Do you have to cut the downspout in order to fit the barrel under?

 Yes, sort of.
You can get a diverter so you have to cut the down spout to put in the diverter.  

I remove the last 4 feet of downspout and during rain barrel season the water drops into the rain barrel.
I take the barrel down during the winter and re-attach the 4 ft piece.

Make sure you don't put rain barrel on the ground if you plan to use the water from the spigot.  
I have mine on cinder blocks+.  Need to be able to fit a bucket under the spigot.

This is a great price or this, but the 3 reviews on Amazon (for the sandstone colored one) are terrible.

I started out with 2 of these.  They are impossible to clean out with the algae on inside wall and at the bottom of the barrel that clogged up the water pipe.

Then I found the Suncast square w/lid rain barrel.  They don't look good as the urn rain barrel but much much easier to clean and much cheaper too.
