Looks good and excellent at removing steam. Easy to keep clean.
Wouldn't recommend installing on an internal wall as vibration reverberates in the next room even after installing with rubber mounts. The low and medium fan speeds are far too fast in particular the low one. It needs to be much slower perhaps half its present speed. If the low speed was reduced then the vibration reverberation would be also reduced.
Maybe, it depends on what you're after.
