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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sue Great product - wrong size - correct size not available via Home Depot.
Although this product was PERFECT for my needs - the size was wrong. I need a 9" high cover and this only comes in 6". (I ordered in hopes that it would cover enough of the fins to look OK - it does not) The price was excellent and I was SO hoping it would fit. Other products (limited choices) sold online only would have cost about 500.00 to do a 14' section (one 10' one 4') and I have my whole house still to do. The cost of the same length in PVC was only 141.00. I'm not sure what I'll do, but I can't afford the cost for the online product. I've priced it out and it will cost over 5k to do my house (just to cover the units, not replace them)! That is WAY out of my budget. (the cost of the PVC to do my house would have been about 1500.00) So I had to return these products and will continue to try to find a reasonably priced solution - or hope they make this product available in 9" high sections eventually.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wjbl2010 Look great, snap right on
We just bought a home that is a bit of a fixer upper.. The baseboards are falling apart due to neglect from previous owners. We are slowly doing each room as we complete it with the neatheat system.. It is so easy to put on and they look great. We also have a toddler and she can't put her fingers inside which is great. We left them white but you can easily paint them. The end caps and splicers just give them a nice finished look, especially if we have to cut them.

Doesn't perfectly fit our baseboards but makes a huge difference. 90% satisfied. Wish I could add before and after pics to this review.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mkno Beware of cheap quality
Beware of this product. It's very cheap plastic that doesn't even fit together by itself. I reluctantly bought it because my bathroom baseboard is in very bad shape. Notice the warning: Fits most. It didn't fit mine so be careful if you decide to buy. This product is so over-priced it's sickening. Such cheap plastic pieces that cost maybe 2 dollars to make.

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.
