Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Miklos Composter OK
It is acceptable quality but weak construction. I hope it will be composting as anticipated. Price is ok as well.

Composter was incredibly easy to set up and use. I would have liked if the latches on the top were tighter but I'm able to "double-knot" them so to speak and it works great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Portable, Inexpensive, and does the job.
Ecobin works as intended. The mesh aerates compost well and works like a pull up bag, open on both ends. It comes with 4 pegs to keep it in a place. It is very light and easy to move around. The cover and mesh is held together by these four buttons to keep it in place. Simple and practical design. (See pictures)
The only downside is that if you put light stuff like leaves at the bottom of this bin and then pile all the heavy compost on the top then the Ecobin is likely to lean to a side. The structure of a mesh-bin is not sturdy to maintain it's shape. You have to mix leaves and dirt to distribute the weight evenly.

For full disclosure, we have not done composting before we bought this product. With that being said, I think it works really well, at least it makes sense. It has a mesh exterior that allows rain, wind, and sun to penetrate into the contents which are essential for proper degradation. The mesh conceals the contents fairly well and the overall design is very nice. At least nice enough where you don't feel like you need to hide it away completely.
The top is connected with a string latch which concerned me and the base is tied down with 4"-5" metal stakes which also concerned me a little. I thought this thing would be gone during a good windstorm. Oh man was I wrong. I live in Maryland and we had a pretty nasty wind storm recently. Wood shingles and trash cans flew about like it was nothing. Not this thing, the top didn't even come off! I was incredibly satisfied.
Overall this product is excellent as far as I am concerned. The only thing was that it was a little pricey compared to some other brands, but honestly it's well worth the money if you want something that is attractive for what it is, durable, and at this point effective. I'm hoping this product lasts.
It's also very compact which allows you to transport it in any vehicle.

Quick delivery, easy to set-up and use. Seems weather resistant, but only time will tell.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frangram It so easy to assemble and use right away.
So practical, just throw your green wastes and mix it once in awhile.

Pretty easy to assemble. We can just open the back door and throw whatever we need into it. The only thing is that there is no bottom so if we wanted to move the location that would be quite tricky. Not a huge compost connoisseur and it works so I'm good with it!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sam Think twice before buying a compost bin without a floor.
This compost bin has no floor. Within a few days, an animal dug a hole under it and spread the composting scraps around. Shortly afterwards, a rather skunky smell began rising from the nearby doorstep. We are not using this compost bin any more.
