    I liked the bottom feed that my ESW 55-SHP10 stove had and I liked the control options on the Harman. Also heard that the cleaning was easier. Turned out to be true. The glass stays clean longer than my other stoves and it seems to be built well. Empty the ash pan every 6 weeks or so... Had the P43 since last October (2012) and we love it!

    My wife thought it looked pretty, and she said the P serious looked like a toilet...form > function as far as she is concerned. Doesn't compute with me, but I was also blessed with an XY chromosome.

    Reputation, bottom feed, less daily maintenance, feedback from others and a nearby dealer that has been in operation for a long time that took the time to answer all my questions and hopefully long term support.

    Found a good package deal after did research. Needed a good multifuel that didn't need daily upkeep from a longstanding company that was probably going to be around awhile more. Four of the key components can be had from non Harman sources. Smart stove with ESP.

    Like others have stated, reputation and the insert was the only that would fit my weird fireplace opening. Happy as can be.

    Looks, heat output, bottom feed (got tired of the clinking pellets dropping in my Quad 1000), decent size hopper (60lbs), pretty easy to clean, nice looking fire when it is running and when not the mirrored glass is a nice touch. It also has the "old fashioned" look.

    For me it was the bottom feed and overall construction . . . for Madame DeFarge it was its looks.

    Great Reputation and the fact that it doesn't need as much cleaning as others.

    They didn't offer me any fig newtons. Must have been a limited time promotion.
