Dimplex Quintus Opti-Myst Electric Fireplace Entertainment Center

The Quintus Entertainment Center with the Optimal-Myst Electric Fireplace is the number one pick from this list if you must have the MOST REALISTIC electric fireplace. Optics’s-Myst fireplaces use a humidifier to emit a mist of vapor and is illuminated with colored light to give a near perfect flame effect.

Storage is excellent. It has large cabinets flanking the fireplace like most of the others on this list.

Construction is very solid and beefy and the aesthetics are the most modern of the group. This thing is a tank and should last you a very long time. Also, the quality of the Opti-Myst electric fireplace is outstanding.

The cost is stratospheric for this model but you truly get an amazing product when compared to the competition. That said, most will probably prefer the design of other models in this review and be okay with the less realistic electric fireplaces for the cost savings.

SEI Cabrini Entertainment Center with Fireplace

Although the Cabrini scored lowest in this review it’s still an excellent entertainment center with electric fireplace. It really just trails the rest of the group slightly in construction and realistic electric fireplace.

Construction is definitely not a deal breaker. It is a very good product. Realism of the electric fireplace may or may not be important to you. It is on par with the best in storage capacity.

Pricing of this model is an absolute bargain, especially when compared to the Quintus by Dimplex. If this model speaks to you we can whole-heartedly recommend it.

Napoleon “The Shelton” Entertainment Center with Fireplace

“The Shelton” by Napoleon is a gorgeous entertainment center with a very wide electric fireplace. It’s very well constructed and would be a beautiful addition to any home.

It does have 2 downsides worth mentioning. First, storage is somewhat limited. The electric fireplace is unusually wide compared to the others however the console is similar in size so much of what could have been used as storage space is used up by the large electric fireplace opening.

If you have a lot of accessories such as DVD players, cable boxes, streaming media boxes, game consoles, etc. you will be limited. The side storage is more meant for displaying media or knick knacks. It’s not nearly big enough to most electronics.

The other drawback is the lack of remote for controlling the fireplace. This is a very surprising omission at this elevated price point. While it’s not as expensive as the Dimplex it’s more expensive than any of the others.

If these 2 issues are not a problem for you then you’d be purchasing what we consider to be the most attractive electric fireplace tv stand.

Classic Flame Rossville Entertainment Center with Fireplace TV Stand

The Rossville by Classic Flame is a very cleanly designed entertainment console with a nice electric fireplace insert.

There is plenty of storage and construction is very good. The look is very more traditional and utilitarian but very nice.

The price is excellent however it does not come with a remote to control the electric fireplace.

The bottom line on the Classic Flame Rossville is that it is a good solid entertainment console with a good reliable electric fireplace but it isn’t a unique standout in the looks department nor is the electric fireplace particularly compelling. That said, it’s a solid performer at a bargain price with the only real drawback being no remote.

Napoleon Canterbury Entertainment Center with Fireplace TV Stand

The Canterbury by Napoleon is the most traditional looking entertainment center of the group. It’s very attractive and well constructed. The electric fireplace is less realistic than most and it doesn’t put out a tremendous amount of heat compared to the others in this review.

Storage is awesome and it is particularly wide which works well with larger TVs.

It does include a remote and has a very reliable electric fireplace for adding a little heat and charm but don’t count on it for helping you on your heating bill.

If you lean toward more traditional designed furniture and aren’t as concerned with the realism of the electric fireplace or need a lot of heat output it should be an excellent fit at a very competitive price.

In Conclusion: 5 Best – Entertainment Center with Fireplace TV Stand – 2018 Review

The Dimplex Quintus and Napoleon “The Shelton” came out on top of our comparison and not surprisingly they are the most expensive, especially the astronomically priced Quintus.

The Quintus earns its keep due to it’s extremely high quality construction and breathtakingly realistic electric fireplace.

While the Quintus’ main drawback is cost, Napoleons “The Shelton” is the lack of remote which could be a deal breaker for some and a surprise considering is relatively high price point.

All of the entertainment centers in this review come highly recommended however and it’s recommended you review each of their pros and cons for yourself since many of the criteria used for judging these electric fireplace tv stands can be rather subjective. Aesthetics being the biggest one, however some will find that realism is key for them while others may not care about a remote or heat output. Hopefully this review has been informative and given you what you need to make your decision.
