I searched for and read many reviews on fans and chose this fan for several reasons. We were not disappointed when we saw them (we purchased two.) They are far more substantial and elegant than pictured. The main selling points of being well balanced out of the box held true and the installation was straight forward and easy as we were replacing 2 old and cheaper models.
These fans are really an investment aside from the look of them. The Eco motor is silent and a fraction of the cost of most fans. The selling point for me was the halogen light since the other Emerson eco motor fans had non standard lights requiring modification if you wanted standardization, etc. This model eliminated that issue. It also has a built in receiver so if you wanted to purchase a separate remote (Emerson SR60) you would not even have to install the wall switch. We did both - wall and purchased remote.
That combined with the 20% discount offered by DecorPrice.com with free shipping was a great deal and the best deal anywhere. They arrived quickly however I did have to inquire on their shipping status because I did not receive an email to track the shipment. However, Decor responded quickly to my email providing the shipping information.
We have 2 additional fans that will be replaced next year and will definitely look at Emerson and DecorPrice.com.
