This unit gives you instant heat, no waiting for it to warm up etc. Its light, very portable and can be adjusted. No open heating elements so its safe. Yes it is bright since its a bulb system, but that is the beauty of the unit, as other units with heating elements get hot, the housing on this stays cool. For people with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) the brightness might help. For 800 watts you get allot of heat because of the parabolic dish.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by User Very Nice radiant heat
Silent and effective under my desk.
Larger than I expected but the large reflector makes for more even heat. Points horizontal, unlike most others, so it warms your feet on the floor.
No thermostat. It's high, low, or off continuously, but that's what I wanted. 400W 'low' setting is plenty warm. I kind of wish it had a 200W setting.
I wild guess it's about 100 lumens of visible light, warm orange color.

Starts warming quickly with a moderate amount of heat. Since its based on a Halogen bulb, it puts out a lot of visible light so if you're facing the heater, it will tend to blind you. Not a good choice if you're trying to watch TV. However, if you need some extra light and can place it to your back or side, it can be beneficial.

The infrared radiant heat is a great way to keep yourself warm without having the whole house heated by a furnace. It's portable so I can move it easily around to areas like the bathroom in the morning when getting dressed tends to put more heat at a premium. Love it!

Even though this heater does a good job at heating up small areas, the light it radiates is blinding and uncomfortable to have in areas of the house that you frequent a lot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eddy this product is great for warming an area
The heater is very efficient and easy to use. Haven't had a power bill since we received he heater. Will be interested in seeing what change in the cost for using it will be.
