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 2.0 out of 5.0 by quinj bath exhaust too close to the sheathing.
the exhaust part was at the top of the fan and places it right next to the roof sheathing. hard to wrap the grip around the vent line. otherwise it was ok.

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

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by unhappyPro Not performing as rated
I'm a contractor and did a quality installation of this fan less than a year ago. Straight run of steel duct less than 6' long. No crimps, one gentle 20* bend. Plenty of ceiling insulation (R-50) above a heated bathroom. My clients have been complaining about condensation from day one. I had my HVAC contractor test the airflow with a duct airflow meter. He measured 50 CFM - not even close to the 90 CFM stated. Service rep said the only recourse was to pull the whole unit and bring it in to SEE if I could get a replacement under warranty. Basically cut out the drywall and disconnect the wiring and duct work - at my expense - to maybe get a replacement that works better. And then install it all over again - at my expense. Very unhappy with Hampton Bay. Panasonic next time for sure

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

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jaysun Good fan, but NEVER buy one.
For pure performance and value this fan is great -- five stars. I also have no issues with installation. The issue I have is that support for the HamptonBay bathroom exhaust fans is very poor. I had one of these units malfunction due to the motor failing. It was easy to remove the blower housing, but the only source of a replacement motor&housing is to purchase a new fan and swap the new fan's blower housing for the bad one. (I contacted HamptonBay support and they stated that they would never have parts for this fan.) For this reason alone, I would NEVER buy a another HamptonBay bathroom fan. Also, I do not know this for sure, but my interpretation of what I was told was that they do not carry parts for any of their bathroom exhaust fans. They are really nice fans, but until HamptonBay makes replacement motors and other critical parts available, stay away from them. I will probably stick with Nutone from now on as they seem to be the standard and parts seem to be readily available.

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.

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.
