J-280 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to our back yard This is the 5th hot tub and 2 Jacuzzi and by far is the best hot tub I have ever owned. The jets are perfectly placed and the LED lights look fantastic.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok not worth the money The J280 is ok but is not worth the money a much cheaper tub of another brand could be purchased that is comparable if not better. Tub had issues from day one, the lights, jets and water fall all had issues. The repairman came out and was able to fix the Jets and water fall however the lights are still an issue. The light strands have been replaced because some were not working now they are not the exact same color and the company I purchased it from says "well they work now". Overall I will never purchase another Jacuzzi again nor would I recommend it....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement Spa We've had a spa for 20 years and one of the interior pipes broke, so we had to get a replacement. Our service man suggested going to the Jacuzzi outlet to look at replacement spas. We found the J280 model and are very happy with it. We wanted the floor free of jets so our grandkids could swim and play in it. We are very happy with the configuration of the spa we purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great hot tub! This is our first hot tub.. wish I could have gotten a one sooner..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 7 year Owner This was probably the best investment I have ever made. There is nothing better after skiing/boarding all day than to kick back and get rejuvenated. We bought the J280 model in 2007 and have used it every week since (more than 7 years now). The only issue was a leak around the light that happened in the 2nd year and it was covered under the warranty. I am sure this issue has been resolved on the later models. We keep it covered year round so the surface is still like new and all the jets are original (just need lubed once so far). My wife and I highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Getting it installed I wasn't aware of the hassle of getting the new tub installed. We had to pay an electrician to come out and unhook the old tub and then come back out to hook up the new one. The problem being, the new tub needed different wiring! No one told us about these problems and at almost 800.00 later, we finally could fill our tub up. The tub is great, but the install was pathetic!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So far so good The real test will be how it holds up in the Minnesota winter. Then I will be better able to give a proper review. I like the hot tub. Got the 400 series where the warranties are not very good and that is my biggest worry. I think Jacuzzi needs to have better warranties on all their products. Not just the upper end. The warranties on the 300 & 400 series do not match up to the competition. But that said, I purchased anyway because we liked the large seating and open foot well. So after the Winter and a few years I will see how much my opinion changes. Right now I think it is great. I only put No on recommend this product because it is too early to tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did we wait so long! Our Jacuzzi tub has been installed for 4 months now. We are really enjoying the comfort, styling, and ease of care of this tub.
