Great for office
November 13, 2017
I’ve only used the heater for a week, but I really like it. I’m in a small office that is so quiet, you really can hear a pin drop. Initially I purchased a small, ceramic heater from Walmart. It didn’t sound that loud when I tested it at home but when I used it in the office, it was super loud. I couldn’t believe such a small heater could make such a loud noise. I then purchased the Vornado. The Vornado is NOT whisper quiet, but the noise isn’t bad. It’s more of a white, background noise. I keep it under my desk. It produces enough heat to keep me comfortable without burning my legs and so far it hasn’t tripped the circuit breaker.
Purchased for small office, works great and is quiet.

I bought this for my office which feels like a meat freezer most of the day. It works really well and is relatively quiet. I like that it has two heat settings as well as a fan only setting. There is a little "foot" that will turn the heater off if it gets knocked over or picked up, which is nice for safety. The design is modern, stays clean and goes with most office decor.
amazing product :D
January 2, 2016
Bought this as a gift for Christmas. Person loved it. It's super simple to use, not too big so it doesn't take up a lot of space, and it heats up your room or hallway very fast and leaves you nice and cozy :) only thing I wish it did was oscillate, but that's not too big of a deal. I'd recommend this to someone who gets cold a lot or if you have a cold room that needs some warmth :) and it doesn't use a lot of electricity so it's great
the best 40 bucks I've spent in years
February 13, 2015
First thing I wanna say is wow. This little thing is amazing. I had my doubts about buying this product, but said screw it and purchased anyway because of the affordable price, and boy was I glad I did. I use this heater in my bedroom because it's where I stay the most. I feel there is no need to heat entire house when I am only in one spot 90% of my time.Pros:1. It's small and very portable.2. It has a safety feature on the bottom of the unit that shuts the unit off completely if tipped over, or comes detached from the floor.3. It has a high and low setting. Both work very well.4. Great for small rooms such as bedrooms, offices, etc.5. It has a fan setting.6. It's affordable.Cons:1. It blows out a smelly odor when cut on for the first time, but the odor stops after a few mins.2. No thermostat or auto setting.3. It has a 4 hour timer. This can be a good or bad thing depending on your preference.Conclusion:If you're looking for something to heat a small room, then I highly recommend this product. Takes about 10 to 20 minutes to heat up a small room. If you're looking for something to heat your entire house, then it's probably not gonna happen. Does it get the job done? Yes. All in all, this is an amazing product for the money spent. You no longer will have to clinch onto a blanket for dear life once this baby is plugged up. I highly recommend this product if you're looking for something small, affordable, and of good quality. Gotcha one now and don't think twice. You will not regret it.
Simply Amazing

This really works. I live in the Mid West and have a 12' X 16' bedroom with floor to ceiling glass on one of my walls. Needless to say my bedroom gets pretty chilly in the winter. I love this little heater because I can set the heat on my home thermostat to 68F, close my bedroom door, turn this on and get really toaster without having an insane energy bill. It takes a little getting use to at first because the air it pushes out is not super hot like regular space heaters but somehow after about 10 minutes you notice that don't really need that blanket you were clutching for dear life after all.The other plus is that it is small with a clean design. It blends into the background so well that I don't feel the need to put it away when I am not using it.
This heater has changed our lives (literally)
February 21, 2014
My wife and I live in an apartment with very little heat, over which we have no control. We were sleeping in multiple layers of clothes and multiple blankets during the cold winter nights, and we were still freezing. I'm convinced the constant shivering made us sick.This little thing changed everything. It's barely over one foot tall, but our bedroom became cozy within minutes. The smell that other reviewers have complained about is there, but we've stopped noticing it at this point. Personally I think the odor has gotten less strong over time.We liked it so much we bought another one right away. It's best for a small room, but we've even been using it in the biggest room in the apartment and it still makes the room feel cozy. Plus, it takes up hardly any space, and has two automatic safety settings that make us feel more than secure that we will not set our home on fire. (Its well ventilated so it barely gets hot anyway.)Highly recommended!

