Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JenR Make sure you get the right one!
I have wanted this set since the beginning of last summer, but was frightened off by the horrible reviews about rust problems. Since we are about to built a new PVC wrapped composite deck, I wanted to make sure it won't be ruined after the first rainstorm. I was surprised that Home Depot would still be selling this set after all the terrible reviews, so did some investigating into the situation. After speaking with three different people at my local store and "Lance" at the main Home Depot customer service, this is what I found out. Hampton Bay has corrected the problem. It does still hold a little water in the track where the seat mesh is attached, but it has now been treated with the same coating inside as the outside. So it will not pour out rust! I bought the set 22 days ago and put a chair out on my existing deck. I sprayed the heck put of it for the first 5 or 6 days. I would then let the water sit for a full day and then dump it out. The water came out clear every time. It has rained several time since then and there has been absolutely no rust. If you are buying this set, make sure you get the new and improved set. Home Depot stores still have some old ones hanging around and the model number is the same. "Lance" at Home Depot headquarters told me you have to get the right UPC code on the box. The new, improved one has the following UPC code: 848 681 000 281
If you get the right one, you shouldn't have any problems. Good luck!

I have another similar set and was hoping this set would be like that one. I like the mesh seats because they are comfortable to sit on and they dry quickly. No worries like with a cushioned set.
The chairs arrived fully assembled and packaged well so that they wouldn't damage each other in shipment.
The ceramic tiles were shipped in place on the table top -- a heavy package! A couple of tiles did shift but none broke.
The table was simple to put together with the provided allen wrench. My husband used his battery operated drill with the allen wrench attachment to do most of the work.
The center plate with the hole for the umbrella is plastic. I was hoping it would have been metal. Even after sitting in the heat of the sun, this plastic piece is still warped.
I find the chairs comfortable. But my tall husband says he doesn't like feeling of the horizontal bar across the top of the seat back against his back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Krissay115 Really nice for the price!
I had this shipped to my local Home Depot and picked it up myself. I was a little skeptical because of the other comments I had read about customers receiving broken tiles. I have to say that this item was very well packed, all of the tiles were perfect and the assembly of the table was simple (of course, I didn't assemble it, my boyfriend did, but it looked easy :) and didn't take long). The chairs all came stacked in one box securely packed with Styrofoam and cardboard to protect them. I was looking at another set, but chose this one because the chairs will stack easily to store in the fall. This is an excellent set for the price!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by annap Great patio set
We purchased the patio table and set of 6 chairs online after trying it out in the store and had it delivered for free to our home. We liked that the chairs are stackable, and that the tiles for the top come out and are easily replaceable in the future.
The company that handled delivery called to schedule a day and time window; they were very helpful and flexible. The day of delivery I called and they could specify a timeframe.
The table was easy to assemble, and the chairs came already assembled. Three of the tiles were broken or damanged, so we had to contact customer service and send pictures to show the damage. The tiles were out of stock, so it was about 3 more weeks before the new tiles were delivered.
The piece looks great on our screened porch, and we like the the tile top is easy to clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frank A great set
Very easy to assemble. All chairs are one piece and require no assembling. The table took less than 30 minutes. ...only 24 screws.
Table looks great and seems well made.

Carefully packaged to prevent damage. Instructions were clear.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by incoloradoandlovingit Great addition to our pattio!
We love our new patio set. Previously, we had a smaller set, for four and needed more seating for our gatherings. It looks lovely and chairs are very comfortable. Be aware though that they are not heavy enough to stay upright if a strong gust of wind comes along, so put them away or closer to the building if the storm is coming. The table was not difficult to assemble, it took my husband and me about 30 min. to accomplish that. The chairs came pre-assembled. A few tiles for the table had a crack and one was completely broken, but the cracked ones are holding for now. We wrote to customer service several weeks ago and they promised theat replacement for the tiles will be on its way.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nicot23 better than expected!
I purchased this on sale and the quality exceeded my expectations! for the same money, I looked at several other sets at various stores and they were all cheap looking and flimsy. This was very easy to assemble. It is very sturdy and the tile table top makes it look like a more expensive set. I was a little worried from reading the other reviews about the condition it would arrive in but I did not have any issues at all. it arrived in 2 boxes; 1 was with all the chairs stacked safe and secure. every part of the chair was wrapped for protection. the table was in the second box, strapped down with multiple ties. it was very secure as well as all the tile. I was surprised. I rated the quality as good as of now not knowing how the table will hold up over time but I recommend it highly for the price!
