model 5538 is 755320 per my understanding.

That is an EXCELLENT question. I went online a couple of months ago, looking for the best heater - and the 755320 kept popping up with hundreds of 5-star recommendations. Everywhere I looked, I couldn't find one. I called Lasko from Walmart, while standing in front of the heaters - and asked them about this model. From what the CSR told me, this is this years model and is exactly the same, with a couple of very minor alterations, as the 755320. I immediately put it in my cart and went to pay for it!! I believe the changes are the remote is shaped differently, and this newer model has the energy-efficient setting...which I love.

I haven't seen/owned the 755320 before but from what i can see they have all the same features. I'd say that the 5538 is the newer replacement for the 755320.

I am pretty sure it does. I know that unit was highly praised in reviews. I think they looked at the reviews and made a few changes. It now says hi low and that seems to relate to the 900 watt 1500 watt references on that previous one. People complained about not being able to see the digital display on the previous one as it was flat on top???. This one has a slanted top so you can see it very well even laying on the couch...not that I would know anything about that. It still beeps...that seems to have bothered people in the past...???

No it does not replace the 755320. The two heaters are virtually identical. Except the 755320 digital control panel buttons. They're laid out slightly different and are light silver with black letters. The remote on the 755320 is also light silver with black letters. The buttons on the 5538 are black with silver letters and the remote is also black and is retangle in shaped. The 755320 remote is more oval shaped. The only real difference is the 5538 has Save-Smart Technology buttons on the control panel and the remote. The 755320 does not have this feature. This feature allows you to quickly heat up your room and runs the fan on high. Once your desired temperature is reached the heater automatically switches to energy saving low speed for the fan. And the heater cycles on and off at low speed to maintain your desired temperature. The 755320 cycles on and off at what ever speed you have the fan on, whether it's high or low, to maintain temperature. The Save-Smart Technology is a real nice feature. Other than that the specs. are all the same (eg. height, width, watts and warranty). I'd buy the 5538. I don't work for Lasko, although they are based in Pennsylvania, my home. I just did a lot of research before I made my purchase. The 5538 and 755320 both get excellant reviews in consumer magazines and on internet consumer sites. Actually rating number one for ceramic tower heaters on all sites I checked.

Hi, I think the model you are asking about came out last year. It is a replacement. The new one displays different buttons and a different remote- in my opinion it has improvements. Please read my review if you were considering buying or were needing to do an exchange.
