I did get this at an excellent price for an offset patio umbrella; however, it refuses to close completely. Now, I do know Overstock's customer service would be more than happy to remedy this problem, but I do not feel like finding a way to pack it up and return it, so I crank it as closed as it will go, then put a bungee cord around it. Summer storms can pack walloping winds, so this umbrella ends up in the closed position much of the time; not so great to look at, but better than losing it. NOW... having said all this, I must say it is an attractive umbrella in design, and the blue color is very pleasing. I added umbrella twinkle lights that are installed on the umbrella ribs; they make it look extremely attractive.

Very easy to assemble. The umbrella base has withstood a few mildly windy days. I love that I don't have to weigh it down with bricks or stones to keep it from tipping over! Nice-looking and functional!

Well built and easy to assemble and use. Do need to weigh down footing/stand if not permanently attaching or can't attach to patio/deck.

The umbrella fabric is a bit weak..it will do for a couple seasons. It is something between a rain umbrella and a patio umbrella quality. Also the hardware is of some plastic hybrid. Definitely not for strong winds. We use a string on one corner to add support and keep it from blowing the weak looking metal hardware at its base. Other that that, we are delighted to be able to have a nice looking umbrella without the clutter of having to have a base.

Very hard to keep this umbrella stable. We had to pile numerous patio blocks on top of each other to keep this upright in this least little bit of wind. We will have to work out a better way of using this product. Bought to cover the hot tub to protect the little ones from the sun.....The quality of the material is great.....

Provides great shade for our deck. Really heavy duty fabric and frame. Excellent value for the money.

Umbrella and base arrived separately. Base is HEAVY. Cement was a little cracked due to shipping, but nothing that can be seen or will diminish operation of umbrella. Overall a terrific value. It's relatively inexpensive for something of this size and the moving parts feel a bit cheap that if not care for won't last long term. But for the price, it works perfectly, was easy to set up and had provided just the right amount of shade. Highly recommended if you're on a budget. Note that the heavy base is really hard to move so you'll need someone strong to set it up and move it until you find the right spot. But, it's in, I'm done sweating, and I'm relaxing in glorious shade!

We received the umbrella around the first of August and began using it a week later. Loved it, absolutely loved it..until the cord that runs inside the pole to lift and lower the umbrella wore completely in two. That happened in less than three weeks of use, and it wasn't used every day. We had screwed it to the deck which worked wonderfully so now have to undo it all and pack it up to return it for refund. What a pain and the umbrella was so great it makes me sad that it didn't work out.

My deck umbrella is a great addition to my deck. I have a very large deck and I get lots of needed shade with this umbrella. The construction is very sturdy not like other umbrellas I have had. It looks great and I get many compliments on it. It just makes sitting outside a pleasure.

I looked at many umbrellas, I did not want to spend more than $***. I also realized I didn't want to buy the heavy pavers and put them on my deck, (I didn't care for the look), so it is important to me to have an umbrella that had a base. What attracted me to this base with that it was round, not a big, overly- conspicuous square shape. I was a little apprehensive about the base being 125 pounds, but I took a chance. FedEx delivered the umbrella. They heavy base is not very well packaged, just a regular cardboard box with some Styrofoam, and the entire box fell apart as the FedEx man was trying to get it off the truck. In the street, we ended up getting rid of the box altogether, and putting the base right on the hand truck to get it into the yard. A few small, glitchy issues with putting it together, but when it was finished I have to say I could not be happier with how it looks. I love the round/cone shaped base, it looks very elegant. The offset umbrellas are a little cumbersome, but I don't have any problem opening, closing or adjusting it. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. The price was great, it's very impressive looking, and creates such an inviting space over a wicker love seat, coffee table, and two chairs. I actually like that the base is solid, and you don't have to worry about filling it with sand or cement. I feel that the umbrella is very secure, and that the base is sturdy enough to hold it. The based does look a little scuffed up, but I think it's because it's filled with cement, and so the outside gets a little dusty. Not a negative for me in anyway. The photo shows the umbrella looking fairly upright when it it's in the closed position, however, that is not the case for me. Because of the curve of the pole the umbrella will always lean towards a 90° angle when closed. Not an issue for me. Overall, great purchase, very excited to use it this summer, glad I got an umbrella that comes with the base.

