Rated 3 out of
hard to install, but works fineFirst, about this hood, the specs are not correct, the width is actually 1/2"" less than 30", so there is a 1/4" gap between the cabinet and the hood on both side. Second, the installation manual is not that detailed, it took sometime for me and my handyman to work it out. Third, be aware of 10" vent duct if you get 1200cfm blower, if the hood is venting out from the back wall, make sure you get enough space to turn and possibly you need 2 90 degree adjustable elbows. During the installation, some of the screws came with the hood were either too tight or too loose, you need to be prepared for that.
After the installation, the hood worked pretty good, I got 1200cfm blower, very powerful, but 900cfm was sufficient for wok cooking, not too loud. And 600cfm is really quite. I can see some oil accumulating on the baffle filters, plan to wash it every week. The lights were in the back of the hood, so it was not that bright in the stove front where most cooking took place. The screws fixing the light sockets were not tight, so the light were shaking as the fan turned on, I planned to find differnt screws to replace the factory ones.
In summary, apart from the difficult manual, unexpected duct work and the gap between the cabinet and hood, I am happy with the hood, it is very efficient to remove the cooking smoke and not too noisy.
