Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by edieppa2 Panasonic Whisperwarm exhaust vent/heater/light/nightlight
"Whisperwarm" certainly is an appropriate name for this product. It can barely be heard. The combination of exhaust fan and heater work perfectly to keep you warm but keep the humidity from the shower fogging up all the mirrors. Works like a charm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GDWLLMW Bright light, low noise fan, and warm heat. Very nice product.
It looks very nice installed and the light puts out a lot of light. The fan starts out at lower speeds and you can't hardly hear it. Once it spins all the way up it's still at a very nice level. The heat kicks right in and is nice and warm.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ST Works well but still not as quiet as I would prefer
I purchased the Panasonic WhisperQUiet fan without heater in the past and hoped that this one would be as wonderfully quiet. It works well but not as quiet as I would like

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NP Excellent product
The installation was fairly easy and the quality of the unit exceeded my expectations. This unit is very quiet and is well worth the money. If you are tired of the noisy, cheaper, contractor specials then try one of these.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by David needs a redesign
Due to the exhaust cone not coming off the fan will not go into a hole that would be covered bye the grill
it needs a sloped back or removable cone to fit in and not need to repair the ceiling

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jon Lives up to the 5 star reviews
I bought this because of other people's 5 star reviews on homedepot.com, and I would say it lives up to my expectations and their reviews. Great functionality, it clears all the steam out of the bathroom instantly, it adds good light, and it also heats up a bathroom pretty quickly. Glad I spent the extra money on this model, without a doubt.
Its big, make sure to measure your space. It fit mine just fine both from a ceiling area and depth. This part of my house was added on in the late 70's if that's any indication of construction type/materials.
The only few constructive criticisms I have are that 1. someone said it took an hour and a half to install. Well I hired a handyman and it took him almost four hours, but maybe that's because he had to run wiring and cut a new hole in the ceiling (previously there hadn't been any bath fan), plus more time to patch and paint the holes. The 2nd constructive criticism I have is about getting the right switch. I'm a huge home automation person (use Insteon), and I couldn't find the right set of wall switches to make this perfect. I wanted a timer for the fan and for the heater, and a simple on/off for the light and I wanted it all in a double gang. Couldn't find something that did both, so did simple on/off switches for them. I didn't want the Panasonic humidity sensor because the bathroom is next to our bedroom and I didn't want it going on/off in the middle of the night. And last thing .. simple as it may be, I should have hooked it up to a separate breaker from our wall outlets, because day 1 my wife tripped the breaker running the fan, the heater, her hair dryer and her hair straightener. (please don't add comments about the high maintenance of my wife, I know, trust me).
I'm gonna get the same thing for another bathroom in our house, without a doubt.

This product totally met for our needs. We purchased two for each of our bathrooms. They are super quiet, whether we are using the exhaust fan or heat. I love the night light feature. My only critiques are that you need to wait a minute or so before the heat comes on and the light is florescent (I prefer incandescent). These are minor issues and would definitely recommend to others.
