Its ok. I use it for my office at work. It heats up the room but it does not really extend to the whole room. I bought it because I did want some extra heat for the winter months. It does what I wanted it to do so I'm pretty happy. Performance It does heat up nicely and the half of the room that its on heats up. I wish it had an oscillating option so that maybe the heat would spread throughout the room. Ease of Use Super easy just plug in and turn it on. Durability Seems pretty durable to me. I have had it for a year and really only use it during the winter months but in Cleveland that could be awhile. This past winter was bad so I have had to use it alot more. Design I got it for my office because it was little and colorful so I do like the design. I wish it had an option of turning or oscillating to kind of spread the heat. Safety It does get hot and I am extra paranoid so I would just have my kids not touch it anyway. It has not blown a fuse or caused any other electrical issues so I think its pretty safe.
