Question zoomed betta therm

I'm considering buying the Zoomed Betta Therm mini heater for one of my small tanks, but I find that with the zoomed betta products, some are good and some are not so good. Does anyone use this little heater? Does anyone have any good or bad comments about it? Here's the heater that I'm talking about.

I know you can get them from Petsmart. One just opened near me, so I was gonna see if they had any. I think they cost around $15, but I might be wrong. I don't know what other stores would carry them. I think it's a fairly new product.

I've used the Hydor 7.5w mini heater before and liked that one, but there are no stores around here that carry those (I bought mine at a Big Al's in Ontario when I was on vacation last year).

I've heard mixed things about this heater. Some say its really good, others say not very good at all... I guess it just depends.
I've seen them at Big Als, for about $16.00.

On petsmart.com they're $14.99, on sale for $12.99. Of course, that's american, not canadian. $16.99 (assuming that's canadian) online at Big Al's. I need it for a small tank (1.5g), so I don't want to get anything stronger.

I went to the new Petsmart in the city this evening and asked if they had one, and they didn't. After explaining what I was looking for, the fish sales associate got a confused look on her face and told me that she didn't understand why there would be a heater for bettas, since bettas should be kept at room temperature (I do believe 20-22 degrees celsius is what she said, I don't know what that is in farenheit). I replied, "Well, they are tropical fish, so they should be kept around 76-82 farenheit, according to the books I've read". She didn't look impressed...
