This exhaust fan exhausted my patience. Bought it for a powder room situated between the kitchen and living room. No need to clear air heavy with steam. So, the motor, which churns out only 0.5 sones of noise, is whisper quiet. But also it's tiny. Now, driving the fan turbine is a spindle, which came bent. Even though the fan turned during pre-installation tests, after screwing it into the ceiling, it began to fail. And, because it's barely audible, I took it for granted that it was operating perfectly. I tried to make it work. Regardless of how much WD40 I sprayed to ease this fan's burden, this fan's motor couldn't overcome the resistance. So, I got my money back and bought a bigger, better exhaust fan.

I installed this over kitty litter box because it is so quiet. The cats don't even know its there.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ToadiesLB quiet, easy to install
Overall I'm very happy with this purchase. The fan is quiet and installation was relatively painless. The way the unit attaches to the ceiling seems very sturdy - a lot more secure than the cheaper unit this was replacing.
The sound it produces is so minor it would not be an inconvenience to have it wired so that it is always on when the light is on (good for rentals when you want to make sure your tenant always uses the bath fan).
The cover is a bit large, but it only protrudes about an inch or less from the ceiling.

The exhaust fan installed easily in a new installation (remodel). The 50 CFM is slightly undersized for a 5'x8' bathroom; wator vapor still condenses on the mirrors after a long hot shower. But there is significantly less vapor in the air now. This unit is QUIET! As the fan has run over the last few weeks, it has "broken in" and is now quieter than when first installed.

This product appears to be well made. I've only had it installed for a week but no complaints with the quality. The install for this requires significant space so this took more time due to restriction of my ceiling area and the wiring running across the installation area.
