Super easy life upgrade
The longer I have this sauna, the more I fall in love with it.
It came in three boxes and was very easy to set up. I'm a strong guy, so I was able to set it up by myself, but I would recommend doing it with another person. The only difficult part for me was moving the front panel which was very heavy due to the glass. I had it up and running in less than an hour.
Because it's an infrared sauna, it's not necessary that the chamber be hot like a traditional sauna. What matters is that the infrared light, which is invisible to the human eye, shines on your body. Fortunately, the sauna is equipped with four far-infrared panels on the back and sides and one near-infrared panel on the seat riser. There is also another panel which is supposed to be on the floor. Because I sweat a lot, I prefer to prop that it up against the door or against one side. That way I don't create a puddle on top of the carbon infrared light panel.
The maximum internal temperature of the chamber has been about 54°C /129°F. While the air temperature it is not as hot as a traditional sauna, you will still be sweating buckets.
The sauna is more than spacious for two fit adults and luxurious for 1 adult. That said, there isn't room to stretch out or do yoga poses.
The control panel goes to a maximum of 90 minutes, and I have found that turning it on for about 20 minutes to heat the air up before I go in and then spending 45-60 minutes inside does wonders for me.
The cost to run it is how ever much you pay for 1.8KWh electricity per hour. For me it is between $0.40 and $1.20 per hour.
The sauna is not without its oddities, which I suppose is one of the reasons why it is so inexpensive.
First, the control panel is not wifi-enabled, so the only way to turn it on is to actually go and push the button. Maybe it's too much to ask, but in this day and age there is no reason why the sauna can't be controlled by an app. The second strange thing is the audio jack is located inside the sauna in the ceiling. This seems like a very strange place to put the audio jack and would require a cable hanging down from the ceiling to a phone in the sauna and there is nowhere to stash the phone inside. Fortunately, the glue that was used to hold the mini plug in place wasn't strong enough and the jack and wires were floating around, so I ended up adding an old Google Chromecast audio device and left it in the roof rather than inside the sauna. You could do the same thing with a Bluetooth receiver. The third oddity is the positioning of the near-infrared panel behind in the seat riser. That puts the near-infrared panel behind your calves. While it does good there, it would be nicer if it were shining on the whole body.
While I just listed off some oddities, they are minor. I highly recommend this sauna. While it is not a luxury sauna, it is a great way to have an infrared sauna inexpensively.
I LOVE my sauna! It was easy to put together. My 15 yo son and I did it by ourselves. Works great! I would recommend it.

Great Sauna and Value
I had been looking for a while at Saunas and when I saw that Home Depot had this one as a deal of the day and I had to JUMP on it (apparently a lot of others did too as it is now currently out of stock as of 5/14/21)! The site originally stated that it would be delivered late in May, but I actually received the unit in 7 days! It came on a 32"x 60" pallet in two boxes that were wrapped and strapped to the pallet very securely. The assembly was easy and took me maybe an hour. The hardest part is moving the door. That piece is pretty heavy so I would suggest using two people. Also, when you are unpacking the door, DON'T pull on the string that holds the door shut until after you've installed the door! I learned that lesson the hard way! A couple of tips 1) the instructions and hardware are inside a shoebox that is pack with the roof, 2) the "seat" sticker on the floor and roof don't point TO the seat, they point in the DIRECTION that you would be facing if you were SITTING on the seat...a little confusing but you'll figure that part out quickly...
As for as functionality, this unit is GREAT. heats up to 150 with bluetooth and LED light...can't complain at all. Thanks Home Depot for helping me put together my own little paradise!
