Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ashley Should have bought it for myself!
I bought this fireplace as a gift for my parents this Christmas. It arrived quickly in three different boxes (the mantle casing, the two side shelves, and then a third later shipment of the actual fireplace.)
It took about 3 hours to put everything together. The wood is quality for the price. It's not 3 inch thick or anything, but it's not dainty thin pieces of pressed mulch either. Putting it together was fairly easy for what you're working with.
The fireplace has several settings. You can have the heat on & fireplace off, heat off & fireplace on, heat on or off & the logs on but fire off, fire on but logs off, etc. There are several heat, flame, and log-brightness settings. The heat does not require a "warm up" time for it to blow hot.
One con that stick out, however, is the shelving units. This brings my rating from a 5 to a 4 star. They are free standing, which is nice incase you want move things around quickly, but they are small. They will not be able to house most cable boxes, dvd players, gaming systems, etc. They are good for housing decorations, small frames, nic-naks, and not much else. Not that big of a deal to me, though.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HappyNat The flame is very realistic
We rececived our fireplace with in 3-4 day after ordering it. We were pleasantly surprised on the quality of the wood and the realistic looking flame. It took my husband about 3 1/2 hours to assemble it. Very much a quality product for the money. Easily accomadates a 39" flat screen tv perfectly. Would definately recommend this product. We were leary about ordering online without seeing it first but, very glad we did.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AustinTX Easy to assemble, Not too heavy
Looks great, heats nicely, and adds to the ambiance of the room.
Mine, however, stopped working by remote control almost immediately. I have a request in on what to do.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mpow Looks just like I pictured below the TV; now I am as close as I will ever get to a real fireplace.
Looks just like the picture. Took longer to assemble than the instructions said, could not have put it together without my husband. The fireplace insert was broken when it arrived, the logs were cracked from front to back. Called and got the replacement insert just like they said I would; no instructions as to what to do with the broken part. I am happy it looks very nice and since I cannot have a real woodburning or gas fireplace this is the next best thing; and no wood chopping! Happy Customer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pinkstreak Beautiful Fireplace!
We LOVE our fireplace! It was a great addition to our living room- it makes it so cozy. We put our 50 inch TV on the wall above it, and luckily the fireplace is big enough that it doesn't look dwarfed by the big TV. It doesn't heat our whole living room, but it does heat up the space directly infront of it. The remote control is very convenient! We paid less than $500 for it and Home Depot shipped it for free (Black Friday special), so we definitely got a bargain!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by michael The fireplace warms the living room and has great features
We enjoy the fireplace and the atmosphere it creates.
Our only problem was that the mantel came broken. We called the 1-800 number and they sent us a replacement.
It took awhile to put together but it is well worth it.
We give it Two thumbs up.

Got it on sale. Better than I expected. Easy to assemble. Nice flame and plenty of heat. Quality of the wood is better than others I have looked at. Very happy with it. Well worth the money I spent.
