I'm writing this review because of how helpful I found other reviews before buying this fireplace. I did my homework, reading some 150+ reviews and watching Youtube videos of people's Dimplex fireplaces, before deciding on this model and it paid off! This is probably the best electric fireplace out there for the money (if there's a better one I can't afford it anyway!) I very happy with it and everyone who comes to my house thinks it looks very real (they all knew I bought a fake one so I'm still waiting to "fool" someone who doesn't know!) [...] The fireplace flames look as real as you can get, I swear sometimes you think you hear crackling! It does make a slight whirring kind of sound (motor?) but you can only hear it in a quiet room (no TV, etc) and only if you're really listening for it. But it is an electric product so I guess you can expect SOME kind of sound to come from it! Like I said, it's very faint.Overall, I'm very pleased. I used to use about 10 candles in my fake fireplace and always worried I'd start the house on fire and had to deal with dripping, etc. so it's nice not to have that worry anymore! The logs look very realistic (this model has the ceramic logs, not the styrofoam ones) and I don't know how they do it but it's pretty cool the way they make the flames (there's nothing you can "stick your hand in to see if it's real", it's done with a mirror somehow). Plus, don't be put off by other reviews that say they don't like the "half moon" effect on the background. I was worried about that but when I got it, it looked perfectly realistic to me! I've tried the heater to make sure it works, but it's still hot in Florida so I won't be using it for a while! But it seems to work great, I just can't tell you how well it heats up a room at this point because it's not cold outside!I checked out the fireplaces at the home stores and their flames looked so fakey compared to this one's and they were the same price or more. So trust me, I did my homework and researched to get the best at the best price, so you can trust my review!
Brightens up the living room

All in all, I'm happy with the Dimplex 23" electric fireplace insert. It cheers up our home with a flick of a switch and looks nice. A friend said the insert looks too perfect to be real, but it's probably as good as it gets for an electric insert. The flame does look real to me. In our area there are so many "spare the air days" when it is illegal to burn wood and I'd just as soon have the look without the bother anyway.
HOT Deal !!!
William from Havertown, PA– Verified Buyer
Wow, I am pleasantly surprised with this purchase. First, the price is by far the best I found. Next, this fireplace insert is dramatically realistic with it's flame effect including the logs which have a subtle dim and brighten effect like a real fire. The height of the flames is also surprisingly generous. The heater is quiet with two heat output settings. Setup is a breeze as you just plug it in and enjoy. The remote is just an on / off but really that's all you need for convenience. The most important things are quality and realism of fire that far exceed the price. This unit gets 5 stars without hesitation..
Love it !!

My wife and I have lived in this house for 35 years. When we first moved in we used the fireplace, which is located in the family room only a few times. The room just got too hot with a live fire, plus cleaning up the ashes afterward wasnt any fun either. So we stopped using the fireplace completely. Over the next 34 years it just sat there looking like a big black hole in the wall. We thought about putting in a gas line and gas logs, but we were afraid the room would still get too warm, and that it would be a waste of money. Since we purchased the Dimplex electric insert, our fireplace is on every night. We use it with the heat turned off. The flickering flames and the glowing embers look so real. It has provided us with the ambiance weve been missing for 35 years. We just love it!
Electraflame 5Star !!!
Donald from Rochester, NY– Verified Buyer
Purchase of the Electraflame 23" is aptly named as a "delux fireplace inset" !!! It has the glow and 'flaming' appearance of actual wood burning logs - Five Star satisfaction from Deliver & Look & Operation; order to delivery was completed within five days and set-up installation was very simple, just plug it in! This Electraflame replaced an existing wood burning fireplace in a rental unit where safety and upscale appearance are primary considerations!

I've been looking for a fireplace for a very long time. U could not do a gas insert because of how old my house was and the fire hazard. This was a great substitute. Makes the cold days somewhat enjoyable!
Nice for the price.
Reese from Clermont, FL– Verified Buyer
Works well for my situation in a weekly vacation rental. Easy to set up. We had to remove the flu handle which only took my husband a few minutes. Since we were already doing renovations it was easy to have a plug put inside our fire box.
Terri from Greensboro, NC– Verified Buyer
Love it. Looks so real. Was a tight fit into my fireplace because of the leveling feet on the bottom. Had to take them completely off to get them into the fireplace. Now need to find a way to get them back on because of the needed ventilation. But the overall product is great.
Dimplex fireplace insert
Lois from Carmel, IN– Verified Buyer
Really enjoying it. Remote could have been better if it had heater on it too, and would have liked logs to be a bit wider.
Realistic Fireplace insert!
J-reader from Jersey City, NJ– Verified Buyer
Very easy to set up with a very functional remote control. Replacement bulbs are very easy to install. Overall it is an outstanding substitute for a real fire. Everyone who has seen it has been impressed and commented about it. The heat has two settings (low and high) and blows out of the vent located above the "live flame" screen. You can also run the fireplace simply for decorative purposes with the heat turned off. Overall i give it an A+ for its decorative and realistic qualities. I also give it an A+ a optional zone heating source.