best we have ever had. just watch the video it really works
January 5, 2017
great heater I am about to turn it off as I write this because my feet are sweaty! my room is poorly insulated and the winter gets pretty cold about 30 degrees. works very well. I actually had bought the 140 dollar model about a year ago when the heater in our apartment went out. it heated the kitchen and the living room. so I figured why not buy it again. the only difference between this one and the 140 dollar one is that it the touch screen the remote and the thermometer. also the more expensive model stops at the temperature you set it at but I don't mind getting up. the power is the same though.
Keeps you warm!
January 16, 2015
Lots of warmth and very little noise. I hate to call the sound it makes noise as it's extremely quiet. We are under construction, and wood and plastic separates the livable space from the unlivable--still no insulation--space. This heater puts out a lot of heat and keeps us warm. In fact, it puts out so much heat I had to keep moving it until I found that perfect spot because the thermostat for the HVAC read the room as too warm and wouldn't turn on--the rest of the downstairs was chilly. I have a second one that I keep in the garage with the cats--they came with the house and are not feral but neither are they domestic. Does a great job and bonus is no worries about frozen pipes!This is a great product--love the auto shut-off. Wouldn't buy a heater without it.Update: I should have updated this review to warn buyers--- be careful with usage as it will put a huge dent in your electric bill. We had no idea until out bill came in after a cold month--double our usual amount. We ended up with huge electric bills for a couple of months--no choice unless we wanted to move to hotel--not feasible given all of our pets. Keep this in mind if you need to use it a lot. Not going to take off of rating as I can't fault heater--it takes a lot of power to run; I just didn't realize how much as we usually use it sparingly. Lucky, spring 2016 our house was back to normal:)
The best heater I've used, nearly perfect. Technical review.
January 10, 2015
This heater is the best one I've found, and I've tried *many* types of heaters. It puts out a warm to hot stream of soft air that works great for heating a room. It has a power switch, wattage switch for different output levels, and a thermostat to set the point at which it turns on and off. It also has a safety tip-over switch as heaters are required to have nowadays. The heater works very well, and is the quietest forced-air heater I've come across. Even the thermostat is quiet as it clicks on and off, can barely hear it as opposed to the loud click of most heaters.For forced air heaters you generally have two types, wire element and ceramic element (There is also infrared with fan but I'm not considering that here). They are both electric, but have different element watt-area densities. You can concentrate 1500w in a very small space with a small element producing a hot puff of air, or you can spread the 1500w over a larger surface and get more voluminous comfortable air. A ceramic element is small, concentrating 1500w in a very small area, producing a small poof of extremely hot air, which I don't like because the air doesn't get far. In contrast this is the wire-element style which heats a larger volume of air not as hot, but still plenty hot. I prefer the wire-element kind as this one is, because you can warm yourself up in front of it. It also heats a room more evenly as air is more distributed.Some things you should be aware of. Firstly when you turn on the heater for the first time there will be some motor bearing noise as the bearings are worked in for the first time. I've used 3 of these and it will go away in a few minutes during the first run and doesn't come back. Second my unit has some thermostat bounce, in that it clicks on and then off, then a few seconds later clicks on until the set point is reached. Many heaters I've used do this, which is a property of the bimetallic strip thermostats manufacturers use. This could be alleviated with a different model thermostat, but the ones that don't bounce have loud clicks.Have an electrician make sure your electrical situation is safe. They can make sure outlets and wire connections to them are in good shape, as a bad outlet and/or connection to it can create a hazardous situation. In many cases this is not noticed until a high amp draw appliance like a heater is plugged in and used, which stresses weak electrical connections. Should you feel your outlet, plug, or cover plate getting hot call an electrician and have them take a look at the outlet, and the other ones in the circuit. Since outlets are daisy-chained, a bad connection could exist in an outlet upstream as well. I caught several of these in my house, where the neutral line had gotten so hot it blackened, due to a "backstab" connection to the outlet. "Backstab" and "Backwire" connections are different and your electrician will know the difference.
Must have heater.
October 31, 2014
Only the best space heater I have every owned. This is an excellent product heats large 855 square ft with vaulted sealings within a few hours to a almost a too warm temperature. Have to turn it down which is possible with all the options. Heats evenly from top to bottom. Wish I had found this last year.
Love this space heater so far
October 29, 2014
Bought the grey one from third party vendor, Casa.com. Amazon only had black at the time. The vendor is located in NJ, and I received my package in two days. Fantastic shipping speed.The Vornado MVH is everything that people say it is -- it warms up the room differently than an oil radiator or ceramic type heater. It is much more gentle and comfortable, but at the same time, it takes longer -- although not as long as a radiator. I have used both oil and ceramic type heaters before. With those, you'll feel a lot of heat when you are close to the heater, but the heat drops off very quickly as you move away. You are either too hot or too cold -- more so with ceramic than oil. With the Vornado, you'll feel very little heat even when standing next to it. In fact, some may say that the heater is blowing cold air. Believe it. This is how it supposes to work. It circulates a lot more air through its heating element than the other types of heaters. That's why you don't feel the heat. At the same time, the room temperature rises gradually and stays there. You don't feel the drastic temperature variation when moving around within the room.I use this heater in my home office, which is a small room of roughly 15'x15'. We haven't had a really cold day this fall yet, but I have got a chance to use it once. For my room size, I use the 750w (lowest) setting and keep the thermostat half way (12 o'clock). It reaches a comfortable temperature in 15 minutes, with the door closed. If the door is not closed, this cannot be achieved. The fan noise is not too bad -- no worse than any fan of comparable size, and definitely quieter than my ceramic heater. Can't speak to the longevity of the product yet, as this is my first season owning this product.
I actually bought the thing.
October 16, 2014
Since most if not all the reviews for this product received it free, through the Vine Voice program, I thought I would add my review, since I actually paid for the thing.I bought this heater because our old one bit the dust. My son likes to have a little warm air in the mornings when he eats his breakfast before school (we keep our house cool at night during the winter, and it takes time to warm up.) I've been using it as a room heater during cold snaps this fall, instead of cranking up the furnace. Right now it is in my office, and I am quite comfortable. It has an internal sort of thermostat, so if you set it lower than full blast, it will cycle on and off, keeping the room as warm as you like.It's a nice size, light, and sharp looking. There's no way anyone could hurt themselves with it without a long metal implement and a bit of a death wish. The unit stays cool when operating and it has an ingenious button on the bottom which, if not in contact with the floor or the surface of something, will stop the unit from operating. In other words, if it tips over, it turns off.I like it a lot. It keeps our tv room nice and cozy and we don't have to heat all the bedrooms and kitchen and office.

