I received everything timely and in good condition as promised. Paperwork was immediate and proper. Salesman recommendations were appropiate for what was needed to operate efficiently.

I really like this fan's shape, but had to get used to the three blades instead of the four blade one it replaced. Also, because the blades taper from large to small, it tends to look smaller in diameter than it really is.
By:CK1 , Architect (Grand Rapids, MI)
The look is very modern and fresh-which is hard to do with a,"fan."
I am very pleased with the quality, and I highly recommend this product.
By:Kathy R. , Homeowner (Tulsa, Oklahoma,USA)
The price was competitive. The style is awesome, and performance is the best one yet. I have purchase 2 others from Modern Fan and they are all great, but I love this one!
By:Donna M. , Designer (Denver CO)
Easy to install.
Very modern with the three blade, and extremely quite. We and could not have had a better experience with YLighting!

I am very happy with the Velo ceiling fan. I find most ceiling fans to be really ugly, so this one was a very pleasant surprise. It looks really nice and functions beautifully. The white finish looks very high-quality. The controls are easy to use.
By:Alisa J. , Homeowner
Really like the operation and look, bought two of 'em.
By:CS (Brooklyn, NY)
I ordered the Velo for my teenage son's room and he is thrilled with the modern high-tech look as well as the quiet and efficient air flow. The electrician said it was the easiest fan installation he's done in his 10 years of installing fans. I got both the wall control and the remote and would definitely recommend getting both for a bedroom. I then ordered a second Velo for my home office and it also was an easy installation and worked perfectly right out of the box. The fan is silent on "low" and "medium". There is a mild whirring sound on "high", but not enough to be bothersome. I doubt I'll use "high" anyway since "medium" creates a very comfortable air flow. I found Ylighting easy to deal with and would use them again.

I have two Velo fans in my solar/green building condo. Very good at night to cool the interior so I use less AC. They are beautiful, minimalist, very efficient and quiet. I recommend the longer stem (special order) for enhanced air movement. Very pleased.
By:PLM Architecture , Architect (Prospect, CO)
Extremely happy with this fan. It may only have 3 blades but in moves a tremendous amount of air and is very quiet. We purchased the halogen light option which thanks to the dimmer function covers the entire spectrum from floodlit down to mood lighting.
By:Ian , Homeowner (Southern CA)
Design, selection of materials and craftsmanship are just remarkable. Special attention to detail makes my Velo Ceiling Fan a great addition to my kitchen underlying its character and modern style.
The fan is very quiet and well balanced, exactly what I was looking for.
By:Greg K. , Homeowner (State College, PA)
Very nice fan. The design is reminiscent of an aircraft propeller. I particularly like the fact that it has only three blades. This gives a cool, aerial look, much more inspiring than the clunky traditional ceiling fan. The low and medium settings are quiet and the contoured blades move a lot of air. No use for the high setting which moves too much air and is noisy.
By:pargnt , Homeowner (Las Vegas, NV)
Well worth the price!
By:OAXA , Designer (Pasadena CA)
Very happy with this Velo fan. Aside from its sleek, modern design, it works very well in circulating the air in our spacious loft. It's ultra quiet as well in low, medium and high speeds. Thanks Ylighting!
By:Rod A. , Homeowner (Jersey City, NJ)
While not yet installed, we are anticipating this beautiful, modern design, being integrated into our Maui home.
By:Les W. (Maui)
Fantastic product. As always MF provides. Well made fan, great balance. I would like to see more electrical specs for integration into home mechanical.
By:John W. , Designer (Roanoke, VA)
Had fan for about 3 months in bedroom, and very pleased. My bedroom is furnished pretty modernly, but with lots of wood, and the stainless finish compliments it nicely. Above even the design is the unit's features--I'm using it as the room's primary light source, and it's fairly warm while still being able to be powerful if needed. The remote option is also fantastic.
By:Lane S. , Homeowner (Yardley, PA)
My fan is excellent-only sorry due to backorders it took a while to receive.
Y lighting was very good in following up.
By:Happy Customer , Homeowner (NYC)
Bought two and one had a metal-to-metal squeak in it and was impossible to balance. The other is perfect. Modern Fan agreed to send another and take the one with the problem. Great service!!
