I went to my local Lowes, so I could see what I was buying - Lowe's selection was truly disappointing. I have made several purchases - sight unseen - through O.Com, so I gave this a try too. Ceiling fan was exactly as indicated on-line. The electrician who installed it also agreed - as indicated. We both noticed a HOWEVER - nowhere was the actual BRAND indicated on the box, instructions, on-line. It all turned out fine, but it was kinda odd. I would make this purchase again with no hesitations.

These fans were exactly what I was looking for but unfortunately cannot be flush mounted to the ceiling Once installed they hung way too low in the room. I am 5'4" and my head was less than a foot from the fan. My husband could not even walk underneath them. These were designed for a room with very high ceilings.

This fan is a great looking replacement for my bedroom. We needed to buy an extra piece to mount this extra close to the ceiling because of the low ceilings in our bedroom, but using those pieces, this fan now looks great. I really like the dimmer switch on the remote

These fans make me happy. My house is mid-century modern and the fans' contemporary style is just right for it: clean and minimal. They run very, very quietly and do not wobble. I bought two of them to replace old-style, low-hanging bedroom ceiling fans. My bedroom ceilings are just under 8 ft high, so changing to "hugger" fans gives needed head room. I hired the installation and it went smoothly. My only problem is with the remote controls. Their buttons need to be pressed really hard to turn the light off and on and to change the fans' speeds. If this "tightness" doesn't ease up in a week or two of use I will call the manufacturer to ask for help. But I trust that we will work it out. I am so glad to have bought these fans!

We have purchased and installed 15 ceiling fans over the course of our marriage in different homes. This fan is by far the best especially from an air movement perspective. It is also very quiet. We are quite impressed. Plus, O is much less expensive than Lowe's. Overall, this purchase was a big win

I furnished my brand new condo completely from scratch, in a mid-century modern style. I have a 1950s-era medium cherry Danish credenza and highboy in the bedroom, and this ceiling fan fit in perfectly! This fan replaced a gothic style ceiling fan that had pull chains and hung down really low from the ceiling. No one knew how awful that old ceiling fan was until I replaced it with this beauty! Lovely clean lines. Very quiet. The light is not very bright, but it will do. I've got other lamps in the room anyway for task lighting. Oh, by the way, the light IS dimmable from the remote, which I think is really cool. The only ugly thing about this fan is the remote control, which is cream colored plastic in the shape of an egg, with gray buttons. I mounted the remote on the wall; not very attractive, but at least it's small. I'm thinking of getting one of those hard-wired fan switches to use with it. I do already have it hard-wired into the light switch, but that only flips it off and on, based on whatever the last settings on the remote were. So of course I need the remote for choosing specific fan levels. I love this fan. If you go to vivadowntown on fb, you can see my photos.

Nice contemporary looking, low profile, with good lighting fixture. I looked at big box stores and could not find anything similar. Most either looked clunky or over designed. This is a great fan when you want something simple with clean lines that mounts directly on ceiling.

I purcahsed this fan because I liked the way it looked. I was a bit skeptical because I normally buy name brand ceiling fans at Lowe's or Home Depot. My skepticism was extremely warranted in this case. I have installed literally three dozen fans in my home and elsewhere over several years. In all of that time I have never found one that is so difficult to put together. What usually is a very simple process turned into a few hours more than it needed to be when I discovered that the screws sent to attach the blades to the center of the fan did not fit the holes in the fan blade arms. The heads of the screws did not sink into the holes in each arm so they had to be file by hand until they did. What an incredible pain to pay so much for a product and have to remake part of the product so it fits. Never again will I purchase a ceiling fan on line or from the company who made this one.

I got this fan for my bedroom. I like keeping the fan on all night while I sleep. It doesn't make one bit of noise! I have the little remote control right near the bed. It weighs next to nothing, so I just used double sided padded sticky tape to adhere to the wall....screws weren't necessary. My light switch is far from the bed, so having the remote is an added bonus to this already wonderful fan!!!! And it's really beautiful to look at!!! Oh, and since the ceiling is low, I didn't use the added extender part.

This product is amazing. It works very well in our new sun-room (with cathedral ceiling) to keep the air moving - even on the lowest setting. It's also quite a conversation piece! The blades tuck in over the light, sort of folding into themselves, and as the fan builds up speed they spread out and begin to look like a normal fan. When you turn it off, the blades slow down and just before the rotation stops the blades fold back in place over the light and out of sight. Really quite cool to watch. The only problem is that the length of the rod that attaches to the ceiling isn't quite long enough for the pitch of our room so we can't use the fan on the highest setting. Actually, it's not really a problem since the low and medium settings are more than strong enough to keep the room comfortable.

