"Fireplace" arrived within five days of order. Packaged in two easy to handle boxes. I was able to carry them into the house and downstairs to the family room without assistance. Instructions were easy to read and follow. Assembly did not take a great deal of time. The unit was assembled, put in place and to use in less than an hour. The "flame" is quite realistic looking and adjustable. Love the unit it is everything the description said and then some. Have recommended the item to several friends.

We purchased this fireplace for our breakfast room and it is very nice. The log and the flame are very decorative. Most importantly, the heat adjusts to our room temperature. Unfortunately, it took a period of time to put together. Overall, we are pleased.

This unit arrived in good shape and assembled easily. The simulated fire is as good as it gets though my kids wanted it to 'crackle'.

I love it!! It was very easy to assemble (just make sure you pay attention to the predrilled holes-they are tiny). Everything fit together well. The wood looks better than I expected. The heat that this small unit puts out is perfect for an apartment or a average family room. Very easy to operate with the remote control. I am so impressed with this little fireplace that I"m thinking of buying one for my grandparents!

This Electric fireplace looks great and doesn't take up a lot of room. It heats well, as some of the other reviewers have noted there is a humming sound when the unit is on and you can defiantly hear the fan for the heater when it kicks on. It was pretty easy to put it together, yes the instructions are not great but it's still easy enough.
I highly recommend this product. it is a wonderful addition to our sun porch and compliments the other furniture as well as our wooden windows and floor. My only complaint is the rather loud sound of the motor when the electrical unit is on. The actual flame and simulated logs look very real!

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. This is a wonderful fireplace. Its size is perfect and wood is of a good quality. It was not difficult to assemble and all the parts fit together well. It look a lot more expensive then it was because of the rich color and the wood itself.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? It was right on the mark...actually the real object is much better then we expected.
Nice Product if you can ever get it put together. The instructions were very vague and the illustrations did no help. The wood screws included were not long enough to fasten some of the pieces together as directed, so I had to use my own screws. The instructions for the firebox directs you to use the installed brackets, but there were no brackets, In addition, the remote control does not work. I admit I am not a real handy man, and it is obvious that I didn't get everything required to put the unit together smoothly. But the instructions (or destructions) were terrible!!! They even had words that were mis-spelled. Do not take this as a negative review, once installed (an hour or two later) it is a great little fireplace. Works Fine and Looks Great!

The unit was as advertised but the remote control unit did not fully work. Only some buttons worked.Overstock handled my complaint and a new one shipped to me express mail!! Problem is again only some buttons work again. Different buttons weren't this time. So I'm using both remotes to have full function of the unit. In fairness to overstock I didn't ask for another remote they aren't the issue it's the manufacturer of the remote. They didn't test the second one or it's so cheap it broke during shipping. Great fireplace, piece of *&$%*&&^%#$#@ remote!!
This well made heater adds ambience to my 300 square foot study and manages to keep the room warm on cold days and nights. Appearance and construction quality quite good. Easy to assemble. Compared to other heaters on the retail market, this one is a bargain.
I received my fireplace/heater within 5 days of placing my order. It came in two deliveries, one day apart. Putting it together was a breeze and I am far from being an engineer. I put the whole thing together myself, including the heating unit, and it took about 45 minutes. The coloring is a little redder than I wanted, so it is more of a cherry and not mahogany finish.....i may re-stain it later, no biggie Overall, it looks great. It is a perfect fit for the location.....in my bedroom, below my TV. It suprisingly warms up the master bedroom in just a few minutes (I have the setting on Medium) and I like the fact that is has a remote control. I also like that it cycles on and off and is not a "constant on" draining factor. The flames look fairly real and the logs look fairly realistic. I think it is a decent product for the price. What I needed was a heater (as the central heat just doesn't warm that room up quickly enough) and a place for my cable set top box. I was able to kill two birds with one stone with this product and I am very happy with it. I've already received quite a few compliments from friends and family.
Love this Fireplace, Love the Remote, Flame/Light and Heat. It was a lot to put together. Noting horrible just our last one came completely assembled so this one when we had to put it all together was a pain. But Not horrible. We put this in our basement for the Living room and the 2 kids rooms we have down there. Heat's up fast and helps with the heat in the entire basement. Great Product and Value. The wood wasn't As Dark as I had hoped for but still very nice.
The fireplace looks great and the firebox is awesome. But the 2 panels came damaged and we could not completely assemble it. However, customer service was fantastic and the replacement parts should arrive by the end of the week. Hopefully that will allow us to really see how it looks.
I love my new electric fireplace. I shopped around for what I wanted and this one is perfect.

We bought this fireplace to install in a rental unit that previously had a cast iron wood-burning fireplace. We deemed the wood-burner as unsafe, as it was being used in a bedroom, with bed hangings and other flammables. The unit went together quickly. We installed a dedicated electrical line, since this pulls a lot of power. This unit is particularly useful as a heater, since it has a thermostat, and can be set to keep a room at an even temperature. The remote is nice for the bedside table. And, the flame effect flickers, if not quite real, still adds 'ambiance'. Thanks, Overstock. This is the second electric fireplace I've had from here.
