5 Blade 44" Ceiling Fan - Light and Blades Included
Nice fan...problematic installation
The fan looks nice and seems well made. It's quiet and moves air well. The light is surprisingly bright...I'm glad we have it on a dimmer. The problem with the installation was that the wires were inserted into the Molex connector wrong. A power wire was inserted into position 8 on one connector, but in position 9 on the mating half. That makes the fan not work very much (i.e., not at all). So, after figuring that out, I had to do a manual connection (wire nut + electrical tape) outside the Molex connector. Not a terrible problem, but not one I think anyone without some electrical or engineering experience would've figured out how to solve on his own.

Great Fan for the $$!
This is a great fan, and NOT what you'd find in a typical home improvement store. It is sleek, SILENT, and non-wobbly. It looks heavy-duty and it is well made. The angle of the blade is important, as is blade length, so make certain you pay attention to your room's needs before you purchase! You will not be unhappy with this fan, it's great! I get many compliments on this fan, I'm glad I purchased it. Plus, LightingDirect folks bent over backwards to help me, answering all my Qs!

Don't like the motor noise
I wanted a quiet fan with a simple design for our bedroom. I love the way this looks, and I was pleased to see the comments that said it was very quiet. My husband installed it and the blade motion is in fact very quiet. The motor isn't, though. I hear a constant hum that keeps me from falling asleep. Now I admit I'm sensitive to noise, but my husband hears it too (though it doesn't bother him like it bothers me). You wouldn't notice it in a family room with activity, but every night we've had it on, I ultimately had to put in earplugs so I could relax enough to fall asleep. We have a similar-size Hunter fan in another room that has no hum, just the whisper of blades going through the air. Though we don't want to fool with it, I think I'm going to replace this fan.

Bought this fan for a spare bedroom to supplement the air conditioner. Installation was straight forward and the fan is quiet and efficient.

Attractive fan & light dome
This is my 3rd MinkaAire Supra 44 Oil rubbed bronze ceiling fan. In my Living room with 9 ft ceilings, I also bought a Supra 52 fan that dims with its own remote. The Supra 44 fans won't dim unless you have a wall dimmer. Only 1 fan makes a slight humming sound on low speed but isn't bothersome. The light dome is very attractive & sealed off from dust/bug collection. The light bulb itself is small & puts out a crisp bright light. The fans are nicely balanced and don't shake or rattle.

Love the look!
The man who installed this fan said it was very complicated and that he had to go purchase the right size screws for it because the ones included were too small. He said what should have been a 20 minute job ended up taking 2 hrs. The fan runs quietly and looks great. Haven't used it to cool yet because it's not hot here yet! I'd recommend this fan, but just be aware that it takes time to install.

We wanted a small ceiling fan with light kit for the work area in our kitchen. This one is absolutely perfect and was easy to install for my husband, who is handy. The light is brighter than I expected, but not overly so. It is exactly what we were looking for...a fan to keep air circulating when needed and a light to brighten up the prep areas. As usual Build.com, you rock! We have purchased many items over the past two years while refurbishing a home and will continue to do so through your network of companies.

I have bought two Supra 44 fans one in brushed nickel and the other in bronze. They are perfect for small rooms about 120 sq.ft where I use them. They are of excellent quality for the price, look sleek and modern, and move alot of air quietly. Be aware that the height of the fan is 16.5" from the ceiling to the tip of the light, not 11.5". This height is perfect for my 8 ft. ceilings. Would highly recommend these fans to anyone.

This is a great little fan. We purchased 2 of them for our 2 smaller bedrooms. Both fans look great, are quiet and operate as advertised. The only negative comment I have is that it comes with a 100 watt mini halogen light bulb. Wish it came with a more energy efficient bulb but that would not prevent me from purchasing these fans again. Totally satisfied!

Awesome fan and service
I ordered the MinkaAire Supra 44 fan for one of my bedrooms. It's installation was relatively easy for the installer and he said, "It WOWED him". Incredibly quiet and puts out a lot of air.
It came with the light kit globe broken and you guys sent a new one, no questions asked within the week.
Great customer service on your part.