My wife bought this to replace one of those ubiquitous white Hunter 5-blades whose motor burned out. We are going modern with our decor and this fan looks like a more expensive brand's hugger style (there is no down rod and you install flush to the ceiling), which we wanted with our low ceilings. Clean, spare metallic lines replaced white perforated metal and brass pull chains that hit you in the face when you walk around at night. Operation in 1st 24 hours is quiet (minimal hum), no complaints about air movement but it's only a 10x12 bedroom, remote control works, install is easy if you know DIY electrical (I consulted web when I got confused), able to wire light to the switch and the fan to the remote via 2nd existing hot and we like that the light kit uses 2 regular Edison bases for CFLs up to 20W. Light kit is cheaply made - this means do not exceed 20W in case of fire and we had to make adjustments to flanges so it didn't look so lopsided - makes me think that quality not great based on another reviewer's comments. Overall we're happy with the look and price so ordering a 2nd to replace another aging 80s fan.

I simply felt in love with this fan, or this lamp when is not a fan. Unique design and great idea to hide the blades when not in use. Downside... the price, a bit expensive although cheaper than lowes, about $100.00 cheaper. Overall happy with the product.

Love this fan/light. It looks sleek and puts out decent air movement. We have so much fun showing guests how it works. Be careful when assembling main hanging rod as it has locktite on the threads. If put on backwards it will be a son-of-a-gun to get undone (don't ask how we know that). It is available as a special order through Lowe's at a higher price, so we feel we got a great deal through Overstock.com.

We saw this fan at a friend's house and loved it. The blades retract and are hidden when it's off. Just looks like a light. The blades come out a little on low speed and expand out more each time you turn up the speed. It's a neat concept. We have it in our office for when it get's too warm in the afternoon. Since we knew what we were looking for, we shopped around. This was the best price by fifty dollars and free shipping. It was delivered within a week. So, I don't think you can beat Overstock's prices and service. It keeps us coming back.

Fan installs fast and works great. We like the look and remote. The only negatives are light bulbs need to be low profile in order to fit such as CFL. It may be hard to find really bright lights that can fit. Fan blades are flimsy and had some depressions but wasn't noticeable since it was only on the darkwood side. Other than few issues, all 3 fans are fantastic.

I bought this fan for my garage. It looks right at home there. The included remote uses a 9v battery but works very well. While the noise level is very low, I might not want this unit for my bedroom.

I ordered this fan because it met all my needs; finish, light & low profile. I had it professionally installed, but that didn't help the poor quality. First of all, the light is terrible. I bought 3 different light bulbs thinking that was the issue (it wasn't). And lastly, it's sooo loud! I can't stand having it on, it's actually distracting. I've been happy with every product I've made at Overstock, but this fan is as bad as it can get. Overstock's customer service is awesome, thank you!

This fan is a piece of crap. I can't believe I ordered it, but it looked so nice. When it arrived, I saw that it was made by Harbor Breeze, the in-house brand for Lowe's. No where on Overstock was this made clear. Since we really liked the fan, we installed it anyway, only to find out that the remote for the fan did not work. We could either have a light or a fan. We called the number on the box and were told that a part would arrive in 8 weeks, which gave us the option of still returning the fan. It didn't arrive for 16, and the fan still doesn't work. I had learned in the pass never to buy from Harbor Breeze, but now I know not to buy any type of fixture from Overstock where the brand is not clearly displayed. It is past the point where I can return this, so don't make the same mistake - there's no extra warranty with these things.

This fan is exactly what I was looking for to put in my sunroom. I needed a light attachment to complete the use and I found one at Lowes to match the faux, white , wicker look that fit perfectly. So pleased with this purchase.

I love the style and design of this fan and it works great due to the wider blades. The fan arrived without its remote but Overstock parts department sent me another asap. As I write this a year has gone by and the remote had stopped working so I had to call an electrician back with his 16 ft ladder to remove the unit since when it goes bad the fan just stops working. So = don't use the remote although it was VERY convenient, we not have it connected to a wall switch for the different speeds. We purchased a 5 ft downrod from Lowes who stocked the correct brand to work with this brand of fan which is awesome. I would submit a photo if I could, it looks great installed in tall vaulted room. Its quiet as a ghost whisper (in fact you cant hear it at all}. The dark blades with the Nichol trim is an elegant combination. Thank you Overstock
