The unit is extremely quiet and sucks out air like no tomorrow

Summary: Originally installed this unit as non-vented but I wasn't thrilled. It was a bit noisy and fumes/steam from cooking on the front burner would be drawn outward versus into the fan...maybe due to negative air pressure caused by fast moving air above the unit. Not a physicist so not sure.
Excerpt: We have this fan over an induction range, installed as recirculating. Most of the time, we use it at the lowest setting. It does the job. One time, we burned something in the microwave, and we used it at the highest setting. Even with the charcoal filter, it took a long time to clear the smell.
Summary: Great looking hood and the best lights, period. I installed this alone and did not have the problems some people noted. I did not have to drill extra holes as one person noted, but you must have a long extension to completely tighten the hood screws to the bottom of the cabinet.
Summary: This is a wonderful - the lighting area is perfect for our stove top (albeit halogen lights) and the fan kicks on when it detects heat (pretty cool). Just wish it had TWO fans instead of the one on the left side, then it would be amazing!
Summary: It works nicely and looks very good. It gives the kitchen a clean and neat look. The lights are bright and very helpful when cooking at night. The only complain, thin frail metal casing. Difficult to put up.
Summary: WARNING: product page reads this is 410CFM but that is not true. It really is 350CFM. You need to be aware of this as you are comparing products and going for the most airflow like I was. I hope that info helps Still, even with that mistake, its a great vent. It looks fantastic.
Lots of light with 4 Halogen Bulbs. Plenty of suction even on low!

Summary: Works Great! Lots of light with 4 Halogen Bulbs. Plenty of suction even on low! Medium works for most options. High is not that loud. Looks awesome in my kitchen! I really like the full underside screens that are dishwasher safe.
