It's hard to write a review with only one "overall rating" number because, while the hood itself seems very nice, I'm incredibly disappointed with it. I went to Best Buy and the appliance specialist informed me that the range I was looking at could auto-sync (in Samsung-speak, "pair") with this range hood so that it can automatically turn on whenever a burner is on. This feature is what sold me on purchasing an over-thousand dollar hood rather than something a third the price. I even did an online chat with Samsung to confirm that the Wi-fi enabled range I intended to purchase was compatible and they indicated that "any range is compatible" to sync in this way. WRONG. I couldn't figure out how to get it to pair and had to contact Samsung support again, who informed me there are exactly 3 Samsung cooking devices compatible with this range hood, and I quote:
"The Cooktops which can be connected to the Hood (NK30K7000WS) via Bluetooth are- NA30K7750TG, NZ30K7570RG and NZ30K7880UG."
There are no ranges that are compatible with this hood, only built-in cooktops. Had I known this, I would've selected a cooktop and separate oven for my kitchen remodel. As is, the cabinets are already installed, the granite is already cut and installed ... it's too late for me for that kind of design change.
Without having one of these 3 cooktop paired with this hood, according to Samsung support, you cannot use remote control/monitoring features of this hood as advertised on their website or the BestBuy website.
As for the operation and use of this hood, it does seem to have good suction, though it isn't exactly quiet. This is probably to be expected of a model that moves as much air as this model claims (I haven't personally measured) and where the vent system is installed in the living space rather than an attic or other non-living space.
So if you know this in advance and proceed anyway, you'll probably be pleased.
