We bought this little heater for our son's bedroom - we don't have any ductwork upstairs, so it can get pretty cool up there. His room is nice and toasty when you let it run a while before bedtime. It runs very quietly, so it doesn't wake him up if it kicks on in the middle of the night. We really like that it does not get hot at all (even when it's been running a while), so we feel very safe having it with our VERY curious 1-year-old.
However, we tried it out in our living room, and it didn't really seem to bring the temperature up at all. (We have a open floor plan downstairs.) I just don't think it's powerful enough to heat more than a medium-sized room.
It is a very small heater - only a foot tall, so it doesn't seem like it's in the way. That being said, we expected something a little bigger for the $40. (We failed to note the dimensions in the product specs.)
The one thing I really hate is that the cord is VERY short - only 20 inches. Yet the labeling all over the box and manual says DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD, and to keep at least 3 feet from combustible materials. (Do you see the dilemma?) However, when reading the complete manual, it does specify that if you MUST, you can use a 14 AWG/1875 watt cord.
Overall, we've been pleased with this heater, but we've only used it the first part of one winter. The 3-year warranty was another reason we chose this one over the others.
