The number 4 spot on this list of range hood reviews is occupied by a 30 inch range hood by AKDY. This range hood looks like a straightforward, simple, but stylish addition to any kitchen. The stainless steel finish goes well with the blue tones of the LED lighting, which gives off a very modern feeling. To be honest, the range hood looks more expensive than it actually is. Out of all the wall mount chimney range hoods in this list, this is definitely one of the most beautiful ones. A great bonus is that the range hood is really light.
As with almost all range hoods, there are some minor flaws. Partly due to the blue tones of these particular LED lights, they seem to come off as somewhat dim. They don’t seem to give off as much light as the LED lights in other range hood models. What doesn’t help either is that they’re located at the back, instead of the (more common) front. Another topic we have to highlight in our range hood reviews is the amount of noise the range hoods produce. The AKDY 30" AZ-63175S seems quite noisy.
Even on the lowest setting, it seems to give off more noise than other range hood models. Speaking of sound, even the LED touch panel control is really loud (smoke alarm intensity) and every touch or command gives off this loud beep. Lastly, the installation is quite tricky. To somewhat counter this flaw, make sure to have at least two extra hands to help with the installation.
If you can overlook these flaws, this range hood is a great choice, especially if you’re looking for a great price/quality ratio.
