Argos 8 Seater Patio Set - 148 delivery included

Includes Parasol, Table, 8 Chairs, cushions:

http://www.argos.ie/static/Product/p...Cprd%3A8088783

I know it's been posted in the Argos thread, butI think also worth highlighting here. Ordered one just there with money taken from account, so hopefully not a pricing mistake.

Delivery within 10 days going by website

"

I would say it's very cheaply made and would deteriorate rapidly unless kept inside when not in use

Any ideas if the chairs are stackable on top of each other, doesn't look like they are, would be nice to be able to stack them away in the shed for the winter.

Rather mixed reviews on UK site...

8 seater patio set
Good quality easy to assemble comfortable.


Regret buying
Terrible quality throughout, some of the pre drilled holes on the chairs where out of alignment or been drilled twice and wrong angles. The parasol is put together incorrectly not allowing the two parts to mate together. One box of chairs had parts missing and fixings in no condition to allowing construction


Looks good but poor
Chips in all the wood the parasol turns all the time some of the chairs creak wood not great


Great table for a get together.
Nice looking. Easy to put together. Good for the money.

Got one, thanks for posting. I see they're only £99 on the UK site, gouging feckers.

Looks like a great price. But also looks like it could be very flimsy. Would be fearfully that it could fall apart after one or two summers

This finally arrived today - after a failed delivery last weekend... still consider it a bargain, even if I do only get two summers out of it.

The parasol doesn't seem the strongest, but while the table & chairs are fairly light, they are sturdy and solid once put together.

Looks good but will need annual maintenance which is no big deal.

I wouldn't be overly impressed if I paid €520 - which is what it's going for at the minute, but if it came up again for €147 (delivered) and you're looking for something similar, you could do a lot worse!

Mine delivered and put together last week... its not bad and in fairness even if it was 300 quid it would of been a good buy... Keep it treated every year and you're bound to get a good 5 year plus out of it imo... Driver said they were flat out delivering loads of them... Btw thanks op...

And we give a shlt why? For €138 I now have a fantastic 8 place outdoor set delivered to my home that I'll put away in autumn and take out again in May. With lashings of cuprinol it will last me at least 3 years. Best bargain I've gotten in recent memory.
