Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rs08 Great product for 250-350 sq ft
I tested this product for few weeks during NY winter season. I used this as the only heater and not as supplemental heat. Outside weather ranged from 30-45 degrees. I feel this is an excellent product if you want to use for a room between 250-350 sq ft- It keeps the room decent warm under economy setting and really warm under high setting- though high setting will use lot more power. To summarize, if your house or room is 500 sq ft and up, it can be used only as supplemental heat but if your house or room is app 250-350 sq ft this can save you tons of money on the heating bill

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brittany A big fan!
Trying to save money on oil we bought this to heat our livingroom, where we spend most of our time. Our house is pretty open, separated by the staircase. This heater kept us more than warm during our cold Maine winter. We were able to sit on the couch without a blanket, and in tshirts. Having Lupus, this was a big thing for us. This machine is quiet and doesnt get hot at all. Our dog and two cats were able to rub against it with no issues. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by peter Not that great
I got this unit couple of months ago for my condo. You can feel the heat if you sit in front of it, but beyond that I don't think it has an impact. I should mention that the instructions specify that this unit is not meant to be used alone as a source of heating, it should be used to complement an existing heating system for best result, which sort of defeats the purpose of buying it to save on energy cost.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by chucky increased my heating bill 200%
this unit works great until you get your electric bill. i was stunned by the heat it put out. if you aren't concerned about a 200% increase in your electric bill, this is the heater for you. another thing, the unit would shut off with an error code. you would have to unplug it, completely reset it, and it would work fine until the next error code.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jaydee Works good but......
The heater seems to work well. I've only used it about 2 hours so far, but one thing I've noticed is the smell. It seems to put out a smell similar to varnish when it's running. Does anyone else have this happening? Does it go away after the heater runs for awhile? I have it in my kids bedroom and I'm concerned about them breathing in that smell.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CHAD My expectations were met
It has some features that make it more useful. I'm able to lower my thermostat 3 degrees and I place this in my baby's room on energy save mode. I haven't received my energy bill, so I don't know if it's actually saving money, but in theory it should. I'm very pleased with the purchase. I also use it in the living room in the evening.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bunch This heater works beautifully for what I needed.
This small infrared heater belies its size with productivity. It heats about half of my house. The small size makes it fit just about anywhere. Being on wheels makes it easy to move around. Finding the correct temperature with the remotee takes out all the guesswork. All in alll, I am very happy with my heater purchase.
