      Typical Vornado Quality, Good Heater

      I am a Vornado fanboy. I have many of fans... stand fans, floor fans, personal fans etc. This was to replace a cheap "off brand" similar featured, sized and format heater I had been using. The Vornado is much, much quieter, it heats very well and somehow, magically seems to heat a much bigger area. The best way to describe the difference is my previous tower heater, would provide the heat directly in front of it and in a very shallow cone of warmth. The Vornado seems to heat a much larger area with no particular hot spot. My gripes are twofold.. First, I don't much care for the way they implemented the touch controls. I would have preferred buttons that provide tactile feedback so you know you have pressed it and you know exactly where to put you finger to affect a change. Second once the heater reaches your desired set temperature... it does not simply shut off. The fan will keep running, albeit and a very slow speed, but basically it is blowing cold (non heated) air during this time. My logic tells me its doing that to keep the temp where you set it and achieve that whole magical heat the area not an object type deal, but its still a bit odd and I would like a choice not to have it do that. The cool air deal is the only reason I did not give this 5 stars. Even sooo I love the product, it easily replaced my previous model (that I know use in our bathroom) and I think it heats much more evenly and smooth if that makes sense. Oh yeah.. it looks good to :)

      Noisy, not overly hot, disappointing

      I don't know if I simply got a lemon, but this heater was very disappointing. My wife and I have been big fans (pun intended) of Vornado products for many years, and their reputation factored heavily in my decision to purchase this heater. It was a bit pricey, but I figured I would be getting my money's worth. Unfortunately I was wrong. The heater looks impressive enough, although it was a bit smaller than I had expected when I got it home and compared it to the other heaters we already owned and used in other rooms. I wanted this heater for our living room, thinking it would be more effective to use a single heater instead of trying to heat half of the house for the one room. Sadly, we decided within a day of plugging this heater in the first time that it wasn't going to work for us. For a retail price of $129.99 I expect a tower heater to be quiet enough that I don't really pay attention to it. This was not the case with the ATH1, as it rattled persistently along with a regular humming noise. To go along with the disappointing noise level, we found that the heater had little effect on the temp in our living room. It did not seem to matter how high we set the temperature on the ATH1 either. The room is large (~18x16) but not huge by my standards; I wouldn't consider it a "great room" for example. By comparison, the several years old Lasko tower heater that we brought from a different room did effectively heat the same room, so that was the last straw for the Vornado ATH1. I hope other folks have better luck with the ATH1 if they choose it; frankly, this experience has shaken our confidence in Vornado going forward.

      Does the job

      I have tried for years to get a heater that worked as advertised. OK, I wasn't wiling to spend as much as this one costs. Wasted more than this one cost on junk heaters. This one does the job and has been worth every cent. I live in a bi-level house and use this heater in the coldest room, a room that faces the prevailing winds. When I get up in the morning I take the chill out of the entire house with the furnace. After doing so, I turn the thermostat way back and use the heater to heat the room I spend most of my time in, the aforementioned coldest room in the house. This past winter has been extremely cold and this heater has done a fantastic job. Not only does it heat the room in short order it holds the temperature nice and even.

      I bought this Vornado unti at the same time as the Crane - Ceramic Tower Heater - Black Model: EE-8079SKU: 1366063. At $40 cheaper the Crane completely dominates the Vornado. The Crane produces HOT air on HI (1500 watts) while the Vornado blows warm air on HI (1500 watts). And that's checking it after 5 minutes on and 30 minutes on. Additionally the Vornado is noisier and even has a vibration rattle if it isn't footed evenly on the floor. The Crane is better constructed (very solid and attractive# and has a better features, like oscillation and a remote control which allows you to set time (up to 12 hours). Once the Crane unit got the room to 68 it shut off and was easily able to maintain that setting for the 12 hour period, while the Vornado kept running!

      Doesn't heat much at all

      Very disappointing especially since you'll find good reviews in some places, specifically consumer reports. Didn't really heat much at all for us, maybe in a really small room with the door closed it would be different but I can't imagine so. And this was used in May, not the dead of winter. Got a great deal on it here on clearance but had to return it. Really disappointed in the Vornado brand, do not buy this. Bestbuy service was excellent, though!

      The reviews I read were not that high, but I decided to try it. I opened the box, took it out, plugged it in, and it was very quiet while it heated up my kitchen. When I turn it off, the cool down is VERY quick. I am only on day 2 with it...but I like it so far. People need to realize that once you turn off a space heater, it MUST cool down!!! That means blowing air as it cools, and that air can be cool!!!

      I thought this to be a very useful gadget - to keep near me when I am working in my home-office. Would save energy as I do not have to heat the whole home. It was not to be - as I barely felt the heat coming out of it - and had slight burning smell (maybe it was new?) Nonetheless, after a week or so, it did not change much so I had to return it.
