I was skeptical about ordering a Christmas tree online, but could not find anything that I liked in the stores. I took a chance on this tree and am so glad I did!! This tree was purchased to be used in my dining room with 9 foot ceilings that go into an 11 foot tray ceiling. The tree is beautiful! It has a slight sheen to it, which gives off a glimmer when lights are added. I liked this tree so much that I also purchased a 9.5 foot tree of the same brand for my family room.
Tree is as pictured, except it did not come with a gold star. Looks excellent once the branches are spread out, especially in a dark room. Only potential problem for the future is the power adapter gets hot when in use, which is a little disturbing for a brand new item.
Great appearing and operating tree... with great safety because LED and Fiber Optics generate virtually No heat vs. other lighting sources. This tree operates silently (vs. both physically rotating trees and 4 other LED/F.O. trees we tried without success). As the bright branch tips vary in color, with a very nicely paced and graduated dim interval pattern between colors as the LED lights rotate inside the base to change individual fiber optic branch colors. Very attractive proportions to a wider base branch diameter than the other brands we tried. This base is wider and more stable than competitors we tried. It also had a better fitting of tree trunk to base by virtue of an added plastic ring that fits in the base, rather than requiring user cram a step wrapped with f/o strands and green covering into a base with no cushioning or spacing or fitting. I suspect that over time this better fitting will reduce wear on the fiber optics and result in longer useful life of the product. This tree, as all others tied at higher costs, has a fixed base. In our case, either the tree stem is slightly bent or the plastic ring was attached slightly off level, but a few coins under one or more of the tripod leg extensions provided a quick fix (such fix was not practical with other 4 trees we tried, which all had only a relatively small round ''pot'' style base that would wobble if leveled, partially contributing our return of 3 prior trees). Although this tree seemed to have the same internal construction design and parts as the 4 other trees we tried, it was much better aligned and the only one in which all screws and fasteners were both tightly affixed and correctly positioned to give optimum light quality... perhaps just coincidence... or (as I presume) better quality control and quality assurance standards in assembly by the maker or distributor. I highly recommend this model (and potentially its brand-mates) for its excellent appearance and much better than average construction !!!
These are also sold at a name brand retailer PB, and are about the same price, however theirs do not have a timer. I will buy these over their product for the convenience of the timer. Mine will be wrapped through a white pom-pom and silver bell wreath, so it will be perfect. Thank you for this product!
