My husband and I put this together in about 4 hours. We had some trouble getting the cover on -- one corner has the support not quite extended as far as it should be. It was well-packaged, which is why we were able to determine that the dents in two of the main post a were already there when it was packed. Neither dent prevented us from using the post successfully. We're easy to please. It wasn't clear from the description, but this came with a full set of privacy curtains. We weren't able to use them and instead used a privacy screen panel that I got from Amazon. The privacy panels that came with the gazebo couldn't be configured to cover only one side of the gazebo. Overall, this is a niece gazebo and we are happy with it.
I like the green canopy on this gazebo, but it is not vented so there is concern of wind damage. I am not sure if this was a returned item or not. Every one of the four posts have a ding and one of the long canopy poles was cut short making it less stable. Time and duct tape will tell. The illustrated Instructions are helpful, but difficult to decipher. The long corner canopy poles (2 pieces for each pole which makes it a bit unstable) MUST go into the longer fittings on the center spoke piece. This is where you need a 6 foot ladder. Very pretty once assembled.
