Thumbs up for both VMinnovations and Vornado. They ship fast from Indianapolis and most Vornados carry a 5 year warranty. They've replaced a few for me over the years without any hassle...just send them a pic of the serial number and then cut the power cord.
I can definitely attest to that. Sent them an email earlier this month because mine failed on me. A week later, they asked for a photo of the heater with the serial number and power cord snipped. They are supposedly mailing one via FedEx, so I should hopefully get it soon.

I would like to know this as well
The page says "It offers low and high heat settings, along with a fan setting for those warmer days."

Great deal on a great little heater. I've used one of these 4-6 hours daily in the winter for 5 years, and it's still running strong. Just bought a second, and might get a third, because I I hoard...
love all vornado products. Have a vornado humidifier and can't believe the amount of water it can pump out. All about the fans in them.

I too can vouch for the awesome warranty service from Vornado. Haven't owned any of their heaters yet but have 2 fans which I've been happy with. after 2 or 3 years of almost 24-7 use ,the motor crapped out on one of them and I had no problems getting a brand new replacement from Vornado. Took picture of the cut cable next to the serial number and they got the new one out to me quickly.

Thanks OP. I have a very old model that's more than 10 years old. Other than the high setting not working anymore, it's alive and kicking and works well for a small room. I use it in the bathroom. As others have mentioned, it disperses heat well and will warm up a room much faster than the cheapo heaters, even ones with fans.

Thanks for that info, I was just about to ask if it was electronic switch or not. This was the one thing I don't like about my Vornado fan is that it wouldn't work with smart switches due to the electronic switch. So this might have swayed me to pull the trigger on the heater. And with some energy monitoring smart switches you can set a cut off so if it starts drawing more power than is normal (which could indicate motor is malfunctioning or stuck) it will turn it off at the wall and alert you.

How loud is this. I want to use it in an office cubicle, will my coworkers hear it cycle on and off?

I have another version of this fan (smaller, but the same physical switch/dial) - it's nearly silent.

I actually just bought 2 of these to replace a dyson heater that sounds like a jet every time it engages. (the other one is going in our baby's room once he get's the hell out of my room).

Here's the other one we have:

Vornado MVH Vortex Heater with 3 Heat Settings, Adjustable Thermostat, Tip-Over Protection, Auto Safety Shut-Off System. Very similar, and very quiet, but also has blades to circulate the heat.

pretty sure you have to plug these things directly into wall socket

Do these work well in cubicles/open areas? I sit in a cubicle right by the windows and it's chilly in my spot compared to the rest of the office.

Or would the heat dissipate too much from these to be effective?
Check with your facility people at work to make sure they are ok with it. Most cubicle setup have 3-4 cubicles on the same breaker. They stagger it to prevent one heavy user from overloading the circuit, so your cube might be on two breakers, but it does mean at the full 1500 watts you are using most of the available power on one circuit.

If you are close to the thermostat the extra heat might mess the temperature in that whole section.

Becareful with smart switch. Get the one that are rated for 15 amps. Some of the cheap one are rated closer to 10 amps.

Also, most companies restrict personal space heaters because they're a fire hazard. Too many people forget to turn them off when they leave the office, too.

Trust me, if I sat close to the thermostat, it would probably have the heating going all day. Thanks for pointing out the cube setup for outlets though, I think some cubes are like that but my cube has a wall outlet so I don't think it will be a problem.

I am wary of buying this from ebay due to the unclear return policy.

As others have mentioned, be careful using a smart plug with heaters because they draw alot of power. I'm not an expert but I would say, rule of thumb, please don't use smart plugs for devices that draw constant high amounts of power possibly causing injury or death. Stay safe!
