I like the energy smart mode. I switched out a propane water heater for this model. I just had this installed on Mar 31. So far, so good. In conjunction with installing Solar PV panels on my roof, I expect to save money over the next 10 years. April 16, 2015
Great price, warranty, and easy install. The major factors in purchasing this product was the reviews that I was able to find for this product. When comparing the cost to similar units, this was by far the better value. Our last unit was 20 years old and due for a change. The old unit was an 80 gallon unit when we had 5 people. Now with just 2 plus guest from time to time we decided to go with a 50 gallon tank. It was a very easy install and hot water in 45 minutes. April 15, 2015
It's a water heater. No excitement here. We went to purchase an old-technology unit, but the warranty on the new government-mandated units was 50% longer, 12 years. The size was an irritation, as we had to put it thru a 24" door in a 26" closet. the 26" tray had to be bent to fit. Plumbing for the relief valve had to be done over, no longer on the top rear, now on the front side. Electrical was just barely at the edge of the wire length we had available. As far as electronics, I'm always a bit leery: what happens when the "computer" fails, power outage, overheating? I have no idea impact on electric bill, yet. It's a water heater. Should do the trick for the next 12 or so, unless I forget the anode rod again. April 13, 2015

Digital display a nice feature I like the display pad to alter setpoint and mode. Easy to read and use. April 6, 2015
Working great! Delivered hot water within 2 hours after installation. Positives: 1. 12 year warranty. 2. Stainless electrodes instead of copper. 3. Simple temperature setting via touch screen panel. 4. "Vacation" mode and "Energy Smart" modes of operation. 5. Smart looking stainless case. 6. Hotter water than replaced unit. Negatives: a. 24" diameter might not fit everywhere. b. Height shorter than replaced model makes power connect a possible problem. c. Cost much higher than short warranty models. April 5, 2015
