Rated 4 out of 5 by acomsumer Looks great, easy to install, and very quiet
This Broan model is a great buy for the 300 to 500 price range hood. Installation was straight forward and easy. Even at high setting, this hood is a lot quieter than some of the other brand I've experienced. The 4 speed setting is great so you can adjust the level of suction needed. The 2 draw back I would like to point out is the type of bulb and fan placement.
The bulb used is halogen and so it gets really hot. I wish they would use an incandescent bulb instead of the halogen type. Second is the suction fan is located on the left side of the unit under the left filter. If they had it place in the center, the suction for both side would be more effective. I have to always use highest fan speed when having something cooking on the right side of the unit to get optimum removal of smoke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VickyA Preforms as advertised
In today's world so many things never preform as advertised. Not this Broan vent hood . . . . . it is fantastic! Love the lighting, the low sound level and programming options. Especially like the auto off after done cooking that keeps venting for you after cooking but you don't have to get up later and turn off yourself. Don't hesitate purchasing if this hood has the features you are looking for.

The exhaust is great, so quite, yet it moves a large volumn of air quickly. I love the night light feature, I can't say enough about this product, we just love it.

I am sorry to say that I am disappointed with this unit. It has a built in heat sensor that throws the unit in high exhaust cycle at a prolonged length of time and quite annoying in sound to be honest. There is NO way of bypassing this feature and for that I am disappointed with this item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Installer2 Overall an excellent product
Installation instructions are very poor. This makes for a difficult install, primarly with the mounting and electrical connections. Once installed
it works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scott3333 Great product, installation can be tricky
Lots of good things to say about use of the product. Plenty of air movement. Great lighting. Easy controls. Takes up minimal room. Looks stylish. Very cost effective. High marks all around.
Installation can be a bit tricky in matching up the output of the vent hood to existing duct work. We had to do some modifications to get this to work, but one of my buddies is an HVAC pro and he made it happen. Not something that I could have done myself. So just a heads up on that.
Otherwise, extremely pleased with the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alraune Sleek and powerful
Has been effective with smoke and order removal and wonderfully quiet to operate which was the combination I sought in features. Nice looking and easy to clean. Lighting is beautiful but the control panel could definitely use simplification and easier operation.
