Rated 1 out of 5Â by summergirl Broken after one month!!!
I purchased this umbrella to replace a similar one that I bought from Home Depot four years ago. Since then, the company that made the furniture set I purchased has been (apparently) bought out, and now has the Martha Stewart brand. This umbrella was the closest match to the set of furniture I already have, and it did go with it rather well. However, I had it only one month and it is already broken! The umbrella won't roll up at all. I also noticed (straight out of the box) that the material had small holes in it where the seams come together, and I was worried that this may cause a problem with it tearing easily. The material is definitely more thin and the hand crank mechanism is much more flimsy than the one I bought four years ago...although the price has remained the same. I am not usually overly critical, but this umbrella is a real disappointment. I have ordered a replacement because I have to have an umbrella for my table, and a rectangular one works best with the shape of the table, but I am now skeptical about this product. For the price it seems that the quality should be better than that. If you buy it, be sure to keep your receipts!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by drm1980 Just an umbrella
This is a perfectly acceptable umbrella. It arrived quickly and looks great with the table and chairs. It's quite long to fit over the rectangular Cardona table, so if you're going to use it with another table, be warned. Also, the picture on the HD site shows it with a base...you have to buy your own base.

I would have really liked this rectangle umbrella, but it does not tilt, so the sun gets into our eyes at dinner time! I think we're going to need to return it!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Suzie Poor quality mechanism
Pulley broke the first time we opened the umbrella. Even though we were being careful to open, when pushed up, the rope or string snapped. Returned to Home Depot store. Haven't ordered a new one yet. Gave it one star because it was shipped promptly and received within a few days.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jason Arrived Damaged, Color Doesn't Match
The umbrella is much darker than the coordinating patio set. Additionally, the bottom piece arrived damaged so it will be going back to the store and I will not be ordering a replacement and instead will look for one that is lighter in color. Lastly, you should know that it does not come with a weighted base even through it is pictured with one.
