The fan is beautiful. Very quiet operation and moves a lot of air. Installation was easy. I have the light kit with the CFL light. It provides good, soft ambient lighting. The remote is a must. I absolutely love it. Also, the light dome cracked when I was installing it. I called YLighting and they had a replacement shipped out immediately. I couldn't have been happier with the customer service. All in all, I am extremely pleased with the Gusto Fan and YLighting.

A well crafted, great looking fan.

This is a great fan, clean and modern but also looks really cool. I ordered this fan one morning and it arrived 2 days later, it was that quick.
Y Lighting have once again met all my expectations.

The sleek design, quiet and smoothly running fan adds a lot to our environment.
We are happy to have chosen this unit, it suits our needs and taste very well. The price also was very much in line with others we considered.

This is our second product from the fan company. Both of them are classic designs and very well constructed.
Our house is 70 years old and only one wire (hot) comes to the switch) so we installed the fan with the remote. It works great. The remote remembers the last setting (Light or fan and speed). So we can still use the wall switch. The remote sensor is pretty big and the pictures are not very clear how it is supposed to fit during installation.

There isn't much more to say except that the fan is beautiful. It is the winter so I have only run it a few times to test it out, but it operates at a fairly low sound level with no shaking and moves a lot of air.
My one gripe: the fan speed control starts with the fastest speed on the bottom and the slowest on the top. This is backwards to me! It really isn't a big deal, just a minor gripe.

We bought these ceiling fans for a change to a more contermporary look in a 40 year old home. We bought 4 Gusto's for the house and they all look and installed beautifully. I would definitely get more fans like this in the future.

Purchased this fan along with remote control and no lighting. The remote control is great since I can operate my other fan with it. However, you do need to order another receiver. This fan is great for a bigger room with high ceilings. It really cools things down fast in the desert!

This fan looks lovely and performs very well. Placed in a modern bedroom, it is exactly what we were looking for.

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 Gusto in the living room and the Velo in both bedrooms. Very sharp looking!!

Just beautiful! Excellent product all around. Lovely to look at, completely quiet in operation, absolutely great paint... in color, application and finish. Could not be happier with them. And Y- Lighting has stellar customer service. Very pleasant purchase all around. Thank you so much!

This is the perfect fan for us. Sleek and follows the clean lines of our new, modern home. You will love it!

Just what I wanted. One of the few fans that you might think doesn't have a light when the light is turned off, which I think really improves a space. Love the wall controls.

Clean, simple design works well in our older house. Fan is powerful yet quiet. I'm disappointed with how dim the light it- with the cover off, it's a very bright halogen bulb, but the design of the bulb cover blocks most of the lamp's output. Really disappointed in this aspect as we were counting on this to be a whole-room light.

Great looking fan! Easy to install! Quiet operation! Exactly met expectations.
By:Keith M. , Homeowner (Charlotte, NC)
Love this fan. Looks like a million bucks and works well. Not easy to get that combo. Very quiet and blades are long an push a lot of air. A bit pricey but if you want a certain look your going to have to pay for it (at least that's what I've realized). Thinking of getting a second for the bedroom.
By:Brenda , Homeowner (Austin, Tx)
Fantastic fan! Pushing a lot of air is quiet as a whisper. Looks amazing in our modern living space. Will definitely be getting a second for the bedroom.

We bought this fan for our family room and we liked it so well we decided to buy one for our bedroom. Quiet and modern, it's a perfect fit.

So then....18 foot cathedral ceiling and a dead fan. Somehow I ended up at YLighting pages and Gusto fan was decided upon after much deliberation. Airflow at 6340 CFM sure did help my settling on it. Fan comes tightly packed and protected every each way from Sunday. Installation is a breeze as manual is quite detailed and wires are clearly labeled. I opted for remote control option. Two things to mention; Remote transceiver installation instructions could be better, particularly in how to position it at the ceiling and switching operation of the fan to Reverse cannot be done from the remote control, but by manually flipping a tab at the top of the motor. Neither are show stoppers. Once installed, one thing becomes immediately apparent - this thing is whisper quiet!!! It just spins. And moves a ton of air. The fan which Gusto replaced sounded like a landing Huey chopper.
I called YLighting customer support 3 times - twice at the point of pre-sale and once post-sale. CS reps are totally awesome. Patient, deliberate, understanding and extremely knowledgeable. Let's face it - unless you are in the trades, it's not like you install ceiling fans for living. YLighting folks understand that and have your back, regardless of how silly your question may appear to you.
That said, 5 stars all around. For the fan which runs as quiet as they come, moves a ton of air, no wobble at the end of 24" downrod ( that was my post-sale call - how to balance the fan correctly ) and outstanding look of it on my ceiling. 5 stars for YLigthing's customer support, carrying and free shipping.
