( this is like the 50th Fan I have installed for my Family and Friends so I'm rather good at it ) I did not have to balance the blades as there was no noticeable wobbling.
I also installed the Hampton Bay remote control for this fan but had one problem... you cannot use the dimmer switch on the control because you cannot dim the florescent bulbs So I replaced them with the equivalent of 60w L.E.D. bulbs and now it works great and the bulbs are supposed to last 22 years. if I get five I'd be a happy camper. NOW this fan really movies the air ! on high it cools the room in seconds and there is not one sound off this fan it's very quiet which is great as this is a bedroom fan. I do not know why they discontinued this fan I should have gotten a few more.
Ciao for now

Rated 5 out of 5Â by desertgarden09 Works great, easy to install, great value for cost
I am a mid-50's woman who is pretty handy in the house. This fan was installed in my 10-ft ceiling breakfast nook which already had a light fixture. I turned off the breaker to that area and followed all the directions. All electrical connections were easy to understand and color-coded. The best surprise was putting on the fan blades - the one-snap installation was incredibly easy compared to the usual screwing in of three small screws with most fan blade connections. Overall, the fan looks great and moves a lot of air in my south-facing nook which has made life much more pleasant in the desert southwest.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by smcclure728 I love my fan!!!
I purchaced this fan because of the contemporary look, but also because I as told that a 52" fan with 5 blades would circulate much more air. Now, hanging a fan is never fun, but thankfully this fan had a little hook on the side so in the middle of hanging it, you can set it in the hook rather than swapping between you and your helper holding it over your head. This was a convenient feature. Once the tiresome job was done, we laid on the bed, cranked the fan on high and were amazed by how quite it was...and how great the airflow was. This fan is fantastic. We just moved and plan on purchasing a house. As soon as we do I am getting one for every bedroom and the family room.
