I purchased this tree as a replace for my previous tree that my husband proceeded to break last year. I love my new tree, It's the first one that I have had that already has the lights on it. It has 1100 colored lights. I love how easy it was to put up. It has three sections and they snap together and as you are putting it together you have to pull the light cords down through the tree.
The tree comes with a stand, the tree, and an extension cord. So, all you have to do is put it together and plug it in.
I have never owned a slim tree mine have always been very full so when I first put this one up I wasn't sure about it. But as I have left it up already this year yes, I have my tree up November 5, 2007 but I figured why put it away it just gets pulled out in a few weeks. It has come to grow on me. The branches look very real like and not plastic looking so over all I give this tree a thumbs up!
