Remote Controlled 9' Olefin Market Umbrella w/Solar Lights
Absolutely beautiful. Works beautifully. Night lights enhance it. However, as indicated. In description , cover didn't come with it. QVC is checking on this error. Still waiting. Other than that - a must have.
Worst Purchasae Ever
Purchased this umbrella in March 2013, used fiver times in 2013 and this year 2014 used twice. Need to replace battery, contacted manufacture battery not available until September 2014. Purchaased umbrella for 259.00. Worst investment..
I LOVE THIS
I am so glad I purchased this umbrella. I am not sure why some of the negative posts. If you follow the directions for installation you should not have a problem. I use this all the time. The lights are just enough on our deck.
Love this umbrella--I got the hunter green and it is rich in color. Love the solar powered lights and ability to put up or put down the umbrella with no cranking....so convenient. It looks great at night with the lights on and everyone thinks it is great looking. There is only one option I would add to this umbrella and that would be tilt ability....other than that it is just what the doctor ordered!!!! Definitely recommend!!!
when I received this umbrella I was so delighted, it was even better than the hosts described it. Easy to put up and use. I live in the desert southwest where we have had some 112 degree days and strong winds and the umbrella stood up though all that beautifully. I would definitely love to buy another when QVC get beige ones back. This umbrella has become the crown jewel of my garden, love the way it lights up at night.
My friends have given me so many compliments on it.
I purchased two of these umbrellas. I loved them, they are super cute and I got lots of compliments from friends. Today one of the umbrellas broke. It was 96 degrees and it appears like glue melted and now the top segment is no longer attached. The other umbrella seems fine. I no longer have the box and don't know how can return it.
LOVE THIS UMBRELLA!!!!!!
I read some other reviews. One in particular I would like to address. I rarely read instructions and if I had this problem would haven't occurred. The umbrella went up with the remote but didn't go down. It went down on the base. I changed batteries and still nothing. Then I saw the red light on the top if the umbrella and realized that the remote had to be pointing at that light. Now everything works great. This is my 2nd solar umbrella with lights but this one is much brighter and has a remote!! I LOVE this umbrella!!! It makes my outdoors amazing!! Thank you!!!
Purchased this as a Fathers Day gift last summer. LOVED it and worked like a charm. Put in the garage for the winter and now it's a dud. Ordered a replacement cord (misplaced ours# to recharge and nothing. Also, the on / off switch broke! Grrrrrrrrr. Wasted $$$ down the drain. Very disappointed! It is really awesome....when it worked! We loved loved loved the lights at night. But it's lights out for this product :# Will attempt to call this company, but since just slightly over a year since bought, not very hopeful.
Sorry I ordered it!!!
We purchased this umbrella and were real anxious to get it. My husband drilled the base to our deck. So far so good. The first wind storm that came totally tore it off the bass and it was bent. Totally not useable anymore. I saved the umbrella part and put it on my picnic table in the yard. The rest of everything went to the dump. I wasted a lot of money on this and was very disappointed in the set. My husband was very upset wth me for ordering it in the first place. I would not recommend this to anyone. Sorry!!!
My Backyard Spaceship
Coolest thing ever! At night it looks like a spaceship has landed in your yard. Quality so far is great. It seems to be standing up well to Florida's harsh weather. Light is perfect. Just bright enough to see at night but not bright enough to attract bugs. Friends and family are amazed at how it raises and lowers automatically. It has become a conversation centerpiece for all who sit at our table. I could not get the remote to work, will try a new battery, but really don't need it. The buttons are right there anyway. I am thinking about purchasing another one to replace this one when it dies down the road because I use it every night and would be lost without it. Just remember to fully charge using adapter cord BEFORE first use. That has been the only time I have had to charge it with the adapter. Even on cloudy days, it recharges fine.
i recieved the umbrella. The lights and remote don't work. the only way to open it is to manually push it up. I'm really surprised that QVC continues to sell this product when it clearly doesn't work. Very poor quality.
Works for me!
This umbrella has done a good job so far. I have had it since January. I live in Florida at the coast, so it takes a beating with brutal sun, daily thundershowers and gusty winds. You have to give the remote some time to work. Hold the button down for several seconds. Also, it must be exposed to bright sunlight every day in order to work. I bought a cheapie umbrella ($49) at a big box store around the same time I bought this. The cheapie has already bit the dust and gone to the trash pile
Everyone who visits marvels that you can open and close this one with the remote.It is the only one I have seen.
