Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dave Great fan for low ceilings. Quiet and looks great.
I'm a big fan of ceiling fans but our house has eight foot ceilings and I'm 6'2", so I've been using room fans instead. After staying in vacation rental with eight foot ceilings with fans installed, I decided to go for it as soon as we got home.
When using the close installation method, this fan is perfect. It looks great this way too! There is so much less noise than our previous room fans and no floor clutter. My wife loves the clean lines of the fan and the "transitional" decor style. We sleep with it on high and it keeps the room nice and cool. It's not as fast as some of the previous fans we've had, but works very well.
Although some have complained about the install, I thought it was pretty simple. It took about the same amount of time as other fans I've installed in the past. I'm no expert and this was pretty darn simple, just the usual steps, which take time. I think I had it up and running in under an hour.
The light puts off enough room light, about the same as our previous light fixture, but I wish there was an LED option, rather than the halogen T4 bulb. The dimmer option is really cool too. The remote works well, but I may install the light switch version, we'll see.
I intend to buy three more of this exact fan for my other rooms once they go back on sale. Very happy with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Fan & Easy Installation
Ordered this fan online and it was delivered very quickly. The installation was simple and straightforward. No problems of any kind. The remote works as advertised and even dims that light (dimming capability was listed as "NO" on the website). I'm extremely satisfied with this ceiling fan and the entire process.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Waxwing This fan looks good but disappoints.
Install was easy until I got to the blades which took over 30 minutes because the pilot holes in the blades were so difficult to line up with the threads. After that frustration was over the final straw was that the remote doesn't control the fan well at all. Instructions say to run the fan for 15 minutes which I did. Then I switched on the light but the dimmer did not work. Light dimmed but would not brighten. Then the remote would not turn the light off or change the fan speed or turn the fan off. So I turned off the power at the switch to reset everything. Still nothing. With the power off I climbed back up on the ladder and made sure the antenna wasn't crimped. It was not. The fan was so much trouble getting installed that I hate to remove it but it goes back to HD today. A couple of pull chains would be just fine for me since my ceiling is not extremely high but the fans with pull chains are not stylish at all. I'll order a Casablanca. Sorry Hampton Bay.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Momof3 Mercer fan
This is the 2nd Mercer ceiling fan we have purchased this summer. Both look great, produce a cooling effect and provide nice, bright halogen light in the 2 rooms. The downside is now that we have installed the 2nd one the remote controls control both fans. We need to figure out how to have each remote only operate the fan in one room.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dave practical, stylish and whisper quiet! (shhh....)
OK: we bought them (two) and the electrician installed them so it was oh so easy! (He said so too.) They do the job in both rooms and they are even more quiet than we anticipated--the best bonus of our purchase!
