Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mormor Umbrella is not as sturdy as it looked in the photos
Too "light" and no way to return it unless I wanted to pay too much in shipping. Wish I hadn't ordered it if I realized that I could not return it to the store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MNM17 Great Umbrella!
We bought the Martha Stewart 5 piece Grand Bank patio set and decided against the matching umbrella because of poor reviews so we opted for this one. Its large and gives great shade! The quality of the canopy is wonderful and I love the color (color is true to picture online). So easy to set-up. Just crank the handle and stop right above the tilt feature and your done! I do think however that the price of $119 is a bite much, but with UV protection, great quality, and offers fantastic shade with tilt feature it was worth it. I recommend this umbrella for sure!

This umbrella is just what the description says. It's easy to put up and down and it looks very good in the picnic table.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Persistent patio umbrella purchase (twice!!!!!!)
I received the wrong umbrella TWICE-2 different deliveries it was not the Wheaton Stripe it was solid brown-TWICE.
And both times we had to return the umbrellas to the local stores.
There is a problem with communication between Home Depot and the manufacturer/distributor-one that has not yet been corrected.
BTW I bought the same umbrellas 3 years ago and the winding mechanism broke the first day I opened it this season - so we needed a replacement. Is it a quality product and a good value?-for 2 years of limited use ???? possibly if/when you finally get them.
Why did I try to order another 1? I liked the color/pattern (argh!).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HandymanMike Good if properly maintained.
I’m writing this review on all umbrellas with the hinge design. Be warned, the hinge is fragile. A wind only 20mph can snap the button/pin in the hinge, making it unable to lock into place (permanently hang sideways). The wench, pulley, and levers to open/close the umbrella are solid. I’ve gone through two umbrellas (on the third one), everything on them held up about a year each, only the button/pin broke, mainly due to leaving it open when I head to work, then a sudden wind storm comes up. If you get one of these, I highly recommend closing it every time it’s not in use. Otherwise, I recommend a more heavy duty umbrella such as the larger over hang ones or one without a hinge at all. Also if you are in the more Northern states and get a lotta snow, be sure to wrap this thing up and put it in storage for winter. Closing and opening the umbrella when the material has ice or snow on it, could crack the material since it’s frozen.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Katt Broke after one year.
I purchased a Plantation Patterns Patio Umbrella with a tilt button and after one year the tilt button broke off. Now, when raising the umbrella with the crank, the rope pulls the top of the umbrella in the full tilt position. Basically, the umbrella is useless. I called Plantations Patterns customer service asking for a replacement part and they said that I was out of luck. That there was nothing that they would do. Poor quality, poor customer service. You can buy what you want but I will not buy another Plantation Pattern product again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gardener Quality is nice, color is not as pictured
I like the quality. This is actually the third brand that I purchased for quality and ease. I like the ease of the crank handle as opposed to a pulley system. Its a perfect size with a square patio table and 4 chairs. The color I first selected was Lakeside Green. It was more of a celery color. Not as I imagined. I then returned it and ordered the Brown solid color. It is a very nice brown (not too dark or too light). Classy color.
