I had been using a smaller Hakko fan with filter that worked reasonably well and at least drew most solder fumes away. This fume extractor is in another league. So far as I can tell no smoke or fumes escape at all, the air no longer smells of flux or solder fumes. It has two or three power settings and is reasonably quiet on the lower settings while still working very well.
It took me a long time to come around to buying this not being sure if it was really worth the expense, now I strongly recommend this to anyone who routinely needs to solder and cares about their health although I can't help but feel the price for extractors as a whole is unjustifiably high. I mean on the surface it's really not that different to a shop wet/dry vacuum cleaner that costs about $80 and also includes a HEPA filter. However, relative to competing extractor units, this was a great deal.
On the highest fan speed the noise is similar to a room air-conditioner and is far less noisy...
I tried every fume extractor in the sub $200 category and all they do is pull the smoke in another direction, and none of them are really even powerful enough to do that effectively. I finally opted to get this because I have two young children and no outside veltilation in the room I solder in. I am finally happy with a fume extraction unit! This thing is awesome. I solder and the smoke gently draws toward the vent tube. I have yet to even smell flux in the room when it's on. If you are really concerned about flux fumes and your health this is the way to go. It's pricy (shop around BTW, it can be had for about 80% list) but it's the only REAL fume extractor I've come across. A candidate for best purchase!
