Your 'click here' seems to work just fine without the extra bit on the end.

I'd get one like the B & Q 2000W Convector or Delongi Convector:
1. No noise
2. Thermostat
3. Variable setting
4. Efficient effective fast heating.
5. No fan blowing dust all over.

Delongi = De Longhi

any idea about running costs? iif i wnat it on for hours at a time?

I suggest you get one that has a variable setting for 1kW or 2kW cost obviously depends on how much you pay per kWh for your electric. I guess 1kw about 12p per hour of use. That's why you need a thermostat on it so that it cuts out when room temp is reached.

In my bathroom I use an oil filled electric radiator 1 or 2 kw with thermostat from The Range at just over £30 click here does not look like they do that one anymore
