"As soon as you get it out of the box it is clear that this item is a robust, well made bit of kit. Easy to install with its detachable flanges, I opted for the lower of the two settings because it is for a small ensuite. Once fired up, it is immediately obvious that it is doing its job. Perhaps a little noisier than ideal, it is not too obtrusive. It certainly extracts effectively. The detachable flanges should make it easy to service later on. It does lack a run-on timer, but actually it I so effective that it probably doesn't need one. Don't know about reliability yet, but it seems well made."
"Great extractor for the money. Bought to replace a small inline extractor which never seemed to clear the steam from the bathroom. This has 2 speeds and on the fastest speed is a bit noisier than the one it replaced, however the mirrors no longer steam up and the ceiling is no longer dripping after a bath. Only down side is it is not a timed model so if you wire it to the lights it goes off when the lights go off."
"Bought this to replace a small extractor in my shower room that has no windows, I am very pleased with the performance, I no longer have a wet ceiling and the bathroom mirror do not get steamed up any more."
"So far so good. It moves a lot of air quickly and with no detectable motor noise. It was easy to install though setting the desired fan speed would be much simpler if they fitted a simple switch instead of requiring the installer to reposition the neutral wire. The instructions are a little ambiguous on wiring.Para 2 on wiring on page 1 states "A flexible cord must not be used" while under connections on P2, para 4, the installation cable is specified as "Flex of two conductor wires of minimum section....." These statements are surely contradictory."
"This is essential for Bathrooms which have no outside walls or windows. High extraction rate and reasonably quiet. This model has no timer but works well enough with the pull cord light switch. Mounted in the loft - easy to fit. Mark a bit low on reliability as only just purchased."
"Replacement for extractor fan which failed to clear the bathroom of steam. Just the job -easy to fit, more powerful than the original fan yet much quieter, clears away the steam no matter how long the family stay in the shower.Very pleased."
"I replaced my existing bathroom fan as it didn't really do the job. I have installed this on the higher flow setting and what a difference, the extraction rate is superb and surprisingly quiet, condensation and steam are no longer an issue, I have only rated the reliability as good as I haven't had it long but if its as reliable as other Manrose fans I have installed over the years it will be exceptional. Installation was easy and it performs as good as a 6 inch fan, I would recommend this to anyone who's existing fan doesn't really do the job, this one will."
"I had a celing fan and this was just to noisy as it could be heard all over the house as my down stairs bathroom is in the middle of the house, and have about 4.5m of ducting, the mirror steamed up and the wall had condsation on them, so not much use really but..... I purchased the above fan after reading the reviews and some hessation and WOW so much quiter no more misting up and thats only on the slow speed setting. As other reviews you can hare the air noise being sucked though but its nothing compared to its peformance. Reliability rated at 3 due to only just fitting it, so hard to comment but looks well built and the construction appears to be so much better than these cheap bathroom fans. will be upgrading the other extractor fans in my house now.."
"Previously bought a more expensive fan that was advertised as "ultra-quiet", winner of awards etc etc. The previous fan failed 3 times, each time lasting between 3-8 months before just stopping all together. Got fed up so went for this product, much cheaper, no bells or whistles but as it turns out, this product is just as quiet and cheaper than the previous fan I bought and even has a higher flow rate. Lets just hope this one doesnt also fail, cant tell yet as not been installed for very long. Goes to show the products with the fancy labels and good literature aren't always the better product! (so long as this doesnt fail in the near future that is!)"
"excellent extractor at a good price. relatively quiet in use. Bought this because I specifically did not need a overrun timer so keeps the price down. Choice of 2 speed settings, need to choose one at time of installation. I would always go for the high speed but I must admit at lower speed I could not hear it running at all."
"Bought to replace an in-duct fan of a different make that only lasted 4 months. A fan to clear a bathroom of steam that shorted out due to water/condensation on the circuit board, when it was specifically sold for that purpose! What's that all about. An electrician friend recommended the Manrose model and the reviews looked ok.
Very pleased with the speed of delivery. Email updates on order progress. Ordered at 6.50pm one day and arrived early afternoon the next . Even got a text advising approx delivery time. Came in its own product box rattling round in a bigger box without any protective packing in between, but doesn't seem to have suffered from that.
Fitted and working shortly after. Looks fairly robust and have to say that it was much easier to connect up than the brand x one. Has little idiot labels to show where the respective wires go so no chance of going wrong. Feedback system forced me to enter a value against RELIABILITY, but unfair to comment on really as not been using it for long enough so went for a middle-of-the-road one. No noisy motor; only fan noise from the vent above the shower. I suspend the fan from an attic beam by wires so there is no chance of enhanced noise or vibration in the ceiling, and it also puts a nice slope on the flexi-tube to remove the chance of water lying in dips.
Overall, fairly painless for a first Screwfix purchase so won't hesitate to use them again. As an add on, my electrician friend said their prices are good and I compared against another well known company and he was right."
"We installed the standard model of this fan and it is easy to install and wire in. Very good extraction rate on high setting. Excellent for for bathrooms that could suffer from condensation etc. Customer very happy."
"I have just installed the MF-100 fan. It has 2 speed settings, though only the high speed setting is available if you fit a timer circuit. The motor draws 24W. It is quite a large unit. Installation is simple. The fan is quiet in operation and draws more air through than the old ceiling unit it has replaced. I managed to use the timer circuit from the old fan I took out to keep this unit running for a few minutes after it is turned off. I haven't had it long, so cannot comment about reliability. But so far, I am impressed."
