          I got this unit because of the excellent reviews and was not disappointed at all. I installed it in the bathroom which is 10 feet X 12 feet because it only has the heat that filters in from the other rooms when the door is open. Because I had decided on using 240V based on the other reviews, it took me almost 3 hours to fit the unit and connect it to the RCB unit in the basement. The cutting out and the fitting of the heater took only about an hour as the rest of the time was struggling with the cable through the wall and down into the basement and along the wall to the RCB which is 45 feet from the unit.

But it was worth the effort. Yes the fan does hum a little, but of little concern in the bathroom. What I like the best is the ability to simply push a button to turn it on and then simply do the same again when leaving the bathroom. And it is so comfortably warm exiting the shower taking only a few minutes to heat the room. The cost of running the unit is kept to a minimum because of this. I would not contemplate using this as the only heat source, but for convenience as a quick room warm up whilst taking a shower is absolutely ideal. It works as described, looks good and well designed. Read Less

The top is quite heavy and while struggling to line it up, one of the side frames was hit by the falling heavy top and it snapped off at the base. Had I read the instructions and followed them, it would have been easy to line the base up with the top as it is much lighter and the side frames can be maneuvered to line the dowels with the holes. Rather than send it back, I glued the piece back on and used slightly longer screws. The next day, I put the coffee table together in 10 minutes and this time following the instructions and it was so easy to fit.
          Moral of the story….read the instructions, however easy it seems.
          This Brexley coffee table is very well made and certainly a beautiful finish. It already attracts positive attention almost as soon as people see it in the dining room. Complete, the measurements are forty three and a half inches length, twenty one and a quarter inches width and eighteen and a half inches high. I would buy another one. In fact, the wife has just looked over my shoulder and says we are.

          Tavern table and 2 stools
          I bought this table and two stools for added seating for meals when the 2 grown up kids show up unexpected, starving and short of money. I needed a sturdy hard wearing top and even more strength for the stools as kids being kids, they tend to rock back and forth on them without giving a thought that their 200lb weight could possibly be too much for the two wooden legs they are balancing on.
          The packaging was excellent and the assembly instructions clear and concise. First the table. Took me ten minutes to assemble it and was easy and straight forward. It has a beautiful hard finish to the top that retains the color and shine even after numerous attempts to discolor

          Tavern table and 2 stools
          I bought this table and two stools for added seating for meals when the 2 grown up kids show up unexpected, starving and short of money. I needed a sturdy hard wearing top and even more strength for the stools as kids being kids, they tend to rock back and forth on them without giving a thought that their 200lb weight could possibly be too much for the two wooden legs they are balancing on.
          The packaging was excellent and the assembly instructions clear and concise. First the table. Took me ten minutes to assemble it and was easy and straight forward. It has a beautiful hard finish to the top that retains the color and shine even after numerous attempts to discolor it by accidental spillages.
          Total height when assembled is 36” and 42” long and 22” wide which can easily seat 4 people.
          The stools took a little longer to assemble as the cross bars kept falling out as I was trying to thread the bolts through. I found the best way to assemble then was to fit the four legs to the rush seat panel first and leave them loose enough to be able to slip the cross bars in before tightening the bolts. Then finally screwing the cross bars to the legs. Perfect.
          The Rush Seat Panels are very beautiful and well-made and certainly passed the `grown up kids` test of using two legs instead of the four.
          As a final note, I found that 3 of the threaded bolts were a bit too tight for finger turning when assembling the first stool so before I started on the second one, I tried all of the bolts into the leg first. Sure enough two of them would not thread easily until I used the supplied key to start them off. Once they were in about two threads, they became very easy to thread the whole way using finger power. So my advice is to try all the threaded bolts first on the table and the chairs before assembly to make sure they turn freely.
          All in all, a good buy at a good price.

          It is what it says. Good suction power and general performance. Would have liked a smaller tool for cleaning the inside of the car as the more hard to get to places remain hard to get at, especially between the front seats. Overall it is light enough to easily carry and does its job quite effeciently. Good for the price.

          I've come to like GE products more over the last few years and this stove is no exception. It does what the makers description says it does (that's a big plus in today's sales gimmicks) And yes,like the other reviews, the top is so easy to clean after a spillage. And the after sales service is excellent.
