Bought in 2004 , Price Paid: $1,150
Location : Burlington, NJ 8016, Burl
Purchased from: Mail Order/Internet Retailer - www.buy-fireplaces.com

Likes: Very easy to start fire and operate.
Glass remains very clean though out burning cycle.
Design enable low clearance to combustibles

Dislikes: only draw back so far... Small fire box

Comments: This is a great stove! It really work well when clearance to combustibles is an issue. The stove is designed to radiate most of the heat out the top and front.
I was able to install my stove in a corner configuration with the corners only being 6 inches from the wall. According to the manufacture spec's, I could have gone as close to 2" from combustibles (in a corner installation) with the use of a double wall stove pipe.

Napoleon stove... Great craftsmanship! Would highly recommend
