Arrived in less than a week. Assembles with the help of the husband-must drill into your wall to attach the bar it slides onto-5 holes, plus 2 @ the bottom side. Hang it so you can see the stones, they make it look so modern. The stones come in a separate bag and you arrange them on the lower edge before attaching the front glass part. The 'flame' shoots up from underneath and behind the stones-looks amazing! The heater motor is super quiet and boy can it throw the heat! The remote is nice, it beeps when you hit any of the buttons, so you know you've hit them. The flame brightness adjusts to your liking via the remote and so does the heat level-perfect. The remote requires 2-AAA batteries, not included. In complete darkness, the 'on' button on top of the fireplace has a red glow that sends a red stipe up the wall it is hung on-but only when in use. That light can be remedied by placing something like a plastic charge card (or the like) on top of the frame.(heat resistant) I have been very pleased with the multiple purchases I have made through Overstock. Another quality product. Very satisfied.
If your in a place without a "real" fireplace this is the ticket. The only drawback is that when you have it on heat it will discolor the paint on the wall. We have decided to put copper tile along that wall so it won't matter. Even using it just for the look or mood it is a beautiful accent to any room.
The product is very pretty but if you really need to heat a basement room, this might not be for you. The heat comes out of the top of the fireplace at a very slow fan speed. It took four hours to feel any appreciable change in room temperature. Also, there is no thermostat so you have to manually turn it on and off, which can be inconvenient if you doze off . It's so lovely that I hated to return it but it just didn't do the job that we needed it to do. Maybe if you have a small, enclosed room it will work for you.
Recommend, depends. Nice unit; value is there, but size is not what you might expect. When I read the "window" was 22 x 36 and actual unit dimensions were not available... I assumed the overall unit was larger. Nope. The unit is 22 x 35" out of the box. Another inch (to 36" width) comes from curve of window but does not add to actual width. I am disappointed; this unit is too small for my needs. Oh, well... someone is getting a present... grin.
