You have to be more specific.
It's like saying which one is better, Ford or Chevy.
What two models are you trying to compare.?

+1

I have had good luck with both and once you get into the upper end lines, they are all good.

I'm looking at this one

http://www.amazon.com/Delta-Breez-GB...E04V7QTW1SZ4MJ

VS

this one http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-FV-0...ref=pd_cp_hi_1

The delta models seem to cost less when comparing similar models. How high end do you have to go to get a well made product?

I would go bigger than 80 cfm unless the bath is small.

Either one should work.
While both are quiet fans, the Panasonic should be quieter.
The Delta is 0.8 sones.
The Panasonic is 0.3 sones.

There's often some sort of chart in the store that will tell you what CFM to get for the size (volume) of your bathroom. I always go one size larger, and get the quietest fan they have. Usually one with a light as well. If it's a new install, I always vent it horizontally through a wall, not through the roof. I know either way works, but I'm anal about roof holes of any kind.
