I was excited about this fan because of the oscillating factor and the 3 speeds. Most only have two speeds. I like "instant" heat. If I'm cold, I want to get warm fast. Sitting directly in front of this fan I didn't feel that I was getting warm. It produces heat, just not where I wanted it. I felt like the warm air came out like a cone, only on the outside of the cone, not the center. If I stood two feet away from it, I couldn't feel the air/heat on me. It's just not what I wanted.

This is a great little heater. When I first received it, I thought that it probably wouldn't do a real good job, but we have a rather large bedroom, and it heats it up wonderfully.

I love my Optimus heater so much that when I thought it had stopped working (user error - I mistakenly turned the heat setting to low instead of high and it kicked off at such a low setting) that I immediately went into the office, logged onto Amazon and ordered another one! I bought my first Optimus heater in April 2011. I use it daily for a minimum of 8 hours, sometimes as a white noise fan, other times as a heater. While it doesn't appear to have a strong output, it will heat up a standard sized room (or cubicle) in no time. I keep my furnace set around 64 degrees in the winter to save costs, and this little heater is more than enough to heat up any single room to a comfortable temperature within about 15-20 minutes. Even on low, I have to get up in the middle of the night and turn it off because I get too warm! The new heater I recently purchased is much quieter and doesn't provide as much white noise, so I've set it up in the office instead of the bedroom. I'll be buying this little powerhouse until they stop making it!

Chose due to price. First one received stopped working the same week.(not oscillating or turning on) returned and replaced with same one. Second went bad the following week after received.(overheated and fan stopped spinning) even after unplugging and letting it cool off,item instructions states that if this happens normal operation will resume in a few minutes..did not happen.Returned for a refund. This product is not a high quality product and is made in china. Ive learned my lesson,spend more on a better quality product. You will get your moneys worth.

I would not recommend this product. After a month, my heater went so red and a flame started. Fortunately, it wasn't near anything and I was able to regain my composure enough to unplug it right away. We followed every instruction outlined in the manual and made sure to avoid overheating it. I am not even going to get it repaired by the manufacture as that was a scary situation that I don't need to go through again.

I bought 2 of these heaters one of the heaters lasted 6 hrs before it shut off and the fan stopped working and the second one lasted 30 mins until the fan froze on that one too. Who would know that both heaters would freeze up with the same problem. Be aware of this space heater. Hopefully u wont have the same problem as i did.

I bought this heater. It worked the first day. I've tried to turn it on again and it hasn't worked since. I was out of town so now it's to late to return it. Do not buy this heater. I paid a lot for this heater that was broken. I spend a lot of money here on this site but now I believe I may buy elsewhere. Thanks a lot amazon

This is a nice little heater. It is small, of course, so it will just keep the area by your desk or under the table warm. However, since it is little, you can use it in a pretty small space. It won't cut the chill in a large room, but will keep a small space very nicely warm.

The first one lasted two days before the fan stopped working and it overheated. Nothing I did could make it work again. The company I ordered from replaced it and the second one stopped working on the 1st day - same thing. Obviously, I would not recommend this product.
