When ordering, I was told it would take 6 weeks to get because the black frame was unavailable. I was willing to wait. However, I received the entire frame and umbrella material within a week - a very pleasant surprise. It is good quality and very easy for one person to assemble. I will need to drill a hole in the frame so I can stick a pin in it to anchor it to the base (which doesn't come with it), to make sure it doesn't blow away should we have a strong rainstorm. I love this umbrella. Looks great and appears to be good quality. (The top finial is good quality plastic, but I prefer that over wood.)

Its rained since I put it up so I haven't used it yet. It looks substantial. I was surprised I had to attach the canvas to the umbrella frame. It was very difficult to get the canvas pockets onto the arms. I finally put a screw driver in the pocket to open it and then I was able to work the pocket over the end of each umbrella arm. Also, there were no directions as to how the umbrella tilted. I had to call. They looked it up in their directions. I would have liked those directions. You need to continue to put the umbrella up past the part that tilts and then it tilts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mass01824 Love, love this umbrella!
Don't hesitate to purchase this umbrella. I did, but then decided to go for it. It came in two boxes, one had the canopy, the other the umbrella pole. I easily connected the base pole to my umbrella stand and then the umbrella into the base pole. I secured the canopy to the top of the umbrella with the cap, let the material drape over the umbrella and slipped the spindles into the canopy loops. Cranked the handle and whalaa! Beautiful sunbrella fabric and bronze frame. Great price, too. Worth your time and dollars.

I was so happy to find this big umbrella on sale. It still seemed expensive even at the sale price, but it is a really nice umbrella and I was delighted to find it still available in a Sunbrella fabric to match the chair pads I bought from HD two years ago! It assembles easily and the ends of the canopy fabric just slip over the ends of the spokes. In my opinion, the only negative is the large, very ugly plastic ball that goes on top. I would think this could be made to look like something other than a poorly molded plastic ball. But it is high up on top and not all that noticeable once it's installed. Still, for the price, I think an improvement to the finial would be in order. I'm very happy with the umbrella overall and it really is beautiful in the Sunbrella fabric.

This review applies only to the umbrella and not the canopy. I am disappointed in the quality of the materials used. When compared to the umbrella I purchased at a store specializing in patio furniture, this one comes off third rate. The pole is not as sturdy and crank mechanism has too much play in it. I may have had to pay another $50 at the patio store, but I'm sure I would have ended up with a much sturdier umbrella. Lastly, the umbrella did not come with instructions for the auto-tilt feature.

Color was accurate to the samples posted on-line. Easy to assemble. Better to do with 2 people but can be done alone. I have a rectangle table that seats 6 and thought about ordering the 11 ft but thought it might dwarf the table. The 9 ft is sufficient but when it is fully assembled seems a bit smaller than its stated size. I think the 11 ft would have been just fine and offered a bit more shade.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AugresRF Excellent quality
Excellent quality and workmanship at a great price (on sale)! Arrived in 4 bus. days with free std. shipping. Took only moderate effort to stretch the canopy over the rib ends, to assemble. Looks very nice and the crank works very smoothly with a real quality feel to it. Especially liked being able to order just about any combination of frame color and fabric color/design.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shadylady Expensive but VERY well made
I have had have one of these umbrellas for about 5 years. The only reason I need to purchase another one is because it is used in a windy location.Even though the umbrella was closed and the stand weighs 75 pounds, the wind still blew it over and a hole was ripped in the top of the VERY sturdy Sunbrella fabric ! ( I now take the umbrella completely out of the stand prior to a storm !)
