I had been searching for a while for an electric fireplace that matches my price point, quality, shipping fee, and color since I like all my furnature to match. This seemed to match them all and even moreso when I got an extra discount at checkout. The item arrived in 2 boxes at my door. One box is heavy so if you need to bring it up to a second floor you will need help. If you can use a screwdriver & read directions putting this together is simple. It takes about an hour and does not require more than 1 person. The other great thing is it can be a corner cabint or flat wall display at any time and without any required labor. It has 2 slide out extensions so you just lift a back flap, slide the extensions and now you have a corner cabinet. Sturdy structure, can support a tv (46in perfect, 50in max). My only complaint is the units colo,r which is not the same as the site photo. It is a redwood stain color which if you type that in any search engine you can see the actual color I am referring to. Stone color looks better than picture. Fireplace can run w/wo heat, various brightnesses and the remote has the same control as heater iteself. L/M/H settings that when set goes on & off with temperature. Not quite as loud as a space heater, but not silent either. Tolerable to me. I don't know power usage yet as I am writing this prior to my 1st electric bill. Also what is great is 4 screws hold in the heater so if your style changes in the future or heater dies you can swap them out. A piece you can have for years. Only the top bar gets warm when heater is on so safe for pets, but careful with kids. Thye won't be burned but like any space heater they will get hurt. Heats well but don't expect it to heat an entire house. As a whole best decison ever. Even though I saw the color wasn't right when opening the box, I could see the quality was above par and was set on keeping it. If you are looking for a fireplace this one is for you.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not close at all. Instead of the brown which matched my furnature it is a redwood stain color
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Sturdy,
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good description, but it does come with the remote batteries & the photo color is not correct
This is beautiful, and the best price on the web. I was extremely pleased with the quality of this fireplace. It had a ding on the top mantle piece, so I called the company and they sent a new top in no time at all. I highly recommend this beautiful fireplace. It is exactly what I was looking for, and the customer service couldn't be beat.
Although it looked daunting as I unpacked on the pieces, I was able to totally put this together in an evening. And believe me, I am an amateur assembler!!!!! I love the remote and the ability to adjust flame, log and heat at the flick of a button. Worth every penny.

This is a tasteful addition to our kitchen. We have it in the corner with a counter height table next to it. I think it really blends well with any colors of wood. We have light oak and mission oak. Assembly is required, and we did receive a couple of incorrect pieces for the front (wrong color). They sent out replacement pieces right away. The logs in the inside worked, but were cracked. They were replaced by the manufacturer, not Overstock.com. So eventhough we had some logistical difficulties, we LOVE this fireplace. I would say it is a medium size, not one of those small ones. We have a big vase of flowers on top of it, as well as family photos.It is very stable, yet light enough to move around by yourself. Puts off some good heat if you want it to. Otherwise, enjoy the logs by themselves. You can even dim the lighting of the logs with the remote control. It is very nice. Overstock was very easy to work, too. Their customer service was very good.

This is a wonderful fireplace. It arrived with dents in the top corner piece but within 5 days we had a new one from the manufacturer. I love the different options on the fireplace, heat on/or, log light, flame lights, both. You can also keep the lights, low, medium, or very bright. In addition, when the heater is on, it is nice and toasty. Great feature: drop down corner leaf. Suggestion: measure your corner before purchasing to make sure it will fit. It is bigger than it looks in the picture.

I'm a female in my mid 40's and was able to put this together in about 2 1/2 hours by myself. You don't need anyone to hold anything while you put it together. There aren't predrilled holes when they want you to use the wood screws to attach it all together so that took some elbow grease, the screws go in if you press hard enough (no predrilling is really needed but it would have helped). I had some trouble getting the top to fit on perfectly but once I loosened some screws the sides had more play and I was able to get it to set properly. The wood is darker then the picture but looks beautiful when put together. My Cable box and home theatre fit comfortable on top of the mantle. I have to be honest, I just put it together last evening and haven't actually plugged it in yet but so far I'm very pleased with the look.
I have another one, and actually like the remote and heater display better on this one tho it actually cost less than my other one. It looks very nice and was very easy to put together and I had to do it alone. I am no spring chicken anymore so I was pleased that it went quickly (2 hours and that includes drinking a pot of coffee with it) so it went rather quickly.
This was the easiest fireplace to put together! The color is great and it looks wonderful in our little corner. Very pleased with this purchase. I love where the controls are located and the digital readout. All in all, this is the best fireplace we've ever purchased (#3).
We bought this for our cold computer room. The stain is a reddish oak, which works with our floors. The faux slate looks pretty decent and the flames are pretty realistic. It came quickly and was easy to assemble. A couple of beefs I have - the top wood panel for putting it in a corner doesn't match the rest of the wood. We don't plan to use it in a corner, so it's not that big of a deal. The cord is defective. If you move it at all, it won't turn on until you jiggle the cord again. The biggest disappointment is that the vent for where the heat comes out is not all the way across the grill, as the picture leads you to believe. Behind that grill is the control panel on one side and the "real" vent is on the other half, so it really only is about 7" wide of heat output. If we keep the room to the door closed, it does heat it up to a nice temperature, but I would have preferred to be able to feel the heat output on my back as I sit at the computer.
This is a great fireplace that serves as a piece of furniture in our basement gameroom. The mantle is wide enough for pictures and other decorative accents I love that it can also go into a corner. The slate looks very realistic. Not sure what it is made of, but it is definitely synthetic. It can heat a small room in about 5-10 minutes. The Heating part is a bit noisier than I had thought it would be, but nothing drastic. There are many levels of flame, log glow and heat. I like that you can have just heat or just flame too. The heat thermostat only has preset temps, which I thought was a bit strange (66 degrees, 70 degrees, and a few others.). The fireplace comes in two pretty large boxes, but putting it together was pretty simple with some basic tools (Took about an hour and a half). On the downside, my tv remote also activates the fireplace, so we have to watch that it is not accidentally turned on when we don't want it to be and can be kind of annoying. Overall, this was a nice buy for the money and we love the coziness it adds to out space.
