    FANtastic! I bought 4 of these in black to replace the older ceiling fans I had. The Trinity DC fans are well built, clean and cool in their design, quiet and smooth in their aciton. They simply work well! The electrician who installed them commented on how well engineered they are. The remote is really cool, and the sea breeze mode is funky. Great product at a great price. Thanks

    56" Trinity DC ceiling fan in Black. We got this fan for a new office upstairs in our house, the room faces west and gets a bit warm in the afternoon. The 56" Trinity fan cools the area off beautifully with it's 8 settings, timer function and a sea breeze setting to add to an already great fan. Thoroughly recommended and the service is great to boot.

    Excellent fan, big air mover. Bought three of these fans in DC version from our local lighting store in Murwillumbah. These fans are quiet and provide big airflow . The remote is cool with 8 speeds,( we only ever use low speed or maybe medium) forwards and reverse and also has a couple of timer settings. DC means cheap to run. Bit disappointed with being able to see the blade screws from below , the cover should be bigger, but this is not a big issue. Aaron and Daniella recommended the fan, so if it is good enough for them it is good enough for me.

    Pretty amazing. The only small issue we had was that the ceiling cap does not seem to be quite large enough to house all the circuitry, so the electrician could not get them all flush right up against the ceiling. He actually had to extend some wires to get them as close as he did, but it has still left us with a gap between the ceiling and where the cap begins. Aside from that, the performance of these is amazing. Never would have believed that completely silent fans existed until i heard these. Also, the amount of air they push is beyond belief. We've never needed to go past 1. The timer function is also extremely useful.

    Trinity fan with light. We bought the 56” trinity fan with light for our bedroom. Our bedroom has a westerly facing window and so the room is hot. After installing the fan it’s made a huge difference. The fan actually feels like an air conditioner is on. The fan is so quiet and has 8 speeds. It’s fantastic and we highly recommend it. We are actually buying the fan now for other areas of the house.
