Really, this is a great, efficient & inexpensive product. It's not a focused blast-furnace of heat, but it is quiet, efficient, and plenty warm. Compared to propane fired heaters, this thing is as quiet as a church-mouse. You can't even tell it's on, except for the heat and the warm orange glow. I got this unit to take camping/hunting/fishing... because those fall and winter mornings can now be that much nicer. On a recent public land pheasant hunt, I received many good comments from other hunters who gathered around this heater at a pre-hunt meeting. I can see this would be great as an emergency heat source for power outage situations! It also can keep my garage work-area nice and toasty... it's a real luxury. An electric heater would do the same - but cost FAR more to operate. It is just what you would hope - and more than I think I paid for. Great deal - especially at the Wal-Mart.com price. Don't hesitate - this is 1/2 the cost of a Coleman or Mr. Heater - with twice the BTU's and fuel is 1/3 the price for twice the burn time. You can't go wrong! The canisters of fuel (I found on Amazon.com, Smart & Final & Big 5) are all about $2-$2.50 each. I have yet to burn one full canister out... and I've been using this heater for hours. Average burn time is 5 hours+ from what I can tell - ON HIGH. $2.50 for 5 hours of heat is VERY inexpensive! The extra effort put in to finding a source for the fuel is well worth the value secured by using this unit. Buy one - you will be pleased that you did!