By:Rob F. , Homeowner (Olympia, Wa)
Modern, industrial, sleek, architectural, minimal and quiet are just a few adjectives that come to mind when I think of the Velo Cieling Fan, which I've had for a month now. It hangs directly above my bed and even on high, only the sounds of the blades slicing through the air can be heard - the motor is nearly noiseless.
And if that isn't enough, YLighting sold this for less than Design Within Ripoff.
By:dwb , Homeowner (Hollywood, CA)
We are just delighted with the fan.
Besides looking very modern, sleek and super cool . . . . its the greatest fan I ever had; we installed it in my study and its great. It does its job perfectly, giving cool nice air . Its very quiet in the slow speed, a bit noise when its full range . . . . . but besides that I would recommend this fan for any modern home.
We are planning to buy a second Velo Fan next month for our master bedroom.

By:Gary F. , Designer
This fan is definitely worth the price. While admittedly more expensive than your run-of-the-mill ceiling fan, it is worth it! The look is sleek and modern, but better yet, it performs magically. It is very, very quiet and even more efficient. My only recommendation is to get the 24-inch downrod if your ceiling is high enough. This will help the fan move even more air. It is currently 80 degrees inside my apartment, but feels like it is 72 with the fan above me!
By:Ignacio , Homeowner (Washington DC)
It is what we were looking for, something modern that goes with our style. very quite and effecient
By:Shamima H. , Homeowner (Laguna Hills, CA USA)
My Velo arrived with wireless remote and no light kit (as ordered). Our electrician installed the fan on a barrel ceiling and got it up and running without a problem. I opted to control the fan both with the wireless remote and fan speed module (Lutron HomeWorks), fortunately we pre-wired 3 wires in order to support this mode, otherwise only one control method would have been possible.
It's been installed about a week and we find ourselves turning on the fan as the house stays warm through the afternoon. The only "gotcha" is the silver color is more reflective (glossy) than I would have liked, a matte option for the blades would be good.
By:Jonathan H. , Homeowner (Palo Alto, CA)
By:Rachael B. , Homeowner (North Carlina)
Fabulous fan. I bought the fan because it was close to the ceiling. I'm really happy with how the fan looks in the space and how well it moves the air.
By:Rachael B. , Homeowner (Durham, NC USA)
I love this fan. Have been looking at it for several years. Just bought a house that is ski lodge/rustic/70s style with high beamed ceiling in great room looking out at mountains - this fan absolutely gives a cool modern twist to the room. Additionally, it provides great air flow. The house does not have a/c (you allegedly don't need it in the mountains lol but hot is hot.....). So, I bought two of them for each end of the room and they more than compensates for the lack of a/c. Highly recommend the fan!
By:Jack S. , Homeowner (Green Mountain Falls, CO)
Slick design, silent and forceful.
By:Toots , Homeowner (Monroe, NJ)
This I am glad I ordered. It gives off good bit of air flow. Easy on the eye. Well made as well. Good value for the. Obey
By:Leslie S. , Homeowner (Greenville sc USA)
I was very pleased with the service from Ylighting and the quickness that we received our product. The Velo fans we purchased were exactly what were needed for this project. The customer was very pleased with the end product.
By:Lori P. , Designer (Marietta Oh)
I'm very pleased with the product. It's made of high-quality materials, and it was easy to assemble. Assuming this fan is representative of its overall product line, I'll look for fans made by this manufacturer before considering others.
Your website provided helpful detail and was easy to navigate. Importantly, the fan was delivered to me on schedule.
By:Robert M. , Homeowner (Atlanta, GA, USA)
The Velo Ceiling Fan doesn't just have a great contempory aesthetic, but is a really well manufactured fan. At first I thought that the blades were small, but the fan moves a lot of air and it is very quiet. Great Ceiling Fan!
By:David S. , Architect (Carmel, IN, USA)
I purchased the fan and remote for an outdoor patio location. The fan is beautiful and I can't wait to install it. YLighting's prices are great and the shipping is prompt. I am very pleased with my purchase.
By:Dawn (Austin, TX)
we installed this fan in my husband's editing room. it is really good at circulating the air but even better it's super quiet!
By:L.C. , Homeowner (studio city, ca)
By:Luis S. , Homeowner (Piedmont, CA)
this fan obviated the need for an airconditioner in my bedroom. It is beautiful and runs very quietly. I purchased both the remote and wall switch, but probably didn't need the wall switch. I had previously purchased the same fan, but with the lighting unit. That fan works wonderfully as well, but the lighting fixture is useless. It provides a very dim light, almost like a night light. I removed the lighting portion very after purchase.
