Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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! May 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 5, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very disappointed in this product. I had the fan fixture installed and it is quiet, I must say that. However, after about 6 months use, the light will intermittently shut off. I must let it sit for anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. There is no timing as to when it will decide to shut off. Sometimes it's 6 minutes, sometimes 10 minutes. Needless to say, it makes my morning showers quite interesting. I have had several people look at it and it totally baffles them. Unfortunately, I was unable to return it within the warrantee period due to a life changing event, so I will replace it with something else as soon as I am able. February 20, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good low-end bathroom fan Good fan for small bathroom. Not too loud. Efficient enough. Price was good. My only complaint is that the plastic covering the light is tinted a terrible shade of blue that makes any bulb you put in look very harsh. March 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Noisy but economical bathroom vent fan and light. My reason for not giving this fan/light set a higher rating is it is rather noisy. It was harder removing the old fan compared to how easily this fan went in the same hole in the ceiling. March 10, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Noisey Installed three of these units in less than three months in 2012. One in a 3/4 bath as a replacement in my own home and two in bathroom remodels for clients. All three are noisey and rattle. They have all been dissassembled and I have had to install sticky felt pads through out to rectify the problem. Not quite sure I understand because I have used Broan products for years in many new homes and remodels and have never had a problem, but these seem to be suffering from an engineering problem. FYI-If your going to install a bath fan in any bathroom, DO NOT install anything less than a 70 cfm. I don't care how small the bath is or what the manufacturers say. Spend the extra money and get a good quality one, trust me. I still am a big Broan fan, we have had great success with their products, just not this one. I February 28, 2013
