good one,heated!
Heat added. Bought this fire a few months back when it was 20% off fireplaces so was a real bargain! Looks great and so far works great!
If you have an older generation Samsung or Panasonic plasma TV, a fire effect screen saver will do the same job.

Good Deal - we don't have a fire in our living room (no chimney) so would need a wall hung electric one, but due to layout of furniture, we would prefer a Portrait one, rather than Landscape.

Anyone know of a similar deal on a portrait version?
thanks. heat added!
How much heat do these give off though? I like my living room to be warm always!
I'm tempted but not sure how easy it is to hide the power cord short of actually channelling it into the wall, which sounds like hard work!

Bought one of these through ebay for £94 delivered some time ago.
Looks great but the rotating flicker can be a bit noisy when starting but
it settles down.
Heat settings are 1 or 2 kw.

Has a mains plug. Battery's are just a freebie

(if you watch the video on the web site they mentioned a mains lead)

it looks great sitting here looking at it now

They are a fan-heater principle , blows out of top, angled forwards.
Look ok just lit up with no heat output.
You would have to block off an existing fireplace,say with a wood frame and plasterboard.
The fire hangs by just 2 screws at the top rear edge

should heat a room up with doors shut ,

But then if your in the room anyway , you wouldnt need it on surely ? , as you look hot in your avatar !!
Was looking at this one this morning which is slightly cheaper, but thinking it's best to go with the more well known name and product!

When I bought this fire from B&Q it was called the Hoxton - from china of course.

I think he meant the older gen plasmas generated huge amounts of heat LOL
As an owner of two real fireplaces and a log burner all i can say is LMAO!
An open fireplace sucks lots of warm air up the chimney, air which has to be replaced from outside.
On a very cold day this can easily have a negative effect on the house temps.
I have a log burner in one of my rooms, and they can be more hassle than they are worth !!!

I to one of these earlier in the year when B & Q were doing the 20% easy to fit great price price only need a curved shelf I go over the top.
I have directly under my plasma on the wall and hid the cable behind the plaster
Forgive me if I should know this but I can't see anywhere... does the glass get hot or does the heat just come from the top via the fan/ convector?

Thanks
The glass front is cold as the heat come out of the top, Thats why i an looking for a curved glass shelf
to deflect the heat into the room, I am not sure why thye could not have designed it for the heat to come out of the bottom it would be far for circulation as hot air rises anyway
