Rated 4 out of 5Â 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by cjghou Great performing fan ,,,
In the past I always bought cheap costing fans under $40.00. But I was having trouble in one of my smaller rooms staying cool. I did some research and realized I needed a fan that had a higher blade pitch and the number of blades did't matter.
This fan from a performance standpoint met my objective. Yes it was over $150+, but I am finding the quality and the performance is far worth the price compared to the low costing traditional fan I was using.
After a month, I am even running the fan at a low speed, as the blade pitch is enough to still push the air very adequately. So I am actually using less electricity.
On the downside, this fan is LED compatible, and I am not getting the adequate lighting using LED lightbulbs.
Overall if you are looking for a fan to help in a smaller space and not concerned about price, this is a great option.

Rated 5 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â by mibouck Insanely Quiet
I don't know what other reviewers were having problems with as it took my husband and I 30 minutes to install this fan. I would recommend that Hampton Bay include the instructions for where the remote wiring goes inside the fan, though, it was easy enough for us to figure out. It goes between the black bracket and the base of the fan at the ceiling connection for anyone who will purchase this in the future. It was obvious it needed to go there as it was a perfect fit.
The fan is insanely quiet, even on its highest setting. We didn't need to use balancers as it was perfect upon install. Purchase a 9volt battery for your remote and you're good to go! Though later on I believe we'll be purchasing a wall switch for it since the remote holster isn't the best and the remote itself is ugly.
