Bathroom Heater/Vent/Light Recommendation

A decade ago I bought a Nutone 665P Heater/Vent/Light fixture, installed it, but never powered it up; I'm finally getting around to wiring/tiling/plumbing the bathroom for which I bought it.

The unit is very noisy, not terribly good-looking, and the heater has a strange smell. I wonder whether, in the decade since I looked into this, the state of the art has advanced far enough for me to bother looking at improved models. I recall that wiring this thing was a pain: lots of wires in a very tiny space.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a new and improved unit?

re: Heater: is the forced hot air (of this unit) preferable to or inferior to the heat lamp approach?

Or, is radiant floor heating now considered superior to any of the overhead heating options?

That's the exact model of fan/light/heat that I'd put in today if you called me. That funny heater smell will go away soon. It's just dust and crap from sitting. Noisy? That's in the ear of the beholder, but I never really thought so. Maybe the guts of the fan could use a few screws tightened.

They are still a viable item to install. Nothing wrong with them unless the noise gets to you.

I will say though, the radiant floor heat is the way to go today. The stuff is cheap to run, not too terribly expensive to buy, but it is a bit of work to install.
Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.
