Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hobbes replaced similar fan with this one
I left the ease of installation blank because our electrician did it. He didn't complain so I'm assuming it wasn't out of the ordinary. The 40 watt CFLs that came with the fans(bought 2 of the same fan) are REALLY bright. I use only 2 of the bulbs in the small spare bedroom and only 1 in the small TV room. Both rooms about 12 x 15 sq feet.
We had to replace the fans because the light kits that came with the original fans blew out. The fans worked fine. The wiring in the old fans is no longer compatible with the new wiring in the updated light kits.
Happy with everything.

Hope it lasts nearly as long as the other Hampton Bay-which ran pretty continuously for about 15 years! Attractive replacement with easy installation, used on a down rod. Didn't take a second look at 25% off with free shipping!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by doer easy to install
Wished it was brushed steel, but for the price couldn't pass it up. Old 4 blade fan threw a blade since the arm broke and I couldn't purchase a new arm for it when I needed. You can purchase arms online for some 5 blade fans, but I needed to fix it NOW. The fan was easily installed, looks good and works well. I did have to go back and purchase a ceiling medallion after taking down the old fan and prior to installing the new one since the old base was much larger than the new - ended up with a 16" medallion since the 10" ones were just a hair too small...
Never having installed a ceiling fan, it took me about 4 hours including figuring out how to remove the old fan, the trip back to home depot for the ceiling medallion and installing the new fan on an older house (with slightly different wiring than in the diagram in the instructions), going up and down the ladder to pick up dropped screws, and watching a few YouTube videos.
I did get it up - it wasn't really difficult or heavy, just something I hadn't done before so I was being extra cautious. It is level, works and I could do it in less than an hour next time. It helps if you have the ceiling medallion (if needed) & someone to hand you screws that fall.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OlympicsWatcher very nice fan
This is a very nice looking fan. It is very quiet, which is good, since it was installed over the bed. It took hours for my adult son to install, and he is very good at doing tasks like this. I had a different model of a Hampton Bay fan installed in a previous home, and it was a good fan, so I felt this would be a good choice. I am not using the CFL bulbs that came with it; I am using LEDs. If I needed an additional fan, I would buy this again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CL very functional
does what the manufacturer said it would do. we bought two; one wobbles a little bit, but the second rotates on axis. They are replacing two similar fans that ran for 15 years continuously. We'll see how these do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cbb Exactly what we wanted.
We needed a fan to replace one which had simply quit working. This one is even better than the old one. We especially like the fact that the light fixture attached accepts standard size light bulbs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by washushae Great fan at a great price
This fan replaced a Hunter fan, and of course, no existing hanging parts could be interchanged, but this was a breeze (no pun intended) to install. The 3/4" down-rod attaches with a cotter key and a set screw, which was differrent than the existing fan (which had a fitted 3/4" female pipe), so that seemed a bit cheap. It did balance perfectly after some concerted effort, so take some time and it will balance with zero wobble!
This fan has a beautiful finish, good looking blades, but I used the existing light globes from the old fan. I'm not a fan of frosted globes. Other than that, it's a quality fan, well made, looks great, and it's really easy to install.
