Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by itsdarkhere Looks and works great.....Until it doesn't
I've had this fan for roughly a year and a half. Just this evening (6-2-2016) however the the lights stopped working. One minute they were on, the next they're non-functional. There exists no part to repair the control circuit, and I'm wondering how long I've got before I'm unable to control the fan speed.
When I bought it I had no idea that the remote was the only way to control the fan, but installed it anyway. It really is a great fan, slow quiet blades with a lot of airflow, but it's useless when the remote receiver dies and cannot be fixed.

The light wouldn't turn off when the fan was on, but I called the manufacturer and they sent a replaceent remote and lighting unit right away. It works well and correctly now.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Thurm After One Hour Light Stopped Working
So many poor reviews for this fan were related to remote control or remote receiver failure not long after install. I had hoped we could simply hard wire this new fan to pre-existing electrical wiring for the fan being replaced. This would eliminate the need for remote control and we wouldn't have any issues. We had a Home Depot contracted electrician do the install on a 20 foot ceiling. He informed us he could not simply "hard wire" into existing fan control electrical wiring. We were stuck with the remote except for simple wall switch Off/On control. After one hour of operation, the light stopped functioning. The fan and fan motor worked fine through all six speeds from the remote, but the light was dead. I had the electrician come back and he found the failure in the wiring providing power to the light housing inside the body of the fan motor housing. I'm not even going to try another Hampton Bay fan. This same, identical fan can also be found under the name "Amaretto" by Home Decorators Collection, which is also sold by Home Depot. Don't be fooled. This is why I'm primarily a Lowe's shopper and will likely be a Lowe's shopper exclusively after this.

This fan has great eye-appeal. It works great in the living room. We have gotten several very positive comments from friends about the fan.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FLHomeowner Transmitter for remote died 2 years in
Loved the look of this fan, but had issues with the motor starting the blades for the longest time and two years into owning the transmitter from the fan to the remote was fried. Go with something else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karen Very pretty, quiet and effective fan!
I didn't install so I can't really speak to it; was complicated enough (and we are smart enough) to let the pros do things that need to be done right. This is a lovely fan and looks so nice in a great room. Really circulates the air well and quietly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WHODAT Do NOT buy - remote control box - high failure rate
I originally purchased this unit back on March 2014. Since then, I have had to replace the fan twice due to the remote control unit (located inside the fan) failing each time. Looking at other reviews, it seems others have had the same problem. Unfortunate because it moves air really well - when it works. They just need to switch to another remote supply vendor or just remove it completely from the design.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beowulf Excellent Fan!
We recently installed 6 ceiling fans in our new house. This 70" fan is exactly what we needed in our large gathering room. It installed easily and works perfectly. It comes with a remote which makes using both the fan and the light attached to it very easy. I wish all ceiling fans came with remotes
