Completely Meets Expectations
on April 29, 2013
I looked at the ratings of every fountain on Amazon. No matter what price range, they all seemed to have very incongruous reviews. Any given fountain would have one rave review followed by a totally opposite one. It seemed to me that people buy these things with very different expectations. Those with realistic expectations are delighted. Those who expect an exact replica of an island waterfall or babbling brook have nothing but complaints.
This particular fountain has a very simple design. I think it looks better in person than in the photo. I don't think it has a cheap look at all. The motor is very quiet and the water can be heard softly and evenly trickling down the "steps." Nothing is splashing out onto the table underneath. If I want a little more "drama" at night, I can light the two tea candles (not included) on top.
I'm very glad I chose this particular fountain. If you think your expectations are in line with my own, then you will be glad, too. Otherwise, you may not be happy no matter how much you spend.
