Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TominEG Excellent Quiet Fan
I needed to replace an existing Hunter ceiling fan with a 24" down rod that died after 10 years of almost continuous operation. The Sonic fan was the replacement chosen due to it's modern design and the Hunter reputation of producing good quality products. Since my ceiling angle was only 24 degrees, I did not need the Angled Mounting Kit. It installed easy enough since the instructions were clear and straight forward. The new fan is very quiet and after balancing the blades, has no wobble at all. I found that choosing a ceiling fan comes down to 3 issues: looks, price and reliable operation... This fan seems to have all three issues well handled.

The fan is an appropriate size for our space (10x20). The motor is pleasantly quiet and our installer had no problem with the installation. The 3-speed remote affords variable air movement. If you like the look, it's the fan for you.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by grgcombs It works, but installation was awful
The instructions are poor by any standards. The parts bags aren't labeled clearly. What would normally be a 30-45 minute One-person job actually took 2-3 hours for two.
The fan works fine, but it's no thanks to the clarity of the instructions. Moreover, replacement of the downrod was not covered in the included materials at all. YouTube helped, but wasn't specific enough. Thanks Hunter. Not buying a fan/light from them again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by J33P Great Hunter fan as usual
I love this fan. I have always had Hunter fans but some reviews on other websites were not that encouraging as to the noise. There is not a bit of noise with this fan and it looks so sleek snd modern.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JinKS Nice, stylish fan for the money
I have to say I don't like this fan quite as well as the one it replaced, but it came as close as anything I found and was more affordable than most. I would have liked the light to be dimmable and it's not as quiet as my other ceiling fans (or maybe the noise is just more noticeable since it's in the bedroom). The remote it nice, but it has a small light that flashes when a button is pressed and although it is a small light, it is incredibly bright in a dark room in the middle of the night.
But overall, it is a nice fan and the above comments are more for information than a reflection on my overall opinion of the fan.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MultiverseMike Nice, but a few drawbacks
It's a very nice-looking, well-made, and fairly quiet fan, but we probably wouldn't choose it again if the need arose. Main reason: the remote is a flimsy plastic thing that mounts loosely in its holder, so turning the fan or light on or off, or adjusting the speed, lacks any kind of positive feel. Add to that the fact that it has no pull-chain or any other method of control and you realize that flimsy remote is a critical item -- too critical for comfort, in our view. And spare remotes are shockingly pricey (more than a third again the price of the fan). Our household has about 15 remotes for various purposes, and this one is by far the least substantial.
We do love the fan; we just hope the remote never gets lost or damaged (or fails) while the fan is on, and we regret not thinking that through.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FanofFans Beautiful Design, but
Very handsome and sleek design. We like the remote feature, especially how it has a little holder that you can mount on the switch cover.
The light kit is tricky to install, with very little clearance. It is also worth noting that there is a special bulb that comes with the fixture, and it's the only kind that fits with it. The quality of the light is eh--not very warm.
Overall, a good product.

I like the minimalist design of this fan. It runs quiet and looks great! I would have given the 'Quality' and 'Excellent' rating, had it not been for a little trouble with the installation. It has to do with installing the blades. The internal rubber bushing easily came off (I question if it was installed properly or worked its way loose in shipment) and I had to fish it out with some needle-nose pliers. The installation instructions could have been more descriptive and cautioned about this. Instead, because the bushing came off, it cause the blade to get stuck in the slot at the wrong angle. I slightly nicked the blade trying to get it back out. Nothing big enough to worry about returning and I'll probably be the only one who would ever notice.
