I couldn't be more pleased with the purchase of these fiber optic centerpieces, they're prettier than I expected for the price! I will be using them as centerpieces for my daughters upcoming graduation party and I'm sure it will look great and be a hit ... and the different color choice settings are an added bonus. I scoured the net looking for the best deal on these and Overstock didn't disappoint me, even with the additional shipping cost to Hawaii, these were an awesome deal. The packing was outstanding and though I prepared myself for a couple of them to maybe not be in working condition, they all arrived in perfect working condition.

we're using these as centerpieces for a dinner. all of the units worked and look good as soon as they are put together (I thought I would have to let them 'relax' to get the spray look, but I didn't). they are very pretty and have lots of light settings to choose from. you can even use the red/green at Christmas! not sure why, but they seem to get brighter after they are on for a few minutes too.

Great value, easy to assemble, comes with batteries, long lasting...thought lights could have been brighter or deeper for color to show better maybe, but over all was pleased and would purchase again. Used for some extra decoration at wedding reception for hi top tables centerpc.... guests loved, allowed some to take as favors
I purchased 72 of these for centerpieces at a fundraiser. All of them worked perfectly! The lights were beautiful and ran for 5+ hours without the batteries dying or any other malfunctions. I have seen these sold individually for over $12 each. Great product for the price. I highly recommend these lights.!

I got these on a whim in August 2012, when our wedding was scheduled for the end of October. The wedding was moved to the start of May 2013 and I only remembered to pull these out about a week before. Given the price I'd paid I was afraid the included (!) batteries would have disintegrated or the pieces would not work. A few screws were loose in some of the bases (no big deal, as there are 3 screws to hold on a little panel that 1 will hold) and the battery doors needed to be pooped into place, but after ~9 months sitting in the box they worked great. They looked really pretty and, as (take-home) centerpieces, were the surprise hit of our wedding reception--no one could stop playing with them. :)
All lights arrived well packed and all in working order. Batteries were included and all those were fine as well. The only serious issue I have with these lights is that the sprays on many bend to one side. Not ideal for a centerpiece. Also the fiber optic "spray" is not as full as one would like. However, I have come up with a work around that makes these look fantastic even with the above issues. I took small clear marbles and put in them in the bottom center of each spray. This fixed the bent problem and the "less than full" problem. The marble glows with the different colors and looks really cool. The strands of the spray keep it in place. Used them at a party recently and they were a big hit. Great price too!
