I thought I would have to hover near this heater to keep warm, but it heats the entire room (and then some). The oscillating feature distributes the heat evenly so there are no "cold spots" in the room. This isn't just an/off type heater. There are several choices for heating - Hi/Low fan, oscillate, no fan, thermostat, and timer. It's also very quiet. I ran out of heating oil and was very worried about being cold. This heater is not only efficient, it's given me peace of mind. Buy it!
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Lots of Features, Nice Design, unobstrusive

Review 2 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
I've owned this heater for 4 years and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. it operates seamlessly (and nearly silently) in auto mode, which uses a thermostat to regulate the unit. It's appearance is appealing to the eyes, and the digital display is very useful. I especially appreciate that it constantly displays the current room temperature. Last, but not least, it makes the entire room feel warm and the unit itself is cool to the touch. Hope this helps in your decision.
Pros: Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

Review 3 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
I have this heater and the Lasko 751320 heater as well. The advantage of this heater over the 751320 is the digital temp display, and when heating on high it is a little quieter. Otherwise it's the same high quality, reliable space heater that I've come to trust from Lasko. It's rated to do 300 sq ft, and probably can if the room doesn't have wicked high ceilings and it's decently insulated. I'm using it in a 12x15 room with 8' ceilings and it works great. It'll go from 63 to 73 in under an hour. Keep it clean, and it'll work a good long time.

Review 4 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
The heater is fine, I like the 3 year warranty, but the one thing this heater is missing is the ability to set it to the LOW heat/power setting and have it turn off/on with the built in thermostat. To me this is poor logic, why force the user to put it on HIGH to run it using the thermostat??? Why I ask? No good reason, just a way of making it cheaper I suppose.
If you don't mind that part, it seems to be a good heater with limited turning range when oscillating. Again, cheap design.
All that said, I'm not regretting buying it.
Whatever you do, don't buy a Bxxnxire (I'm not allowed to mention competitors), they are absolute JUNK! Hence my reason for buying the Lasco.
Pros: Easy to Use
Cons: poor logic design could be better.

Review 5 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
I have a 2 story, 1600 sq ft house. I heat with oil normally but with the price at $3.80 a gallon, I decided to offset the oil heat with this. It uses the same electricity as a large window a/c unit. I set my regular thermostat way down and put this unit in the center of the house at the entry to the upstairs with fans on low to circulate air, and it keeps the furnace from kicking on more than a few times a day. I checked my last electricity bill to find out how much I pay per kwH. You can do this by dividing your total bill amount by the # of kwH's used. Mine (before I bought the unit) was $127 for 843 kwH so I pay approximately 15 cents per kwH. This unit is 1500 watts. That means 1.5 kw per hour or 1.5 kwH. If I used this unit nonstop for an entire month-which is about 730 hours-it would cost me about 164$, which is much cheaper than the oil heat. The equation is 22.5 cents(1.5 kwH X15 cents per kwH) times 730 hours. That gives you $164. You would have to add your normal energy usage to this. So even if I ran the unit 24/7, and it added the $164 to my usual $127, my next bill would be $291 for heat and electricity-still cheaper than the $380 it cost me for a 100 gallon fill up of fuel, which lasts about 5 weeks in the coldest part of winter. If you want to reduce your electric bill while using this product, unplug any electric power items you have when they're not in use, and use natural light to light your rooms as much as possible. Use cold water to wash your clothes and reuse towels. It really works to save money-this is how I have my bill so low in the first place, in a house full of electronics. Unplug, unplug, unplug! It takes 2 seconds. This will balance out the electricity usage. I think it's a good deal :)

Review 6 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
I have only owned one other heater and so I have limited experience but - WOW - do I love this thing! It generates amazing heat FAST and judging by our utility bills since we have used it, it seems to have made no difference in our monthly bills at all although we only use it to supplement our baseboard heat. Its surface remains cool to the touch, it is lightweight and easy to move from spot to spot or floor to floor. I originally got this for a basement room that is unheated and I was having people sleep there on air mattresses. Each person who had the pleasure of its company for the night raved about how toasty warm they were. Since then I have had the thing sitting either in front of my chair or in front of my in-laws' (in their 80's) to make sure the spot is warm and cozy. The rotating feature is awesome too when you want to have the heat reach many in the room. Our living room is quite large and open - about 18x30 and it still raises the temp on the thermostat at the other end of the room.

