Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love all the features, and the jet layout is great We have had our 480 for a month now, and have lived using it every night:day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Time Owner We were never really "hot tub people", but living in Western NY, a pool didn't seem like the sensible thing to do since there is such a short season for such an enormous expense (quotes were $60k+ for an in-ground). I can honestly tell you we've been in the hot tub EVERY day but two since we've owned it, and that's because we went camping for two days. We added a heated, concrete walkway leading up to the hot tub so we can truly use it year-round. We'll be in it tonight after work! Can't wait!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unrelaible I bought my J480 in March 2011, there has not been a year of ownership that it hasn't required some type of major repair. It has had 3 new temperature sensors, two replacement circulation pumps, 6 new speakers, 1 new control panel, new waterfall LED's, 2 new cup holder LED's, 1 new power supply for the stereo, and the stereo progressively packed up, CD player first then total failure which has coincided with all the LED's lights flicker and stop working inside the tub. These tubs are ridiculously expensive to purchase in the first place, but maintaining them seems to be exponential. If the tub was a car it would be marketed as an Audi, but in reality its a Peugeot. Such a shame because I love using it, it looks amazing and when it works it amazing, but let down by very poor reliability and compounded by Jacuzzi direct being re-branded, (Outdoor living) which has meant that many consumables and spares have exponentially increased in costs. Please consider when you purchase these tubs they are amazing, but you will need to consider once the warranty runs out, keeping the tub working is going to cost you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good looks/unreliable electronic controls This is my second Jacuzzi and I am extremely disappointed with the numerous and continuous problems of unreliable and inaccurate temperature control systems. The dealer is responsive and has replaced practically all sensors, display, control pad, components over numerous service calls but still the accuracy problem persists to some level or reoccurs in a very short time. Currently the SETTEMP is 80, Display reads 101, My Thermometer reads100.5. See photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic We purchased the tube a couple of months ago and have enjoyed the many features. The control functions are easy to use which adds to the overall relaxing experience. The oscillating jets work wonders on muscles and the water fall feature with the lights make the deck look like a million bucks.
