Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Displeased Fan does not work on Hi setting
This fan was the most difficult of the Hampton Bay fans that we purchased. It always seemed slower than the others, but thought nothing of it until recently when it became hotter. We usually kept it on the medium setting, but noticed when we tried the HI setting it was now slower than it has previously been. We called the manufacturer ( Home depot) and was initially met with a very rude customer service personnel who decided to blame us for not noticing or reporting the problem earlier. When she was questioned about her behavior, she hung up the phone. We called back and spoke to another person who recommended a product that controls the speed. We were charged for the part which did not work when we installed it and are not able to get a full refund even if we tried. So now we are stuck with a $150 fan that doesn't work properly. I believe that either the motor that is faulty or it's just not a good product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hvr949 Love this fan.
Things I love about the fan: looks like it is high quality (I hate those fans where the blades look cheap), extremely quiet (can't even tell that it's on).
The other reviewers are accurate about installation. The wiring on the remote receiver is too short and makes it difficult to insert the receiver into place once all of the wiring in hooked up. I unhooked the wires and re-attached them after getting the receiver in place. Other than that, install is not too bad.
Also agree that the remote looks pretty dated, but it works and i keep it in a drawer anyway. Don't forget the 9v battery.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jonathan nice fan!
These fans are very nice and contemporary-looking. We bought 2 on sale for around $100 each. It was a great deal for the money. One fan didn't work after we installed it, so we had to return it to the Home Depot store and get a new one. As with all Hampton Bay fans, it is a BIT hard to install, because it is hard to squeeze the receiver into the space at the top of the fan assembly without pulling apart all the wiring connections you have just twisted together. But once you figure it out with one fan, the other fan installations go much quicker. Works great, looks great, is quiet, and we are happy with our purchase.

I have 2 of these fans in my home. One in my bedroom and the other in my living room. I love the style and look. More importantly they are very quietly. The fans also give a nice breeze even at the low speed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SweetEddieD Sure it looks great but...
This is about the 5th ceiling fan I've installed, and I have never had one wobble before. This one starts to develop a bad wobble when it is set on medium or higher. It also makes an annoying clicking sound when on high. Light is not bright enough for a 12'x15' room. Need to use extra floor lamps. Other than that, looks great, and moves a lot of air. I'm hoping the issues will get solved when the included balancing kit is installed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kiwisgirl Triestes Brushed Nickel Fan
Fan is gorgeous and quiet, the light is perfect for the breakfast area and it moves the air gently without blowing everything off the table. However, like other reviewers, we had trouble with the instructions (we have installed several fans over the years and are not novices). They are very poorly printed, small type and diagrams and not very clear - my husband did not see the part about installing the controller until the installation was complete and then we had to take it apart and try to insert the controller - what a pain. 3 hours total to install, but we are happy now. If you have never installed a fan before, don't start with this one!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Curt ceiling fan
The fan is modern in appearance, quiet and produces more air flow than the one it replaced. Because the instructions are not clear where the remote receiver fits in the assembly, the installation was somewhat challenging. I highly recommend the unit.

This fan is a piece of junk. I stripped two, maybe three fan blade holes trying to tighten fan blades to housing. Have also called the 800 number because of faulty part in stud/down rod. They claim to be mailing individual pieces that comprise the stud sometime next week.
