Overall we are satisfied with this fan, as it was replacing a 1980's one in our home with no light. The blades may be reversible on this one- one side is painted a silver/gray and the other is a dark wood grain. There "screws" that attach the blades to the motor are actually really neat metal knobs that have an industrial feel, something we did not expect based on the picture on the website. The motor housing seems sturdy, and the light globe is plastic I think, but you really can't tell unless you touch it. It has a very cool vintage look to it, and my husband says it looks kind of space-agey. It's definitely an upgrade for us. Installation went fairly smoothly with some small hiccups: the holes to attach it to the ceiling were drilled slightly off, but thankfully we managed to eek the screws in there. The wiring inside the fan seemed to be mis-colored also- there was a blue and white wire inside the fan, and there was a black and white wire in the light housing. We matched th...
We love this fan. It's sleek and stylish. Gets the job done and adds some flair to our son's room. One thing I noticed is there is a short delay before the light turns on after you've flipped the switch. But that could be because the switch is operating it instead of the remote.
Just wanted to say, I was skeptical of getting such a small fan at first. It was going into a small 10'x11' room, so we didn't want something taking up half the room. But when we got it up and turned it on, I was surprised by how much air it actually moved! With the plastic blades, I don't have to worry about them ever sagging, and with them being so light weigh, the motor is able to spin them at exceptional speed (Don't get anything caught in them while it's turning, OUCH!) it is able to move quite a bit of air in a room. Although with such a small diameter you're going to have a greater feeling of a directed current, but I wouldn't imagine you'd use this in a large room to begin with so it shouldn't be a problem.
I look forward to installing the second one!
