    There are design flaws. NOT Recommended.

    I wish I could give it more stars. But I ended up returning it for the following reasons: - The high setting takes up A LOT of power, so much that it trips my surge protector all the time. - The high setting is the ONLY setting that you can set a custom temperature. You CANNOT run the heater on the low setting with a custom temp. - Every time you shut it off, and turn it back on, it doesn't retain the setting you have (ie, temperature, rotation, etc). You have to push all the necessary buttons to get back to the configuration you want. - The chimes when you press a button are loud, and you can't turn it off. NOT GOOD if you're trying to be a ninja around sleeping babies! I don't recommend this product at all. Sorry.

    At first this heater was great! It worked well, heated the room that I used it for quickly. It is nice to be able to set the temperature that you want the room to be at and remember the temp setting you used. Even with cleaning it/ dusting it off, it starts acting up after a little while. Starts warming up the room more than the temp it's set to. Now it keeps giving us the Error 1 message over and over. Even though we have cleaned it, keep it upright, nothing is around it for 3 feet, it still acts up. Even though it's within the 3 yr warranty, you have to ship it out to a 3rd party and pay $10 for return postage without guarantee that they will fix it. I'd be very hesitant of getting another one from Honeywell.

    Good features

    I'm very pleased with the performance of this unit so far. The oscillating feature really helps to fan the heat out. The LED and digital display on top are informative and you can't beat having a heater with a remote. My only complaint would be that the filter is just a mesh screen and the holes are somewhat large. It will stop hair but I'm not so sure about dust and the fans run loud but not obnoxiously loud. They appear to be similar to PC case cooling fans. In the time it has taken me to write this I can already feel how much warmer my bedroom has become.

    Warm home for the winter

    After using this tower heater for a couple of winters and more currently, I can guarantee that if you have a small to medium sized room, this heater will warm your room up really quickly. The best thing for any lazy people is that there’s a remote control for you to use if you don’t want to get out from your warm comfy place and into the cold. It’s also safe for pets, since my dog likes to sit in front of it all the time. The only thing is, as all tower fans or heaters, there’s a filter which I have to clean each season. Not a bad trade off considering it’s only a quick process, if I must say. Overall, I love this heater and highly recommend this to those who are looking for a heater.

    My apartment has one heating unit and it is directly under the stairs. Since heat rises, my first floor stays at fridge temperature and for that reason my gas heater feels that it needs to keep working until my upstairs is scorching. I bought this heater for my first floor living room and it works great at heating up the room. It is not too loud, although you can hear it working, and really gives off a lot of heat. I love the oscillating feature and the remote control that lets you adjust the settings from across the room. I get really nervous about space heaters but this one doesn't even feel hot to the touch. It was a good investment and is actually helping me save money on my gas heating.

    This heater does exactly what I need it to do! It heats up almost immediately and can heat up my entire bedroom in about 30 mins. I love the timer settings so I don't have to worry about leaving it on when I go to sleep. The only thing I want to warn about is that it beeps very loudly every time I turn it on, off, or change one of the settings. It also has a feature where it is supposed to shut off if it detects something in front of it but the sensor is not very strong so I literally have to almost be touching it for it to recognize something and turn itself off. But overall, a very good little heater!

    This heater is great. It's my second one. It's capable of heating a large open room. The oscillating feature helps greatly. The remote is a nice feature too. I run this heater A LOT. It's a little loud, but like I said it's also capable of heating a large area. My only complaint is that after about 2 years I wore my first one out. However, I contacted the service department and they warranty their product for three years. They sent me a new one! And that's why I bought a second one. I was very happy with their commitment to great customer service

    Good Heater for a small area

    Works great ! Nice slim design that looks appealing in any room. Relatively light and looks great! Has many features that make this a good heater for a small room. It heats up fast, and along with the oscillating fan, it can heat up a small area quickly. I personally don't think it would be beneficial for a larger area, as the fan is not powerful enough to cover distances. The noise level is not bad, however it can be a problem for those who are looking for a relatively quiet unit. The Automatic shut-off motion sensor and timer options are great safety features. Overall, its a great buy for using in a small room/bedroom!

    Faulty Thermostat function

    The main reason I purchased it was for the thermostat function. Once it reaches the desired temperature, it shuts off like it's suppose to, but it never turns back on! This heater is also loud due to the fan. If you put it on a lower fan setting it disables the thermostat. If you are willing to baby sit this heater, and want fast heat, then this is a good heater. If you want a heater to keep you warm while you sleep, or want the comfort of a thermostat function, this is not it.

