Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hawkeye I'm going to agree with DB, SHE is correct
As DB said in s earlier post, people do not read the instructions, then they give hate where stupidity is involved. If you put diesel in a gas car, your going to find the car doesn't work so well. For 20 bucks you can not go wrong. Just do as the instructions read, drain hose, take out 2nd washer and do not store in the sun. But then again we are talking about a 20 dollar hose. Use it for a season and throw it away if it breaks, its not made from your tires. It will not last forever. If 20 bucks means that much to you, then add 20 bucks more and get a real hose, then when that one breaks like all hoses do, you got a complaint there.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jewels Acceptable Quality - Very convenient
Lightweight. Easy to handle and maneuver. Won't destroy your garding if you end up dragging the hose over established plants. One drawback is that there is not as much power behind the spray, but that is the sacrifice for the lighter weight and easier handling. It may take a little longer to water the garden, but I think it's worth it. The other drawback is that 50 feet isn't very long, so it's hard to reach everything unless your spigot is located central to where you'll be watering. It's easy to store in a hose bucket and doesn't get tangled or kinked and takes much less time and effort than winding a heavy duty hose.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DrBundy OK for light duty use
Bought this to use as an accessory hose while RV camping so the kids could wash off bikes and muddy feet. For that purpose it worked just fine, and the compactness is the biggest selling point when talking about RV camping where weight and space are big considerations. If kept pressurized, the thin walls don;t feel like they're nearly as puncture resistant as a standard rubber hose (obviously, because if's an expanding hose) so we kept it drained when not in use. Also we found it never quite retracted nearly as much as it does in the advertisements, but that's not the end of the world either. For $20 there are certainly much better options, but considering the specific use for which we bought this hose it worked out fine for us. Time will tell the longevity.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DB Ease of use makes up for the so-so quality
I wonder how many read the product use recommendations and instructions. If you are using a nozzle or sprayer (not just shooting water out of the hose itself), you are supposed to remove the second attachment piece on the spray end. Also, the instructions clearly state that you should store it out of the sun and not outside.
That being said, HD is absolutely wonderful about exchanging these. I have swapped two (before I read the instructions myself), and I walk in with the broken one, go get a new one, and pretty much just hand the blowout to customer service and walk out. No receipt, no license, no info, no nothing.
I think these are so great to use, that I don't mind one extra HD trip per summer if need be. I still think it is worth it.

While the style and idea is wonderful we can not in good conscious recommend this product. We have purchased 4 of these hoses over the past 18 months and they've never lasted beyond 4-6 months. Very disappointing because we love the design and usability. In the end though....the cost is not worth it.

The spray is way too hard, can't adjust it to more of a sprinkle for watering flowers.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ceeaitch SORRY...this is JUNK!
We have returned 4 of these since April of this year...FOUR! We have a border garden around our 20x20 patio at our condo. The hose was stored after each use, and never abused. Each time the leak was in a different place...once i watched as a balloon formed like a puff adder's throat, then BURST!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Scratch This Product Is Junk
I guess this is another case of getting what you pay for.
In theory, this product will save you a lot of time and aggravation. In practice, it may do that... but only very briefly before it gives out. Despite the claims on the packaging, this hose is not tough at all. It apparently can't even tolerate light to mild regular usage. I suppose it might be okay for very light duty, but at that point you might as well just get a watering can.
In fact, this product is so inferior, I think it reflects badly on Home Depot for even stocking it. It should be blacklisted and removed from the shelves.
