Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CamFam This fan exceeded our expectations.
We wanted a durable outside fan for our covered patio. We were pleasantly surprised by the features. Plastic blades - which look very nice and decorative. And hopefully will hold up better in the outdoor weather. Rubber covers the switches (like the reverse blade switch) to protect it from the weather. The light globe turns and clicks in to insure a snug fit - so it doesn't come crashing to the ground. And even the pull chains go through some metal guides to keep them from flying ever where. Everything about this fan seems to be well thought out for an outdoor fan. And as a bonus it looks great too! The light bulbs are 2 - 13watt CFL's so they are dim when you first turn them on but brighten as they are left on.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ryker Worst-the wobble is unreal
Absolutely the worst fan ever bought. The fan brackets are so far miscast, (this has to be casting problem at the factory) that the test method suggested by HBay, shows that the blades at the outer center tip are 3/4 inch off from one another, when measured down from the ceiling. Do you realize what this does to the pitch, and then the wobble that this produces. They are sending new fan brackets, (hold fan to motor), but I'm not expecting much. If the ones I got went through quality control like they did, it's a poor company that puts out a product like this. The ones they send will probably be no better. Glad a lot of people got good ones, I just don't see how, from the one I got. I just don't understand how they let something like this get through, that makes a fan so unstable and so unusable...This is not an install problem by me, this is a quality control problem by the company.

I bought this fan and installed it in about 90 minutes by myself. The bracket has a small hook on it which allows you to hang the fan motor on it while you make the electrical connections near the ceiling, which is very helpful. The fan runs quiet and looks good. You can also mount it flush or use the 4" extension rod. My only complaint is the light output is average. It comes with two energy efficient bulbs which combined with the opaque light cover, tends to reduce ambient lighting. But it's still not bad, just not as bright as our old four 60 watt ceiling fan. But it will use about 70% less energy than the old fan, so overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BoatBuilder Good Fan but One Major Issue.
We use this fan frequently but never use the light kit. The light kit install is supposed to be optional and it plainly states a cap is included for use without the light kit. The cap is included but it is installed on the light kit and must be removed. Removal of the cap is almost impossible without damaging the cap itself as it is installed with some kind of NASA developed, double sided tape. The manufacturer really is no help here. They will send you new caps if you can send them the receipt.
Summary, the fan is fine until you use it without the light kit and expect to remove the cap from the light kit to use in its place. A wood wedge and a hammer is the best way I've found and it still scratches the paint on the cap some.

Overall ease of installation was very good. Directions were easy to follow. Purchased two of the same ceiling fans for back patio/porch that has standard cheap lighting. Comes with two CFL bulbs, but would recommend two LED bulbs of the same wattages. Quality is very good for outdoor use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ANTHONY GAZEBO II 52 INCH OUTDOOR FANS INSTALLED AT A LOCAL SONIC RESTAURANT IN PITTSBURGH PA.
ABC ELECTRICAL CONTRACTORS WAS HIRED TO REPLACE OLD BROKEN AND WEATHERED CEILING FANS AT THIS LOCATION. WE WENT WITH OUTDOOR RATED CEILING FANS SUPPLIED BY HOME DEPOT.
THESE FANS WORKED OUT GREAT AND WILL WITHSTAND THE OUTDOOR CONDITIONS MUCH BETTER THAN THE PREVIOUS MODELS.

I installed this fan about 6 years ago. Went through 5 hurricanes and tons of heavy rainfall. This thing is as hardy as it is attractive. Easy to install, easy to clean. This fan moves a lot of air. If the one I own ever fails, I'll get one exactly like it. EXCELLENT FAN!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Allentown great addition to a covered patio
We purchased and installed (on same day) this fan and it works just as described. The 3 speeds are very convenient and it is super quiet. We installed the weekend before the storm hit us on Wednesday. The unit got a lot of the rain brought by the gusty winds and withstanded it perfectly. A must have for hot days outdoors. Great product.
