This is a great vent with 600+ CFM of suction power, which was what I was looking for when buying a range hood, I needed that power. CFM means the cubic air per minute that the ventilation is able to suction up. In our household, we cool a lot of Chinese food, and what that entails is a whole lot of greasy high-heat cooking. The halogen lamp did not come with the hood, so we had to buy that from Home Depot (make sure you look for them in the appliance section of lighting). The reason I gave this product a 4 star instead of a 5 is because of the grease catching panel on the top of the range hood isn't the best design, and that vent panel is a bi*ch to clean. Sometimes it builds up rather quickly (maybe because we cook a lot of stir-fries and what not). But I wish it had a better solution to prevent the grease from building up and dripping down onto the cooktop, and also the panel isn't such a pain in the butt to remove and can be easier cleaned. Overall, if you do not do a lot of greasy cooking, this is the best bang for your buck. This exact same model is being sold at Home Depot for $$$. Overstock has the best price on the internet, and this is a great POWERFUL range hood. I do love the fact that I have 2 controls for lighting (high and low), and another knob for the scale of power of suction for the hood.

This is a great price for a nice looking hood. It adds to the look of our remodeled kitchen. We're very happy with it. The only slight issue we have is that on the highest setting, it's very loud. On the lower settings it's fine.

We replaced our over the stove microwave with this hood. It is a great value, and has a professional appearance. Washable filter/trays, and the 600 CFM motor are great for the family that cooks a lot at home. If you are accustomed to and over the stove microwave or an economy hood, you won't be disappointed.
Purchased to replacement microwave. Fast delivery. Hood was easy to install. Very attractive and professional looking. Sturdy looking filters. I grill on the stovetop and this hood pulls the smoke out nicely. My duct is less than two feet with one 90 degree turn so it has a short run which doesn't decrease CFM as much as a longer run would. Great function for the price.
We did our research and the hood was exactly what we wanted and it looks great; however, the hood that overstock sent us didn't work. We are mailing it back tomorrow and hopefully the return process goes smoothly, but that doesn't get us back the money we paid for someone to install a faulty hood. According to our electrician, the motor in the hood was broken. So if you are on the fence about buying from a product like this from the internet, just a head's up on my experience.
