Default gas fireplace insert

Anybody have a gas fireplace insert installed in their wood burning fireplace
and are not happy with it?
If so, why not?

TIA

Thanks, this was an eye-opener.

It seems we looked at the last option because we're going to be out several kilobucks, but we will look at two more showrooms.

Some flames looked artificial, some looked realistic, some looked realistic and very restful (they didn't flicker much). Most looked yellow but one looked mostly blue.

They'll have to run a line about 20' under a slab or go on the outside of the house.

We called 17 places and I hope we end up with at least five bids.
