Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Basil Another bad experience with Vornado
I should have known better than to select this heater after having TWO Vornado air purifiers fail on me, and then having Vornado's customer service completely ignore me despite the fact that there were years left on the warranty.
Just like the other Vornado products I had (the AC300 and AC500 purifiers), my initial experience was positive. The heater us small and lightweight. It's suitable for small rooms only and not the most powerful, but the longer you have it running the more heat you'll feel. It was adequate for the autumn months. There's also a fan setting. As for the noise level, it's not quiet yet not obnoxiously loud. In fact, I liked the white noise. It has a fast-repsonding automatic shut-off feature so it's kid friendly.
The SRTH's wavy diagonal grill is designed to blow air in multiple directions all at once instead of oscillating. I prefered this design because if a heater is blowing in my direction, especially right after I've turned it on in a really cold room, the last thing I want is for it to turn away and leave me cold every few seconds. At the same time, this heater is not blowing air in only one direction.
How it all went wrong:
A few months after I got it, the heater began acting funny. I would turn it up to the highest setting and it would shut off after 2-3 minutes. Instead of coming back on when it has cooled down (or whatever it needed to do), it stayed off. I'd have to physically turn it to the "Off" position, wait 10 minutes, and try again. This basically relegated me to the lower heat setting and the fan setting. Not cool.
Next, the lower heat setting began malfunctioning. Whenever I turned it on it would fade in and out every few seconds, like it was about to shut off. What good is a heater that will only blow out noncontinuous low heat??? Since the fan was the only thing working properly, I donated this heater and went back to my old faithful Patton Milk-House Utility Heater, which I've had for YEARS and still works like new. It's also cheaper and gets much hotter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ren Power champ!
Needed a small heater for the back bathroom. I've purchased one every year for several years at more than twice this price and they only lasted 1 year and weren't nearly as warm. I've been using this little champ for several months and it's absolutely great! I have no doubt it will last me several years - lots of other reviews on other websites confirm this!
I cannot recommend this little heater more highly!!! Save yourself some money and buy the little guy!

I purchased this heater to add some warmth to our enclosed cabana/ man cave during the short winter months in southeast Louisiana. I've only used it a couple of times but I can honestly say that it does a nice job taking out the chill. I like the fact that it has a fan only and two heater settings.

Consumer Reports ranked this number one in portable heaters. I agree that it is nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Christal Fantastoc Vorado Tower Heater!!
This is by far one of the best tower heaters I have used. I live in a COLD state and it has been getting quite cold here in the evenings. I turn on my Vorado heater and my entire room gets warm. I can fall asleep knowing I am safe using this because it has an auto shut off after 4 hours and it also has a safety shut off it this tips over. I love that the vent is in the front of this. The design is very sleek and looks awesome. I can set this to run on fan only, or set to level 1 or 2 on the heat settings. This is compact and can be taken to any room in the house. I even carry mine to the bathroom when I am taking a shower to keep my bathroom warm. I am completely satisfied with this and I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by j michael PERFECT!
Bought to take the chill out in any one of four bedrooms and the upstairs bathroom. Works great! More often than not, I just use the lower heat setting. Great air movement/distribution and pretty quiet (important in my yoga room}. Timer is convenient...four hours later, shut down. Small, cute. Just ordered another one. Should be here this week.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by keenemarin Pretty darn good!
I didn't know what to expect when starting this up for the first time - its a small, compact heater. The last heater I had owned was an oil based radiator - which took forever to warm up. So, here my expectations were pretty low I guess. This little heater packs a rare punch, it fires up quickly, is effective, and delivers a good amount of heat in a very short time. My uses: Heating a small room / bedroom quickly; just warming up near it; general. Its quite well made, delivers a good experience, and yes, I would recommend this to a friend. I liked it a lot.
