All the poles were marked so they were super easy but the joints weren’t so it took some ...
A lot of people said this was a cheap product but I disagree! I used this for a party. I needed several sizes for my function so I bought 2 of the 10x30’s and 1 10x20. I put up the first 10x30 and I admit it was hard for the 3 of us. All the poles were marked so they were super easy but the joints weren’t so it took some guessing before we got it right. All in all it took 2 hours for the first tent. The next 2 tents went up super fast within another hour the 2nd and 3rd tent was up. I decorated them with white Christmas lights and hanging paper balls it was truly beautiful. I did not tape the joints of the roof but next time I will. I did anchor the poles to the ground and on one tent I also used tape to anchor the poles of one side of the tent to my fence.
The night before my event I worked late and there was a rain storm and it was windy. I totally expected to come home and find the tents in pieces since all the reviews said that. But I was very happy that didn’t happen!! The roof was being weighed down by water puddles so I used my mop to lift the roof so the water would roll off and it worked. The event went very well and I kept the tent up for a week after my event. It’s not designed for long term use and the poles loosened up from the roof so we took it down. Before packing it away we used a marker to label the joints for ease the next time we used it.
I definitely loved the tent and the quality for short term use.

If you do that then the tent stays up well and you have a nice shaded area
I bought this 4 years ago. First let me say that I am surprised that it has lasted so long. Now I will tell you that every time I have put it up since receiving this, I have had to duck tape every connection on every piece put together. If you do not duck tape it, it will go together to even put the tarp on it. With that said, the extra work to duck tape it goes a long way. If you do that then the tent stays up well and you have a nice shaded area. One of the center top poles did bend and tear at the seam when I left it up over night the second year I owned it. But after that I left all the poles taped and just retaped where they went into the plastic joint pieces. I would still be using it today but I have upgraded to easy up tents. This gazebo tent is still usable but it is a pain in the butt for me, and I just do not want to deal with it anymore. But it is still usable, so 3 stars seems fair.

Sort of Okay but Not Recommended
This tent is really not great at all but in a pinch and with a heck of a lot of white duct tape it does work. We used it for a food booth for Spokane VegFest. It nearly blew over 1/2 through. The poles are super light weight and overall it is not a great unit but for the price of 170 that I paid because I needed prime to get it on time it was half way decent. The problem is that there are no good ones on here for anywhere near this price. It is just super cheap. Someone needs to make a non throw away version that has much stonger poles for the $200 price range. I do not believe I will ever use it again even though it did not break. A few of the poles in the very top came disconnected because the locking system is almost not functional.

5 stars for what it costs - 2 stars if you think this will last you more than a few uses
for the cost and the free shipping, I give this 5 stars. I purchased this thinking it would be a one time use since it beats the price of the rentals. So from a value perspective and useability, i give it 5 stars.
Now onto the negatives for those that are expecting a $1000 Gazebo for a fraction of the costs:
The frames/poles are fragile and easily bend. One of them came bent in the packaging. Luckily you can easily bend back with the strength of a 5 year old. They also packaged it and gave us 1 too many of one pole and 1 too little of the other, so we had to mock something up.
Huge tip is that you'll want to get some electrical tape and tape all the connections of the frame. This will keep it together since the snap clips etc do NOT work.
My dad and I installed this in about 2 hours and we received compliments from everyone thinking it was a rental. What little do they know is the mcgyver type of work we had to do to make it work.
With that said I kept it in a box for it's next use, I'm expecting it'll last a few more uses before it's tossed, but in my book it already paid for itself from the first use.

