Vornado VMH500 Whole-Room Metal Heater with Remote is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Heater I've ever purchaced ! I use this in my bedroom. I can get a great night sleep. I don't wake up sweating from constant heat or cold because temperature doesn't properly regulate. I would recommend it to anyone that was looking for a room heater. I do feel the products are a bit pricey but the products are excellent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Annoying humming noise, and unresponsive remote control. This heater has a constant annoying humming noise. Also remote control is very unresponsive even with a new battery. It was sent to me to replace a VH10 which was my original choice, but was returned with problem. I think I`m going to return this one also.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Plug started to melt after 3 wks usage. Now, I provided a review once before, but that was before it started to overheat my wall socket. I noticed it this weekend where the socket was looking a little charred. I unplugged the unit, and discovered that the cord had started to melt. This is the first one I have ever had to do that. I do have to agree with the previous reviews about the remote, it is rather flimsy. I don't even bother using it. I had received this heater to test out, for 2-3 weeks it was fantastic, then as I said, it started to melt at the plug in. So, I do recommend, but with a caveat, YOU MUST WATCH the cord. I will not be able to use this unit any longer because of this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, well made heater in a small box The heater works beautifully on high. It has a quiet, soft hum which is not at all annoying. In fact, I find it works as white noise making it easier for me to concentrate. On low heat there is a hum but I cannot hear the fan. The fan is a little louder when on the fan only setting. This unit warms up a 150 sq ft room very quickly on the high heat setting. On the low heat setting it doesn't heat the room well as well since the fan isn't pushing the air far. BUT it did a good job of maintaining the warmth once the room was warmed up using the high setting. Remote is great for people who might have a hard time getting up from a chair or bed to make adjustments to the settings. One big negative for me is that the cord is too short for the location I had hoped to use it. It is not recommended to plug this heater into an outlet that has other high wattage appliances on the same circuit. Because of this I had to plug it into a hall outlet outside the intended room. It just barely reached the doorway. The second location I would use it is the living room. There again I felt the cord was too short to get it away from furniture and curtains, as recommended. Also, the cord does get a little warm. This is normal for high wattage items since my 1500 watt professional iron does the same thing. I always unplug it when I walk away anyhow. The instructions have a lot of information about what type of outlets should be used or not and this is good. I called their customer service with some questions about this, they answered very quickly and were helpful. Lights on the same circuit dimmed very slightly when the heat kicked on. My 1500 watt iron does the same thing. Again, I don't leave that iron or this heater plugged in when not in use. Overall, for my use in the small bedroom of my townhouse, this unit was too big and powerful. I looked at the Vornado website..they have a "personal" sized one that is lower watts (uses less electricity) which would be better for my small townhouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful small heater, highly recommend! This heater really packs a punch! It's small in size and easy to move from room to room should you need to. I love that it is adjustable, you can adjust the temp, and just use the fan if you wish. It may be small but it heats quite a large area. I have an open dining room/kitchen that I have been using this heater in and it heats both rooms with ease. It's very quiet, not even a hum. I would purchase this heater over and over. I feel safe using it, the outside casing doesn't get hot to the touch and with 2 small children and 3 indoor dogs, that was a huge concern to me. Again, I would highly recommend this heater! I'd be looking at more in the future! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great heater We currently use this product in our family room. We love the compact heater and the ability to set a temperature at which we want the room so that the heater comes on and off as necessary. We also used this product in our garage while doing some work. It kept us nice and warm, while not being big and bulky and in the way. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Efficient Heater I have Ever Used! After testing the Vornado,which I received complimentary, I can honestly say I will never purchase another brand. We have a very large great room,and it heated the entire room. My husband took it into our attached garage and could not believe how well it heated it. I am about the warmth,the quietness,while my husband is about the construction and durability,when it comes to a heater. The product met both our expectations. It is quiet,effective,and constructed well. I loved the ability to adjust the temperature. Our other heater is all or nothing;it's on or it's off. We were capable of keeping the room at a nice constant temperature. The heater stayed cool to the touch and we had no fear of it tipping over. We also liked the remote! That was very convenient. I highly recommend the Vornado! I think it is a good investment. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Cheap remote. Mushy response to buttons being pushed on remote or unit. Sometimes they work most times multiple button pushes to get the unit to respond. Will be returning. For the price the thing should just flat out perform better. Instead of just being the worlds most expensive small room heater. Maybe I got a faulty unit?
