Looking at Home Depot's website - What separates a $50 ceiling fan from $100 ceiling fan from a $200 ceiling fan?
Is there a 'standard' size or is it totally dependent on room?
Is there anything else I should be looking for, or is it just a matter of finding one that wife likes the looks of?

Cheaper fans tend to be noisier. YOu really do not want a fan with any noise at all. It will get on your nerves in a very short while. They also will not last nearly as long. There are fewer windings in the motor and the bearings are much less substantial. The blades will be plastic in the cheap fans and wood in the better ones.
Size depends upon the room and whether you are just stirring the air or really trying to create a breeze.
Check for how it will be suspended from your ceiling. Some require quite a bit of work in the attic to support them. Also how is it wired. Ours is controlled from a wall switch making it very convenient to us. Some use only the pull chains. Some have a remote. Do you want a bult in light fixture?I don't always talk to UVa Grads but when I do I always order the Large Fries.

In the Southern hemisphere, ceiling fans actually remain stationary while your house rotates in the opposite direction. I learned this in college.
