Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by moira GORGEOUS but TERRIBLE wiring design!
It is SUCH a shame that the design of this is totally screwed up because it is a REALLY cool ceiling fan. Works really well in our 1920's home and gives it a funky yet sleek industrial vibe. There is NOT enough room to house all of the wires. My handyman(who has years and years of experience) took HOURS to get one fan up. TOTAL hassle(and I have 3 of these).
Several of the blades came scratched on the ends and needed touched up with marker.
That being said, I have 3 of these up (2 in a large kitchen/dining area and one in a sunroom). They are totally original and very striking- kinda modern, kinda industrial, and they seem to be working A-ok(slight burning kinda smell though at first, but seems to have gone). The lights dim for a nice effect(all controlled via remote control, which you have to program. I had mounted to wall by light switches.)
Recommend for the look, but HUGE HUGE hassle to install- buy with caution.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Christi Nice Fan - Great for Nautical Theme
We had this fan installed by a Home Depot recommended installer. He did a great job as we had no light in the middle of ceiling and technician ran the electricity from a light near the closet to install. Son's room is Titanic theme (a fascination that started when he was small) and this fan seems to be just the right look for the room but versatile enough to work with any other theme. It has both a modern and vintage appeal at the same time. Fan is quiet and puts out a lot of air -- he has needed a fan for quite some time and this one is perfect.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lile79 Great Fan!!!
I am loving my fan it is much better, as far as the materials used. And just feels more sturdy. The blades are a little lighter than shown on the site, but other that I am very pleased!color

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nico Light failed after 2 weeks and poorly designed.
First, the light failed after 2 weeks. It failed to dim and get brighter as it was supposed to and was stuck on one brightness level. Additionally, the fan is poorly designed. The housing of the fan is out of dimension with the fan blades. The fan looks weird with only 4 blades and the blades are alot smaller than they should be in comparision to the body of the fan. Just didn't look good. I was going to leave it despite the design element, but after the light failed, I took it back and got another fan.
Word to Hampton Bay: Add a blade and make the blades larger. They are undersized for the body of the fan.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by reviewer Not what I thought
This was the only fan we actually liked the style of in regard to matching our mid-century modern taste. We need a ceiling fan over our dining room table to keep the air circulation flowing throughout the house. I was hoping this light would be a lot more "dining room friendly" and instead it kind of puts out an obnoxious glow at full power that isn't really that great in our space. We waited to long to see if this fan would grow on us before deciding that we didn't really like it at all. Too bad. I wish we would have ended up with something that felt more cozy and gave off better directional table lighting. If they had other glass enclosure options we may be able to fix that but it doesn't appear as if they do.
The fan actually works well, and it's very quiet on the positive side.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kelvin Great looking and quiet fan with classical naval signal light aspirations
We loved the look of the Senze ceiling fan with light. In particular, the light reminded us of old naval signal lights still in use in some British ports. Installed as instructed with remote control and no hassle compared to previous cheaper fan installations.
