    I love this heater. I returned two other models before buying this one. I researched it on the web and found it to be the best rated for the money. I use it to heat a converted garage that has very little heat. It does the job! The other space heaters did not raise the temp more than two or three degrees in hours and this raises the temp nearly ten degrees in an hour or less. I did not believe a heater this small could do the job but it does! The safety features are great- if I move it while on, it will turn off which makes me feel safe. The remote and timer are a great convenience, and it is very quiet!!! I highly recommend this product!

    The heater is encased in a solid secure feeling little housing. I expected a more substantial heater with perhaps a stronger flow of air than I got with this. The strength and ability to heat a room compares with other tiny space heaters I own which were a third of the price, so it was a disappointment. However, I do like that the plug is grounded and that the heater won't likely tip over easily, so would recommend it if this was the primary concern. Other than that, I wasn't impressed.

    Seems to work well

    Comments about Vornado Touchstone Vortex Heater (TVH500):

    This heater seems to work pretty well. We have a very large open space in need of heating, and it doesn't get quite as warm as I was hoping. But the safety features are very good, and it's never hot to the touch.

    Consumer Reports said this is higher rated than more costly Eden heater. I bought two for cold conference rooms and they work great. The chilled ladies in the office are happy.

    nice and quiet

    Comments about Vornado Touchstone Vortex Heater (TVH500):

    I am happy with the heat this throws. It is very, very quiet. However, The remote doesn't tell you what settings you are using so I find it only useful for shutting off. It is a little weird trying to figure out temp settings, but I find when I manually hit the buttons on top, I seem to get it right. I am not sure, but it must have a thermostat in it, because sometimes it just stops but the red light, indicating it is ON is on. Have no idea how much electricity it uses, but of all portable heaters, this one is dead quiet. Nice and heats up the room easily.

    good for small spaces

    By Bob

    Comments about Vornado Touchstone Vortex Heater (TVH500):

    It heats my small office in a reasonable amount of time. I tried my larger family room ( 250 sq. ft. ) and it was very slow to feel the difference. I like the timer when I take it into the bedroom.

    High quality product

    By Ben

    from USA

    Comments about Vornado Touchstone Vortex Heater (TVH500):

    I've had this product for one month and I am very pleased so far. I've had Vortex fans before that were amazing so I was already pleased with this company. The higher price of their fans was worth it, so I took a chance on the heater as well.

    My bedroom is upstairs in basically a renovated attic of my formerly one-story rental home. It started getting chilly in the fall and our central heat doesn't really have much punch upstairs. This is a very compact heater, but it really heats well despite the small size. I find that the Vortex noticeably heats the room in 10-20 minutes tops. I LOVE the temperature control. You can set a temp that you find comfortable and the Vortex will gauge the room temp and activate the heating process accordingly (perfect for sleeping). I like that it has a remote, which I've used; however, because the temp control works so well I don't need to adjust it much. The heater stays cool to the touch, even after a full night of heating my room. This makes me feel that it is much safer than cheaper models.

    There are a couple of downsides but they are minor enough that I still wanted to give 5 stars. First, it is a little pricey but I feel that it's performance makes it worth the price. I knew I didn't want a small, cheap model from Target or Wal-Mart. In my experience, those things are REALLY hot within a few feet but don't do much heating beyond that. The only other downside, which I read elsewhere, is that the beep is pretty loud when changing temperature. It's not loud enough that it would bother me alone, but it is loud enough that it disturbed my girlfriend while she was sleeping. Me, no biggie.

    Overall great product.

    Great space heater! It heats up fast and the fan evenly distributes the heat. You will love the remote control and the timer feature. The digital display seems highly accurate.

    For some reason, our bedroom seemed to be colder than the rest of the house. We ordered this, turned it on in the evening and it works like a charm. I'm not cold anymore.
