pre-fab resin "rocky stream" fountain: too good to be true?

This may be heresy to you pond-pros, but this small unit would fit perfectly in a little gully rock garden on my postage stamp-sized property.

Link to product info
I hate to order it online, sight-unseen, as plastic rocks may not look all that real (may?)
Anyone seen these type of items? How's the price seem?

Attractive water feature. Good size for a small space. Reasonably priced. No warranty info. You need at least a 2-3 year guarantee on the pump. No mention of filter or liner. No mention of catch basin. Is pump properly sized? 260-GPH pump with 6' cord? Sounds like a trickle and most tend to recommend a minimum of 30' cord. Have you checked at local garden centers and done some comparison shopping?
