Likes: I've had the insert now about 2 months. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I've not had a wood insert or stove before, so not a ton to compare to... but this thing burns great, looks nice, blower blows pretty hard, air wash works better than expected.... once it gets going hardly any smoke.

Dislikes: The blower does not turn on until the top of the stove is like 400-500 degrees. I wish it came on sooner.

Comments: The fireplace is too small to heat 2700 sq ft. I went into the purchase knowning that. but does ok. I put my house fan on and it pulls the heat throughout the house. My gas bill (I have a gas furnace) went down 30% and I just burn at nights and on weekends. As an aside I am going through a lot more wood than I expected (about 1/2 cord every 6 weeks).
