This space heater has done a great job for a room in our house that doesn't get much heat. You can set what you want the temperature to be at and when it gets to the heat it turns itself off. It also can rotate back and forth to distribute the heat evenly throughout the room which is nice. Or you can make it so it is stationary as well! I didn't like how it was a little noisy at night. It was harder to go to sleep some times when it was one, but not too bad. I always worry a little having a heater on all night. So if I was trying to warm up a room before somebody came over I would just set it at the temperature it needed to be at and then warm it up before they went to bed. This heater is pretty easy to use, very basic and not confusing at all. Overall I would recommend this heater. Performance It performs pretty well. Ease of Use Very easy to use. Basic buttons! Durability Pretty durable. It has worked well for me for a couple years now! Design The design is fine, nothing too stylish. Safety I think its pretty safe because it will turn off after it reaches its desired temp. But I always worry about running any heater all night.
