Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Noshido Nice room to room vent.
I bought this vent fan for a basement apartment. There was little air flow between the rooms, so I installed this vent to circulate the air more effectively. It worked great for this application. The only complaint I have is that it is a loud fan. For an already noisy basement, it's not really a problem, but if you wanted to install it in a quieter place it could be an annoyance. It moves a lot of air, more than I had expected.
Installation was pretty easy, since the wiring was already in place. Cut a whole, attach wires, insert fan, job done.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Joe good little fan but yes, very loud.
Bought this thinking eh how loud could it be?? Installed and let it run during the day, did an excellent job moving air. By 3am i was wondering what all that noise was coming from the other end of the house. It was this little fan, somehow. It sounds like a fan of at least 3x the size. If you like the static of a fan when you sleep, and need one of these, definitely grab it. If you're a light sleeper, stay away. If you're in the middle, try it. Aside from the noise, it does its job very well.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JayG Not recommended for existing wall use
The design is not suitable for use in an existing wall, in spite of what the specifications say. There is an electrical connection cover box on the side of the fan that requires an additional, box shaped cut, that's 1.5" wider than the circle cut out of the wallboard for placing the fan. But the grill supplied will not cover that hole, leaving an unsightly chunk of missing wallboard showing.
The directions say that one should slide the fan into place and THEN place the cover on the box, which is impossible with the wall in place. They supply clips to retain the fan to the wallboard, but as designed, the installer cannot follow the directions. The fan can be installed if the cover is discarded and the electrical connections are simply stuffed into the wall but that is against the electrical code and creates a hazardous condition.
If you need a fan that can be installed in an already finished wall, as both an engineer and an electrician, I strongly recommend against this one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WarminCO Works well, a little noisy, junction box a pain to install
Electrical junction box located on the side of the fan where it will be inside the wall and it must be removed to get the fan inside the round hole. Takes two people, one on each side of the wall, to maneuver and reattach the electrical junction box while it inside the wall. It can be done, but a little frustrating.
Fan is noisy unless you install a rheostat (any light dimmer switch works). Moves air efficiently and quietly once the rheostat is installed.
Our purpose was to move air from downstairs family room where the wood stove is located into the stairway where a ceiling fan picks up the warm air and moves it to the main living room. This arrangement keeps the downstairs family room from being too hot while increasing the main living room temperature 8 degrees.
Well worth the effort to install as it makes much more efficient use of the wood stove heat.

This fan is a little loud, but it does the job well, however the housing was not adequate, the wire holding plate the screws were stripped wouldn't tight so I removed the plate and attach the wire hardness directly into the 2X4 frame.
