Comment:
We bought the Bionaire BCH9208 about 4 years ago and it has worked flawlessly for the wife's computer room. I now have a BCH9212 in my office and it has matched its predecessor's performance for about 1.5 years so far. It heats up my office (10'x12' with a vaulted ceiling) quickly and maintains a fairly even temperature without a problem while in oscillate mode. I like to prop my feet up in front of it while reading to keep my toes toasty. (Not too close, though, since it puts out a lot of heat!). <br />I'm curious about the listed retail price here though, it seems a tad high.

Comment:
I liked this product, but after only one winter's worth of use it started to smell like it was burning… For the price it should certainly last longer. I wouldn't recommend.
