This fireplace is awesome and adds such a nice touch to our living room! I am so happy I bought this! It is a beautiful dark espresso finish (the dark walnut color wording had me concerned at first). It holds my stereo system receiver like a glove!! and there is a hole precut for this as well in both backboards. It took me and my brother about an hour doing this together. I would recommend help in assembling this. The top front corner did come slightly smashed, but a dark brown marker makes it not noticeable. Also, the edging for the top panel had come slightly jarred and I had to push it back together. I don't plan to move this thing around much, so I'm not too worried about these issues. In spite of these issues, I'm still a very satisfied customer. Best fireplace on the market for my needs!
The finish looks better than I expected for an MDF based piece. There are no sliders on the wooden legs. Only three shelf adjusting holes are provided. The provided printed instructions were more accurate than the online version, but eliminated all the text on the pictures. Install took one 79 year old man over half a day. Not enough wood glue is provided. The screws to install the fireplace are almost impossible to install (I only used the top two as a result). I followed another buyers advice to put top on after installing the fireplace insert, but it was still too tough since no starter holes were provided. No wire guides are provided.
