Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KevinNKy Good Price
For the price, these logs or OK, Me and my wife looked for a long time for logs we liked. We seen these and was worried about buying them without seeing them in person. But we took the chance. I was a little dissapointed in the looks. In the stock pictures it doesnt show that the controls are in the front of the logs and and the first thing you see when you look at the logs are the 2 knobs and a light switch in the front of the logs. The logs alot taller then most logs in order to fit the controls in the front. See my attached picture for actual logs. Also we purchased them in Sept 2012 and the date on the tag of the burner was 2008. But they work good and are good for backup heat. But again they were 1/2 the price of any other log set we had looked at.

I was sceptical buying without seeing them in person but I am glad I did. I don't think there has been a single day they have not been on. I leave my heat on 58 and turn them on as soon as I get home. It warms the entire house in no time and keeps it steady. My house is over 2000 sqft 2 story and it heats the entire house on low. With it on low it will be up to 68 in a short time and keeps it there even on these below 0 days. My electric bill was only 50$ last month from the furnace barely running even though its the costed year in the last 20. My gas bill is the same or just a bit less than usually because these logs are so efficient. With the cost of gas going up its a great investment that will pay for itself in no time flat. The remote is nice to turn it on and off I didn't think it would make a difference but I do really like it even though it doesn't adjust the temp. I will be buying one or two more sets for my cabin.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jetpilot718 Installed today, so far so good!
Everything worked right away. I'll give a brief runthrough:
When you are done hooking it up and lighting it for the first time, depending on the lenght of pipe you ran, you'll have to hold the pilot knob down for a while until the O2 is bled from the lines.
You have one knob which controls the intensity of the flame, low to high.
Basically, this thing is a barbeque. You turn on the gas, ignite the flame by holding down the pilot button (allows gas to enter chamber), and clicking the ignitor to light the pilot light.
Once the pilot light is lit you can:
1-turn on the fire with a On-Off-Remote switch
2-turn on the fire with the remote, with switch position to "Remote". (Fire intensity still pre-determined by other knob which is manually operated, remote is just off/on)
Hope this helps!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie Very dissapointed with the battery life for the remote.
We wanted to have a remote insert. Was surprised of the short battery life. Since Nov had to replace them twice.. Paid for a remote that now I have decided to start manually.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Logz Not what we were looking for
Ordered these online, they look nothing like the photograph used. The controls are huge and ugly in the front of the unit. We were looking to switch from LP to Natural Gas and wanted to replace the log set. Our old logs use a switch on the wall, so we really didn't want a remote, we aren't that lazy. Removing them from the box instantly filled the room with a weird "paint thinner" odor, that lasted well after we repackaged them and put them into the garage. We intend to return them in the morning to the local store.
This was our first let down from HD, and we are long time shoppers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Qtip Worth the money
We bought these logs to replace the wood burning fireplace. We needed the 18 in to fit our fire box and these were the best I found in our price range. My husband installed them but he is an Engineer and pretty good handyman. I didn't give them a 5 star because the instructions on putting in the batteries for the remote were unclear and the front legs do not touch the floor and the whole set rest on the battery box. We called CS and were told that is how they came from the manufacturer and to place a couple of washers under the legs. No problem with odor. We opened the damper and burned them on high for about 4 hours. Remote works fine but we don't use it because the beeping upset our dogs LOL. All In All we are pleased with our purchase.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Travis Unit was not assembled correctly.
I was disappointed in the installation. Once the installer had the unit in and polit light lite the burner would not light. Calling the help line was no help, after a long wait they disconnected him. On the 2nd call their expert said our gas pressure was too low; however, our local gas company found this was not the case. Another installer came out and took the whole unit apart and found a wire in the remote was not connected. He fixed this and the unit worked fine. But I had an additional $100 in labor.