Review 7 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
I have to say the this heater has exceeded my expectations as far as how much it would heat up my rooms. I purchased 2 one for my bedroom (350 SQ. FT.) and one for my living dining area (750 SQ. FT.) and they heat up these rooms fast and very warm. The remote control is a nice feature when you don't want to get up off the sofa or outta bed.

Review 8 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
I have a 70 year 4 floor old home in central PA. Bought 2 heaters sufficiently heats 2&3 flr. with oilburner very rarely turning itself on. Suprisingly electric had a small increse when comparing to the oil i would have used. These are the best space heaters I ever used when looking at electric cost and heater effectiveness
Pros: Easy to Use, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

Review 9 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
Since we just started using the Lasko ceramic heater it is hard to tell how efficient it will be, until we get an electric bill. However, we have used it on a few cold mornings we have had to heat a 12 by 15 ft. sun room. It has raised the temperature in that room 9 degrees in 15 minutes, from 60 to 69. The outside temperature was 54. Did notice that the electric cord got slighty warm when heating for the 15 minutes. If the heater is on for over an hour in the cold weather we will be monitoring the cord's temperature.

Review 10 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
Much smaller than a lot of the space heaters I've seen and it looks very nice. It is very easy to use, the remote is handy. It works very well and is very quiet! I don't worry about it being too hot with my dog walking by it either. It is great and a lot cheaper than others I have seen. I was planning on buying another for the kitchen but with the door open in the bedroom it heats our very small apartment nicely.

Review 11 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
The dirty little secret of electric heating is that all 1500W ceramic heaters produce the same amount of heat (that's what the 1500W means!). 1500W is the max on a standard 120V electric circuit, so don't be fooled into thinking some other expensive unit is going to do any better. Instead, shop for reliability of parts, noise factor, and whether the product gets hot to the touch.
That's what we did with this heater, and we couldn't be happier. It works great in our finished basement, which is otherwise unheated. It stays cool to the touch, is very quiet, and has a great track-record with long-term users.
We definitely recommend it. You'll save a bunch over fancier designs, and you'll be just as warm.

Review 12 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
I am very satisfied with this product. I have one very cold room in my house as a result of structural issues. I tried several space heaters, but none was effective. I then had gas logs put in the fireplace in that room. One could feel the logs putting off heat, but the draft of the fireplace also let in lots of cold air -- more of the latter than the former. This heater had good reviews previously, so i decided to try it. It will raise the temperature of the room (a rather large one) by four degrees in under 10 minutes. I am very happy with this heater.
Pros: Easy to Use, High Quality, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

Review 15 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
This product works fine so far, but I've only had it running for a couple of weeks. What I don’t like is the control logic. The thermostat auto control function only works with the unit in high which results in numerous on off cycles when it’s not really cold. The remote is something that I consider dumb. It only gives you the same functions that are on the face of the heater but no remote thermostat. The temperature at the unit might be what you set it for but you will get hot then cold across the room. I guess the remote would save you the trouble of getting off the couch to turn the heater up or down.

Review 18 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
This oscillating portable tower heater is a great addition to our home. It warms a room quickly and quietly and is light weight so it is easy to move. Great digital display, easy to read, even in the dark.

Review 19 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
Our bedroom fireplace stopped working and receiving replacement parts has become an ongoing problem. We purchased this electric heater once the weather got colder and have been very comfortable ever since. It is stable so that we don't need to worry about our dogs knocking it over and is so quiet it will never interfere with your sleep. At this rate, if our fireplace parts never arrive this winter, I'm sure we'll all be comfortable. Thank you for this excellent product.

Review 20 for 23 in. 1500-Watt Ceramic Tower Heater with Digital Display and Remote Control
I moved into a master bedroom of a house where the heat has yet to be turned on. I decided to purchase this unit after browsing for awhile and reading other reviews on the site. I can honestly say that this unit is worth every penny.
It heats the room evenly, and I love the temperature settings! I can set it to a desired temperature and not worry about leaving it on all night. The oscillating feature also works quite nicely.
The remote is also a nice feature for when I am in bed, but I will say that I wish there was a way to turn off the beeping noise it makes every time you change a setting.
In terms of noise, it's pretty quiet. I don't know what other reviewers are referring to with their noise complaints, because I have none.
Bottom line: If you need an easily-portable space heater, buy this one! You won't be sorry!
