Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oscillating Heater - 1200W
Bought this as my old one packed in. Good price compared to other places. My only gripes is that 1) the lead is too short and I now have to plug it in via an adapter to place it where I want it. My old heater lead was twice the length. 2) The buttons all say 400W where my old one says 400w 800w and 1200w and 3) I wouldn't place orders again (unless supplied by Amazon) leading into a weekend as processing does not start until the Monday. I have to work weekends and expect other shops to do so too! lol hense the 4*(Amazon being the exception as they are 24hrs) Overall pleased with item. Would order again. Arrived well packed.
6th november - ordered another ones of these. clicked on my previous order and up it popped but only to find on receipt it had come from a different seller and was half the size..strange - this was a dinky small one. had a longer lead though and still 1200w but not as expected. orderering another one for someone else so not sure what size will arrive. negative is, instructions don't tell you how to replace the bulbs as they are readily available to buy..may email seller to ask. still a great buy compared to high street/supermarket prices..we have sort of worked out for a rough idea they cost around 15p per hour to run on 3 bars at 1200w depending on supplier if that helps but we may be wrong.
12th Nov - just purchased another one. The same size of my first purchase arrived so if looking for a large heater for the money it needs to be the Elpine heater. Again as my first lead is too short and buttons all say 400w. Only one of the sellers sent instructions on how to change the bulbs but complicated and given the price of the bulbs you would be as well ordering another heater. Apart from that pleased with heater now have one downstairs and upstairs via yet another adapter. Remember to allow heater to cool down before moving after switching of as instructions say not doing this could damage the bulbs - they recommend 10mins cool down.
16th Nov - more were needed for other rooms so went to place yet another order with same seller. unfortunatley price error on product page as heater was showing at £112.77ea. I paid £12.77. Have sent 4 messages and one email direct to the supplier 'getdirectshop' to check/correct price so I could order more but no one had replied. Had to go through all the ones advertised and finally found some approx same price but probably won't be the same kind/Elpine make I have. As long as they work I will be happy. Very disappointed with seller because no one has responded to my messages. Tried to contact Amazon to complain but finding a place to contact Amazon proving impossible..hence the reason for an update on this page.