Great spot heater
December 30, 2016
This is the fourth Vornado we've bought and we love it. (We have two small ones like this and two larger ones.). We live in an old drafty wood sided house and use these heaters to add warmth to cold spots without having to turn the thermostat up for the whole house. This one is in the downstairs bathroom and warms the room up super fast.
ALERT. NO temperature control. Heat is always ON.
December 6, 2016
ALERT. NO temperature control. Heat is always ON. Either High or Low. Runs on all the time. Use in bathroom. Keeps it warm on Low setting. Outside temperature December 04 is about zero. So heat setting is OK. Finally, nothing in the description mentioned NO temperature control. Just full-time heat. Also, fan and heat circulate entire room. Vornado quality.
not for a log cabin in the woods
May 5, 2016
works well in socal. its gets to bone chilling 50 degress here. this will work to keep you warm when you are sleeping or watching tv. not for heating an entire room. and the noise? quit your complaining, its a fan, a very quite one at that. you must be noise sensitive. this is quiet, i dont even notice it. as a bonus you can use it when its hot, as you can run the fan only, without the heat element turned on.

Ok, but.
September 9, 2017
Very nice looking. I'd give 5 stars, but the heater does not have a thermostat. Once on, it stays on, and that'snot too good for a unit I plan to use while I sleep. Otherwise, it is a classy heater, but a bit noisey.

April 20, 2017
I wish it had a slightly higher setting, but it's sturdy and has a great smart feature that turns it off if it is not perfectly upright and level on a flat surface. Really minimizes the fire potential. Great size for a tight office space.
Good Product and Great Customer Service
January 25, 2017
We've had this heater for a year and it worked great, put out good heat and even a cool setting to circulate the air in warmer weather. BUT it started making (loud) noises. Called Vornado and received a replacement in 3 days. We were asked to cut the cord off the heater and send them a pic showing the cut cord and serial number. Vornado sent out our new heater the same day. Couldn't ask for better customer service. Happy customer here. (Knocked the rating down to 4 stars because we had to deal with the replacement.)

May 10, 2016
This is a nice heater, and I have no negative things to say about it. I am only giving it 4 stars though because I feel like the power of the unit could be a bit stronger. It gets the job done, as long as it is RIGHT next to you. It is nice to have next to your feet when you start to get cold. I realize if I was looking for something powerful to heat an entire room I should've purchased a larger unit, but I was hoping this would do the job.
Little heater with a lot of power
December 28, 2015
I use this heater in my moderately sized bedroom (roughly 12'x12') and it heats up my room in about 20-30 minutes. I have a large sliding glass door which lets in a lot of cold air during these cold winter months so this heater is pretty handy to have around since I don't have central heating, although I do suspect it uses up quite a bit of energy, so use mindfully. It seems to circate the heat fairly well without oscillating. The four hour timer is handy and there's a safety feature that shuts it off while the heater is moved/lifted. There are 3 settings - fan, high heat and low heat. The only thing I wish it had was a timer to turn on before I wake up in the mornings.
Pretty Good
February 9, 2014
When I first received this and turned it on, I have to admit I was a bit disappointed at first. The hot air blowing on the lowest setting was minimal, and on the second setting was okay but only reached a couple feet in front. I got this because my room was cold since the heat isn't turned on all the time. My room is pretty big but I wasn't expecting to get a heater to heat up the entire place; just a small corner of it where my desk and computer is.Willing to give it another shot, I left it running next to my desk and gradually, my feet wasn't as frozen anymore. It wasn't that I felt hot air blowing on my feet, but the air around just gradually became more warm. I set the heater on a chair so that it was level with my bed, and I accidentally fell asleep without being covered by blankets. Which was a first for me because the air is usually so cold! It was the heater that finally warmed the air around me to an extent that it was habitable without being covered by blankets.So far the heater is working as desired. As to how long the quality of it will last, I shall see. I left it on running overnight with no visible worrying problems, although I wouldn't do it often just in case.If you expect this heater to blow hot air continuously in your face, this isn't quite the heater for you. If you want a heater that will warm the air gradually around you so that you can't feel the cold, then this little heater is perfect.