Not worth it in areas that have wind...any wind
Bought for my daughters birthday party, and after 1 hour of setting it up, it only lasted 4 hours. First off, a handful of the poles ends, at the connection spots, where badly cut and even bent on some. The metal connection pieces they show in the pics aren't even close to what they actually look like (see pics ). Read reviews before that stated to tape poles at joints and where they connect. Did that. Tied 5 of the 8 poles to a chain link fence and the other 3 to cinder blocks. Steaked legs into ground and made sure it felt pretty sturdy. Boy where we wrong! It rained a light drizzle and gradually increased to a slight harder rain. Then can the wind. The tent was doing very well as we continued to make sure it was secure. After about 5 minutes the tie down loops located on the canopy top ripped from the canopy completely. The ropes are still extremely tight and secure to the fence and cinder blocks with the tie down loops on the other ends. Upon further inspection, we noticed the stitching is what ripped away like a piece of thin fabric thread. As for the frame, it held together well where it was taped.... However, ALL the poles bent in half where tape was not needed. Seriously gonna inquire about a semi refund or credit. If you live in an area with unexpected weather, do NOT buy this. I live on the NM and CO boarder and although we get way worse wind, the little we had today destroyed this tent. Cheap buy cheaply made. But for $100 I'd expect a little more.

Worth it for the price
If I would have paid more for this tent, it would have gotten fewer stars. For the price though it is actually cheaper than renting a smaller tent (albeit a stronger construction) so even if you just get 2 uses out of this tent it is worth it!
Getting this thing up took 4 of us and we could have used another hand. Taking it down was the same. The tent and sidewall material is not bad at all and it looks so nice when it is up. Everyone at our party complimented it and never even knew that it was a cheapy. I know that we will get plenty of use out of it so again, it is worth the money.
The poles aren't solid and the metal is thin but once it is up, it is pretty sturdy. My one complaint is that the top spine poles were too short and when trying to attach them to the corner and side poles of the frame, they kept on coming loose from each other. It was one of those things where you push from one end to tighten and the other falls out. We eventually gave-up and used some clear packaging take to just hold them in place. It worked fine and the tent stayed up all day and night. I contacted 2DayDeliver about it to see if they could send new top poles and they couldn't but they offered an exchange or refund if we returned it. We decided to keep it though. Again, it is so worth it for the price.

Held out the rain which was great. Watch out if it is windy
MUCH cheaper then renting a tent, only if it lasts two time. We used this tent for a block party and it worked as expected. Held out the rain which was great. Watch out if it is windy, as it will move, so you either have to weight it down or put up the side flaps. We will get at least one more use out of it which will save us money in the end (renting a tent this size would have costs us double the price of this one).

Worked great, exactly what I expected.
Tent went up in 30 minutes with two people and wasn't very difficult. They shipped it fast and got it to me in 3 days (thank you). There was a light breeze and the tent held up just fine but I wouldn't have it up with any kind of heavy wind. I only marked it down from 5 stars because some of the poles weren't marked and it really does need to come with a bag/case, otherwise it's a huge pain as there is not good way to get it back in the box.

Built like you would expect for the price.
This is not a long term product. It is made very cheap and will work great for one or two times, which is fine given the price (it would cost alot more to rent one). Just be aware that if being used for camping or some regular occasion you may want to consider upping your budget and getting something a little more sturdy and better built. We were only using it for a wedding so it worked for us but will not be able to be used many more times after that.

I was really excited when I got the product couldn't wait to put it together however, once I did it was more difficult than I expected. I knew that it had many pieces and would take a while to put together but not all pieces stayed stuck in place and some didn't even click together properly. I had to resort to putting it together with tape in order to be able to lift it into place considering something would come undone every time I tried. However once it was out up it was beautiful. But that didnt last long we had sting gusts of wind that the tent could not withstand it was ripping the Velcro holding the walls in place right off. 1 hour into the party we had no protection from the wind and even with weights on the legs it still wobbled and wasn't sturdy at all. Now I have a tent with no walls since all of the velcro is no longer attached to the plastic. Very disappointed I knew I was taking a risk buying this considering all the other reviews I read but hey it was cheaper than actually renting however, I would consider actually spending the money to get a better product.
