We've had the range hood for about a month now. We have a small galley kitchen (9' x 15'), and our top priority was that the range hood eliminate cooking odors from spreading throughout the house (2-story home). It does a really good job at that, but only if you have it on the highest setting. The problem, however, is that the highest setting is seriously loud (the lower settings aren't loud, but they're not effective in eliminating odors). But if you don't mind the noise, then it's a great product. Automatic-off function & lighting are great, filter is easy to remove. It's definitely on the more expensive side, but it gets the job done.
