Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RehabAddict Good fan
Fan is quiet and works great. Very satisfied with purchase price and quality. Some difficulty with install because exhaust was on opposite side as old unit but overall product was good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HD1000 Heavy Duty and Works well
This fan is small (i.e., 8" and fits into tight joice spacing) and provides good suction and adequate light. It takes a normal A19 incandescent/halogen/LED bulb easily found at local hardware stores. It is not a special order bulb. Performs as advertised. Compared to our original builder installed fan this unit is not noisy. The reviewers complainng about it being loud need to understand the stated rating(2.5 sones). This equals noise (i.e., 2.5 times nosier than a 1). If you want an ultra quiet unit pay more and buy one with a <1 sone rating.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by captainwisch exhaust fan
This fan works well. The instructions were easy to follow. Installation took about and hour or so. This fan is relatively quiet for its cfm rating. It does the job. I would purchase this product again and recommend it. This is the second time purchasing this product. The first time was for our first floor bathroom and this one is for our 2nd floor bathroom. The only additional part I had to purchase which wasn't included is a wire clamp nut that screws into the wiring plate on back of the unit to keep the wire from chaffing on the side of the hole for the wire to enter the unit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ABCDconsumer Nutone Heavy Duty 80 CFM not for shower applications
80 CFM is not enough flow to deal with steam from a single shower. It will work fine for a powder room where only odor is the concern.

powerful motor gives us the CFM we wanted, yet whisper quiet when it's running.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by disgusted worst thing I ever bought online
Nutone HD80LNT is not what it claims to be. Way too noisy. Definitely louder than the 2.5 sones rating. To say it sounds like a freight train is just a tiny bit of exaggeration. The Nutone people told me to buy rubble pads to muffle the noise. For brand new vents, what a joke.
I'd love to return both units but the cost to have them installed and taken down are more than two to three times the cost of both vents. I am stuck.
I would suggest HomeDepot not to sell this model online anymore.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Powerful, but loud
This is a powerful fan moving air readily in my 5x8 bathroom. No more steaming mirror! However, it is quite loud and mounting was awkward in an existing bathroom. Additional cross bracketing hardware would be a great install option, especially at this price point. I am happy with the fan but it gets an average rating because it was expensive for a loud fan with difficult install.
