Excellent is the word!!!!
However, I did need a different version for the bedrooms, and living room. The one I got ws for the bathroom. There's two different versions. I'll need to return one for an exchange.

Nice little heaters
We have a solar powered electric home which is predominantly heated with pellet fuel. Our bathrooms and kitchen have the Perfectoe heaters in place which are under every sink. Four heaters in all. The comforting direct heat flowing over your feet on a cold morning is astounding. However, if you are trying to heat a larger area beyond a bathroom or your feet you will be disappointed.
If your heater trips the over limit switch and not the reset switch be sure and order a replacement part for 36 bucks shipping and handling. Do not replace the entire unit.

Works better than the ealier model
This was purchased to replace the same heater that wore out. That earlier model under cabinet heater was louder than the the standard in-wall heater, and the screws would become loose and it would vibrate noisily. So far the replacement heater is working much more smoothly and quietly.

Nice unit, just a little short of perfection
The unit was very simple to wire and install. It works fine and is extremely quiet.
Because its designed to fit on a toeboard, the unit is both narrow and short. The cover plate is the same height as the hole that you need to cut... so you need to cut your hole precisely the correct height for slide the unit in, or you will see a gap above and/or below the unit. Make sure you use a template to cut the rectangle out.
It would have been nice if the installation instructions included a cutting template. If you make one yourself (like I did) consider that the heater has a top that screws onto the body - and you'll need to make the cutout a little wider to leave room for those screws to slide into the hole.
I installed my unit under a kitchen sink which had a support under the middle of the cabinet that runs from the toeboard back to the wall. This isn't something that you can see. I had to position the heater under the right side of my cabinet. My point is - make sure you know what is behind your toeboard before you start cutting the mounting hole.
The unit mounts to the toeboard with two screws. The back end of the heater is hanging in mid air. While this seems adequate, it would have been nice for them to include something to hold up the back of the unit so that it doesn't hang from the front screws and sag.
Nevertheless, a template and spacer are nice-to-haves and don't take away from the quality, quietness, and effectiveness of the heater. Seems a tad pricey.
