Help framing in electrical fireplace

Laura
last month

Hi there
Looking to install the napoleon trivista 60 inch electric fireplace in my upstairs living room. There will be a tv above the fireplace, and it will be backlit. The fireplace itself can be installed with glass edges visible or built in, as shown in the two attached photos of similar fireplaces.
My question is: which fireplace install looks better? I like the look of the exposed/wrap around glass edge but I'm concerned that I would only be able to get a 50 inch tv if installed that way, compared to a 60 inch tv if installed with the drywall frame all around.
Thank you for your time and suggestions in advance! :)
