I purchased this product through my independent appliance store. I purchased the white version.
The product has lots of nifty features, such as theatre lighting, last use memory setting, and a stainless steel under surface. The low profile is also aesthetically pleasing.
Some Broan products have 4 lamps, and I wish this top end product had four lamps as well. I find the back of the range to be somewhat dark, particularly compared to the adjacent cabinet areas with under cabinet lighting (I like plenty of light). I called technical support to determine if I could switch the side lamp holders for a four version unit, but was advised that the products were UL/CSA certified as purchased and should not be retrofitted. Additionally, the internal wiring harness won't support a four lamp version. It is possible to purchase MR16 LED replacement lamps, but their light output is less than the halogen lamps supplied with the unit. A four LED lamp fan would be perfect.
The first two speeds are relatively quite, and the two top end speeds pretty noisy, particularly the top end. Mostly I use it on the lower speeds unless cooking a stir fry. At the top speed, when cooking a stir fry some odours get into the house, but it is minimal. It helps if I shut off the whole house heat recovery ventilator (HRV) when cooking as the HRV tends to draw some of the cooking fumes throughout the house. When cooking a roast in the oven, it is best to use the third highest speed.
Overall I am satisfied with the unit, but for the price would have thought that the fume extraction would have been somewhat more effective.
Yes, I recommend this product.

What are the replacement parts for the the mesh filter?

Per page 14 of the installation manual, 30" width fan replacement filter is SV06265. It is not clear if they are sold individually or in pairs.
