Review of The Horton

You get what you pay for

I run a generic Chinese product and also run a European product from Charnwood.

In short, it does the job but not up to the same standard as the Charnwood product. It claims to be CE rated but two of the CE benchmark tests, it could not achieve. It claims to bee 80% efficient which is impossible given the fact that one can not easily regulate the air flow. All in all, it is only 'ok' but then it is half the cost of the European equivalent.
