In shopping for an island range hood I made the rounds to our local home stores and appliance shops where the inventory was expensive and light. Each only had one or two to choose from. I admit, I took a chance when ordering this from Overstock as this was one of my first purchases during a home remodel. Of course the remodel took longer than expected so this range hood sat for a few months before I could review it. We finally moved back in and are now using our range hood. It really makes the kitchen, our kitchen is a rustic/modern look - slate backsplash, light wood shaker cabinets and this just ties it all together. This is a powerhouse. One thing I was worried about was noise level of the fan - this has 6 levels, 1-3 are barely noticeable, buy the time you get to 6 becomes pretty loud but no louder than the old range hood I had above my stove. I think it's a pipedream for anyone to expect silence on an appliance like this. This works really well, I have fried foods a few times and it really dispenses the vapors pretty quickly. The lights are perfect task lighting for above the stove. I need to clean the glass daily but it doesn't take more than 2 minutes. This price was unbeatable - especially for the quality and the look. Another thumbs up to Overstock. I had our contractor install it, so I cannot comment on install.
