For the price, not worth it.
from Victoria, B.C.
Too hard to put together, you have to weigh it down with bricks and big stones... I charged the lights after I got the planters put together and had the hanging baskets on. The lights never came on at all... My friend looked inside and the soder had come apart on both lamps, probably in shipping... TSC also asked me to ship them back, I can't do that now, so I asked to just replace the lamps, I am also still waiting for a answer on this. It has been about 3 weeks now..
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Looks nice but planter base awful
Bought 2 of these for my riverrock gardens. Base is cheaply made & difficult to assemble. I had to keep twisting into place. takes 3 people( two to twist the basket & one to hold the post steady), Filled with rock before the soil to ensure would not topple over. Once assembled and filled with plants it looks great. Light is nice in the evening. Because of assembley issues I rated it accordingly
Pipe in the Pole!
By MAG from NB
from Miramichi, NB
Very nice looking but overall very cheaply made. We put a pole inside the aluminum one to reinforce it. The piece of metal to attach the pole to the base is very flimsy. The basket is way too cheap but my husband bolted it to a patio stone so hopefully it'll stay standing. I was pleased to hear some people did hang baskets from the two extending arms and they held as they too are very cheap and with rain would make the pots very heavy. Oh well, it looks fine so we'll see how long it lasts. Wasn't a cheap 'delivered' price by any means after shipping & taxes.
For show only
The lamp itself is good looking but is a show piece only. The pot is a piece of junk. Every time we had a good wind the top fell down .I should have sent it back but I screwed to top to to bottom
light inthe dark
By hamilton tsc addict
from dundas ontario
Not as easy to assemble but triumphed in the end! The base pot is not as classy but with plants in is OK Has not been tested in the high winds yet.Had several good comments from condo neighbours and am very pleased with the effects both day and night so will recommend it with above reservations.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Beautiful Solar Lamp Post
By Diamond Girl
from Calgary AB
Since our Calgary weather remained miserable for several early Spring weeks, I did not put the lamp post up until 2 weeks ago. After reading the reviews I decided we should put it into the ground at the corner of a large deck that has a previous TSC lamp from 6 years ago on the other edge. My husband decided to use some quick dry cement in the hole so it will not move. I like that there is a height difference with the lamp screwed onto the deck. Love that I can hang two flower baskets on this one. It looks wonderful!
Thanks for the information

Well after reading all the comments I decided to order the lamp. I was a little afraid my husband would make me send it back but he unpacked it and put it together. The lamp is gorgeous but the base is a piece of cheap plastic. It kept coming apart so my husband hot glued it so it would stay together. Well it did and we filled it with flowers and I hung 2 x 12 in flower baskets and it looks beautiful I get a lot of compliments on it. My back yard is like a tornado when it is windy but it hasn't tipped over at all. I love the look of it and I would recommend it to others but I again would tell them about the base.. thanks Shopping Chanel
ATTRACTIVE BACKYARD ACCESSORY!!!
By Best dressed in the WEST!
from Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta
I really like the way my backyard looks with these planters on each side of my deck. I purchased two (2) when they were the SHOWSTOPPER. I found assembling these were not as "easy" as what was said, and it took me quite a while to finally have the final product together. I filled the base with heavy loam and sand, along with two hanging plants/flowers on each, and they have withstood some seriously high winds we've had out west lately. I really like that I can turn the lights to a "white" or "amber" or "off" positions. I do prefer the amber the best. I have to admit, I really do like this product, and I am hoping they last for years to come.

Nice but light doesn't work
from Aurora Ontario
I bought this when it was the show stopper last time. We put it together and filled it with about 40 lbs. of stones to keep it stable. It looks very nice with my hanging baskets but the lights do not work. They came on when it was first assembled then that was it. I couldn't send it back as I through out the box. I agree the pot that it stands in is rather flimsy.
A weighted base is the key
from Niagara Region
I just set ours up this weekend. I purchased 2 lamp posts and set up was very easy. The instructions clearly state that a minimum of 40 lbs should be put in the base to prevent tipping. I used several bricks (as many as it would hold) and filled it in with Spanish moss and a Boston fern plant. I watched the presentation when it was the showstopper and it really wasn't mentioned about the amount of weight needed for safety. Perhaps too much emphasis was put on the fact you can move it around- believe me with a ton of bricks in the base I won't be moving mine now. No wires is great but common sense says to make sure it won't tip over in windy weather. It has been an expensive lesson for some buyers so I would recommend a slight change in the presentation of this product.
