This is a great fan. Whisper quiet, 3 speeds, and can run fan with light off. The design is lovely and the blades retract and open beautifully. The only thing I didn't know - - or didn't sink in before purchase - - is that the light is a circular fluorescent tube. That's perfect for a kitchen, etc. The light is VERY bright. For the bedroom (where I put the second fan I purchased), I'd like to see if I can get a light that's more natural, less harsh, and if I can install a dimmer.
Aside from the sleek look, and the surprise value when demonstrating for friends, the unobtrusive design, and silent operation(!) make this a must have item. It looked difficult to install. Fortunately, there were professionals available to do so. My only issue is with the fluorescent whiteness of the light. I now have to figure out how to access the light to either add a gel or paint inside the glass to soften the color.
I love the clean lines of this fan. I bought it as a replacement for a standard, fussy style one and it is everything I hoped for. When my installer opened the box, he said: "Aha...the Jetsons!" It looks beautiful when not working, and is stunning when the fan is on. The only negative is that the fluorescent light is way too bright, and would better suit an interrogation room. However, I've toned it down by putting agate slices in the shade. The price was excellent - way cheaper than I could get it anywhere else, and it arrived quickly. As usual, thank you Overstock! You never disappoint!
We needed a fan for the kitchen and wanted something that wasn't too intrusive as our ceilings aren't very high. Love the idea of retractable fan blades and Hunter is known for quality. Everyone that has seen the fan comments on it and asks where we got it, the electrician that installed it also thought it was really cool!
I've had this fan for over a year and although I really likes the idea initially, I would go for a more "normal" fan. It makes noise whenever it opens or closes the blades. There is significant dust buildup on the blades and it is difficult to clean the clear blades properly. The light is very bright and harsh. It is a really cool fan, but not ideal for a bedroom.
I saw this fan in my customer's home and I was very excited. I loved it. I ordered it from XXXXXXXXXXXX.com. and they did not send the product. A bad company. (DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING FROM XXXX XXXXXXXX.COM, A SCAM) I I then ordered it from a trusted company, OVERSTOCK. COM. It came on time, as a matter of fact, before the estimated time. I had it installed and it surprised everyone with its unique hideaway feature. It is quiet and very beautiful. The only drawback is the extension pole that comes with the fan was too short, but that doesn't take anything from the fan. I give it a 10 +
This fan is awesome. Love that the blades retract. It is silent - seriously NO noise. Puts out great lighting, soft white. FYI it does not have a reverse option and you have to use the remote for operate the fan or light. The remote has a plate that goes directly over the light switch to hang the remote. It looks very nice. Easy to install as well
This fan was installed without a problem by a professional electrician. It is very pretty and the style is simple enough that it could be paired with many decors. When off, the blades show on my 12 foot ceilings. They may not show on higher ceilings.

See my review somewhere on this site already. Overstock doesn't remember it so I'll fill in this blank to make them stop sending emails reminding me to do a review. YES I really like the fan, so far. I'm just not sure it will work forever.

The Hunter Flyaway is a unique fan. It provides good air flow, and when not in use as a fan, it just looks like a nice light. The installation was a little more involved than just a regular fan, but it's well worth it. Love it!

I am very pleased with my purchase. It arrived very quickly. Big box stores wanted substantially more money than Overstock.It is a very unique product and works well. I know I will enjoy it and plan to look to Overstock when I make my next purchase.
