Shocking quality compared to the 6 I already have from Garden Selections. These lights must be from a very bad Chinese factory !
on 15 July 2014
Be very wary of these packs of 4 solar mosaic garden post lights ! I bought 2 sets of 3 from Garden Selections earlier this year and they've been fantastic and do look beautiful. They arrived perfectly packed with tonnes of padding. Each light had been made very well and they've worked beautifully. So I decided to buy some more and bought 2 packs of 4 from Home Outdoors because they were offering the best deal for what I presumed would be exactly the same product. I received my 2 packs of 4 from Home Outdoors today. There was no extra packing around each box of 4 or any effort to make them safer in transit. Luckily they arrived unscathed ! But these are shocking quality compared to the 6 I already have. No care's gone into making them at all. They've been rushed by poor Chinese factory workers, no doubt being paid penny's for each one. 3 out of the 8 lights have missing gaps and some have rubber bits instead of the plaster material. Several of the stands are scratched or worse and 4 of the solar panel parts are either badly made, or very grubby or have glue over them. I am fussy I admit but if you're buying brand new products they should be in perfect condition and when comparing these to my original 6, the few that are just ok would still be classed as second quality, at best ! Either I was very unlucky or Home Outdoors has bought a load of cheap and nasty ones, so don't buy them is my advise ! I hope Home Outdoors is better than these lights that they're selling, I'll soon find out ?
