This is a good value heater which does what it says on the tin. This type of heater is only good for sitting in front of, rather than a room warmer but gives effective instant heat (and a fair amount of light). The light is a bit too bright when fully on 1200w but typical of this style of heater. My only complaint is that the instructions says not to use it with an extension cable, but the cable attached to the heater is not long enough to reach a power point (not where I want to use it anyway!) which is a bit silly, but I suspect that the guidance is meant to protect manufacturer against any and all comebacks. Anyway it works fab with an extension cable!! The oscillating feature is marvellous, making it easier to share the heat.
