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.

I am not happy with my purchase. Home Depo did fine easy to order and delivered fast and on time
My issue is with Nutone who kept the same
Model number and changed the internal motor. I needed this unit to replace and existing fan with the exact same part number. But this fan is not the same and will not work for me. Would have been nice for Nutone to change its part number when they changed the fan

This fan creates enough noise that you can be certain it is on, but is quiet enough that you can't hear it with the water running. The printed instructions are written for installation in new construction, but I made it work as a retrofit (installed from attic). I purchased this item 40% off from Home Depot, so it was a great deal. I installed it with a digital timer switch so I can leave it running for 30 minutes after my shower to maximize exhaustion of moisture. I wouldn't do this with my old fan because it was so loud I couldn't stand to let it run. I'm very happy with this purchase.

I bought this to replace a few year old NuTone fan which had gotten really loud as the bearings died out. I can't really comment on how this fan compares to the old one when it was new because it was installed prior to us living here. But I can say this fan is way quieter and way more effective than the old one was when we bought our house. It is very very quiet, can barely hear it when the water is not running and can't hear it at all when the water is running. It does an excellent job of pulling the steam out of the bathroom too, much better than the old one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LSLLC A Really Quiet Replacement Fan
We purchased this fan to replaced an very noisy older fan in our second bath. The installation was somewhat difficult as a retrofit as this fan is designed purely for installation in new construction. Some of the problems that were encountered were that the footprint of this fan was larger that the existing, so the ceiling opening had to be expanded. This fans electrical connection junction box was on the opposite side of from the old fan which required that the feed cable be extended to reach. The ceiling joist mounting system is engineered for the installer to have open access to the mounting area, so be prepared to devise an alternate mounting solution if you can't reach the joists due to the ceiling being already installed.The exhaust port is 4" which is larger than the 3" port on the old fan, so it required a new exhaust duct to be installed. Because of these issues the installation took longer than anticipated, but all the problems were overcome and the end result was worth the effort. The jet engine-like noise of the old fan has now been replaced by a barely audible whisper that moves the same amount of air at less operating cost.
