I have used range hoods from Victory twice, my daughter's new kitchen and our own. Wonderfully made, straight forward design, very powerful. At the lowest setting evacuates better and much more quietly than the big box store ones they replaced on highest setting.
Found Victory online when I was looking for an insert for a professional grade range. Their customer service was excellent and the product is great, exactly what I was looking for. The Star range hood insert is quiet at low speed and effective at moving cooking smells out of the kitchen. Fast shipping too! I would definitely recommend them.
This is a quality unit that performs well. The fan is very loud making conversation in the kitchen difficult while in use. The angle of the lights is towards the back of the range leaving a dark area on the front burners of the stove top, defeats the purpose of the light. Very annoying. I would not have purchased knowing these issues.
Thank you for your feedback, Richard! Much appreciated.
The lights are always angled toward the back to ensure that the back burners receive light as this is generally the darkest area of the stove. Regarding the noise, the unit should allow for regular conversation even on high speed, but especially on the lower speeds. If the noise is high on the lower speeds, please double-check the ducting and outside cap. This unit must be used with 8' ducting (no reducers) and the outside cap must be the same opening. Please ensure that the outside vent cap is not reduced. If you would like assistance with this, please send photos of the installation to email@example.com
