I installed six of these fans, each with a separate light kit, in my rent house. I don't like the tulip shaped, three or four lamp things that are used with most fans. Home Depot offers a right side up frosted mixing bowl lamp option (different brand) that fits perfectly. The fan speeds are well chosen and all of the units I purchased ran without wobble, though one unit came with a balancing kit. The lamp kit uses odd CFL lamps which twist into the sockets like linear florescent tubes. The fans are quite and have a warranty. I installed them with two wall switches so only the fan cord is needed and that would be to change speed. The fan can be reversed using the on-board slide switch.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Eco-Friendly, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

As a woman, I was worried about hanging a ceiling fan solo. Instructions were easy to understand and with the aide of YouTube videos, I was able to remove the old flush mounted fan and install this Hampton Bay Framington fan using the flush mount. The wiring was simple (no light fixture) and the hook to hang the fan while connecting the wires was very, very helpful. The only thing I'd mention is that when aligning and securing the motor canopy to the hanger bracket, align the holes but screw in the removed screws first, then the slotted screws.
Pleasantly surprised, too, that the fan blades are white on one side and light "wood" finish on the other side. So, if you want a wood appearance, you can flip the fan blades to the "wood" side (see photo). Not so boring appearance!
I wanted a simple ceiling fan. It would do the job but not be the center piece of the room. Didn't want big ugly glass globes haning down. Didn't want a lot to clean. I found it plus energy star to boot.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Well Made, Eco-Friendly, Nice Design
Ordered 5 of these to replace 4 old existing fans and one new installation. Took down the 4 old fans and replaced with the 4 new in 2 HOURS. No squeaks, wobbles, noise.....didn't have to balance a single one. They are so quiet, it's almost spooky! I have absolutely NO ISSUES with this product. Have put up many fans in the last 30 years and I didn't even bother to look at the instructions, they were THAT self explanatory. I did not use the down rod, but I should mention these do not "Flush Mount", there is about a 4" drop to the motor housing. Clips for the blades are a MAJOR plus. Yeah, and I'm a 50 year old woman, 5'1, and 105 lbs.
The installation went quick and easy. The design and look compliments the room. Speeds are perfect. Couldn't be happier. Everyone admires it. Very quiet, don't even hear it when it is on, no matter which speed we use.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Well Made, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Quiet
When installing in flush mount option be sure to remove the two screws on the side of the stem mount collar on motor and the through-pin. Those obstruct the the fitting of the canopy to ceiling bracket. Overall very quiet too. Will buy another.
Thanks to all of you who wrote your reviews they really helped me figure out which was the best fan to buy. I bought one of the 52' Farmington fans for my bedroom and a smaller fan the 46' Landmark for the living room. This Farmington 52' fan was so much better for moving the air. I had a friend help me hang the first two fans. I was so pleased I went bought a second Farmington 52' fan for the guest bedroom and this time I had to hang it by myself. I had the phone close in case I had to call my friend who works in lighting. I was inpsired by Bernina from Paulden, AZ who is 50yrs old, so I said to myself if she can do it so can I and I am please to say I hung that 52' Farmington fan in 45min !!!! YES !! and on July 23rd before the temp hit 105f in NYC. It runs 24hrs/ day and really moves the air throughout my whole Apt. I think I will buy a third 52' Farmington for the living room and move the 46' one in the hallway. I totally recommend this fan, it is a great price and easy to install.
I bought 5 of these a few months back. Don't let this fan's low price fool you. It performs better than fans costing 4 times more. Its simply noiseless, no wobbling, easy to install. You really couldn't ask for a better deal. I replaced one of my Harbor Breeze fans with this as that fan wouldn't stop wobbling despite being new. No such problems with these fans. To top it all, these are all ENERGY STAR rated thus saving you in electricity bills also.
I found this ceiling fan very easy to install and it looks very nice as well. I was worried about finding a light fixture that would fit but the Home Depot employee recommended Whestinghouse 1-Light White Schoolhouse Glass Ceiling Fan Light Kit, so I gave it a shot. It took me quite a while to figure out how the light kit fit because the instructions weren't very clear but suddenly after some thought, it dawned on me that the plug in the ceiling fan "cap" pops out, allowing you to thread the little pipe that comes with the light kit into it. The white finishes don't match perfectly but it's not noticeable unless you stare at it and study it :)
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Fast / Speed, Looks Great, Stylish, Very Bright, Nice Design
I missed someone else's comment in these reviews. You need a special drive bit (like SKU # 564698) for the screws that attach the fan-blades to the fan arms. A special "key" or bit is not provided, nor is it called for in the instructions. We had to use a pliers at right-angles to the blade, in order to drive in the screws. Very time consuming and inconvenient.
This is a pretty standard white fan. The fan is sturdy, looks nice. Not a high priced designer fan, but it works great in a bed room. Straight forward installation. If I have another fan in my house fail, I would buy this again.

Simple white fan. Very quiet, so far. Looks good and works well, but there are black rubber things to help attach the blades and I don't like the way they look on the fan when the fan is installed. I have low ceilings, so they show. Other than that. Nice fan for the price.
I purchased this fan after returning a cheaper Harbor Breeze that was defective. This was very simple to install, the quick install fan blade system is incredible and I truly can appreciate it because I've installed many new fans in my life! :) I installed this fan in less than 30 minutes. It's very quiet and cools great.
