I am SO happy I purchased this! I wanted a fireplace without the hassle of cutting wood and cleaning up ashes. The color has a redish tint to it and it's gorgeous. I was surprised by the heat it puts off. During the day I turn my heater off and simply run this. I have an open floor plan so it heats my kitchen, dining room, and living room. I love that it has a remote and that the controls are hidden. I signed up for club O prior to purchasing it so I saved the money on shipping and got a $$ credit to use later. With this purchase alone you recoup the cost of joining. I have a 42" flat screen and it fits perfectly. The shelves are plenty deep for nick nacks. I was expecting it to seem extremely cheap when we got it (based on other reviews) but it is well made. Of course it's not solid wood...but that's why it's as inexpensive as it is. My husband put it together and it took him about 2 hours. He had no problems as far as wood splitting or things not fitting properly. I have a 2 year old and I was concerned about how hot the surface would get. It gets pretty warm but not bad enough that it should burn him (I've tried to drive in the "no touch" but sometimes they test things when your back is turned). The details are gorgeous and I've gotten compliments from every visitor we've had. I really like that it doesn't stick out very far and take up much floor space. The fire looks more real than I expected. Would purchase again in a heart beat!
