Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 30
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Baba40 It is quiet and effiicient. For a small bathroom, this was a big improvement.
This is a replacement for a 35 year old unit. It did require upgrading to a 4" duct from the original 3" version. It was worth the effort. The fan actually removes the moist air and I have yet to have any condensation on the bathroom mirror after taking a shower. And, it is quiet. Based on its cost, I am my expectations were exceeded. Attached is a photo. I made this upgrade while in the process of a little remodel on the floor above.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OJay Qujiet and efficient
I was refurbishing my bathroom and purchased this as a replacement for a too-loud exhaust fan. Installation was pretty seamless, but attaching the face plate was a little difficult because I had an extra 3/8" of bead board on the ceiling. That worked out fine, though. The fan is very quiet and the face plate is attractive. The price was reasonable for the quality of the product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 5dcole Instructions worthless
I installed this fan yesterday, it is extremely quite and a solid product. Why not 5 stars? The instructions are not just vague there down right confusing. If you buy this fan do yourself a favor and just toss the booklet and figure it out. This fan can also be installed from inside only. Cut 9 1/2 x 9 1/2 hole for fan. Unscrew duct bracket from fan housing, place this duct piece in ceiling and install duct line (4" hose clamp sperate purchase), wiring, and bracket to roof brace. Slide motor into place, reattach to duct bracket, screw main body to roof brace. Install grill to Y shape brace on motor housing.

If you have a small bathroom this is the fan you want. It's so quiet that most people aren't aware that it is even on. Highly recommend.

This fan is super quiet. It seems to move more air than our old exhaust fan which was also rated at 50 CFM so I am very pleased. As someone else noted, if you are replacing an existing fan you may find this unit is considerably larger. That gave me some challenges but the quiet was worth it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mjo1 I installed 6 of these in 6 hours, amazingly simple
I replaced 6 existing ventilators.
the existing fans were a 25 year old 7½ x 9½ noise makers, they had to be 10 Sones or greater.
I allowed myself 2 days labor for the job,
having +20 years experience in the remodel electric trade,
I know there are unseen problems forthwith, so I told the customer it should take 2 days.
To my amazement, I found the the duct/ electric junction box was removable from the rest of the box, So, that made extra room for those 2 connections, the the box just slid right up into the 9½ x 9½" hole,
re-attached the elect/vent attachment to the housing,
shot 3 screws thru the side of the can into the joist for the mounting, re-install the squirrel cage & trim and was done.
the ONLY drawback was that a 4-3½" vent adapter was not included.
The vent was SOOOOO quiet, when the owner asked me to turn it on, I told her "It is!!"
50CFM isn't really alot, but "Silence is golden".
So, if you are wanting to replace an existing one &
have the extra width available &
have the extra height available,
you cannot go wrong with this vent.
why 4 stars?
I find it hard to give anything 5 stars,
it would have had to install itself to gain 5 ( but it seemed like it almost did)
