220 CFM 30 Inch Wide Under Cabinet Range Hood with Dual Halogen Lighting from the Allure I Collection
Delivery was good, and the installation went well.
My problem is the lights. The design of the the hood calls for 75W halogens. I have been to Lowes and they did not have any in stock. The hologens they did have were very expensive.
The lights are a big part of any range hood. Had I known the difficulty in finding these bulbs, and their cost, I would have purchased another model. I will not be returning the unit. I will find the blubs and pay the cost.

Better Choice than F4030
This is a great hood! It is quiet, enclosed, and looks really niceI Originally, we bought the Broan model F4030 in stainless as we upgraded our appliances. We were replacing an old Broan Allure model and tried to save a little money with the lowest price model. The F4030 model was very loud, looked much cheaper (you can see the "workings" under the hood) and the light was also cheap. For a little more, we ended up switching to this Allure 1 (Broan QS130) instead. We love it!

I recently ordered a Broan Allure under cabinet Range Hood from Venting Direct.
I am very satisfied with this range hood, for the price it works perfectly. As promised it arrived in perfect condition and on time.

Lights are a Big Problem
The Allure model that I purchased about 4 years ago did not come with Halogen lights. It came with somewhat standard Incandescent lights.
The problem for me is that my unit, purchased on Kalispell MT, came with an oddball light socket that does not take other comparable Appliance type bulbs. When I try to replace a burnt out bulb with standard comparable bulbs, the metal screw in portion of the bulb is not long enough to actually make contact with the socket base, hence the lights don't work.
Have spent many hrs. looking for replacement bulbs with no success. Not even sure what I would order on line from Broan directly. This Allure model is of little value without lights.
