Looking for portable heater for bedroom

I'm looking to heat things up in the bedroom. ;)

...so I want to buy a portable heater -- one that is quiet and I can move between rooms. I would like it to have a digital thermostat, remote control, and sleep timer.

My price limit is $200. I've looked at CanadianTire, HomeHardware, HomeDepot, Walmart, and Costco, but the choices are somewhat overwhelming and some seem very similar, but with different brand names.

I would appreciate it if you would recommend a model that is reliable and has my desired features. Identifying a model I should avoid would also be very helpful.

Thanks.

Ceramic heaters can be very loud. I walked by this infrared heater at Costco, a few days ago and it was very warm and not very loud:

It was $124.99, in store (I guess the extra $25, online, is to cover shipping & handling).

This one I walked by (also in Costco) last year and it was downright HOT:
http://www.costco.ca/Duraflame-Oscillat ... 39436.html
It too is currently cheaper in store...around $43-46. But reviews say the SLIGHTEST dust build-up makes it shut down, so there's maintenance. I don't recall its sound, which means there was none (or very low).

I have had good luck with this type of oil filled heater, its silent and thermostat settable, i don't have this model (just using the link to show you what they look like) but you can look up reviews and features from different manufacturers.

If your looking for the other kind of heat that is beyond the scope of this forum :cheesygri
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people

I have one like this and it's mostly silent, but not sure how it would work in a full room since it doesn't actively push air.
