this is our 3rd patio heater. I have one high end I paid more than $700 for in 1998, one from Costco that is of a lower quality but for the price I paid ( $159) this seems like a great value. I gave it 4 stars out of 5 because I felt like I was putting more parts together than was needed for the unit to reasonably ship. The table top feels a little cheap and it made of a laminate feeling top - I suspect it will not weather well but it is non essential, easy to remove and I have only had this for 1 week so I may be wrong about how it weathers. The other reason I didn't give it 5 of 5 is the quality feels just ok ( for example the base has a hinged door with a latch - it requires bending down and using both hands to line up the door with the lock mechanism ) again this is minor and after all the shopping around I would likley buy this unit again if I replace by 15 year old heater.One positive - it comes with a plastic cover that fits the top - I didn't expect this so that was a bonus.
