Diesel heaters

I am looking closely at installing a Eberspacher or similar hot-air system to my 331. I would love to hear from anyone with a 331 who has done the same, or whose boat came with a heating system fitted. I have seen one (a single aft-cabin lifter) with the unit installed in the cockpit locker, but spoken to another owner whose Eber is behind the cabin panel, adjoining the rudder shaft. Where is best?

On a broader issue, it would be very helpful to have some general experience of such systems, as regards noise, reliability, current drain etc. As far as I can ascertain, there are four makes out there: Eberspacher, Webasto, Wallas and Mikuni, but which are the best?
