Rated 4 out of 5Â by Alreadytaken Pretty good for the price
Took me 10 mins to screw it to the wall then a further hour to get the chimney to fit reasonably.
NO place for the mains cable to be routed unless you were taking it all the way up the chimney or straight back into the wall.
Unit does not come with activated carbon filters for use without venting, and I notice the ones sold here are on stock clearance so I'm guessing I will have to source them elsewhere shortly.
Has a good amount of updraught especially on full power, but is rather noisy on this setting.
The light could be better, as it's a bit dim, but does seem to do the job.
An extractor this size for this money, even with the above caveats, is a great deal. Would not hesitate to recommend.

It looks good, works well but can be noisy, especially on the higher fan settings. Fits onto the wall with just two fixings which come through key hole slots in the back so nice and easy to fix in place. I used hex head screws on mine as the fan mechanism does get in the way of a screw driver when trying to fix with normal screws.

Next day delivery great. The hood is lightweight, attractive and should have been straight forward to fix. However, the collar supplied was not fit for purpose. The bag with that and other bits had been wrapped so tightly, that the brittle plastic was broken and couldn't be used. I ended up using mastic to fix a round reducer to the top to fix to the Manrose cooker hood kit.
The other problem I had was fitting the chimney which comes in two parts to reach most ceilings. One part was too long and the pre-drilled one was too short. It was probably my DIY skills that were lacking and I didn't want a join line on the chimney. This was the most frustrating element for me (more so than the collar). However, the client (aka the wife) is pleased with the result.
What would improve my rating - a better collar made of better plastic that can link direct to the cooker hood duct kit and a paper template for marking the wall prior to fitting. It has only been operational for two days but is quieter than the previous hood. As other reviewers have said the light isn't great. But that said, I'd recommend this product.
