Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mgb2 Great unit for the price
Replaced an old hood on cabinets that came down fairly low over the stove. This unit is much smaller vertically than most hoods, so it works well for that space.
This was a special purchase when I bought it, so the price was excellent, and it looks much more modern in appearance than what it typically found in less expensive hoods.
On the negative side, the top of the unit where it touches the cabinets was slightly warped, leaving an uneven gap. I was able to minimize this with some extra screws, and a bit of caulk made the rest unnoticeable. The photo shows it before caulking.

I recently bought this range hood on-line at Home Depot. Delivery is on-time and I received a call about a day before delivery and also two hours before actually delivery for confirmation someone will be home to receive it. Pretty much a simple range hood with a light switch and two speed fan switch. Blower fan is plastic and suction is not as strong as my old range hood. But it does the job. For steam, the low speed is OK but for actually cooking, you need to switch to the high speed in order to get the air flow going to push the smoke out. Installation is easy for me since it fits the existing drill holes and vent hole I have. One (strong) person usually able to install it, although two is recommended. The installation guideline is a bit confusing but manageable. I would recommend it if you just want to have a simple range hood that doesn't cost you an arm.

My son finally installed this hood range for me and I love it. We tested it with a candle, a pot of boiling water, and frying bacon. We were able to see the candle smoke and steam rise into the filter. When another family member cooked the bacon, it passed the test by the smoke alarm not going off (which used to happen any time we cooked bacon).
As other raters have noted, the unit is not silent, but neither does it make an inordinate amount of noise.
It's a great value!
I'm very pleased with my hood range.

My range worked for 4 days and then the fan blew. I have been on the phone to both the Home Depot and Whirlpool more than 20 times, to no avail. The item is obviously a hunk of junk... BUYER BEWARE!!!

This was a replacement to the range hood that came with the house originally (circa 1991), and had been dented at some point in the past. This range hood replacement fit perfectly, installed easily, and looks wonderful!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JTMCH A great looking hood!
After reading through several reviews I was sold on this hood pretty early on. Personally, though, I found it quite a pain to install!! My husband and I bought this hood to replace a former one that had just seen better days. It had lost most of its suction and was just looking old and out dated so we were ready for an upgrade. This was definitely that. It's a gorgeous hood! We love the look and its suction is top notch.
Like I said, we found it quite difficult to install this hood. We had to buy several parts to make it fit correctly and then ended up it didn't fit flush to our cabinets above it so we're looking for something to fill that gap. We had replaced a very, very old hood that had been in place for many, many years so I was expecting some resistance and issue with a new one. But this one seriously was a headache to install. Once installed however, we have no regrets in buying it. It looks and works great and is not near as loud as our old one was which was a very big deal for us!
