Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rico8 Waste of money
After reading all of the reviews we decided to buy this fan. We figured that even if it was louder than it says it is, it had to be better than what we have now. Oh how wrong we were. We have the builder grade fan that is loud and hardly clears a powder room. After installing this fan (a little time consuming, but not difficult) it was a great disappointment to turn it on and hear how loud it was. Not only is it loud, but it barely holds a facial tissue to the vent. I had to push the tissue up to the vent and flatten it to the vent before it would hold. For the size of the fan, I would have expected it to suck the tissue right from my hand. This was a waste of money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Peter76 Good, but a bit louder than expected
Really good fan, is just a bit louder than expected. And one drawback is that it doesn't have an integrated humidity sensor, but you can't expect that for this price. Therefore, I would suggest to everyone not to hook it up to a normal on/off switch, but hook it up to a timer that lets it run for about 15 to 20 mins, since although the moisture might be gone from the mirror and windows, it is still enough moisture in the air to create mold problems. So just an advice in general, which goes for all fans. The fan here does do a great job and a fan above 100cfm is always a good choice for a medium sized bathroom.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Soggymoo Good for new construction.
This fan gave me problems trying to install it as a replacement fan for an older NUTONE. It's designed for new construction, It could not be installed from bottom up, this meant making the hole larger than it needed to be so that I cloud slide it down from the attic to the ceiling.Than repairing the ceiling, don't know if it was worth it, especially since I notice it's $25 cheaper than I paid for it. The fan is very quiet and pulls all the moisture out, no more moisture on walls. This would of been a 5 star if it would be designed for retrofit and not new installation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by deide Exactly what I wanted
I decided to write a review after researching comments for a friend when I recommended this fan. I was also disappointed when I installed it and it was noisy and not alot of air flow but ... it was not the fan - it was my error. The vent duct to the outside (no part of this fan) was plugged at the screen which exists out the house. That issue of being plugged, caused turbulance at the fan itself. I am astonished now at how quiet, and the air flow is out of this world. As another review commented, I too can feel it pull air under the door and out through the fan. No fog what-so-ever on the window or mirrors, now that I removed the blockage in the vent duct. No problem with the fan at all. Thank You Nutone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handy1 easy install, great ventilation
This unit was a replacement for a much older exhaust fan, so lighting wasn't an issue. The unit installed easily with few alterations required, the plastic grill is easy to remove for cleaning and makes the unit almost invisible. When the fan is running it does a remarkable job of removing moisture form the shower area, this had been a serious issue with the old unit. I am very pleased with my purchase and have already replace another exhaust fan in our other bathroom only that unit is lighted. Over all a great choice for an exhaust fan that needs to move a lot of moisture laden air from any location.
