What We Liked Most
What a beautiful piece of furniture. This high quality Real Flame entertainment center with electric fireplace from Ashley Furniture in dark espresso has turned out to be a top rated product from our reviews.
One thing to clear up is that this is an electric fireplace not a gel fuel model as it is uncleary listed at Amazon and other sites. This unit is designed with a 1400 watt heating system that is capable of putting out over 4700 BTUs of heat per hour. Because it is a vivid flame electric fireplace this unit comes equipped with a programmable thermostat complete with timer function and 5 brightness levels to create the perfect ambiance. It also includes a fell formatted remote control. The Real Flame Ashley entertainment center electric fireplace in dark espresso features realistic vivid flame LED lighting system technology with dynamic embers and 3 dimensional logs inside the glass.
We were impressed by the adequate storage provided by this entertainment center. You will find 2 adjustable shelves creating 3 shelf spaces on each side that are 13.5 inches wide and 12 inches deep and then there is the center shelf above the firebox that measures 27 inches wide and 12,5 inches deep. The top mantel shelf is 40.4 inches wide and 18 inches deep. It is advertised to hold an HDTV up to 65″ wide and weighing up to 100 pounds. Unlike many mantel style electric fireplaces on the market this unit is a larger full size unit that will be a fine furniture addition to any size room.
The unit is built with solid woods and veneered MDF for years of durable enjoyment. The Real Flame electric firebox is built with powder-coated steel for strength and durability.
The unit has a total weight of 146 pounds and comes shipped in 3 easier to handle cartons. Each box is well packaged and each part is clearly marked for easy assembly. All the necessary hardware and instructions are included with the unit and you should be able to assemble unit in about an hour. Then simply plug it into a standard 15 amp 120 volt plugin and enjoy.
Awesome fireplace. Came in 3 boxes. Boxes had boxes inside making for very safe packaging.
What We Didn’t Like:
We were very impressed with every aspect of this Real Flame Ashley entertainment center electric fireplace. The only problem we found was not in the unit but in the hard to follow advertising on most web sites. We mentioned above that many sites are confusing this listing with gel fuel options.
