Pros: Appears to be well built. Easy lighting. Heats very quickly and maintains the set temperature very well. Cons: Took three weeks to arrive at our store for pickup. Fortunately I could keep my old water heater going by relighting the pilot 2 - 3 times a day. Also was received slightly damaged. The outer metal skin near the bottom on the back side was caved in. No indication of product damage on the outside of the carton when I picked it up at the store. Did not appear it would affect actual performance, would not show, and I did not want to wait another three weeks for a replacement. Overall, the heater rates a Five Star so far, (After One Month). Home Depot's performance, (wait time and damage), a Three Star.

No issues. Works great.
Registered it in Feb so I have had it at least 11 months. I was worried that a power outage would require a service call based on what I read online. Turns out that was false. Have had a couple outages and came back to life both times no issues. I do worry about the electronic flap longevity. Time will tell. I have not purchased the Wi-Fi module. just don't see a reason to.

better than expected
I expected to replace the 100 lb tank for this monthly. Its been three months and going strong on low setting. Any other setting was foo warm for us, which is not a bad thing. Install was easy. Shipping took a while but that was expected. Would recommend.
