Absolutely a great buy has everything I wanted!

You will be so pleased with this fireplace! Has everything, thermostat, fan, heat or no heat, remote control, timer, 4 flame levels and flame brightness ( one level with just embers), large 26" wide by 17" firebox, LED for the flame and embers effects, very realistic flames and embers, flames mostly orange with slight blue and red flickers, amazingly realistic looking. Assembly is a breeze, it comes 85% assembled, just assemble the top and the two side shelf boards, that's it. Took me about an hour just taking my time and enjoying each of the results! The cabinet material is pressed wood, just like most furniture today, but don't frown on that, it is a very rich looking piece of furniture and should last a very long time. If there was one thing that I would like to have had, that would be a "crackling fire sound". But guess what, I made my own using miniature speaker. Couple the crackle sound with the fire display, so relaxing! The lighting on this model are LED, which means they are very efficient, will last a lifetime, never need replacing and provide better lighting for a very realistic looking fire! I have owned this unit for 2 weeks now, I am so pleased with it. I did do a lot of research before buying an electric fireplace, so I knew what features to look for and this one had them all! The price is amazing....comparable units are at least $150 to $300 more. I can't say enough good things about my new fireplace and my wife loves it! If you can find this, buy it immediately, they don't last long in the stores! Bottom line, if you can find this fireplace at Walmart store or online, buy it immediately, do not pass go! By the way, I am not easily impressed and usually find faults with most things, but this is as close to perfect as it gets!

Great Fireplace/TV Stand

This product was easy to assemble. It fit together well. And is of excellent quality for a "do-it-yourself" assembly piece of furniture. The fireplace is very realistic. And the heater works quite well also. We are very pleased with it. I looked at several of these online. And for the money. This is definitely a bargain. I would recommend this to anyone.
This picture does not do it justice.

Glad I went with this product!

After searching and reading other reviews this seemed like the best choice simply because of the ease of set up and countless 5 star reviews. I received my stand in less then the time quoted and seriously only took 30 mins to put the top mantel on. The fireplace is realistic and the wood looks quality! I am absolutely happy with my purchase, there were several others out there that was more expensive.. But in my opinion; save your money and search no more!

Beautiful and efficient

This fireplace/media stand is everything I was looking for. The assembly is simple and fast (about 1 hour for one person) and an upgrade to any living room. I live in a two story home and this is perfect for the lower level, it has a built-in blower and the remote makes it so convenient. The look and finish of this piece of furniture is outstanding. Everything I was hoping for and more.
Better Homes & Gardens Media Fireplace

Excellent Product

I had been looking for an electric fireplace that was not only elegant but efficient as well for several years and every time I skimmed through the information of the other units I was put off by price, quality issues, assembly issues, etc. This electric fireplace met my needs in the fact that it is not only a beautiful piece of furniture, well made, easy to assemble and uses a standard electric outlet which was extremely important as I live in an apartment. The flame is realistic and relaxing to just watch. The heat is also good and the only thing that would make it perfect would be an adjustable blower unit. I had purchased a Better Home and Garden desk which is why I trusted the brand as it also was a nicely built unit and fortunately both pieces match in my living room. I am not one to write reviews for standard items but with this particular item I felt so wonderful about it that I needed to write this review!!

bad purchase

Did not work the next winter; only used one winter. do not rate these type items until after the first season's use. poor quality. whalen wanted me to purchase another insert knowing it was a manufacture's fault and not the user.

Easy, Beautiful, and Right On The Money!

My wife and I have been searching for a fireplace/TV stand for a while. We have been watching one at Lowes, and many other outlets, including Walmart. They have a few on there website; however, we did not bite the bullet until last night. We found this on their website and were amazed at the price considering all other were well over $300-$400. We actually picked it up from our local store and brought it home. It comes about 85% assembled and took me about 30 minutes to set up and about 45 minutes to hook up our cable, and surround sound speakers (all of our cords and wires not had to go through a smaller hole). Either way, the look of this fireplace it amazing. The color is amazing, deep, rich, and looks more like real real wood and not like that fake veneer stuff, although I am certain it is veneer. The cost is amazing and it even comes with a remote! This was one feature we had to have. If I had to name one con it would be that it will take a while to heat up your home. We have approximately 450-500 sq feet on our first floor, and it takes a while. However, once it is on and doing its magic, its solid. I definitely recommend this product. The name "Better Homes and Garden" should say it all. Its a solid piece of furniture, the price is great, and the look will make people believe you paid twice what you actually paid.

Total Frustration

So I found this electric fireplace online and saw it had great reviews. Bought it online and picked it up last week. Got it home and no way you can save the box if something is wrong with it. Beautiful piece of furniture so I was excited. Plugged in the unit and noticed a loud clicking sound when I turned on the flame effect. Looks nice but very irritating to have a loud clicking sound coming from your fireplace. Called WalMart and they said I can return it. I knew that but such a hassle trying to return a big piece of furniture like this..especially if you do not own a truck. Assembled now ( easy assembly by the way). So then called Whalen customer service which takes forever. Finally got someone who told me to remove the back panel and see if anything was hitting the rotor that creates the flame effect..said that happens sometimes in shipping. So yesterday I pulled the back panel and found nothing hitting the rotor rod or whatever it is called that creates the flame effect. Turned on the unit and flames to see if I could see anything hitting it or whatever and heard the noise coming from the small motor that turns the rod. Heater is fine and warms pretty well but I still would like the flame effect as that is the point of buying this stupid thing to begin with. I would like to keep this unit but if I have to change a motor in it and wire it etc not sure it is worth the effort and maybe find something of better quality. Totally disgusted. Nice TV stand. Thats about it...fireplace noisy and not good quality. May just dump it in the trash or use it for a stand so I dont have to haul it all over the place and take this experience as a lesson learned. Do not buy this...oh and the service plan from WalMart is useless. They just tell you to go to Whalen.

Nice fireplace if you are able to hide the damage

The fireplace was shipped (free of charge) way before the scheduled date. Works well. I want people to know that this product is probably a factory reject that's why is very inexpensive. By reading other reviews before purchase almost everybody claims they received damaged product. Mine appears to have damage done not by shipping but by factory assembly. But the damage is minimum and is easily fixable and in a place where is not visible. I wish Walmart would place disclaimer informing shoppers if they want to purchase this product "as is". I am planning on contacting Walmart to see what they have to say about that.
We apologize for the inconvenience we may have caused. Our goal is that every customer is a satisfied customer, I will forward this email to our engineering team. Once again thank you for your feedback.

This is a very nice unit !!

This unit is better than we expected. Not hard to set up with the instructions easy to follow. Flames can be used with or without heat. Looks great with flat screen on it or on wall above it.
