Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave A very nice unit for the price.
This heating unit works marvels. I use it to heat 400 square feet of house right (Central furnace is out and landlord is taking his sweet time repairing it) now and set it at 80 degrees it keeps that side of the house at between 68 and 72 degrees. I think most people who complain about the display and thermostat's don't understand how it works. If you have it against the wall and the air drawing in has little space to do so the unit will heat up and shut off as the temperature around the unit gets warm rather quickly and it will shutoff as it thinks it has gotten the room warm and toasty, but if you're like me and place it in the doorway to a room and have it pulling air out of another room and blowing into a room the heater works just fine. I currently have it sitting in our hallway pulling air from the family room and it warms the 2 backrooms and bathroom to a nice temp. I plan on buying another unit for the other half of the house =) I also like the fact that it is pretty quiet in comparison to other heaters I have had.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ana Never received a manual and don't know how to work it. Annoying!! Never had such a complicated heater!!
Waste of money!! Don't buy!! Never got a manual and you can't figure out who to work it without the manual, which is no where to be found online anywhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Meem Very dependable.
I bought this last year for use in my 5’x5’ greenhouse. It kept the greenhouse at whatever temperature I set it to—including on sub-zero degree nights. The digital thermostat reads within a degree of my wireless outdoor thermometer that I kept in the greenhouse to monitor it. Just be sure to set the temperature six or seven degrees higher than your desired minimum low.
My only complaint is with the controls. They aren’t very intuitive or user friendly. Other than that, I highly recommend this space heater.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by maria Terrible -- don't buy
I used to own a Maxiheat 1500 watt. Was a bit noisy but had pin-point accuracy in the thermostat. After almost 5 years I had to replace it (was my fault -- was a power surge, didn't have it connected to a surge protector and the mother board blew). I bought the Pelonis yesterday -- have exchanged it already for another one with the same problem -- the thermostat is all over the place making it shut off and NOT come back on, as it misreads the actual temperature in the room. It makes no sense to have a heater with poor thermo control especially if you have paid for "auto-thermostat" function. I am returning it and will go elsewhere for a different heater. DO NOT BUY.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BigdogBTS Thermostat is a joke
Bought the unit because I wanted to be able to set it in a colder room to augument the central air system. I figured I would set it to 74 and let it do it's thing. As soon as the unit kicks on, the entire housing heats up, and the thermostat in the unit jumps from 74 to 80 and shuts everything off. Once the unit cools back down, the entire process starts over again, while the rest of the room doesn't get any noticeably warmer. Why have a thermostat if it's not going to work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Twalf Small heater big value
I have 3 of these heaters 1 for the living room, 1 for the bedroom and 1 for my guest room. These are very quiet and heat extremely well for the price and the size. I also use the fan only mode for white noise when it's too cool for a regular fan and too warm to need heat for the room. The only draw back is it's not very good for temperature control as the temp reading is very irratic. Once the fan goes off the temp goes up 4 to 5 degrees so the room temp reading is not real at that point and takes it quite some time to get back to the actual room temp. It will control the room temp you just have to get used to where to set the temp because it won't reflect what your other thermometers in the house are reading.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Power2Burn The thermostat is innacurate
Like someone said in one of the other reviews, the temperature probe in the unit is placed in a little cut out in the back where the air intake is with no actual air flow going through it. Once the heater starts and becomes heat soaked, the probe starts reading the temperature of the heater housing and not the ambient air temperature. So if you set the heat to 70, it will run for maybe a minute, get the temperature probe up to about 74, and then shut right off leaving the rest of the room cold.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wrfine One of the better prodocts I have bought!
This Heater is quiet and spreads the Heat very well. I have three of them in different rooms for heat in the Winter so furnace isn't working more than it has to!
