I am a commercial artist who works from a 11 x 13 studio attached to my home. The studio gets some heat from the gas furnace, but not a lot, and I'd like it to be warmer in there without having to turn up the heat in the rest of the house. I decided to try this baseboard heater because it's supposed to be quiet and the size was right for just under the picture window. So far, I've been really happy with the performance. I turn it on before breakfast and by the time I come back ready to work the whole studio is nicely warmed and it keeps the temperature even all day without me having to fuss about it. And it is definitely quiet - I've noticed a few clicks as it adjust the temperature, but that's all. Not like the noisy space heaters I am familiar with from the past. This is a great heater and I am happy to recommend it to others.

First of all, Overstock ships fast and the packaging was great for this product. I received this heater as a present from my parents because my bedroom is above the garage and always cold in the winter. I set it up in front of the window after reading that this helps circulate the heat through the draft. After a few hours of running it, my room was too warm so I had to turn it down. Although it says it is good for a room size of 250 square feet, it does heat a room a little over 300 sq ft. Maybe it took a little longer but was all good. I highly recommend this for anyone looking to heat a room of similar size and normal ceiling height.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Construction is better than expected
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very Accurate although the room size it heats is bigger than stated
It is a little bit bigger than I thought it would be, but still fit alright where I needed it. It seems really sturdy, and is not too noisy. I get plenty of heat for my space from it - almost too much. I had to experiment a lot to make sure it didn't get too hot.The only thing I would complain about is that the controls aren't all that intuitive but the instructions in the manual let me figure things out. All in all, I'm happy with this purchase.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It's a nice matte black

I bought this heater in October of 2013. I loved the style and it put out good heat. I was very happy with it. It was turned on and used only about 6 times. Last week I turned it on and it only heated for an hour. Yesterday it would not heat at all. I am in the process of trying to send it back.
This heater stopped working after one month. The knob is also confusing. The temperature alternates with the time. I have had to show everyone who wants to turn it on how it works. Unfortunately, it isn't working at all now and didn't heat very well when it did work even at 75 degrees or high heat.
Bought this about a month ago to help heat my daughter's room which is always cold. Works well in a small space, quiet and heats the room quickly. Hopefully it will last longer than her last space heater!
