cheap cabin heater

anyone have any experience with this heating unit:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Planar-44D-1...-/200987973034

Price seems very good, but worried about installing something that will need to be replaced with a quality webasto or other.

On the other hand, if this unit works -- I'd rather save the 1400 bucks.

If anyone else is using an inexpensive cabin heater, can you advise? Thanks in advance!

The Russians are known the world over for their top notch engineering and manufacturing. What could possibly go wrong?

While our space shuttles have been junked, Russian technology is picking up the slack to get our astronauts back and forth to the space station.

Also, I think they know "cold" much better than we in the US do.

Ah so I thought you were being sarcastic. Should I try this unit? Pass on it? For the purpose of clarity, please just let me know what you truly think. Looks good, or POS?

Reading the guys EBay feedback, dozens of people are happy with what they received.
If is works out you will be a Defender Source hero.
If it fails you will have an entire peanut gallery saying "I told you so".

Agreed. The Russians know cold as well as any Eskimo.
