Why buy this as opposed to an electric convection if they are all almost 100% efficient and are likely to cost the same to run?
I am interested in reasons.

I guess the oil filled fins will retain some heat after the electric is turned off... so when the thermostat turns off the heating, the actual metal radiator fins will stay warm and give out some heat. A regular convector heater generally gets cold pretty quick once the thermostat cuts the power. I'm only making a guess based on a couple of these that I have at work.

However, I suspect these are slower to warm up initially (it has to warm the oil) compared to a convector heater which throws out heat almost straightaway.

But the oil filled ones take longer to heat up.

Yes so is there much between the two? I don't honestly know..... convectors throw heat upwards, these might radiate outwards and updwards more to some degree, like a normal radiator does (but heat always rises of course!)

You could also warm up clothes more safely on these whereas convectors cannot be covered.

Might be considered safer as no exposed heating element unlike the typical convector that has a mesh top covering the heating coil

Except price. These are twice the price of electric convection ones!

I'm in no way suggesting you buy one
I have electric convection heater and was really wondering whether these are better and why. May be they have a smaller footprint and look more expensive!
I think we've been down this road last time CPC advertised a heater
The trolls were out in force that day.

The only difference is that this will take 5+min to produce heat and 5+min to cool down. When this eventually leakes the oil may ruin your carpet. Oh and this is a lot heavier.. which will also ruin a carpet

Overall heat output is exactly the same for both, heat up and cool down times differ as mentioned.

Oil filed ones have a couple of advantages though...
With convection heaters you sometimes get the burning smell where dust has settled on the exposed heating element.
Some say convection heaters dry the air more.
That element exposure would probably make it unsuitable for where kids are about as they're more likely to drop something inside or cover it with something, so you could argue that oil filled is a little safer.
I only have very minimal experience of Oil Radiators but boyf uses them in his house (all electric cos he's in the Highlands and they don't get gas!!).

I found 1.5kW kept the living room "comfortable" but I'd probably have needed a higher heat output - my flat isn't even that big. I paid flippin' £30 for it because I was desperate and carried it home from Morrisons a few hours after my boiler had its death warrant issued (always happens in winter, doesn't it)!

No longer stocked.
I'm guessing CPC dug more out of the warehouse, there's 2 in stock showing now.
