Perplexed by the wide variety of strong opinions on this product, I decided to take a chance and purchase two of these small Optimus heaters while they were on sale. I'm glad I did. I am delighted with their performance: they are precisely what I needed to supplement my central heat on cold days. Placed next to the drafty windows in my 600-square-foot apartment, these little heaters keep the chill away without overheating the area. The safety shut-off is very effective, as well. Even if you attempt to re-position the heater while it's operating, this safety feature will shut the unit OFF until it is back on a solid, level surface. Two observations: first, the "fan" feature doesn't seem to be particularly effective (translation: I won't count on it to keep me cool next summer); and in addition, I'd have to caution that if you want a heater to keep a very cold area warm, you need to choose a different model. For just light duty in a small area, however, these heaters fit the bill perfectly.
