Rated 5 out of 5Â by homebrewer Reasonably quiet attractive fan
We purchased this fan for a bath remodel. As others have said, it cannot be installed without access from above or removing the ceiling around it. Another installation note- this is a higher capacity fan and requires 4" ductwork; many existing systems will have 3". It is fairly simple to install with several openings for electric. Once the ceiling is painted, the fan installs easily into the box, and the light mounts to the fan. It operates at a reasonably quiet noise level. One of the nice things is how it doesn't look like the typical bath fan.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JimB Great fan, great value.
I got this fan because it looked nice and it had a good CFM rating. I was a little concerned about the noise rating, but after I installed it, I was surprised at how quiet it actually was. When the shower is running, it's inaudible.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by twobythelake very nice
It looks great and works great. I would recommend it. It's so nice to have extra light in the bathroom and a fan that works good and isn't so noisy as the old one!
It didn't have the size in the description and it was 9" x 9-1/4 so we had to make the hole larger, but that was pretty simple.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by NotBob Nice looking, installation somewhat challenging
The quality of the primary box structure is "okay" - like most sheet metal items, it can flex and make things difficult to fit (one removes the motor and motor base before installing the box, then must re-install when the box is in the ceiling). The supplied screws used to mount the bracket for the light were, well, rubbish. They stripped before 'biting' in the pre-drilled (but not tapped) holes - I just used sheet metal screws I had on hand.
Installation requires access to the top of the unit - in my case, in the attic amongst the blown-in insulation. If I were doing it over, I would attach wooden tabs around the outside of the box to space it properly in the sheetrock ceiling. Not required, but would have made locating the mounting holes in the rafters much easier.
The fan is quite powerful and not overly noisy. The light kit is nice (other than the screws noted above) and mounts easily. The glass shade "screws" onto pins on the light base - much nice than the setscrew technique.
I would consider this unit when it comes time to replace our other vent fan.
