We purchased this heater as one of the most inexpensive we could find in an emergency when we lost heat in our home and just needed something as a temporary fix while we waited to get the central unit fixed. I like this heater so much I've kept it in my office for chilly mornings and evenings when I just need a little extra burst of heat. What I really like is the features- for one, if it turns over, etc, there is a switch on the bottom that automatically shuts the heater off. Even though these aren't a huge fire hazzard, the switch on the bottom gave me a tremendous peace of mine in putting this heater in my daughter's room at night. Also the settings are super-easy to understand and use with no complicated thermostats or parts to go wrong. For the price range, I can't imagine a better little heater that is simpler to operate or heats up an entire room any better. I am extremely pleased with this purchase and would buy another in a heartbeat if we needed one.
