they seem so much cheaper than everything else - are they crap?

I fitted one in our shower room six months ago. Doesn't seem to be crap, certainly heats up and doesn't leak - too early to judge longevity. Wall fixings supplied were okay and I used a pair of chrome rad valves http://www.screwfix.com/app/sfd/sea/searchresults.jsp ;jsessionid=XGUPLPP11AH CZCJO2C4CKTQ?_dyncharset=UTF-8&q=&nS901&pn=1&pd=1&pi=1&cn=1&cd=1&x=7&y
all good.

I fully concur... We've had ours a year now and we're more than happy with it. Heat output is great - it certainly does heat the bathroom as claimed.

Yep. Same here. I fitted the flat chrome one and it certainly kicks out the heat. I'd suggest a TRV on it if you have kids....
Cheers,
Paul.

I've fitted several of these both chrome and white. Basically they are good valvue for money. Would expect them to last as long or longer than the ordinary steel radiators.

Bought my mum and dad one when they had CH installed and it works a treat. Only cheaper ones are half the size.

Installed one a few months ago (white version but otherwise the same). Perhaps it's early days, but I'm very happy with it. Looks fine, works fine.

I've got one sat waiting to be fitted. There were some posts about they've arriving with some rust on them so I checked mine carefully. Seems fine.
So yes, it's a good deal.

Cheers for all the advice. Anyone know if it's possible to fit an electric element (for summer) B&Q do them for about 30-35 quid for their range, but I can't see any reason why it won't work in others. Incedentally, the B&Q elctric bit is out of stock at our store and online - anyone know where else I can get one for a reasonable price?

I've been looking for the 400 watt element. No luck on their web site, nor in five stores around West London. In the end, I found the 600 watt element in Luton's B&W, so I bought that. Haven't tried/measured it against the towel rails I bought (also from B&Q) but can't see any reason why it won't work.
The elements I found elsewhere - probably incompatible - were in excess of £60-80 each!
