Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SpicyCajun Worth the Sale Price
-Fan looks pretty nice installed(rubbed bronze model), especially compared to other fans of the same price point (when on sale @ $119 that is)
-Runs very quiet; as for the other review that reported excessive noise, I would suppose there might be an issue with the fan itself, and suggest an exchange
-Came well packaged from Home Depot, thanks
-No wobble, very smooth
-I expected more air flow; 54in blades and nearly 5200 cfm are not giving me the results I expected. I have it mounted in a large 20x20+ room, but the results have been lackluster
-Some of the directions in the manual were not specifically clear, especially concerning the wiring. While google resolved my questions, it seems the existence of my newer home wiring setup is very much not uncommon, and left me bewildered how Hampton Bay could exclude such relevant and seemingly common information for installation purposes
-Installation, this being my first ceiling fan install, wasn't a snap, but I did not follow the manual installation steps after my first two attempts. Installation was ridiculous, having you completely assemble the fan, then trying to lift it up and mount it, all while managing extra wires and an aesthetic canopy cover that left no room for the actual installation. If you do purchase this fan, I would assemble the fan as described, but before attaching to the ceiling, leave the scroll bracket and canopy cover loose, to hang down, so hanging from the ceiling is actually possible, and then tighten them up afterwards. Also, unless you are using an extra downrod, zip tie all the extra wire.
-Overall I am reasonably satisfied, but not ecstatic. Basically, I am not unsatisfied enough to warrant the time and energy to pull it down, send it back, and purchase something else. I would not have paid the full price of $160, especially after finishing installation and testing it. At $119 however, its a good purchase.
I hope this fan lasts a long time, I've had no issues with the other Hampton Bay fans I've used.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BR1060 Metal on Metal
Agreed. Installation is harder than most because the instructions aren't very detailed. So it leaves it up to you to figure out (based on pictures) where everything goes. After spending the time getting the blades installed, hanging on ceiling and wiring, I turn it on to find out that there is metal on metal contact with the fan on - its excruciating. The kind of excruciating when you hear nails on a chalkboard. I finally found that it was the blade housing that wasn't circular; after 30 minutes of tapping this housing to make it not touch, I was not successful.
Now I have to return, and start my search for a fan all over again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer good but not best
I installed 7 in total. 2 of them were defected when came in. One had a bad motor, the other had a bad switch. It took me a while to figure out which part was not working. I was able to get a good unit out of the two bad units. I think, I saved a fan for homedepot.
I don't use the manual switches on the fan, so, the chains were redundant and look bad to me. I have to cut them.
I had other fans, this was not the most quite one.
The look is average, the price is not bad.
Only good thing that motivated me to buy this fan was the lights. It had enough room for me to put in 3 CFL light bulb with 23W each. So, my room can be bright.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Davie Nice-Looking, Heavy-Duty Fan-- Easy to Assemble
Fairly easy to assemble.. ~ 1.5 hours, but I've had a fair amount of experience installing ceiling fans. As others have noted, the blades are VERY easily scratched, so you need to be very careful during that part of the installation. Fan looks very nice, and works very well. It is very heavy once installed, and mine rocks quite a bit on the highest speed. I'll need to use the enclosed balancing kit to see if I can't stabilize it a bit. Overall pleased with the purchase.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DennisR22 Blades pose a problem
I purchased two of these fans. I agree with others that they look great. The problem I'm having with them is that some of the blades are flat while others are bowed. Due to the differences in the blades its impossible to get the fans to run without swaying. I tried using the balance kit however the kit starts off telling you the blades all must be the same distance from the ceiling. Due to the blade bowing to different degrees, it's impossible to get the blades even.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SigmaKap95 Looks great
Bought 3 of these fans, one for each of my boys' rooms for our new construction home. Two of them work perfectly, however one of them will not stop making clicking noises even after several adjustments. Would exchange it, but upon install, the electrician cracked the glass on the light and so we are just living with it right now. Overall, it is a nice looking fan and works great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pri123 great fan i'm glad i bought it
My husband an his friend put it up it took a few extra steps and patience than a regular ceiling fan but the end result is perfect. I have it in my living room and have received compliments. It is quiet and gives off plenty of air it's great and the color is beautiful. We just have to install a weight kit it kinda wobbles but that's okay.

I am very pleased with my ceiling fan it looks so elegant in my living room compared to the old out dated one it replaced. I love the color and it is a beautiful fan for the price I paid. It is definitely worth the money.