October 11, 2017
 Just got the Vornado heater today and it only 10/11/17 it too early to tell. But I did a test. First 30 min on highest temp the smell kind of strong. After 30 min it slow go away. After one hour it barely notice the smell. I have take pic and short video to show the three temp setting does work. At the lowest it put out 120 degree. Middle 139.xx highest 156.xx. I test at the time my room was at 75 degree and have my ceiling fan on highest to not over heat my room when we are not in winter yet. So far the temperature does show it output strong but this will change because the temperature will be a lot colder in the winter so the temperature output might be lower. Please note temp were taking in front on the heater. Will update in the winter if any big significant changes. Because I can only upload one video so I will show the one with the highest setting it can output.
It works, but no digital (all manual).
March 20, 2017
It's nice, because they are remodeling my apartment and this is my source of heat. It's a relatively (not closed off) living room, but I bought it to save me money, and I don't really think it's doing that (my heaters in my apartment are from 1980). However, It does seem easier to set this to an appropriate temperature in the room. I would recommend buying a mini thermostat if your going to use it.
Good Heater
March 8, 2017
REALLY works well. Heats a 14 x 16 room quickly even when very cold. Only issue is that, possibly as a design/safety feature, it sometimes will not turn on immediately. If I adjust it, by picking it up and placing it back on the carpeted floor, it will turn back on. Very sensitive to movement when working; a small adjustment in movement will turn it off, probably good for safety reasons, but why it occasionally won't turn on at all unless I move it slightly is a little frustrating. Overall, delivers heat quickly as promised.
almost perfect
January 20, 2017
I love/hate this heater, there's so much it has going for it except for one huge flaw. It's nearly silent (that's why I chose a Vornado), effective, compact and feels well made. My only gripe is the thermostat is useless.For anyone thinking about buying this, please be aware this heater is meant to heat the air and gently circulate it to spread through the room. This isn't the type of heater you huddle up near as a substitute for a fire. It blows warm air and heats my 10x20 ft room a few degrees on low (750W) in about 15 minutes. On medium (1125W) it's warm enough to be stifling up close and it's even more so on high (1500W). I've had plenty of other heaters that feel like they'll sear your skin at any of those wattages, so it seems a little odd to only get warm air from it but it's not a problem to me. This may be a plus for those of you with little ones or pets around. There are no hot surfaces to be found.Overall, it's pretty good and I would have given it 5 stars if the thermostat was usable. I just can't ever find that sweet spot that will get it to cycle on and off on it's own. If I slowly turn it up or down just enough to find the on/off points it gets me nowhere because there's a wide margin between the two. No matter how much I've tried tiny adjustments within that range, I've never managed to find a setting where it will maintain the room temperature on it's own.
Definitely recommend for supplemental heat or small rooms!
December 29, 2016
I live in a cold, drafty house and was mainly looking for a way to supplement the heat in my chilliest room... it does just that! It also saved me when it dropped below freezing outside and my heat turned off! With the door closed, the heat is distributed quite evenly and doesn't cause "hot spots", like some other space heaters. I like that it blows a steady stream of warm air instead of unbearably hot heat. It's also aesthetically pleasing, which is extremely nice since I have it on all the time! I would definitely recommend!

November 30, 2016
Works pretty well, just not a fan (pun intended) of how you get it to work. Setting it to a desired temp would be nice rather than heating up the room and then slowly turning it to fan off.It's good about shutting off immediately once it tips slightly. I like that

Wonderful heater. Poorly made. But still I keep buying them.
October 5, 2017
This is my third Vornado heater. That's because the quality is terrible (two just stopped working, and one was dead on arrival). But I still love the heater. I use it on my feet and get a gentle stream heat, not a blast of heat (like my other heater). So... I just end up by throwing out the bad one and getting a new one. Maybe I'm just fated with bad ones, but it is what it is.
Just what I needed
July 22, 2017
My office is freezing and my coworker has this heater in red. When she's out, I steal it. :-) I decided it was time to get my own. I couldn't be happier. It keeps me nice and toasty. There is also a cooling component so when I'm too warm I can cool off with the fan.

August 16, 2016
It arrived promptly, packaged well.For the first day that it was turned on, it had a burning plastic/metal smell, but that went away and the heater is good so far. It can get annoying when u move it around bcus the safety feature shuts it off..but all in all, I have owned several Vornado products bcus they seem to be good quality and I like this one. Bought 2 of them. would buy this brand again.
Little Powerhouse
November 18, 2015
Darling little heater - perfect for a counter in a bathroom. My mom has one in bright red. It's quiet and it puts out great heat for a small, enclosed area, plus it has the safety switch on the bottom in case of accidental tip over (which is hard to do because it's a quasi-pyramid shape). Unfortunately, mine arrived DOA - wouldn't even power on. I'm sure Vornado has good warranties, and typically they are great products (we've had 3 full room heaters for 10 years that are still going). I ended up returning this to Amazon almost as soon as I got it and determined it wasn't functional, because they have such an awesome system in place for returns. I won't hesitate to try and order it again though. The missing star is just because of the product arriving broken (it was shipped in it's packaging box - no additional cushion - perhaps Vornado needs to assess how well their packaging actually protects the units during shipping).

It was good while it worked2
October 27, 2017
Bought this in January 2016. Used 1.5 winter seasons, turned it on today, fan died then the heating element burnt out.Worked great while it lasted.
only got 2 winters together
August 15, 2017
It died on us last winter which was disappointing. It only lasted 2 winters; it was not constantly used during the colder months. I've paid less for a different brand space heater and it lasted longer. I've bought a few Vornado products and this one was the disappointment. When it did work though it worked really well. It just didn't last.
Fan Mode Review
July 31, 2017
This review is mostly based off of the fan mode. I bought this item hoping it would be perfect to save space and money by getting something with a dual heater and fan. I've only used the heater one time that worked fine for my medium-sized bedroom. But the fan mode did not work well at all for me. It took over 4 hours with door closed to cool my room to a comfortable temp (it was about 78 degrees in my room and I get comfortable around 74ish). Sometimes I would put the fan on my desk a foot away from my face to cool myself. I plan to keep it and give it a try for the winter months, but I will be buying a separate fan.

