The Hunter 51044 ceiling fan is an excellent buy. It was fairly easy to install and its ceiling housing had more than enough room to accommodate the remote control module, although twist ties and electrical tape had to be used to properly secure it. The instructions were fairly straighforward but the illustrations could be improved. The fan is very quiet and operates smoothly without any of the usual motor whine when it accelerates the blade rotation. The only drawback is that, like most fans of this type, it will have a wobble, especially on its fastest setting. Realizing this, Hunter has included a fan balancing kit and instructions. Unfortunately, balancing a fan is a time consuming process and doesn't completely eliminate wobble even when done correctly. The fan, when completely assembled, is heavy so it should be installed to a very secure fixture and has to assembled in steps according to the instructions. It's a great fan for the price and has a great look.
I really like the fan and it works great, but...the color is more of an off-white than true white so if you have true white ceilings like we do then it stands out as being different. I'm actually thinking of pulling it down and painting it a true white. Also, it doesn't work with dimmer switches so make sure you're aware of that. And the biggest complaint, not that it's a huge deal, but it doesn't sit flush to the ceiling. There is about a 1/8" gap all around between the base and the ceiling because the holes that connect the white outter base to the inner base/mount are not positioned correctly.
The fan was easy to install, and works perfectly with the Lutron wall switch I purchased. It has a space at the top to hold a receiver for a wall switch or remote, and the Lutron's receiver fit it like a glove. The fan is quiet, and the lights provide adequate illumination for our 12 by 12 dining room. By the way, the Lutron model I bought is the Maestro Duo. It has 7 fan speeds, and dims the lamps in the usual way. It too was easy to install, both in the fan, and at the wall--it installs exactly like a simple light switch. My only criticism of this fan is the size of the canopy. It's a bit big, making he fan more "visible" than I'd like. On the other hand, it makes installation very, very forgiving.
