Vornado® Touch Screen Whole Room Heater
I was looking for a heater to heat a large, open living room/kitchen area. After trying a couple of other heaters, I am glad I decided to give this one a chance. My downstairs gets chilly while the upstairs is toasty warm. This heater keeps both levels of my home balanced and it is quite comfortable both upstairs AND downstairs. My furnace is getting a break as well as it does not kick on nearly as much. The heater is very quiet and easy to operate on both the remote control and the digital display. Vornado provides excellent customer service as well...the remote that came with my heater was defective, and after calling I received a replacement remote in the mail within 2 days. All in all, I recommend this heater without reservation!

I love this heater
This has been the coldest winter in years in Southern California--I know, we don't really know what cold is.....But like many California residences, mine is not well-insulated and before this heater, I couldn't ever get warm. It has been a life saver --so easy to set up and I LOVE the remote. I can get it started before I get up in the morning and turn it off when I go to sleep. It heats evenly and gently and I just love it!

Vornado TV500 heater
I have used many different types of room heaters, but this one outshines them all. The top of the unit has a clear LED readout and the temperature control with remote is wonderful. But the best part of all in these tough economic times is that there is very little electric usage for them. I have had mine for five years with no problems at all and just placed an order for three more for our other homes.

No cool spots
I have used this heater for 3 years now. I don't understand all the negative reviews. This heater out performs any of the other heaters. This heater heats the "whole" room as it says without the cold spots associated with the way other heaters work. Also, the company backs up their products. You have to realize the way this heater works, and not to expect hot air to blow from it like other heaters. In saying this, it warms up the whole room. Something you won't find any other heaters do. Also, this is suppose to be used as a supplemental heater,and not a sole source of heat. Some people's expectations are unrealistic when it comes to "room heaters'. thumbs up to Vornado! Thank you! your heaters are great.

sturdy metal with pleasing design
I was surprised that this unit is sturdy, quality metal construction and attractive.
Perfect for taking the chill off my 15 x 17 bedroom or 22 x 20 family room without having to engage the costly heat pump.
The controls and indicators are especially satisfactory. The room temperature and mode of operation remain visible after the TVH is powered on.
Compared to my Vornado iControl this TVH 500 is noticibly noisier. That said, I liked this model so much that I immediately ordered another one.

Love it. Buying another.
TL; DR version:
Exceptional quality. Super quiet operation. Does exactly what it says it does. Reliable. Features are convenient. Pricey but it's saved me hundreds of dollars in heating so it's more than paid for itself.
I've had my Vornado for a few years now (TVH 500) and am looking to buy another one just like it or upgrade to the TVH 600.
I love this thing. I don't have to worry that I'll bump into it and get a burn. Or that it'll get knocked over (it's super stable and quite difficult to knock over).
Where I live, the wall heaters are horrible and inefficient. This heater has saved me hundreds of dollars a month in heating bills during winter. I love the thermostat - I never have to get up to adjust it and because it's so efficient, I don't worry about a crazy electric bill if I forget to turn it off before going to work. It's super quiet and while it might not be the prettiest thing in the world, it isn't ugly.
I'm writing this review because I really love this heater. And while it's cool that consumers get to read about complaints so they can make an educated purchase, I felt compelled to speak well on this heater's behalf so that they can get a more balanced view on the product. This is actually the first review I've ever written on a website.
My only complaints are that it's a bit pricey and the beep sound when a button is pressed annoys me. But it's hard to complain too much because the quality and features are great - I feel so spoiled by this product that even though there are lower-priced Vornados, I don't want anything less than this particular model; I'm that attached to it. It's more than paid for itself many times over. I'm only buying a second one because I took the first one to work. Turns out, my new job has me working with a bunch of polar bears who love to crank up the ac - even in the winter.

This unit has completely taken me by surprise! For such a small heater I was not expecting much of a heat output. But, on the high heat setting this heater brought my bedroom, of about 12 by 15 feet, to the perfect temperature and I am just amazed at how fast it was heated. I would definitely recommend this to a friend!
