I've gone through several of the cheap Suncast ones from the big box 
stores.  I had leak on one, called Suncast and they sent the replacement 
part for free.

I seem to get about 10 years out of each before the 4' connector hose 
springs a leak.  At that point, they are sun faded and I think I got a 
fair value for $25.

In my backyard I installed a wall mount NeverLeak by Ames Plastic 225-ft 
Wall-Mount Hose Reel and am happy with it.  Quality seems a little 
better.  The 225' capacity does great for a quality 100' hose.  The hose 
guide also makes it much easier to reel up.
