Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Salty Simple & does the job
I had purchased electronic radio wave ceiling fan controllers & had lots of problems . (1) I had to many radio control items in my home and they all needed t o be adjusted not to interfere with each other. (2) after adjusting them ham radio operators moved in next door , and because of the inference they all had to be readjusted again . (3) Finally getting them all working together , the static electric burned them out when I touched them. Saying all that , these slider controls had no such problems & they work great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fansman nice and Quiet
Quiet at low to high speed I was hooking this up to two outdoor fans but 1.5 amp will only run one fan so it blow out after about a hour of being on

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BJernigan Do Not Use for Fan Speed Control
This may mot be a problem for all fans but for the Hunter brand fan i bought with this, it caused a very loud electrical huming sound at all speeds. After a quick google searh i discovered that these types of dimmer switches are not designed for fans and may cause problems. Otherwise works good for the light portuon of the fan

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Airaddict Great product! Doesn't work with CFL's
This lightswitch was very affordable looks great and easy to use. It however does not dim with CFL's. As advertised. I will be taking it back off and buying another one that actually does work with CFL's. I would recommend this product to anyone that is not using CFL's

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYMoe Cheaply Made
Doesn't even have screws to hook the wire to. Forced to twist a copper wire with their aluminum wires they have hanging out of the control. Creates congestion in the box because you need so many twist caps. Bad for Heat dissipation especially with other wires in and out of box or even a double gang box with another switch sharing the box.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gonzo Functionally well-designed
When our old fan control fried itself out, I ended up replacing fan controls throughout the house to be on the safe side. This Skylark model was the perfect fit in terms of design and functionality. Easy installation and smooth operation versus the original controls that came with my ceiling fan, which was a clunker. A+ all around!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrTinker Features I was looking for
I stumbled upon this fan switch while browsing through HD. It is just what I had been looking for to use with our bedroom ceiling fan. I have never liked having to move a pull chain or wall fan switch through all the speeds when turning the fan on or off. This switch has a separate ON/OFF rocker switch and a three position slide switch for SPEED. It is very convenient to just leave the speed switch at our favorite speed (low) and just actuate the rocker switch, especially in the dark. The switches design/configuration matches the other Lutron dimmer switches we have installed for lighting.
Installation is very easy if you are replacing a wall mounted control. You just connect the black and white wires and the ground lead using the provided wire nuts. The switch also has a third wire (red) if you need to set it up for a three way switch operation. The only caveat is that you must make sure your pull chain switch is set for high speed before you install this switch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gary Works as Expected
Bought five of these switches for five Hunter 3 speed ceiling fans I installed.
Since this was a newly constructed home simple on/off switches were already in wall.
This made converting over to slide switch very easy.
So nice not have to stretch and pull chains.
They work exactly as described, also look good.
Get them. You won't be disappointed.
