Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ragtag Nice!
My first fireplace arrived with several large chips and 2 left feet!! However, Home Depot immediately arranged to pick up the damaged unit and another one arrived very quickly. This one also had a chip on the front mantel, but I was able to touch it up with black craft paint and the repair looks acceptable to me.
I found it very easy to put together on my own, and I had it assembled and operating in just under 2 hours. I do miss the crackle of a real fire, but I find the Spectafire customizable effects pleasing and I like the blower feature which warms the room nicely.

This is one solid piece of Furniture, it is not hard to put together and the instructions are easy to understand. I was amazed how great it looks and it adds a touch of elegance to any room. The Spectra Flame is realistic looking and the 6 flame settings add a nice touch of warmth to any room. I looked at more expensive Media Fireplaces , and this one in My opinion as far as the Fireplace is right there with them as far as the flame effect. I would Highly recommend this Media Fireplace to any of My Friends Great Buy the Cherry is Beautiful.

This is an extremely nice tv stand. The fireplace is as realistic as an electric fire could be. You can turn on just the fire without the heat. When the heat it on, the temp shows in the corner but does not stay on for long. The vent does heat up but no other part of the stand gets warm. Love the doors and I can fit my long DVD player and cable box stacked in the slot but they won't fit next to each other. Took a while to set up and some holes didn't match up but everything works and is in good condition. Highly recommend.

This is definetly the best value out there. Its a beautiful piece of furniture with more storage than expected. The flame is about as realistic as you get get with an electric and its heats up the room nicely. The spectra flame is a huge value. I compared fireplaces for several months and could not find a better piece anywhere. Without the fan on it is completely silent. I tested others and many of them made an annoying noise when the fan was off. even with the fan on the "noise" is very minimal. I did by this off the shelf so it was already assembled. (Got the last one and they are now on back order) It was heavy to move but that showed that it is a solid piece of furniture) Managed to put my cable box, dvd, and xbox in the middle slot and have my 47" inch tv and sound bar up top.

I had a contractor through Home Depot's Redbeacon assemble the fireplace. No problem. I love how sturdy the product is. It is very stylish and beautiful during the day and creates a wonderful ambience in my living room at night. The color, speed and bright/dim settings for the fire are an outstanding feature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Meme167 Took a long time to put together
The unit is absolutely beautiful once put together. It is definitely a great value for the price. However, the instructions say that assembly will take 60 minutes... This is vastly understated. Try more like 4 hours without an electric screwdriver. There were also two holes that weren't drilled properly so two screws didn't fit properly. But overall, I love the unit. It is sturdy and looks fabulous sitting beneath my 60 inch flat screen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SommerNyte Great piece for a great price!
We shopped around quite a bit before deciding on what we were going to get as far as an electric fireplace went. We chose this model and could NOT be happier with it.
It was several hundred dollars less than similar models seen elsewhere. The design is sleek and clean and it was easy to assemble (though there are a LOT of pieces, so it takes a while!).
The fireplace has 6 flame height settings, a thermostat and timer. You can use the fire without heat or the heat without fire was well. It is relatively warm (though we really were mostly interested in the ambiance).
Ample storage space for media in the side shelves (which are adjustable) and we've got a Nintendo Wii, DVD and Roku player on the shelf about the fire. It's topped off with a 48" plasma (which now looks SMALL on this unit!) and a sound bar. It looks great!
