Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. January 2, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 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 can download wav files from internet...

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. December 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to operate, throws good heat. Great for ambience. Quiet, easy to operate, throws good heat. I was amazed at how real the case looks. The "fire" is of course artificial but it still creates a nice ambience. I generally regard instructions as just "someone else's opinion", but in this case it's best to read the instructions after laying the parts out on the floor. I was then able to assemble it and start it up in about an hour. Pay particular attention to how the clever locking fasteners work that hold the parts of the case together. Everything was well aligned but you'll need a firm grip and a good screwdriver for those fasteners. January 10, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Realistic flames, assembly a nightmare Once assembled and in place, great look, realistic flames, quiet and heater nice. HOWEVER, the assembly process was a nightmare. A gazillion pieces and screws and nuts and if you use a manual screw driver, takes forever to complete install. I've assembled much more complicated furniture before, but this was just flimsy and screws were easily stripped or would not screw into wood at all. Took me at least SIX hours to assemble, not the one hour the assembly book said. October 23, 2013
