Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NotHappy nice fan but wobbles
After installation, the directions said to turn the fan on high speed and let it run for 10 mins to see its performance. It had a distinctive wobble, so I followed the directions to swap blade/arm positions, but it made no difference. I also had a weight kit from other fans that used to try and balance the fan, but no good. I then took all the blade/arms off and disconnected all the blades from the arms. I stacked the blades together and one blade was over 1/8" sorter than the other 4. I also noticed that 2 of the blades were slightly warped. I then ran the fan motor with nothing attached and there was no wobble. I attached the arms, ran the fan again and the wobble came back. I contacted Hampton Bay and they sent me a replacements for both the arms and blades. After receiving them I immediately stacked the blades and they were all the same length and no warpage. I then weighted each arm and they all had the same weight. I assembled the blades and arms, attached them to the fan and at high speed the wobble still occurred. I again use the weight kit in an attempt to balance the fan moving the clip-on up & down each blade, but no good. I did notice that at medium and low speed there was no wobble. So I returned the Hampton Bay and bought a Hunter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by meggo7 Amazing Fan!
My boyfriend and I purchased this fan to update and enhance the master bedroom for our house. We are currently redecorating everything in the house, which is circa 1980 to the present day trends. This fan is stunning! Not only is it great to look at but it also serves it real purpose as a fan! This fan moves air much better than the old one. Before we got the new fan, we were sweating in our sleep with the fan on high. With this fan we now find ourselves turning it down to low because were cold. We live in Houston, TX and a fan in the bedroom is a priority and this one fit the job! The light kit that comes with the fan is perfect; it gives adequate light and nice ambiance for the bedroom! Love, Love, Love this fan!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jaxen The Langston Is Grown And Sexy
My husband and I purchased this fan for our bedroom. We absolutely love it. We upgraded from a 52inch to this 60inch and the Langston delivers! It moves quite a bit of air. In Texas, the ambient temperature is 100 or more on a regular basis in the summer. We needed a ceiling fan that could cool the entire room. Our bedroom is rather large yet there is no area that this fan does not address.
With only two light fixtures and a tan light cover, the amount of light emitted is a bit subdued compared to our other fan (the downward facing light kit with four open-ended fixtures) but not enough to change our minds about the fan. Our previous fan had 4-60watt bulbs that emitted a total of 240 watts. We put 2-100watt bulbs in the Langston which gives us a total of 200watts. The Langston is a true workhorse...but is SO QUIET that we do not hear it AT ALL. To top it all off, it looks absolutely phenomenal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NevadaTerry Good value for money
This fan fits our decor very well. It was a replacement for a 13 year old 52" white fan that no longer fit our color scheme. Installation took me about 40 minutes. Because the previous fan had a white downrod I purchased a new 18” Oil Rubbed Bronze downrod (SKU # 107177) at The Home Depot to match the new fan finish. The decorative nut that holds the glass shade in place was defective. I called the manufacturer and they sent out a replacement part out within 3 days. Our fan wiring is wall switched for the fan and the lights so I disconnected both the pull chains. We leave the fan speed setting on the lowest speed which is 65 RPM. At that speed the fan is very quiet; no hum whatsoever, but still moves 2,297 CFM of air. There is a slight wobble that I need to address but other than that, installation was a snap. The fan comes with the light kit and two CFL bulbs. But we chose to replace them with two Cree 60 Watt dimmable bulbs (SKU # 1000003071) and a Lutron dimmer switch (SKU # 107177), both purchased at The Home Depot. The dimmable bulbs with the Lutron switch are excellent for setting the right mood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Klstaack It move air!!!!!
Over the past 3 months I have installed 3 different fans....they all went back because I could not feel any air movement.
With this fan I can feel a breeze!!!!
I installed the fan without the light kit....in my opinion it looks better that way...and it's easy to pull the chain to adjust the fan speed.
I have the fan running on high and it's not wobbling or making any loud noise.
Great fan....I will only purchase hampton bay fans from now on and stop wasting time with other brands.
I needed a large fan for a huge room and this meet my needs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Historyf24 Great Fan, Needs just a little more light
Just bought this fan for our Master Bedroom as the 52" in there didn't push out enough air since we have a large bedroom. The Langston has helped fix that problem. Lots of air coming out, especially when it's on high. Looks great, easy to put up and install. I did have to spend some time balancing it as it did have a wobble, but that's fairly normal for ceiling fans.
My only big complaint with the fan is that they really need more light. You buy a big fan because you have a big room. But two little 60w equivalent bulbs don't light up that big room. There needs to be at least three bulbs. Two is nice mood lighting but I feel like I'm squinting a lot in it. They are standard size base bulbs which is nice for replacement, no odd sizes or anything here. I definitely give it four stars as it is a great fan so far, moves a lot of air, looks super, and my wife loves it. If it had another light bulb it would be five stars all the way.
