Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BikerDan Quiet and moves the air. No regrets.
I bought two of these for a remodel of the shower in the bedroom and a guest bathroom. I selected this model over the QTREN110 remodel version because this model is 1 sone quieter. I assume most of that quiet is due to the 6" ducting.
With a little modification to the metal cabinet, both installations went fairly easily.
PERFORMANCE: Very quiet. My flooring contractor, commenting on how quiet these were, asked where I got 'em, so I assume he was impressed.
Definitely able to move the air. I tried to overload the fan in the bedroom shower by turning on both showers at their highest temperature and flow. After ~5 minutes, I still didn’t see signs of steam escaping across the room to the mirrored wardrobes. They fog up in about 30 seconds without the fan.
Installations included Pass & Seymour RT1WCCV4 timers, which I also highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bsquared Excellent and quiet bath exhaust fan
I installed 2 of the model QTXEN110, 110 CFM Ventilation Fans. One fan was a replacement in a 100 sq ft bathroom and the QTXEN110 is much quieter than its predecessor. The other was a new installation in a 50 sq ft bathroom. The fans were easy to install, but I had access above from the attic for both installations. The 6" duct helps keep this fan quieter than models using a 4" duct. The main features are simply the fan exchanges the air and clears the moisture, and it is quiet. I highly recommend Nutone fans, and for the size and features I need, this fan is excellent..

I bought this fan for a small bathroom with poor ventilation. It works well. With the fan on, the room does not steam up after showers. It is also quiet. I recommend putting the fan on a timer switch, otherwise it is so quiet one might forget to turn it off.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy Much better than the old fan (80 CFM and 2.0 sones)
What a difference. No steam on the bathroom mirror - even after a shower. Not as whisper quiet as anticipated but a lot quieter than the previous builder's grade. Install took about 2 hours - fortunately had full access to attic to disconnect old one and reconnect new brackets and exhaust vent. Need 2 people to install. Had to cut about 2-3 inches of the ceiling drywall out to fit. So far so good. Unable to get same model for first floor bathroom b/c of no access between ceiling and 2nd floor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mseconst Nutone QTXEN110 Bath Fan
Basically a QTRN 110 with a quieter operation. I love the QTRN 110 but some find it a bit too noisy. This fan at 0.7 sones is basically twice as quiet as the QTRN 110 at 1.5 sones. Both move the air adequately. So if you want very quiet and are willing to spend a little more, this is the fan for you. I like to vent these as short and directly as possible using smooth wall ridgid ducting for optimum air movement via minimum resistance.

I wanted an exhaust fan that did one thing. This unit although bigger than I thought it would be does a wonderful job. I do know that is on but it's only a gentle whisper of a noise. It is very quick to provide it's need so it's not on long. I tell everyone buy a quality exhaust fan it's worth the money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Colorado Highly recommend
I was stunned by how quiet this fan is!
And the six-inch duct keeps the bathroom mirror clear, too!
Can't give 5 stars because the hole I had to cut to get the box into (replacing underpowered unit) had to be cut slightly larger than the grill that covers it. It was quick to finish and paint, but it wasn't as easy as it might have been.
Still, highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by whisperquiet Great product
Got 4 for all three bathrooms and the laundry room. Replaced the old fans that were making so much noise that you could hear them with the doors closed. These fans are SO quiet! Installation was not easy because it was bigger than the older fans, but my contractor was able to finish all four in a span of 1 week. Next time, I would probably have this installed when I remodel the house before moving in.
