Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Scott787 Hampton Bay Electric Log Insert with Heater
If you are looking at using this more for the ambient feeling of a real fire.... don't!
The fire lighting is terrible after a couple of months. The fire flame effect on the back has all but gone (even in the dark) and the ember look has faded really badly and doesn't resemble glowing embers at all anymore.
On the up side it does provide some heat and takes the chill out of the air, but that is about it.
Pretty disappointed by it.
Is there any way of replacing the light source?

this was the best $149 I ever spent. Warms the room better than I ever thought it could. Took it out of the box and plugged it in. Ordered it Jan 1 got it on Jan 3 make the room look very cozy. I always have it on.

We received our fireplace insert just in time for Christmas and it is spectacular! You need only open the box, position the insert where you want it to be, plug it in, and then turn it on. It even has a remote control for both the amount of firey light and the level of heat you desire. It adds the perfect luminescent glow and has four levels of heat for any occasion! It has already decreased our amount of heating fuel we are using. Even our chimney mouse loves it! We can't wait for summer, so we can have the look of a roaring fire without the heat, because the two elements, heat and firey appearance are separate of each other! LOOK FOR YOURSELF!!!! WE LOVE OUR NEW FIREPLACE INSERT!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gena great product!!!
We have used it every day since we have gotten it even when it has been in the high 70s. We only use the flame, no heat on those days. We took the back off and it fit great into our fireplace. I just wish I would have known it came without the back also. That product was not available when I looked for it before my purchase, but I received an e-mail with suggested products that "I might like".

I just love this electric insert. It looks very real and I can have a "roaring" fire with just the flick of a remote, without the clean-up of ashes!! The heater does not exactly put out a lot of heat but it will take the chill off the room. And, it's a lot less expensive than having a gas insert installed.

I purchased this unit to sit inside my existing fireplace mantle. The back is higher than expected and needed some fine tuning to get inside. This has a nice finished look to it. The heat is slightly less than advertised in my opinion. Although it kicks off and on like a heater should, the fan blower does not put out much heat. The most disappointing is the lighting. You just can't see it. Lit by a string of very small yellow LED lights, it is just washed out. No ambiance at all and no way to replace or upgrade the lighting to make brighter. If you just need a heater for your fireplace for a smaller room, this will do.
