Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Espejo Nice Quality Fan - Used Outdoors
As others have mentioned, the fan has a wireless "remote" but the controller is intended to be installed in a light switch outlet as opposed to being used as a handheld remote. The controller used a 9V battery to supply power and sends the signal to a wireless receiver that has to be installed in the top cover. I already had separate switches for the light and fan speed to control the previous fan so I did not want to use enclosed remote and receiver. Therefore, I did not install them but instead "hard wired" it to the existing wires that were used to power the previous fan/light. I had to purchase a 3 fan speed controller to replace the old switch in order to take advantage of the 3 speeds. It works great. I've attached 2 pictures of the transmitter (on the right) and the receiver that goes into a light outlet.
The install itself was fairly straight forward, especially if you have installed ceiling fans before. The one issue is the light was slightly off. I thought the light kit wires has caused it to not level so I had to the light kit off but still it did not work. Use my hand a little force I pushed up on the lower end and the light is now perfect. No big deal but just in case it happens to you you can try what I did.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jazzy0213 Low Light Purchase LED bulbs.
If you are serving a romantic dinner or want some ambiance with your meal, the lighting in a dining room would be fine. I was disappointed with the amount of light it out putted after coming from a fan light kit with 3 halogen spot/flood lights. Ordering 3 6w LED bulbs ASAP. I removed the glass insert in hopes of more light. If you look at the light kit, it has metal pretties coming down the side. Those create shadows. I had not thought about it. It is solid at the top, so no light shines upwards.
The in wall mount remote controls buttons are a bit small. If you have sight or physical problems, I would recommend getting a wall unit with sliders, or buttons that glow or light up. If you don't already have a hole in your wall, you are going to need to cut one.
I care for disabled and elderly in my home. I didn't want them having to reach up for pull cords.
The wall unit is a bit small for those that are challenged and until you remember which button does what, if it is in a dark area, no light on unit for buttons.
The living room, dining room and kitchen will be well served with this fan. Air movement is great.
My goal in getting this fan was to move enough air to get the fans off of the floor and move air down the hallway. In this area it does great!
Due to the weight, unless you work out or have a bit of muscle, have a fan buddy help you install.
Plenty or wire to work with. It says it is dimmable, not sure how as of yet without an actual wall dimming unit.
All in all, I am pleased with it's looks and installation. Disappointed with how it lights a 12' x 15' room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Engineer Great Fan / Light not bright enough
I am not sure how some people talk about adjusting the light level. The user manual does not tell you how to adjust light level.
The Fan installed nice, and it is quiet even on high.
I love the Fan. Lighting! I can't even see well enough to see some things on the floor. I am 6ft and have good eye sight. The Fan is mounted a few inches above my head, and does not light my 16ft x 16ft living room very well.

We actually installed two of these fans and they really set off the look we wanted! Easy installation, quality materials and looks amazing in our living room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sneakers Excellent air movement and lighting for pourch
Excellent air movement on all three speeds. Lighting is bright enough to read the paper disappointed in the remove as the info on website said it was a remote. Remotes to me mean hand held - not one that is in the wall. That would be a wall mount control - not remote. I wanted a hand held remote so was disappointed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HCRBoca Good looking fan and light kit
This fan was bought to replace an outdoor fan that has seen better days. The fit and finish is great. Because of the design, changing bulbs is a pain. I replaced the included bulbs with LED bulbs (and increased the output from 40 watts to 60 watt equivalent to increase brightness). Be careful if you use older or other remote controls. The remote on this unit is not able to handle a dimmer. If you accidently dim the bulb, you will get some flickering at the start. The included remote is a wireless unit that fits into an existing switch outlet. It requires no wiring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bohar Best fan ever!!!
This fan really moves some air. The extra set of blades is nice too. I use it on my deck and the lights are bright enough to play cards. I highly recommend this fan. Don't forget the 9v battery though, it doesn't come with one. Also, I get many compliments on the looks. It comes with levelers for balancing, but I didn't need them. Perfectly balance on install.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TNchicklet Best Fan for my Castle
I'm building a castle-like custom home and these fans fit perfectly. They are elegant, rustic, and amplify the room's décor. I changed the light bulbs immediately to give off more light than the standard mood lighting configuration that comes with it. My wife is happy she doesn't have to dust the bulbs or their sockets. They are enclosed in a seeded glass enclosure. This was a great purchase and the right price. The company has a great reputation based upon a quality product backed by superb customer service. Have you bought yours yet? :)
