Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bdsd pretty but not so functional
This umbrella is very nice looking. I thought it would be a good idea to get the rectangular one to match the shape of the table, however when we started using it I realize it would be better to go with a round one that can angle down so you can position where the sun is hitting. This rectangular one is only really functional around noon when the sun is directly above you. Also when the wind blows it doesn't stay in place even after you tighten it at the bottom.
The quality is good but I was also annoyed that it didn't say the base wasn't included even though they show it in the picture. I had to go out to the store to pick one up after we got our set delivered.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by prairiemaven attractive, affordable, does the job
We've had the umbrella for 2months, and I'm pleased. It looks very nice with our 6 foot rectangular patio dining table. It is very simple to put up and take down. We take the umbrella portion out of the base post after every use. We lay the umbrella on the patio table and cover the whole shabang with a canvas tarp. (I'm 5'2", in my late 30s, and not exceptionally strong, I have no problem putting up and taking down the umbrella) I expect as long as we continue to care for the umbrella in this way, it will last for many seasons. I have a feeling if we left the umbrella exposed to the elements it would not last very long, even in a temperate climate like ours. Worth the sixty dollars I paid for it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MikeG Poorly constructed
I just recently opened the shipment to use the umbrella that was received 2 weeks ago. The seams where the stitching joins different sections of fabric together has pinholes of light streaming through as though the material has been too tightly stretched. I feel that this will cause a premature failure of these seams. This may only be an isolated incident with my particular itemor due to the thinner guage of fabric used. I wish that the quality was better because it would be the perfect product for those with rectangular outdoor tables. I am therfore returning the product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cardona9ftUmbrella I purchased this product along with the 7 piece dinning set and I was surprised to see them on my door step just few days of ordering it instead of 7-10 days. I love the umbrella it’s a neutral color that matches with everything. The only down fall.. It doesn't come with the stand! I wished the customer service agent would have told me or even tried to offer to sell that product so I would have the complete package or suggested a similar patio set that has everything. I called back so I can purchase the stand & they didn’t have it in their system. They suggested to go straight to the manufacturer or wait until the spring they MIGHT get it in!!! Really?? Now I have to return the whole thing and find another set that will sell you the WHOLE package.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Beanman the picture of the product was misleading
I ordered the two umbrellas on line because of the good selection. The pictured product showed the umbrellas with a base. I quickly discovered that the umbrellas did not come with a base. I went to the Orlando store and a very helpful young lady looked it up and showed me where it didn't come with a base. I had to really search to find that. If the product did not come with a base, YOU SHOULD NOT SHOW IT PICTURED WITH A BASE. The young lady helped me find and choose two bases which cost approximately over $135 additional.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dennis59 cheap material
I'm disappointed with the material of the umbrella. Very thin. The color seems off, not a real tone. We're not confident it will survive more than one Southern California season. The crank works fine but the rust-resistnat powder coating gives the metal almost a brown cast and it doesn't match are black table. I was out of town when it arrived and my wife assumed I was getting what I wanted and tossed the box and the paperwork and began using the umbrella. If I'd been here when it arrived I would have returned the umbrella.

Very nice umbrella. It is large and goes right over my glass sliding door to shade my kitchen. Lasted 3 summers, the string or something broke on the inside so it won't crank..wish I could find out how to fix it becaue otherwise it is in excellent condition as I bring my umbrellas inside after every summer....but I will be buying another one.
As for the reviews commenting about it not coming with a stand. I have several outdoor umbrellas and not one came with a stand. Read the description folks. It says umbrella.

After a good amount of research both online and at other retailers and specialty shops, I recently purchased this item since our last umbrella broke and flew off our deck in a storm. This umbrella arrived nicely packaged and appears to be of great quality. The color is a pure tan and the fabric is very durable and thick, as it has sustained high wind and rain this summer so far. The size of it's parameter exceeded our expectation as it was a little larger than expected but this provides great shade so we are delighted. It looks terrific with our glass, 8 seat rectangular table and we believe it will last longer than the last one (which was almost one year.) The pole is a deep brown color and the silver crank is rather easy to open and close. Definitely a great purchase with a great price!
