Here we have another fireplace TV console from WE Furniture, and this one comes with an interesting twist. Namely, it is made for fitting in a corner of a room and this makes its design quite different from the rest of the products we have on this list. This is refreshing as the appearance of these types of TV stands/consoles can get rather repetitive after a while, and they may not satisfy somebody who is looking for that unique piece of furniture to match his/her own originality.
This product is made of high-grade MDF and laminate and comes in black, espresso, white oak, rustic oak, and traditional brown. The corner design, apart from making it able to fit into corners of rooms, also saves a decent amount of space. The solid build of the thing ensures that it can support up to 250 lbs. of weight, which is good because there are is shelving available, sealed by glass panes, which you can use for your DVDs and… well, you know by now. And, of course, it includes an electric fireplace insert.
Speaking of that insert, people have complained of it not seeming that realistic. This is a fair criticism of a lot of these fireplace TV consoles. It is not easy to authentically replicate the warmth and appearance of fire, and an electric insert will never be the same as actually lighting a couple of logs on fire.
Same goes for the way the heat spreads from these things. Some customers have complained about this one, in particular, being too slow and weak when it comes to heating. A more powerful fan was suggested to help, but for now, it is what it is. Another worrying thing is that the insert has been known to make strange and slightly concerning noises when working, so this should also be taken into account when making your purchase.
Another thing, just like with the last product on this list, that has made the comments and reviews section a few times is the shipping and assembly issues. It does not take too long to assemble (people report taking an hour or two), but you might come across issues regarding missing parts. Luckily, both Amazon and the manufacturer are quite glad to assist you in the event of this happening.
Although it might seem that we have listed a lot of issues and complaints in this review, this is only so that you are aware of their existence. No product is perfect and this one is no exception. However, there are many more people who are splendidly pleased with this TV console than those who are disappointed.
People love the way it fits into the corners of their rooms and there have been few problems fitting TVs on it. It is a great option for anyone looking for an interesting twist on the traditional fireplace TV stand/console formula.
