Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alpacagirl1 Great fireplace
We did a lot of research before buying and very happy with the result. Not that hard to put together and looks much more expensive than the price. We were so happy with the amount of space it heats, we bought another for the bedroom. The bedroom unit is a different kind and a bit quieter but still very happy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Better than more expensive model
previously bought $229 "oak" fireplace because the picture on web looked like a light oak/maple color which is what i wanted but it was DARK wood...and flame effect was almost comical compared to this one. although the flame effect on this one is still "fake" looking it still looks 10x better than the one i paid $50 more for. i returned the other one. cabinet is pressboard/particle board with wood grain vinyl "contact paper"...heater is decent but really only for a small room...my living room is 13x15 and is barely adequate...could be the placement though, its in the corner. if room is completely silent you can hear the motor running the "flames"...voom....voom.....voom...not terrible loud though...a tv or radio at any level drowns it out...only thing missing is fireplace sounds...i was thinking of putting on a loop on cheap mp3 player...you can download wav files from internet...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Genie Elegance at an inexpensive price
The assembly can be sometimes confusing but not impossible. Once the fireplace is assembled, it is a great accent piece in a living from or bedroom. It is unfortunate that this product is discontinued.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reptile Baby, it's cold outside (but not inside)
Great for the price! Follow instructions and don't use power tools to assemble; laminate surface is too fragile for power tools but looks good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by azbuyer Fair price for the product.
Gives off good heat. Reminds me of my portable heater. Wood quality is nice for the price. I actually received it about 3 hrs ago, removed it from the box to set it up and decided to take it back due to the flames are soooo fake looking and you can not turn them off. you can lower the brightness of it but does not have a off switch. you can turn the power off or the heat off but you HAVE to have a glow from the box. i have post pics and hopefully the video shows. The flames actually look better on the pics than in person. I bought another fireplace here- a different model, but a cheap $149.00 one and received it today, i hope its better. i will post a review of it also once its opened. This is a nice little heater and would look nice in a small sitting room or bedroom. You get what you pay for. I might have to splurge on a more expensive one for a better flame and heat for my size family room. oh and blower is not loud at all. sounds like a regular portable heater that osculate.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jess Looks nice but disappointed with its performance
I bought this fireplace for a small 3 season room. Unfortunately it does not put out nearly as much heat as I hoped and did not extend the amount of time the room could be used. It looks nice, but I was disappointed at its performance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tammy Fantastic for the price!
Very easy to assemble and is a fantastic product for the price. Don't use a power tool to assemble this product. Everyone writing a review stating that it easily strips out have probably never assembled something like this before. You cannot crank down a screw in particle board or it will strip out. The first page of assembly is confusing if you don't lay out the boards and closely follow the directions. Once you get past the first section you'll have the hang of it! I purchased this for my mother who lives in Brooksville, FL where it gets cold but it hasn't been cold enough for the past few days to run the heater. We did test it and it really puts out some great heat! My mother loves the logs and flames and they look wonderful. Since you have an option to run the flames and heat separately, mom ran the flames all evening! Now it just needs to get cold again! I forgot to mention that this is a very quiet product. You won't be disappointed! Enjoy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Utah Good for the money
This is a small little fireplace. It was inexpensive, easy to put together and it does the job. My new house did not have a fireplace. I really love the look of these electric fireplaces. It is a great little fireplace. All the pieces were there and it was pretty easy to put together. You can adjust the brightness of the flames. I think it is a fine little unit. The only thing I am not super thrilled about is that the heater blows directly out. so about thigh height, I would have liked it to blow towards the ground (right at my toes to keep them warm) This is not a huge complaint though. It is like a space heater with a fireplace look. :)
