At first I though this item was overpriced. The fountain is small; however it is attractive and sounds so beautiful. It's nice to hear the gentle sound of the water all day and night long (good Feng Shui). The lights can be kind of distracting but are easily disconnected when you don't want to see them flashing on the walls/ceiling. All in all, I'm happy with it!
The ad for this fountain promises to create a calm and soothing environment. For me, that means the sound of flowing water is what creates the relaxing environment. There is not "sound" whatsoever, no sound, only the "disco ball" rolling and casting a small light around the room. If you do not see the light, then there is no way you will even know the fountain is running. Again, if you simply want a small disco ball casting light about the room, then this might work for you; however, if you want the sound of gurgling or flowing water, then do not order this item. There is no sound.
