Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kristoff Doesn't push a lot of air
I own a Vornado fan, and that thing puts out a LOT of air. It's a little smaller than this heater. I was expecting similar results. Well, I was disappointed. It works, yes, but it's not what I was expecting at all. The whole unit is metal, which is good. The two different heat settings only change how many coils are being used and doesn't increase airflow at all. With that said, this does keep the second floor of my 1942 bungalow heated sufficiently so far, although it takes a while to get to that point.
In all, this isn't what I expected. With a name like Vornado, I thought this was going to push a lot more air. It's quiet, but I wasn't expecting quiet.

I read reviews regarding the [lack of] "heat" output of this unit and almost decided against it. However, I went ahead and ordered it because it was the type I wanted; (fan forced air with remote control). It's perfect for our master ensuite. The heat output is not "hot"...it's more like the air that comes out of a central HVAC register/vent. We had a "ceramic" heater before this, and the heat from the unit was hot, but it came out of the front of the unit and went straight up to the ceiling. So, the ceiling-level was warm, but the floor-level was cold. I wanted a more "uniform/even" heating, and this unit does just that. The fan forced air circulates the air in the room (without a breeze) such that the room is evenly heated from top to bottom. It's not the "prettiest" unit, but it is sturdy, and performs exactly as described. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dina Heats a chilly room quietly
I bought this Vornado Vortex heater model for a chilly bedroom. It works wonderfully! It is very quiet. The heat modes are fan (for just air flow), low & high heat. The low heat usually suffices. The remote comes with a circular, flat battery. You will need a knife point to unscrew the tiny screw at the back, where you insert the battery. I am thinking of buying another one. This is a great product! It gives the room temp & you can put it on the temp at which you want the room to be; it keeps that temp consistently. It is lightweight & compact, easy to maneuver. You have the buttons on the top of the machine or you can use the remote. I love this heater!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Realproperty1 Still not certain
I found this item highly rated by Consumer Reports and gave it as a gift. It failed in less than two weeks. Home Depot quickly offered to refund or replace the item 5 stars to Home Depot, I felt I may have received the rare "lemon" in he lot so I opted to replace the item. In fairness I should give it no stars because it has not proved / disproved it's worth but not given the option of no rating I give it a qualified one star with the hope that the replacement works and lasts as Consumer Reports says it will.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OPAL123 Excellent Heater
The heater arrived just in time as we were experiencing a cold snap in Phoenix. It is very easy to use and it stays cool to the touch while heating the room. One must only be aware of changing the fan speed when turning it on so it will not just circulate the cool room air but start to heat. I would recommend this heater. The fan is quiet. Although it's light weight and easy to pick up it would be nice to have a different hand hold. My fingers don't fit in the slot used to lift it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Annoyed Misleading reviews- Terrible product
I bought this product after reading many good reviews. I was so disappointed after receiving it - I will be returning it tomorrow. The fan emits minimal heat. Laying on my bed about two feet away from the fan all I can feel is a faint cold air stream. Do your self a favor and order a different heater.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Retiree Not Durable, and Not Worth Even the Sale Price
Unfortunately, I bought two of these heaters, bot of which lasted less than two months before conking out.
Fortunately, they were on sale, so I didn't waste as much money had they been full price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SBKid Defective Product
The heater worked for about a week and then the thermostat quit making it useless. I called Vornado and they agreed to send another unit. Overall rating is 2 stars because of the prompt service from Vornado.
