The Vornado Vortex Heater EH1-0028-06 is relatively expensive compared to similar space heaters, but one professional test deems it the best space heater overall. It heats effectively and the fan works particularly well to distribute warm air throughout the room, according to this review. Owners like the digital thermostat, though some say it isn't accurate. However, we read a number of complaints about early breakdowns for this model. Considering that similar space heaters cost less, these owners say the Vornado heater should be more durable. The Lasko 754200 Ceramic Heater with Adjustable Thermostat (*Est. $30) doesn't seem to have the same reliability problems, but owners say it can be noisy.
