I have used weaker canopy tents that have bent and snapped. This tent appears to be more durable, but with the thicker frame it is noticeably heavier than other brands. Other than that one drawback, I am very pleased with the quality.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kim Little water resistance
I purchased this canopy for use at farmers markets. It's great if the weather is good, but if you're expecting rain buy yourself a tarp or prepare for water! It's also pretty difficult to set up if you're vertically challenged or don't have much strength. Those top brackets take quite a bit to snap in!
I'm not happy spending $200 on this!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LittleBigHart Okay for occasional use in calm weather
Looks nice once set up. Not crazy about appearance with "wall" attached. The Velcro straps are black and highly visible against the white tarp-like material. We like that it folds up compactly and fits in a rectangular carrying case with wheels. There are 4 pieces of L shaped metal things I assume are the stakes. These did not work for us keeping the canopy on the ground during moderate wind gusts. If there had been vents at the top (like big well made table umbrellas) may not have been as much of a problem. No problems with mild steady winds and would be fine for indoor use in a display set up. Not sure why this is called "Commercial." The metal frame is thin and very lightweight. The leg joints and locks are all plastic. The wall tarp looks to be waterproof but not the canopy top. You have to use quite a bit of force to set this up. It feels like we'll eventually break something during set up with repeated use. We were afraid to use as much force as we needed. 2 adults to get this up, the directions are of limited help and ours did not include instructions for attaching the wall tarp, (though not hard to figure out.) Okay for occasional use in mild weather. Just doesn't seem durable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MomtheBuilder Heavy Duty Canopy with Wall
This commercial canopy is much sturdier than the old easy-up type we've had. It is also heavier, but with the wheeled carrying bag or a wagon, it's manageable to transport. The tarp cover and wall (covers one side) are made of a strong, sturdy material. There are 4 metal stakes to stake the corners into the ground. The black case is strong and has a sturdy zipper. The opening zips horizontally around the bottom of the case; I wish it opened vertically along the longer side of the case, to fit the frame in more easily, but it looks like it should be okay to get back on the frame with one person holding the frame up and one person putting the case down over it. I set the canopy up by myself because I was impatient to test it out, but obviously it will be faster and easier to set up with 2 or more people helping. A great canopy overall for the back yard, sporting events, camping, or beach days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Allthingsvu Easy setup, no assembly required.
This requires a 2 person to pull out and extend the frame. Once it is partially open you just place the canopy over the frame and pull all the way out. There are snaps that click to lock in place. Easy setup requires no assembly. Just open up and use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jswobe Large canopy, goes up easy, but it needs guy wires
This is a nice, large canopy that goes up fairly easily. It took about 30 minutes to put it together and get it up the first time. Since then, it has only taken about fifteen minutes or so to get it set up. It only takes about ten minutes to take it down and get it zipped back up in the case.
The case is fairly nice. There are wheels on the bottom to roll it around and two handles to move it. The bottom of the case unzips so that you can stand the canopy up while folded and pull the bag off. It works the same way for storing it in the case, only in reverse.
The spring loaded detent pins on the legs are the best I have used. Most of these canopies have the push button pins that you have to mash in with your thumb to move the legs. This canopy has a fat gray lever that moves the detent pin for you. They are much better than your plain push-in pins. See my pictures.
The "full wall" is pretty cheap. It's just a sheet of plastic - nothing more than a thin, white tarp - with some velcro strips sewn along the edges for securing it to the eave of the canopy and the legs. Unfortunately, the velcro strips are placed in less than ideal spots - right on top of the pin assemblies at both the top and the middle of the legs. Because of that, the wall sort of bunches instead of being tight and flat. Moreover, there were no instructions for the wall panel. It was sort of a trial and error effort to get it aligned and hooked on.
The only thing this canopy needs is guy wires. It has small stakes to hold the legs down, but in heavy wind, I don't think those stakes are going to do much. I could be wrong, and I have not had it out in a windy event yet, but I am always leary of tents and canopies in heavy winds.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mixerpilot Excellant Patio Canopy
The Quick Shade 10x10 Commercial Canopy was a great choice. I chose the Quick Shade for our family backyard functions. After the lost of our patio awning and large tree we were looking to get a patio umbrella for shade. When the canopy was shipped to me I place it on our 10x20 patio, and used concrete anchors to hold it down. The Quick Shade has provided several weeks of protection from the rain and sun. I gave the canopy a overall rating of three when we only had it for two weeks and I noticed after a few days of mild winds the movement caused the Aluminex aluminum to be rubbed off the backside of the nylon top at all connection points. My concern is if that continues will I get holes in the canopy, if so the rain will be coming through. For now we are enjoying the dry patio and the shade we have is great. I placed red duck tape behind a couple of the areas. The cost is about the price of an patio umbrella and a good choice for my use.
