Takeaway: Fast heating with safety shutoff.

The unit comes with an instruction manual and the heater. The unit has a slightly larger footprint than my current space heater at 9 in tall with a 6 inch square base. The power cable is 6 ft long and the unit has a tip safety switch on the bottom which will automatically turn the unit off if the unit is knocked over.

There are 2 dials on the top of this space heater. The right one is the on/off control and you can put the unit in fan only 750 W or 1500 W for faster and higher heating temperatures. On the left is the analog temperature control which allows you to set the temperature from low to high. When on, the red indicator light here will illuminate. The instructions note that for quick heating and comfort to set the unit to high when you turn it on and once the desired temperature is reached, turn down the temperature dial until the unit shuts off. This will allow the unit to maintain the temperature at this level consistently by cycling on and off periodically. I set the unit to high at 1500 Watt for one hour and the temperature increased from about 65 degrees Fahrenheit to 75. The fan on the unit is moderately loud. When in fan mode, the heating element will be off and the temperature control adjuster just controls the amount of air flow from the fan.

Overall, the heating capabilities of the unit are fine and the unit's safety tip switch functions as advertised.
