Excerpt: Liked the entire unit up until last week when the blower motor began humming and would not rev past an idle. For this kind of money, I expect the motor to last more than a couple of years. Blower turns freely without power, so apparently the motor itself is cooked.
Summary: We always wonder why there is no cooking smell in restaurant. This one will help you to achieve that level of satisfaction. It looks like those commercial one, it also performs like a commercial one. Very powerful blowing power and it will suck up the whole manual.
Summary: I live in a small condo. Previous to purchasing this hood we only had the blower in the over-the-stove microwave. Decided to go with this hood for our remodel. Prior to switching to a hood our smoke alarm would go off constantly even if there was a breath of smoke in the air.
This hood nearly sucked my beard up through the vents

Summary: Holy cow! This hood nearly sucked my beard up through the vents! I like that I can adjust it for low speed and quiet, excellent for simmering, but if I am cooking Chinese in a wok, I can turn it up high (yes, it is loud on that setting) and it easily sucks up all the smoke.
Summary: Great power, fairly easy to install. If I could I would give this 4.5 stars. The fan power on this is really great, we are loving how well it works. Noise level, on low to med low you barely notice the noise while you are cooking, so I don't see any issues in that area.
Summary: Very Powerful Range Hood. My wife loves filter system, which is easy to clean. Electrical circuit is simple and easy to repair. The only problem is that halogen lamp is difficult to install / replace. But otherwise, it's perfect range hood I ever had.
