Summary: I chose this hood because I needed a 42" hood that would match my vintage stove. The almond color matches perfectly, a lucky coincidence considering my stove was manufactured in the 1930's. Once we hooked it up (an easy procedure), I was surprised at all the convenient features: a high-speed "boost" button, a sensor that responds to temperature, a sensor to tell you when the filters need changing and easy-to-operate controls.
Summary: Received with dented screens. By the time installed and realized dented we are after the return window. Sad that we are stuck with defective merchandise. Purchased on Amazon, who said it was past the return window. VERY UNHAPPY WITH AMAZON For the record, I then called Broan regarding my plight and they graciously are sending two new screens with no questions asked, no returns and no charge. This is great service even though we got it through amazon.
Summary: Overall, nice hood for the price. Fan is strong but quite noisy at level 3 and up. Light is bright. They provide a damper for the rectangular duct connection but not for the round duct connection, so you will need to buy a damper and a 7 inch duct. According to my plumber it would make more sense to provide damper for the round pipe since that is the option most people use. 2 day delivery with Prime was excellent.
Nicely built. The fan and lighting controls work nicely. Arrived in perfect shape.

Summary: Nicely built. The fan and lighting controls work nicely. Arrived in perfect shape. When the lights are on low, they make for a great night-light for the kitchen. One drawback, though the filter screens extend over the entire bottom, the blower-style fan is on the left side, so most of the air is drawn from the left side. Do your heavy cooking on the left side of the stove.
Summary: Great hood for the price. Straightforward/standard venting with multiple installation options. Delayed shut-off very handle. A little louder that I would have expected in the second and third fan speeds. Boost mode is outrageously powerful, and really only needs to be used in case of a fire. MR bulb option really lights the working surface.
Summary: This Hood is beautiful and love the lighting especially at night my kitchen looks Sexy when on low lighting. All my friends love it also. Great deal and dn't be afraid to buy one. I really can't say anything worng about this Hood.
Summary: The range hood is nice and deep. At the lowest fan speed, you can barely hear it run which is nice. I like the 2 bulbs (one on each side). It makes it much brighter than one in the middle and I like the 2 brightness level. All in all, has what I need and wanted.
