Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DesertLady01 Great on Style & Price, Not So Great on Heating??
I just received this unit along with the Cherry finish model. They are both great on style, but they do not appear to be able to heat a 400 sq ft room as stated in the description. I have an old ranch-style home with a few areas in need of better heating during the winter months. Unless there is a noticeable change when the temperature drops, I will be returning both units. I hope I don't have to do this because the style and price are great but policies may force me to return them before I get to experience the units during the upcoming desert winter – when the temperature drops in the desert, it really drops.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shirl this was a great purchase for our finished basement!
We bought this for our finished basement mostly for the heating aspect. It works great in our 14 x 23ft room and is simple enough for our 10year old to operate safely. There are just 2 switches to use and all of the heating elements are covered so there is no worry. The "fireplace" is definitely a bonus and it really looks nice! It saves energy as we do not need to open up the vents for the oil heat. We live in very cold Massachusetts so its a great value for the chilly winter! One of the best things was that it came out of the box completely assembled and just needed to be plugged in.....love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dainsy LOVE IT!
I just love my fireplace! It looks very real. The flames and colors are very realistic. I would love to have an upgraded model with remote and crackle sounds, but the price and small size were the most important considerations for me so I got the least expensive, smallest model, and I am not disappointed. It is a perfect little size for my room. My husband was very skeptical; he thought it would be tacky. But now he says, "Whenever I come in the room, I think it's so cozy. I hate to admit that I really like it!" Definitely worth the price to treat yourself!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dorothy 23 in. Oak Vent-Free Electric Compact Fireplace
I bought this right before Christmas and I am really enjoying it! It was on my front porch when I got home from work. It was damaged even though it was packed very well. After I got all of it put back together, I emailed the store. In less than an hour I got a phone call from the store. They offered to exchange my heater. The next day I went to the store and everyone was very courteous and helpful. In just a few minutes I left with a new heater. Excellent customer Service! I really love it and would like to purchase two more.
Thanks for everything!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ctbuyer Great Item
Recently purchased this item , I was pleasantly surprised not only for the warmth it provides but its beauty as well and liked the ase of just plugging it in. The only complaint I have is whoever built the item set the control button in counter clockwise instead of clockwise which the knobs clearly indicate. I am sure the return would be just as eay but for me being a senior and not near the store, it is more of a problem to return then to live with the problem. I am giving it 5 stars, the flame is very realiistic. and the problem is really a minor one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DDF62 Very nice looking.
Just received this today via fedex and even though the unit was very well packaged, the plastic ember piece inside was cracked and visible when it was turned on. I called to report it and am awaiting a return call. I'm hoping I don't have to return the entire fireplace and they will just replace the part. I appreciated the convenience of ordering online and having it quickly delivered (took 5 days from when I ordered it!) I think it is a very nice looking fireplace and am hoping to be able to use it soon!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Christy317 Good for the Price
I ordered this fireplace to put in the "square" of an older style entertainment center. Could not use for my TV anymore, but hated to get rid of the piece of furniture I still enjoyed. If you are using this fireplace on the floor, be aware it is small in height. It came packed well, although it did have a couple nicks and imperfections. These were very minor things and really not quite noticeable. You can't beat the price at under 100.00. After shopping around I kept coming back to this one and I'm glad I did.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Calgal2 A great product!
This is a beautiful little fireplace. It fits perfectly into my small den. It is real wood, not plastic. It gives a very cozy feel to my room. The evenings have been cold and we have had some rain, so I've had the fireplace on every day. I haven't used the heater much because in California, cold is a relative term. The few times I have used the heater, it has warmed the room very quickly and I have had to turn it off. The fan is quiet and very efficient. I highly recommend this product.
