2 out of 5 eggsDied in 2 Years

Pros: worked well in small areas

Cons: was hoping it would heat my split level basement room which is about 300sq feet. There is no other heat in this room except base board electric heat. I was hoping to heat the room up with just the Dr. Heater and it was no where close to heating up the room. I had to place it by me to stay warm. My basement room does get cold in the winter, probably around 56 degrees with no heat on. I could have the Dr. Heater on for about 2 hours and barely notice a difference. But now it is 2 years later and it has died? Turned it on and it worked but then just stopped. Plug it in and nothing happens at all.

3 out of 5 eggsToo New To ReView

Pros: Price; Size;

Cons: Too early to review; can't make an intelligent review until more facts become available (time, use, longevity). It's like saying "I love my brand new car! It runs real well and everything works!" Everything should work when it's new. Tell me how your car is after 5-10 years of using it. I'll trust your reviews much more.

Other Thoughts: If it lasts 3 years (winters), I'll say it is okay. Any shorter, then it's plain cheap and of no real value.
I am weary when a claim is made that it's 60% more efficient or better than comparable models, when there are no facts, examples, independent studies or test results. It's like saying my car gets 60% better gas mileage than comparable cars out there. No facts + no proof = hot air (figuratively).

1 out of 5 eggsSave your money x5

Pros: You can use the remote as shown in the video...just a few inches from the heater!

Cons: People...a 1500 watt heater is a 1500 watt heater. There is not wattage difference between this and one costing $20. Do your homework and save your money. All 1500 watt heating devices, producing 1500 watts, will provide the same amount of heat. Don't believe me, look it up. Save your cash for a new video card.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price.

Pros: Cheap, heats quickly, great for spot heating where you are currently sitting.

Cons: controls leave a little to be desired. display doesn't always show the number that you'd like to see.

By default when on "auto" it shows the current thermostat setting and it's not incredibly intuitive to make it display the room temperature without switching it from "auto" to "high" to see if it's actually working.

Other Thoughts: heats a SMALL area the unit itself is about 2 cubic feet. Do not expect this to heat 1000 square feet as advertised. it couldn't manage a 2 degree temperature difference (from 66 to 68 degrees f. in the main area of my house which is about 1000sq. ft.)

that being said, when my house is set to 66 degrees in the Michigan winter and it's 20 degrees out side... this thing keeps the couch warm so we don't have to heat the whole house to 70+ to feel comfortable.

However, this thing heats our 150-200ish square foot bedrooms up within 15-20 minutes from 66 degrees to 70.

4 out of 5 eggsDr. Hoverer

Pros: Good Heat Output. Heats my bedroom in minutes, and it feels nice and warm inside.

Cons: I have a 1500 square foot apartment and it takes this heater about an hour to two hours to move up the temperature one degree and ends up hovering around 68-70 degrees. I can't get it to go much higher than that.

Other Thoughts: This is all in all a great heater, but I think it is best for smaller rooms and not an entire apartment. I live in upstate New York and figured this heater to cost about $0.20 per hour when its running on max settings. I reviewed many other heaters as well and found this one to be the most favorable of all. Hope this helps future buyers.
