What do you guys think of these [URL="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009EDGTXG/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B009EDGTXG&linkCode=as2&tag=ecorenovorg-20"]low cost water heaters[/URL]?

The Good: At $225 they are even cheaper than a tank water heater!! Can use standard B vent, no expensive SS venting required. Works with 1/2" gas lines. Igniter runs off batteries, no electrical hookup required. Simple design, no electronic controls or inducer motors. Doesn't look like it needs a drain connection.

The Bad: Users complain poor temp regulation and questionable support after the sale. Efficiency isn't rated as high as more expensive models.
