Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MrP123 Poor Quality Detracts from Nice Look
I purchased 2 of these and they both went back. The first one, none of the holes for the pegs lined up and the one of the mounting blocks broke off when I tightened the screws, as directed by the instructions. The second one, while MOST of the holes lined up, some did not. I had to leave out a few pegs and 2 securing screws to get the unit together, Also one of the mounting screws pushed it's way through the front of the unit during tightening. Either the screw was too long, the hole was too short or there was something in the screw hole. In any case, the quality control on these is abysmal. Spend your money elsewhere.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Edwards Biting the bullet on this one
We've been looking for a medium sized fireplace for a while and when my wife saw this on display in the store, she fell in love with it. Like others have said, several dowels didn't line up so had to remove 4 to get the pieces to fit, also had to leave out a bolt because the pieces weren't square. All said and done, the fireplace looks great. Biggest disappointment came an hour after it had been running on high...the room didn't heat up even 1 degree. Slept on it and have decided to return this fireplace. Will call to see if they require it back in the box. I expect they will...glad I didn't break them down for the trash!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Steel Installation was a Nightmare
I bought this product a week ago. Like others have said the pegs and holes do not line up. Two side blocks simply came undone while I was attaching the sides. Luckily I am quite handy, and I used some of my own hardware in order to secure the unit together. I am refinishing my entire basement from floor to ceiling. Putting together this fireplace was the hardest thing Ive done so far. The unit has 1 big plus. Its big. If you are looking for a big fireplace, this one is for you. Other than that I think its a little to cheaply built for the money. I dont find that the flames and logs look very realistic. If this item wasnt so large I would be taking it back to the store.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kristin For the price, I think its great!
I really wanted a fireplace that wasn't too small and actually looks like a fireplace and this one does just that! Having a home with no real fireplace, this unit is perfect. It was fairly easy to put together and we had no issues with the installation. I love the curved glass base in front of the flame. It sets it part from the others where the heat sources are flush with the wood. I guess the flame could look a little more realistic, but for the money its great! Others that I looked at were much more expensive and didn't seem that much better. It did come with some minor blemishes but nothing that made it return worthy, just basic blemishes from shipping I'm assuming, All in all, I love it and it has transformed my living room!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Duckmom Disappointed
We've been looking at fireplaces for 2 years. Both my husband and I really loved this one with it's curved look. It was difficult to assemble,the pegs didn't really lined up well so that when the top was placed, a big chip came off the front! A marking pen came with it, I guess they know things are gonna chip. The other thing is that it says it can heat a 400 sf area. Heat does blow out but you have to be standing right in front to feel it. Can't even feel it a foot away. For the price it should of been better! If it wasn't so hard to take back we would!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sudoku Great look, good quality, and slight difficult install.
The fireplace produces a good amount of heat and looks of a built in fireplace. Our living room changed overnight and we receive complements on it all the time. The only problem was during installation. Some of the wooden pegs did not line up; however there were around 10 on the top alone. A few were left out and it lined up perfectly. The parts are secured well with bolts so the wood pegs are really just for lining the parts up. All-in-all the product is great and we are very satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bobgee50 great unit
easy to assemble,if you dont't tighten the screws all the way until it is completely assembled. Pegs lined up easily
The only drawback is the curved glass reflects everything in the room, kind of like a tv
