68 inch fan
Contemporary looking fan. Has smooth elegant look to it - not too fancy. Fits well in modern home with high ceiling.

Nice fans. Move lots of air.
Bought two of the 68" versions of this fan. Install was easy. One had a bad light right out of the box. Customer service sent me a new one no problem. The fans look great, move lots of air and are quiet. Just put them up, will update as far as longevity.

    Awesome Fan, but documentation issue
    First things first - The single reason that contributed to me giving this fan a four star rating is because I purchased five of these fans to be installed under two outdoor structures (single fan under a cabana, and four under a 20x20 pavilion). I installed the first fan under the cabana using a 24" downrod and it worked like a champ. I installed the other four a week later under the pavilion in the same manner. Once the wiring was complete I turned them on one by one via the wall switch to link them to individual remotes. After they were linked I could not keep any of them running for more than 30 seconds before they tripped the GFCI breaker on the circuit (20 amp circuit). I did hours of troubleshooting to determine if it was my circuit wiring, but all testing revealed the wiring was correct and circuit would even run an air compressor and shop vac without tripping for 10+ minutes. So, I moved the cabana fan to the pavilion and hooked it up. It works perfectly with no issues. I hooked up the other four fans individually in the cabana and each fan behaved the same, tripping the GFCI circuit within 30 seconds of turning on the fan. So, I disassembled and repackaged each of the four fans and returned them to my local store and ordered four more. However, I have since learned through this products Q&A section that these fans are not compatible with GFCI circuits due to the variable speed DC motor and the transformer inside. This kind of information needs to be part of the documentation, as well as the information on this product page! A simple changing of the breaker for the lighting circuit to a standard 20 amp breaker would have solved this issue and saved numerous hours and frustration. That is why I am giving it an overall rating of four stars. But now for my review: Installation: Installation is simple, like other fans I have installed. I installed them directly to my 6/12 pitch (~26.5 degrees) hip rafters using a round weather tight light receptacle. The receptacle is a Hubble-Bell rated for 70lb ceiling fans. The maximum mounting angle, according to the product manual on page-6, is 30 degrees. The ball mount locked into the hanger and still has room to sway if needed at 26.5 degrees. On the first fan I chose to install the blades while the motor was hanging. However, I decided to install the blades on the other fans with the unit supported on a table which made the work easier and faster. I also recommend installing the light mounting ring before hanging, so the only thing left would be to screw in the light assembly itself (3 screws to deal with) and the globe while on a ladder. Operation: I attached a P-Touch label with a number for each remote to correspond with the switch number and the fan it was linked to. The remote seems good, but it is not weatherproof, so don't leave it on the outdoor bar/counter top during inclement weather. The fan when first turned on will move slowly forward and backward to align the brushes and then it will begin operating as desired. Even at medium the fan creates noticeable air movement. The operation is absolutely quiet. On high this fan moves air like no other fan I have had! It is approximately 10ft off the ground and the air movement at chair height is incredible! In South Alabama this will be nice on those hot sweltering days. If you leave the fan on and then turn the wall switch off (if that's how you install yours), and then turn the switch on later the fan resumes at it's previous setting. The dimming feature (holding the light button down) is great as well. The light is very bright on any temperature setting when turned all the way up. Appearance: The nickel gloss finish is nice and the color of the blades are too. Not exactly the color I'd like, so at a later time I may remove the blades and repaint them to my referred color. The blades are stiff moulded plastic, which may be able to be lightly sanded and repainted. Overall I am impressed with this fan. Again, the only reasons for my four star rating is the lack of documentation that this fan is not compatible with GFCI protected circuits.

      Excellent kit for the price. DC motor is absolutely the way to go, it pushes a lot of air with a shuttle gentle breeze effect. With the down rod attachment this kit has completely transformed my great room.

      This is the second of the make and model for our new home that we moved into 6 months ago. The previous one was for our Great Room and had a different make and model for our lanai. The fan for our lanai ended up having a product recall due to safety issues so we replaced with another of this fan as we have been so happy with in our Great Room. We didn't purchase it initially for our lanai usage as we feared it might be too large for the space at 68" (other fan that we got was 52") but it looks greats and the extra circulation (CFM) of this fan really works out well for this covered, outside space. In the end, it worked out with the safety recall of the other fan facilitating us getting another one of this model and we couldn't be happier and it is a really sharp looking fan also from a décor perspective.

      Best fan ever for outside
      Finally my patio is bearable in the summer heat. This fan really moves the air and I have a great light source now. . Was very simple to hang, less than 30 minutes.

        Blades started peeling after only 4 months and offcourse it is not covered by the warranty. Not enough air flow even on the highest speed. Buyers beware

          Absolutely stunning ceiling fan-- aesthetically and operational wise. Far exceeded all my expectations. Installed this from watching the video description from the Home Depot photos/videos of the product. Install took about 1.5 hrs which included taking down my old ceiling fan. Looks - sleek and very modern with amazing colors (i got the white base and gray fan blades). Operationally - Sturdy, super smooth and quiet are huge points of this fan, not to mention its large, angled fan blades move an incredible volume of air. I seriously can't say enough about this fan-- super impressive. Its addition to the living room really fit the look of modern/coastal I was going for, and I couldn't be happier. Highly recommend this fan for anyone who's interested in getting it.

            Although it looks attractive, the wood color is much lighter than what is displayed on the box & it doesn't fan much air on it's highest setting.
            Response from THD-CSJul 22, 2020
            Dear Valued Home Depot Customer, we're happy to hear that you think the fan looks attractive. There are a variety of factors that can affect the perceived performance of the fan such as the area where it is installed and the proximity to the floor or ceiling. If the fan is installed in an area smaller than 20ft x 20ft, the airflow will be negatively impacted. For optimal performance, the fan should be installed so that the blades are 8-9ft from the floor. If you feel the fan is not operating properly, please call Home Decorators Collection customer service at 1-800-986-3460 and one of the team members will be able to help troubleshoot and resolve the issue.
