Dimplex XLF50 Likes: 

  • slim profile — only 16″ high, 6″ deep
  • low-profile heat vent
  • realistic yellow flame colour
  • complex LED lighting colour combinations under the crystals
  • minimal black frame
  • multi-function remote with thermostat control,
  • ability to connect to 120 volt or 240 volt
  • optional driftwood kit

Dimplex XLF50 Dislikes:

  • flame can be repetitive
  • driftwood kit for 100″ unit is 2 of the 50″ kits — shapes repeat themselves
  • sizes jump from 50″ to 74″ to 100″ — need a 60″ option, possibly a 80″ option

Overall Rating:

  • 4 out of 5

We like this model best with the optional driftwood kit, which helps to mitigate the repetitiveness of the flame effect. The LED coloured lights are outstanding.
