Top section of tree only lights halfway. Bethlehem Lights is very hard to contact.. Tree is decorated so I hate to return. Only want new top section.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Tosateacher I expect more
Let me start by saying that this is a beautiful artificial tree. The branches were full, easy to arrange, with nice needles - so Bethlehem Lights got this part right. Now, on to the lights. The idea was great - three "modes" of operation selected via a wired remote. It's the "operation" part that needs work! They came on consistently and reliably for about two weeks. After that, I could never be sure what would happen. Sometimes they came on, then went off. Sometimes they wouldn't come on at all. For a while, I could jostle the fully decorated branches and coax them to come on. Finally, they quit working altogether. It's a pretty expensive item to get just two weeks of expected use, so back it went.

I absolutely love this tree! So easy to set up I was able to do it by myself. Very nice size.
You absolutely will not go wrong if you purchase this. This is the 3rd Bethlehem tree I have purchased. The original I finally gave to my niece due to its size. I just wish they put more lights on the trees.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Pepperell Swift lock was not well constructed - returning
Glad I didn't buy this in July because it has to be returned. I have had good luck with Bethlehem lights in the past but this new Swift lock design seems rather fragile. The tree worked at first and then the middle section would fail intermittently. The middle and bottom sections did not snap together well. I'm requesting a refund and am hoping the company improves the technology for next year. I liked the look of the tree.
Sadly this time it was a gift.
Rated 1 out of 5 by lolmoms Very Disappointed !!!
Bought the tree and put it together easily. You can see through the tree. After a day or two, the lights started going out on everything but the bottom section. I did hear the click when I put it together and it was fine for at least 2-3 days, but off and on with the lights. I am definitely sending it back. I should have trusted the reviews but I thought Bethlehem lights was a good bet. Never again will I buy a tree from QVC! Too many locally that are prettier and no shipping. I paid a lot of money for this tree and it is going back right after I take it down.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Balthazar The Best Tree Ever!!
I have read the negative reviews, and my opinion is that most of them are due to "operator error". You DO have to FIRMLY SET each section in place, and then TURN CLOCKWISE UNTIL IT LOCKS INTO PLACE. if you don't do this, the lights will not turn on because you have not made the electrical points connect. This is not the tree's fault! If you fail to turn each section until the electrical points are lined up and locked into place, the electricity is ;not going to pass into the next section, and no lights will come on. Just take the section out, breath deeply (!) and try it again. The lights will come on brilliantly with very little effort once you get the hang of it. Like anything else in life, once you master how it works, it becomes an easy task and an absolutely gorgeous tree that you will look forward to assembling, year after year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UppercoNana We Are Really Enjoying This Tree
This was our first fake tree.We have always cut down our own.We are in our 60's now and thought we would give this tree a try.We had no problem setting it up.It did have a smell but we put it in our spare room to let it air out and the branches relax.It was just the right size.It fit in the room without moving any furniture.My decorations look really good on it.I love the lights.Especially the morphing mode.I am ready satisfied with this tree so far.
