Delano 52" 5 Blade Hugger Ceiling Fan with Blades and Light Kit Included
Hands down this is the best ceiling fan that I have ever purchased, it is worth the extra money. It was packaged very well, clear directions, easy to install (it took about 1.5 hours) and the wall mount control is awesome. We wanted a fan/light combo for our living room and had no luck at the box stores finding one with good design that put out any light. This is very bright and the dimmer switch is a perfect combo. The fan is super quiet.

Very Good Quality
I've brought my share of ceiling fans over the years. I generally like the ones that are less than $300 but not by too much. At that price the manufacturer can afford to put in quality. That said, not all do. This Minka has quality parts (you can just tell) and quiet. reliable operation. Comes with an actually nice looking wall installation remote. Note: the remote is two wire and battery free (in my opinion the best combination) which you need if you are replacing a light.
Its a good fan that is not cheap, so you are getting what you are paying for. I just wish that wasn't so rare.

This fan is a show stopper. It is beautiful and the wall mounted control switch is great to operate. We were happy that it operates both the fan and the light from a single switch spot so we didn't have to have a double switch, and also that we could change the frequency on the switch since we installed two of these fans in our home so we could keep them from interfering with each other without having to buy more equipment. Only downfall: even with sturdy blocking in the ceiling to hold the fan itself, parts in the fan rattle and wobble just like any other cheap ceiling fan. We were hoping with the price that it would be built sturdy enough to avoid the rattles since we run one of them in our master bedroom at night, but the noise keeps us awake. Beautiful, but noisier than hoped.

A Very Sturdy Fan Indeed
I have been tired of buying cheaply made fans that aren't cheap in price. This fan makes me happy - my fourth Minka-Aire fan and again they didn't disappoint me! The mounting bracket on this fan tells its here to stay and the wall switch controls are a bonus pleasure (no more hanging pull chains!). The rest of the fan ain't too shabby either :) It is a very sturdy fan indeed.

Worth the money-Very quiet!!
Online purchase no problem!! Quick delivery -everything correct!! Had it installed - works great- light can dimmed and the blades also work with the push of a button. Best of all quiet and the 5 blades make the air circulate even better than ever!!

I love this fan!
We purchased this fan to replace the ceiling fan in the kitchen after a house fire and the need to do a complete rip and replace of our kitchen. The sq ft of our kitchen is small so I wanted to find a fan that was attractive & functional, but also didnt overwhelm the space like the fan we had before did. This fan does not dissappoint! I went with all oil rubbed bronze finish for the door levers, cabinet and drawer pulls and the sink faucet (which I purchased online from FaucetDirect.com) so I went with the fan finish in the dark restoration bronze-it is a perfect compliment! I also like the fact that we dont have the dangled pull strings-the remote control is small, very easy to use, and mounted below the switch for the ceiling lights/cans. This fan is a flush mount, again, keeping the fan closer to the ceiling so it isnt the focal point in the room but still very attractive. I get compliments on it all the time. Lastly, you wont hear a sound when it is on-it doesnt rattle, or shake like a lot of fans do. Well worth the money, I highly recommend this fan!

The MinkaAire Delano ceiling fan is exactly as described. It is flush-mounted and works perfectly in our bedroom. The quality of the fan is exceptional. We are truly pleased with the functionality and craftsmanship of the fan.

Great Fan -- love it
I bought this fan/light combo for a small renovation I was doing in my bedroom. The fan is beautiful and really quiet. And, it cools the bedroom down very nicely. This fan exceeded my expecations and I would highly recommend it. It was worth every penny.

Quiet Old World Look & Charm
Fan is gorgeous, well-built and runs smoothly and quietly. The amber lighting adds a soft glow to the room. We bought this model for our total kitchen remodel. It was the perfect choice. Customer service and shipping were A+.
