Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DONS good looking & functional as a fireplace but...
This is a good looking piece of furniture, easy to assemble & functional as a fireplace but as a media console it has a weakness because while it can hold your Cable Box and or DVD, there is no onboard storage for media as I've seen on other models. I mistakenly assumed this had storage when I bought it and did not realize my error until half way through assembly. It's a well made piece but if you want additional storage for DVD's and CD's find another model.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OnlyLD Attractive and warm
This electric fireplace is beautiful once assembled and a nice cozy alternative to having a real one installed. About 3 wood pieces had damage to the finish when unpacked, but email correspondence with the company as noted within the manual allowed us to have the pieces replaced with good ones within 2 weeks, no problem. Assembly took about 3 hrs for 1 person and we are very pleased with the final product. Many compliments from family and friends. Happy with our choice! Wish it was a little less expensive but paid for better quality compared to others considered.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Worked for 3 months
The fireplace worked fine at first. Then it started cutting out after working for a half hour or so. 2 Nights ago it stopped working all together and does not turn on any more. We used this for at the most 2 hours at a time maybe 3 days a week and sometimes less. It was only for supplemental heat so it's not like we were planning on it heating the whole house. I thought we could get a couple years out of it but now I have to return the fireplace under the factory warranty.................... the closest service center to us is over 120 miles away.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by cozy Pretty, but not functional
I bought this in-store and I asked if it came assembled and they told me it did, however, this was NOT the case. I had a very hard time assembling because the wood was warped, so wouldn't lie flat.
The heater also does not produce that much heat. I can sit right in front of it and not feel it at all.
It's pretty to look at and a nice piece for the T.V., but is not functional the way I was hoping it would be. I should have just got a space heater.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gern Poor workmanship on the "woodlike" parts
I'm a professional handyman that has assembled dozens of 'pin and cam' type furniture units. This ranks near the bottom. Very poor fit and finish, holes drilled in wrong spots, fasteners that will not hold, severely warped pieces. Typical import made to maximize profit. The logs look OK, "fire" fair, and the heat unit is what you'd expect for 5000W. I would have been livid if I'd paid anything even close to the internet price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by James Looks and works great!
I read the reviews prior to purchasing one so I was aware there may be a warping problem and there was. The top of the mantle is packed on the bottom of the box so I think that if there is moisture present during shipping, it draws up into the box and warps the top. We took it back and got another one with no problems. Everything was labeled clearly so it was very easy to put together.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Laura Looks good, works well.
Extremely pleased with this "fireplace" TV console. Heater works well and the "fire" is very nice. (The backlit "bricks" are just so-so.) Plenty of room on the open shelf for the cable box, DVD player, etc. And, ALL the parts were there, it was UNDAMAGED when it arrived, and it went together beautifully....every part lined up and was properly pre-drilled!!!
