    Great, Simple, Works Well!

    Had one of these little space heaters before, it worked so well we were thinking about ordering a second one for another room in our home. Unfortunately, that one (a slightly different model, but nearly identical) was recalled by Lasko for a plug problem. However, their customer service was great about the recall and they replaced our old heater with a new one (this model). Like the older model, the replacement heater (this model) worked so well, we did end up purchasing a second one after all - and that is what I'm reviewing here (the newer model we purchased). As I mentioned above, it takes up a small footprint, but heats up our bedroom (12' x 13') quite nicely, so we bought ourselves this second one (which sits in our home office) and heats up that space (12' x 17') again quite nicely. These little machines are pretty quiet, they have a timer on them (so in case you are worried about leaving them on while you go to sleep, they will automatically turn off after a set amount of time), and have a neat little feature that measures the temperature in the room to maintain whatever temp you want in the room (set the temp, heater heats to that temp, heater stops, room eventually gets cooler, heater turns back on to reheat). It's cute, it's not bulky and it is quite portable too. Highly recommend!

    It operates quite quietly (fan and rotation)and is not annoying. The rotation is smooth. The remote is a very nice touch and handier than I thought it would be. The LED display is bright, but located on top, so you can't see it from the front of the unit if you are seated. A design flaw, I think. The three warranty is nice. Cobstruction is pretty much all plastic, so I wonder how well the heat grates will stand up over time when the plasticizers evaporate out of the plastic. Nice styling. There is a handle, but someone stopped thinking too soon and there is nothing for your fingers to grip, so you cannot pick it up sercurely with one hand

    I bought two of these heaters. One back in January to use in the FL "winter", and we actually go down into the low 30's for a few weeks! This heater kept me so warm in my big 20'x20' room and in our 35'x 16' room. I took one with me to NC in a cold month and it helped tremendously. I had to turn it off one night because I was so warm. I took it back on the plane and it did get a little bumped around but when I turned it on at home it was completely normal. So it can take a small beating ;) Also helped us save $25+ a month on power bills.

    I researched numerous portable heater and this one was at the top of many lists and I can see why. The heater is a tower style heater, which means it heats evenly around the room, not just at your feet. The temperature stays steady and has a nice easy to read panel on the top of the tower that is easy to reach because it is high off the floor. This heater is also very quiet, which is important because I use it in my home office. I plan on buying another one soon for my basement game room.

    Great space heater with plenty of bonus features. I especially love that it has a remote. Also it's pretty easy to use. I'm no tech genius and even I could figure out how to set the timer without looking up directions. Very happy with this heater. My only minor complaint is that it makes a beeping noise whenever you turn it on or off or change a setting. The beep is actually kinda loud and I wonder if my housemates are disturbed by the noise when I come home late and heat up my room.

    heats rooms quickly

    I like that it can heat a room quickly and that it can sense temperature so that it can kick back on. That being said, it needs your help in this process. It isn't the most accurate with temperature so you'll have to tweak or monitor the room you place it in. I find it's an under instead of over situation. I did find this model to have a good deal of positive research across the web. I own 3 and have bought more for family.

    Of all the heater that I purchased, this brand was the best at the time that I purchased this product. After a few days one of my heater with the same brand suddenly had an issue regarding the buttons. It's not working anymore, good thing there's remote that I can use instead of the push buttons. I hope that the same issue will not happen to this product that I just purchased. If not for that issue, this product serve its purpose.

    It is great to heat one room, we leave it on in our sons nursery overnight. The front doesn't seem to get too hot and the auto temp works well. The only issue is when you turn it on. You need to activate the auto temp feature each time, it does not stay in that mode after you turn it off, so you need to press the + or - to switch to auto each time you turn it on.

    I love this heater, heats up my room within a matter of 10 mins. Also, like the thermostat and how its able to maintain a room temperature. Perfect for the winter nights when the main heater is off. The only bad thing about these heaters is that dust can easily break them so after each season you have to clean it with an air canister, or take them apart and clean it. Good thing they have a 3-year warranty.

    This heater instantly gives off heat as soon as its plugged in and turned on. We sometimes leave it on 24/7 because it gets so cold in our rooms. We are lucky it hasn't died yet, nor has there been any burnt smell. I just wish it could blow a little stronger or maybe a little hotter to heat up our huge living room more quickly. I will definitely buy another one this winter.

    Bought this for my girlfriend who is always cold (shocking, I know) as previously we only had a tiny heater that did not work well in our large living room. She loves it so far - pretty strong, good heat, quiet, remote is great when sitting on the coach, and the oscillating is a nice feature. Have only had it for a short time so only giving it 4 stars as of now.

    This was a great buy. I looked at many different heaters but this was the perfect item. It's a little on the bigger side but it's worth it; Covers the whole room. Remote is a plus and the auto shutoff feature makes it that much more desirable. Worth every penny.

    I bought this heater to replace a broken Lasko that we used for many years. The only reason that one broke is because my daughter kept knocking it over. This heater works great! I love the timer so she can fall asleep warm and I don't have to remember to go back in her room to turn it off.

    This is the second one I buy for different corners of the house. It is so easy to operate and move around. Great to pull inside the bathroom to get a fast warm-up on those cold days without overheating the whole house; and the remote control makes it very convenient to operate from afar.

    Perfect for heating up our bedrooms. Love the timer feature and digital temperature control. It doesn't get too terribly cold here in Texas, but with temps in the 40s and 50s at night this has been perfect and all we need instead of running the furnace!

    This heater did have good reviews and the pricing was very good. Love that we can set the temperature and the oscillating feature keeps any room evenly warm. Quiet running operation. Would definitely recommend this heater for yourself or a gift to someone.

    I bought this to warm my 26 ft rv. Even with winter skirting, I was disappointed that when really cold, it couldn't keep up and I supplemented with propane. I had a larger one that was wonderful, better suited for the space. I was surprised this was so challenged.

    Great product for 15x15 room. Can definitely cut down your central heating for the night time as you going to be in 1 room only. Got a good deal from best buy. For 34.99 ( price match is awesome) doesn't give automatic temp control on low but thats no big deal....

    I've used this to provide additional heat to my daughter's bedroom. The thermostat function is nice. Remote is also nice. Moves a good volume of air and is relatively quiet. Very good performance for the price.

    For something so small and budget friendly, it heats up my kitchen fairly quickly and even better than the $150 product i purchased elsewhere. In fact i really liked it that i gave the 1 year old heater i had to my mother and bought another one of these for my bedroom.
