    Great heater for a room

    This heater has two heat settings, a timer, and a fan setting. I use the lower heat setting because the other one can really warm up a room, to the point where I dont need a blanket. I love this heater. If it is moved or tipped over it turns off. The heater is cold to the touch which makes it really safe. It's a great buy and I use it all the time. I bought the warranty but I dont think Ill ever use it. It's durable and affordable so give it a try and see if you like it too.

    I absolutely love my little heater. I use it at my work and it does the job. Typically, my work station is bout 60 degrees throughout the entire year. It can get quite chilly in the summer months when I choose to wear a dress and or skirt. I use it on the floor, but this heater is light and small enough that it could be placed anywhere. It has a very modern look to it and produces enough heat if you are right under it. If you are looking to fill an entire room of heat, I would recommend purchasing a larger one. This one is really only good for direct heat.

    Not Hot

    I bought two of these heaters after reading the reviews and seeing that it had an over 4 star rating. However, I've had these heaters for a month now and they fail to heat up the rooms as needed. I have one in my boys room and one in my home office. It takes a few hours for them to get the room even warm enough to be in. I actually leave my heater on all the time in my office just so that I don't have to wait for it to warm up. I'm going to take them back and get something else. Vornado is not the product for me.

    I purchased this heater primarily for my wife, who was always cold no matter how high we set out thermostat. Granted, she was always cold in big open spaces, where it's difficult to contain warm air and on top of that, we have wood floors which contributed to it being cold. Thought this might do the job and keep the entire room warm, but it didn't. In order to feel the heat, you would need to be about 2 feet. Keep in mind that the top of the heater, where the vents are smaller, is usually warmer versus the bottom of the heater.

    Great heater for working from home in basement

    When I need something reliable, I do a ton of research before purchasing. Consumer Reports, and online reviews did not lead me astray this time. Our unfinished basement runs colder than the rest of the house, and for days when I get to work from home, I need some additional heat. It's running right now as I type. I frequently start with it on high heat and then lower it when warm enough. I definitely recommend this heater.

    Short term review - works as advertised

    It's capable of warming a small area. It's kinda loud similar to most electric fans. It's got only high and low settings and fan only. Fan speed cannot be changed but i dont mind. It works best in areas where there is no strong draft. It has a 4 hour timer, but I wish it also has a thermostat setting, but I guess the reason why it doesnt have one it's because it doesn't have to be since it is designed to warm a small area fast.

    We use it to warm up our bedroom on cold nights. It does the job! It's also super safe around children. My daughter is one and like to touch everything. It's safe enough for us to have it on and if she stands in front of it or tries to touch it, it will knock over and stop heating. It's not hot to the touch so we don't worry.

    Good for small room ( literally)

    Honestly a good heater/fan for a small room. I love that it automatically shuts off now the base isn't in contact with a hard surface. The 3hr auto timer is great, but out course has its disadvantage i.e when I have it on b4 bed, it shut off in the middle of the night b4 I get hot, but in the morning when I go shower I have to manually turn it off and give it a few minutes b4 I can turn it on again :-(

    Stopped Working After 1 Week

    After I bought the heater, it would randomly shutoff regardless of whether it was overheating or not (the timer was always disabled). I'd have to physically reset the heater by unplugging it for a few minutes until I hear a clicking sound, and then physically plug it back in. After a while, it just wouldn't turn on at all, rendering the heater a brick. Returned it for a full refund.

    Its small enough that I can place on my desk, but its big enough to see so that I won't tip it over. If it does tip over it automatically stops running so that nothing overheats or possibly burns. I love it best thing I've bought!! Keeps my room warm, sometimes I have to to turn it off because it makes my room extra toasty. Love it!

    I bought this for my daughter's room, which is about 400 sq. ft and it works amazing. It heats up the room fairly quickly and, with all the doors closed, the room and the attached bathroom gets nice and cozy. It also stays cool to the touch even when it has been on all night. Overall I'm very satisfied.

    I bought this because it was a heater and fan in one. We keep it in the bathroom when it's cold in the winter and ues the fan in the summer. Our old unit was a Honeywell and worked very well. This one is just so so. Does not heat or cool the bathroom as well as the Honeywell did.

    Heats the Room Great

    Does a great job heating a 10 x 12 room. I only wish the auto timer feature/shut-off was more convenient. Too many times I come home at night and walk into a well-heated room only to find that nobody has been in there for half the day. The electric company is happy...but I am not.

    Heats quick for the small size. Usually have to turn it off before the optional 4 hr timer goes off. Takes some time if room is freezing, can put it on high, but it will warm on low eventually too for less than half the power. And for the price, great deal.

    Being it carries the Vornado brand name I would have thought this was all that and a bag of chips! It is okay within a closed room, but not hot, just takes the edge off. I do love the automatic off after 4 hours though! Bought for my puppy to stay warm.

    I actually remembered to check consumer's reports for a small appliance, and this was recommended. It's really nice, better than your average little box. The heat spreads out instead of blowing directionally, and it's not just hot. It makes my office pleasantly warm.

    Not to shabby. Bought this to heat a small bathroom during the winter mornings when my girlfriend is getting ready for work. Works very well. We even put it in the bedroom some nights. (Old drafty house) the 4 hour timer is handy to make sure it's not running all night.

    The heater is better than I expected. It heats the whole room even though it is compact. No smells that sometime come with heaters and is quiet. It is just what I was looking for.
