We moved last year to a house without a fireplace and thought an infrared fireplace would be a good solution. I searched many many places for one. I was looking for something that would provide good heat, wasn't too cheesy looking, would fit our decor, and something that wasn't too high since we planned to put our TV on it. The height issue was a big problem with finding something. Most of the shorter fireplaces I found had more of a modern design, which would not go with our decor.

I thought I finally found the one that checked the boxes the best. So needless to say I was disappointed that what I thought I had ordered wasn't exactly what I received. Overall, it does match the picture in most areas but instead of the cute cabinet door pulls pictured, I got ugly square knobs. Mine also has legs, which the one in the picture doesn't. Perhaps the biggest irritation is that the height is 35 inches high, instead of the listed 32". There were plenty of others I would have chosen if I wanted one 35 inches high. I picked this one since it was the shortest I found with more of a traditional design and an infrared firebox.

The furniture its self is nice. My daughter and assembled it ourselves. It arrive with a very minor ding on a corner but there is a marker you can use to cover scratches. The felt pads placed on the inside of the cabinet doors to protect the box arrived placed so far inside they do not touch the frame when closed.

The fire is a bit cheesy looking but I'm not sure that isn't just what you get with an electric fire. I have seen much worse.

After all the searching and finally placing the order, then waiting on the shipping, means by the time we got it and got it assembled it wasn't cold enough to use it. So now that we have had some cold weather, I have finally turned it on. This thing puts out almost no heat. Yes, if you stand in front you can feel some minor warmth but it makes no difference in the room. Major disappointment, what a waste of money.
