I purchased this for our family room. It was relatively easy to put together but is best done by 2 people. I had an issue with the door that hides the media equipment. It did not fit or close properly; however, I contacted the company and they sent replacement parts. Looks great, works well and the remote and dimming features on the fireplace are nice.
The Fireplace looks very nice, it seems to work properly (however I cannot truly tell due to the fact that winter has not started yet, so I don't know how we'll it will warm up the space where I have placed it). I can say that it does light up properly and all the bells and whistles work as they should, that being said I will tell everybody that it is really difficult to put together. I have lots of experience putting stuff together and I have to say that this one is probably the hardest I've come across, if you have the patience then by all means buy this cause it looks fantastic.