July 7, 2017
In my case this unit is too small. Perhaps if I was using it under my desk it'd be fine - but it won't take the chill off a small cool room. Additionally my heater has a gremlin in it somewhere - I often have to "slap it" to start the heat/blower running. Maybe it's under warranty - but who keeps up with all the requirements to utilize such?
Bad for night time
November 30, 2016
This little heater can quickly warm up a space like a bedroom. The problem was after just a few nights of use it starting making a clicking noise constantly after running for about thirty minutes. It's the same noise the base makes when the tip shut off happens. So, it's going back.
Okay, but I had issues with it...
October 15, 2016
Please note that this heater has no thermostat, only a high and low power setting. I had to take it apart and push the fan all the way on the motor shaft after it ran for a while because the fan hit the housing and stopped turning. I don't know if the fan was not installed correctly or what happened. It has been in use for a season.

It is good for small areas
November 1, 2017
The plus side of this unit is that it barely makes any noise. It is sooo quiet. The minus is that every time you pick it up to change places, it stops working and when you put it down you have to start/stop the unit to start again. It is good for small areas. Not a very strong heater. Good for my bathroom.
Meh.
November 24, 2016
Doesn't get nearly as hot as I would expect from a "whole room heater". Don't get me wrong... after letting it run for a bit it will heat up the whole room it's just not as hot as I'd like. Not much (if any) appreciable difference between the I, II, and III settings either. The "thermostat" knob is nice.Overall, it's fine, I just wouldn't buy it again.
I liked it so much that I purchased another

This is the second Vornado MVH Whole Room Vortex Heater that I have purchased. I liked it so much that I purchased another. My original one from 3 yrs ago is still going strong but my purchase from Feb 2015 died suddenly. It does not turn on, no fan or heating element. It says there is a 5 yr warranty so I will contact Vornado to replace or fix it.Unlike other reviews, I find that these heaters do a great job circulating heat in a fairly large space. My finished basement is long and open and it warmed the entire area and eliminated the drafty feeling. I feel that the 3 settings help minimize the utility bill and it was energy efficient. Very disappointed in the short shelf life but I will contact Vornado to see what they say/do about the 5 yr warranty.
Nice, but no Whole Room heater.
January 26, 2016
This Dorado is advertised as a Whole Room heater. If it is, it would have to be a small room. It has a three way switch in the middle, next to an On/Off switch (nice touch) and an analog dial for heat. The middle switch is to regulate power from 750 watts (Lo) to 1150 (med) to 1500 watts (Hi).It's a nice looking little personal heater. The one I received I believe was defective. I could tell no discernible difference between Lo, Med, or Hi. It puts out a warm circulating air warming the ambient temperature around it, but not much more than a few feet around it. Because I couldn't get it to be more than a personal heater, I sent it back. To be fair, I can't say how it would be if the middle switch is defective, and it can't get out of Lo, but based on what I did get, I don't think this would ever be a Whole Room heater.
Quieter, but heat output not any better than cheaper models
November 27, 2015
They certainly are quieter, but I bought two for a 30 x 20 ft room and put them at either end. From the other reviews I thought we'd be roasting with two. But that wasn't the case. We have two ceiling fans that push the hot air down and I didn't notice the room being any warmer than our cheap little holmes heaters.
doesn't seem to heat much of the room
January 31, 2015
Can't say as this works as fantastically as other reviewers have said. I bought this heater because I live in an older apt where not much sun gets in the windows and heat is supplied by wall heaters in each room. The wall heaters are loud, have to run for hours and are expensive. They don't seem to heat the whole room up too well so I bought this heater based on other reviewers comments hoping it would cut my electricity costs and do a better job. Alas, it doesn't seem to heat up the room any better than the wall heaters were doing. I set it on high and ran it for at least an hour. It is warm right in front of the heater but move away to another part of the room and it doesn't seem feel any warmer. The room is about 250 sqft.

It looks great and has a small footprint. First one rattled like a banshee and I returned it immediately. Second one rattles just a little, on occasion but a firm whack makes it quiet again. Been said a thousand times but the vornado of today is not what it used to be.
Good but limited.
March 17, 2017
In a big room must be near an individual to help them. But in a small bathroom it does the trick.
Died much too soon
February 7, 2017
This heater replaced our first Vornado personal size heater - the first one lasted 3 years - this one lasted about 7 months. The fan quit. Very disappointing. Because the first one was so good, we purchased a third Vornado personal size heater - hoping this one has a good, long life for us. When they work as they should, they are great, little heaters.
Its ok
December 4, 2016
This is an ok heater the space has to be closed in and really small. In my opinion it takes a very long time to heat up a small space. I use this heater at work to heat underneath my desk. I put cardboard up to close off the open spaces underneath my desk so my legs will be warm it takes a good hour and a half to get toastie under there. Keep in mind that this is a small space like a 3x3 area worth of space not much room at all.
Not a great heater
October 24, 2016
I'm surprised at all the great reviews; perhaps I purchased this for the wrong purpose. I don't find that this fan provides much warmth at all. I use it as a personal space heater at work because my office is freezing, but even when I have it directly next to my body on my desk I'm not very warmed. It is not nearly as powerful as I expected (and I didn't expect it to warm my office).
... only blows warm air (which is how it stays cool to the touch)
January 16, 2016
As others have said it really only blows warm air (which is how it stays cool to the touch). The fan seems to only have one speed even though there is a switch that looks like it controls fan speed (maybe that is for the two different heat settings?) If you have it in a small room with the doors/ windows shut it probably does an OK job at recirculating warm air. But if you actually want to feel the heat from this thing you're going to want to have it sitting a on your desk a few feet away from you and pointed right at you. The thing is that there are both lower and higher wattage personal heaters out there at a cheaper cost than this little vornado. I haven't tried any of the others but some of these seem like they would be a little more effective for less.Lower wattagehttp://www.amazon.com/Lasko-100-MyHeat-Personal-Ceramic/dp/B003XDTWN2/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1452963098&sr=1-1&keywords=personal+heaterHigher wattagehttp://www.amazon.com/Lasko-754200-Ceramic-Adjustable-Thermostat/dp/B000TKDQ5C/ref=sr_1_2?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1452963262&sr=1-2&keywords=personal+heaterI suppose it depends on your intended use but do some shopping. I decided to try the vornado personal space heater because I own another one of their fans and like their vortex technology for circulating the air in the whole room but I really thought that it was a bit of a gimmick at this size.

