Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This Fan is worth paying a little more than the less expensive. It takes out the air so good, when we shower the mirror does not fog up, and after we shower we leave it on for a while to prevent mildew, and It dries the shower walls. Also, it is very quite, sometimes I forget it's on, only because I feel a draft from under the door, I remember it's on. April 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Panasonic Exhaust Fan This is a nice product. Performance: Very quiet. This was a concern for us, and the fan more than met our requirements. Air flow. The fan is rated at 150 CFM. I have no way to measure this, but it does not seem as storng as I thought a 150 CFM fan would be. I am glad that I did not settle for less. We are using it in a 5'x8' bathroom, and it does not seem to be too strong for the small room as some tables suggested it might be. Installation: Tricky. The fan will not fit through the ceiling hole as a unit. The duct and electrical box have to be removed and install first with the main fan unit installed second. I was able to access the box from above through the attic. Without access from above, this would be very hard to do. Overall: Great fan. November 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet and really moves the air. We have a large master bath with a high ceiling. The old fan was both loud and unable to remove the moisture from the air -- leaving towels damp and causing mold/mildew. The new fan is quiet and can really move the air. The 6" to 4" inch duct adapter did not come with the fan. We had to purchase it separately. March 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well worth the investment This fan is very quiet when used with 6" duct. I installed it with a reducing collar to reuse the 4" duct and it was still very quiet. I replaced the duct and vent cap with 6" and now it is really quiet. April 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Fam it is nice and quiet, large and functional finally. The last one we had just made alot of noise and still all the condensation remained on the mirror & walls. This cleans it all up quickly October 29, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Long Term Review Bought this fan for a 5x8 bathroom in a humid climate (Pacific Northwest rain forest) ten years ago. It finally died yesterday. Fan was very quiet, and moved enough air to prevent condensation on the bathroom mirror. Previous fan was a standard contractor-installed generic model that was noisy and ineffective (70 cfm). Will probably replace the recently departed fan with another Panasonic. August 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product It's not hard to install even if you don't have acces from above. Just make sure the fan will fit in your ceiling. Good luck Anzor January 27, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by not so quite After reading all the reviews, I decided I was going to spend the $200+ dollars for this fan, because after having Nutone's and other brands of fans thru the years, I wanted a fan that would really perform. The Fan was install by a license electrician, the duct work was done by the spec's with 6" duct to 6" vent to the outside. I don't know about the other reviewers, but this fan is certainly not that quiet for a $200+ fan, and it for sure does not pull that much air from the room, as others have said, just rip up some toilet paper into strips and hold it to the grill and it barely sucks it up. I guess you could say this fan doesn't suck. NOT!! For over $200 I was expecting a great fan from Panasonic, I have other products from them and I think their products are great !! Sorry this doesn't make the grade. August 3, 2014
