I've never been too big on them, I think they look a bit tacky.

I think they can look nice, but they often are paired up with tacky mantels that do not fit in with the rest of the room. My last apartment had a really good one, but it was set in the wall.

The electric plug-in ones you get that just sit along the wall never look right. I've seen many actual fireplaces retrofitted with electric units that run on gas and they are quite nice and convenient.
