One of the comments in previous reviews was that the SS metal was pretty thin. It is, but this is no problem once installed. The lighter weight makes it easier to install. You do have to buy two halogen bulbs separately for this fixture and they cost about $8 each, but they give excellent light down on the range where you need it, and the color illumination is good. Two lamps use 100 watts of power, not excessive for the light supplied. The light switch has a half power light dimmer which works well to both limit the power used, and substantially extend the bulb life. The blower is of the fan type, not squirrel cage, but it is large and moves air adequately. It is not too loud either. Filters are large, easy to install and remove, and can be washed in the dish washer. Over all, this is a very good product.
