I was looking for a simple space heater to use in my office and I can not begin to say how great this one is working for me!
This is only my first day using it, but so far it is running well, and heating up my office perfectly! One of the many things I like about this heater is that it is quiet. My coworker has one that I can hear all the way across the office :(
It also stays equally as quiet when you turn the fan up on max.
I really great value! I am already thinking of getting another!

I bought this heater to warm up my bedroom (roughly 9' x 12') as it's getting cold out but my landlord refuses to turn on the heat. I'll try to give a descriptive review here.

The heater has three settings: fan, low, and high. The fan setting just provides circulation while the low and high settings provide heat. The heater also has a thermostat so you can set the amount of warmth you want to maintain the the room. The thermostat isn't *super* accurate, but you get the hang of it after a few uses. Nothing to complain about.

I usually keep the heater under my desk and turn it on on the low setting when I start doing homework in the evenings. This works out best for me because it delivers heat directly to my feet and legs (which feels amazing) while also warming up the room in general. On the low setting, it takes about 30-60 minutes to fully warm up the room and on the high setting it takes about half as long. This heater is not large enough or powerful enough to effectively heat up a larger space, like a living room or dining room. I think it is best suited for small to medium sized bedrooms and bathrooms.

The one downside is that it does not have an auto-off safety feature that turns the heater off when it is moved. So if you have small children or pets that might knock over a heater sitting on the ground, you might want to look into a different heater. However, if you're an adult and you're not stupid about how you operate electrical equipment, you'll be fine.

As far as noise level goes, I have no complaints. The fan does make some noise, but no more than expected/necessary. I would not describe it as "loud" and, once it's operating, you barely notice it.

All in all: if you want a personal heater that can heat up a small to medium sized room, buy this heater. It is well worth the under-20-dollar price tag. It's small, unobtrusive, and gets the job done.

I ordered this space heater for my home office, which just isn't as warm as the rest of my apartment. I have to say that it does the job to take the edge off the chill, as long as I put it right next to me. It's also very quiet. Just the normal whirring sound any fan makes. However, there's no way that this little heater is capable of heating a space, unless it's a closet. If you're looking for something to heat a whole room, go with something bigger. Also, there's no safety feature that turns off the unit if it tips over.

With all that being said, I feel like I got what I paid for.

I ordered two of these back when our gas prices were outrageous, and it was Winter. When I plugged the first one in, it worked so well at heating our entire apartment, that I thought to myself how I didn't even need to use the other... until two weeks later when the first one broke down. I was nonplussed at first- "Hey, you get what you pay for, and I still have another!" Until the very same thing happened approximately two weeks later with the second. I was upset, and contacted the company numerous times to no avail.

I live in military housing and this winter, for some reason, the base opted to not turn on our heaters. Our apartments are cement, tile, and stainless steel. Very cold! And our on-base exchanges were completely unable to keep up with supply and demand for space heaters. I ordered two of these heaters for our apartment to get us through the last leg of the cold days. I bought them based on three criteria: size - I wanted small units as I intended to use them primarily in the bathrooms; price - the cheaper the better; and simplicity.

What I received was absolutely what I was looking for. These are little heaters and they are designed to quietly, safely and efficiently heat a small space. I have used them in the bathrooms with great success, as well as in my children's bedroom. With the door closed over, one of these heaters easily warms up their 11'x12' bedroom within about 15 minutes. I run them in the bathroom when my kids are in the tub and they no longer dread getting out of the tub! They don't even shiver when they're drying off. The controls are super user-friendly (dummy-proof, even), the fan isn't noisy, and there is a red light to indicate whether or not the unit is running (sometimes with the exhaust fan in the bathroom also running, I don't hear the heater at all.) The face of the heater, even after running for an extended period of time, is not overly hot and I don't worry that my kids will inadvertently hurt themselves if they happen to touch them.

I could not have asked for more, these heaters are perfect for us.

They say you get what you pay for. Owning better products means spending more money. I normally believe this as a general rule, but this Impress heater is an exception for sure. It costs less and works fantastic!

I bought it to replace a similar small heater, which had difficulty maintaining a stable and steady temperature in my carport area utility room. With my previous heater, I would turn up the thermostat if it got colder outside - around 40 degrees. However, a couple of days later when we had warmer temps of around 65, I decided to check on that heater. I discovered the heater was STILL RUNNING - as if it didn't know any better. The room temperature had reached 82 degrees!

With that problem noted, my point is ... this Impress heater works perfectly and maintains an even temperature AND actually adapts to changes in surrounding temperatures - unlike the piece of crap it replaced. :)

So although skeptical at first, I would now recommend this heater to anyone. By the way, it's very quite too.

Happy Holidays,
Jeff

Thought this would be an economical option to heat my very small dorm room (8' x 10'), but all it could do was heat the plastic on the heater! Even when I turn it up to full blast, it will only turn on for ~10 - 20 seconds before the thermostat decides it is warm enough. I think the reason for this was that the plastic got very hot, which must have influenced the thermostat, which could no longer give a reliable measurement of the room's temperature. Sometimes you get what you pay for -- not much.

I bought several different heater fans from amazon over the last 3 months. This fan broke and will not turn on after just 2 months of light use. bad product quality, buy a different model if you don't want to throw away your money. I can not locate the company to try and get my fan replaced under the 1 year warranty, so i just wasted $20.00

Pulled the product out of the box and plugged it in and immediately it started sparking and smoke started to come out of the back of the heater. Very poor quality. Extremely disappointed. I guess.... You get what you pay for really applies here...
