Review by Albert (on 7/1/2015)
a 48" vent is surprisingly hard to find without going custom or commercial. I was a little concerned about the ability of this vent as it is 48" wide and still only uses a 6" duct.
The fan is a little noisy on the highest setting, but i don't imagine us using it at that setting often, the 4 settings give a lot of flexibility vs the simple on/off.
LED lights are very bright. i like that on the 48" they are along the front edge instead of the sides.
the brushed finish is not quite the same color of many of our other steel appliances, not sure why but it is not different enough that you even notice (unless you are OCD like me).
be sure to differentiate between the wall mount (-W) and ceiling mount (-C) when ordering.
I prefer the baffle vents to the dropin filters. There is no cost to simple maintenance and cleaning vs buying filters. however, be aware that you must, MUST clean the baffles and grease tray regularly in order to provide proper airflow and draining from the filters.
