Rated 5 out of 5 by froggie1 Zen fountain
I love this little fountain. Not only is it nice to look at, it works well. The sound of the water is very relaxing. If the motor is a bit loud for you, just put it on a placemat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SharpS Works well
My wife and I enjoy this fountain. At first I thought the hum was from the motor but then discovered that it came from the table top. We put a piece of cloth under the bowl and the hum (vibration) disappeared.
The reason I rated the fountain a three is that the bowl we received was not as pretty as, and was a different shape from, the bowl in the picture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by YogaAly Beautiful -- just a bit noisy
I am quite happy with the look of this fountain -- and with the gentle sound of the water. My one concern is with the sound of the pump motor which hums slightly. Other than that, this is a nice addition to my meditation space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gaiamreview Nice fountain
This fountain is largely what I had hoped it would be: easy to put together, looks very nice, great size for a side table, attractive materials. I bought it because of the positive review on the site, especially the point about the quiet motor. Unfortunately, while it is wonderfully quiet sometimes, it's noisy at other times. I don't know what makes the difference, since I haven't changed anything on the fountain when it's quieter vs louder. I will say this: it's better than other tabletop fountains I've had in the past in terms of functionality and noise. I'm glad I bought it, despite the noise variability.

Rated 5 out of 5 Love this fountain
I wanted a fountain that looked good and did not have a noisy engine -- this meets both of those needs. If you want it to be quiet overall, fill it up to the top, and it just flows with almost no noise. If you want more water sound, leave it a little empty for the water to cascade into the bowl. I like the mix of metal, water, and stone that this has, and I've liked putting a candle on top. The engine has also been hardy -- twice I've left it on while away, to come back and find the bowl empty (a major no-no because it will burn out the engine). Both times I filled up the bowl and the fountain started right up again. I recommend this fountain highly.
