Remote Controlled 9' Olefin Market Umbrella w/Solar Lights
Ghost in control?
We purchased the umbrella last spring and it has worked consistently. However, I often discovered the umbrella open at unusual times and the lights on when we had not turned them on. So, must be a problem in the remote or a ghost on the deck. I thought the reduced price was a good buy. I didn't notice until after we put it up that it does not tilt which is an important option when using in the hot summer and the shade is not over the table. . My advise is to make a list of the important options to your needs, read the reviews of several choices, and make an informed decision.
Beautiful,easy and practical
I am so happy I bought this umbrella. I would love to sit outside on my deck in the summer and have lunch and invite friends to join me. However, I use to have so much trouble trying to push my old style umbrella up and down and when the wind was blowing and it started raining hard I would get soaked by the time I could get it back down. Not with my new umbrella it is remote controlled. I just push a button and the umbrella goes up and push another button when I want it to go down. Plus I could run in the house if an unexpected storm came up because you could use the remote from inside the house. Another feature which I loved is that the inside is full of lights for night time use, also turned on with just the touch of a button. Yes, we got a lot of use out of this new umbrella and would highly recommended it to all.
Worst product I ever purchased from QVC
After 2 weeks of minimum use the remote no longer worked. Then the charge wasn't holding. Plugged in and the light frequency that was supposed to show it was fully charged never worked. Late that summer I got ill and my sons packed up the umbrella for winter
I took it out following summer and the motor was loud, it took 20 minutes playing with the buttons on pole to get umbrella up, then I couldn't get it down.
Very frustrating and unfortunate as it's a nice looking umbrella and looked forward to using it for quite a few summers at least.
I wish I would have read the reviews. The thing never worked consistently and now six months later doesn't work at all. The Umbrella was stuck up so my husband who is an engineer took the box apart and relays are not working. He was able to get it down and sent an email to the company asking for a new bracket. Don't buy it
worse purchase so far.
After charging, umbrella worked the first month. After that, inconsistent with operating. ie. some times the remote would work, other times not. Some times the main unit would work then next time would not.
The umbrella would go up in increments and stop preventing electronic return.
I was actually unable to bring umbrella down when the storm hit and guess what, the umbrella blew over and broke.
this was an expensive mistake on my part.

Was pleased with this when we first got it but that faded fast. First the remote would not work but they did send up a new one right away. Things worked ok for a while but then one night the umbrella opened up all by itself, finally found out that it was our TV remote would make it open. Now nothing works and we are stuck with it in open position and the lights won't work either plus we cannot find the plug it came with. Overall not worth the money
Not Worth Purchasing
It worked only a few times. I would not recommend purchasing. Also heavy and too much trouble to return.
i have 6
they are fab. our summers are hot and every other umbrella fade. these made it thru the summer and are gorgeous. the lights illuminate my entire pool area. wish I could get another one
Worst Thing I Have Ever Bought At QVC
I bought this for my husband's birthday and he loved it,but it only worked two times. The remote control never worked again. I called sent it back my husband was disappointed so we asked
for a replacement. When we got the next one it was like they put another broken one even worse on the shelf and sent it to us. This time the on and off switch was broke off and the remote was not included. Very Disappointing.
Best umbrella ever!
I am buying a second one of this umbrella before it's gone!
easy set uo
wow I like it very much....... I wish i woukd come with the stand though
I love this and was happy to see everyone loves it also that we have over to hang out and when we get to use the lights it's awesome to see them surprised how well it lights up at night. I the only problem is the remote doesn't work bought new battery and still doesn't work.
