Functions well, looks great, love the different light options

published

Delivery was fast, got it installed last week and use it most nights for lowly dimmed light and winter fan setting. It is very quiet and so convenient.

No problem with these fans

I have bought 4 of these fans in the past for bedrooms and living areas. I find they are quiet and effective. The portable control is easy to use. I would recommend these fans to my friends

I have three of these and am very happy

published

One fan needed a slight adjustment (small weight) on one of the blades to keep it quiet (stop from clicking) otherwise I am very happy with these fans. Mine all have the light as I replaced the ceiling lights with the fans and one is dimmable. I should have bought another for my own bedroom (put in air con so thought I wouldn't need the fan - with hindsight I should have put in a fan as well).

Makes a clicking sound

published

Makes a clicking sound as it rotates which is annoying in the bedroom. The fan is good but if you are buying for the "silent" aspect I would not recommend.

Purchased for $300.

Awful awful awful

published

Looks nice otherwise disgusting quality! The ball does not sit level in the canopy causing them to rub on each other with a grating sound and scratching the paint off the ball. The canopy is obviously too small and you can hear the vibrations on the metal. Don't buy unless you enjoy hearing loud clicks, grating and a faint high pitched nails on a chalk board sound. The issues are with 2 52 inch fans. The 48 inch one does not make the grating and clicking but still makes a high pitched rubbing on metal noise from the canopy. They have been unusable from the first time they were turned on and no where near fit for purpose

Smart Home app useless

published

We bought the smart fan for a reason.
We have wasted half a day on attempting to connect.
Help desk sends me screen shots of a different version of the app which is useless.
Do not buy this fan.

Disappointed

published

I purchased my Franco Eco Silent DC fan on 1 April through Fans Online (who are fantastic) and had it installed on 1 April. There was a grating noise, especially on the lower speeds. The electrician advised me that the fan unit is grating on the bracket and there was nothing he could do about it. I have reported this to Franco and have received 5 emails from Franco Sales and Brilliant Support who service these fans letting me know they are attending to my complaint. Even Fans Online have contacted them but so far - now 25 April - nothing has happened. How long does it take to have this rectified? After sales service is important to future customers and I would advise them to look elsewhere.

General function is fine but it's not as quiet as advertised

published

This is the 2nd of these fans we've had and after 6 months had it replaced due to clicking and clunky motor noise in the low speed setting..it's not super loud but it's annoying in middle of night. The LED light is a stark daylight feel so not really relaxing for bedroom use. It would be fine for living rooms or larger family rooms. The customer support from Fans Online is good though so no issues there.

Fantastic Fans

published

I bought these fans from Fansonline. A 48" with light for a second bedroom and a 52" without light for the master bedroom. They really are very quiet and move a substantial amount of air even on low setting. The equivalent fans were about $70 more in a retail store and delivery was free from Fansonline by courier; they arrived in about 2 business days. All up I'm extremely happy with these fans.

Excellent fan

published

Fan was easy for electrician to install and is almost completely silent. Also the RF remote works with my Broadlink RM4 remote emulator with Alexa - set-up only took me 5 mins. Could not be happier.

Noisy fan

published

I've had the fan replaced under warranty due to a ticking and grinding noise that was occuring. After the replacement it did seem to go but after a few weeks of use the noise has come back (not as bad though). I wouldn't recommend this fan for a bedroom as the noises are quiet annoying and require you to adjust the angle of the fan to get it to stop.
The reverse function of the fan is great, a huge improvement to AC fans.
I do find the lowest speed isn't low enough for the bedroom with a 2.4m high ceiling

The Eco Silent deluxe is great. Great choice of light colours and brightness and fan speeds, and quiet. We do have a small problem - turning on the light switch or remote the next day does not always activate and then we fiddle with the remote and five minutes later it works. I cannot find any information on the site about how to get it right.
