Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jeffrey Well made inexpensive replacement
This is a well made inexpensive dryer vent hood we purchased to replace a plastic unit that had failed. We live in South Florida so plastic is damaged by UV and fails within 5-10 years. to be fair, this unit is aluminum and will also deteriorate from the salt spray prevalent in most coastal regions.
A better albeit more expensive choice would be copper or stainless steel for those installations with direct salt exposure.

Good quality vent with screen to keep out unwanted quests. Slightly costlier than I wanted to spend but a better solution than plain vent.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jim210 Poor manufacturing quality
Vent was visibly out of square. Did not notice until getting ready to install. Very poor manufacturing quality.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Robb Decent Vent With Big Reservations
Vent tube measures about 4.5" in length. I forgot to measure its length before installation. Good practice to spec the layout before too deep in the job. I used 4" galvanized vent pipe which presumably will not accumulate fiber particles as had the flexible vent pipe it replaced.
The leaky seal of my dryer filter had not presented a problem before as my previous dryer vent had no bird/insect screen. This screen fills very quickly with fiber particles which can be mostly cleared with a brush from the outside while dryer is in use.
This vent would be perfect for non-particulate laden air and would be much better with an easily removable bird/insect screen for dryer vent applications..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by filmmonkey Been up on the walls for more than 2 years. Still look good and work well
I have two of these on outlets from my bathroom vents, and one of these on the kitchen extractor. All were well made, easy to install, look nice and neat on the outside of the house and are working well. I like that they include the metal grills to keep critters out, and the damper always returns to the 'closed' position. When I put them up I thought they'd be ugly on the exterior of the house but you don't really notice them and actually they look quite good.
