Good price. Also to note, it was this price a couple of months back, too. Thanks, OP.

Have one. Mind you that the heating element is less than 50% of that black mesh insert, so it heats up higher region

I don't like these Lasko heaters compared to the Bionaire brand (previous heaters). The Lasko one has no memory. Everytime you turn on the heater it is set to some default setting. So, I always have to set it up to the temperature that I want and press the button to swivel the the heater.

Also, they don't seem to heat up the room as quickly as the Bionaire ones. The Lasko heater stays on for a very long time and has a hard time heating up my bedroom to 22 degrees. Unless the Bionaire one is giving off the wrong temperature reading the Bionaire heater will actually stop blowing heat at 22 degrees and turn on again later as the air gets cooler.

Each button makes an extremely loud beeping sound. I have no idea why Lasko did this. I find this so annoying. I wish there was a way to mute the beeps.

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks its lack of memory is ridiculous.

I actually emailed Lasko asking about this because I thought my heater was broken. They said that none of their heaters have a memory function. That seems ridiculous for a $60 heater (regular price).

All electric heaters that plug into a regular outlet are basically the same in terms of the heat they put out. They're all near 100% efficient and all put out something around 1500W or so. Some have different methods of heating or distributing the heat; there's also various controls, timers, etc.; but the end result is more or less the same whether you buy a $40 heater or a $200 one...


Here's some guy to explain it all, lol:

Every one of these complaints lines up with mine about this specific heater. It would blast heat forever and absolutely cook the room just to get to 22 degrees, but set it to 21 and the room feels much cooler. I think it had a thermostat issue.

I hated the beeps, and my unit put out an argument chemical smell for weeks to the point that I had to return it, like burning solvent or something.

Sticking with Bionaire.
