    Total Junk

    Got this brand new from the store, took it home and placed on my desk, first off it does looks nice, says it's made in Kansas but the Chinese writing all over the packaging suggest otherwise. Once plug in, the heating control knob came off, not enough clue under the cover. Then the actual temperature control button id just poor and cheap, it tends to moves past the high/low setting so you have no idea what it is actually set too. The fan inside the unit is super quite, which is nice until you realize that the heat travels about 2 inches away from the unit, which results in total he dissipation before it ever reaches you, in turn due to the poor fan the unit get hot and cuts out because it thinks it's over heating. I have to be honest and say, maybe I had a faulty unit, but looking at the build quality I would say even if it worked better, I would have still returned it due to cheap materials and poor build quality. Avoid. I endued up with a Honeywell, seems to be much better although much nosier !!

    Great Little Heater & Stylish Too!

    My wife needed a small space heater for her office and because she is a fashionista, I knew it couldn't just be any old space heater. This one does a great job and looks great doing it. I knocked one star off because she does wish it had more settings than just low and high, low just never seems to do it for her, and high gets the place just a little too toasty. Also, she forgot to turn it off one night (I knew this would happen so that is why I got a heater with a lot of safety features) but even though it got really hot in her office, it never shut off so I'm not sure what its threshold is to turn off. It did turn off when she accidentally knocked it over, so that works.

    Great low-power heater at 375w for a small room

    I bought this heater with two things in mind. 1. I needed a heater that was low-energy and not 1500 watts like all the rest. 2. I only needed it to heat up my bedroom. I'm pleased to say that operating at 375 watts on low mode, the heater does a great job. Even on days where it was sub-zero outside, the little thing managed to keep things toasty. Keep in mind that this heater isn't designed for a large room, nor is it designed to quickly heat things up. It isn't even good to sit in-front of like you would a fireplace. All it does it slowly heat up a room and then keep it warm.

    I ordered one from BESTBUY on the Oct 9th for my office and it made me want to buy another one for my bedroom. This is, I believe, a very quite and safe heater with a great heating ability. It is not like a heater that makes super hot only around it. It generates heat and spreads the heat with the vortex fan in it throughout the whole room. It has a sensor on the bottom surface so it will be automatically turned off when you move it around or drop it.

    Great styling, but.......

    Admittedly, I was attracted to this portable heater because of the styling. There were no reviews since this is a new model. The first time I plugged it in on the high setting, within 5 minutes it overheated and turned off automatically. I waited about 15 minutes and then turned it on using the low setting and it operated properly. I tried the high setting again and it turned my bathroom lights off. Will be returning.

    Bought this thinking that with the Vernado brand I would get that same kinda quality, looks and design its a great job but to actually do the job heating it was disappointing at best. I will be returning and going with another space heater for the same price.

    I thought is might be very cumbersome but it's not. It fits under my desk and no one knows it's there....and the most important part is that it's very, very quiet....I love how small and compact and noise free it is for the money I paid for it.

    The temperature in my office can be uneven int he winter, so this is the perfect way to warm up. I love the auto-shutoff timer too, one less thing to worry about when I go home. Will heat up a room very quickly and it looks nice too.

    Success with variances

    I live in an apartment and in a room that's about 12x12x8 ft this heater kept the whole room warm even on its low setting. If you put this in an area exceeding that along with open doors it will only keep whatever is directly in front of it warm.

    Within a few days of purchase, this started to fall apart (loose dial not working). I returned it and got another model instead: Honeywell - Digital Fan-Forced Heater - Black. That one I recommend. But stay away from this one!

    I love the brand, but this heater does not work. It worked for about three minutes, shut off, and I can't get it to heat up. It's in a well ventilated area, but still shuts off and will not heat.

    unit works well as a part time space heater. Leaving it on for hours on ends results in it popping its internal breaker, and needing to be reset. But overall for the price its a nice and simply laid out item.

    Purchased this for one of my rooms. It heats up the whole room in about 20 minutes on low setting. It has a shut off feature if it gets tipped over too.

    Keeps my office warm, but not too hot. Started making scraping noises a few weeks after purchase. Was going to return, but noises stopped after a few days.

    I bought it for my mom. I asked her if she liked it and she basically said it was okay. She did not use it for a long period of time because the weather warmed up.

    I like the full metal exterior of this model---doesn't look as cheap as the plastic models and easier to wipe off.
