Summary: We use it mostly at low speed for the fan and it is very quiet. Likewise the two LED spots I bought instead of the Halogen spots work great and I am saving electricity. From the time I took it out of the box and it was fully installed was 35 minutes. I would definitely watch the installation video.
Pros: Attractive, Led Lights Work Well, Lightweight, Powerful, Quiet, Sleek
Summary: This hood looks nice and at first I liked it. Then I noticed that a lot of the fumes coming of the stove were not going through the filter. They were going around the light bulbs bypassing the filter. I took the filters off and took a look and there is nothing between the light socket and fan to prevent this. This is really a poor design and potentially a fire hazard.
Summary: Simply, it works great. Toggle switches are simple, low fan is silent, quite efficient, hi is a minor hurricane. Lighting is just as efficient, low you can see most everything, high is like high noon on a sunny day, lets you see fine details when you are cooking seriously. BTW, looks great also.
Good Quality and Handsome but Reasonably-Priced Stainless Range Hood

Summary: IN our increasingly marketing-segmented corporatist (Depot of Home) world, you have the choice of buying either the cheap product that is not worth buying, or paying more than twice or thrice as much for something of quality. I don't accept this! I want reasonably-priced quality, and that is what this Broan Fan provides. It is not as quiet as the most expensive fans, but it is much quieter than the cheapest.
Summary: This replaced an over the range microwave. The fan works much better and on low you hardly hear it. I get annoyed by loud fans and I can use this one on high with no problems. The suggested light bulbs are very bright even on low. It has a clean, uncluttered appearance.
Summary: This is a fair price for a great product. Looks clear and I love the lighting. We rely on the lights for night time use. There are two settings and the higher setting allows you to clearly see what you are actually cooking! Also the fan works great. Our old one did not work at all and the smoke alarm always went off. Not with this one. You can barely hear the lower setting.
Summary: I found that the low setting for the fan is very slow and does not move much air. Also, the highest setting for the light is very bright; almost too bright to use. Installation was fairly easy. It would have been nice though if they would have provided the halogen lamps. It seemed silly that I spend a decent amount of money on their product and have to buy lamps separately.
