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.

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:

      I needed to replace two old outdated, noisy and broken ceiling fans in my home office studio. Found this one on sale at Del Mar and bought two. They were relatively easy to install, and I was done with both in a few hours.

      The best thing I like about these is that they are quiet! I work at a home studio doing graphic design and music recording. Previously I would sweat it out rather than turn on the old noisy fans I was replacing. These new ones barely make any sound at all at low and medium speed. I also love the clean look, as there are no pull chains or switches visible—everything works by remote control. I couldn't be happier with these fans.

      Comments about Minka-Aire F518-WH, Concept II White Flush Mount 44" Ceiling Fan with Light & Remote Control:

      Cool looking fan with it's 3 blades and wide body. We have a small room with low ceilings and needed a flush mount style. This one looks great. No wobbling either.

      The only negative is the high setting. Because of the 3 blades , it sounds like helicopter blades buffeting the air.
      Not loud, But noticeable.

      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.

      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.

        Comments about Minka-Aire F518-BN, Concept II Brushed Nickel Flush Mount 44" Ceiling Fan with Light & Remote:

        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.
