Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jj Bought this fan just under 2 years ago. Loved the looks, very quite and good air flow. That is until it just stopped working. Changed the battery in the remote - still nothing. Read the other recommendations which included getting a replacement remote/sensor. Except when I looked up the part number - it is discontinued. What the?! Now I have to take the thing down and haul into the store for a replacement?!
I am very unhappy that fans aren't coming with an option to hardware into a switch. This wouldn't be an issue if it had.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sierra Altura 68 in. Oil Rubbed Bronze Ceiling Fan and light kit
Several years ago, we installed two of the Altura 68" oil rubbed bronze ceiling fans. One in our living space and one over the dinning table. We really enjoy the style and air movement, so much so, this year we added two more, one in the master and one in the guest room. Delima! We needed more light in the dinning area, so for several years we searched and just could not find a suitable substitute for this stylish work horse of a fan. We have not had to used the air condition during the warmer Sacramento, Ca. months since installing the fans. This week we purchased a light kit, to give it a try. We thought it would take away from the simple beauty of the fan. We were wrong, the additional light enhanced the appearance of the fan. . We purchased light kits for all four fans, and are very pleased with the additional light and the sustained style. Again this fan is a work horse. I open a few window early in the morning, turn the fans on to draw in the cool night air. At one time we thought we had a defective fan, because it was not moving air as well as the others. We soon discovered we had forgotten to set the reversible motor for optimum air movement. I told my husband when we sale our home I am taking the fans with me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scoot Big fan of this fan
Fan looks great installed and good quality overall. Moves lots of air in a big vaulted-ceilinged room. We keep wall switch on and use the remote for speed/direction. Installed on a beam in a room with a high ceiling--lots of quiet air flow. Install was fairly straightforward. Thought of getting a light kit but prefer the looks without it. Would recommend this.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ricky Do not buy this fan! I bought 3 of them for rooms in my house and two have failed after 18 months. The receiver on the unit fails and the fan won't start again after turning it off. If you contact Home Depot they don't carry a replacement part and will only give you the customer service number for Hampton Bay fans. Finding the replacement part has proven difficult and is back ordered from Hampton Bay fans. My research on the internet reveals that this is a common problem with this fan. If two of the three fans have failed I'm sure it's only a matter of time before it's 3 of 3.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by aja1519 Just what I wanted
We had to replace are existing fan. The only thing it lacked was a light, but could be added for an additional cost. You choose from 4 models of lights. This was extremely heavy, and requires two people to lift securely, could be done with one if you mechanically inclined.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated Buyer BEWARE
I hate that I love the look of this fan.... I hate even more the fan's receiver!! We replaced it once already and I thought all was good. Yesterday, silly me thought to clean the blades and I turned it off using the wall switch...guess what, it won't turn back on...now we need another receiver only to find out they are discontinued! What is a girl to do???? Oh, I know, buy another fan that doesn't look as good but actually works!!!...#thisstinks
Oh, also, the air flow on this fan is horrible...really, all it does is lumber along on it's highest speed -- you feel no air flow...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rowena It looks great but there is a massive flaw
I have two in my living room/dining room and both went out after a power outage and now I need two receivers! Haven't gotten them and stil within the warranty period. They should supply them with extras if the fans can't handle an outage.
