Earlier this week I had installed a Hunter Oakhurst ceiling fan and it was the 6th Hunter I've purchased. It was a major disappointment. The motor was so slow I could barely feel air move even when it was on the high setting. I should have read reviews about it before I bought it because my complaint was a common one among consumers who purchased this model.
After reading good reviews about the Hampton Bay Brookhurst, I took the other fan down, packaged it and returned it to Home Depot. The return went smoothly and I purchased the Hampton Bay Brookhurst.
I had read many reviews that mentioned when you mount it flush there are parts you need to remove and parts you don't use. I didn't have any trouble figuring out which ones but to help future installers of this fan, I am uploading a picture of all of the parts I had left over. You don't use the small extension rod, and you remove the cotter pin and 2 screws from the motor housing.
Like others, I had some difficulty getting the light kit wires into the small cavities, but that was about the only problem I encountered.
The rest of the assembly was fairly simple, but I've done many of these installations. I did trim some of the motor wires to make it easier to shove them into the electric box in the ceiling.
After I completed the installation I turned it on and was happy to see that it did have a healthy flow of air on high, much more than the Hunter that I returned.
By the way, when you buy a fan the two measurements you want to look at to determine how powerful the air flow will be are RPM and CFM. To give you an example: The Hunter Oakhurst had 141 RPM compared to the Hampton Bay RPM of 160, and more dramatically, the Hunter had 2049 CFM air flow, compared to the Hampton Bay's 4,469 CFM. These specs are listed in all of the Home Depot on line listings for each of their fans.
This fan was just $59.00 compared to the $89.00 Hunter and as far as I'm concerned it's a better fan. Not quite as fancy, but for an economically priced fan, you can't do any better.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Well Made, Fast / Speed, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
Cons: just having to cram the wiring into a small space

The Hampton Bay Brookhurst right after installation
This fan was to replace a smaller broken one. This is bigger than the one I had (5 blades instead of 4 and 3 bulbs instead of 1). It fits perfectly and I'm happy that it is bigger. The brightness of the lights are great! Even though it is winter and I won't be using the fan until Spring/Summer, I think it is going to be wonderful in cooling the room. It was really easy to put up. I didn't even have to read the directions. Very pleased!
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Well Made, Fast / Speed, Looks Great, Stylish, Very Bright, Good Size & Weight
I bought this fan after reading the reviews on here and scrolling through the cheapest fans for my home to help keep my old home cool until I get a in wall AC installed but until then this fan seems to be doing great at keeping the air cool and moving around the house.
I love the idea of having the extension or I can remove it for a closer installation to my ceiling but I chose to keep the extension on the fan to help move the air better.
I will sure recommend this fan to my family and friends and I want to buy a couple more of these for the other rooms soon.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Well Made, Unique, High Quality of Material, Fast / Speed, Eco-Friendly, Looks Great, Stylish, Very Bright, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, comes with energy saveing bulbs
These fans really move the air (the speed is adjustable) and the light is adequate for most purposes. I bought a house from which all the light fixtures had been removed and replaced those with these fans in every room. I have these in every room in my house, in my garage, in my store, and am about to order 6 more for a house I'm rehabbing. I wish my basement ceiling was higher because I'd have one there too! Having a fan really makes the air feel fresh and it cuts down on dust and allergens. This fan serves dual purposes--add light to the room at night along with the fan function. I looked at a lot of fans and these seem just as good as the pricey ones.
Great looking fan, the looks are a nice clean and simple design, nothing that draws your eyes attention in a negative way. I had to balance one fan, in a total order of 4. there is no hideous pin striping or etching anywhere. very quiet fan and pushes alot of air. Buy this one! Three flourescents are more than enough.

I am a 73 year old woman and I installed this fan myself. I would say if I can do it anyone can. I added a remote control Make sure you have your fan on high speed at start, by checking your speed chain setting. Everything worked out great. I purchased the white fan for my kitchen which is about 15'x15' with a large opening into dinning room. I live in the desert, and I have been amazed all day at how it has cooled my home. Its great! I am recommending it to my friends.
The fan is simple looking and looks good in our guest bedroom. It puts off a lot of air and cools the room quickly. It is perfect for our guest bedroom, but in my opinion not nice enough for our master bedroom. Great buy and exactly what we needed.
Pros: Functional, Fast / Speed, Very Bright, Good Size & Weight
I bought this fan to replace an old fan that was falling apart. This fan was very reasonably priced and it looks and works very well. It's quiet and moves the air up to my expectations. My friend who installed it wasn't crazy about the installation instructions but eventually was able to figure it out.
Pros: Functional, Looks Great, Very Bright, Nice Design
I had these fans installed for me, the installer had no problems with the installation.
These are a clean looking, powerful fan. My parents had to reduce the AC by two degrees because of the cooling produced by these fans (second floor of the house).
I bought these for the great reviews, high air flow, color (white) to match my white ceilings, plus for the price it had a ceiling light fixture included with 3 CFL bulbs. Unbeatable combo in my opinion.
A word on the light produced. Color is 2700 Kelvins, or warm white. Each bulb wattage uses 13 watts. The lumens produced is 900 lumens, which I think is outstanding. I was going to replace the bulbs with LED's but the lumen production is so much I am going to wait until the bulbs wear out.
I am very pleased with these fans. I plan to purchase two more to replace working ceiling fans.
Great value, great fan speed, great light, highly recommend.
Pros: Well Made, Fast / Speed, Very Bright, Nice Design
Quiet fan with great air movement. Installation more difficult for me because this was a replacement...had to buy an adapter plate to fit my existing electrical box and remove existing fan. Installation instructions were fine though. Great fan!
