I received the barrel about a week ago and it had rained a few times so I have a little bit of experience with it. One thing you will want to do is elevate it for two reasons: 1. water pressure, 2. to make hose easier to attach. After the first rain, I had a lot of trouble getting the water out, so I drained it out and put it on a plastic stand I improvised. The pressure still isn't great, but at least I can get the hose on.
Also, the item was about twice as big as I expected. Not really a problem, but I did have to clear out some space and positioning it was a bit of a challenge, so just something to keep in mind.
It does look exactly as pictured. If you use it as a planter, be sure to put some rocks or something in the bottom before you plant anything because water will accumulate as it doesn't drain well.
The picture I attached is before I elevated and planted flowers. You'll have to tilt your head, sorry.

I bought one of these in the spring of 2012 to collect rain water for our vegetable garden. It worked ok at first but the drain lets out the water at barely a trickle. As I filled it with water this spring (2013), the barrel never seemed to fill up. One day I finally turned it over and there was a very large crack on the bottom of the plastic where all the water was leaking out.

I contacted the company (Good Ideas) and sent pictures of the defect near a seam and a copy of my receipt. I was the told that it was out of warranty and that all they could do was offer me a discount on a new one. I believe it was only a month out of warranty. So I want to warn anyone considering the purchase of this unit that the company does not stand behind their product as they are very strict about the 12 month warranty. If they wanted to act in good faith, they would have replaced it. The discount on another unit was worthless as I wouldn't want to throw away good money for a potentially defective product a second time.

Please beware that this may not last more than a year.

    Comments about Good Ideas Rain Wizard 65 Gallon Rain Barrel Urn:

    We received two rain barrels,as ordered, of which neither worked. It was impossible to screw the spigots into the rain barrels. The plastic of the barrel just bent sideways. Customer service was called and they were very helpful and understanding. Two more barrels were sent to us and they went together just fine and are working fine at this time. We are very pleased now! They look so good.

    Comments about Good Ideas Rain Wizard 65 Gallon Rain Barrel Urn:

    This was the highest capacity barrel I found for this price which is very reasonable. The quality is above average, it sits well on the platforms I made; I have five (5) total. The planter is a nice feature. The spigot could be better quality; a few of them bind up and the price increase for the terra cotta is significant. If the spigot was better and the colors were the same price as the granite I would give it 5 stars.

        I had been looking at rain barrels for a while. I love the style. It fits in beautifully on my patio. It is bigger than I envisioned but not a problem. I elevated it on some left over pavers and it drains well. Nice brass spigot. I'm already looking at purchasing 2 more!

          Comments about Good Ideas Rain Wizard 65 Gallon Rain Barrel Urn:

          I have wanted to install a rain barrel every since I installed rain gutters after my house remodel, but the price kept me away. I considered making my own, but the DIY 55 gal drums from food grade containers just look too ugly next to my newly renovated house. Then I stumbled on some info about my local water utility offering $75 rebates/barrel (up to 4 barrels/ home) and the decision was a no brainer. I wound up purchasing four of them. These barrels look great and work well. I bought flex hose from my local HD to connect to my down spot. The size fit perfectly into the barrel once you remove the mesh screen that comes with the barrel. I had a bunch of leftover red bricks that I used to build a platform to raise the barrel up. The terra cotta colors looks good. I'm not so sure I'd use the planter on the top of the barrel. Even though there are drainage holes, I think it makes more sense to get a small pot and place it in that space. It'll be easier to re-pot/switch out plants should the need arises and if drowning your plants' roots is a concern, it would be easy to put some gravel or a few small bricks or something to help raise your pots above the level of the drainage holes. As for the spigot...it works well (not as heavy duty as a 1/4 turn hose bib), but this is for a rain barrel and is more than adequate. The fact that it's brass says something-I've purchased a rain barrel for my in laws with plastic spigots that reeked of cheap (local stores only had one type of rain barrel in stock). The only thing I'd caution is to be sure to thread the hose bib/spigot onto the nylon opening slowly to carefully check you don't install it crooked and end up creating new and crooked threads. I'm considering connecting another barrel to help increase the capacity. I think I'm going to use one of the two overflow ports in the back, but I'm not sure if this is the best way of accomplishing this. Maybe I'll have to update this when I'm done.

            Hayneedle;

            You have no ideal how long I have been looking for an attractive rain barrel. Now I have one. After receiving it, I am envisioning placing it into the yard. I just can't wait.
