I researched electric fireplaces for a month before deciding on this one. Even though it is a little pricer than others I was looking at, I'm glad I picked this one. I couldn't be happier. It two myself and a friend just under an hour to put it together, as long as you follow the directions I don't foresee any issues. It is very big and fit the spot I had in mind perfectly. Nice quality wood and the flame is probably as realistic as they come. Color is just as described a dark walnut. Didn't buy it for the heat just for the look but from what I can tell it puts out. Overall very pleased.
I've had my eye on this electric corner fireplace for over a year, but decided to wait because all the suppliers were some thrid-party or seemed suspicious...The fireplace was expensive and I didn't want to have to go through trying to return over 100 lbs of boxes to one of these potential vendors. In the last year, I have bought a couple things from Overstock, and was happy with the quality products being just as they're described, the free shipping, etc. Then, I was looking for my fireplace again, and found it available here on Overstock for an Amazing price! And it was available to ship for free within a few days!! I was totally shocked, but purchased immediately. Fieplace came in two boxes with 7 days of order. Took a little over an hour to put together with minimal help from a friend. The fireplace is beautiful--I really really love it! I love the full size features, the beautiful quality of the wood, the many settings for the firebox, in both brightness and in heat...it is really a quality piece. I'm so glad I got this at Overstock--it made me much more confident in my purchase, and I would highly recommend.
