Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrammyLulu So far, so good
My grandkids love this! They are 5, 8 and 12. My daughter and I put this together by ourselves - a bit challenging but we did it! Because our winters are so cold, we opted to fill it with sand rather than water and we put a couple of sand bags on the base for extra support.

Arrived within expectations. Materials appear to be good quality. Packaged nicely. Not as difficult as I thought it would be to put together. I did put some things together that I later had to switch around because the directions did not make it clear which way they went on. I had to file two holes that a bolt didn't fit likely due to paint. The adjustment mechanism works very nicely. There is some wobble of the backboard when imapacted by the ball, but I don't know how this would compare to other portable systems.

Summary: Quality is not what i expected and it was more that at other stores. I hope it lasts but i would buy something different next time.
I read the reviews and thought i was getting a High quality product for the price. Despite the comments to the contrary it is not hard to put together. I put it together in about 45 minutes without any trouble at all. Just follow the directions.
the First problem is the the backboard is all plastic and not the good hard plastic but what feels like pretty thin and somewhat flimsy plastic. I was expecting a more solid backboard with a fairly thick plex backboard and that definitely not what this has.
It is also not exceptionally stable. Filled with water on flat ground it moves fairly significantly every time a ball hits the backboard. Maybe with sand it would be more stable, but the location of the holes will probably make that a difficult proposition.
Finally, the cost from Home depot is quite a bit more that you can find the same item elsewhere. Within a week of getting it and putting it together i saw the same item for almost $100 less at a different store than what i paid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mark Works very well, stable, and easy, but awkward, to assemble
Features adjustable height goal that works easily. Stable in use and can be moved. I built a stand for storage so that it does lie on the rim when taken down. There is no provision to divide into sections so assemble where you plan to use. Every part fit, good instructions, requiring about 6 hours to assemble by 1 person with proper tools and a table. Good product.

My kids love it. The lowest height adjustment is perfect for my 6 year old. They play all the time.
