900 CFM 30 Inch Wide Stainless Steel Under Cabinet Range Hood with Halogen Lighting from the AirPRO Collection
Good Idea ruined by terrible workmanship
Good Idea ruined by absolutely terrible workmanship. The Range Hood arrived with parts loosely inside. Both of the fan motors were loose and out of eight screws only one was still hanging loosely in plase and attached to the framing. Metal parts are a bit banged but on the back side.
I located most of the screws from the packaging, but had to find couple extra ones from my screw collections. I corrected the placement of the washers differently than the one "example" and gradually got it back together. finally tested and found it to be very powerfull, but a bit out of balance, small adjustments ... and it works now!

Works Great/ Needs a professional to install
Works great, no more fumes or cooking odurs in the house. Only complaint is that it is a pain to install and definitely needs a professional. One of the fan cover screws was loose when we opened the box and fell out and could not find it. First time we switched on the fan there was a loud rattling noise due to the lost screw. We had to find a replacement and getting it in took about an hour as the location was inaccessible.
Anyways works great now

had to return the first unit, one of the fan vibrates at lower speed. Venting direct was awesome, I got full refund. the installation instruction is basically a joke, it's close to impossible to stick powertool under the vent since the motor can not be taken off, so I had to figure out my own way of mounting under my cabinate. enough about the bad things. at least the second unit works great! love the look and feel, it's not as noisey as I anticipated at speed 4.

Good size/power ratio
I am impressed by the fine controls and the finishings. This is the thinnest yet the most powerful range hood I was able to find online and am happy with my choice. Even at maximim fan speed (F4) I am able to stand in front of it and carry on a conversation at normal voice volume. The double engine and double blower makes it quite powerful yet reasonably silent when compared with regular propeller fans. One little surprise was the included remote control.

I got this product 2 1/2 months ago. Always wanted. But it looks much better. It gives my kitchen a new (professional) look. It had a little problem with the display, but technical support was there to help me with problem, they shipped the new part and I was able to replace it myself. Very satisfy with the product and technical support.

We are finishing up an extensive remodel and purchasing this vent hood from this company was THE easiest of all the many purchases I"ve had to make. We haven't used the vent yet but I have already used the same vent at my daughter's house, which is why I bought it. It's fabulous! Quiet, powerful and very good looking. Looks like it cost at least $1,000.00 more . Delivery was so fast we had to store it until time to install.

great vent and great service
We are delighted with the range hood. When you use the vent while cooking, you cannot smell what is cooking unless you go outside. The vent is noisier than I expected but you can carry on conversations in the kitchen with no difficulty. We had to return the first range hood (one fan didn't work), but the return was smooth and easy.

Inexpensive for Commerical grade product
My husband and I installed this vent ourselves on our DIY project kitchen renovation. It works and looks like an expensive commercial line range hood. Although the zone level is not quite like the high end Pro’s a bit loud on High. The baffle filter was an easy job to clean.

The installation was troublesome which took two people. You'd better measure and drill first and then tight it.
After the installation it has worked great. Most of the time, I only need to set it at 2nd level and not smoke is ever smelled outside my kitchen.

Lots if power for the price.....nice features, especially the heat sensor and dimmable lights........beautiful finish, heavy and well made....a little cumbersome to install though, will need 2 strong men. Very satisfied and highly recommend this fan!
