Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gGel Would recommend
Delivery was quick and assembly was simple for me (I'm a very handy guy). My only complaints: My home stereo/receiver did not fit in the shelf when I tried to set it up.. I had to remove the back panel and insert it through there. It was a pain, but once set up, it's perfect. Unfortunately, if I ever want to plug anything else to the receiver, I will have to remove the back panel again which is really tedious. The stand is solid and it seems like it was made of solid wood. It does not feel/look cheap. Another small complain: the remote control for the fireplace does not seem to work properly. I'm unable to turn it on, but once it's on, all works as expected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nancy Pleased with purchase
Was concerned about making a purchase online for a major piece of furniture that I had only seen in a picture and would have to pick up and put together myself. Very pleased in all areas. Was easy to pick up (home depot employees were very helpful) and fit in my car since it was in two pieces. Very easy to put together and looks beautiful. I use it in my basement so I feel the quality over exceeds what I was expecting and the fireplace warms the entire basement.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RickM Looks good - shoddy construction
There were several places where fit and finish were not even close. Specifically where the corners of the top piece meet. If I had more time I would have cut the staple holding the corners and refastened them correctly. From a distance you can't notice the fit problems that much but for almost $1,000 I would expect them to at least be close. Overall looks good and the fireplace insert has performed as expected.

Better than expected! Very upscale looking. Very easy to put together and the details are gorgeous. Fits under 60" T.V perfectly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dustin Great for holding all my electronics.
My wife wanted a fireplace for christmas. I was looking at lots and found this one. I wanted to put it under my 65" tv thats mounted on the wall. This one was one of the few that looked like it would actually hold all my electronics. It was a tight fit, but they made it.
You got just over 17" of width for the electronics. This should pretty much be wide enough for any modern equip. It holds my bluray player, yamaha avantage reciever, dvd/vhs player, xbox/ps2, and my dish hopper reciever. I also installed my power conditoner wich is where everything plugs into. I put it on the bottom and cut the bottom of the back pannel off so everyhing could plug in.
The front on the unit has a overhang on each side of about an inch. This means if your equip is over 16" then you have to slide all the equip in from the back, hook everthing up. running all the wires threw the one hole they provide on each side in the back panel, and then scew the back panel on.(meaning if you need to add anything new you have to unscew the back panel, and make sure everything is hooked up right!) It was not to bad for me, but may be for other. I suppose you could just leave the back pannels off, but then the shelves want to slide out the back if you push on them even slightly.(Speaking of the shelves, the pins that hold them in fall out very easy. A little glue will hold in place though.) Once all done though all the wires come out of one spot in the rear, and the equip is going nowhere.
The fireplace is great, lots of features and looks pretty darn real. The heater is ok, the heat blows out the top and kinda up. My breaker keeps blowing when the heater is run at the higher temp settings. It draws about 11 amps at full blast. Most houses have 15 amp breakers. So throw in a tv, sat and surround reciever and you will be tripping the breaker from time to time. Im going to run a line from the panel just for this thing.
Shipping was within an week, came fed ex, and was very reasonable price. The fireplace comes in a seperate box. The wood box was a little beat up, but the whole thing is pacakaged very good. The whole thing is like 9 pieces and is very easy to put together. Alls you need is a phillips head scew driver and the provided allen key. Took me just under a hour by myslef. Anyone can put this together.
Overall this thing made are whole living room look much more modern and gave us a nice cozy fire under the tv. Love it! The black looks great with all my equip and tv.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Alan Pungent, pervasive, chemical ordor
Came out of the box with about a 4 inch split in the top, front molding and a couple of other small dings. While annoying these could have been covered up with a little wood stain. Assembly quite easy. Brackets that hold shelving too small for the job. Shelves a bit too short. The combination made for rather loose fit. And then there was the pungent chemical smell. Had to abandon the living room. Hoped for overnight relief didn't happen. Had to open the house and blow it out with ceiling fans (in January). Finally gave up, dissembled & took to garage. Next day back to Home Depot for refund which we got ending a bad exprience with a good one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KerryPugs Love love love...
I always rely on the reviews of others when purchasing from online. I was scared, because this didn't have one yet and it was pricier to take a risk. Long story short, I am so happy I did. This is a very beautiful piece and is true to the description provided (dimensions, etc...) I was so negative that I was expecting to hate it, thinking it would probably look cheep and flimsy.
I am not sure how it was to put together, because someone did it for me, but I know it was quick ... about one to two hours. Anyway, I love it have had very nice compliments on it as well. I would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Renesmee Excellent quality and value, easy to assemble
The quality of this entertainment center is excellent, better than expected. The wood is beautiful - the unit is more expensive looking in person. The fireplace insert is great, the flames look real and it can be used for ambiance or to heat the room. The assembly instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I put it together myself and had no trouble. The hardest part was moving it while in the carton as it is very heavy. Instructions for the insert are easy to follow and the remote is great. I would definitely buy a product from this manufacturer again. Shopping through HD is always a good idea.
