Rated 5 out of 5Â by Linda Excellent value and beautiful!
This 68-inch fan came up as a "Suggested Product" in one of my Home Depot mailings. I have been researching and looking for a larger fan to fit my 20-foot ceilings. The price was discounted 40%, and offered free shipping to my home -- so basically, I could upgrade my old, white ceiling fan for under $160, and I am not disappointed. This fan is elegant, a quiet statement for your home decor. It's not outlandish, too Victorian, too "cottagey" -- it fits perfectly with modern or rustic leather. The fan has three speeds, runs on a remote control, and you can actually feel the breeze on the floors when it's on -- which is almost all the time in my home. The motor is quiet, the light is adequate, and I LOVE the idea that I can swap out the globe (crackled and beige) for something more frosted or clear should I change my living room decor.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Happyfanlady BEAUTIFUL FAN ** BUY A BATTERY 23A ** FAN SPEED IS REMOTE CONTROLLED ONLY
Beautiful and Quiet. I rated the "Ease of Installation" a 2 because of the remote that is REQUIRED to operate the fan. The advertised remote control seemed to be a PERK .....HOWEVER the remote was REQUIRED. This seeming perk necessitated a complete rewiring of the fixture to include the remote transmitter. After installing transmitter the fan and light both worked. During the blade balancing step the fan stopped working completely. After troubleshooting all the wiring to fixture, the problem was found within the wire connection plugs located between the fan motor and the light assembly kit. Wires can move within these plastic plugs and fail to connect causing the fan to quit working completely. The remote did NOT have batteries. **SAVE yourself a headache and get batteries before installation!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AALANMan Moves a lot of air!
Bought this fan to replace a smaller one in the bedroom. The fan was easy to assemble and hang, but it is HEAVY. Some people might need help lifting it into position. Be SURE that the ceiling pan you have is rated for fans...with the weight of this fan I would be terrified to hang it from a regular duty lighting outlet box. The only niggling thing is that the fan remote does not come with the required A23 battery, and those little suckers are expensive. Don't know why they would not include that since the remote is required to operate the fan. I knew about the battery from the previous reviews though so no big deal.

We purchased this fan for our great room which has 16 ft vault ceiling. We had to order it online and take a chance that it would be as nice as it looked. It arrived very quickly and we were able to have an electrician install it. We also purchased a 4 ft Hunter Downrod in New Bronze from the Home Depot store. I was concerned that the downrod wouldn't fit or wouldn't match perfectly but it looks great and it went up easily. The fan is beautiful color and I love the embellishments around the light. The fan also gives off a good amount of light to help brighten up the room. The only thing I will say is that our fan did not include the batteries for the remote control, so when the electrician installed we never got to actually test the fan while he was there. My husband was able to run out and get some batteries after he left and the fan was in good working order so it wasn't a problem.

Got this online. Put this in a large room (16x20) and I can really feel the differences the amount of air being moved. My wife is not fond of the lamp shade because it makes the room look dim but I do not mind. I have never liked the fans with remotes but this worked well. I also figured out how to wire the fan where I can use both switches on the wall (one for fan and one for light) and utilize the remote also. I must use remote to control speed. I appreciate the quality of Hampton Bay fans. I have purchased fans from Lowes and they don't move much air or are very unbalanced.
