Summary: Perhaps it is unique to this range hood I bought or not, my unit when I turn on the fan it not only vibrate the hood portion but also the whole wall and I could hear the noise even upstairs. At this point, the source of the noise is due to unbalance in the circular fan which is one piece.
Summary: We looked all over for the 42 inch range hood and it is uncommon, we looked at other stores and saw Broan to be a reputable company. It was exactly as we thought it would be and it looks great.
Summary: Really nice looking range hood and installed very easily. Based on some of the other reviews about the motor making a loud noise after 6 months or so... I looked it over and found that there could be some potential for vibration/rattles from the vertical vent cutouts.
Summary: Very good product, and the price was terrific! My total price was about $80 less than I would have paid for the identical item at Sears (if one includes sales tax). The item is sleek and attractive looking, and performs well. It's not noisy, although it's not "super quiet" either.
Its quiet, good looking, good installation directions.

Summary: I wanted a quiet hood, and at a reasonable price. It met my expectations I liked the installation notes, and the relatively easy mounting. My only problem was that the power inlet didn't quite match the source location.
Summary: I like it and it looks nice. we had it installed and left the blue protective tape on the front until installation was complete....... our mistake....... when we removed the blue tape we noticed a small ding in the font of it.
Summary: i installed this range hood the same day i received it. i like it very much. the one problem i had with it was the smell of the black paint. left a fishy smell odor. i could not figure out what that was at first untill i smelt the range hood itself. (funny) all in all it preforms fine.
We were able to straighten this so it isn't as bad. The wiring knock-out was impossible to knock out ...

Summary: Was what I expected as far as description and it arrived quickly. Instructions were vague with little to no detail - but how hard is it to install a range hood??? . Biggest complaint is that it arrived with several dents. (Too much trouble to return so I just dealt with it.
