Customer reviewsNot bad, but...
Bought two of these. 1 in Bronze, 1 in brushed stainless. Have very low ceilings at points of installation, so I wanted a guarded fan. Was also able to shorten provided down rod by 1.125" and still successfully install on slightly sloped ceiling, allowing more head room. The remote's range is impressive. I can control the fans from the mailbox, outside and at least 60 feet away. That's as far as I took it, but I suspect that it's range may well exceed that, So one really needs to set the remote control pairing dip switches differently if installing more than one of these fans, and then hope that you don't have any close neighbors with the same remote on your setting, or you'll be operating each other's fans until one of you alters their dip settings The dimmest light setting is nice and low. The highest light setting is pretty good. The light is adequate for general use of the room, but not really the best for reading or close work. I would recommend additional light sources for that purpose. The fan is pretty quiet on the lowest speed. It is acceptable at the medium speed, BUT it is pretty noisy on HIGH. Interestingly, our brushed nickel one is noticeably quieter than the bronze version. They were installed the same way, but the bronze one is just louder... quality control . They are in smaller bedrooms, and the best method of use seems to be to turn them on HIGH, to get the air moving, and then drop the speed to LOW or MEDIUM for continued but quieter operation. For a small room, the air movement is sufficient, and the units look great. The included wall bracket/holder for the remote is a bit flimsy, and I'm just hoping that someone, groping for the light switch in the dark room, doesn't accidentally dislodge the remote and send it fatally crashing to the tile floor. That should be better designed. Overall, I like the fans, but I took off a point for the noise, and the flimsy remote holder.
