Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DebW Wouldn't buy again
I bought this fan one year ago. It's design is pretty and decorative with the stainless accents. The outside of the fan began to rust after 8 months or so. Why would they design a bathroom fan with materials that rust?? Now a year has gone by and the motor has died. Not a good purchase!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by IrishD Bulbs barely fit
I have went thru countless bulbs trying to find a high enough wattage to get light thru the overly filtered and greenish glass cover. The cover sits so close to the unit that I have broken many just trying to get the cover back on. And forget about trying to fit the nightlight bulb in between those bulbs. Also, the permanent "hunter" label that is in the middle of the glass is unappealing.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brango Poor ventilation, almost completely rusted over
The only way I see this fan getting 100 CFM is with the cover off. With the cover on, it has a negligible effect on the humidity in the bathroom, and ours is positioned directly over the shower. It's also covered in rust. So now I need to decide between trying to refinish an ineffective bathroom fan, or purchasing another.
Maybe if the cover hung down farther, or if there were holes in the glass, it might work a bit better. But as designed, it's useless.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MarkM Doesn't do the job even in a small bathroom
I purchased this fan because I wanted a fan that wasn't the white plastic with louver-style cover that so many seem to be. It is much better looking but the performance seems to suffer because of the design. Our bathroom is small, 6'x9'x8' so this 100cfm fan should have no problem keeping it ventilated. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Installed correctly we still have moisture on the ceiling after 20 minutes of leaving the fan running AFTER a shower. A fan shouldn't need to run more than 5 minutes after a shower. There is plenty of clearance under our door so the issue is not due to the fan not getting enough air to pull through. It seems that the style is disadvantageous to its performance. Guess I'll go look at the plastic louver types after all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsElaineous Great Style and Function
Ordered our first one of these about 8 years ago for our house in Georgia. Was very pleased with how quickly and quietly it cleared the bathroom of steam. Two years ago we remodeled our master bath at our home in Houston, and this was the model I chose; we turned a small bathtub into a large walk-in shower and wanted a light and exhaust fan directly above the new shower. Again, very pleased -- same great quality (no rust issues and fan is so quiet that I have left it on all day more than once because I couldn't hear it). Also like the two light levels available -- nightlight and bright -- which is great for choosing a little ambience in the shower. Now I need to replace the old fan over the toilet -- which sounds like a jetliner landing in the front yard -- and there is a standard light fixture right next to it. I have decided to replace both with yet another one of these, and will put one of those metal oops plates over the opening for the old light.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Benny Rusted & stopped working after a year.
Purchased for its pleasing design/price. However, after just under a year the Unit was badly rusted, and shortly there after the fan just stopped working. May look nice, but it's extremely poor quality. I don't recommend this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by efuller Rusting after 1 year of install...
Inferior product construction....wrong materials (steel) used in a damp environment. The nickel plating is probably so thin that the moisture in a typical shower area starts to show rust fairly quickly...save your money and look for a better solution.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KSM1339 Seemed nice at first
At first we loved this fan! We purchased it about 3 years ago. A couple of months ago, I noticed that the screw tops that show on top of the glass are now all rusty. I feel like this shouldn't have happened and now the great look that we had, just looks dingy and old. We are now looking to replace this.