I wanted to like this thing...
February 1, 2017
I originally liked this heater, but it's not very strong. I have a small Pelonis heater that actually cranks out more heat than this tower. Additionally, about a year after purchase, the nob to turn the unit off/on has decided it doesn't want to work anymore. So, I can turn on the fan or the heat on low. This product being from Vornado, I expected it to last a long time, but alas... it's going into the donation pile and my small Hunter heater is taking it's job.
Setting the heat to 1 bar makes it smell like smoke. Setting the heat to 2 bars makes ...
January 16, 2017
Decent little heater that takes the chill out of my bathroom in the morning, when it works. I've been using it for 1 year. This is my second unit. The first unit shorted out as soon as I turned it on. This unit lasted a year. After 1 year of heavy use, the fan still works. Setting the heat to 1 bar makes it smell like smoke. Setting the heat to 2 bars makes it instantly short out. It takes about 20 - 30 minutes for the unit to fully heat my extra small bathroom in the morning, 10 minutes to make it no longer chilly.
Had an awful odor that wouldn't go away
April 4, 2016
Hmm, I bought this for my sweet daughter, and although she liked the concept and believed it was a grand unit, the bloomin' thing had a plastic odor that wouldn't go away. She tried cleaning the outside, leaving everything open, running it for a day, everything she could think of with the exception of taking it apart--all to no avail. Had to send it back, for the stench was too much
WORKED GREAT...FOR 5 MINUTES
March 31, 2015
I opened the package and plugged in the heater. It worked GREAT...until I turned it off, and then turned it back on again (10 minute process). No more fan, no more heater, no more anything but power lights. I read the manual to see if there was something I did wrong. I followed the trouble shooting suggestions for what happens if you get the power light but no heat. Nothing. Also, reading through the manual, they say DO NOT use this product in an RV where there is a power conversion. I bought this heater for my pop up camper trailer. If you aren't supposed to use this product in that environment, that should be made clear in the listing. Not waiting for the company to respond. I've already purchased a different brand heater.
Useless.
March 3, 2015
The fan barely functioned and the heat output was paltry. My Lasko heater did a far better job of heating the small office I needed to heat. I gave it an extra star because it does have a fan-only feature-however useless it may be-that my Lasko tower heater does not.
Does NOT heat a small space.
January 16, 2015
We bought this for the water closet in our bathroom, which is only 40 square feet, but it simply does not get it warm. I'd be in the shower and still be cold, even after running it for 20 minutes first. It just doesn't put out enough heat. Ironically, when I put it into the open part of our bathroom, which is much larger, to warm it up for after my shower, it warms up the open space far better. Both parts of the bathroom have angled, tall ceilings.So if you're using this in an open space, it will probably do the job. But it's not 1500 watts, which most heaters are, so if you want to make it nice and toasty, I wouldn't even recommend this for larger rooms. But it won't do squat in a more enclosed space. We're letting my teenager use it in his bedroom because we waited too long to return it.

