Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Excellent little heater.
This little heater provides an impressive amount of heat nearly instantly. The fan is very quite, as is the oscillation function. Controls are easy to use and the auto-off safety will activate even if you are just moving it while its running (it starts right up again when you set it down).
Some reviewers may have expected this heater to do more than it was designed for. It is a small area heater. The fan does not supply high velocity air flow, instead it provides a light warming breeze. You need to be within about 6 feet from the front panel to feel the heat directly, but it is a suprising amount of warmth for it's size and it will heat up a small room quicker than the same sized electric coil heater while using less energy to boot.
The heaters 2 levels of adjustment are produced by increasing the temperature of the element only. There is only one fan speed. Also, the fan cannot be operated without the heater, so it will not work as a cooling fan in the summer months.
There are heaters out there that have many functions that this one does not have. It is a basic heater that does just what it says it will do, and does it well. If you need more than what it offers, there are many other brands that will supply those needs. Just be ready to pay significantly more. But be aware of this fact: 1500w of heating produces 5200 Btu's whether it's from a $30 unit or a $300 unit. 1500 watts is 1500 watts. Doing it efficiently is the key and ceramic does it best.

Worked great while it was working. Quiet and gave off a lot of heat. The thermostat worked well. But after less than a year the fan quit. The rest of the appliance works fine but of course it's useless if it doesn't blow air over the heating element.

Purchased to heat and dehumidify an outdoor shed where wet things (SCUBA gear) are regularly stored. Does a nice job for the intended function.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Suz1234 This is a wonderful heater.
I bought 4 of these oscillating Warmwave heaters and love them. They can quickly concentrate heat on me at my desk or in the kitchen. Therefore, even when they are located in a big room, I don't have to wait for the entire room to heat up. They are much safer than a quartz heater, so I can place one close to me and walk away temporarily. Furthermore, when one new heater didn't heat as well as the others, Home Depot was very nice about exchanging it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Csteu I have bought two and am very happy with both.
I bought one in Sept and am very statisfied. When I needed another space heater I purchased a second because it is a great deal for the price and the effectiveness of the heater.
