Not as loud as expected. Works well in bathroom..... good "price performer". I put it on a mechanical timer from Lowe's. The Lowe's timer is quiet - does not "tick" like the one from Home Depot. Fan wiring connection instructions could be better. Overall I am very pleased!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oneofmyfans Good item and quiet operation. Removes air and kitchen odors well.
We found this item on Home Depot website and decided it was just the right thing
for our project.
We needed a kitchen exhaust to the outside of our house and wanted something
that looked pleasing.
The project was fairly easy requiring approximated 3 hours, but I am only a moderate
Tools needed were; drill, drywall saw and extra wire to run to the switch.
We added the switch/outlet combo and ran the wire through the upright joist 2x4 through
a hole provided by the drill.
In addition, we added the exhaust hood to the outside (also available at Home Depot) even
though a plastic vent cover is include in the purchase. The hood was an additional cost, but
reasonable and worked well with the fan's fittings. We also painted the vent cover to match
the color of the house's exterior.
Nice fan and looks and runs great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CaptainObivous Moves Air, loudly
Much louder than expected. at the RPM it runs at and with the fan design it makes a high pitched fan blade noise. A better fan design would mitigate the acoustics.
However it moves air and allows for circulation in a basement apartment though it is still audible upstairs, at the edge of hearing but audible.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ben Great Fan So Far
Although I agree with the other reviewers that it is unfortunate that the screw holes to secure the fan are so close to the body and therefore to the giant hole you've just created in your wall, I was able to build out from the studs with some 2x4 and secure the screws into the wood.
The fan has worked great so far! I cut a piece of window screen and added it on the outside just to prevent small bugs from working their way in, but we haven't had any problem with that.
The flaps only open when the fan is on or rarely when there are sudden gusts of wind. We haven't experienced much in the way of drafts in the room, although it's warm outside right now so we might not notice.
Altogether, it's a great buy, especially for the price!
