Bethlehem Lights 7.5' Frasier Fir Christmas Tree w/Instant Power
Warranty is useless - buyer beware!
The tree I purchased is no longer available but this is similar to it. The five year warranty that QVC promotes for Bethlehem Lights has proven to be worthless. One year after receiving my tree, the lights are not working properly. So far, I received the runaround from Bethlehem Lights (unresponsive to calls/e-mail for several weeks then a broken promise to send replacement lights) and no support/assistance from QVC as the return period expired. Though I liked the tree when it was working properly, ~$300 for one season of use before it malfunctioned is disappointing and frustrating. The tree that QVC sold me & the warranty Bethlehem Lights has not honored does not promote quality, convenience, or value.
I love this tree !!! Awesome
I don't understand all the bad reviews on this tree. Yes it's a more narrow tree but I actually went by the measurements listed, measured my spot at home, and it was true to size. I'm very sensitive to smells and didn't notice any real problem other than something new out of the box that needed an airing out. Nothing that lingered more than a few hours. It's got a mixture of plastic and silk tips, that's what gives it a more three dimensional look. I LOVE this tree. It went up quick and easy . Nice amount of bulbs. I have it in a window in my living room and it looks fabulous from the sidewalk at night. Nice and bright. Very pleased with this purchase. My husband loved the easy set up, and commented on the clever way the tree plugs in to itself. Next time people.... look at the measurements listed and then use those to measure your spot at home, that way it won't be a surprise. We go all out on decor for the holidays, inside and out , and I'm pretty picky.
Tree is very easy to set up but that is the only good thing about the tree. It is so slim!! I hate to see the ones that are sold as slims. Also, terrible smell and quality of branches is cheap. I'm returning this item, Bethlehem Lights quality has gone downhill.
I don't understand the negative reviews the tree is quite full. It is not the slim tree I thought it was going to be, however, it fits nicely in the corner of my sunroom. The only thing I did t like was the way it goes together it piece plugs into the other and you have to make sure it's lined up. I do think it will be a little difficult to take down, but other than that it's a lovely tree. I have two trees in my home one in the formal living room and this one in the sunroom.
Putting the tree together was not as easy as shown on tv. The tree is very heavy even for a strong person like myself and you must have the tree section in a very precise place for connection. My sections were labeled A,C,C instead of A,B,C. There is a bad odor but it is slowly going away. The base does seem a little flimsy for the heavy tree but my biggest complaint is the electrical cord. It is way too short and for the price of the tree (431.00) you would think they would add a foot pedal for easy on/off. Just for this reason the tree may be going back. It is beautiful now that it is decorated but was disappointed with the overall purchase.
POOR QUALITY AND SMELLS AWFUL!!!!!!!
Purchased this as it appeared nice on TV and online...... Stand missing foot and the tree had a simply terrible stink to it. The over all appearance was shoddy. As well as the lights had far too many yellow and orange bulbs which muted the green/blue/red bulbs. Not what I have come to expect from QVC.
the perfect tree for me
Last years mr Christmas tree went out half way through Christmas, had to return (great return policy qvc has) the Behtleham lights tree I had 5 years ago went out.....under warrnety....qvc came through again....so, this year I ordered early and got the blue spruce Lisa Robertson raved about.....defective!! ugh...return last week!! So, I ordered this tree in the clear lights....the video says they are led...they are not, they are incasdesent and has the traditional lighting affect....yay!!! I needed a tree to fit in a corner. I cant have a huge bottom.....I also don't like the slim trees, to skinny.....this is perfect.....perfect!!! Now, if you want a standard FULL size big tree, don't get this...if you want between a standard and a slim tree, this is it.....I LOVE this tree, in fact, Im glad the blue spruce was defective. QVC stands behind theier trees, besides packing up the pain of shipping back, at least they do what they promised. This is full, perfect lights.....it is very heavy tho.....but that means its quality and thick and lush.....Great wonderful tree for me. I think those who gave this such a bad review because it wasn't the size they wanted gave this tree a disservice....they should have read the circumfrance size like I did before they purchased. Its not the tree's fault, its the consumer who doesn't read the description. You wont be sorry if you want what I stated above.....
NOT FOR MY HOME.
THIS TREE WAS SUCH A DISAPPOINTEMENT. THIS IS NOT BETHLEHEM LIGHTS QUALITY. THE INSTANT POWER WAS GREAT BUT THE SHAPE WAS TOO SLIM. IT SHOULD BE SOLD AS A SLIM TREE BUT ISNT.
Not a Keeper!!
I was very excited about this tree until I received it and set it up. #1..it is a very, very narrow tree. #2.the very top portion of the bottom section would light for a while then go out. Very shoddy construction. Bethlehem Lights has always been a favorite of mine until now. The tree is on the porch, waiting for the UPS driver to pick-up.
I waited to get a Bethlehem Lights Christmas tree because everything else that I have ever ordered from them was impressive. Well, not so in this case. The tree is way too slim!!! Not suitable for my primary tree. If you need a tree for a smaller area, this is your tree. I gave it 2 stars for ease of set up only. The tree that this one was supposed to replace is a nine year old Bethlehem lights pre-lit with option of either all clear or multi colored lights with a remote control! For the money, I think Bethlehem Lights can do better. This tree is going back.
A Pretty Good Deal
We pre-set it up & I can pass along the following information:
-Lights are plentiful. I don't like a tree that has too many lights, so this one is just right!
-There are many tips for hanging ornaments. Plastic molded ones give fullness to branches.
-The width is not full, nor is it narrow. We measured it at the center of the tree [2 1/2'] and the base [4']
-The tree has an odor. Let it air out before the season so your living room doesn't stink.
-The stand is cheaply made/designed. Tree is wobbly and required way more adjustment than should've been necessary.
-Easy to assemble, but you knew that!
-Branches do not fall down gracefully on first attempt and do require some (though limited) shaping.
-CORD IS TOO SHORT!
-Overall, the tree is beautiful, better suited to someone who has a smaller dimension to fill.
