Don't know whether to go for this or wait for the fires on sale at Comet that I've heard about

Ive got an Npower electricity monitor and a similar heater to this.....don't look at the meter when you first turn it on, that's all I have to say!
these might in short supply soon if the wheater gets any colder

Surely the clue is in the product title?

It sure is, but it's only recently I have started to want to understand the numbers. That was a result of seeing the meter tell me how many £'s per hour it was costing to run certain things.
It shows back at £39.99 for me...
Please people don't use these for long. They cost 25-30p an hour to run!
These will add £££ to your bill! Google rointe their heaters although expensive run against one of these is actually cheaper all in for a years use with initial cost and energy bill

Please do explain how it can by physically possible for their heaters to produce more heat cheaper than any other electric heater?

Yes, they have fancy TFTs and controls, but they still follow the laws of thermodynamics. Their 1600w heater will you give you exactly the same amount of heat as any other 1600w electric heater.

The ONLY way electric heaters can be cheaper to run, is if they are taking heat from outside their environment - eg. heat pumps.

Or if they use cheap-rate electricity - i.e. storage heaters.
Had these in the Derby store today. Had a red clearance sticker on.

Fair point, but only if you are on an Economy 7 type of electricity tariff, or have solar panels and are using it during the day whilst the panels are generating power (although frustratingly at this time of year they won't be producing as much as in the summer months)
priced at £39.99 cold!