Better than a toaster oven... I guess?
October 29, 2017
"Is this thing broken?"--Wife after first use.I, like most of us, enjoy a nice warm bathroom pre-shower and most importantly, post-shower. With the Vornado brand behind it, surely, I thought, this heater that's 3x the price of the other best sellers will blow 3x the heat. After all, if this thing is anything like their regular fans (which btw I highly recommend), I'll be warm in seconds. After all, my old $20 Honeywell heater was able to get warm in about 5 seconds and the room in about 1 min. (Think small hair dryer). Well... I was sadly mistaken.After plugging this thing in and turning it on full bore, your first thought is, "How do I get this thing on the high setting?" Unfortunately, this is the high setting. The heat is slow to become noticeable, the fan even slower. Painfully slow. You can't help but to think it's broken. But don't worry. If you've got a small bathroom and 30 mins to kill... it will eventually indeed heat your room nice and evenly.But seriously, this thing is a disappointment to the Vornado name. Right off the bat, while the build quality is decent, the fan speed needs to be a minimum of 3x faster to get the heat dispersed quicker. But also, the heat must simply come up quicker than what it does. For the price I expected better. Much better.
deceptive Vornado heater
March 31, 2017
doesn't warm up a big room - okay for small bathroom but the heat blowing is slow and low fan only - you have to leave it 30 minutes on before you can feel any heat in the room -
Overly sensitive tip-over feature prevents use on older wood floor
November 16, 2016
It took me a couple days to figure out why the heater kept cutting out. There's a large button on the bottom of the unit that is pressed in when the heater is sitting flat on a even surface. The heater will not operate unless the button is pressed in. The problem is that the button is designed to be so sensitive that I discovered the heater would not work consistently on my older and slightly uneven (in places) wood floor -- even though the unit was upright and secure and in no danger of tipping. My workaround is to stick a coaster under the heater where the button is.
Not worth the money
August 26, 2016
Bought this heater Dec, 2014, it has now stopped working (Aug 2016), and it was only used during the fall and winter. I have had less expense heaters last longer. Did not like the controls on this heater, hard for old eyes to see, also not like that it did not have a timer. It seemed to put out a good amount of heat while it worked.
it smells
January 8, 2016
it smells. the smell that one reviewer said "goes away after a day" didnt go away after 3-4 uses, twice for 1 1/2 hours. the smell is a specifically noxious plastic odor that forced me to open the window in the freezing cold (self-defeating). it stays througout the entire use. i returned the item and went to a retail store where they had some identical vornados laying around. i had them try the demonstrator to rule out mine being a freak occurrence. it smelled the same as the one i bought. i subsequently bought a delonghi which doesnt smell. (some laskos were there, they also smelled like the vornado, just not as strong).
Meh, if you want to heat a room...don't buy this one
February 2, 2015
It heats, but by no means is it a full room heater. I have to sit directly in front of it with my hands an inch from the logo in the center for it to even warm my hands. Sitting less than 3 ft away, the air is already getting chilly as it reaches me. Three. Feet. Away. And I'm indoors. In Atlanta. And the room is already heated by a Central system to 64 (in order to keep the upstairs from getting uncomfortable, I can't heat the downstairs any further than that via the HVAC, which is why I wanted the space heater). For the price of a whole room heater, I got a personal heater. Kind of. If I sit close. And lean in.

Worked fine for a while then slowly broke down.
August 13, 2017
Dead after 3 months. It slowly worked itself down. It first started making a clicking noise. Now the fan wont turn on.
Only Lasts 5 Months
March 6, 2017
I have had two of these space heaters. They work really well for a couple of months, and then both of them after about 5 months start making a really loud clicking sound almost like the fan is hitting against something and it doesn't go away. I thought maybe I just stored the first one weird but the same exact thing just happened to my second one. The sound is really loud and obnoxious and it makes the heater unusable. Too bad because I like the safety off feature and it gives a good amount of heat for under my desk at work.
Two Stars
December 21, 2016
Did not notice that their was no thermostat, my fault but setup with a timer in wife's bathroom. Now making noise from fan.
It also turns off and on via a pressure switch on the bottom which was kind of annoying since you would need to move this if you
November 2, 2016
I had high hopes for this. I wanted to use it for my garage and for my work desk. The minute I plugged it in and turned it on it rattled a LOT. No matter what I did or what setting I used it rattled. It also turns off and on via a pressure switch on the bottom which was kind of annoying since you would need to move this if you got too hot or wasn't hitting you just right and that constant switching off and on might mess with your electrical outlets. If Vornado fixed these issues id try again because I like the design and settings. But right now...it just fails
Super quiet and great for the office
July 16, 2016
Super quiet but just enough power for an office heater. The auto-shutoff is key.Update - Lasted a year and a half and completely died
Had to Return - Plastic Fumes
April 5, 2016
I was looking forward to using this nice little space heater, but when I turned it on the chemical smell was too much for me. I expected a little "new" electronic fumes, but this was bad. I left it running (out the window) to try to air it out, but it still smelled way to strong to use it in a closed space. I got a much cheaper one $14.99!) that had no smell right out of the box! Go figure. :) Good luck. If you are not sensitive to fumes, you will like the heater.

While this product worked fine for 8 months
January 3, 2017
While this product worked fine for 8 months. In the last few months the fan has started creating an obnoxious sound every time I turn it on (whether its on fan only or one of the heater settings). Now the fan won't turn on at all. The product isn't even a full year old and has been sitting in my office under my desk during that time.
Terrible quality
May 26, 2016
I have now gone through two of these heaters. Both of the heaters had problems after a few months. The first heater's dial stopped turning so that eventually I couldn't even turn it on. The replacement heater seemed to be doing better until the fan started being very noisy. Initially I was able to tap the side of the heater and the fan would settle down but now there is nothing I can do to quiet the fan. My recommendation is if you want a heater that is only going to last a few months get a $10 one instead of a $45 one.
Defective (non-functioning) item
March 12, 2016
The unit turns on and nothing happens...no heat, no fan, etc., and did not work after following the troubleshooting instructions. There is something rattling around inside the unit which I assume explains why it doesn't work. I received it Jan 29 but did not have occasion to try it until today (March 12) because the weather was warm enough that I didn't need it (I live in So California). I now realize there is a 30 day return period so I am out of luck, apparently. But the bottom line is: Amazon shipped a product that was broken/did not work in its intended use when it arrived, and I now have a large $49 paperweight.
Last on Race Day !
January 14, 2016
Well it's like this , The race was over before it began. It came in a box 2 sizes too big, wrapped in a thin sheet of bubble wrap. This thing was shaking around like a marble in a paint can. No documentation, no box, no instructions. All that said it's not that hard to figure it out. Plugged it in it lasted about 2 minutes then it sounded like a 62 Ford with a rod knock. Guess I will just use my old one its been going strong for about 8 years. Easy return through Amazon, but it should not have made it to my door in this condition.
Product fail!!!
December 29, 2015
This heater was a disappointment. I have owned this heater for 3 weeks now, and there is left to be desired. First, I will start with the pros: Compact size and aetheticly pleasing. Now here are the cons: inconsistent heating. The heater was purchased to heat my bathroom and only sometimes worked. After the 1st week, the heater began to make a clicking sound. Kinda scary. The sound occurred right when you turn on the heater. Now at week 3, the heater is no longer functioning. I hope this doesn't happen to everyone.
broken within months
June 19, 2015
We have had this heater for fourth months now. It was always a slow job of heating a room, usually took too long. For a month or two now we haven't been able to turn it to the highest setting, and now it won't produce heat at all. Unbelievably poor purchase, this heater is total crap. Buy something else.

