Rated 1 out of 5 by TwinGirlsMommy Fair, not good.
We put this heater in our twin babies' room, but first we tried it for a few nights in our room. First thing I noticed as soon as I laid down in bed, the blinking red light had to stop, it was so annoying, it lit up our whole bedroom. So my husband covered the little light with black electrical tape. Who would want that in their baby's room?! Babies are so sensitive and I'll do anything to keep them asleep at night. Second thing, the heater cuts on/off constantly, which is kind of annoying, luckily it doesn't wake our girls. When setting the unit and pushing buttons it constantly cuts off because it thinks I tipped it over, so it takes me a good 3-5 tries to set this thing each evening when we get home. On the weekends, during the day, with the light on in their bedroom the lights will go dim/brighter because this unit pulls so much power! That's not good for our electric bill. Also, I put the little thermometer across the room, velcroed to the closet door handle so there wouldn't be any obstructions for it to get a proper temp reading. Then the heater will read "set temp 70 degrees" and "actual temp of 72 degrees". So that says to me that it realizes that it's not working correctly and still doesn't correct itself. What the heck? Wait a minute, this a VORNADO heater that's made for the most sensitive room in the house, the baby's room!!! And I paid how much?! So we've been looking for a better heater ever since we bought this thing, just been busy with the holidays and the girls' birthday. I'll be taking this thing back real soon.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Hot and Bothered Are other reviewers serious???
I opened the box and wanted to love this product. Unfortunately it ended at the packaging. I turned it on and the remote did not work. It caused the heater to click on and off constantly because it loses signal. I even tried to set the remote next to it to no avail. I would recommend not using it. The good news is that it is a usable heater without it. My frustrations continued when I could hear a really loud click every time the heat changed in the room. You try to set a temperature and the heater apparently tries to hold to it exactly by clicking to adjust the temperature lower as soon as it gets hotter and higher as soon as it gets colder. This click happens literally every 60-90 seconds. If I can't even sleep with the click through the monitor, how can my baby? Once you get past the click, you then find out that constant on and off actually just keeps increasing the temperature. We set ours for 74 degrees and woke up only to see the temperature in our baby's room at 80 by the other thermometer we had in there. The bottom line is that it heats but a completely ineffective execution of the stated goals of the product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by juditupp Best space heater I've ever used
I used this space heater all last winter. It kept the bedroom nice and warm.
Rated 5 out of 5 by John D Excellent 5 year guarantee!
Our Sunny CS quit working on the high heat setting after about 11 months. I called the customer service line and they sent us a brand new replacement that arrived a few days later. No hassles! This heater/fan is perfect for infants and newborns and the remote sensor keeps the room warm and comfortable. Thanks so much, Vornado.

My one and only complaint about this heater is, the crib side sensor doesn't stay connected no matter how far or how close it is to the heater.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Amy B Nice Little Heater
I really liked the idea of this unit and overall it works well. I did have trouble with the "hidden cord" feature as my curious 2-yr-old took all of about 30 seconds to figure out how to open the bottom and pull out the cord. I also found it a little inconvenient that you have to be standing right over the display in order to read it--you can't be off to the side and you can't tip the fan to one side or the safety shut-off feature turns it off. The crib monitor has a velcro strap which is not secured to the device, which my child also easily removed. It does provide nice heat, isn't overly loud when running (though the clicking sound when it turns off and on is a little loud in the dead of night), and looks fun--all three of my kids wanted it in their rooms!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Mom Couple deal breaker flaws
I really wanted to love this heater with all of its great features. However, after using it there are a couple flaws that I'm afraid are making this unit unusable for us. First is the display light. There is not an option to turn this light off and in our otherwise dark nursery it is a significant amount of light. If you have a kiddo that likes a nightlight you may like this feature but for us it's a downside. Second is when the unit's heating element turns on and off it makes an audible clicking noise. Loud enough to be heard over our white noise, and enough to make an almost asleep baby start looking around the room to try and find where the noise is coming from. Maybe other babes aren't as sensitive or curious but this is extremely distracting for ours. Can't say we're happy with this heater for our nursery.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Katie the newbie Put remote sensor batteries in correctly!
This is a great heater, albeit a little pricey. For the safety features and quality it's worth it though! My only complaint, which really isn't a complaint, is that I wish the manual had shown a picture of where the green light would be when the remote is connected. I was trying to set it up and thought maybe it came with bad or backwards batteries in remote. I couldn't see any green light on the unit. Hubby said batteries are in right because HE put them in. Well the green light showed up when I checked the batteries and found HE put them in backwards. I would've figured out something was wrong sooner had I known where to look for the green light, I think.