By:Annie C. , Homeowner (new york, new york)
Wonderful customer service woman at YLighting advised and prevented me from ordering two fans that won't work with only one switch. Got this great mod fan, two, and they will work with one switch for both.
By:Koala , Homeowner (NY)
Product shipment, apperance, function and design are all just as expected. Very happy with the service and will be using YLighting for many projects in the future.
By:Ivan S , Designer (St. Paul, MN)
Very satisfied with shipment, function and design of the product. We will be using YLighting for many projects in the future.
By:Ivan S , Designer (St. Paul, MN)
I had the BEST experience, not once, but twice with YLighting.
I am a custom builder and buy from many sources and have to say that the service that I recieved from YlIGHTING in my puechasing several fans was outstanding.
By:William H. , Designer (Alexandria Va.)
I have now purchased 7 VELO fans..outstanding company to work with.
By:William H. , Designer (Alexandria Va)
This model was perfect because one can use one wall switch to control two fans. Some models you can not. Looks great.
By:Landlad , Homeowner (Millwood)
I was first interested in the Velo fan becuase of the sleek design. Then I got excited when the price was about half of what I thought it would be. Now that it is install it runs quitely and produces a nice flow of air.
By:David S. , Homeowner (Washington DC)
Overall a very good experience. Packaging was first class, installation was easy fan noise very quiet and efficient
By:Hans U. , Homeowner (Ann Arbor, MI48103)
This is the third home we have installed Modern Fans in. The Velo looks great and works as well as it looks. I highly recommend.
By:J.P. , Homeowner (Austin, Tx)
The Velo Ceiling Fan is just the best ceiling fan that money can buy! This fan fits perfect into Modern and Contemporary Design. It has quiet operation and moves a extreme amount of air for its compact design.
By:David , Designer (Indianapolis)
I searched for a ceiling fan that wouldn't be distracting in a modern space. This fit the bill!
By:NJZS , Architect (San Francisco)
Very happy to have found this company and model. it looks great in the space!
By:NJZS , Architect (San Francisco)
Replaced rusted white fan. Instakk was not too difficult. Runs smooth and looks great.
By:D.W. , Homeowner (Jupiter, FL)
Bought this fan in the all metal finish for a modern exercise room. Looks crisp, clean, non-obtrusive and works beautifully. Does everything a ceiling fan should without being ugly, as most others are. Great Product!
By:Allison , Designer (Boston)
The beauty of the fan is only surpassed by its quiet operation and easy controls. The wall switch offers a full range of options -- not just off and on -- just like the remote. I definitely recommend this fan!
By:Linda S. , Homeowner (New Orleans)
Fan is better than expected ! Some wrong parts sent though:(
By:Ken L. , Homeowner (Wellington, fla)
This is the perfect fan. Not only looks great but is quiet with a strong motor. Highly recommend.
By:Brenda , Homeowner (Durham, North Carolina)
This fan has clean lines and moves lots of air quietly.
By:Bill , Architect (Ohio)
We were looking for a modern fan that wouldn't call a lot of attention to itself, and this one was perfect. Nice and simple, looks sharp, no frills. Works great, super quiet, more than enough airflow for our needs. The only part that was slightly goofy was the top housing didn't fit snug against the ceiling. (Had it installed on a 15' ceiling by a professional, so didn't get a good look myself, but something about the position of the screws.) But pretty minor, and probably something specific to the box it was installed on. Very happy, would buy again.
By:Jack , Homeowner (Boston, MA)
Great minimal look. Doesn't draw attention to itself, silent, perfect airflow for our needs. Very happy.
By:John , Homeowner (Boston, MA)
The shipment arrived early , laura and i got started installing.
the instructions are brief , simple and easy to follow .
the installation was easy .
the fan turns smoothly and silently delivering lots of air.
the handheld remote worked right away without adjustment.

we are glad that we bought velo and we are glad we bought at YLighting.
By:Anthony G. , Homeowner (waxhaw North Carolina)

By:Anthony G. , Homeowner (waxhaw NC)
Thrilled with the purchase. Couldn't be happier!
