This is a review of the Hunter Echo Bluff 42 inch ceiling fan. The fan had a well-designed box and was in excellent condition. It has a low-profile housing that fits flush to the ceiling. This fan has pull cords for the lights and for the fan speed. I installed it myself, and my overall comment is that it is easier to install than the average fan. My house is wired with 2 wall switches controlling 2 hot wires to the fan (one for the lights and one for the fan motor). I followed the instructions for wiring 2 hot wires, and it works well. We leave the pull chain for the lights in the on position, and turn the lights on and off from the wall switch. The 9 watt LED bulbs are quite bright, so if you use it in a bedroom you may wish to change to smaller wattage LED bulbs. The wide ceiling bracket and motor housing (about 9 inches in diameter at the ceiling) covers up any cosmetic problems around the opening in the ceiling, and gives more room for the wiring, so you don't have to stuff the wires back up into the ceiling. The mount for the fan motor is different from the typical Hunter "ball and socket" mount. It is a square mount which is easier to work with. I did learn one thing about putting the motor housing on to the ceiling bracket. Don't try to push it on the bracket with the screw holes in alignment, the dimples in the motor housing prevent that. Instead, push the motor housing up to the ceiling, then rotate it to align with the screw holes in the bracket. When in the aligned position, the dimples will prevent the motor housing from falling off the bracket while you insert the screws. It can be installed without the light kit, although the manual does not explain how. It tells you to go to the Hunter web site and read the FAQ on it. Basically you detach the bottom part of the light kit, disconnect the black and white wires that power the lights, and place a closure plate (that comes with the fan) over that opening. The fan also comes with 2 small plastic "dummy terminals" that can be used to plug the ends of the connectors for the black and white wires (which remain in the fan housing) to help avoid any contact if those wires were to be energized. The connectors already shield the wires, so I think it will work satisfactorily even if you forget to use the "dummy terminals". We like this fan.
