Cheap and …. so far so good!
I have a pretty large open plan area in a timber framed house, off the ground that has no insulation adjacent saltbush scrub - in otherwords, on the edge of desert like conditions so it gets <expletive> cold in winter with the house dropping down to literally near 0C. While the heater won't turn it into a cozy warm area, what it will do is take the edge off the freezing temperatures, really really well. And for the most part I only need it on the 1250W setting with fan. For the price and what it does to getting that chill off could not be ha...ppier. It has lasted all winter without any issues. Some components are clearly very cheaply made but I have managed to score a fairly decent example so timer and switches etc have not caused any concerns. I will shift this unit 5 mins before I go to bed in an ice box of a bedroom and when I walk in you can feel the chill lifted. They do cost a bit to run looking at 50+ cents an hour on 1250W setting (SA power tariffs) and the 750W setting is probably a little low to be effective. Overall definitely recommend.

Plugged it in heated room to the required heat quite fast and the thermostat kept the room heated as set. Remote control worked ok and I am pleased with it
Love the timer feature
I've searched whole market and can't find any other Convection Heater with Timer better than this. Normally you need to pay at least $50 more just for timer feature. I set it up for automatic heat up at night and in the morning, so I can walk home or wake up in warm room.
Compare with the $150 Delonghi heater I purchased for living room, this one is smaller and quieter, good for bedroom but not for living room. Unsure why both heater are over 2000kw, but Delonghi heater can cover 60sqm but Kmart one can only cover 20sqm.

two timer failures
Decent inexpensive heater when it works. However, we have had two of these DL01D heaters. The first had a faulty timer from the beginning - it was so stiff to move that my wife could not manage it and I found it very hard.
Replaced with a second example in late May. Worked fine from when the evenings got cold until three days ago. Now the timer will not advance beyond 11am. It will be returned for a refund as they have no stock.
Great small heater, heats quickly.
Purchased only a few months ago as my daughters room had no heater duct. It heated it so quickly! Has some great features, especially the fan which heats very quickly. I love this heater and would not hesitate buying another one. I went back and they were sold out!! Best heater I've purchased to date.
This is great! It's a LOT cheaper than many other heaters out there, heats up a room quick, and if you need to boost it, it has a fan.
It also comes with a manual timer with quality plastic timing clips, which is easy to use. The plastic clips are a little small (so you might need to use a pen to flick them on or off. I do it ok, and my fingers are probably a little big) it really is a great buy. I bought it as I'd purchased a Kmart heater a few years earlier, and needed a second one for a guest room. This is now my everyday heater, and the or...
Questions & Answers
I bought it 2 months ago and it's not working .what's the warranty on replacement?
I can't seem to work out how to turn the temperature up? It's set on 15C and I try to turn it up but it goes back to 15. Can anyone help? Thanks.
Thanks for your reply Kaylie. There are no dials on the side of the heater we have. There are small buttons on the front that can be pushed up & down with a small remote. I do that but it doesn't stay to the temp I put & goes back to 15.
