These lanterns were returned due to the fact they looked very flimsy and cheap. I realize they weren't expensive and I guess instead of getting a bargain I got what I paid for.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I really like the lanterns. Very nice display in my Den... Will be very good in case of power failure. Very good buy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from COBBLE HILL
Got the lamps, was going to keep one and give one as a gift, but after reading some reviews I decided to open both to make sure they worked. Not only do they both work I am now keeping both of them. Nice light off of them and would certainly work well in a power outage. Will use them for camping and the patio this summer and they just look nice sitting on counter. A good buy.
They're really cute, the light's good. I think they'll be fun in the backyard this summer. However, they are made of very cheap tin-like metal and are obviously not at all durable. Good as a novelty item.

Good value for the price.
from Freshwater, Newfoundland
The lanters are attractive functional and inexpensive. I had problems with one lantern, I returned them and the folks at The Shopping Channel who replaced them with good ones. Other than quality problems from the factory I recommend these lanterns.

I have to agree that the quality of the lanterns could be a little better, but the light they produce is remarkable. As I got these after experiencing several power outages this past winter, I am satisfied with the amount of light they produce and as I also got them at the reduced price I can say they are reasonable and would certainly recommend them.

Past reviews talked about the quality of the lanterns and I have to agree it is not great. I am glad I did not pay full price, otherwise, they would have gone back.The quality could be better. They are nice looking as they look authentic. The light is good, but the battery compartment was different on each lantern. One compartment was all plastic, the other lantern has a battery compartment that is part plastic, part metal. Not sure why the difference.I like that you can dim the light and control the brightness. I don't think I would feel it was suitable as a gift as the quality is lacking.

Nice and Bright
from RICHMOND HILL
I give 5 stars because at this price they are an excellent value! No they are not heavy high quality steel but they are attractive and give out a lot of light. I love the dimmer switch and will leave one on my deck as soon as we get some half decent weather. It will look amazing out there. I also needed a good light in case we lose our power again and these will be very handy for that alone. Great for a night table as well.I buy the battary's in the dollar store not expensive at all and I can recharge them when needed. All in all I am well pleased with this purchase.
Great Light; Not so Great Exterior
I ordered two packs of these Lanterns. After struggling thru several days of no power/light during the Ice Storm in December 2013 I wanted something that was both practical and provided good lighting.What I like about these lanterns:1. They give off a really bright light; 2. The dimmer switch is a good feature.3. I like that I can carry them around the house. Especially during power outages. What I don't like about the lanterns:1. The exterior is not of good quality. 2. The carrying handle constantly sticks and falls out of the holes that house the handle(s).3. I struggled with getting the batteries in.4. The D Type batteries, that are needed for the bright light, are expensive; and need to be considered when purchasing the lanterns.All the annoyances aside, and they are minor, the lamps provide the bright light that I was hoping for.
