Southern Casual 10' Round Solar Offset Umbrella w/ Base
What a delightful umbrella!!
I asked my son to assemble this umbrella and as I watched him I realized I could of done it, it was so easy. I read some reviews that weren't so kind and did not find those problems at all. It went up so easy, and it works so easy even for an elderly lady like myself. I just enjoy it so much. Everything works on it, no problems what so ever.
I did put 4, 50lbs sand bags in the base instead of water. Water sometimes meldews,this umbrella stand is not going any where with 200 lbs of sand bags anchoring it down.
Save your money
This will be the third time I have tried to write a review ..... not sure what I have said that others have not ..... Save your money not worth it ....we bought this in Feb 2012 by time we could use it well past the 30 days ...umbrellla solar light would never stay in place would hang down... sun bleached horrible in 3 months. Went to the curb at the end of the summer 2012
Worst Product Ever
Save your money, The water bladder lasted for a few weeks. Took about a month for the replacement, which immediately leaked. Used flower pots and rocks in the base area insead of water bladder. Red umbrella faded. Can't use in a wind of over 5 miles per hour. Acts like a parachute. Finally gave away and had a pergola installed.
NOT THE BEST
Purchased this last spring - the based UV'd out by the end of the summer and would not hold water - called the company since it was past 30 days - the company was not very helpful at all, basically got told that they were surprised that I expected the base to last more than one summer. The umbrella part is great - now I need to find a different base for it. Certainly won't be purchasing anything else from this company - expected better customer service - guess I must be comparing their customer service to QVC's which can't be beat. Expensive lesson
Base Is Worthlessness
Umbrella was great but the base is a joke. Is a plastic water bag. Had for a month and bag no longer holds water. No Way am I going to buy a replacement after spending 200 dollars. Really think of something better. I work too hard for my money
Worst product I have ever purchased since QVC opened. It fell apart in the crank housing before I got it paid for. No box to send it back.....stuck! Very dissappointed!
Not up to qvc standards!!!
Not the best qvc has had in the past!!!!!and my center light will not work!!!!!I see where another customer had the same problem!!!! what gives????and does cus ser look at these reviews????If so...what do they do about it?
I like the umbrella but....
My neighbor purchased this umbrella a few months ago so I was excited to get mine. I love it but my center "light" doesn't work!!! :( It's too much of a hassle to send back so we are keeping it and the small lights work so that is fine with us. We may play around with it and see if maybe the center light just isn't hooked up right. I LOVE the umbrella but had to give it 4 stars since that middle section isn't working ;(
Excellent Purchase! Great value!
We're so happy to have this umbrella. After pricing them and comparing features for a year we finally took the leap with this one. Easy pay pushed us over the edge. Assembly was easy. It's very easy to operate and gives wonderful shade in the day and very bright light at night. Feels sturdy and well constructed. We've had it for over a month with no problems whatsoever.
Problem Is With The Base
I really like the umbrella but the base doesn't hold it properly. The base leaks and is very poorly made. I called and complained about the base. I would not order this product again.
THE QUALITY OF THIS ITEM IS VERY POOR. HAVE ONLY USED THE MONTH OF JUNE, ONLY ON WEEKENDS. DURING THE WEEK UMBRELLA IS CRANKED DOWN AND COVERED .PUT THE UMBRELLA UP AND NOW WILL NOT CRANK DOWN, EVIDENTLY THE CHEAP ROPE THAT WAS USED HAS EITHER COME OFF OF THE PULLEY OR OUTER COVER OF ROPE HAS BALLED UP. AM VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS PRODUCT NOT THE USUAL QUALITY OF QVC. DO NOT HAVE THE BOX ITEM WAS SHIPPED IN AND CANNOT FIND ONE , SO NOW I AM STUCK WITH THIS HALF OPEN UMBRELLA.
Cheep Quality. Falls apart .No Replacement Parts!!
Looks great on TV but when i got the umbrella home and opened it the very first time, one arm rivet fell out and i had to hunt down a replacement screw from hardware store as factory has NO parts available! Since then most all rivets that hold arms up fell out. Very unhappy. Very poor quality. sending back for full refund. what a hassle and a heart break
