Range Hoods - Broan vs. Windster vs. Imperial
I'm looking at the Windster "H" series wall mount stainless/glass range hood. It's available online for $462, shipped. It is very similar to the Broan B5630SS, available from Lowes for $499. I just found the Imperial TW5030PS which is $797 online, also nearly identical to the other two hoods.
I called one on the online sellers of both the Windster and Imperial and asked why I should consider paying nearly $350 additional for the Imperial vs. the Windster. I pointed out that the Windster has a two year warranty while the Imperial only has a one year warranty. The sales person told me "Imperial is one of our higher end brands." I asked what design features make it "higher end?" She had no answer.
So, I'm leaning toward the Windster. Just looking for some feedback from anyone who has experience with these three models before I make a purchase.
