Rated 3 out of 5 by Schmitty don't use with flat roof; no need for light
it was the only one OSH sold for 4 inch duct.
almost impossible to install under flat roof in 2X6 joist space.
light is not needed and tungsten filament bulb will quickly burn out due to vibration.
low cost and no choice was why I bought it. works as advertised.
good choice for conventional sloped roof.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ChucktheHomeowner Cheap and NOISY
Why would anyone want a very loud fan? Sure, it is cheap and people want to try it due to price. After installation, it is so loud, you wish you had NEVER HEARD OF BROAN and gone with something better. The plastic cover resonates, metal pings, and noise STATES CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!

Rated 1 out of 5 by disatisfied don't forget to prewire or you are in trouble
I installed this unit and after reading the instructions was not warned to make sure the wiring was complete before the drywall ceiling is installed. There is no way to service the electric post installation. It also appears there is no way to replace the motor as the motor compartment is riveted in. Overall this unit was unsatisfactory

Rated 4 out of 5 by mattcheck American made
I just installed the broan 679 in my bathroom it replaced an old nutone fan only that just died. Big reason I bought this fan and light is because it's American made. Installation wasn't that bad. It's not real loud but it's not real quiet either that's why I bought it I like the noise I don't like hearing people use the bathroom.
There is some things that need improved like the installation instructions separate the different languages, give rough dimensions on the sheet not just the box, and also include wiring diagram for using 1 switch for light and fan. Also the grille doesn't have a lot of play in it so you really need to be sure the have the proper depth when installing. One last thing is the grille design to take it off and clean it will you will have to remove the light reflector to take grille all the way off. Those don't hurt the product just are things that could be improved.
Side note seen a bad review because someone didn't wire unit at time of install and put drywall up. Really use common sense look at unit first get familiar with it plan out install don't give negative review because of a mental error.

Rated 5 out of 5 by John124 The Broan bathroom fan/light is an excellent value, easily installed and quiet while in use.
The Broan bathroom light/fan is well designed, the instructions are easy to understand and follow. The fixture fits readily into the bathroom ceiling and takes about 1 hour to install when replacing an existing light/fan. The fan can be wired to operate either independently of or in conjunction with the light. The Broan bathroom light/fan is an attractive fixture with a strong, quiet fan that is an attractive addition to any bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobbyJimmy Perfect Balance of Quiet White Noise
This fan replaced an older model bathroom exhaust fan which was significantly noisier. This fan, has just the right balance of what I call a "Quiet White Noise". In other words, it has just enough noise so you know its on and covers any sounds that you may not want heard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SDB67 Great product at a great price!
I purchased this fan to use in my bathroom. I did the install myself, and it couldnt have been easier. The product is made very well, and I have had no issues with its performance. The fan is very quiet, yet very strong. I would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Richard59 Love this product.
I am very pleased with this product. It works very well and the fan is very quiet. Since the fan we had before this one, (not a broan brand) was very loud, I was very pleased with this fan and light fixture.
