Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jake Doesn't stay formed and poor heat transfer
I've been through two winters with this stuff covering my old baseboard. It inhibits the heat transfer to the room. Certainly you still get some heat but, not enough to heat my rooms anymore. Also, over time the plastic starts to lose a bit of its form and open up. This results in the top popping out. To fix it, I will have to purchase new plastic or put some tiny white screws along the top to keep them on tight.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GoGetter Fairly easy to install, looks great, bit pricey, but then again you only buy it once
Lets start with value, I agree with others, these are pricey, however I also keep in mind that you are only going to invest in these once, then take into account replacing old metal ones with new, plus labor, it would actually be even more expensive and time consuming. So value, I give it a B+.
Now for quality, the place is very durable, easy to clean, and also keeps dust out. They come with a 18 mo warranty as well from HD so if anything happens you just bring it in and they replace it, so that alone is pretty good and rolled into the price, most don't know that they carry a warranty.
Installation is pretty easy, use some tin snip to cup the top and bottom and then score the rest of the line with a razor and bend back and forth until it snaps, hide rough cuts with the butt rings.
As far as people saying they restrict heat, the key is to install them properly, make sure you have at min a 1" gap between bottom of cover and floor, also, make sure you OPEN or remove the damper flap piece on the original baseboard, I prefer to open them so the head deflects both out of the holes in the cover and circulates back down to floor since heats rises after all, this is kind of like a convection oven by doing this, if the damper is CLOSED it will block the holes in the cover.
Overall it made our house looks night and day, so bright & clean and everyone who has seen these all comment on how they like the appearance better than the metal ones.
Also these are NOT sharp which is great if you have small children, be careful installing not to cut yourself on the metal fins of the heateing element and wear gloves.
I would recommend these especially for a do it your selfer.

Only downfall of this product is it less heat out of the top compared to the standard steal cover.

This cap only fits a small size hydronic, not the older / taller hydronics I have in my house. Also a little cheap looking.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AH616 Sometimes good, sometimes not
These stay on nicely for some of our baseboards, but completely fall off others. Be warned if your heater backplate is even slightly warped on the top edge (like tilting upwards), the plastic on this will mould to that shape when you turn your heater on, and then has the tendency to fall off. We did not realize this would happen when we installed them in July. They originally went on beautifully and stayed put until the winter when we began to use the heat. Too late to return them to get a traditional metal set, so we are out about $450 for heater covers that don't stay put in a lot of places. Disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GraceB Forever baseboard, I hope
Bought theses for a room I just refinished. New paint made the old baseboards look terrible. Thought I would give Neat Heat a try. Very easy to install. I removed the old front plate of my baseboard. I was able to trim the Neat Heat easily to fit around some molding using a drimmel. They just pop over the existing baseboard.
I thought they where expensive but if they last a long time then it will be worth the cost.