Do not buy
November 10, 2017
Either mine arrived broken, or this product is just terrible. The air is barely warm. The fan is not very powerful. I think most of the good reviews on this were written by people who got it free. Do yourself a favor and do not buy this heater.
Not for those with chemical sensititivity
October 29, 2017
Came on time. It is as described. It is hard to know if it is turned off from any view but front.I find this dangerous. If you have any problemwith chemical odors, as I do, when this product heats it gives off a plastic smell that can cause sensitive people to have badreactions
Very disappointed in the durability of this unit
March 1, 2017
I purchase 2x of this space/room heater.And within 3 weeks of use both of the unit failed.First unit fan shroud wraped inward causing the fan to completely stop working and second unit fan turns off anything below #4 on the speed setting.Very disappointed in the durability of this unit.
Last only a year
February 15, 2017
This is like my fourth heater with this brand...each heater only last me a year and mind you i dont need it for the whoke year so basically last for one winter of use maybe 4/5 hrs a day... they heat the room really well! but if I have to buy a new heater every year it's disgusting bc then we have to end up throwing in the garbage..If i wish to purchase a heater again it wont be this brand especially if I'm forced to buy a new heater every year to then junk it! not happy about that!
Don't buy this heater - worthless
February 1, 2017
Totally ineffective. At the highest setting, the air is barely warm. A piece of junk. Too bad, I had previous vornado heaters from years ago that were good
Very disappointed. I have Vornado fans that are great
December 22, 2016
Very little power. Needed for small bathroom and it didn't do a thing. Very disappointed. I have Vornado fans that are great, but this left a lot to be desired and cost me $11.00 to ship the darn thing back. RIP OFF.

Second Update: VH202 heater is failing... again.
September 3, 2017
Second update: The new Vornado heater is already making a clicking noise. I'm not sure what is going on with Vornado's quality control but the VH202 has a ridiculous rate of failure. How can a heater that sits on my desk and is never moved fail so many times?Update: I contacted Vornado about the issue and they sent me a brand new VH202. Vornado's customer service really seems to take care of their customers. However, I admit I would have liked the originally purchased product to last longer. It only took a few business days for the heater to arrive. It is currently sitting on my desk and working perfectly.Thanks Vornado!------This is the third Vornado VH202 heater I have purchased. The first one died after 3 years, the second is great and my wife uses it often. However, the third one which sits on my desk and never moves has developed issues. The fan blades used to spin around without touching anything inside the case. Now when I turn the heater on, the fan blades scrape the front grill and make a terrible noise. Sometimes after startup the noise goes away. I guess the blades balance out and move away from the grill. However, sometimes the fan blades continue to make noise until I shut down and power back on.I have owned a combination of six Vornado fans/heaters over the last 4 - 5 years. A year ago, a standing heater unit's cord got so hot the plug melted a bit. Now this desktop one is having issues, different issues but issues none the less. I hope Vornado ups the quality of their products as it seems like more and more products are having issues.

not worth it
Electrical Fire
May 22, 2017
The fan blade started hitting the cover a few weeks ago and this would continue for the first few minutes of use until the heater warmed up. A few minutes ago, shortly after turning on the heater, with the fan hitting the cover as it has been lately, an electrical fire broke out from the heater. The distinct odor and cream-like smoke were unmistakeable. The heater was plugged directly into a 15 amp 120-volt wall outlet when this happened, as it always is. Fortunately, I was using it, as I always do, while sitting next to it. No one was injured and I was able to shut off the heater and move it somewhere safe. I have always been warned not to leave these unattended, but this was a stark reminder.
Completely worthless.
December 25, 2016
Worthless. This thing did nothing but blow room temperature air. Unless you are heating yourself in a phone booth, do not buy this POS.

December 23, 2016
Doesn't put out much heat. Just needed for my feet in the office and at the highest setting it seems as though it struggles to output warmth. I returned it. COST ME $11.00 TO RETURN THOUGH
Faulty design
December 22, 2016
I now have a second one failing after a few months. In both the fan blade loosens from the motor shaft allowing it to hit the front guard. I suppose I am going to see if Vornado will replace their replacement.
