These things are really useful under a desk in winter to keep your feet warm and help dry your boots.

There's also the added bonus of them being much less prone to smoldering things and catching fire than the old school space heaters.

The world needs to be colder, not hotter. Ban all heaters. Put an air conditioner on it instead.

Would this be able to heat a large (~12' x ~20') room?

Yeah, so how big a room are we talking here? Bedroom? Not a living room, right?

I wonder if it could still 'perm' my Barbie dolls' hair like the old school ones did? Granted, Barbie's face melted off if we put her too close, but her hair looked good!

Honestly, it's 41 degrees where I'm at and this heater looks REALLY good right about now. I hate cranking the heater on and off every day this time of year.

Once again I am terribly disappointed in a product that does not fully disclose everything in the blurb - how many watts is this thing...?


[MOD: We've updated the specs.]

"If the heater is accidently tipped over, it will automatically shut off power to the heating element. When returned to upright position it will resume to normal operation"

so can i run it as just a fan in summer without the heat without putting the thing upside down?

I'm with you. The ONLY pertinant spec on ANY heater, is the wattage.

Anyone in Woot! headquarters find out the wattage?

I spend an entire year wenching at how i need a vornado to cool my room and you give me this? Seriously woot?

Thunderthighs how could you let this happen?

At least this automatically shuts off if it's tipped over i guess. That's good to have to make sure your house doesn't fire.

Where did you find that?

Only thing I found, outside of links here, was something at BBB, that kinda looked like this one, but not the same.

$63 on Amazon. Very mixed reviews, mostly very negative (ineffective heating; noisy).

I'm trying to see what I can find out.

I do recall asking about the model number earlier and that is the model number for this (what we were given).

But the process of cooling down air is just as detrimental if not more than heating up air.

This model is interestingly not listed on the Vornado review site at all.

I assume you're responding to me because you didn't single anyone out.
Thanks because I could really use a powerful fan made for cooling the room.

Ditto. I have 6 Vornado fans. Will never buy another brand of fan again. Very tempted by this.

Found some information on our end that has it as 800 / 1500 watts.

THANK YOU, TT!

I wonder just how Woot! can put an item up for sale, WITH NO MODEL INFO?? "You can't prove we sent the wrong one, we didn't tell you what the right one is!"

Or, how can you sell a heater, without the ONLY pertinant spec, the Wattage?

Based on the picture, that's not remotely the same model.

It's a room we made in the garage. I would say about 2/3rds of the garage is the room, and the 1/3 is the laundry room, which will not need to be heated. I would also factor in poor insulation.

Tempted to buy this, but I'm a little concerned with the lack of information about this specific heater.

This is for a black model but otherwise I think it's the same:

Have one; doesn't work very well as a fan, and the thermostat control has no hysteresis in the design at all, so at the set point,it clicks on for a split second and turns right back off again. It uses a plain relay so it sparks each time it does this-
Only way to avoid it is to crank it up high enough to override the thermostat from operating.

I'm in the same boat. Also would like to hear more reviews about the thermostat shutting off too quickly. Won't do me much good in Minnesota...

I hope s(he) is responding to you because I used to have a woot-bought Vornado table top fan where the fan is clamped to the base and can be removed for convenient placement. It worked great until the fourth or fifth time it was dropped. After that, not so much. I've searched for another one like it and can't find it anywhere!

That one doesn't look like the one for sale here, and "mostly" constitutes most of the 6 reviews. So I wouldn't put too much weight on that.
