The Final Verdict

Probably the main reason for choosing either the Lasko 6405 or the Lasko 6435 (aside from heating a room) is because of the unique, rustic design. In both colors we felt that the heaters added character to a room, unlike others. We felt the size was good for both, although the Lasko 6405 was better for smaller spaces and still kicked out a powerful amount of heat.

The settings were exactly the same and there were enough of them to suit various sized rooms. The oscillation feature did a good job at circulating the heat around rooms, even in larger rooms we could notice the difference when we turned them on.

It was slightly disappointing to read of people having issues with overheating cables and plugs. It is also a shame that there is not an automatic turn off feature in case it falls over. Having said that, the stand makes this unlikely.

Today’s winner is Lasko 6435. Because they are so similar in both design, features, and power, it really came down to the value for money. Again, as there was little difference in the price and they both came with a 3-year warranty, our decision boiled down to the remote control. As the Lasko 6435 came with a remote control, which was quite handy, we felt it was better value for money.
