I never write reviews until I am super surprised or super disappointed. I am super surprised here. First, the make is hard plastic and does NOT feel flimsy at all. I have had a similar one before and it still works great. So even if you drop it a couple of times or keep your foot on it, its going to take it easy. Second, I bought this heater to use it at home and I keep it pretty close to me when I use it. I always use the low heat setting (there are three heat settings and one fan setting). I guess there are different watts (500/1000/1500) associated with each heat setting. You won't feel the heat with the low heat setting. But, it does produces hot air at that setting (I tested it by covering it with a blanket with my feet inside the blanket). This setting is good enough for you if you are keeping it close to your bed while you sleep. I do and I feel warm (not hot and sweaty) during the nights which I feel is the perfect setting for you to have a sound sleep. Also, I was not able to sleep with the sunbeam heater as it either produces too hot heat or you have to shut it off in the middle of the night. But, Pelonis was perfect as it produces the right amount of heat and evenly spreads it. I had the heater close to my head and I could feel the warmth in my foot. Third, if you are planning to buy this heater to heat up your room, you should probably have it at the highest heat setting. However, I am not sure whether that would help heating the entire room as I have not tried it before with this heater. But my guess is that it should keep the room warm enough. Fourth, again this heater probably needs to be in its highest heat setting if you are keeping it under your desk. If you are planning to buy it for your office, I would suggest some heaters with much higher watts. But this one does keep your feet warm. I gave my other one to my brother and he says that this is functional and is better than his other heaters at home. Oh, most important, having the heat at the lowest setting does not make you dehydrated, but at the same time keeps you warm. This is probably one important aspect that I will be looking for when I buy a heater. Overall, this heater works great and is a great buy. Buy it!!. You will not regret it!!. NOTE: I just mentioned that I use this everyday during the winter, sometimes fall.
