Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patty I love this musical tree!
I have been searching for a musical tree and was glad to grab this one on Black Friday at my local store. It's beautiful when fluffed up and the music is loud and adds that something special to our holiday decor. Like other reviewers, we have yet to figure out how to play music from a USB device but overall we are very pleased. The music is pretty loud at maximum volume. I love it and hopefully we'll have it for several years! I do have a video on instagram but can't figure out how to share it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lou1 Beautiful tree at an excellent price!
I was looking for a Christmas tree that was pre-lit, multicolored, and had both lighting options of staying lighted constantly or twinkling. I really wanted the Martha Stewart version of this tree, but kept missing the Black Friday sales. I took a chance on this tree because it also had everything I wanted at a great price! I have absolutely no regrets. The tree looks amazing all decorated and the music box was a bonus feature.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BluesBrother Replaced Defective Music Box - Very Happy, Now
The tree itself is fine - all lights work and tree is full and nice-looking.
Unfortunately, the original music box we received with the tree was defective. After about 10 minutes, the audio output became very "noisy" and distorted, to the point of being unusable. I contacted the company (Winners Customer Service - their phone number and email were included) and to their credit, they promptly sent a replacement music box. I am pleased to report that the replacement music box works "as advertised" with no obvious problems, and we are very happy with both it and the tree.
The included instructions leave a lot to the imagination, especially when it comes to how to use the "external USB music" feature (see below).In particular, they neglect to mention that the USB drive must be formatted for Windows, and the songs must be in MP3 format.
Beyond this, the description of how the various buttons work leaves a lot to be desired. However, with a little fiddling around, you can figure it out.
A couple of "usability" notes:
1. The built-in songs are not full-length, and one song simply ends abruptly and another begins. Presumably, this was done to make the most of limited on-board memory. However, it's annoying to have songs cut off, and makes listening to the built-in music less-than-enjoyable.
2. Fortunately, this can be overcome by plugging in a USB Flash Drive containing one or more songs of your choosing, which the music box then plays instead of the built-in music. Here, you're not limited, as USB flash drives are inexpensive and come in very large sizes (GB's).
Simply copy tunes from the music program of your choice (I use iTunes) to the flash drive and plug it into the music box. Be sure to observe the following requirements:
- The box only supports drives formatted as Windows (DOS-FAT) format. If you use Windows, this will be no problem. I use a Mac, and formatting the drive for use with a Mac will not work! Fortunately, the Mac can format a drive in Windows format, so this was no problem.
- The songs on the drive MUST be in MP3 format; other formats are not supported.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Terriette Nice tree for the money
The tree is very full and wide. I was pleased with how it looked set up. The height and width were good. It took over an hour to set this tree up, even though they advertise it as a quick set up. The branches have to be spread out to achieve the fullness you want, and it took a long time. There are two sets of lights with the tree, one clear and one colored. You've got to watch what plugs you put together. The remote control is temperamental and has to be in line with the music box sensor.
CON There doesnt seem to be a way to not have the music playing and just have lights on. We eventually turned the music volume way down. We'll be reading the directions again in case we missed something.
There were 5 branch tips that were not attached. They were just sitting in the branch and fell out as we set the tree up.

I have been looking for a tree that would not "break the bank" for years, so I am so excited that I found this one. It is gorgeous and a lot bigger than it looks. I am very pleased with this purchase. I bought it online and picked it up at Home Depot on my way home from work. It was so easy, I walked in to the store, signed for my purchase, and left. They had it on a cart and ready in Customer Service when I got there. Wonderful experience all around.

I like the tree. It is very pretty and full once you get it working correctly. The music box did not work correctly at first, it would not turn on at all. I plugged the lights in per instructions, but was missing alot of the red stickers so was a bit of a puzzle at first. Once I was able to get the box to work correctly, a little praying did help, I was able to quickly figure out the connections and label myself. The box works about 75% of the time with the power button. So if you click the power button and wait a minute, enough times, it does come on. Remote does not work for powering the box on but does control the sound very well. Sound is ok, a bit distorted in comparison to a normal radio (background) level. After reading another review I will be contacting support to get a replacement box. This seems to be an issue sometimes getting the box to work right. Overall very pretty tree when it is working and my 7 year old loves it! I would take the chance again given the great price for such a full looking tree with lights.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tsue best artificial tree i have ever bought
unbelievably easy to put up I think it was about 10 minutes from box to finished .3 tree pieces and stand lights are bright and beautiful just plug them into box and then you can use the remote to control sound and 5 different lighting patterens,the tree stand is great I didn't worry if this big tree was going to tip over like some other ones i had bought ,with other trees i always had to add lights not this one i love the music box and the remote.the music was loud and clear plays 25 instrumental christmas tunes , I never used the USB feature for my own music maybe for 2015 christmas ,this is a tree that can be passed down as an heirloom it is full and gorgeous,Visitors at my home asked is that a real tree?
