Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Honoria Okay until it broke :(
This umbrella was easy to set up and looked great. It isn't as sturdy as my previous umbrella but I've been satisfied based on the price point. I'm giving 3 stars due to fact that the metal support arms are very weak at the solar light points. After about a month I noticed some warping in these areas. Today I opened it to find one of the supports completely broken and dangling. I wouldn't suggest this product to anyone planning to use it for more than a few months. Quality is definitely lacking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marie Beautiful large umbrella
The umbrella is beautiful and matches the cushions on the chairs perfectly. The crank mechanism seems tight and controlled. The tilt function is a very nice feature to block the sun.

I bought two of these umbrella's two summer's ago and I love them. The colors are as bright now as when I first bought them. They have been through high winds, and hot dry weather, have been knocked over many times and are perfect.
The best I've ever owned and I've own a few. I decided this time to pay a higher price and for the quality I received they were very inexpensive!
I'm getting old and at the rate these are holding up, I expect these are the last ones I will have to buy.
The were delivered to the door..and all I had to do was unwrap and put them in their stands. Perfect. Lots of shade. Today I added a third. Dragon Fruit is a nice deep rich color and offers nice deep restful shade! Yep..happy with my purchase. ! As far as the button to tip being too high, a little stool. works WONDERS!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by COfemalehomeowner Good for price; tilt is challenging
This is my first umbrella, so can't compare it. Have had one week. Does good job keeping the bright sun away. The fabric is solid, not mesh like, so nothing comes through. It is lightweight and was easy for me to lift myself and get it into a bar height patio table. Crank is easy to work to unfold, fold umbrella. I am 5'8" and the tilt is a bit of a challenge. You push in a button and then push the upper portion of the umbrella rod over and then the tilt button locks it in place. But when I tried to untilt it, took a bit of effort. have to position yourself below the tilted side, push in button on rod and then with other arm push up the tilted umbrella until it is straight and locks in place. I can barely manage this at my height. Also this is a small table, if the table was wider I can see it would be an issue and you might need a tall person and/or step ladder. That said, the price was right, the quality seems good and it looks fantastic. I have not experienced high winds yet. It is secured to the table with the inexpensive $29 base and has worked well. Will update if the quality of the umbrella changes over time.

Ordered via internet with store pickup. Item was ready in 15 minutes, but when I got Umbrella home it had obvious signs of being used by someone. Support pole was scratched and had screw marks from being fastened to base. Storage case was frayed and seams were coming apart. Umbrella was in fair condition. Brought item back to store, people at returns counter were nice but because I wanted an exchange I would have to search for new umbrella. Store inventory was all mixed up with some items in poor condition. After searching through many items my wife found the same umbrella in a box in new condition. Got new umbrella home and was very happy with condition and quality.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WesternWilson Beautiful but not durable, alas.
This is a lovely umbrella, we got it in charcoal. But. The lower portion of the pole was weak and bowed slightly almost as soon as we put it up. Just a little so we were happy to live with it. What we did not realize was just how weak the lower portion was...in an unexpected windy spell yesterday it completely crumpled and the umbrella is ruined. Our fault for forgetting to run out and put it down, but the lower pole was too weak and should never, never had folded up like that, even in a wind. Another example of poor offshore manufacturing.

This umbrella looks very nice on our deck and has withstood some pretty high winds before I could get it down.

The only negative is that i had to buy a dowel rod to put in the bottom of the tube in order to attach it to a base. the Umbrella looks great and works well, but no way to attach it to anything other then sticking it down through a table. But i wanted it to be more secure so I put a rod in the tube and screwed it on to a base.
