Take-away: We are *very* happy with the quality and look of this hood, and the price at which we were able to find it. I would definitely make the same purchase again. More detail: Installation was straightforward (I had pre-wired the location and I had our roofer install the actual ducting) but there are a few things worth noting: 1) The Broan hood we purchased came with a corded plug, rather than bare wires. Not a big issue, but I wasn't expecting that; 2) The _minimum_ distance from the bottom of this hood to the electrical connection is approx. 15". That's how tall the fan box is, and I hadn't originally accounted for this; 3) In the instructions, the distances of the mounting screws from the center line (the wall template dimensions) differed from the actual location of the mounting holes in the hood (by approx 1.5" on either side). If you are considering a similar hood, be sure to double-check the dimensions in the instructions with those on the product itself before installing the mounting screws. The fan noise is acceptable to us, but we're not horribly picky about that. If you are, I would recommend shopping around in person and finding the particular brand/model that you'll be happy with before purchasing a hood. We did a little shopping around, and heard many hoods that were MUCH louder than this model ended up being. The shipping was prompt, and everything arrived in one piece.
