Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fan!! I could tell as soon as I opened the box that this was a quality product. The fan is heavier than most that are the same size which is likely why it is so quiet when running. It is very easy to install, clean and classy looking and very quiet (except on the highest setting - you do not hear the fan, you hear the amount of air it is moving). I love the fan and I would most certainly recommend it - the low profile is also absolutely perfect in my new kitchen. Everyone that comes in to my new kitchen comments on how nice the fan looks. I would recommend also buying the wall mounted switch (as the fan comes with a wall mountable remote which is nice but does not fit in to an electrical box) - by having both I am able to control the fan/light from either-both entrances to the kitchen. I love the remote too - great product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fan We were looking for a modern white fan to fit a small area. This hugger fan is really well made and looks great. Even though the blades are plastic, they look sturdy and are easy to clean. The fan is very quiet and provides good air circulation. We ended up buying the wall control, and find that we use that much more than the remote. This was my first purchase from Lighting Direct and I will definitely return as their shipping was very fast and their customer service excellent. Overall a great experience and a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good as a Hunter we bought this flushmount lighted ceiling fan for the bedroom.It is the perfect size for medium sized room.Installation was a breeze partley because the remote receiver comes factory installed. Fan blades install without hardware by push fit.The fan is whisper quiet with no wobble. Nickle finish is very stylish. Unit comes with remote control witch also has light dimmer.The light is 100 watt halogen and while being adequit could be brighter.Overall am very pleased with this purchase

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good and bad This is a really cool fan and it looks great in our spare bedroom. I didn't give it 5 stars, however, because the very first night, the light cover fell out of the thing and shattered into a million pieces. Not sure why that happened. Could have been our fault, but it could be a bad design - there are no set screws keeping it in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from smart and clean We chose a white fan for our kitchen because we wanted it to be unobtrusive rather than decorative. Other white fans we looked at in stores looked "cheap" but this one looks modern and streamlined. Super quiet on all speeds. Provides a soft light; not bright, so if this is your main lighting for the area, keep that in mind. Our ceilings are 8 ft. and this fan's blades meet the recommended clearance. The kitchen is more comfortable now with some air circulating! Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Look and Great Fan We purchased this fan (in the white finish) for our kitchen based on the smaller size and height of the room, the modern look and style and the amount of air movement we were needing...and this fan satisfies them all. It looks great, it is extremely quiet and it fits snug against the ceiling, with plenty of head room. The halogen light is not real bright, but we have 2 other lights (over the sink and in the bay window area of the kitchen) to compensate for any extra light needed. This fan is well worth the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible customer service!! This fan was easy to install. It didn't turn out to move as much air as we had thought it would. Customer service was incredibly helpful and helped us to exchange it for the larger model. Now that we have the appropriately sized model, we enjoy it. It is quiet and makes the room much more comfortable. It was a pleasure doing business with LightingDirect and we highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle Breeze The Minka Concept II fan has made the H-H-H (Hot - humid - hazy) of New England bearable! It is very quiet so even those sticky nights will be restful. With only 7 1/2 foot ceilings, a "Ceiling Hugger" was absolutely necessary, and this MInka fills that requirement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful fan! We've had an old "but still working" (said my husband). He loves the new fan. It's modern but would fit in with most any décor. Easy to use and nice features. Took a minute to write this review as I'm on line to order 2 more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this light This ceiling fan was super easy to install. It added so much charm to my living room. I am so happy I purchased it. I read many reviews before purchasing. I would buy it all over again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad receiver I've had this for 4 years. It has been a problem from the beginning. The bulb had to replaced almost immediately, and twice since then. The fan motor is unbalanced - it wobbles with or without blades - and there is a "tick" with every revolution. Now the receiver has failed, and I can't get a replacement that works. Overall, a piece of junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product This is the second of these fans I've purchased. The first was last Spring from a local lighting store which I had installed by them. At first the fan seemed a tad overwhelming in the small 10x10 foot office space I'd placed it in but I got used to it soon and found it quite handsome. This year I ordered another one from LightingDirect and installed it myself in the bedroom. Installation was super easy (I'd had the brackets installed the previous year when the other fan was placed) and it looks beautiful. I did have a small snag with the two remotes being on the same signal but a quick call to the company's excellent tech-support got things cleared up quickly. Will definitely purchase another when I equip the kitchen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not brushed nickel throughout When a company posts pictures or descriptions they want to sell the product and this is sometimes their undoing. Description issue: The finish is listed as brushed nickel but that ONLY applies to the housing. The blades are actually a flat grey that borders on almost taupe. Furthermore they are plastic. Picture: If you look at the pictures the finishes appear almost the same between the blade and the housing. They are not even