Well on the list this year I just added one of the electric fireplaces. I'm looking to use it to replace our current entertainment center. Our current stand is one with the flat screen mount on it and I like the nice clean look. I'm going to need one of the media fireplaces large enough to house a 50" t.v..
I haven't really researched these in the past as I wasn't in the market but I am unsure if there are deals on these during BF or not. I did browse a few of last years ads and saw Walmart had one in their sale for $249. Since the BF sales usually have items they don't normally carry I couldn't find what the normal price was to see if it was even a big discount. Hopefully someone on the boards has either purchased one or knows a good place to look for a deal.
Also if you already own one are there any drawbacks, like having the electronics near the heat, or brands to stay away from.
