Great value for a pro-style hood. Rated 5 by Fudman
  Yes, I recommend this product.
Can't comment on the installation hassles. My contractor put mine in. I do agree with the bulb installation issues. Difficult but not impossible. I used tape to make a small "handle" on the bulb face. I then inserted the bulb into the socket and used the tape to turn the bulb and then removed the tape. But the vent hood is very attractive and performs well. The fan is a bit loud but not overly loud. All in all, a great value.

Brand new kitchen ruined by this poor product. Rated 1 by jake10987

We bought this after online research. We were looking for a quiet blower. It's quiet, but that's because it sucks at sucking. My advice use Broan in bathrooms, not in kitchens.

This hood has a nice "upgraded" pro look and is great for a kitchen remodel but beware of lurking installation issues. Rated 2 by Carol29

The hood looked great after installation, but getting it there was another story. First, the screw holes provided in the top of the unit are way too large. Then the screws that came with it were too short due to an offset on the bottom of our cabinet. Ultimately we had to drill our own holes thru the vent hood body & provide our own screws in order to successfully attach it to the bottom of the cabinet. Once it was installed, we worked off and on for two days trying to get the light bulbs installed. Problem is they're the same diameter as the hole they go thru so once in position, there is no way to grasp the light bulb and turn it into position. We finally gave up and called Broan. They sent a suction cup tool to install the bulbs. That item should have been included to begin with, along with the light bulbs which took two trips to the store to get the correct bulb. There are two different bulbs that look similar to the picture in the manual & their packages do not provide the detailed bulb number as shown in the manual. It would have been so much easier if they had just provided them. All in all, it's probably a good choice for a hood since it has an upgraded "pro" look & fits the standard space; however, the installation is not as easy as it should have been. Be sure you're prepared to deal with the issues.
