Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JJTexas It's nice, but there are some issues
I ordered this thinking the other reviews could be wrong, and that they may have mistakenly ordered the 'Gun metal' colored version, instead of this 'Nickel' version since they complained of the color being darker than advertised.
But sure enough, these doors are a dark gray color. Not a deal breaker for us, but be aware.
There were other issues as well. doors also arrived with some scratches in the paint. Again, not a big deal unless you get up close, but irritating none the less.
Also, one of the doors is bowed just a tad, so it won't close all the way. If you push in the top of the door, the bottom pops out, or vice versa. Not a big gap, and not worth the trouble to return to us.
Other than those issues, it is a nice looking unit. The install was easy enough, and only took a few minutes. The brackets fit easily in our fireplace and seem to lock it in place solidly. None of the issues I mentioned are just glaringly obvious, and in the end we decided to keep the unit and install in spite of them. I think we will enjoy the doors, and have received compliments on them already. If it wasn't for the slight quality control issues and the darker than expected color, I would have given it a full 5 stars. I have uploaded a picture, but for some reason it has a gold hue to it. It is gray colored in real life.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lushqua Good quality but the color is not what is advertised
Overall these are very nice quality doors, I bought the large doors based on the dimensions of our fireplace opening and they are a little too big to use the mounting hardware provided. My biggest
complaint is the color...it is nowhere near being nickel, it is more like a gunmetal
gray paint. Thankfully our color scheme still
worked with this color.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Justin These are definately not Nickel finish.
Cons: I agree with many others that these are not a nickel finish. They could have come with more insulation as noted above as well. I was also disappointed that I ordered on the 6th of January, It didn't ship out until the 10th, I didn't receive until the 16th. I bring this up because other reviews I read stated that theirs shipped fast and they had i within a week. I don't understand why it took 5 days from he time I ordered and paid, before it left the store. Now the good stuff...
Pros: The overall construction I would say is good quality. It was packaged well, and really easy to install. I think it will last a long time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by karl best value on the market
My goal was to try to hide a dirty fireplace in an investment property. I first went to a local fireplace store and my jaw hit the floor when they told me the cheapest one was $1100-1200. I immediately started searching the internet and found HD, like usual, had the most competitive price on the internet. You wouldn't put this fireplace door on a million dollar home but for 99% of homes, this is the best value you can find. Easy to install, quality of material is adequate, and it looks great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Emmy Great Product!
I agree with others that it is more a dull silver finish and not reflective at all which is actually what we were going for so it works for us. If you are going for a shiny silver then I would look for something else. It looks great with our newly painted fireplace though. My husband installed pretty easily, we just wish it came with a little more insulation. Overall a great product that we would recommend!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TeeCee love the fireplace
I love the way our fireplace looks now that we installed the new doors and frame. My only "dislike" was the installation. I had to figure out an alternative method to install it other than what was stated in the instructions as the original construction did not match with the way it was described in the instructions. But, once I figured it out it looked awesome!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by George M Easy to Install
Nice looking doors, easy to install, and well packaged for safe delivery. Made in USA. The only drawback is the advertised nickel color; it is more like a gunmetal color.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Piason Nice design and construction!
I just finished installation of the Colby Medium doors to my masonry fireplace. These were purchased to replace and old set of doors and they fit and look great! Installation was easy and required no drilling into lintel or masonry, all hardware is included and adopted easy to the opening. I am a general contractor and will use this product again!!
