Looked at quite a few fireplaces and decided to buy this model in the store today. I'm really happy I purchased this as it is a very nice fireplace especially at the sale price of $99.99. All I had to do was place the stones and plug it in as I am using it free standing and not wall mounted. The flames look great and I don't plan on using the heater but wanted to check it out anyway and the heater really throws out some heat.
This product worked great at first. After about a week the "fire" switch broke. The heater still worked but 2 days later it so went out. I had to return item as defective.
The heater works great and the flames are very relaxing to look at. I like the choice of several heating settings. I was so pleased with this purchase, I purchase one more.
