Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lhbill Wonderfully quiet!!
This fan replaced an older, smaller Nutone bath fan/light. The fan is very quiet when running and keeps the bathroom steam-free. The cfl lights are add very nice light and are economic to run. I would buy this fan again!!

Installed for 2 months at posting. This fixture has a good transitional design, quiet, and is very cool bright color - not so attractive as if it were a slightly warmer color for ambiance but that's the trade off and I don't care for the market's too warm color range so I am happy with this tradeoff.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Butyogi Very Quiet, Needs wider cover to seal installation.
This is a very quiet exhaust fan, with well enough lighting. The only drawback is that the cover is too small to seal the installation opening. I only cut a large enough hole in my existing ceiling to install with very little room to maneuver. There is now a gap between the ceiling drywall and the cover which will need a gasket.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gdg7 Great Fan!
A very quiet fan. Easily keeps a 105 sq ft bathroom clear of moisture. Night light is a great feature, but need to run two extra wires for this option. I will purchase another to replace a noisy fan in our second bathroom. Also no need to buy the Nutone 3 in one switch if you use night light, Home Depot has same switch $10.00 cheaper.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by honeydo Good, quiet exhaust fan
Installation best for new construction. With some basic DIY skills and attic access not too difficult. Good looking and quiet fixture. Moves lots of air.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TxFarmer Great upgrade, but requires some planning before installing. And checking for missing parts
I ordered 2 of these, they both list on the web site at Home Depot and clearly in the instructions that (2) GU-24 18W bulbs are included. They were not. First, my local HD immediately provided two off the shelf at no cost (tip of hat to HD). However, not only was it a pain to make a second trip for something that was supposed to be included, who in the world uses GU24 bulbs? They are the pin type bulbs you twist in to install. They are more expensive to replace, also. No idea why they chose that type, it makes no sense.
As for the install, it shows new install only, my previous unit was a completely different size, so it was a messing cutting the ceiling dry wall. However, once I installed it, including properly venting it through the gable wall to the exterior, it is now so quiet we have to double-check we don't leave the house with the fan on. I have a standard 5X10 bathroom (50 sq ft) and have the 110 CFM until. The two bulbs are bright, the fan really draws out the air, it is super quiet.
I did NOT purchase another switch to operate the night light. I simple did not install it. Please note: it INCLUDED the bracket to install it between joists. I purchased a bracket when I purchased the fan, wound up returning it. Definitely a good value unit. Good enough, I purchased a second one to replace in my guest bath.
One dig on Home Depot. At my local HD, there were 3 of these units on the shelf. I would have purchased them, but each unit had been previously opened, it was obvioius they were returns (I like HD's return policy, but) all three units were missing parts, and not just the light bulbs. Look HD, if you are going to allow folks to return stuff, that's great, but don't put it back on the shelf unless you have checked all the parts are there and intact. And consider giving an open box discount, like many retailers do.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Not very powerful and not a replacement fan
I found that this fan doesn't have enough power to hold a piece of tissue paper when turned on. Also, there are no instructions for replacing an existing fan nor is there a cutout/template. The instructions included with this fan are for a new installation. If you plan to use it as a replacement anyway, remember that the longest distance (the 14" span) will mount across the ceiling joists (as opposed to being inline with them), which is important if you are trying to fill a big hole from an existing unit. Also, you can see the wires up in the unit when the light is on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rac7 Bathroom Fan with Light
The fan seems very quiet; you can hardly hear it. I think that it is drawing the air and moisture out of the bathroom.
