I have one, and for the most part it works well. (I got it to replace
a pice-of-cr*p B&D that basically burnt it self up. But that's another
story.) I use it a lot for stripping paint, and I find I need to set
it near the max heat setting. Also, it has two fan speed settings, and
I always use it on the faster setting. The one complaint I have is
that the on/off switch doesn't slide very easily. I can't just hit the
switch with a finger on the hand that I'm holding it with, it takes two
hands to turn it on/off. That's most annoying when standing on a
ladder two stories off the ground with the heat gun in one hand and a
blisteringly hot scraper in the other hand. I don't know if that is a
basic design problem, or if I just got a bad one.
