Summary: We are getting our kitchen redone and just had this installed last weekend, but so far so good. The real test will be Thanksgiving Day. It is definitely powerful, with a beautiful low profile and we like that it is GE because our range is also GE. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is lack of use and when the fan starts up and shuts down it sounds like it rattles the filter inside.
Summary: Purchasing this hood was sort of an afterthought during our kitchen renovation and I was a bit hesitant due to the higher price. I did some research on hoods and since all of our kitchen is GE Profile we decided to pull the trigger on the GE hood and we couldn't be happier. We are using it ventless / recirculating and the filter system is easy to use and the motor is VERY powerful. We love the sleek modern look and the bright lighting as well.
Summary: This is very beautiful. It needs to be more adjustable for height, we could not adjust it at all when you have 8 ft ceilings. We would have liked it to be up higher at 30", instead it is only 25" so my husband is tall and it is in his way somewhat. The directions are terrible and so far it has taken 2 days and we are not totally finished installing it yet. It suctions just fine. We have ducted to outside. The light is very bright so that is great.
