Rated 2 out of 5 by RFTisTOOshort It is 2014 and this fixture doesn't know it.
It has been known for a long time that 100W incandescent bulbs were going the way of the dodo bird. Broan decided that it should still design products for 100W incandescent bulbs and nothing else. This fixture cannot handle a 100W-equivalent CFL or 100W-equivalent LED. They are too big for the fixture. These type of bulbs touch the nightlight - something that is probably not a good safe. Trying a 100W-equivalent halogen incandescent would probably melt the plastic. A 75W-equivalent LED fits, but, it is less light than a 100W bulb. I feel cheated by Broan since I cannot use the fixture with its full capability. If Broan wants to sell this fixture, it should include a lifetime supply of 100W bulbs.
The 4W nightlight is just barely adequate once the plastic cover is put in place.
The fan sound is acceptable and not too noisy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Candi Good product, but...
Unfortunately, after nearly 3 years, it's not working too well..I hope I won't have to replace it but I have a funny feeling that I might have to! I sure was hoping it would have lasted longer than this! The lighting is very good and up until recently, the fan worked well (because of flat paint and not semi-gloss paint being on my walls, I absolutely NEED a good fan to keep the walls from "sweating"). My bathroom fan gets used every day because of the long, hot showers easily fogging it up, then causing a lot of condensation on my walls. I can only give this product 3 stars now because of my current issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tcshyr94 Great Bath Fan
I'm completely remodeling the main bathroom in our 1920 home and I based my purchase for a ventilation fan on the cfm and sones ratings, as well as a reasonable price. This fan is fairly quiet despite the high volume of air and moisture it can move. It's not whisper quiet, but it's much, much better than other fans on the market.
It took about 2 hrs. for my electrician to install, mainly because we were dealing with an old lath and plaster ceiling. He commented about the high quality of the fan, and said that Broan makes the best fans on the market. I can't take advantage of the night light feature on this fan since I did not run the wiring for it. I wish I had the fan picked out before I ran wiring.
All in all, I recommend this fan for it's high quality and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dano Quite smooth performace.
I enjoy my new fan every morning, quite running, and the 4" duct moves the air. Also enjoy the regular and a night night feature. I'am using LED bulbs in both.
