Rated 4 out of 5 by Curdio Inexpensive and easy to replace busted vent fan
Was very easy to remove old one and put in new one. Literally plug and play. Interesting buying the whole unit was cheaper than just buying the replacement motor which I would have preferred since I did not need to replace the box and grille.

Rated 5 out of 5 by exhaustfan great price, clever design
Great fan, maybe, if there is a deluxe model, it could be quieter, but its not too loud

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunup existing fan replacement
We installed this replacement fan in 3/4 bath. The fan is strong and clears shower dampness very efficiently. But it is loud. If the instructions for replacing the fan with a plug were clearer, I would have been able to replace the fan myself rather than hiring someone. Since the existing fan plugged into the ceiling, it was very easy to replace; no wiring or going into crawl space was required. The instructions didn't say how to remove the existing fan (same type). Since we were replacing an existing fan of the same type, I wish I could have purchased this model without the housing; I just had to throw out the brand new housing; a waste of money and materials. Overall I would recommend this fan for a replacement; this one fit into our existing fixture perfectly. If you are installing a new one without an existing opening, then I would suggest you look for a model which is quieter. Our old one lasted 22 years; I assume this model will be as reliable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Giorgos Over 6 months now and works great
6+ months ago i replaced my small bath's fan.
i can not complain AT ALL..... for the price it sells this is absolutely amazing!!
It removes foul air efficiently and works like a charm.
With respect to noise level.... it is noisy, but i do not visit the toilet for reading or napping and have no problem with a little noise side-effect for 2-3 mins.
I was very skeptical buying it because i thought it would not last for the ridiculous price i paid. So far so good...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lee88jr Loud but work well in smaller bath.
Have this in both baths. Works great in 40 sq. ft. bath. Noisy is my complaint since it is next to my TV room & have to turn tv up when it is on.
Builders also put same model Broan 688 k in my larger bath, 80- to 85 sq ft. I understand why it seems much quieter now. 50 cfm not enough power. No suction.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mike Motor bearings fail.
The bearings fail and the motor seizes up after a few years. I have several installed in my apartment building and I have to replace a motor unit every couple years. Higher quality bearings/lubricant should be used.
