Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jojotexas Puts out heat nicely
We almost bought one of those fancy dancing flame heaters before buying this one and I'm glad I read reviews before I did! The fancy one apparently does not put out much heat so I am glad we passed on it. This heater took a while to assemble but is nicely made and sturdy. It took a few minutes of clicking the igniter to get it to light the first time, so don't give up too quickly. Once lit, it produced a nice amount of heat but burned through one canister of gas in about 3 hours at 33 degrees outside temperature, so have an extra gas canister on hand for a long night. The one complaint is it has no wheels for moving it and it is quite heavy and awkward to move. I have seen a similar product at Academy Sports for the same price and it had wheels,but I had already bought this one. I think a wheel mechanism is nice to have but not a deal breaker. Overall, I am happy with my purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PatB EXCEEDS MY EXPECTATIONS
Needed to replace a $200 patio heater I bought 4 years ago. Was hesitant to purchase this one because of the low price and some of the comments I read. Glad my intuition won and I purchased it. It was easy to assemble (and I am a 65-year-old female), it is very attractive and, once I realized that the pilot knob needs to be turned all the way to the stopping point, it lights the first time, every time. I spend a lot of time outside, so I turn it on more than 5 times a day. It puts out great heat so, unless it is 30 degrees or less outside, I turn it to a lower position and don't use as much propane. Very happy with this heater.

We love using this product. Was very happy with product and easy to put together. We use this quite often and the heat area is wider than I thought so it's nice that you don't have to actually be sitting right under it! Very inexpensive compared to other heaters I had looked at. Might be buying another one for the other side of the patio :) We truly enjoy this on the patio for morning coffee and in the evening for watching TV on the back porch...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheZooKeeper Almost perfect
The only drawback to this unit is that the regulator assembly is straight off the tank and therefore causes chaffing of the gas hose when the body is lowered. It should have had a 90 degree elbow off the tank which would have prevented that. Assembly was about an hour and it fired right up. Great unit for the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OutdoorGuy Easy assemby and easy to start
Bought the unit this morning and assembled it this afternoon. Instructions are very good and easy to follow. Biggest problem was removing rubbery plastic coating on the heat deflector prior to assembly. Had read a few negative reviews on the ignitor and starting mechanism. There was no problem with either and starting is fairly simple if you follow the directions. There is plenty of slack on the hose that connects to the propane tank. Suggestion, to avoid complaints by others that the angle of the connector is not favorable, connect the tank to the hose while it is outside the unit. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CONNECT THE TANK AFTER PLACING IT INSIDE THE HOUSING.....FAR MORE DIFFICULT

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CADave Good Price, but Poor Quality
Have owned this unit for exactly 1 year, and it has a great price and gives out great heat - but quality is poor. As others have mentioned, the regulator sticks straight out from the tank (instead of a 90 degree bend) which makes it impossible to install an inline level gauge as well as kinks the hose majorly against the sliding tank cover. My hose has just begun to leak and availability of OEM regulator and hose assembly is zero. The pilot lighting mechanism works poorly, and requires 20+ (loud) pushes which wakes up the whole neighborhood. I've stopped using it and just keep a butane lighter for the purpose now. Not happy 1 year later.
