We had some issues installing this fixture, but mostly due to existing electric box that was too small to hold extra wiring etc. Once installed, very happy with the fan and light. I wish the remote had a dimmer for the light, but might have one installed on our switch later.
The fan arrived and we fell in love with the look of it. The installing process... well... Hope you have little hands and are handy with wiring. From the mouth of the installer...Once the fan was up the wires were short so getting large man hands up into the fan was hard. Cursing and scratched knuckles inserted here. The fan blade colors are nice, but a little cheap feeling, almost a thick cardboard. The light is on the dim side, but I am okay with that. Overall, the fan works, it looks great and I am happy with it. But I didn't have to install it...
This fan was purchased for a third floor bedroom with a low ceiling so we needed something relatively low profile. The look of the fan is perfect and the price was great. It was easy (for my electrician boyfriend) to install. Only thing that is a little strange is the remote. Works fine, but looks like it's from 1982!
I have the exact same review on this product as "silvrfoxx" mentioned. I bought this fan on 4/16/13 and it stopped working just a few weeks ago. The light will still work but the fan functionality is gone. We have changed the batteries and the fan still will not work. The styling of this fan is great and looks great in our room but it is the only fan in our house so the fact that it no longer works is a huge issue.
I bought two of these, and they look really nice. However, I still cannot get one of them to light or the fan to work with the remote. I have tried several times re-installing the remote's receiver, and I have also tried several electrical rearrangements. But it still does not work. I may have to hire a professional electrician.
I get rave reviews from everyone who sees these fans. They were easy to install (I bought 3) and work like a dream. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the remotes. Easy to adjust the fan speed while sitting at my desk or while in bed. They move a LOT of air. I am thrilled with this decision. They cost a mere fraction of similar looking fans I have seen in the stores.
We first ordered this 2-light ceiling fan a year ago, and we liked it so well that we $XX.XX ordered a second one -- but this time the price is more than higher. That spike in price is the only downside I can think of for this beautiful, functional, contemporary lighting fixture. I was not sure how the three blades would work in comparison to the 5 blade fixture it replaced. I need not have worried. The fixture is substantial and well made; it is a quality addition to any room. Its 52" swath of blades moves air easily and silently, and the silver toned fan blades were just what we were looking for. The remote is a nice addition. We keep it in a basket with the television tools, so one does not even have to get up to turn a wall switch or pull a chord.
Loved the unit when purchased; however, 1 year and 1 month later the fan stopped working. Changed the batteries and fan still does not work; light does. Contacted Overstock Customer Care and informed that they don't have any information on the manufacturer and Overstock can't accept fan as a return because I have had it for over a year. I don't want to return the unit; just want info on how to get the fan working. I have ceiling fans with light fixtures in practically every room in my house and none has stopped working after a year of operation. In fact I have one fan/light unit in one room for over 20 years and still works fine. Not trying to get another fan and pay electrician to install; just trying to get help on getting the fan portion of this one to function properlly.
I had it installed earlier this week. It looks great, perfect in my master bedroom. It's modern with out being to cold. It doesn't shake or rock at all & my electrician asked where I got it because he really liked it. Down side: light is not on a dimmer & the remote control won't fully click close Not big issues for me, but might bother others

I have had this fan for a year. Since the beginning, I have had problems. It made an annoying whirring noise and the light was dim. Now it has stopped working altogether ... The fan part that is.

I bought this fan for the master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling. It needs a 12" extension rod which my contractor was able to purchase from a fan specialty store back home. Once the fan is turned on, it is very wobbly and noisy. I do not use it anymore for the above reasons.

This arrived quickly and in perfect condition. The assembly was not that difficult and we had it in place within about 25 minutes. The fan does produce plenty of air movement even though there are only three blades. The streamlined and modern look really finished the room. The light is not super bright but it is bright enough for our needs. I would highly recommend this product. We are going to buy another one for our bedroom.
