The following positive comments about the fireplace are summaries from real customer reviews:
- “This is a great looking fireplace”
- “It has very realistic flames”
- “Installation was really simple”
- “This is an affordable fireplace”
There were a lot of customers who thought that the fireplace really looked great in their rooms and one person described it as “the greatest fireplace”. Others described it as “perfect” and a lot said that it looked “beautiful” and “very stylish.
People in general were very pleased with the flame effects and the different settings that could be used. Many reported that the fireplace provided a very nice ambience and others said that the flames were “mesmerizing”. There is lot more ability to vary the different flame ‘looks’ of this fireplace. A number of different special lighting effects are available,
“Installation was really simple” – many customers were happy with the assembly and installation of the fireplace. One customer described the assembly instructions as “the best ever” and a few said that the unit couldn’t have been easier to install. If you are wall mounting it by hanging it, it is just like hanging a heavy picturem easy peasey. To flush mount it you have to cut a hole in your wall so a little more skill is needed. Don’t forget it comes with a stand so you can set it anywhere.
“The heat output is impressive” – a lot of people complimented the output of the heater. Although it is described as providing supplemental heat, a lot of people used the fireplace as a primary heat source and were very satisfied with the amount of heat produced. There were a few comments about it heating rooms quickly. This infrared heter is better than most standard electric fir place heaters that simply use hot air.
There were also favorable comments about it being a good value and at a good price point.
Cons Of The SEI Tennyson Electric Fireplace
The following negative comments about the fireplace are summaries from real customer reviews:
- “The flames just don’t look real”
- “Heat output is pretty minimal”
- “The fireplace was damaged when it arrived”
“The flames just don’t look real” – one customer thought that the flame effects didn’t look real and another said that they were not natural looking. We have pointed out several times this is a modern fireplace with different flame colors and lighting options. Most other fireplaces are just going for 1 look a natural look. So if you are strictly looking to duplicate ‘real’ fire this may not ne the best choice for you. Kind of like buying a casual suit and then complaining iys not formal enough for you. Frankly, we love the versatility and different effects as do most buyers.This ‘realism’ criticism was contrary to the majority view and any artificial flame effects are going to be criticized by a few people.
“Heat output is pretty minimal” – there were a handful of customers who were not impressed by the heat output of this fireplace. One said that there was hardly any heat at all and another that it would not heat a big room. There could have been a problem with the fireplace that produced little heat and this should have been returned. It is designed for supplemental heat and most of the customers were happy with the heat output so this is not a major issue.“The fireplace was damaged when it arrived” – one person experienced damage to the unit when it was received. This can happen when delicate units are shipped and the fireplace can be returned for a new one. that’s the beauty of shopping with Amazon.
