Bought in 2009 , Price Paid: 2995
Location : Syracuse, NY 13201,
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Clearview

Likes: Highest overall efficiency and quality
Beautiful Stove- received many compliments from others.


Dislikes: Bay Windows turn black unless burn only high temp.
but actually don\'t look bad. we don\'t bother to clean as the blackend windows blend in.

Comments: I researched inserts extensivly before purchase.
QuadraFire was the clear overall winner. Burn times can be controlled as advertised. Incredibly clean burns even when fully closed. virtually no smoke from liner.
every part of stove is high end. Even blower blends in with overall stove perfectly. Sold steel and nickel plated looks great.
Blower is very powerful. We only run on 1/4 power.
Overall, there is not a \"Chincy\" part of the stove.
