Light Weight and Poor Quality
Fan stopped working 1 month out of warranty. Fan suddenly would only work full speed and became ridiculously noisy. Now just a standard heater with very limited capability. Very disappointed with this heater considering I've had Delonghi coffee machine which has been great.
I thought I’d have to park it in the middle of the room, but it sits quietly against the wall and heats up the living room so nice and quickly. Great heater, very happy.
Not good at all very poorly made!!! only good for heating up the wall as the design of the heater is all back to front.. and does not heat up large space waste of money...

Electricity Cost is high
Just bought this from Good guys, looking to replace my current fan heater, as i suspect is using more electricity otherwise that fan heater was working best in my tv lounge, anyway used only yesterday this new Delonghi on Medium and minimum settings, this heater has auto switch off function and fan (used in Max+ option, this option will use more electricity but will heat up quickly), didn't use the timer yet, today looked my electricity charges for yesterday use, looks the consumption increases a bit, will try another couple of days otherwise s...witch back to my old fan heater. The best bit of this heater is its quietness, no fan noise, will take time to heat up the area if you are not using in Max+ mode. Just an update to my previous review, I have returned this heater back to Good guys after paying stocking fees, compare electricity cost with my normal 2400 watt fan heater, this heater is on high side, so not fit for my purpose, also it take ages to warm the room as compare to fan heater, very quick,so its only good for those who can afford high electricity cost and wanted to have for a small room for overnight use,this heater was not able to warm my medium TV lounge.

Surely wouldn't recommend!
I purchased this product in May 2018. It stopped functioning after 5 months. Delonghi promptly replaced it with another piece, which again stopped working after 10 months (i.e. after about only 4 months usage during winter).
Great heater - worst instructions
I purchased this heater today and never have I seen instructions so hard to understand. Worse than ikea. There’s assembly required and the instructions give you no guidance. Love the heater but think the instructions should be simpler. You pay $139, you expect that the quality of the instructions would be high.
Good while it lasted.
Suitable for an average bedroom, couldn't cope with anything larger like a lounge room. We had to exchange it because the power/timer was glitching.
After exchanging it, our 2nd one lasted us about 2 winters and wouldn't turn on anymore. Delonghi referred me to some local service technician because it was out of warranty. Rubbish product.

Awesome for the price
We have a large house that it freezing and our reverse cycle air con doesn't quite reach our bedroom at bed time so we decided to buy a heater. Boy I'm glad we did! Not sure how we got by in previous winters without this heater. It only takes 5-10 minutes on high to heat our bedroom up before turning it down. Would definitely recommend this for medium sized bedrooms.
Slim, Stylish but a little ripper!
I bought this heater for my son's tiny bedroom therefore needed something that was slim and unnoticeable to fix to the wall. Never have we needed to turn the heater on full power. On the lowest setting you will get great heating results. The heater is very quiet so ideal for sleeping quarters.
Good little heater
Bought this a year ago, and overall pretty happy with it so far.
- It heats up a small to medium (3m X 3m) sized room quickly
- reasonably quiet, even with fan on
- compact, doesn't take up too much space
- well priced
- not effective in larger rooms

It heats very quick, not too noisy but not very quite as well. It's relevant safe near the kids, will not burn the kids. but it had a very bad smell when first used, and the smell last several time.
Good one, works fantastic but got a problem after 2 yrs, getting some short circuiting kind of noise...
Good one, works fantastic but got a problem after 2 yrs where it started with a noise when switched on, that we usually hear when something is short circuiting.. Seller had verified with manufacturer and they told that as its out of warranty by last year, they cannot do anything. Hence, asked them to dispose it off for me. In this context, I would say, may be ceramic tower heaters are good value for money and long lasting ??
1. Noise is very less compared to tower heaters.
2. Heat retains even when switched off not like fan heaters where you will feel cold after few mins, when switched off.
3. Effectively nice for 3x3 - 4x4 room.
1. Takes time to heat, may be need to switch on 15-20 min before bed to get the room heated....
Instant Heat..Very Light Weight Unit
Great Heater.. I like the fact it has a timer so it’s great for automatically coming on in the early morning and warming the room. Absolutely no complaints..I would definitely recommend this heater... and very light to move around as well.
Purchased from appliancesonline who always give free home delivery...
We have purchased 3 to take the chill out of the bed rooms. The wall mount kit is easy to install.
Instead of using the Integraded Thermostate we are using the heater mate Thermostate to have a better temperature control and also to be more energy efficient.
Once again great product, price and quality matches and highly recommended.

