For something so cheap, this is surprisingly durable. It's worked with regular usage for 2 years in the AZ heat. It actually outlasted my "durable" hose.
The only problem in the design is the point where the hose connects to the spindle. It could definitely use some reinforcement. I avoided wrapping the hose tightly where the connection is made and ensured I never unwound the hose completely to keep the stress off that point. Unfortunately, I forgot about this with my replacement hose, which wound up cracking the connector.
You shouldn't really expect much from something that costs less than a day at the movies.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NPOKaty lasted 3 years
This purchase was a replacement for a broken one. The original hose lasted 3 Years. The plastic weathered due to hot Houston sun. The hose reel spends a lot of time in direct sunlight. I would have moved to something more sun resistant but I did not want to drill more holes in the stucco.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner Broke twice
I am very surprised that the buyer for this Home Depot department continues to purchase this item. I purchased one 18 months ago and the mounting back snapped off from the weight of the 100 ft hose after 8 months. I called manufacturer. They said that never happens! They made me dig out my receipt. They did send replacement part. After 8 more months, guess what... same thing. I just threw it out!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dinjh waste of money
it broke in less than a year where it attaches to the wall and has leaked around the seals from day one. I've had another hose reel that pulls straight out from the wall and is still working after 8 years. Maybe would be good for a 50' lightweight hose.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TS Defective design: two broke, each within 6 months
I have tried this product twice. In each case it broke within six months. Both times the break was in the same spot, which is that same as identified by many other reviewers.
Two other problems: first, it does not hold 100' of hose. My 50' hose barely fit. Second, the water connection on the reel (that allows it to turn) leaks so that water leaks down the side when the faucet is turned on.
It might work for a very short, very light hose. But for any other use the product is defective.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RobJ Poor quality.
Mine could not hold 100' of hose well and ultimately the plastic frame cracked. Would not buy this again.
