Super Awesome!

Pros: fast shipping, good savings, contemporary look, remote, excellent heat output, ditital timer heat setting, you can turn sound off or down, easy to mount in wall and hide cord
"I was hesitant to buy this fireplace after reading all the reviews, but I decided to do it anyway because I have seen this fireplace elsewhere for much more- and I usually don’t let strangers dictate what I buy. I also decided to wait a few weeks after getting it to make sure I was happy. Ok, so wow… Amazing effect, super contemporary look and an all around great buy. I put this in the bedroom on the wall. The cord was easy to hide if you have the right tools. The fireplace only sticks out a few inches, super slim.. it heats well, the digital timer is awesome, digital heat, it has a timer, remote, if you don’t like the sound effect you can turn it off or down. The one thing I thought was wrong was the review that said that the fan will not turn off even if the heater is off… but that is true… but, if you look at the flame effect you see that air is creating it and then understand that’s why you can’t turn the fan off even with the heat off. Oh, and the trim is glass not silver like it looks in the picture."

best price for wall mount electric fireplace

Pros: heater blow enough heat for a small room, digital display is likes, shipping is super fast, remote control for all function
Cons: fan always on with or without heat, fan is little loud, sound effect could do without it, wire cord can not hide it
Model Number: bfh5000-um
"i tested this fireplace for an hour, find nothing wrong with it.You could stand 3feet in front and feel the heat coming from fireplace.I mounted this unit on the wall ,it's only 5"deep.Stand made by plastic,it should be more heavier stand.If you mounting on wall,you don't need the stand.Power cord on the left side of the unit .If your plug on the right side, it could be a problem hidding the cord.Ionly have it for one day, can't tell the reliability."

"I don't know what they were thinking but If you don't want heat and just the flame, It blows out cold air and there's no way to turn it off."

Fine Example of a real one

Pros: nice modern look
Cons: noisy blower can't be turned off
Model Number: BFH5000
"We bought the fireplace for Costco just before Christmas. We have used it ever since. It works like a charm, for those that don't like the sound effects, they can be turned down or off. The blower is a bit noisy, but the total effect is superior. My wife and I use it almost every night. The remote is fantastic. Has same controls as the top of the fireplace control panel. We really love this unit. This summer I will build a surround for it. It looks great just hanging on our wall also. Thanks"

Unfortunate timing

Model Number: BFH5000
"Was excited to receive the Bionaire Fireplace heater; great customer service, fast delivery, good looks, everything I expected. For 30 days it functioned as advertised. Too bad it broke down on the 31st day, 10 days before Christmas, during single digit and minus degree weather, leaving mom and small children in the cold."