By:Vera G. , Designer (Naples, Florida )
Looks really good on my ceiling. Installed fairly easily, although one of the screws from the blade shredded the threading. So one blad has only 2 of 3 screws. Hope it holds up ok. Other than that, I'm very pleased.
By:Paul F. , Homeowner (New Haven, CT)
more beautiful than pictures. very quiet and efficient, would recomend to anyone. a bit expensice but worth the money
By:Greg L. (south florida)
This fan is truly fabulous -- it looks great, it works wonderfully, and everyone comments on it.
By:David G. , Homeowner (Washington, DC)
This fan looks sleek and you can really feel the affects of the various speeds of the fan. We purchased it with the light attachment and it really provides a nice lighting alternative in our bedroom.
By:B.H. , Homeowner (Brooklyn)
This fan looks great.
This fan works great.
There are no embellishments on this fan to try and capture the sensibilities of some motif from another time. It is simply a great, quiet, and well balanced fan that has its shape defined by its function. It doesn't compete for attention in the room with other furnishings. It just does its job - very well. This purchase is a repeat for me.
The fan arrived promptly and well packed. Installation is a 2 on the "easy meter".
YLightings' service and clear well laid out website made the decision to purchase here easy. Best price too!
By:Scot N. , Designer (San Jose)
We were trying to build a more modern contemporary styled home. This fan really gave the room a contemporary statement. We have 10' ceilings and this fan really looks great. We also enjoy how quiet the fan is. We have put the Velo in both bedrooms and the Gusto in the living room. Love the look!!
By:Peter P. , Homeowner (columbia mo)
There are many wonderful fans out today as the state of fan design has greatly evolved during the last decade but the Velo Ceiling Fan stands out for price and looks. We are very happy with how it functions and the ease of installation.
By:InHousemark , Designer (San Francisco, CA, USA)
We bought 3 fans and after we were able to figure out how to control each one independently, they have been just what we needed.
By:Susan O. , Homeowner (NYC)
Had to switch the control as three fans are all within distance of being controlled by one remote - once that was done they have been just great
By:Susan O. (NYC)
The fan arrived quickly with the additional down rod included in the package. Incredibly easy to install (heavy!), and works like a dream. The air movement on high is incredible and it is all but soundless. Great fan, highly recommended.
By:Kyle G , Homeowner (Minneapolis, MN)
Beautiful fan. Great retro looks. Compliments the ceilings well.
By:william k. , Designer (San Antonio Texas)
Nice modern look, quiet performance. Will recommend to all my friends.
By:Igor Z. , Homeowner (Palisades Park, NJ)
This fan is sleeker than most and looks well in a modern decor.
By:Michael Z. , Homeowner (Muttontown, NY)
We are very happy with the look and function of this fan. This is our second one and although the new one is not hung yet I am sure it will work just as well as the old one.
By:Joe F. (Jupiter, FL)
Love the fan. It has a contemporary look I was looking for. It runs very smooth, quiet and we need to keep it on the lowest setting. Very powerful and it gives great breeze, which we need in steamy Florida.
By:Sonja C. , Homeowner (Florida)
After shopping extensively for three contemporary ceilings fan for our new great room, the white Velo caught my eye. This product fit the bill in that I needed some of the fans to hang at different lengths and the idea of purchasing the available extension rods allowed me capability to do so. The staff at Y Lighting, including Laura and April were very helpful in addressing any concerns I had in regard to the purchase. The fans arrived promptly and my husband commented afterward how easy the installation was. I love both the look and quality of the fan. My only regret is wishing I had found them sooner. I love the modern style of YLighting products and plan on buying more items from them in the future.
By:Tricia L. , Homeowner (Shakopee, MN)
I debated as to whether or not to put a ceiling fan in the main room of the house. I have huge windows that frame a spectacular view of the mountains and didn't want a big awkward looking object interrupting the view line. The velo ceiling fan fits perfectly with the room and provides a cool quiet stream
of air. I highly recommend it.
By:rick , Designer (palm springs, ca usa)
The Modern Fan Company has greatly exceeded my expectations with their product. When shopping for ceiling fans to install in my personal residence, they struck me with their unique design and product construction. I ended up buying two of their fans as 'testers- The Ball and Velo fans. After receiving the fans, I quickly realized the quality of product this company manufactures, especially from the Velo fan. I plan on buying two more Velo fans for my other bedrooms while The Ball remains in my living room.
