Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vertologist Effective ventilation
I installed this in an upstairs ceiling where I could work in the attic. Installation was easy, though the instructions were just for new installation (mine went into a 1920's house). It's quiet, and in our small bathroom (8'x7') it vents the shower steam effectively. It doesn't get 5 stars because it was much deeper than expected, so it wouldn't fit inside the attic floor (my fault really for not recognizing this as an issue). There are "low profile" versions that will do this, but I wanted a 4" exhaust pipe. It looks good (the grill is unobtrusive) and works well and is much quieter than most I've heard.

This product arrived on time which was a must for me. The product seems durable. Installation was easy. I have been using this for about a month now and it is quiet and has good draw through the grate.

This unit is not too bad to install if you have decent attic access, but definitely requires a little DIY skill. The fan goes in easy enough, you just need to cut the opening in the ceiling to the correct size, and a slit on each side for the "fins" that are used to attach the metal fan casing to the actual rafters in the attic. You will need to do a little patch work before painting, but if you are careful, not too bad. The wiring is really easy, just the typical black, white, and green. Should take about an hour under normal circumstances, depending on your DIY skill level. Hope this helps, overall, very quiet and works great. There is a metal "lip" on the fan box Itself, but when the drywall opening is cut right, makes for a clean install.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bowie NuTone QT SERIES VERY QUIET 80 CFM CEILING EXHAUST BATH FAN
Since this was a replacement fan I ended up having to cut off a bottom lip fin to get it installed along the supporting joist. I am not sure this fan comes in a retrofit version but I think the manufacturer (NuTone) should identify which fans are for new construction and which fans are for replacements. Otherwise the installation of the fan went easily. The pipe venting of the fan was a challenge due to the change from 3 inch to 4 inch but that is another story.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RickR Excellent choice for an upgrade.
Bought two of these fans to upgrade the fans that were installed when my home was built seven years ago.
Quiet, sturdy, easy to install and increased air movement to avoid condensation. What more could you ask for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by whatamidoing Quiet is an understatement!
the exhaust fan in our bathroom stopped working so I purchased this unit. it was an identical drop in, but a newer model that is extremely quiet! very easy to install, however instructions that came with unit are light. its not rocket science. I only needed the inside as I removed the motor unit from the sheet metal housing and reinstalled it into current housing.
