Little breakdown with some reviews to give you some idea.
The Best Space Heaters | The Sweethome
Never owned one before, any recommendations? Also, any idea what kind of kWh's a typical one might suck down? Only looking to heat a decent sized room for a couple hours, nothing long term.
I've used both kinds extensively (the small and large in Grimmlokk's link, although not those specific brands/models) and I definitely prefer the small, portable ones. It's nice to be able to pick it up and move it around as you move from room to room, or if you're in a large room, move it from next to the couch where you're sitting to the computer desk on the opposite wall. I'd never use one of the big radiator-looking ones again unless I knew I only wanted to heat that single room. The small ones obviously won't generate as much heat as the big ones, but I think that is counter-balanced by the fact that you can just plop it down right next to where you're sitting.
The only caveat to owning a cool small one like this in the review
Amazon.com - Lasko 754200 Ceramic Heater with Adjustable Thermostat - Space Heaters
is to watch out if you have small children or animals, i have one just like it and it's awesome, BUT be careful around it with children/pets or even your clumsy self, you can easily knock it over and depending on where the heat is pointed to cause some issues, accidents.
^ Correct. Whether you spend $600 or $30, if it plugs into a wall outlet, it's going to be 1500 watts max and put out around 5200 BTU. You will spend more for features and aesthetics.
I have one in my master that is about 4" thick, hangs on the wall and sorta looks like a log fire. It uses no floor space and adds a nice ambience to the room. $150. I have a large cabinet in my den that has an electric fireplace in it. It holds a large flat screen and all the home theater crap. $600. They both are 1300 watt heaters.

Thanks for the suggestions, probably get that cheap Lasko one. Don't have to worry about tipping over from pets/children because there won't be any of them in the room.
When I read the title I read it as SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE HEEEEEEEEEEEATER!

Your justification in life is merely self serving. Imagine if society was 100% people like you, fuck living in that place.
