Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marty Easiest Fan Blade Attachment Ever!
Originally purchased a Hampton Bay Outdoor Fan, but was not satisfied with the fan output and design after installation. Since the fan location is located in the ceiling of our patio (protected area), I decided to just go with an indoor model.
The installation of the 52" Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan was one of the easiest I have had the pleasure of installing. The bracket could have been a better design, e.g. some of the Hunter's have a slide on design, but other than that I was impressed (having installed at least 3 dozen ceiling fans). The most impressive design was the fan blade assembly, which allows for a slide on and snap in installation of the blades while the fan motor housing is up and mounted. It doesn't require assembly of the blade brackets with screw, like the majority of fans and allows for easy effortless assembly of the blades.
Good thought on the installation front by Hampton! It also looks good and has a sufficient amount of air movement.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lynnette OMG! Anyone heard of putting instructions in order of steps??
My very handy husband has installed numerous ceiling fans. This, by far, has been the most confusing install, mainly because the instructions were not in order of steps. He had to go back and undo several steps to do previous steps. If you don't read instructions, this install will probably go more smoothly!
That being said, the install took approximately two hours. Once installed, the fan is aesthetically pleasing, works well and runs smoothly. Other than the confusing instructions, I would recommend this fan/light. I suggest reading through the instructions once BEFORE starting the installation.
For the price, this is a good purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lv2sing Exactly what I hoped for
I love this fan! It's quiet even at high speed and very powerful! The color choices on the fan blades are great too with a light maple on one side and a beautiful cherry on the other. I had this professionally installed but the electrician even stated this brand is easy to work with.

Installed it by myself in three hours time, including replacing the electrical box with something that would support the fan weight. It has been in place for a week and it works great so far. Wife is happy, so I am happy.
One concern is that it requires the remote to operate it. The switch on the wall cannot be used to get limited use of the fan or the light. Switch off - nothing works. Switch on - it has power to the unit, but no way to turn the fan or light on with out the remote. I might not have bought it if I realized this ahead of time. So, that is why I did not give it 5 stars all around.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jan Flowe Fan purchased June 2016
On the positive, the price is right at $119. It is replacing a fan in my bedroom. I hired an electrician to install it ($109). I'll mention that I have 10 foot ceilings in the center of my bedroom. It took the electrician 2 hours to install the fan. There were no issues with the fan, it just took that long. I was surprised that there is no way to reverse the fan direction on the remote. If you want the blades to turn the other direction, the electrician told me there is a switch on the fan itself that you have to slide. And, yes, I lost the feature that the lights don't dim. Bottom line: the price is good; the lights come on; and, the fan blades turn.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Blackbeered Great Value
So good, I bought a second one to replace the perfectly good one in the family room!
It's quiet; the OEM bulbs provide ample light [maybe a light too white/bright for a bedroom].
The electrical wrap-up is very tight, especially tucking the control box.
Missing are instructions on how to wire two switched circuits customarily found in ceiling boxes these days [one light, one fan]; I guess the control box/wiring harness/remote demands that there be only one power feed?
Total install time for the first was 90 minutes; expect the second to be not as long.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kaytau56 Quiet fan, easy to install.
This was replacing a Hampton Bay fan I installed myself also about 20 yrs ago. I'm 60 now and this was much easier than the one installed when I was 40. The motor is 1/2 the weight. It took an hour to install. It would have been nice to have a dimming feature with the lights as my old one. I also lost the remote reverse feature I had in the previous model, but with 9 foot ceiling in kitchen, this was not a real need. This model just happen to be available at the store because I did not want to wait for delivery of another model, and for $119, I think this is a good buy. The fan is quiet, and there is no wobbling, unlike another Home Decorators fan that I bought as the initial replacement, and returned, for this Hampton Bay fan. The fan blades was easily the simplest component to install. Any electrician taking 2 hrs to install this is just milking time to account for the charge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by supervisor lovely addition
Even though I didn't physically put this up, I assumed the job of supervisor, which as a woman, I do best. The living room addition of this fan makes an updated look, much better than the replaced white one. It goes well with both the new laminate floor, the existing furniture, as well as open concept. The man who did installation said it was easy to install and he especially liked the quick clip-on blades, a function which is easier for install, he said. The remote control is a real treat to use! First time I've used a design like this (dark blades with brushed silver, light kit and remote) and a first-time departure from white. Wanted a clean look, a subtle statement piece, and this is perfect. Good value, too, especially with the remote control and real nice light kit with bulbs included, & connected to my wall dimmer. I searched the internet for months, and this was best value, clean looking design, and now a welcome addition to my home - and I found it at my local Home Depot!!
