Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BR38 Awesome fan
Don't try installing this yourself. I scratched my kitchen cabinets in my many attempts. Had to move the electrical over from the previous fan as well. Watch out for burrs! Cut my hands up when aligning and insulating the damper. Finally did get the bugger installed myself but had to contort my body to hold the fan and fasten the hood. Removes heat and odor efficiently. I cleaned the oven and the smoke alarms did not go off! Took a reading with a laser thermometer and the temp of the counter adjacent to the stove was the same temp as the living room while the oven was self cleaning. It looks great and is somewhat noisy when on high.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by khiem2007 Not really good
I install the vent, but braket to hold the vent it's not hold strong, I feel it's should be full off.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Trosie It is a high quality product
Well built and strong air volume when needed. Lights are nice and bright. I wish it came with a built in cleaner though!

looks great, easy installation, the only problem I see so far is that unfortunately the fan is way to loud. We had done some research on the appliance, and most said the fan was pretty quit, well it is way to loud.
I WISH I WOULD HAVE PUT A REMOTE FAN IN MY ATTACK, AND HAVE IT DUCT TO THE UNIT

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sldg Wonderful, professional-looking hood!
I wanted a professional looking hood but needed a recirculating option as I didn't have a way to vent the hood outside. Broan offered that option. The hood is awesome! It's effective at removing smoke and odor, isn't terribly loud and looks great. Very pleased with my purchase. My contractor installed the hood so I'm uncertain as to the ease of installation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by iDIYdoYou Nice, but not great.
The mounting holes were not ideal for me as the front holes were too close to the front, and would be halfway into the cabinet frame. They were also on the small side for something so heavy. I prefer having it sized up, and slightly longer screws with a washer. I also had to readjust the rear mounted blower twice, as it would start rattling (not something I could live with as I spent the extra money for a quiet hood). The light bulbs were annoying to put in, but I didn't need a plunger or anything other than patience. It really should come with light bulbs and better knobs for the price.
After all said and done, it is nice looking, quiet on low, strong on high, and sucks out all the fumes from my Asian cooking. For what I paid, I wouldn't recommend it to others. I expect more for my money.
Note that the product/installation manual was located inside the actual hood. I didn't find it at first and thought it wasn't included and looked it up online before I started the install. Yes, I read before doing anything.

I have a gas stove and the builders hood fan didn't have enough power to clear fumes. This model does the trick. Very powerful. It is a bit noisy, but that is the tradeoff. Two lights are great and I can see what I am cooking easily. This looks very professional and clean. The baffles are a big selling feature for me as they can go in the dishwasher.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ghmac It was the best we could find for the price.
It looks great, and works. Improvements would be to send the suction cup needed to install the lights with the box. If I hadn't read the comments before purchase I would not have known to call Broan after installation to have them send said tool. Also the fan noise is a bit loud on high, but we only need the lowest setting so it works. We kept the suction cup, because we have other lights it works with, great benefit,;-)
