This range hood replaced a lower-power, cheaper Broan hood. Basically it does a much better job of exhausting fumes and vapors than the previous hood. Noise level is also OK, though a bit higher than the other one. It's also not quite powerful enough for my cooking purposes. I have no great need for some features--don't need a clock with one on the range below it and one on the countertop microwave next to it. I doubt I will make much use of the timer. Overall, I'm pretty well satisfied with it.
After researching a number of hoods, we were pleased to find this AKDY model that looks just right in our farmhouse kitchen. It was simple to install and vents very effectively above a 6 burner gas range.
