After getting my unite, I noticed that it was real wood, not pressed board. I love the color and the realistic look of the electric fire place.When I went to unpack The manel, I noticed that the edge was crushed. . I called overstock right away. They were so helpful. I recieved a replacement right away. They were so good about the whole ordeal.
We needed a stand to hold our new HDTV and also one that was able to hold my "old school" stereo components (which it does quite nicely since the shelves and glass doors are wider than most other stands out there). The added fireplace sealed the deal since my wife has wanted one previously. The unit arrived in a timely manner, but unfortunately suffered some delievery damage to the front of the main bottom piece and the glass in the box that contained the firebox was shattered. Immediately contacted Overstock customer service and they were extremely helpful. They agreed to send us a new unit and they opened a UPS damage claim on the first one. So, the second unit arrived (undamaged this time) shortly thereafter. It was not difficult to build, but I did take note of several issues with it. The staining (Espresso) was not the best on a lot of the pieces. It was not uniformly applied. Darker in some areas. lighter in others. Fortunately, most of the areas are not readily visible. Also, some of the veneer on the edge of the front piece is not properly glued down, but again not very noticeable unless you rub a finger across it.. Lastly, some of the anchors and screws (cam locks) that are used attach the parts to each other did not line up properly, so it took some doing to get them to work properly. The bottom line is this: I can't recommend this item overall. It is nice enough once built and serves it purpose, plus the fireplace is very "cozy", but the quality of the materials along with the aforementioned issues left me feeling like it was not worth the price we paid. Too much of a hassle however to disassemble and return. Too bad it was one of the few stands out there (if not the only one!) I found with the features that we were looking for. Next time, I think we will stick to the local "brick and mortar" stores to know what the quality is like before we make a purchase like this in the future.
I absolutely love this fireplace. We have a small living room so being able to combine the ambiance of the fireplace with media storage was perfect. My son put it together pretty easily but I could have done it as well. It looks like a high end piece and I am very picky. The remote is great! I can't say it warms the room as quickly as stated, but it does a good job after a 1/2 hour or so. The Real Flame fire definitely looks more real than some I have seen in stores.
