When I received this I was impressed with how well it was packaged. After I assembled the piece and set the 42" tv on top I was very pleased. I put the cans of fuel in of which literally warmed the room. I was concerned with the fact that I have electrical outlets directly behind the unit. The firebox protects quite well, there was no heat that went to the back of the unit what so ever! Two cans of fuel is plenty and if I put more in it would get too hot in the room. I must say that my husband was very skeptical until he saw it up. I have been an O customer for quite a few years and they are just wonderful to deal with. Oh by the way the Club O has really saved me lots of money!

This is just what we were looking for. Matches our furniture and love the atmosphere in the room. We use the Real Flame gel fuel which gives a real crackling sound as it burns. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a gel fuel burning fireplace. Glad we found it on your site. We searched several sites, and the price was great as well as the product. It took the two of us to put it together but it wasn't hard to do. Thanks again and I'm sure we'll be back! Love your site.
I was very pleased with this purchase, from delivery, to assembly, to finished look. The assembly instructions were very clear, and parts were complete. I was able to assemble by myself in about an hour (probably would have taken my husband 30 minutes!). The gel fuel isn't as convenient as an electric unit, but the real flame with the crackle sound is very nice. It's a gorgeous addition to our living room.

This is absolutely beautiful and the fire glow and the crackling of the logs couldn't be more real. I have enjoyed it immensely. The only problem they sent the wrong color. It's not the color in the picture. Doesn't match my other furniture but it was too much trouble to send it back. So I'm stuck with the color. I ordered two and both colors were wrong.
I love this fireplace! The gel really does crackle like logs in a fire. The flame is real, and actually gives off a decent amount of heat. I've only used one can at a time in it so far...just for ambiance. It's a beautiful effect, and using more than one will keep my living room nice & cozy this winter. I did put most of it together myself, but had to get help to get the top on. It was pretty frustrating to try and do with just one person (the top part, that is). I ended up putting the top on and then putting the screws in after, because I just couldn't get it to go on evenly by myself. But it worked, and is very nice!
I like this fireplace. However, the color is too light. It's closer to a light cherry finish. I really wanted a mahogany or dark cherry finish to match the decor in my formal living room. This is why I only gave it a two star rating instead of five.
The Fireplace arrived in only a couple of days. I was very surprised. It was a little tricky to put together as the directions missed a step that I had to figure out on my own. The finish is a little redder than the other Mahogany/dark wood I have in my home, but looks nice on the wall. All in all a nice product but i'm not sure it was worth the price? The picture shows the fireplace darker than it really is. It's a little more red-tone
