Indoor Ceiling Fan from the Turbo Swirl Collection
Product OK; installation instructions dreadful
Leaving aside the fact that one of the components - the metal canopy that attaches to the ceiling, and to which the fan is bolted - was damaged, the unit itself was of decent quality. The accompanying documentation and installation instructions, however, were appalling. I nearly gave up and returned the entire unit. The instructions appear to be generic, including (very poor) pictures of completely different units, and they are hopelessly terse. You are basically forced to work out to assemble and mount the unit yourself, which is exceedingly frustrating.

Mini in all senses
Everything about this fan is small, from the blades to the light bulb. Installation was easy if a bit tedious due to the way the blades have to be attached--but this also hides the attachment points. This fan has a lot of style. Looks great in a small room. The only negative is the limited bulb options to fit this candelabra size base--they max out at 60 watts.
Delivery notes: The vendor sent the wrong fans initially and Lighting Direct quickly fixed the situation. However, a quirk in the automatic package handling system (UPS based) meant that my Fed Ex pre-paid return didn't register and I received an email stating the fans hadn't been received. Again, Lighting Direct quickly and easily resolved the issue.

Attractive, Quiet, Excellent Value
I installed these in my vacation rental's two bedrooms so I needed something very quiet that could cool the rooms and add some light. This fan works great and is at a reasonable price. It looks nice; it is well-made. You can either turn it on with the pull chains or have your electrician connect it to a wall switch.

After searching local stores for a small blade fan I gave up and searched the web. After many looks at limited choices, I found this fan. It is great wonderful size from the ceiling, small blades with power and attractive in my remodeled kitchen. Don't pass this one up for the price it is excellent!

This is our second Turbo Swirl Fan.... There's no question about it's air moving and cooling performance.
We're using this one in the entry hall.......what a difference these small blades make.
My neighbors are so impressed that I'm ordering 2 more fans for them. Not only am I happy, so is the neighborhood
The fan was shipped quickly and had no damage.
Over all very please with product and service.

when you overload a circuit and blow the fuse, the light on this unit may blow out. We've installed this fan in several rental units, and one not only blew out the bulb, it also broke the globe. replacement cost of the globe is almost as much as the cost of the whole fan. and it took weeks to get a replacement globe.
otherwise, fan works fine in small places.

Small, Powerful, Beautiful
Definitely a turbo fan! Half the size of other fans (really tiny!), it works hard. The colors are beautiful, a rich espresso that goes perfectly with my dark floors and dark wood furniture. Highly functional, compact, and perfect for small to medium sized rooms since it's not overwhelming.

Attractive but very poor air circulation!
I have a 11 x 11 bedroom and we installed it flush on eight foot ceiling. The air movement s so subtle, almost non existent! Reading these reviews I feel like I have an entirely different fan Maybe we need to remount and lower it using the rod?

Love this fan. It's on the smaller side and great for a smaller room. Despite the size, it really moves a lot of air. I love the clean, simple styling too.

Decent small fan
I needed a fan under 36" wide for my upstairs hallway. This one was just right - it has both up-flow and down-flow, and was small enough to fit. It's a little noisy, which doesn't bother me, but it could bother someone who wants a super-quiet fan. Overall, it's circulating air just fine.
