Better than "Fun View TV v. 1" for what it does

"This is a DVD containing 5 short videos, each about 30 minutes long. They are closeups of a two fireplaces (classic and modern), a campfire, a saltwater aquarium, and a lava lamp. The fire and fishtank videos are excellent, in sharp focus and with good, realistic sound quality. There are many active fish in the aquarium, plus some coral and a shrimp. While the DVD is standard def (480i), everything looks pretty good on an HDTV with a quality upconverter in the TV or DVD player. If you want a DVD with fireplaces and an aquarium, this is a good choice.
In comparison to the "Fun View TV v. 1", the fireplaces are similar, and perhaps a little better on this disc. "Fun View" only has one fireplace, equivalent to the "classic" on this disc, and the video of it is only 2 1/2 minutes long. "Fun View" has a single goldfish against a white background instead of an aquarium, and has goofy sound effects instead of the aquarium's realistic pump and filter noises. Both discs have a lava lamp. (I'd have preferred a freshwater aquarium.) This disc is a clear winner over "Fun View" in the "fireplaces and fish" department.
However, "Fun View" does have a lot more variety of TV "screensavers". Most of them are literally computer-style screensavers (zooming starfield, snowscape, etc.), and are literally computer-generated. Many are a static image with a computer-generated foreground (for example, the snowscape is a picture of some snow-covered trees, with computer-generated snowflakes falling in front of the picture). They're well-done, but do look a little fake. There are a couple of oddballs, such as the video of the running microwave. Plus there are seasonal ones, such as a jack-o-lantern with lightning in the background. They might be useful to play as a sort of animated decoration for a party. For variety at the expense of quality, "Fun View" is a reasonable choice.
Since neither is terribly expensive, a third option is to simply get both."
Classy, Quality DVD and Soooo Inexpensive

"This really is head and shoulders above any other Fireplace DVD out there and for the price unbeatable. It even has an aquarium and a great lava lamp that is full screen, not animated and not a filmed round lava lamp, I wonder how they did that? I can't believe that Target, Walmart, costco and all the mass merchants are not selling a million of these. I was looking for one of these in stores before I came to amazon to get it, in the future I am going to save the gas and just come back.
Especially to get a bunch of these as Christmas gifts!"
I'm warmer... I am!

"This is the second fireplace DVD we've purchased. The first was a disappointing thing with horrid music that you couldn't turn off, of which there was no mention on the label. We wanted to have a "crackling" fire, and that's what we got with this Vjworld DVD. We played it during our family Christmas parties, as we do not have a fireplace in our great room. People said they felt warmer when it was on - I thought it was only in my head, so this was confirmation for me that I wasn't going crazy. The fire is mesmerizing, as well as gorgeous and calming. I noticed people just staring into it as the festivities were going on, and several of them asked where we bought it. The aquarium is also beautiful and calming; I'm sure we'll get more use out of it in the warmer months. We watched for quite a while, trying to see where the loop started over, and never did see a repeat.
We enjoy the fire in the evenings while we read - so cozy - all it lacks is the wonderful smell of a wood fire (got a wood-wick candle for this). I wasn't sure that we'd ever use the lava lamp - we are a little past our "groovy" stage, but our baby granddaughter just loved it! Highly recommended."
Great fireplace DVD

"This DVD offers a choice of three different fireplace scenes from which to choose. The fire is very life-like and the sound effects of the fire crackling and popping make it very realistic. The campfire even has the sound of the crickets and tree frogs in the backgound. The fish tank also has the sound of the water pump in the background. The fire burns with a great picture of the flames and logs. If you are looking for a fire place DVD this one offers a varity of choices and great sound effects to go with each one."