    Great heater with a small footprint

    We bought this heater for our 29' RV and it works great for the space and doesn't take up much room. It oscillates and has an automatic setting to hold temperature. I give it 4 rather than 5 for 2 reasons: the thermometer never matches the thermometer on the RV's thermostat, it seems to be set lower so you have to set it for a lower temperature than you think you would be comfortable with and second the automatic feature doesn't work when set on low. On low it runs continuously, sometimes you may want it on low to reduce the energy pull if you are running other electronics. I've popped the circuit breaker due to this.

    I was very skeptical when I picked up this heater because it was smaller than expected and very light but I figured I will take it home and try it out. And Oh Boy was I surprised. I have a large living room that opens to a hallway and the kitchen and within 20 minutes my living room was nice and warm. You can set this heater on constant heat or to a desired temperature, you can also set it for a desired amount of hours to run 1,2,4 or 8. The safety shut off when it tips over is a plus and the remote control is a nice addition. I will definitely be buying another for one of the bedrooms.

    Major Heat

    I originally purchased this because my furnace wasn't working and I was skeptical about this little tower being warm enough but it is surprisingly powerful. I carry it around the house with me to use in every room and it heats each one up no matter how large or small the room is. Even though my furnace is fixed I I still use the heater and my house thermostat is set at 68 degrees. There have been many nights when I have to turn it off because it gets so hot. Great investment.

    Good space heater for small space

    The heater is awesome - when the bedroom doors are closed and it’s on high! Otherwise, you’ll need to sit right under it to warm up. I’m from SoCal so we really don’t know “cold” but this heater will get the job done. I love the remote feature but you actually have to point the remote at the sensors which are at the bottom of the heater. The rotation and fan speeds are awesome but it’s definitely not strong enough to warm up large rooms.

    This product is perfect for small areas. I like using this for small areas so I don't have to heat the whole house with the FAU unit. This saves money and wear and tear on the FAU. I would recommend this product to anyone. Futhermore, I like the safety features on the bottom that makes the heater shut off if tipped over by accident.

    Great secondary heater for a garage

    I have a fish room in my garage and needed a secondary heater to balance out the room temps. Got this great little heater and put it by the garage door. Between this and a oil filled heater, it keeps my garage at 77 while set at 77. It's quick to come on and heat up and oscillates to spread out the heat. When it's up to temp it turns off and manages itself. Wish I would have bought 2 so everything matched out there.

    This is my 2nd Honeywell space heater and NEITHER of them lasted over a year!!!!!!!!!!!! I kept getting error messages when it would be on! I thought the first one was defected but NOPE it is the brand! I bumped into it once and got the error message and I understand for the error on that but even when I didn't touch it , it would see error and shut off,sometimes I didn't even have it on and it would say error! So my 2nd one just broke, it didn't even say error, it just died! NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Overall this heats up the room great on high or the low setting. The main issue I have is setting the temp on this in my daughters room to keep her warm in the winter, but not hot. Thinking setting the temp would be the way to go has proven to be questionable. When we set the temp at 72, it will heat up the room to 75 or 76, then shut off. When we go in the room in the morning the temp may read 69 or 70 and not be on. This does not seem to be working properly, but everything else is great with it.

    Bought this because of central heat problems in January. It is warm, very quite for a ceramic heater and seems very safe. The tip sensor is very sensitive to bumps and such but if you let it settle back down it goes back to work. Nice if you have pets. The only minor issue is with the remote. The range on the remote is on the short side plus if the heater is rotating the narrow arc the sensor picks up the remote can be a little tricky. That said I am happy with it.

    For the most part, this heater works very well. I have used it in my lower level (13x20) on the coldest nights when I wanted to have a movie night. It takes a little time to warm the room up enough to take the chill off using the lower setting, so I had to preplan it's use. However after about an hour or so, the room was comfortable. The blue LED lights are a little distracting, but I faced the unit sideways to reduce their effect.. overall a good heater....

    This was a decent heater while it worked. It even came with the remote and everything. The only downfalls I have is that it was used for three months of winter put in storage and then pull back out for this winter that came up and I noticed after a couple of weeks that it just simply died down it wasn't the cord wasn't the outlet or anything it was just the item. I would recommend it if it could stay working
