Set up was quite easy as well.

Inside I found the Rainstation warped into an oval instead of a round circle.

I kept searching rain barrel reviews and decided I wanted one with a sealed lid as opposed to mesh, and also wanted one with an outlet at the very bottom as well as the spigot for better draining. Plus, I didn't want to pay over $100. I'd about given up when this one was listed. No one had reviewed it yet, but the features were what I wanted so I took a chance and ordered it. It arrived super fast, was easy to assemble (with my husband drilling the hole in the gutter) and in a day or two the first rain came and it filled up fast, no leaks. However, due to the weight of a full barrel, my blocks settled. So I watered the garden, emptying the barrel, and leveled again. I've drained it 3 times now watering the garden and can't be happier! It fills with less than an inch of rain. Another nice feature I didn't notice in the description when I ordered was that it comes with a winter plug for the gutter. Just one thing... I thought the item description said brass spigot and it seems like it's plastic. Like another reviewer, I'll use the spigot 'til I need to replace it. No big deal. I'm very satisfied with this rain barrel!

I also experienced a warped barrel because of poor shipping choices by my local Ace and the manufacturer but once it was installed everything seemed to shape back up. All in all seems like a good product. I wonder how long the plastic hose that goes from gutter to rainbarrel will hold up since it already changed shape (no longer quite as level as when installed)in just a few months. The spigot is crappy plastic as everyone has mentioned but Earthwise is aware of it's possible leakage and will replace it for free via their website if this happens to you. Installation was about as easy as it can be, even came with a hole saw for the gutter which I wasn't expecting.

The main complaint and reason for the rating however is the giant amount of mosquitoes this thing incubates. Althought my lid is locked per manufacturer specs I can slap the side of the barrel and watch mosquitoes fly out of the "locking" area. I've contacted Earthwise about this and will update if they give any info on my problem. I imagine if I were to flip lid over and use it as a planter it may seal better, but looks like a design flaw to me. (I have RS65 model which is same as one pictured except grey instead of black... not sure where Amazon gets the RS-001 model number from)

First, I don't give anything a 5 unless I am just in LOVE with the thing and I can only get so excited about a rain barrel so a 4 star is high praise really.

It works like a charm! It holds the water and the gaskets don't leak. What else could I want the thing to do?
;)

I'm sure the cheap plastic spigot will leak eventually but so what ---- I'll run down to Lowe's and get a good one.

I have another rain barrel (can't recall the brand) and wanted a second one so I could capture and store more water but when I went to purchase another the price had gone up by $50! That wasn't going to happen. So I bought this one instead and retrofitted it to be fed from my other one which is already tapped into the gutter system. Happily I did NOT screw the heights up when drilling a hole in the existing rain barrel or this one would have overflown --- even though that really wouldn't have bothered me at all because of where I keep them (out back near the garden area). So I am happy with my rain barrels and for the price this 60 gallon one is perfectly fine. ****can't exactly recall what I paid for this one --- I think right around $100 or so (I am doing this review a couple of months after I got and installed it). Its review night I guess lol..... I was reviewing other stuff I bought and this was on the list too so decided I would toss my 2 cents worth into the mix too. So there u go.

I was generally pleased with the Earthminded barrel. It holds a lot of water, is easy to setup with all parts included. I also like the fact that the top can be used as a planter to make it look nicer as well. The only disappointment would be with the spigot. It is plastic and does not feel extraordinarily sturdy and also will spin around in the gasket that it fits into making it feel kind of cheap.