It's a good, effective heater with timer, thermostat and fan boost. When the heater has reached its selected heat, it 'shuts-down'. During this process, the thin metal panels make a noise, similar to metal being wobbled (as they cool down from the heat). So, it is a bit annoying as the heater runs on and off during thermostat cycles. Better supported or thicker metal panels could have prevented this.
Keeps us warm
Takes the chill out of the air very quickly, it warms our open living/kitchen area.
It doesn't take up much room, it nice and slim line against the wall when not in use.
The price was better than I expected it was nice to have change in my pocket after purchase.

Good price and good heating capabilities
I have lived with a gas heater for last 3 years but recently moved to a place with no gas, so wanted a heater that heated well and didn't break the bank. This one ticked most of the boxes when reading reviews and I love how it heats quietly, even in fan mode. We have a good size living room that extends to a dining room. I feel the heat is lost after about 3 meters back and I haven't received an electric bill to know how energy efficient they are but I also don't see why you would pay triple the price for a similar electric heater. If you can't go gas then these type of heaters are fine enough to do the job! I may buy another for the bedroom!
Heat up the room in no time
I love this unit comparing to oil heater with lower price and feature.
It does not occupy much space and heat up the bed room within few minutes on minimum setting.
It is light, and easy to carry any where you like. Highly recommended. Quickly grab it before it stops production.
Simple yet effective heater.
I am renting a property that doesn't have heating in the main living areas, not a gas bayonet. I needed to find electric heaters that are unobtrusive, effective and not overly expensive.
As the area I have to heat is quite large; lounge, kitchen/dining, and all hard surfaces (polished concrete) and no window treatments, I purchased two.
The worked perfectly to heat the are, and quietly.
We went out to dinner and I left them on low setting. When I returned, they had heated the front bedrooms also.
I haven't used the timer yet. The max fan setting is a bit loud, but realistically, you'd likely only use that to do a quick heat up.
I'm really pleased with their performance. Would recommend.
Great even in confined spaces
I brought this at bunnings on clearance at the end of season for my camper trailer as I wanted a heater small enough to take and also light enough that it wasn't going to weigh us down. It is compact and light enough to do this and unlike small blow heaters because the air is coming out from the top it isn't uncomfortable and too hot we had it going in our camper trailer and we didn't feel too hot at all yet my parents had a small blow heater in their caravan which was a larger area and we were feeling overheated. We have consequently leant it to them to use. I am not sure how it would go in a large space though.
Questions & Answers
I purchased this heater but when I turn it to Max Plus it turns itself off after a few minutes and does not restart again although I have the thermostat on maximum.
Should I return the product or is some adjustment possible?
We have the same problem with ours. It started doing it after 3 months of use. It keeps switching itself off sometimes after couple hours, sometimes after few minutes like it's overheated. I have to turn it off and unplug it and wait till the overheating sensor switches off and then start again but it will usually happen again. Its very annoying as it is the only heater in the living room and it's currently 9 degrees outside. Let us know if you find out anything new.
I want to use a smart home plugin. If the dial is on, does the heater start heating as soon as it's plugged in or do I need to interact with it every time I plug it in?
It depends on what the thermostat is set to. If it is set to minimum then it won't come on. Anything above that it will come on automatically when the room temp is lower than the temp that the thermostat is set to (standard thermostatic operation). If set correctly I'm sure it would turn on once you turn on the smart plug.
