Everything about these fans is great, but have a good electrician install them. There was no problem at all with the remote controlled fan in the kitchen. BUT in the living room, I had two fans in the ceiling around 20 feet apart. There was a problem because each fan could not be set on its own frequency and handled separately. So my electrician called the company and they figured something out, but they both go on and off at the same time, same for the lights. It is not a problem for me at all, but he said usually each fan lets you simply set its own remote setting or something. Otherwise, I absolutely love my beautiful new fans, they are perfect.

Had to send back
We ended up sending this fan back due to the blades looking so cheap. We were sad because the design and fan base was exactly what we were looking for.

Comments about Minka-Aire F518-WH, Concept II White Flush Mount 44" Ceiling Fan with Light & Remote Control:
This is my second Minka Aire fan. The first one I purchased last year for my bedroom. It circulates the air well, Its quiet and does everything I wanted it to do. I purchase the exact same fan for my living room and I've noticed when I have it on high, there is a humming sound that I didn't get from my first fan. If I put the speed on medium, it stops, but I want to be able to put it on high & have it still be silent. I've also had a problem with the remote controlling both fans when I don't want it to. The bedroom is right next to the living room, and when I use it in either room, it turns both fans on. They are both being controlled with the same remote when I don't want them to. the humming noise is not loud, but I would prefer it to not be there at all. I would also like to control the fans separately with each remote. These are the reasons I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5. It's still a good fan.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

High quality built fan.

Don't fool with electric installations, expecially in the attic area. Had our trustworthy, longtime, electrician do the install. It took him no time at all. Everything worked perfect.
quiet and beautiful

About Me Casual Do-It-Yourselfer
This fan was installed by the contractor doing our kitchen remodel so I can't speak to how easy or difficult install was. It fits nicely into a small space and is moving the air really well. It does not wobble at all and is super quiet. We are very happy with it.My only negative comment is that the base is substantial, so if you're used to the look of Hunter or other classic fans, this feels "heavier" in the room.We wanted a wall control and no pull chains because the ceiling is only 8'. Happy with our choice so far.
Second Purchase , Very Happy

Comments about Minka-Aire F518-ORB, Concept II Oil-Rubbed Bronze Flush Mount 44:
Would have gave it a five star, except for the blade color not matching the fan unit. I took Care of this by spraying the blades with Rust-oleum Dark Bronze it matches great. The other quirk is that there is a gap between ceiling and fan, it's not flush. I solved this by taking a 1/4" piece of plexiglass and cutting it 1/8" bigger around then the base(made a donut)and sprayed it with the Rust-oleum Dark Bronze. It looks like it came that way. This is my second unit and I will be purchasing a third. Works great is very Quiet and the remote is very handy (with NO problems setting remote.).Also like to mention that I find the light (100 Watt) fine, in fact I keep it on its lowest setting for getting ready for bed, rarely turn it up. This does make me think of one other complaint: The remote has a double button for adjusting light up and down But only adjusts (cycles) in one direction. Would be nice if they made it so pressing top half of button made light go up, and then pressing bottom button made light go down. The way it's made now they only need a Single button because pushing either button just makes light cycle through brite to dim. So you must guess when you have hit the brightest or dimmest point or you jump back to beginning of cycle.

I would buy this product, but....
By Kris the homeowner

I ordered three fans and one of the fans wouldn't work because the remote transmitter was faulty. The electrician who installed the fans had a remote mechanism in his truck and was able replace the faulty mechanism, but at a cost, of course. Now that they are installed, the fans work well and quietly.
Small, sleek and flush to the ceiling

I bought two of these fans for our kitchen/breakfast nook. I wish that the lights were a bit brighter, but otherwise they are great. The remote works perfectly and can control both fans (though this can be changed in the settings if you want them separately controlled). They are very close to the ceiling (great for tall people!). Really made the room feel more open when replacing classic 1980s kitchen ceiling fans with big globe lights.

As the name implies - a taste of things to come. Simple in style yet ingenious by design. The Concept requires 75% less time and labor to assemble than conventional ceiling fans. Installing a Minka Aire Concept is made easy with our installation video and article.
