52" 5 Blade Indoor Ceiling Fan with Blades and Light Kit Included
Beautiful, but not easy to reverse direction
This is a gorgeous, quiet, efficient fan. I typically use it on the lowest setting and feel a nice gentle breeze. The wall controls are convenient (as opposed to a pull chain) but there's one thing I don't like. Why do I have to climb on a ladder and reach over the top of the fan just to flip a switch to change the direction of the fan? My other MinkaAire fan has the reversal capability right on the wall control. How terribly inconvenient and short sighted. I would have given 3 stars for that, but I will only need to change direction twice a year. I would have given 5 stars if it weren't for this inconvenience.

Versatility and warmth
The overall combination updated my 20 year old great room. This fan gives you the option to vary the room lighting in a variety of ways with remote dimming of 100W halogen downlighting and 90W of incandescent upligting for a natural feel. Efficient halogen bulbs allow me to avoid a cold fluorescent light as well as the mercury waste when the bulb burns out or breaks. Its the right thing to do.
I wish the uplighting had a bit larger shade.

This is a very nice fan!
Install was not too difficult - however as always its tough to fit the wiring plus the remote all up into the housing. The blade attachment could be easier as well - that was a little bit of a pain.
But now that its installed - we love it! It's very quiet, and the fan and light controls work great.
Highly recommend. It's a gorgeous fan that looks great in our living room.

Love This Fan
Put it in a smaller bedroom - was afraid it was going to be too large, but it is perfect! The up and down lighting is exactly what I was hoping for. Moves the air very well, just wish there was one more speed between low and medium - but that is not much of a complaint because I love everything else about this fan.

I LOVE this fan! Looks beautiful. Love the uplight feature. Easy remote, really moves the air and quiet. We redid my son's room and now I want one for my room.

Great light, but wired.
This is a lovely ceiling fan, and it has inherent quality that won't leave you worrying whether or not it will burn your house down if you leave it on. (We did have that experience with the fans they replaced, which came from a national chain hardware store to rename nameless.) Only issue I had, it took me 3 days to install. I have a 100 year old house. The old fans ran on remotes. These require switches. I had to run a wire from the basement, to the attic, into the bedroom's inside wall and down the floor/ceiling to get it there. Whew.

I have 2 of these fans bought from a local lighting store - what a nice fan! Looks great. LOVE the uplight for ambiance or a night light for stay over guests. They are super quiet and move air well. Will be ordering 3 more for a new construction house b/c they look that great! Love the wall control too - very sleek and no remote to lose!

Just received and installed this fan. It is lovely, well made and very rich looking. Pretty easy to install. Love all of the options - low lights, bright lights, 3 speed fan. Highly recommend.

This looks and works very nice. It took a little time to figure out how to put together and install but working nicely. If there is one negative it would be that the lights are not as bright as we would have liked especially the down light because the glass is so heavy.

We love our Delano 52" fan. It is quiet and does
a great job at cooling the room. We have the pewter in
our living room and the bronze in the master bedroom. Both are pretty to look at and super efficient. I would recommend this even to family!
