Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Addition to Our Home! This fireplace is a beautiful piece of furniture for our home. It is certainly the best in its price range, and a very good value for the money. The flame is realistic and has good depth. The controls are readily accessible and easy to use. The heater really does put out a LOT of heat, so it's good that there is a temperature control. It did take a couple of tedious hours to assemble, but the finished product is worth the time spent. December 25, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Buy I ended up purchasing this electric Fireplace because the one that I originally picked out was sold out. I am so glad that it was because this one is much nicer and it was $10 less! It works great, and it looks great. It looks bigger than it is because the mantle is tall. It fits perfectly in my mother-in-law's small living room. She loves it. I am very happy with the value of this fireplace. November 20, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase! I was originally looking for a TV stand for my flatscreen but the prices were so high I just decided to try a fireplace. I havevan exposed brick wall in my small apartment and decided it would look best there. This fireplace works perfect for the space and sits just high enough that my 42inch flatscreen looks great! The heat I decent, again for the price is perfect! I would caution someone looking for a fireplace for a house, it may be too small. Otherwise can't beat it April 23, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Electric fireplace in cherry We ordered this a few months ago. We wanted something to put in our basement to take the chill out the of air. We love it! Heats the whole basement nicely, looks nice, and isn't loud. I don't think my husband had any trouble putting it together either. March 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for the price! I absolutely love the way this fireplace fits in my living room. It is not big and bulky like others I have come across. It works great! The fire simulation is very relaxing to watch and completes the cozy feel in my livingroom wonderfully. Color was a tad bit darker than pictured but it still went well with my decor so I was ok with it. October 23, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is very nice for the price Really like the fireplace. Perfect for my office. Took some time to put it together, but very pleased with the result January 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very nice item. Worth it for the money. Highly recommended. Purchased thru them before. November 20, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Small, but looks good and works well Was packaged well, arrived in perfect condition. Put it together in under an hour, only had a tiny issue when installing the fireplace unit into the frame (because I didn't read the instructions). I painted mine off white to match kitchen cabinets (installed in breakfast nook), paint didn't like the veneer finish too much even after scuffing and using a for plastic paint. Haven't really used the heater function since its summer, but the fake fire looks nice, 2 year was very impressed. Can't do better for the price, but do check dimensions, this is a very small unit (bigger than most in the price range, but still quite small). May 7, 2013
