Kingwood Media Fireplace
Would love to give it 5 stars but no remote...
Aboslutely goregous unit. The fireplace it self is so nice at night. Only regret is that there is no remote control in the box so you have to manually adjust it. Other than that, I am very happy with it.

No regrets on this purchase!
What a great purchase. This fireplace has been a wonderful addition to our living room. The ambiance it provides, along with the incredible heat has made our living room a LIVABLE room!!! The assembly was quick and simple and any previous comments about this unit being loud or noisy are, in my opinion, not warranted. It IS an electric fireplace with a fan. This unit is no noisier than any other electric heater - which is what one would expect FROM AN ELECTRIC heater!!!! We also found that the "fire" look was one of the nicer that we have seen.
As per my title - ABSOLUTELY no regrets with this purchase. WE LOVE IT!

Couldn't be happier
Purchased this unit for 299$ on sale and couldnt be more pleased. I had read the reviews and was a little iffy on how lots of people were saying it was very noisy. Luckily for me, i ignored those reviews. The fireplace is NOT noisy what so ever. My ps3 fan is louder then the fireplace. Very easy to install.

Excellent fireplace & sturdy unit!!!
I had read the reviews and was wiery on purchasing it, but saw it in the store and decided to buy it. This unit did have a lot of pieces, however the instructions were easy and I was able to put it together by myself in about an hour. It is sturdy and holds my 50" TV very nicely, and cabinet shelves are adjustable and deep. Another item that I was wiery about is the noise of the fireplace blower after reading some reviews... I'm not sure why there are complaints as this blower is much quieter than any other gas or electric fireplace that I've seen. This is an excellent unit and I'm so happy with my half price purchase. I would suggest waiting for the sale. My only complaint is the little plastic tabs used to hide the caps don't really stick, but they are hidden in the cabinets anyways and are not visible. I would definitely recommend this unit to others!!!

Very nice Fireplace!
Got this fireplace as it was on sale for 1/2 price. Was pleasantly surprised. Very well laid out instructions for set up. Took more than an hour. But finished the whole thing by myself and wasn't frustrated with any of the steps. Once it was put together it looks great! Not cheap looking at all, like some of the others I have looked at in the store. Gives off a nice heat and looks great without the heat too. I like that the cupboards have doors. There is enough space above the fireplace for all of my gadgets. I highly recommend this fireplace!

Good for one year
I bought this fireplace at 50% off the last week of November 2011. By February 2012 the heater controls gave out. I replaced them. Now the first week of December 2012 (2 weeks after warranty runs out) no more light show. If I only wanted a heater, I could have paid a lot less.

One of my better purchases.
We purchased this unit on the weekend put it together with no problem. We took our time, and everything lined up perfectly. I did glue everything as I wanted it to be sturdy considering it is holding my tv. I wish it had a remote, but it wasn't a deal breaker. Note though that labeling your electronics before unplugging would have saved me a considerable amount of time.

amazing home purchase
I had a cold walkout basement and a tacky computer desk as a 'temporarily' entertainment table with cable wires hanging everywhere from our wall mount tv. We bough this fire place at 50% off , taking care of both issues and it has really improved the look of our basement. Set up was a breeze (well, as far as I saw my husband putting it together) and it warms the room very quickly. We are making use of the basement which never happened in the cold months.

Noisy but Pretty
I wouldn't pay $600 for $300 it is a steal. Assembly went went -- used the glue as suggested.
The unit was extremely loud so at the store I exchanged only the individual heater unit with no issues. The second heater is still loud but not nearly as loud as the first unit. To be honest, I do not use it for heat. If company is over I turn it on for ambiance .... to leave it on for heat I find the loud motor sound annoying. Perhaps I am picky. The overall look of the fireplace is great. I have a lot of compliments. I really like how the front glass is tinted as many units are not and it looks extremely cheap and fake in my opinion. I bought a second one for a gift.... hopefully they don't mind the noise ;)

Very easy to assemble. Great looking and sturdy.
A little noisy and scratches very easily.
Othen than that it's great!
