What reviewers didn't like

You aren’t going to get the most beautiful barrel on Earth. It has a utilitarian, “get the job done” appearance which might not be appealing to some. You also don’t get a lot of bells and whistles like attachable hoses, etc.
The holes in the inlet filter are too small and don’t allow much flow of water.
Some users found that the barrel has a tendency to tip over when it is full, though it is possible that these barrels were not level in the first place, or were sat on soft ground. A few users also complained that the fabric was not strong enough and had a tendency to rip, but most users contested this and said the fabric was easily strong enough to hold water, and any rips must have been down to misuse of the product.
The design of the rain barrel is rudimentary and won't win any design award.
