Glen G2S 2kW Convector Heater
Bought one of these heaters today - a bit dubious as the box was branded "Winterwarm" but it turned out to contain the Glen heater which if you don't know are part of Dimplex.
Once i got it home and sorted the feet out, made space for it on my hearth (going from a coal fire to this due to health problems stopping me making a fire all the time and a few other reasons too) and plugged it in i was amazed at the instant heat output! Bear in mind i've been using a 2kW fan heater until now and fan heaters are renowned for instant heat.
The reason it only got 4 stars for ease of use is although the instructions are very clear, the display wasn't - i found the icons a little too small to see easily. Once i found them, the electronic programmer was programmed very easily.
I first fired it up at about 620pm and the room temperature was 15C - by 630 it was up to 19C and the room isn't that small at 15' x 12'.
The features are very useful - the electronic timer for a start, once i got over the minor hiccup of the icons being too small! It has 2 heat settings so once the room is warm, it can be reduced to a 1kW output to just keep it "ticking over" or if you wish, just leave it to the thermostat to keep it at the selected temperature.
Bottom line is would i buy another? Definitely! In fact, i've been using a 1.2kW convector heater in my bedroom for a few weeks now and found that quite good although nowhere near as good as this one - i'll probably buy another of these when i next go shopping!

Omg what a great little heater, impressive, heated my garage conversion room which is so cold in the winter, now its lovely and warm, definately recommend, prevously bought an oil heating rad for this room and it did nothing so this little heater is unbelieveable.

Great value heater
Heats up very quickly and it can heat up a large room easily, good value for money.

Good economy heater
Small and light but still throws out plenty of heat and very quickly to boot. Got the basic version without thermostat but I imagine it would be useful.
