I discovered very quickly not to judge this fireplace by its size! It is compact, but in all the right ways! Produces great heat and the "fire" is very realistic, making it feel almost like a real fireplace! The only assembly required was putting on the legs, which literally took less than 5 minutes. I would highly recommend this product to anyone wanting the warming feel of a fireplace, but are limited on space!
The whole family loves our new fireplace. We spent the extra money and selected this fireplace because of the Infrared Heater. We have a grand room (living room, dining room, open kitchen) which is about 1,000 square feet. With the infrared heater on we dont need to have our thermostat for forced air heat higher than 68. House temp with the infrared on has actually gotten to 77 with it being 45 outside. I like that we are able to keep our bedrooms at a cooler temp for sleeping and yet be able to heat the grand room up while we are enjoying tv and dinner. The cabinet is very well made. We did hit one tricky part in assembly when we had a very hard time lining up the dowels but after some a while we were able to make it work.