This sun canopy is very unique. I've never seen another like it. Its very sturdy and was easy to assemble. Well worth the price. I love it!

This umbrella works great. It was super easy to put together ( 5 min.) and it works like a charm. It is heavy duty plastic-not metal, so I am not sure how long it will last. You will need to purchase 4 square 18" pavers to weigh the umbrella down at the base. I purchased it in blue and it looks fantastic. I'm happy

Just purchased this umbrella since it looked so nice online! We were so happy to see the great quality and design of this umbrella! It is adjustable for any angle of shade and just looks great in our backyard! We'd recommend you get one too!

The umbrella looks nice now, but wow, what an ordeal. I had to order a replacement umbrella because the first one was broken/missing parts. The 2nd one arrived in new condition, but the base pieces were never going to fit together - between both sets, we finally have a working umbrella, but oddly, we have all these extra parts that aren't in the directions??? Lastly the umbrella cannot really be tilted that well - but it looks nice and will serve our purpose.

Right away some items broke that were pretty important. We needed it for the next evening so we fixed them ourselves. Good thing my husband is handy and I have a sewing machine. We both were able to reinforce our designated parts and make it stronger. Now I love it. I wish I would have gotten a little bigger umbrella, though. Not Overstocks fault. They are actually wonderful to work with.

Still early to tell as I haven't seen this in heavy wind but it is a nice looking umbrella that provides quite a bit of shade. Stylish and I get a lot of compliments so I hope I will get to enjoy it for quite some time....BUT...assembly and even positioning it where you want is is a 2-person job. The base weighs a whopping 130 lb and the packaging it comes in does not hold up to the heft of the base -- a solid cement disk that practically blew out of the wimpy cardboard and styrofoam packaging. Once you get the base in position assembly is easy, but totally agree with the missing and/or extra parts comments in other reviews. Still, I managed to get mine assembled with no missing parts. One big drawback is that it does not come with a strap or cover to hold the umbrella closed when you put it down. I resolved that with a wide decorative ribbon as I figure better that than let the wind destroy it. As I said, nice looks, hope it lasts a long time -- so far so good (and i'ts been about a month).

We are really enjoying this Sun Canopy. The base is great and holds the umbrella very well. The base is a heavy as they say and we suggest you open the box near the place you want to place the umbrella. We really like the look, but feel we should say there is a slight drawback in a windy situation. The top layer tends to flip up at the section furthest from the post, but only partially because it is tethered to the bottom layer. We don't feel this should influence a decision but should be noted if you plan on buying..... which we highly suggest. Great buy for the quality!

This umbrella has a weighted base with a much smaller footprint than the cross style requiring patio blocks. It's just what we needed to be able to use our deck during the heat of the day. Love it!

Very nice umbrella, easy to assemble and looks great too!

This umbrella was a decent value, although it could use some improvements. First, the umbrella fabric is a tad flimsy. I had to resew the bit of fabric that secures the umbrella to the pole because it tore in a fairly mild wind. Two of the bolts for connecting the umbrella to the base were missing. Still, the base is solid and very heavy and the umbrella is large and it is easy to operate.

It was VERY difficult to put together, some bolts were missing and some were in exess. The fabric ripped off on the first attempt to open the canopy. After wasting the whole day to put it together and repair, the canopy almost works. The base is very heavy and holds up, but the canopy itself is too flimsy to be used in a wind. So it could only be used as a rain protection on a very calm day. It looks nice opened up, not so good in a folded down position, must be folded down in a windy or stormy weather, and was a lot more expensive than comparable ones from other stores. We were not able to try to put it together for a few weeks after receiving it, otherwise we would have returned it.
