Latch is a little tricky to use. Do not use the zip ties that come with it. Needed to purchase better ones. Went up pretty easy. Me and my daughter put it up in a couple of hours. Do not recommend for baby chicks. Mine got out. But sturdy and well made. Everything was marked and easy to understand. My small coop fit right in the pen with lots of room to play

Nice quality. Frame setup easy. Took awhile to stretch and attach the wire fabric, though. Zip ties were way too short for me. I had a hard time handling them and ended up buying longer ones. Also good customer service with in-store pickup.

The coop is solid and "just works"
It's easy to put together, all the pieces snap into each other.
TLDR: Yes, I would buy this chicken run again in a heartbeat.
Putting the chicken wire on it seems a bit daunting at first, but ultimately it's easy too, just stretch the rolls over the top to cover the mid section, then run another roll on the front and back, Ziptie the wire to the door, cut the door out so it opens and closes (And for your safety either duct tape the chicken wire ends to the post so it doesn't mercilessly scratch you or trim it further from your entryway) and trim the chicken wire from the top corners, or just leave it, it won't hurt anything. Put up the Tarp, and voila, instant coop.
The box comes with a lot of zipties, but they are remarkably small and thin. I doubled each one up by putting one end into another one and using each dual tie instead of one to make it much easier to tie the wire to the frame. I did have on hand heavy duty zipties as well, but I used them sparingly. It's up to you.
It took maybe a couple hours to put up and get the wire on it.
It gets 4 stars because like many "cheap" products quality control is somewhat minimal.
I needed a rubber mallet to get one pipe into another (Just one though, the rest were easy)
One of the carriage bolts for the door absolutely refused to tighten, one of those "It's barely tight but if you tighten it anymore it loosens" kind of things. I let it go for a couple months because it did the job, but eventually I went to a store to get a replacement bolt. Super easy fix, just a bit unnecessary when it should have worked fine.
Besides all that, the instructions are... "Good enough" and unfortunately they are nowhere on the website so if you lose your copy you're gonna be going by feel. I didn't mind it too much, a bit like adult legos, the pieces are lettered.
I've had it up for about 3 months now and the chickens love it, if I had any gripes, I wish it were taller, but that's the trouble with this kind of design, I have to stoop a bit if I'm on the sides, and I'm a very short man.
I did run a length of hardware cloth around the bottom edge, as I recommend anyone with any sort of predator in their area to do, Chicken wire only does one thing: Keeps Chickens in. It won't protect them from Hawks, Raccoons, Foxes, Dogs, Wildcats, or Stubborn Humans. The expense it worth it for your birds, you're already buying a cheap run, use the savings and get some hardware cloth.

I read the reviews ahead of time and purchased better/stronger zip ties. It went together with ease. One of the bungees intended to hold the cover on was damaged in shipping; so we used a zip tie for that as well. Our chickens LOVE it!

Great product and easy to put together but definitely need your own zip ties that are stronger
