I just installed one of these units to replace an older hood. I fully agree with the first review, so I won't repeat it. My installation took about 3 hours. Metal edges are quite sharp so take care handling metal pieces. I ended up using a cardboard template (cut out from container box) to get a precise stencil for the screws. If you work alone like me, you almost need a car jack (sitting on the stove top) and a lot of duct tape to hold the unit in place while attaching it to the cabinet. Be sure to wear goggles during the installation of mounting screws. I had a screw loosen up and fall on my forehead. You really don't need Halogen light bulbs, but they look better. The manufacturer should set the light sockets deeper inside so the incandescent bulbs don't stick out.
