Excerpt: Great pro hood, I had others for a lot more money but they just don't work as well. If you want a better hood you would have to go to a remote blower model. And if you want you can replace halogen bulbs with led.
Update: Broan really came through! Excellent service!

Excerpt: I made a previous comment & wrote a very negative review about this range hood (refer to mikimikh, Saratoga). Well, an actual person from Broan contacted me, Tammy, and she actually read/listened to my issues & she came through for me!
Excerpt: Bought it for looks; paying for poor quality. During installation, missing part cost us another $200 to custom fab. Within a first month of operation, started making this metal-on-metal grinding noise that made it sound like a jet engine taking off, rite in the middle of our house! Scares kids!
Excerpt: The hood has a clean industrial look. The SS has an even, attractive finish. I installed the hood in an enclosed porch over my grill. The blower is noisy at full speed, but you can adjust the speed and reduce the noise as needed. It does a great job exhausting all of the smoke from my grill.
