    It blows heat right at me when at the desk, which is great! I thought it being so small, and short, and put on floor, I wouldn't feel much, but I was wrong. I like how it can oscillate when needed. It was only used for around 5 days or so, so it didn't effect the electric bill much. On the flip side, only one time did it properly shut off when it reached temperature I put the setting to. The other times I had to shut it off manually, which defeats the point of that setting. The timer I tested shut off properly the few times I tried to use it. I bought it for emergency use, such as if heating shuts off for whatever reason. (Like the reason I 1st bought this - landlady shut off heating for almost a week, to repair old heating, pipes. And it just happened to get freezing cold at that time.) Hopefully this heater will work well in the future, if the need arises. (Heating back on again, so no need to use it again, currently. So I can't say what long term use is like.)

    I am writing this review 62 days after purchase so I have had time to use it enough. This heater works well for providing heat. It heats my bedroom and medium sized living room well. The timers work well. The thermostat functions by putting the heater into standby when the desired temperature is met. The only major issue I have with it is that I rely on the thermostat instead of the high/low on setting. But, it appears to not trigger the heater fan back on until it is 5 degrees below the set temperature. That makes me have to set the temp. higher than what I want so it comes back on sooner/closer to what I desire. But, then it runs until the room has reached the set temperature which is above what I actually want and I get hot. The fall over emergency feature works well. If it tips, it shuts off.

    Dont Waste Your Money!

    First time out the box i plug it in it beeps says E1 comes on goes off says E1 again unplug replug this continues for 20 minutes. NOT one word in the owners manual about what code E1 is.. a quick Google search says its a tip alert? It is sitting on a level wood floor! It finally came on in about 30 minutes and ran and put out heat did the job. Ok second night same thing again unplug replug for 30 minutes i just want to turn the thing on and get heat is that to much to ask for?? Next day returned it got another one and the exact same thing again so i returned this one as well. DO NOT waste your time and money i appreciate the safety aspect but it needs to heat and not beep E1!! This is my first and last Honeywell product!! I wish i could score less than 1 this is -10 easy!!

    I use this in an open office cubicle. It runs extremely quietly and does not disturb my coworkers who sit 12 feet away. The oscillating feature works well to distribute the heat. It has a "hi/lo" feature and also an ability to set the temperature be the degrees. It isn't very intuitive but after a few tries I seem to have found a setting that isn't too hot or cool. The digital display is easy to read and the buttons are self-explanatory. I like the Timer feature so that you never forget to turn it off for the day. I also like that the feature that cuts the machine off immediately if it tips even slightly, to avoid burning the office down.

    Let me tell you something, this little mechanism of a heater is so good that it heats up a 12 x 12 room within the first 10 to 15 minutes. when you set the timer, it heats up the room until the temperature desired but when you leave the timer off it will run all night. I recommend not to leave it on many hours of the day cuz it does heat up very quickly so I recommend not to leave it on too long. Just enough for your room to warm up. Thank you Honeywell.

    Pumps out some heat!

    This little heater really pumps out some heat! Love the auto turn off and temp settings. Very quiet too. We use this to heat our office which is about 270-300 square feet. We are in Florida so most winter days don’t get below the upper 40’s to 50’s and this really warms up the entire room quickly. In colder areas a larger heater would be better for a room that size. Overall I’m very impressed. This is my second Honeywell ceramic heater and neither have given me a single issue.

    I have been using this for a while now. Initially I was thinking to use that in living room to keep it warm but it did work that well. So tried in small room and was effective enough for room keep warm and consume not much of power. Good thing this heater has is timer to set for 1,2, 4 and 8 hours and two modes Hi and Lo heat plus oscillation. I would recommend it for a small room. I was thinking to use some kinda remote switch so bought Wemo insight but once you turn off you have to push the power button on heater but that doesn't seem to be a issue at this price point.

    This compact heater is so easy to use and has multiple options. I love to set it on auto for 8 hours in my sons bedroom on really cold nights since I don’t use any heat in the house as it doesn’t get cold enough to do so. But his room is a little more chilly for some reason so this is perfect! And I got it at a deal or on sale for like $30!! Can’t beat the price with the many options and easy use!

