WARNING: positioning anything on top of your fireplace mantel poses a degree of risk especially in the case of electronic appliances or equipment. If you elect to display a television we recommend that it be a slim profile flat-screen and that it be positioned away from the front edge of the mantel where there is a degree of heat generated from the firebox. It is also recommended that any flat screen TV be secured to the wall behind it for added safety and security. Manufacturer assumes no responsibility for items placed on top of a fireplace mantel.
This was fairly easy to assemble, however it took me about two hours to do it on my own Ė and Iím fairly handy. As someone else mentioned, an electric screwdriver will really help. The directions are not the most clear. They lack a lot of detail and have several steps per picture. I noticed that for the smaller parts there was just no way to tell which way they should be facing based on the picture. Itís easy to reason it out, but the instructions wonít really give you a lot of clues.
The color is pretty true to the picture. It does have a cherry color to it, so be aware. For me, it was exactly what I was looking for.
A couple of notes. The wooden pegs used for some of the assembly are smaller than the pre-drilled holes. You might want to have some wood glue handy when you put this together. Also, I was having a heck of a time getting one piece to attach. It turned out that I had over tightened (with the electric screwdriver) the peg part of the cam bolts. If youíre having a problem getting the cam bolts to lock you may want to try loosening the peg part (less than a quarter turn for me) so they line up better. Once I figured that out it made it easier and everything came together without any more issues.
This is fairly sturdy. It came in two boxes, one about forty pounds, the other close to eighty. Just be aware that theyíre heavy. The Ďfireí is fine, about what youíd expect for this price point. Itís fun to play around with the lighting, through the loud beep is a little disconcerting.
One thing that I don't remember seeing on Overstock which was included in the box information was that a television over 46 inches was not recommended,.
I havenít played with the heater really, itís June, but I did turn it on briefly as I was messing around with the whole thing and it started shooting out hot air right away.
Overall Iíd recommend this product.

Wow, talk about being super impressed. Read all of the reviews prior to the purchase as well as surfed the net to make sure this is what I wanted. It was relatively easy for my hubby and son to put together. It is a very dark color almost a black. I feel the logs and flames look as real as can be expected and it really does put plenty of warmth out. I am thrilled that I took the chance on such a high dollar item without seeing it in person. It was well worth it. Thanks to the reviewers to, the comments always help me out.
5 stars. I was very impressed with the overall quality. It looks really nice and it is a solid piece of furniture.
It took me about an hour to assemble and everything fit together very nicely.
I have it in our master bedroom and it heats that room to a very comfortable level in a short period of time.
If I had one complaint it would be that the heater and fake fireplace is just a little bit noisy but it's nothing that would stop me from purchasing another one.
This product was easy to put together, looks great, holds TV, Dvd player, Cable box, WII, etc. in easy reach. Has storage on the sides, and best of all the fireplace which looks great and has a heater if desired. Makes for a great TV room, with all the comfort of a real fireplace, and the looks of actual flames. I love it.
We recieved the fireplace within a week. It was a bit difficult to put together. The first one we recieved the fireplace was very noisy so we had to return it. We recieved the replacement within a week and it worked fine. They gave us a shipping label to return the broken fireplace.
It looks just like the picture. The color is exact. It is nice looking and the heater when on puts out a LOT of heat. When the heat is not on the fire is a nice background.
I think it was a good deal and the customer service was outstanding.
My husband didn't have any problem putting it together, rather quickly, The directions looked confusing to me. It looks nice and fit our space perfectly. It's summer, so we haven't really used it as a fireplace yet, tested it and it put out heat quickly,not any louder than any other electric fireplace heating unit.
Definitely a great price & outstanding quality. The unit, with the exception of the back board, is solid wood. Definitely took a while to put together (3+ hours), but very pleased with the end result! By far an incredible value for such a great product. I wish there was a matching end table!
The heater went out after 3 years. I called the company and they were really nice and helpful. I had to replace the heater part and it was $35 included shipping. It was under warranty for 1 year, so I guessing I did good. It really keeps the space warm and its pretty to look at even in the summer (You can use the firelace lights without heater. I'm just saying. LOL)
Hello suncityjulie, yes this does have a fan to disperse heat. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 23, 2014

Will my cable box and Wii console be safe sitting on the shelf above the fireplace. I know it says something about things on the mantel getting hot, but nothing about the shelf in the middle.sami3903 on Jul 7, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I'm so sorry for the confusion. This is designed to have a flat screen TV sitting on it, and shelf is designed to hold cable boxes, Wii or anything else. The heat blows out and down so the until will not get hot.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 11, 2012
