Everything you would expect
I have had it in operation for about 6 months now. It is more than I expected. Super quiet and it really sucks out all fumes and odors. I have not had to clean it yet, but it is so accessible and easy. Ditto what everyone else has already commented. It did take 3 adults to install it - it is heavy. If you are thinking of something else, don't, get this.

Do I really need to say more. Oh, yeah, if you are 6 feet tall, you may risk banging your head.

Very pleased with the product
Exhaust fan is quiet and does the job extremely well, however the lights could be brighter.

Better than expected
Just bought this hood for the power and quiet operation. Totally surprised on how quiet it is on the lowest setting at 380cfm! I can't hear it even if standing next to it. the next lowest setting is also super quiet. my fridge makes more noise than this. super design and great value. good job Kobe!

Very happy with purchase
This was my first purchase from ventingdirect.com. The price was good and the item arrived on time in excellent condition. The hood is quieter than the basic hood that it replaced, even at the highest exhaust level.
1. High quality build, made in Japan.
2. Good design overall.
3. Sharp looking.
4. Very quiet. It is hard to hear the fan at lower levels.
5. High air volume exhaust capability.
1. Somewhat cryptic installation instructions - I got this professionally installed and even the installers were a bit confused at times. FYI -ihe installers punched out the holes unlike some of the people here who drilled them.
2. You need to provide your own wood screws.
3. The controls are non-intuitive and take some getting used to.
However, if I were starting over I would definitely buy again. Despite the cons I would give it 5 stars.
I would also definitely buy again from ventingdirect.com and the affiliated websites - faucetdirect.com, lightingdirect.com etc.

very good purchase
I am very happy with this product and ventingdirect.com
My husband and my son together installed the product. It was not very easy because they had to do a little cutting of the cabinet above to make it fit in place. The fan that was there had very small opening. We cook almost everyday with lot of spices including fish. My house doesn't smell anymore as it used to with our old fan. It does take the smell out of the room.

Quiet and Powerful
Quiet and Powerful is what I look for in a hood. If it isn't quiet, Under 1 sone for everyday cooking, why install it? I want to be able to have a conversation while I cook or watch the news or listen to music and I don't want a hood that won't let me do that. The Kobe line is perfect for low sones and high CFMs. Even at 800 CFMs it is not too bad. I can grill fish on the stove top and still hear the Little Mermaid with the kids. Great hood!
