Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SkippyT Most versatile sprinkler I'd yet used!
My wife & I quickly fell in love with this sprinkler:
easy-to-use features and ability to easily adjust width & range made it a clear choice so I could water the yard and not the house!
Only issues I've had with the product is that the width control paddles are a tad flimsy and broke off after a few months of use. I also wish the range control wings could go more than a mere 45 degrees to either side because we have a hill and when the sprinkler is on a slope - I need to be able to move them past 45 degrees.

Even with 60 psi from our hose, we were only able to get about 600 sf of coverage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman 1 Best sprinkler I've ever owned
I purchased one of these for my sister-in-law. It worked so well I went back and purchased 2 for myself even though I already have numerous different sprinklers. The spread on this unit is incredible and the width control makes it possible to configure for almost any shape of area one wishes to water. The various adjustments are incredibly easy to make. These are outstanding sprinklers. These are much easier to adjust and use than the Gilmore sprinklers I used previously. I wish the metal one had been available as these are quite light. I will probably attach copper tubes to the sleds to weigh them down. That is the only drawback as they are all plastic. However, the way they operate far outweighs the slight drawback and the solution is very easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ike Very useful because of adjustment controls
Bought this 6 years ago, it finally 'died' (quit oscillating). Immediately bought another. There is a cheaper model, but it is not adjustable, and I wouldn't recommend it. But this deluxe model allows for adjustment of both the width of the spray (wide to narrow, one adjustment), and the angle of the spray, that is, how far it oscillates. And this second control is separate for each side, so that you can have the spray oscillate all the way to about 45 degrees on either side, or as little as 5 degrees, approximately.
Quality I rated one notch lower, because it is plastic, and will break down in time (as mine did in 6 years).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jason1 So far so good
I like the range of the device and the ability to adjust the width of the spray. I have a long yard that is 25' x 55', so being able to narrow the width of the sprinkler definitely comes in handy in terms of not wasting water and watering the fence or neighbor's yard instead. So far have had no issues with the plastic adjustment tabs referenced by other reviewers. I can see if you were really hasty and pushed on the ends how they could snap off /break, but if you take the time to press on the tab closer to the body of the sprinkler I think this should last a good while. Will update the review if anything changes but so far I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bbarr Design flaw?
This sprinkler stopped oscillating after five minutes of use. I restarted it, changed the range controls twice, changed water pressure and still it stopped after one or two oscillations. I see other reviewers have the same problem so I question whether the design of this sprinkler is flawed. If so, why does a large chain like Home Depot not demand that the manufacturer produce a product that WORKS? Does Home Depot really want to have unhappy customers going back to the store to return products? I was happy with the width and range adjustments (that is why I bought it) just wish it worked for me and the other reviewers. Build quality is laughable, lightweight plastic in all parts

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JulioF Stopped Oscillating After 3 Days
Drove 45 minutes to nearest HD. Picked up my order (Melnor Sprinkler) after 15 minute wait at CS desk (computer system was down). Drove 45 minutes home from HD.
Worked fine for 2 days, stopped oscillating on 3rd day. No, it was not clogged. Pressure was fine.
Now, I'm supposed to pay shipping back to Melnor for replacement? No HD warranty as far as I can see. They present a warranty for the product, but it is only the MFR warranty.
I'm supposed to box it up and pay for shipping, for a defective product?
Maybe Lowe's provides a store warranty on sprinklers? It won't be a Melnor, that's for sure.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WorkingMom Easy to use!
Was a little hesitant to purchase at first because the product's lightweight made it seemed flimsy, but the lifetime warranty details displayed on the box convinced me to give it a try. It was simple to adjust, had a wide or narrow arc and stayed where I put it! Good buy!
