Rated 2 out of 5 by nydogs LOOKED so lovely on air...
could NOT wait to get this home and when it came, NOT AT ALL as it looked on air. the lights DID NOT WORK, tho trouble shot a few times........nothing. and the branches and tree itself....ZONK. it would have been a lovely tree had it looked or worked anything like shown on air...........i must have watched it shown 3 or 4 times to see what could be wrong with mine....guess i wasn't alone based on reviews here. better luck next year, i have 5 trees in my home during the Christmas season and happy to say i am covered, but the size of this one was just perfect, hence the 2 stars
Rated 1 out of 5 by chelle10 Seriously Disappointed
I bought the 6.5' Hartford Spruce. It was easy to put together because there's nothing to the tree. I paid $299, (special pricing) plus tax & shipping. $350 total. The tree lacks fullness. Fluffing, spacing, and pulling out the branches didn't help. During the live presentation, in October, the host stood behind a tree & was hidden from sight, because the tree branches were so full. That's not the case with the tree I received. There was a definite odor, like the smell of plastic. I am returning it. I wasted my time putting it together.
Rated 1 out of 5 by ICEBIRD Worst purchase ever
My tree arrived today. Not a happy day for me. This tree is not as full as they say on the air but if you recall the studio lights are down very low I think they should have the lights up so you can see the tree better. Not only is it not very full the branches are 2 different colors which makes it look very cheap it also does not have a lot of lights as they say. I can't believe what I paid for this tree it is not worth it at all. Very disappointed I think I will be sending back. Wonder what that will cost me to send back?
Rated 4 out of 5 by dmn STRONG PLASTIC ODOR
BEAUYIFUL TREE . WENT TOGETHER EASILY ONCE WE REALIZED YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO LINE UP THE SLOTS. I HOPE THE ODOR GOES AWAY OR I CAN'T KEEP IT. I TRIED TO FIND OUT FROM QVC AND OLINE WHAT THE TREE WAS MADE OF BUT HAD NO LUCK. I GOT THE 7 1/2 FOOT TREE.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Carolina Soy Pretty good but I have suggestions for improvement
I wanted a slim tree with lights that looked sort of old fashioned and bought this tree in clear and colored lights and in two sizes.
I think Bethlehem Lights is a good company and it was easy to set up.
It does smell and needs to air out a few days.
I bought this since it is more like a Frazier Fir and not a fluffy Scotch Pine type.
I was surprised that the branches are real looking but VERY plastic when you touch them. It was even more surprising that here and there, not too noticeable, are other materials that look like they came from artificial trees made years ago--the materials and the style of pine does not match.
I wish they were on wheels, had a color changing function, had a twinkle function, had a remote, had a foot pedal. IF they last, I think this is a decent price.
They are made so that the branches fall into place--however some fluffing is necessary and is hard to do as the branches are so stiff. I'm not sure if this will be hard to decorate as it is very full for a slim tree which is good for the most part, but the inflexibility has me worried a bit.
I knew I was buying lights that were not LED. They provide instructions and a tool to replace lights (and give you a few replacement lights) if they burn out and say to do this as soon as one burns out. I hope this is easy to do and that the lights last a long time.
So far so good.
