We purchased this space heater a little over a year ago to heat a fairly small media room that was perpetually chilly. This heater does an excellent job heating the room fairly quickly. The settings are easy to use and convenient. The device itself is not too noisy, but makes enough noise that we prefer to shut it off when we start to watch a movie in the room. As for larger rooms, the heater does alright. I try to keep it pointed towards the area we use the most in the room and it works very well for us. The remote control is a nice bonus and means that we can turn off or adjust the device from a distance as desired when watching a movie.
