Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 565
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 100yrHouse Fan went together fairly well with one catch, literally. The chain is easy to get caught in the fan innards before it goes through the hole in the frosted glass shade. I thought it was broken until I untangled the chain. Has worked fine since.
It moves air well enough in the small room where we use it, and it is relatively quiet, no complaints there. It also looks nice -- suits the room.
The biggest problem has been the lights. The three 40W candelabra bulbs are quite small for their wattage and burned out quickly. The only bulbs that size sold at the local store are nightlight replacements, about 7w (or the LED equivalent), which is not nearly enough light, or conventional candelabra bulbs, which are too large to fit in the housing. Replacement LED bulbs are available online, but it would be better to be able to get them locally from the place that sold us the fan...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Instructions need help and the kit is missing pieces
The fan is made in China. The instructions, they too are made and written in China. Some of the graphics don't match up with what is being (or attempting to be) said in the written instructions. Page 4 of the instruction guide, step 1. "Connect the ground cnductor of the 120V supply (this may be a bare wire or a wire with green colored insulation) to the green ground lead(s) of the fan (Figure 6)." Cnductor is conductor.
As for missing parts... Previous experience buying Hampton Bay fans from HD have always proven to be missing something important causing repeated trips to HD for replacement fans. I knew that I was going to be missing something this time around and sure enough, I was missing all the electrical nuts. Fortunately, I have those on hand. I was also missing 3 screws/washers to secure the fan blades to the fan. Again, I used the screws and washers from the fan I was replacing.
Regarding ease of installation, it was not as easy as you'd hope. Because this was a flush mounted fan the decorative housing engages several mounting points on the chassis of the fan thus forcing the housing to become flush with the ceiling. I have a feeling that my ceiling in the area where the fan was to mounted had a differing densities of skim coat resulting in a difficult mounting. The person I recruited to help me with the install insists that the guide points on the chassis were off. I noticed that one of the points was seemingly off, but I think my mounting issues were really related to the skim coat on the ceiling.

difficult to assemble and install because the screws are extremely small and difficult to hold on to. I assembled correctly but the glass shade is crooked.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Star Nice fan for the money
The fan was easy to install. The lights are adequate for an overhead. The fan runs quietly.

I did not personally install. A friend who is very handy installed where an old light was in the ceiling. He had changed out another light to a fan (different make/model) in another room. He said the first one was EASY to switch. This fan, was much more difficult.
