Rated 5 out of 5Â by Delores Beautiful and functional!
I had purchased another fan at a competitor store (their comparable brand to Hampton Bay) and spent three hours installing and struggling to cram the remote receiver into a tiny space. After all that, it didn't work! I decided to try Home Depot's Hampton Bay brand instead and I'm so happy I did! Though it cost slightly more, the quality of this fan is far better. It was still a little challenging to install (I am a not-so-handy woman and this was the third fan I installed), but it was much easier than the fan I had purchased at the other store. The other reviewers are right that the directions are incorrect and refer to some colored wires that aren't there. But it is still easy to match the colors and connect the corresponding wires from the outlet to the receiver and then from the receiver to the fan. The only other part that I had an issue with was the canopy cover scratching the downrod as I was assembling it. It would have been nice if they had put some rubber around that. I placed some masking tape over the downrod when I realized it was getting scratched, and that also helped protect it when I was maneuvering it into the bracket on the ceiling. I was happy that the remotes could be programmed with different codes as I purchased two fans. The remote is also a great size and has distinguishable buttons for fan and light. I used 3M Command adhesive to stick the remote holder to the wall. I was surprised how nice the light colored side of the blades look with the brushed nickel. Compared to other fans I saw with reversible blades, this one has a very neutral and fairly realistic color of light wood (other fans in this price range had a light wood that looked too yellow and cheap, so you are stuck with the darker side). I had originally planned to use the dark side, but the light side was a very pretty next to my cream walls. The blades are supposed to be easy to put on, but you do have to pull on them really hard to get the locking mechanism to engage. I was a little nervous pulling so hard on particle board, but it was fine. One of the fans had the switch flipped to reverse from the factory, so make sure that your fan is going counterclockwise for summer and clockwise for winter. When I first turned them on I heard a couple of clicking sounds in the first 5 minutes, but it said in the directions to run the fan for 24 hours and there should not be any noise after that, which seems to be the case. Overall, I'm very happy with the fans. They are quiet, look beautiful, and really move the air.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Joey Great Solid Fan
The instructions were very detailed and easy for me to follow. The fan pushes alot of air and is very quiet. There are 2 mounting options, flush mount, or mount it hanging down with the extension arm. I mounted it flush, it looks really good. They seemed to think of everything with this fan, they even have a hook on the mount so you don't have to hold the motor when you wire it up. I think I will put this fan in all the bedrooms of our house.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by R2D2 Beware of page 10 of the manual
I rated ease of installation as low as I could (they don't allow negative numbers). This is not because this fan is difficult to install, but because the Use and Care Guide stinks. Ok, not the whole thing, but page 10 cost me 2 hours of my life that I will never get back.
Avoid at all costs reading that page! It will unnecessarily confuse you. Instead, just look at the label pasted on the "Receiver" (part K on page 5) and follow it. It's simplicity itself.
Otherwise, this is a good looking, quiet fan at a very reasonable price.
Another hint: The fan will not turn until you have plugged in the light assembly. If you, like me, like to check your progress at every stage of the installation, this fact may save you some time.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by CAPTROSSI GREAT FAN, INSTRUCTIONS ARE AWEFUL
THIS FAN IS GORGEOUS, PUSHES PLENTY OF AIR FOR A LARGE ROOM. I INSTALLED IT INA 20 X 25 ROOM WITH 14' CEILINGS. INSTRUCTIONS WERE POORLY WRITTEN AND PRETTYMUCH USELESS. BE PREPARED TO FIGURE OUT THE INSTALL YOURSELF OR BY A HUNTER
