Default Range hood thoughts?

Hi folks. My house is a couple of years old and my range hood just gave up the ghost. I paid for an upgrade but it's pretty clear now the "Air King" unit they put in is pretty crappy. Broken switches, never did pull much air (it's vented) and tonight I put on the lights (with the dicky switch) and heard a fuse-like "pop" so I'm ready to give up on it.
Anyways, hoping for some thoughts on a couple of things:

1) I pulled it out tonight to look at the venting and electrical with a replacement in mind to find that it was not well connected to the vent pipe at all - the rectangular boot was just sitting loosely (and not at all heavily) on top of the rectangular vent outlet on top. Pretty sure this is the cause of the crappy performance - it would be best sealed on with aluminum tape right?

2) Anyone have recommendations on a decent replacement? It's under-cabinet and I'd want stainless, maybe 5-6 inches high (not one of the monsters). These things are not really all that complex so I'm not looking to break the bank on overpriced named stuff. Anyone got experience of the Costco ones or the various ones on Amazon.ca?

Thanks in advance.
