I wanted to move my 40 gal. tall heater from the laundry room to the crawlspace, but I had little space and I did not want to change the wire gauge. There are not many short Water Heaters that don't need upgrading the electric line. This is one of them. Good price, good performance, and so far all the hot water my wife and I need.

I called for service and they want me to troubleshoot the issue. Then they want to overnight parts leaving me without hot water. Can't just take in and have it swapped they want me to play plumber on their crappy equipment! What good is a 6 year warranty if you have to wait days for a plumber and parts? This is one of those times it is better to get a warranty from a plumber and not have to deal with crappy parts and service. Lesson Learned.
