Rated 4 out of 5Â by jbreitmun Overall a very attractive fan that moves a lot of air!
There are two methods in the installation of this fan and instructions and parts to do either one you choose. Those methods are "standard" and "close-to-ceiling" mount. I chose the latter because of the location of install and ceiling height. I had to do a bunch of remodeling in order to fit and operate the fan just the way I wanted (i.e. reinforce the ceiling box and add an additional switch to control the fan portion and lights separate). The fan and lights can be controlled with one switch as it has pull chains for each but I wanted more control. After this task was complete the overall installation of the fan was relatively simple. I needed help holding the motor housing up close to the ceiling as I wired it but otherwise all else was manageable on my own. This fan seems well built with solid construction and expect many years from it. It also comes with blade balancers which is helpful to take away any vibrations. The light it produces is a nice soft light being very pleasant for the master bedroom in which I installed it. There was one little nick on the blade finish side (there are two finishes, reversible) I chose to use but not too noticeable to return. Otherwise everything appeared to be packaged really well and all parts that I needed to complete were included. Makes a very elegant statement in our master bedroom and compliments the cherry furnishings we currently have.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by kerndtsr Could have been better
Installed myself, replacing existing fan. Hamoton Bay does not make matching down rod for this item. Had to buy competitors product. Not impressed with either side of fan blade. Looks and felt cheap, had to stain one side to cover nicks before installation. It is quiet and did not require the enclosed balance kit. Good looking fan in our bedroom, needs a little more QC from the manufacturer.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JoeE Finally, a breeze in the room where we spend the most time.
The breeze from a ceiling fan makes all the difference on a warm day, and in southern California we experience a few 85-degree-plus days every month.
With this 52" fan in our kitchen/family room, comfort is a gentle tug away. The fan produces no sound of its own, nor is there any telltale vibration or buzz when you hold the chain, so you really have to count the number of pulls to be certain it's on the speed you want or switched off. On high, the breeze is strong if a bit choppy while medium speed delivers a more stable airflow.
While I couldn't totally eliminate a slight wobble at high speed, the balancing kit brought the wobble down to an acceptable quarter-inch, just noticeable if you're staring at the fan. Medium and low speed produce no wobble.
Despite the lamp bowl's beige tint, the light it casts is pleasing, even with the three included 14-watt twisty CFL bulbs.
My handyman brother-in-law and his stepson said the installation was easier than most ceiling fans they had put up, even with some of the challenging wiring in our walls.
The styling is best admired from a distance, as close inspection betrays the nature of the plastic parts, but then, what ISN'T made of plastic these days? Overall, it's a welcome addition and another step toward transforming our house into La Casa de Las Brisas.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by TheMan Dark brown in color
I purchased this fan for a client based mainly on one of the pictures of it on Home Depotâs site. One of the pictures shows it as light brown in color and the other picture looks like a mix of dark brown and green. I was hoping that it would look like the light brown, but when it arrived it looks dark brown. The client was okay with the color and I installed it. This ceiling fan was not hard to install and didnât take much longer than other fans that Iâve put up in the past. Running the pull chains through the glass and cap was a little different from the fans that I have previously installed. The fan motor is quiet and at high speed you just hear the blades moving the air. No wobble at low speed and nominal wobble at high speed. I really expected that it would provide more light than it does, but the glass tint diminishes the light lumen output.

Rated 5 out of 5ï¿½ï¿½by CAHolly Absolutely beautiful!
Hampton Bay ceiling fans are the most beautiful, well designed, durable fans we have found. Their prices are competitive and their products are superior.
This particular style is my all time favorite. It is magnificent!
Our decor is old nineteenth century furniture, this ceiling fan with light blends perfectly.
It really kicks up the look of our bedroom.
It is darker than it apears online, I wasn't pleased with the color online but loved the style. I'm really glad we ordered it, we were very pleasantly surprised.
My husband installed this all alone in about two hours.
It has a soft hum, nothing loud or irritating, it does have a motor, they will all make some sound.
It is balanced, not wobbly.
I want to purchase more of these for other rooms.
It is my favorite of the other four we own.