close to each other. Model F18-PN I'm sure this fan works great but if your expecting something like what is described you won't get it. Happily build.com was great about the return but I hate to see UPS getting rich off what could easily be avoided by a proper description. One star for quality of fan and one star for build.com but that's it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice fan!! I would give it a full 5 stars- if the lighting was just a;little better. I read other reviews that said the same thing- but because it was so hard to find a nice loking flush mount fan that didnt look like your "typical" fan- I went with it anyway. I get so many compliments on it. I used it for a nursery- it gets stuffy in the summer months- and it sorta reminds me of airplane propeller- which is why it looks great in my boys room. The fan is ULTRA quiet- a big plus for me- and looks great. the lighting could be brighter. Overall- top quality fan- and would buy the brand again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fan Nice fan. Was a little skeptical with having only 3 blades, but this fan does nicely. We have low ceilings in our bedrooms and it was a good choice since it's very compact. Our bedroom size is moderate (12x18) and cools the room down nicely. Very quiet which is also a nice feature since we replaced a noisier floor fan with the quiet ceiling fan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice look This fan is great for homes that don't have high ceilings. It looks great and is very simple design. I only wish the light was a tad brighter. You could use both the wall outlet and remote. Not one or the other. I've only had it for a few weeks but I enjoy it. For a room that doesn't have lots of room this ads a nice decoration and good lighting source along with energy savings for winter months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, easy install I have installed numerous lighting fixtures, including a chandelier, by myself (not easy!) while hubby at work. I am 40+ year old woman. This is the easiest thing I have ever installed. The remote control feature is excellent. I wanted a lighted fixture that was close to the ceiling and this fits the bill perfectly. Quality product that is beautiful as well as functional. Will be getting another for living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful yet quiet fan all operated by remote We had this fan installed just last week and I can tell you how much we love it - the install was easy, the fan is quiet and looks fabulous and it is so powerful so far we have only had it up to medium. I love the remote and the fact it has a winter and summer option (one season it pushes air up, the other down) fabulous...I am very satisfied with the product and the quick delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek Looking Fans I had seen these fans in a friend's home a couple of years ago. When I moved into my new home I knew which fans I wanted to buy. I looked online and found LightingDirect to be the best buy. I also found the customer service to be excellent. I have 3 of these fans now and love them. I have received many compliments and they work great:)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet AirFlo We have a small bedroom with a low ceiling, so this fan caught our eyes with its' flush mount and sleek design. I was glad we read the customer reviews and purchased a special mounting brace because the fan is definitely heavy for its compact size. It is super quiet on all speeds and circulates the air nicely. The only thing that is a little disappointing is that the light is really dim; it doesn't sufficiently light the room on a dark day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it! Love it. This fan looks beautiful and was easy to install. My son helped me. It is a bit heavy so I recomend a helper. The fan runs very quietly and puts out good air flow. I've never had a remote controlled ceiling fan before and find it awesome. I will probably get one or more additional fans like this to replace ones I already have since I'm so pleased with this one. I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product The operation of the fan is nice and it the design is nice, but the actual housing is a bit larger than I thought. If you have a small room it may be overpowering looking. The remote feature is nice as well. Make sure you have the proper support 'cuz this is no lightweight. Installation didn't seem hard, but I hired an electrician because I didn't have the proper fan box and support bar between the joists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best flush mount fan ever... Bought two of these fans for my teenage daughters South facing bedrooms that get very warm. Small rooms so used them for the primary light also. The white is nice and clean looking, the brushed nickel stands out more and adds more accent to a room. Looked a little bigger than online but they loved them. Queit, nice air flow, remote is excellant. Install was smooth with added reinforcement from hardware store minimal cost. I shopped local stores and no one had these best price was with lighting direct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fan For Small Kitchen Our kitchen is 12x13 and we purchased the 44inch and it is perfect. If it was my only light I would be disappointed because it is not that bright. My only complaint is that it is a flush mount and it does not fit right against ceiling, so there is a small gap. Overall love it and thinking of purchasing more for my bedroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice but large The fan is great, easy to install, looks good. It's the smallest fan we could find for our tiny room in an old house with low ceilings. It looks pretty big in this room but that's not the fan's fault. I wish someone would make a smaller hugger fan but if you have a tiny room with low ceilings this is not a bad solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fan blends into the ceiling Why do people install those hideously ugly ceiling fans with dangling tulip lights and a motor that hums and buzzes? I bought this fan in white so it would blend into the ceiling color and not be so obvious. Three blades don't block the ceiling like the 5-bladed one it replaced. The blades are airfoil-shaped and assembled easily into the housing with a spring-loaded "snap". It is quiet, with no vibration, and moves more air with less noise than the old one. Good value for the money.
