Comments:

The Heat Bud is about as simple as it gets - a no-frills personal space heater that's affordably priced and economic to use. It runs very quiet if you're using it in a professional setting, and is also perfect for college dorms, a cubicle, a small office, and cute enough to put on top of your desk. Other creative uses we've heard of: keeping a small gardening room from freezing.

Keep in mind this a personal heater - it doesn't have the power to heat a whole room - but it will keep the immediate vicinity pretty warm. If it's under your desk, your feet will be warm. On top, it will keep your face and hands warm. As long as your expectations don't exceed what it's designed to do, you will probably be happy with it.

Be aware that the front grill design is very open. That, combined with the slanted front panel makes it very easy for pet hair to get in. For that reason, we do not recommend this for pet owners. Also, if you have small children with tiny fingers keep it well out of their reach or use with close supervision.

If you need to heat a larger area, consider the Lasko 765200 - not much larger than the Heat Bud, but with 900 / 1500 watt settings.
