I bought a cheaper one thinking I could save a little, $. MISTAKE, it was loud, it got too hot, the crystals bounced all over and made ugly piles. This unit, the crystals on the bottom of this unit are glued together so they don't bounce all over, the thermostat is nice and accurate and it is quiet. My ONLY complaint is the lack of color options, others have so many more colors, but hey, I guess that can be an improvement for the future, as far as functionality, this is a FIVE STAR unit. I have got caught in cold weather and have gone through a propane tank per night, if you do any cold weather camping, this unit will pay for itself.
If you look at the picture, keep in mind that it was taken mid renovation. Now the TV is centered on that wall with the fireplace below it were the cabinetry was. I installed real stone peel and stick around the fireplace, and I couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out.
