FV-08VKM3 is rated out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Works great but limited life. No other fan is this quiet and has these features. The problem is in the ability to clean dust off the fan. If you do not clean the fan, the CFM sensing will think it needs to run faster. The space between the blades is narrow, maybe 1/8 inch so they can get clogged easily. It's a cage sort of fan. It is a deep, multi-blade unit that can't be cleaned well from below. The reason is that there is little space between each long blade (there are dozens) and dust may not just blow off. Remember that some sticky things may be used such as air freshener and hair spray. The blades are deep and most brushes--even a toothbrush--will not reach the depth needed. Removing the fan for cleaning requires extensive disassembly--first 3 screws to remove the unit from the housing, then many more to get to the plastic fan itself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Speed control We have a townhome in a new development equipped with the Panasonic FV-08VKM3 in the master bath. It is supposed to run at a lower speed until it detects movement and then at higher speed until some time after movement has stopped. It now only runs at what seem to be the higher speed. I can not find any way to contact Panasonic about this. The unit should be under warranty, but the installer says we need to cover labor to repair it. There is at least one other unit in the development that has the same problem, and likely many more.
