Summary: This is such an improvement over my over-the-range microwave vent hood. It was a nice microwave, but I was tired of setting off my smoke alarm when I was cooking! I'm doing a lot better with a little counter microwave and this amazing range hood. I've been tracking the price and looking at hoods for over a year. This is the one I wanted. Thank you, Amazon, for the great price. It's all installed and I couldn't be happier.

Summary: It's a great product if you're not the one who has to install it. I fancy myself as a fairly adept do-it-your-selfer, but placing the four screws that hold the unit in place was a challenge for me. The screws have to be started under the cabinet and threaded several turns before lifting the unit into a position where the four screw heads protrude through four slotted holes; then the unit is slid back, into the slots, before tightening the screws.
Decent product but poor customer service when purchased from Overstock Closeouts

Summary: Dented in shipping, fortunately the dented part was hidden by cabinets. Not high quality stainless as magnet will stick to it. Very quite and the lighting is very nice, just wish it was LED. Much larger surface area for vents than most. Installation requires you to take several pieces out, so a little bothersome, but overall, very nice looking. Range hoods in general seem way more expensive than what comes in the package, or what the components are made of.
Summary: We installed this above a 36" 5-burner gas stove. When we have a couple burners on, and no fan, the fan automatically turns on to vent excess heat. When we have the fan on low, and there's too much heat, it turns itself on higher until it's cooled down, then it goes back to the original setting. Very nice. The lights are very bright, and they put out quite a bit of heat all by themselves.
Nice Looking Hood - Has too many unnecessary features

Summary: Love my hood of 5 months. I am experiencing everything everyone else has said. Auto night needs to be reset with power outages, clock always minutes a head. Installation under cabinet was total pain in rear and required an extra set of small hands. Had to replace 2 bulbs already and they are not cheep. Wish I could override the fan override that kicks in, I don't mind it coming on but stays on too long after heat source is gone.
Summary: Finished edges have cheap appearance. Display & controls should be larger. Does not come with line cord and wire clamp. As received, blower wheel (soft plastic) was badly warped and out of balance. Hood viberated like a car tire badly out of balance. However, tech support was very responsive and placed an order for a replacement wheel with no hassle. Quad lighting and low noise level were primary reasons for selecting this product.
