optimus infrared heater h5210 quartz radiant.5
very warm even at 400w , low at 400watts, hi at 800 watts, easy to find and easy to use controls at top right side, warms up very very quickly about 1 and a half minutes, about 1 and a half pounds, about 14 inches wide, by 13 inches tall, by 4 inches thick , no fan , SUPER QUIET, as advertised, hope it lasts, will buy another one soon, does not suck up oxygen, gives no odor, excellent, no humming noise nor crackling noise, i suggest you keep objects 2 feet from front and maybe 3 inches from objects [on the back and sides], had it a couple days.

UPdAtE: had it over a year, the heater is excellent.
[bought a 2nd one, which also still works after a year !!]
just bought my fourth one in february 2009..excellent..lasts.!

cheap, quiet5
This is a good deal. Mine has worked fine for the 8 months or so I have had it. I like quartz heaters for when I am working in one place, like at the computer. They don't heat the room air very well--they only heat what they are pointed at. This one has 2 heat settings, and the low setting is 400 watts, which is lower than other brands. I keep it 3 feet away and it keeps me warm for 4-5 cents an hour. There is no fan--something almost all the others have. I like this. The unit works silently.

Two things to consider: The safety switch on the bottom is a push button that turns off the heater if it falls over. It only needs to be extended very slightly, however, to break the circuit. This means that if it is on an uneven surface the heater may not come on. I wrapped a little tape on mine to make the plunger a bit longer so it would sit on an uneven stool. Make sure if you do this you do not defeat the switch. It is there for a reason.

Also, the control wheel on the side cannot be read from in front of the heater (Design team!). I used a magic marker on the edge of the wheel: dash, double dash, and zero--for low, high and off.

OK, I am a bit anal....
For a small room5
This heater sits in my computer room and quietly heats me and the room. No fan, just radiant heat. This heater is not for a large room. 8X10 is probably the most to expect. I have another heater that I used, but the noise from the fan got to me, hence I bought the Optimus. Another advantage is the long electrical cord. The outside temperature is 40° and my room is a very comfortable 70° and I will now set the heater to low setting.
