An Outstanding PurchaseThis Broan Model QP 242 is very quiet, efficient and certainly an upgrade to anyone's kitchen. The four halogen lamps provide three intensities resulting in attractive and efficient illumination of the cooking area. The fan is mounted horizontally and is super quiet at 100 cfm and acceptable at 350 cfm
Keep in mind the unit has a height of 7-1/2" and if that is greater than the height of the unit you are replacing, you may have to make some minor adjustments for a perfect fit.
Build.com is an excellent retailer as well. The hood arrived well packed and on time. What more can I say? Oh! yes, the price was right.

Excellent upgrade to our kitchenWow! We recently renovated the kitchen of our new-to-us 1978 home. The old range hood was vented (nice), but old, stained, ugly and almost non-functional - I'm sure it was the original. This hood appeared to have the features we wanted at a reasonable price.
I love it! The three-speed fan covers all cooking needs, and the three stage lighting is SUCH an improvement. The lights are halogen, one on each corner of the hood. Even on this 42" length, the provide plenty of light to the range top.
This range hood can be vented or not (I think you can buy special filters for a non-vented installation). My husband and his DIY buddy did the installation. Their comments: it takes two people, and it was not particularly easy. I had the good sense to be gone during installation. :(
And, on top of the functionality, it is VERY nice looking. I would recommend this range hood to anyone looking for a nice looking and functional upgrade.
