Quiet and looks good.
Does what it claims and is quiet.
It is well designed and looks unobtrusive in our kitchen.
We didn't like the colour of the LED light strip, cool white, that didn't match the under bench LED strip that we installed. It was easy to remove the factory supplied LED strip and replace it with a piece the same as our other LED, and it now matches perfectly. Changing it dramatically improved the look of our kitchen at night with the lights on.
If you read this Sirius, perhaps offer different temp LED strip to match customers LED's, as an option, or accessory.
All up we are very pleased with it and would recommend Sirius.

Very quiet and efficient
Researched for a Range-hood that has external motor. Sirius ticked all the boxes being very quiet and efficient. On the lower setting you can hardly hear it. Very efficient in extracting food odours and smoke to the outside. The LED light works very well. Very easy to clean and looks elegant. I highly recommend this product.
The benefits of off-board motor and easy clean baffle filters suitable for induction shouldn't be underestimated especially when coming from an older sliding canopy range-hood and being noise sensitive
compares very favourably in quality with some brands where the ducting and fitting alone would cost almost the same as this complete unit
No more stinky kitchen
We have gone from an old style over stove exhaust unit that just recirculated the air back in your face - to our wonderful new Sirius which now extracts all the cooking smells outdoors - its great. Its simple to use and has great LED lighting to illuminate the cooking surface
This one's the best for quality, performance and price
I spent months checking reviews, specifications and above all the quality of a rangehood to suit my new kitchen. One review recommended the Sirius range of hoods as a standout in all areas, back to the drawing board so I checked out the Sirius SL 906 EL850 (onboard single motor) and was pleasantly surprised by the specs and reviews of the product.
The decision was made and purchased the Rangehood from Whitfords Five Dock (excellent service & price) I fitted this on the weekend.
After installing and using this product I would rate all t...he areas below as 5 stars: Quality- looks very expensive yet not nearly the price of similar rangehoods Build- solid with thick panels no rattles or hum during use Performance - serious motor power removes all the smoke steam Noise- very quiet but make sure you use Sirius ducting it's super quiet

Perfect Rangehood For Removing Odours
We have a 90cm oven and gas cooktop and the old range hood was so ineffective that we cooked outside most of the time. So when the old range hood broke, we almost didn't bother replacing it. However, having read previous reviews of the Sirius range hoods on this website, we eventually decided to buy a Sirius SL906 - EXCEL850 range hood. The EXCEL means there are two motors inside the body of the range hood, while the 850 stands for the width in mm (i.e. left to right). The depth, or front to back, is about 260mm for all models that I looked at....The size was big factor for us because we installed it inside an old chimney that used used to house a wood oven. If you have the space, you might consider a larger model. I think they recommend that the range hood is wider than the cooktop. Other models have single motor in the range hood and another at the top of the ducting - which means it is quieter but for us that was not the major issue. We bought a factory second from the Sirius website which worked out about $400 cheaper. They also sell ducting kits which I bought - they are much better than the ones you buy at the hardware store. The Sirius range hood was more expensive than the common brands but that is because it has 3-4 times more suction, removing 2000m3 of air per hour. In comparison, standard machines that you buy in the big electrical stores only manage about 500m3. The single motor Sirius does a 1000m3 per hour, which is still twice as powerful as standard machines and it would probably be perfect for a 60cm cooktop, but I recommend going for the double motor model when you have a bigger cooktop or, like us, you cook a lot of stir fries. Since the kitchen is such an important aspect of life, I highly recommend getting such a great range hood as the Sirius SL906.
With the motor positioned in the roof, this Sirius SL906EML850 Rangehood is soooo quiet and yet very efficient. It is very easy to operate, it is discreetly tucked away under our overhead cupboards and has beautiful LED lighting. This rangehood looks fantastic in our newly renovated kitchen. Money well spent! Highly recommended!!
Questions & Answers
we are considering purchasing Sirius sl906,we have concerns with the control buttons under right side of inbuilt unit,these are difficult to know which one you are pressing ,its a pot luck till you get the one you need.
also with the the distance of the motor from the unit to the out let is how far is safe and doing a good job,how many motors ,and servicing of unit with motor in roof and out let top of roof???? can i get feed back please
Dear Margaret28, thank you for your question, the undermount rangehood your referring to has the buttons on the right side and the light and button level one is towards the back of the unit while number 4 and the induction countdown control are at the front. If your using an offboard motor it should be ideally placed 2 metres form the unit or up to 7 metres. one motor is only possible with these units. The motor needs to be accessible for servicing, please call our team here at Sirius on 1300762219 for any further questions, thank you Sirius Brand.
Thanks for your question. The main reason why we chose the SIrius was for the efficiency of air removal - it was the best that I found. We specifically chose the model where the buttons are hidden because we didn't want the range hood to be visible. You do get used to where the buttons are, but they do make other Sirius models where the buttons are at the front if you want to be able to see the buttons.
