Rated 5 out of 5★ by BobbyB sturdy metal with pleasing design I was surprised that this unit is sturdy, quality metal construction and attractive.Perfect for taking the chill off my 15 x 17 bedroom or 22 x 20 family room without having to engage the costly heat pump.The controls and indicators are especially satisfactory. The room temperature and mode of operation remain visible after the TVH is powered on.Compared to my Vornado iControl this TVH 500 is noticibly noisier. That said, I liked this model so much that I immediately ordered another one. 12/23/2011
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Suburban Good but noisy. I bought this heater last month (S/N: Aug11 - 10472). It is the second TVH 500 Heater I bought [the first was purchased in 2008 (S/N: Aug07 - 14294)]. Although I like both of these heaters, the newer one is much noisier than the older one. Not sure why the difference. 01/02/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by curmudgeon Define what you're looking for 1st I purchased this product to quickly heat an exercise room in by basement. And I wanted the remote so I could turn the unit ON from the top of the stairs. Results? Well.....I would turn the unit on about 10 minutes before exercising. Because the heated air coming out is not HOT, I was initially disappointed. Comparing it to a ceramic heater (cheaper, mind you) I had been using, well the ceramic heater made the area around the unit feel much warmer than the Vornado. But the Vornado, while throwing out air that was less warm, distributed the warmth much better. It would be excellent as a long term use room heater rather than a quick chill killer and I was more looking for a quick chill killer. Should note: As a room heater it is very quiet, and pretty draft-lessOnly real disappointment is the remote. It's useless. You have to be within 6 feet of the heater for it to work, so I can't use it from the top-of-the-stairs, the ONLY reason why I didn't buy a cheaper unit. 03/13/2013
