Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by denbigfish This was my answer! Great performance !
After 3 years of dealing with moisture and humidity from showering, I installed this superior bathroom fan.
I don't have the biggest bathroom, but with low ceilings with this house (90"), the humidity really was bad in the warmer months. I always had to keep the door open from the bathroom.
Installation was a breeze. I positioned the fan in the middle of the bathroom so it could help with the commode as well. I can't believe how quiet that motor is. As for price, you get what you pay for. Under a hundred bucks fit my wallet perfectly.
The ceiling vent is stylish.
Thanks Home Depot !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ayjay Great fan for the money!
I'm not sure why other people had problems getting the cover to sit flush as mine installed perfectly. The fan is quiet and was the first time that I can remember not having to wipe the mirror down after a shower... no condensation whatsoever! It seems like its very efficient as it doesn't make much noise at all yet it's powerful enough to clear all the humidity from my bathroom after a hot shower. I bought this fan since it was priced extremely well for a 90cfm fan that only produced 1 sonnes. Overall very happy with it.

Wish someone would have told me that this fan is NOT a replacement fan.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by vssss Great Fan, Very Quiet
I really enjoy this fan. It did require a little extra work on the install, like needing a 4" exhaust line and having to cut back a little more drywall to accommodate the fan box, but those issues were to be expected on a replacement fan.
The directions were also a little vague on how the grill fit into the housing, but once I figured that out, it sits nice and snug against the ceiling. Those issues brought the score down to a four.
The wiring was very simple with the included connectors, and the fan is immovable with the recommended securement.
The fan is VERY quiet, to the point that we often forget to turn the fan off when we are done because we can't hear it. I also have yet to get a steamed-up mirror (had the fan 6 months) so it must be doing something right.
Not only do I recommend this fan, I am installing another in our master bathroom next week.

I have installed this fan before. It is a very quiet fan and moves a good volume of air.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NowASemiProPainter Good Exhaust Fan
I give this 5 stars because it works well and is very quiet. I can't really compare against much besides the cheap fan installed by my builder. This fan was relatively easy to install and does a good job of exhausting the moist air from my shower area. It is also very quiet, as now it sometimes gets left on by accident.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doug A great fan.
I really don't understand why so many had trouble.
It is true that this is not a drop in replacement for those fans builders typically put into new homes, so it does take a little extra work to fit into the ceiling, change the pipe size and I also put a new roof vent in. The only thing I used from the original installation was the wire that powered the fan. My goal was to ventilate the 400 cu ft room in just a few minutes. At 90 cfm this unit does the job. I anticipated a lot of noise but this model was far quieter that the original propeller type I replaced.
It does take a little extra work and some familiarity with home construction. I started in the bathroom, dropped the old fan and disconnected to old pipe. Went to the roof and removed the old vent, cut the plywood opening for my new rooftop unit. A 3 foot vent line was all I needed and I hung that assembly loosely in the opening. I went downstairs again and resized the drywall opening, set the new brace then attached the power and vent pipe. I purposely set the fan unit 1/4" recessed in the drywall. At this point I put the grill in with no trouble and back to the roof a second time to mount the vent and seal up the shingles.
All told I spent about two hours doing the actual work. And after a year I am still happy and have no roof leaks.
