Rated 5 out of 5Â by Island2 Ultrasilent Ventilation Fan Review 2011
We should have installed this product sooner, very quiet fan operation, the heater element is just right for room warming, and the lighting options are perfect for our bathroom.
Immediately noticed that moisture was no longer present on bathroom mirrors, the ultra-quiet operation of the ventilator fan removed our previous "noisy" fan sounds completely.
Overall this was the right product for our home, we installed one in each bathroom, and it was the right choice.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AlohaOregon Super Value with very usable features
Installation - Very easy to install, 2- people will make the job easier.
Power - Make sure you pull in the dedicated 20 amp power for this unit. this will require installing the proper line for the new higher amp power needed to operate this unit
Switch - Don't forget to purchase the speical Nutone 4-function switch, (D77/DW77), it is a MUST. This will make this unit very flexible to use.
Wiring - If you pay attention to the schematic, this will make wiring this unit a snap. HINT: label/tag the wire to make it easier to remember which line will power which function.
Lights - Light bulb uses non-standard pin connectors, otherwise, very usable light source.
Heater - VERY good heater, heats room up very quickly.
Vent - Super quiet fan, almost too quiet, 0.9 sones, (compared to our older unit, 2.5 sones+), This unit moves a lot of air, you can even feel the air being drawn into the bath from under the door. Clears the bath of steam & odors very quickly. This will certainly help minimize any issues with mold.
Recommendation - I would highly recommend this product!!!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Greg Great Product...Installation Not Easy
This is a great product. It looks great. Works exactly as advertised. Quite fan, great heat, nice lighting. The physical installation of the product provides a few challenges. It was larger than the unit it was replacing, so cutting out the ceiling and re-installing to joists was challenging, but not too bad. Product instructions tell you to install a 6 inch exhaust vent line for quiet operation. I used a 6" to 4" adapter and ran it through my existing 4" line with no problems and no increase in noise. My BIGGEST problem with the installation was the re-wiring. The instructions are less than clear. I was replacing an old Nutone heat/fan/light/nitelight unit that was wired to 4 wall switches. NOWHERE IN THE INSTRUCTIONS DID NUTONE TELL YOU THAT THE NEW UNIT MUST BE WIRED TO THE NUTONE 4-FUNCTION WALL SWITCH IN ORDER TO OPERATE. After a number of attempts to wire the unit to the four existing wall switches, I gave up. After a little online research, I discovered that you had to use their 4-Function switch. Once I re-wired it with their switch it worked perfectly. They could have saved me a lot of time, by clearly stating that their 4-Function switch must be used. Overall it's a great high-end product.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JohnB Works well for a great price
A Home Depot recommend electrician installed the exhaust fan and the finished product looks great. I like the light in this unit. The unit a lot quieter than the previous unit. I haven't use the heater that much yet, but it works. I will have a better idea in winter when it is a lot colder.
For some reason the specifications on this unit were better than a similar Nutone model that cost a lot more. Win for me!
Overall I very satisfied with this unit.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Kurzxl Quite and powerful
Installed in place of an old unit that made lots of noise when running. This unit has very good lights, heater is quite and throws the heat all the way down to the floor with 9 foot ceilings. The vent is also very quite. Had to cut a larger hole in the ceiling to make it fit and run new exhaust line, but not a big problem. The only major problem was the damper for the vent. It was defective and had to get another sent. The design is not the best either and I am concerned about it lasting over the long term. It should be stronger.
