The good:
-Once it is all set up, the light is small and pretty. It will fit on anyones desk. 12H by 5"W
-The light it emits is soft and cool. It will not blind you, but it won't be too weak either. It looks great in the dark.
-It changes colors gently every other second. Not a boring one-light color feature.
-It is definitely worth the money even though it looks cheap when you first see it.
-A great and safe (though the battery compartment can be easily accessed) gift for my 6yr old son back home since I can't be there for Xmas.
The bad:
-It does not rotate on its own. But even then the lights flaring at different places every time makes up for that.
-I received mine in a plain paper envelop, inside it were two fragile carboard boxes. One had the Fiber-Optic strands and the other one had the stand. There was not much care given to the packaging. Luckily mine was not broken when I received it.
-The material is obviously cheap, but I would say that it matches the price well. The base seems to be of recycled plastic, which could be good or bad depending on how it was molded. This one feels cheap, but again, the price is right.
-The item is not a gift replacement! If you only give this to anyone, they may think you are cheap. Althoug probably most people would appreciate this little xmas tree, it will not impress someone who is expecting something big.
Overall, it is a great item. I will actually order a second one so that I can set it up in my room here in Afghanistan...it will make me feel closer to home and my son so that we- can share the xmas spirit online that much easier.

Ok, i didn't have high hopes for this little tree. It's cheap. I have it on my desk at work. There are 3 little lights inside the base that determine the colors of the tree and now only one of the lights is working. So instead of alternating between 3 different (and subtle) colors, my tree only has a few red lights. (After only 2 days.)

UPDATE: Customer service promptly emailed me and said it probably needed batteries. Low and behold, i put in new batteries and the thing works again. Better to maybe not ship it with old batteries but......it's working and i'm happy again!

UPDATE #2: After about a week with fresh batteries, the green and blue lights have stopped working (again). This is not a battery problem. This is a cheaply made item. It is a shame because when it's working it's very delicate looking and pretty.

UPDATE #3: I contacted the seller. They are VERY responsive, answering back by email within an hour. They sent me a new tree. Be aware that the trees are different colors. My first one was a lovely pink. This one is dark blue, also very pretty. However, it sits on my desk at work, and therefore is "on" for 8 hours straight. This is all the batteries can take. Even new, fresh batteries. I still think it's a very pretty tree, just be aware that new batteries you put in yourself will last about 8 hours of continuous use. Also, on the Amazon page it says it uses 3 "AA" batteries, that is not true, they are AAA batteries.

I am impressed with the service and response from the company. The emails they sent along the way letting me know when it was packaged, and then shipped were very helpful. I am very satisfied with the Tree it is small, but where my husband is deployed he doesnt have much room for anything larger, I love the LED Lights and the fact that it is battery powered. It will be the perfect holiday gift for him, bring him a little Christmas away from home. Its the least I can do. Thank you for allowing me to give my husband a little holiday spirit. I will recommend you to my friends and other spouses.

I used this cheap looking product 2 night and already the lights quit working. It now only blinks a quarter of the tree in red.

It does not look anything like the picture. It is completely plastic and breaks very easy. Not worth the money at all. I cannot believe they even sell this. More like a dollar store item. But seller did send this to me very promptly, so I rate that a 5-star for shipping.

Despite the tree's very small size (12" x 5"), the life of the LEDs was extremely poor. The Blue and Green LEDs (2 of 3 total) stopped working after ~50 hours of usage and could not be revived with a battery change. Additionally, the white and pink base/trunk of the item was not discernible from the product description and is very unsightly. I would definitely not recommend this item for purchase.

At first I thought it was a good deal. Now I see it was a waste of money. The more its used the less the blue light works. WIsh I had spent the money on something better.

It only partially lights up. Doesn't look like the photo. If it worked it would be cute. I would not recommend.

Very disappointed I ordered what I thought was a fiber-optic white tree. But instead I got 3 trees blue, pink and orange. The base is totally different. The base cover on one of the Trees is missing. The packaging was horrible. I will not order again ...... To return this product would be to expensive. Why does Amazon do business with this type of cheap company..
