H192640 - Bethlehem Lights Batt.Op. 3ft. Scottsdale StakeTree w/Timer
Too few lights - only average materials
This is a cute tree, nice size and shape. The materials in the tree itself, however, are not of the quality I've come to expect from Bethlehem lights. But the problem that will keep me from buying this again is that the tree needs at least a third again as many lights as it comes pre-wired with -- it is just plain dim, with significant areas having no lights at all. To make it what it should be, I would need to add another string of lights..........kind of defeats the purpose of ordering a professionally wired pre-lit battery operated tree, doesn't it?
I am using the tree and won't return it, but every time I look at it, I"m disappointed.
Pretty shaped tree but
about one third of the lights don't work at all and after about 3 hours on the twinkle mode, they all go off. I have to wiggle the switch on the battery box to get them to come back on. It's a pain! I excepted more from Bethlehem Lights. I put more lights on the tree and will keep it but I will check reviews before I buy anything else from Bethlehem Lights.
cute tree, HOWEVER.. wired wrong... top does not connect to the bottom.... so this will have to go back...
love these trees
Although I hesitated to order after reading some of the reviews, I am so happy I did.. These trees are amazing. They are sturdy, lifelike and the lights are beautiful.
In fact, I keep ordering more. It is so pleasant not to have electrical cords, the option of blinking or constant and on a timer. The battery department does have to hold 4 c size batteries but it easily tucked away. It opens easily but of course if you are using gorilla force, the clasp will break. I am looking forward to enjoying thesewonderful trees for many years.
I originally bought one back in July. And I'm back to order 2 more! The tree is very full and healthy looking. And the lights are incredibly bright! I bought it in the clear and would love to pick up the multi colored one, next year.
I bought these last year to set out in pots on either side of my garage. The trees look very nice but the lights were not near as bright as I thought they would be. The battery box is soooo heavy and obtrusive that it's hard to set the tree in pots without seeing the battery boxes. The lid on one of the battery boxes broke the very first time I put the battery in it. So, I had to duct tape it shut. I got them out a few weeks ago to spruce them up for this holiday season, change the batteries, etc. and now the lid on the battery holder won't even close with duct tape...so no lights on that tree. So disappointed.
I couldn't be happier! I recently became disabled and had almost given up on the idea of being able to have a Christmas tree this year. Then I saw the Christmas in July programs on QVC and the larger Bethlehem battery operated trees. I marveled at their beauty. Through viewing those trees I learned of the 3' stake tree. i ordered it because I knew this was a tree I could decorate easily and having the tree prelit was such a plus! When I received it I was totally amazed. I have never seen such a full tree for its size. The ease of set up is just right for me. I am going to order the urn for the tree that has the special fitting for the stake.
I will now be able to have a beautiful Christmas tree this year!
NOT Bethlehem Lights usual quality
Received the tree yesterday; I put it together today and am very disappointed in the quality. The lights are very tiny and are only red, blue and green. They don't twinkle when you set it on twinkle, only the red and blue flash. Bethlehem lights products are usually much better than this tree. The previous tree I purchased is much better quality, has larger lights and more colors to it. This one is going back right away.
This tree was smaller than I thought, and 3 lights near the top did not work. However the lights are bright and it will be good outside near the front steps. I will keep it, even though three lights do not work. That is a disappointment, where is quality control with the tree, every light should work since I am paying for it. I look forward to it at christmas however, it will be cute!
SAVE A TREE ALWAYS BOUGHT A LIVE TREE BEFORE
I find this really suits my needs. I had cut back to a 3 ft tree and this is just perfect.
The quality of the tree is very good very realistic. I am happy with the purchase
nice - but
We already have these trees. The lights are dim and cold. Do not show up well outside when lit. I'm sending these back. I thought they had put brighter lights on them. So disappointed.