    I bought this heater based on its Consumer Reports Recommended rating - they noted that it's a little loud, but it isn't near as loud as the older Holmes heater it replaced, nor anywhere near as huge! I was pleasantly surprised that such a small heater can do such a great job of keeping my bathroom at exactly the temp I want in the Winter, and the fact that it oscillates is a very strong plus!

    Does Not Work Well

    Like with most of the other reviews that gave this item a 1 or 2 stars rating my heater consistently gives the E1 error code. First time out of the box and getting plugged in the E1 code appeared and since then the heater will not operate more than 5 mins or so (if it even starts) without turning itself off. Unfortunately I preemptively purchased this heater before I really needed it and cannot take it back to the store. Looks like I just wasted my money.

    This Honeywell compact ceramic heater heats my 180 square foot mud room nicely. The control buttons on the top of the unit are intuitive. I recommend the "low" setting, as it provides plenty of heat and pulls less power. The unit will oscillate if you choose, and it has a very useful 1-2-4-8 hour timer. I greatly appreciate the safety feature that it automatically turns off if tipped over. Top also remains cool to the touch so it can be moved. Great little heater, fairly priced!

    We like our room colder, so with the weather being cooler, we did not want to have to use the central heat to warm the whole house when it wasn't necessary. So we purchased this heater for our daughters room...works great! The only thing is that it states that it needs to sit at least 6ft from the wall. So it has to sit almost in the middle of the room. It does have an auto off capability.so if it ever gets knocked over or tilted, it automatically shuts off!

    Great heater for larger room

    I really like this heater because it is pretty quiet and it is cool to the touch. It swivels/oscillating to spread the heat more effectively. The only thing is that it is a little too hot for smaller rooms, like a small bedroom if your going to run it all night. Even at the lowest setting the room feels too hot. So then I would recommend using the timer to control the heater.

    We bought this to go in our daughter's room for bedtime, as her room tends to be the coldest in the house. She started sleeping SO much better. I love that it has a temperature gauge on it, so when the room hits the temperature put in, it will shut off. I also love that it has a timer on it, and will cut off after the number of hours you specify (only 1, 2, 4 and 8 available)

    Bought this for my daughters room to help keep it warm at night worked great the first night and after that had nothing but problems. Kept getting an error code when I caked honneywell they said it was the air filter. Didn't make sense that the air filter had an issue it was brand new. Returned and got a simple and different model and not 1 problem with it.

    This little guy cranks! It has an oscillating option, timer (which is awesome for safety if left on by accident) and a digital temp setting. This heats our 500 sq ft office with no problem but we are in Florida so it only gets in the 40s and 50s here in the winter so it may be better for supplemental heat in colder climates. Very impressed.

    I bought this heater for my mom because she said her room is always cold in the winter.This heater has helped keep her room nice and toasty warm. I have always been cautious of buying portable heaters because of all the horror stories you hear about them starting fires. But they have gotten a lot more safe then they used to be. It has a switch on the bottom that if the unit just tips a little off center it shuts the heater off instantly.

    For starters, it works well as a heater. Gets nice and hot and isn't very loud. The problem is with the way it operates when you set a specific temperature. It will heat up to that temperature then just shut off. You can set the timer to keep it on, but the max is 8 hours so it doesn't work well if you want to use it to warm a room overnight.

    This is my second one. I returned the first one because I kept getting an E1 error that would cause the unit to shut down. I purchased the taller tower before and like it but, my dogs bumped into it causing it to fall over and knocking the fans out of alignment so they made a continuous noise. I got the smaller one because of the lower center of gravity and the 2nd one seems to be working OK

    My only concern in this unit is it does not start automatically once the temperature goes down. If I set it to say 72 deg and it heats the room to the temp and then stops, when the temp goes down further say early morning we have to manually start the unit. I believe it does not have the auto restart functionality. The unit works very well and sufficient for 12X10 room.
