Good combo of features...only dinged 1 star for the price

Summary: We got this to replace the range hood that has been in the house since we bought it over 20 years ago. BIG improvement in air flow and light. I went for this model because we had already used a Broan to replace the bathroom vent and it has worked very well there for several years now.
Summary: I love the way this range hood looks - stainless with black. It fit perfectly in the space we had and was easy to install. The fan has two settings but is extremely loud on the high setting - we can hear it completely across the house.
Summary: Besides mangling the ductwork in order to avoid a stud removal, the installation of this went very smoothly. We will have to put some strips on the side as it doesn't quite fill out the overhead cabinet space, but its pretty powerful and the light is very good.
Summary: My husband installed this himself, attaching it to the already existing exhaust pipe to outside. It does vent well, but I know there are better out there. For the price I think it's a good product. There are two fan speeds, the 2nd speed is much more effective, but much noisier.
