Rated 5 out of 5 by seegee Great Features!
I received this umbrella a couple of weeks ago and am very pleased with everything about it. It took about an hour to read the instructions and assemble the whole thing - longer than the ten minutes the instruction sheet estimated - but all parts were enclosed and could be installed without any problem. I followed the instructions about the solar panel and it's worked perfectly. The umbrella is placed on a long, narrow deck so the 360-degree rotation is excellent - now two seating areas can be shaded without moving the base. Speaking of the base: this deck is in a windy area and I needed to add four bags of playground sand (50 lbs. each) in addition to the water - otherwise the base moved. I bought a funnel (for car oil changes) to pour the sand into the holes and it all worked fine. Very pleased with this product and especially the great price!
Rated 3 out of 5 by moca Difficult to assemble
The final product is beautiful and easy to operate. However, assembly of the base of the umbrella was very difficult. The holes for the large screws did not line up accurately causing repeated attempts to attach the base. Took 2 people to complete the task.
Disappointed in this aspect given the price, but the final product is very nice.

Lights went on once and never worked again!!!! I just got it one day this totally sucks! Could return it but it had missing parts and it's not worth the hassle of taking down and packing it to return it. I should have read the reviews before purchasing it's very expensive for this to happen!!!!

Is a pretty umbrella, but it came damaged and missing parts... I am hoping the vendor sends me a new base and cover otherwise, I would have to return

I could have picked up a similar product and paid half the price at a local store, however the cheaper version only came in one color and I think it may have been just a little to large for my deck. I received it, the color is exactly what I was looking for however the first time the weather would allow me to use it the lights would not come on. The umbrella was in the box for a few days on my deck for less than a week and no lights . The battery died, it's not the kind of battery you can just pick up from a local store, Home Deport Lowes nor Radio Shack carry them; At least not in my area... just a little annoyed
