Rated 4 out of 5 by Lynnbob Broan Range Hood
This is a nice looking, effective range hood. It has a charcoal filter to remove odors that works well. It is high quality stainless steel and has bright lights and three speeds for the fan. If I could change one thing, I would put in LED lights as the halogen lights give off nice bright light but too much heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeaAllan This Is The One If Your Space Above Stove Is Tight
Read all the reviews about this hood and almost passed on it because of a few negative comments. Glad we didn't. We replaced a LG microwave with turbo ventilation. This hood is so much better at getting the cooking small out of the kitchen. When we looked at other manufacturers we couldn't find one that worked for our clearance between the cooktop and the hood vent. This was one of a few that met spec. We have used it six months now and like everything about it. Bright, Quiet on low speed and normal on high. You won't hear the low setting. Ours is above a gas cooktop and unlike some, I really like that it automatically bumps up the fan speed if there is too much heat. Then dials it down automatically. I installed it myself with no assistance and would say it was average difficulty. The fact that you can't turn it off only means you have a ton of heat that needs to be moved. Ours hasn't stayed on by itself more than a few times and then only for a couple of minutes max. Haven't had to replace a bulb yet but it comes with a remover so am not expecting any issue there. I would highly recommend this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gilpin Great fit and features
This performs as I had hoped. Nice design, great fan, light and accepts carbon filters. The remote has such limited range that I choose not to use it. Solid unit that fits my new kitchen design and wanted a unit that had a reputation of reliability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AshlandAlan This product has great engineering, materials, and performance.
This product has delivered the quality and performance we were led to expect by the salesperson at the appliance store. It features button controls for lighting and fan speed, and it is easy to clean the stainless steel filters. The noise level is low for the high CFM capacity this product delivers. We are pleased with this purchase decision for our gas cook top.

Rated 1 out of 5 by meew Not effective... poor design.
The blower is located off-center to the left, so anything that is cooked on the right side of your range is not captured. Even on the highest speed, cooking odors escaped into the house and not through the exhaust. Despite having to forfeit the installation costs, we ended up returning the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rickie71 Great Quiet Range Good
We love this unit. Very quiet. Nightlight feature with photosensor comes in handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LongIslander An excellent range hood for home use
We just bought this for a remodeled kitchen. Our decision was based on the fact that, in the old kitchen, we had installed a similar model about three years ago. It performed as promised. The present one is more powerful, very quiet and with more options.
If you remove the filters for washing, make sure you put them back with the proper face looking down; else, you cannot remove the filter w/out destroying it and they are expensive. That is one item Broan engineers may wish to reconsider.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gale Great size, appearance, effective, but impossible for me to set clock and timed functions..
Love everything about this range hood except the programming/control buttons. By trial and error I have learned to adjust light level and fan level. In over a year I have not been able to set or use the clock. The problem is that the buttons are black on a black background. Labels are useless for the same reason, and not adequate. User documentation is woefully inadequate and needs to be written for someone totally new to the product. The range hood is over my head (good), provides light down on the cooking surface where I need it (good), but even with a step
stool and flashlight I cannot figure out how to set the clock!
