My partner and I bought a new house last year which came with one of these units pre-installed, along with a Hotpoint range cooker.
Overall, I have been nothing but impressed by this unit. There are 3 different spped functions which are easily controlled using the buttons on top of the main hood. There is also an in-built light, which is also very handy.
On the underside of the hood there are 2 filters, which are very easy to clean. These simply unclick, can be placed in the dishwasher as they are, and then be replaced once cleaned and dried. This is a much better way to do this than some other hoods I have come across.
The main hood sections are stainless steel, which makes it very easy to clean, which is very handy for the wife!
In terms of the actual functioning ability of this unit, I have never had any reason to complain - it will easily extract huge amounts of steam without too much effort.
I can't comment on how good it is in terms of value for money as ours came with the house, but overall I am very impressed by it.
