Would have rated this higher if it had a timer you could set for on and off periods of time. Did not really turn in on since we live in an area that gets really cold and to run up and down the driveway every day is not practical. Pretty but did not illuminate often.
I love the look of this tree. It's a little rustic and realistic rather than a perfect triangle. But it's not exactly as described. The entire tree is not hinged. It comes in 3 pieces: stand, bottom row of branches (which are hinged), top two-thirds of tree (which are not hinged). I 'm afraid those top branches will break off eventually from fluffing the tree. Wire branches aren't meant for repeated bending. The very top half of the tree is full and fluffy all the way through. The lower half is sparse in the middle. When the lights were on, you could see through the tree to the wall. I took some floral picks of holly and filled in the space. It worked well enough for me and I kinda liked the added texture.
I love the frosted shade, the antique brass base, it's small footprint on my desk, the normal-sized plug and the fact that it uses regular light bulbs. Both the huge plug and the bulbs were issue with my last desk lamp. The lamp is a tiny bit top heavy as my kitten helped me discover but not a real problem. My least favorite aspect of the lamp is that the light bulb is way further to the left side of the lamp rather than centered. This is probably only my personal pet peeve and probably wouldn't bother others. I would recommend this lamp and would have liked to rate it 4-1/2 stars but that wasn't an option. :)
Not as full as I expected, otherwise it is a nice tree for the price I paid. I placed the tree on top of a small table to have more space for gifts below the tree. The lights stay cool to the touch which helps since I leave the lights on for long periods of time.
