    "This thing really saved my butt and perhaps marriage. Tried to sneak in a late season camping trip in Flagstaff, AZ a few weeks ago only to find the temps dropping into the ~25 range as a low. Dog bowls and all bottled water were frozen SOLID each morning. As a tent camper, I was a bit worried about leaving this thing on all night. I bought the Mr. Heater Buddy Series Hose Assembly - 10-ft., Model# F273704 and had a full-sized tank of propane outside my tent. A major worry was the warning that this heater may not work above 7000 feet elevation and where we were was 7300. Regardless it worked like a charm and I even pre-heated the tent before we called it a night and left it on all night while we slept. I did pick up two CO2 alarms just in case because I'll admit we did not have a ton of ventilation. Not even a chirp from them nor did I ever smell any incomplete burning or propane smell. Needless to say, we woke up every morning nice and toasty and slept very well throughout the night. After 4 nights the full-sized propane tank was not even touched speaking tot he efficiency of this unit. Lighting is easy but if using the 10' hose don't forget to hold down the pilot light for about 30 seconds until you smell propane. There is a lot of air in that line that you need to bleed out."

    "A good overview for one type of heater, but the description did feel a bit brief and rushed. I would like to have known more from this intro, and instead I feel like I have to do most of the research myself! Also not sure what makes it different from others."

    "This heater has been of great use in my poorly insulated home where the cold could be the worst part of the year. It sits right under my feet but leaves my room nice and warm when I change rooms. I instantly notice the difference in temperature walking between my living room and my bedroom and I highly reccommend this product."

    "The Rosewill RHTH-17001 is a very LOUD heater. I had to turn my TV up to 40 volume just to hear my favorite show, Murder She Wrote. This heater does not even put out very good heat. It's basically a fan that blows around the air in the room but doesn't heat it up. Not a fan of this heater."

    "Perfect size to sit next to grandma in her sewing room. It always was the coldest room in the house, and with all that yarn the old school heaters were not safe enough. This one is the right size, easy to use, and the ceramic reduces fire danger so Grams don't get burned like Uncle Bill."

    "This heater is fantastic. I have a garage that we converted into a playroom, and this heater works great at heating it! It has a thermostat so you can set the temperature you want the room to be rather than just low or high like some other heaters. I do have to use a separate outlet for this thing or it will blow the fuse; I don't know if it's just a problem with my house or if everyone has the same issue. "

    "Don't let the fancy features fool you with any of these heaters. It is a 1500 watt space heater that puts out 1500 watts of heat. It doesn't do it any better or worse than any other 1500 watt heater. Safety is the most important thing with space heaters. I like the cool to the touch surfaces, except for the front, when this style is working."

It put out good heat , but the floor in front of it felt a little too hot for my taste also. It was nice looking and had a handle at top to carry it , which was nice also."
