Summary: Bought this to replace the original range hood installed by the builder. Installation was a bit of a struggle because of the difference in ducting. Required cutting a new hole in the shelf above the unit, and a new sheet metal transition piece.
Summary: Light works great, fan is exceptionally quiet. Only down side was needing to retrofit the duct work to the size of the air aperature on top, which is not standard size and not available locally. Wished it came with the duct connection. Functionally, after installing, it is fantastic.
Summary: NOTE - This review is based on the unit as ordered through Amazon, not the unit in general. I ended up getting it from another source and it was perfect. I ordered this unit through Amazon since I needed it the next day and Amazon could get it to me. However, the first unit arrived damaged.
Summary: Although i was hoping for a hood that had controls on the underside and these are on the front, i am very, very pleased with this purchase. The design is sleek, and the operation of the fan is good -- has 4 settings, most often we use 2, occasionally 3.
