I got this heater on sale and I have mostly been impressed by it. It comes with the usual functions that most heaters nowadays have. You can select low or high output and then the temperature. However, temp will shut off once it detects the room is of similar temp. This can be good and bad as sometimes I like to keep the heat going. The only way to keep the heater running is to put the heat on the max level (which can get very annoying). However, I know many other heaters like this so this isn't something very unusual. The heater is in general, very reliable. Its been working for about 2 years without breaking down until recently it wouldn't turn on. I thought it was dead but after leaving it disconnected for a while it started working again. All in all I'm very satisfied with my purchase and I would recommend this to others. However, currently there are more models that are thinner with more extra features that may be more appealing.
