350 CFM 30 Inch Wide Four-Way Convertible Under Cabinet Range Hood with Halogen Lighting from the Evolution 2 Collection
Great fan for the price
My home has a large open kitchen/DR/LR area and cooking smells spread easily. Replaced my old fan with this model. It looks great, is very quiet and extremely effective. You can leave it on low all day as sauce simmers on the stove - you will hardly hear it! It is quieter on the highest speed than my old fan on low speed. The biscuit color is SLIGHTLY darker than my new GE stove in Bisque but it looks fine. The lighting is powerful as well. I will hardly ever use more than the middle of the three lighting levels. I spent a lot of time comparing models, the 360 cfm, quiet operation, sleek look and great lighting were features hard to find in a fan of this price. Installation was easy too.

super range hood
This range hood was the perfect answer to our particular installation demands. We have a window over the range, and this hood was suspended by decorative chain in front of the window. The hood controls are on the front, perfect access for our needs. It is a quiet and motionless hood when operating, so there is no sway or rattle or excessive noise. And being ventless, we are delighted to finally have a range hood that would install in our problematic... and such a nice looking hood, as well as one which does the job it is supposed to do. Don't hesitate to invest in one of these fine range hood. You won't regret it.

worth my expectaions
Works quiet and doing its job pretty well. 4 stars because no mounting bolts for the under cabinet installation and 3 wires instead of cord with plug for connecting to the outlet.

Great Range Hood
Had this hood installed recently and just love it. We vent directly to the outside, so did not have to purchase any charcoal filters. The low and medium fan speeds are quiet, and the high sounds like you would expect it to, but would only use it for things like frying fish, etc. (or when my husband burns the popcorn). Lights are fantastic. I had a great experience with Joel in sales from Venting Direct. I needed the product in a hurry and he called California and made sure it was shipped out asap. Thanks!

Ordered this fan and after installing can't believe how strong and quiet it is. A must for any kitchen.

better than expected
after extensive research and reading other reviews purchased this unit. install was easy. very impressed with volume of air that the range hood moves. i have an very long run to the outside and it handles it better than my older unit. and the way the 4 lights gradually go from low to high is an added plus. i haven't had to use high very often. over all well worth the money.

Very nice product
I replaced an old 30 year old "contractor broan" with this new evolution unit and the installation was simple and a direct replacement. The blower has a lot of power and the 4 lights with different light level settings can really light up the cooking area or give a soft light. We often use the low light setting as an evening light in the kitchen.

Broan Evo 30" hood
Fairly easy installation - a paper pattern for screw placement would have been helpful. Two of the five retention screws need a gooseneck to tighten - no straight-line access. The hood works very well - quiet at low speed, not very loud at high speed. Very efficient evacuation of fumes/smoke/odors. We're very pleased.

Great Range Hood from Broan
The Broan QP230 Evolution range hood I purchased is as nice as I had hoped. The shipment arrived quick and the hood looks great in our newly remodeled kitchen. It was a bit difficult to install because it hangs from four small screws. Aligning everything is tricky. I replaced an old Broan hood that was still working o-k. We decided to update the look of the room with the new stainless hood, which has better lighting and exhaust fan features.

Better than expected!
Was concerned, after reading reviews, that the fan would be very loud. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find it was very quiet, on the low setting. It does a good job removing steam and vapors, even on the low setting. We rarely have to use the higher settings!
Great range hood!!
We love it!!
