No, I do not recommend this product.
Not a lot of difference between this and the $42.99 hood, certainly not worth 2 1/2 times as much. Bought this because I needed a hood immediately for a job and Home Depot was out of the other, cheaper hood.
Needed a recirc type hood, which is what this one is, but Nutone couldn't even throw in a charcoal filter (which is what's needed on hoods used for recirculating exhaust air). The filters have to be bought separately. And Home Depot doesn't stock the charcoal filters, they have to be ordered.
Not a good value for $120, and now I have to chase down a filter, which should have been included in the first place, considering the price.
Will not buy this again.

Did some research on range hoods as it was time to retire my old "entry level" one. This NuTone ACS30WW caught my eye on several levels. It has a dual position light switch so you can have bright when cooking, or low for just kitchen night light. Also, the fan has infinite speed adjustment instead of one or two speeds. And, it's 3-way convertible; rectangle 3" x 10" vented, 7" round vented, or non-vented. If you "non-vent" then you need to buy the charcoal filter instead of the mesh filter it comes with. With the 7" round venting you will need to purchase a separate damper if you want or need one, but it comes with the damper for the rectangular venting.
I am pretty handy, so I tackled this job myself (first time). You should have a helper to do the install as it's awkward otherwise. Instructions are pretty clear and it came with everything you needed (except as noted above). Removal of the old one and installation of the new one was pretty straight forward. For a first timer, it took about 2 ½ hours to remove old and install new. Probably wouldn't have taken that long if I hadn't needed to make some modifications to the mounting area to correct the bad original installation!
It fit perfect and works and looks great. It's not the quietest fan (on full speed) as top of the line range hoods, nor is it the noisiest (like my old one). But you can adjust the fan speed anywhere you want it. It looks great, works great and hopefully will last for years come. And the price was great for a range hood with these features.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
Cons: really...can't find any cons!

Good product for the budget minded. No bells and whistles, but it covers the basics: vent and light.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install

Easy to install. ventilates great!!! Can't understand why Nutone didn't invest another 25 cents & had a power on/off light. It is very easy to leave the fan running at lower speed & not Know it. I'am going to invest 50 cents & put mu own fan power light in.
Pros: Easy to Install, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight
Cons: no fan power indicator light
