5 Blade 52" Ceiling Fan - Light, Remote Control and Blades Included
Bought this fan for the master bedroom. It is high quality, quiet (much quieter than the humidifier in the room), and was easy to install. Our only minor issue was actually caused by how our house was built. We have a vaulted ceiling, and the mount screws on the junction box are at a 45 degree angle to the angle of the cieling. This causes the ball to not seat properly in the mounting bracket, (or when fully seated it doesn't hang straight down, which is obviously worse). It works fine, but I'm the sort of person who's bothered knowing it's not quite *perfect*.

Great for sun room/enclosed proch
We had this installed in a sun room/enclosed porch. It provides a nice soft light which is what we wanted. It is not enough to read by.but we have table lamps for that. The fan is quiet.

Very high quality fan - looks great in my living room. I love the brushed nickel finish and the remote control feature. The only change I would make is to offer a shorter down rod.

Minkaaire ceiling fan
I had an electrician come out and install this fan since it was in a location not easily accessible and it didn't have power run to the ceiling. But he mentioned installation was as easy as any other well built fan. My wife and I love it. It's in our master suite and is very quiet. I've bought some of the cheaper fans from other retailers and you wind up with motor "buzz". This fan is totally silent, which is great for undisturbed sleeping!

Beautiful, quiet, functional
I bought this fan for the kitchen and it looks absolutely gorgeous. I love it! I looked for a long time before finally finding the perfect fit and this was it. It works well, looks beautiful, and functions perfectly. I like having the remote, but need to know where I can find replacement batteries. I have never seen a battery so small in my life. Also, there was a wall mount remote that was in a separate box, I did not know it was in there and the electrician left after installing the fan and activating the remote. Now I will need him to come back for the wall mount switch. Not a big deal, just wish it was all in one package. Ended up not needing the extra pole - that would only be needed for high ceilings, which I don't have. Live and learn! Still super happy with the fan.

We purchased the fan because we thought MinkaAire was one of the premium fan companies. We were very disappointed to find out the fan HUMS loudly at all speeds.

Quality + looks
We had been looking for a fan for quite some time and were rather underwhelmed at the big box store offerings. The Minka Aire Bolo fan offered pretty much everything we were looking for (size, remote, color, finish, quality) in one neat package. The fan looks very nice (installed in our bedroom) and looks like it cost more than it did. Packaging was very secure and instructions were complete for the most part. While it would be nice to have had a flush mount option, we went with the shorter pole which gave us room for installation. The motor housing is HUGE (far bigger than we anticipated) but that's not a deal breaker since we had a hard time finding a fan that had everything we want. The fan ran balanced right out of the box and runs very smoothly. We would definitely buy another Minka Aire product.

This fan looks even better than expected(oil rubbed bronze). It is a medium brown which is exactly what I wanted. The lighting is perfect for a bedroom. The remote is easy to use and the fan is extremely quiet while generating a lot of air flow. This is my 3rd MinkaAire ceiling fan and each one has been great. The quality is very obvious when compared to fans available through lowes, home depot, etc. You will be thrilled you spent a little more money for such quality and design.

The design of the Bolo ceiling fan was a pleasant suprise. The fan's design is more appealling in person than displayed on-line. The fan is an excellent value. The only improvement I would make is with the wall control. You cannot change the speed of the fan unless you use the remote (the fan does not have speed control on the actual device), but you can only use the remote control to control the fan.

I knew what type of fan I wanted. Went to the big box stores and could not find what I liked. Went to a small local lighting/fan store. He carried the brand but without the remote. He would order it for me allow 3-4 weeks. I googled the brand Lighting Direct came up. I found the fan with the remote ordered and it arrived 4 days later. My husband and a friend installed. Just what we wanted.
