900 CFM 30 Inch Wide Stainless Steel Wall Mounted Range Hood with Halogen Lighting from the 218 Collection
3 months in and still going after 50 hours of use. It is everything that is described. Timer works nicely, different speed levels are helpful when you don't want a super loud vent going, and lights can be set to 3 different brightness. I viewed my exhaust vent on the roof when I set the vent level at the lowest and it was still strong enough to open the vent to blow out air. The stainless steel finish is different from Samsung appliance finishes, but you won't be able to notice since the vent is not directly next to the stove. The lights are a warm yellow color. Which didn't match my warm LED cabiniet lights, but I'm assuming I'll be able to change the halogen bulbs in the future to match my cabinet lights. One thing to note, my floor to ceiling height is 8 feet tall. I did have to cut one of the rectangular vent ducts so I could get the ducts to fit with the pre-drilled holes. That was due to me adding the 3 inch box above the vent. Otherwise it would have fitted nicely. Venting Direct shipped the item to me in a timely manner and the box was in superb condition (no damages). I would recommend this website to anyone.

Excellent product, Excellent Service
Cavalier Range hood has truly brought our 1948 knotty pine kitchen into the 21st century. The stainless steel wall mounted unit is as beautiful as functional. The original kit contained everything needed to vent through the roof. The power is more than adequate to keep the air clear even during the range cleaning cycle. I mostly use the first three speeds for their efficiency and quietness. Thank you.

We love our new fan, from all the others i have looked at this gives much more CFM's than equally priced ones. It looks great and was quieter than we expected. We do have one problem with installation,
we needed to use the extension on the stack and it does not fit properly, we have 8' ceilings and we only need an add'l 4 to 6" to reach the ceiling. We are going to have to notch out some of the flange on each side so it fits snug at the hood seam (it slightly protrudes). A seamless stack would look a lot nicer. The lights and filters are nice also. This fan would fit any decor. We love it and would defineatly recommend it to anyone.

Excellent Hood - excellent price
The fit, finish and performance of this hood is excellent. The 6 speed blower covers all needs. Level 6 extracts virtually all smoke and fumes generated when we sear fish using very hi heat while level 2 (very quiet) will remove all steam rising from a gently simmering pot. To find a 30 inch wall hood with 900 cfm (at level 6) of air movement at $445 is unheard of. Our last home had a 33 inch island hood by a prominent US manufacturer that also had a 900 cfm rating but was 5 times the price. The 2 halogen lights are adjustable to 4 levels of brightness and are adequate for any need.

Beyond my best hope!
Gorgeous fan with great air moving capacity. The sleek style completed the update of our kitchen and has vastly improved our venting system. We rarely use it at settings higher than "2" of the 6 available. Quiet, a pleasure to work around. Thanks for all the customer support and for making this a very pleasant shopping/working experience. I'll be back in the future.

This is a great working hood, been running it for about two years, at least one meal daily, no problems at all, the filters are a little hard to clean, but they lasted till now and are still in great shape, instalation was smooth and easy.

Such a great value! It is beautiful, quiet and seems to work well. I have to say that we installed it in our summer home, then left for our winter place so we will not really get to use it until next spring.

This hood looks great !!! The price was competitive. Bought the extension kit to pipe the exhaust to the roof. Plan to add backslash all the way to the top of the cabinet. Great buy...

Cavaliere-Euro SV218B2-30 Review
I received the product from venting direct. And it sat in its box until the area was ready to install about 2 months later. It was exactly what we were looking for and it matches our kitchen perfectly.
About 3 weeks after install, the lcd screen went out. I called vending direct and they contact the manufacturer for me. I had a new lcd screen within 5 days.
The product itself is great even though I've only used it for about 2 months. I feel I've made a good choice from a good company.
I'll send another review after the year is up.
