Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rico Don't buy this shed. Roof separates from shed walls.
I bought this shed in Feb of 2016 and 6 months later I realized that the back two corner of the roof were separating from the back to corners of the shed walls. Now there is about a 1 inch gap between the roof and the shed walls that allow bugs, bees and rain to enter the shed. I called the Suncast support line and they quickly saw the problem and sent me a new roof. I installed the new roof and within five days I notice the same inward cupping of the roof causing gaps between the shed walls and the roof.
I called the Suncast support people again...and they want to replace the roof again!!! Really? its a design problem because the back of the roof has no metal bracket support like the front does. I ask to return the shed and they want to just send me a new roof. Don't waste your time with this model. Unsure about the other models Suncast has but this one is just a big NO.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MattDinOC nice compact shed
I chose this shed because it is pretty compact, yet it has space for shelves for storage above the floor. I store 2 folding tables, 8 folding chairs, a small metal firepit, 2 beach chairs, and other miscellaneous items in it.
Since I didn't want to place it on my patio, I built a wooden platform per the instructions in the manual. If you want to get a head start on this, you can download the instructions from the Suncast website ahead of time and get started before your shed actually arrives at your house. Building the platform and getting it level and stable actually took longer than building the shed.
Building the shed was straightforward, but I agree with others that the instructions on how to attach the hinges to the walls was not explained well. The bolt should be preinstalled in the hinge since it's easier to put it on if you do that first. Then you snap the hinge onto the designated spot on the edge of the wall, and tighten the bolt until it grabs tight to the plastic wall. If it's not grabbing it tight, then you did it wrong. :/ Attaching the bolts that secure the front edge of the roof was a bit of a guessing game also, but we got it figured out.
The plastic assembly bolts and tool provided in the package work just fine as long as you don't overtighten them. They don't need to be cranked down tight! I had my son helping me. It's much easier if you have an assistant to hold the first wall piece in place while you manipulate the second one etc.
Installing a shelf actually improves the structural rigidity of the walls a bit, but I still would not lean anything very heavy against them. If you need a shed that can handle decent forces pushing against the inside of the walls, you probably want to build something out of wood instead of hollow plastic. That said, I did go off-book and add two additional screws to my shelf to secure it to the back wall. That ought to help prevent the back wall from bowing outward, helping to better support the shelf and helping maintain the shape of the shed.
This shed is not very theft-deterrent, even with a lock. If securing the contents from theft is a primary concern, again, you should be getting something more substantial than hollow plastic.
Overall, the shed went together pretty easily, and I'm happy with its construction. I expect to get several good years of service from it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CT Tough, Practical Tool Shed
This was a very easy assembly and a very practical size for all my garden tools. i have a larger shed for my large items, like my mower, so this was the perfect solution for storing all those misc. rakes, shovels and spades. My only disappointment was that there are no accessories for this shed to hang tools, but I went to Home Depot and purchased a couple of tool hanging bars and they worked great.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Demi Awful! The hinges broke immediately.
I should have complained and returned this storage shed the day we put it together. The hinges broke immediately and were never repairable. One door is completely off and now just leans agains the shed. I don't want to give it even one star.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by czechm8 Difficult to Assemble, But Functional
The is one of many Suncast products have I purchased for my grounds, and the first one I had to complain about to the manufacturer. Some parts were mislabeled and one shed door did not have the holes drilled through. I had to do that myself. That said, I managed to correct the problems and assemble the shed. Since this is the first time I've had a problem with a Suncast product, I'll check it up to a one-off manufacturing deficiency and recommend this unit - with caution.
