Electric fireplace with realistic looking fire

I found an old thread but I'm sure things have changed. We planned to remove and rebuild our gas fireplace but due to complications we are thinking of going with an electric fireplace with heat or no heat option. Xtroidinair has some along with Dimplex and other brands. Anyone have any experience with these? We want to go look at some this weekend but different stores carry different brands and are in the opposite direction.

RE: Electric fireplace with realistic looking fire

I bought a higher end Dimplex one. The largest stove we could find was the Celeste - Black enamel. The fireplace looks nice and I like the look of the flame. My biggest complaint is the control box that sits under the stove box has a bright red light that is lit up when in use. Totally destroys the look of a natural looking wood stove. The fan is quiet and does put out supplemental heat, however we mostly purchased it for the warm look it gives the room. You would think they could design an electric wood stove that hid the control box better.

RE: Electric fireplace with realistic looking fire

Some electric wall mounted fireplaces have really nice, realistic looking virtual fires, but others look more like a couple candles sitting next to each other. I ended up going with one of the Touchstone models, as I feel these are a solid choice and I am very satisfied with mine. I bought my wall mounted electric fireplace here.
