This heater is great because it is low profile and easy to tuck away in a corner and have it be barely noticed. It is truly silent as well. However, I got it for my office which is approximately 10x10 I have the heater on full blast all day with the door closed and it definatley warms it up but at no point do I need to turn it down. So I guess my bottom line is that its a great heater but best for smaller rooms.
I have a very large bathroom and wanted this heater for that area. When I opened the package, the first thing it said on the box was "not for use in the bathroom." That wasn't listed in the O description. However, since my bathroom is very large, I decided it would be safe to use. That said, this heater is nice in the fact that it is very thin and provides ample room to walk by, however, I wouldn't recommend this if you have children. Even though it has a safety off if it falls over, it just doesn't seem very stable. With the very small wheels and the way it is designed it is somewhat wobbly. I have dogs that I won't let around it. Also, the heater puts out some heat, but you need to be standing about on top of it to really feel it. I've even put it in my large closet while I'm dressing and it's the same, you have to be right on top of it to feel the heat and it doesn't really seem to take the chill off the room. I've used it for a few months before I have written this review to give it a good try. At first I had thought about returning it to O, but with the shipping costs decided just to keep it. I use it, but again, you have to be right on top of it and I feel safe enough for myself to do that.
Works well and does not seem to use much electricity. Great for a quick warmup on a chilly morning.

I was worried this product would prove to be flimsy in person, considering it's frame is plastic. But don't worry, it's durable and surprisingly compact for the warmth it generates - which is key to this particular item: it generates or radiates heat - no fan blower. So if you're looking for something to produced a forced air effect, this isn't it. But if you want something that radiates warmth over a short time, this is it. Makes no noise really and seems to be perfect for the bedroom (a source that needs a little extra warmth over night for me!). I'm very happy with it!

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's well constructed and compact and relatively light for what you would expect for a radiant heater.

The heater is very thin and light weight....easy to move around and put out of the way when not in use. It gives off a good amount of heat....perfect for my office. The best part is that it is absolutely silent. Between the buzzing of flourescent bulbs and the humming of computers this is a real plus.
I purchased this product to heat my workshop which is about 250 sq ft. The area is insulated but on a slab foundation. The unit ran for 3 hours and the room never reached above 60 degrees. This product would be great as an additional heater for a room but not as a main heat source.
I bought this heater when I was living in an old, drafty farmhouse and it is fantastic! Even though I've moved into a new house, I still use it all the time. It keeps my room toasty warm, is silent and doesn't use that much energy. I wheel it around from room to room when I need it and it has a few settings- though I tend to always have it on high.
I purchased this heater after moving to a new apartment that didn't retain heat well. The window heating units are very loud, so I was looking for something quiet. This heater has been wonderful. It is completely silent, sleek and unobtrusive in its looks, and lightweight for moving from room to room. It emits a steady heat that isn't super powerful, but keeps a good sized room at a comfortable temperature. I would definitely recommend it!
I bought this for my son for Christmas. He LOVES it. His room is a good sized room and it heats the room so its all warm and toasty.Before the heater you could practically see your breath in there.Highly recommend this heater. The biggest plus...It's super quiet!
I just ordered a second heater for another room as I am so happy with the performance. It uses very little power. It is a gentle heat - so don't expect it to blast heat out like a furnace. It is amazing that what seems like so little heat really does keep the room quite comfortable. My primary heat source is a wood stove and this heater takes the chill off and keeps the house comfortable at night when the fire goes out. I am very pleased with this item.
i recently purchased three of these heaters for an office. so far, i have only needed to use one because fo the amount of heat it puts off. i have people that have already offered to buy the units not being used.extremely quiet and looks good.
Be told: This is not something that will heat a large room up quickly, but it is good looking and efficient for its purpose. It does not circulate the heat (hence, how it can be silent), so its use is limited to small areas. I bought it to kill the chill in my master bedroom. I have 4 large (and old) windows in my room. While the heater does not heat my room to summer-like temperatures (although maybe it would if I left it on all day), it is successful in helping me maintain a non-frigid temp, which is really what is important. Works great in the bathroom!
I purchased this to be used as an auxiliary heater in the canvas-enclosed cockpit of my boat. The narrow footprint is perfect for the tight confined area and it looks great. Although this is not recommended by the manufacturer for use outside, it sufficiently warms the non-insulated area of the boat and draws little power from the generator. If you want ¿blasting heat¿, this would not be the model to choose. All features worked as advertised.
