I bought a Craftmade ceiling fan at a lighting store, total cost $179. Had to buy the fan, blades, and light kit separately. I wanted a totally white fan to blend in with the ceiling; I just opened the box and the fan motor piece is brass. I thought that the metal pieces that hold the blades was brass and the rest was white. I saw a Hunter fan at Home Depot that is $99 and includes the blades and the light kit. I like the light on it better, although it only has 2 bulbs in it. The Craftmade fan can take 3 bulbs. The Hunter fan is completely white, which is what I wanted. I don't really like ceiling fans to begin with so I wanted it to basically blend in with the ceiling. Sort of being functional without being obvious. I guess I can live with the brass if its a much better fan. I'd rather have a better fan if its worth the money. But I like the Hunter fan from Home Depot better. Should I return the Craftmade fan? They both have limited lifetime warranties on the motors. Its also important to me that the fan be quiet. Thank you!

Hunter is a good name. I would get the fan you want.

I'd stay away from Craftmade. We recently had five fans installed in our new home, they all hummed excessively. The builder tried swapping fans with no improvement.

Replaced them with Hunter fans and no more hum.
