Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Russ great looks, quiet
The fan looks great with its unique curved blades. It was easy to install. I swapped out the downrod for a longer 12 inch due to sloped ceiling. Its very quiet. The included light is pretty bright and in our 14 x 15 master bedroom, I barely turn the light up. Works well as a night light too at its lowest setting. The remote is simple, with logically laid out buttons and is easy to operate. No complaints here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MisterM Fantastic Circulating Fan
The Sidewinder is an excellent fan. The first one I owned lasted 10 years before the motor burned out. It is a very nice looking fan and circulates air like a fan should. The blades are larger and there is less gap between them, than there is on other fans. We can feel the air circulating in the room very well. It is very quiet, has a bright light and a remote control that operates both the fan and light. The fan requires the remote control to operate it as there are no chains for the fan and light like other fans. The light can be operated by the remote or the light switch on the wall. I cannot comment on ease of installation because the electrician installed it, however it was put together and installed in a relatively short period. I didn't look at the clock, but it was probably 1 1/2 to 2 hours time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by durangorob Great Fan for a Cowboy Fan !!!!!
Only had this fan up for one day now, so this review will lack long term use. I have installed over a dozen fans and this one was bit harder than most. Tightening the two small shoulder screws to hold up the canopy was a bit challenging as there is not much room between the canopy and the top hood cover on top of the motor. I had to use just a screwdriver bit and a short holder that fits a drill and use my fingers. If you are installing a longer down rod then you could use a normal screwdriver. Attaching the blade arms to the motor is also tedious as you only a small window to insert the mounting screws one at a time as you are trying to hold the blade in position while you are fighting gravity. Once installed though, I love this fan. It looks awesome, build quality is very good, the light is bright (100 watt halogen) and really illuminates the bedroom and I love how the light will dim as you continue to hold the light button on the remote. This fan is quite and will really move the air too. Be sure you go and buy an A3 battery for the remote before you install the fan, because it is not included in the box. ( you would think they would include the battery for a fan of this cost ) I wired it to just a on/off wall switch, so once the light is turned on by the remote, I can turn the light on and off with the wall switch and it will keep whatever the light level the fan was dimmed at the same level. The other thing I wished it had was the ability to reverse the direction of the fan from the remote. It has switch on top of the motor to do that, but it will reverse. Just not handy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TXHandyman Looks Great
I didn't do the installation, but at first the fan ran practically silently. After about 3 days it developed a "ticking" sound like something had come loose and was hitting the housing as the blades rotated. The contractor came back out and adjusted the fan, and now runs silently again.
Looks great, especially with the 24" brushed nickel down rod I purchased.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CDH Pretty and functional, has flaws
The fan is beautiful and the air it moves it quite impressive. However, the light comes on all by itself as does the fan.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sj Excellent purchase .
The installed fans are very attractive and do a great job. The only small issue i have is that both fans emit a slight humming noise when on, otherwise we are very happy with the quality and performance of the fans.

Best air circulation I've ever seen in a ceiling fan. Light not very bright. Not an easy instal at all. Be prepared to use many more hours than intended installing this fan.
