What reviewers didn't like

Can’t heat a large room
Flames aren't as realistic as others
The only thing that indicates this fire is artificial is the lack of the crackling sound.
The only other negative we’ve found with this fireplace (besides the fact that the thermostat doesn’t work in our application) is that there’s no sound of a crackling fire. We solved that with a separate, external crackler sound system that we sit in front of the fireplace.
Even though the fireplace looks authentic enough, the glass it comes with may produce reflections, foiling the almost real look. It is easy to install, but still, it may give a few new users some headache.
This unit is strictly a fireplace insert, so you cannot easily mount it to a wall or move it to different locations
