This is the only baseboard heater in my house so I can't give a good comparison to others, but it does exactly what it's supposed to do. Even in Buffalo's single degree temperatures, it is able to keep my bedroom at a comfortable 70 degrees (probably higher if I tried).
The wiring diagram was confusing at first, but was reasonably simple to figure out -- always hire a professional electrician!! I spaced it out from the wall using a 1x6 board, but the wall above it still gets very hot.
I will likely be adding some more heaters in select rooms, and will probably be shopping for Dimplex products first!

The heaters work awesome! They heat up quickly and make no noise. Instructions are easy to follow and straight forward. You should know that if you have the built in thermostat be prepared to have them set 4 degrees cooler than than the desired temp. At 60 degrees F the room was about 64 degrees. 61 was at about 66 Degrees Etc. The baseboards live up to being 50% smaller and being able to heat the room. I replace 112" Electric Baseboard with this model and the room is kept very warm without the heater constantly running. They make no noise at all which I did see in a couple of the reviews which made me reluctant to buy, but I am glad I did. My only theory would be the front plate might not have been attached securely or the element. I bought two and they both heat my basement as advertised! Now I have to fix the trim around the floors But that is no big deal!
My only other issue was the channel underneath the baseboard which they recommend you use the left side as a junction box if the wire comes in on that side. It should be enclosed underneath the heater instead of having just the lip or an extended lip, in my opinion, as the wire just hangs and more plastic wire protectors/clips should be included in the box for these kind of runs. The wire clamps I bought at store and are code. I had to bend the wire up at almost a right angle. They should leave a space on either side of that channel for room for wire clamps like they have now. But that was my only real issue with them. But not a deal breaker at all and I would highly recommend these heaters!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by EastCanuck Dimplex Linear Proportional Convector Baseboard Heater and the "stand-off" Optimizer Kit
Generally easy to install, however adding the Optimizer Kit is a bit fussy. Each leg in the kit has two sets of very little tiny tabs one must press into the back of the heater, and then move on to the next one. The tabs are so small, the leg you just put on pops off when you're doing the next one and it becomes a case of corralling cats. Each leg has two screws and I found if you start a screw into the tabs they won't pop off so easily. Overall this is a good unit, but the stand-offs, though very useful, make installation a delicate fuss.
