I needed a shed this approximate size and this one is the only one I found. Had previously bought a Rubbermaid at another residence that held up well. I am happy with the shed and the ease that it went together. The color is also close to my siding color. I have my self-propelled lawn mower, large wheelbarrow, fertilizer spreader, gas powered edger, gas weed-wacker and numerous outdoor hand tools in it and still can get some more stuff in it. Time will tell if it holds up.
This small shed was very easy to put together and seems stable but is pretty small and a lawn mower or similar would not really fit in it well. Biggest downside are the shelves which you probably would want in there, they are not offered and you have to make them yourself. This would be OK but the size is so obscure at 12.5" wide that you cant get the right planks without cutting along the length and then you have to cut the ends at an angle. Real pain for a simple shelf and I think Suncast needs to offer prefabricated shelf option.

I've been looking for the perfect shed to fit into a irregular corner of my property for some time. I bought this Suncast
XL plastic shed and couldn't be happier with the purchase. I looked at the somewhat smaller, less expensive Rubbermaid shed at my local HD and wasn't impressed at all.
This shed went together easily with all joints fitting tightly. The plastic is thicker and more sturdy than the Rubbermaid.
You'll have to buy it sight unseen since it's online only BUT shipping was very reasonable and quick.
This large Suncast shed was even better than I expected.

This shed is perfect for our use. Living across from the water in Florida, we get lots of wind and rain in our rainy season. We've had several downpours, and this shed is completely water tight. My husband was at work when it came in, and I managed to put it completely together all by myself. I'm 65 and 5'1", so if I did it, anyone should be able to. When he came home all he had to do was screw in the metal brace that joins the two piece roof together. The installation directions were simple to understand. The main thing is to make SURE you put it on a level surface. We have patio pavers, and I did have to reposition a couple of them to get it perfectly level. I have read a few reviews where people have complained that the doors don't line up or the hinges pop out of place. A level foundation will eliminate those issues. I have purchased other storage units in the past, but this one is by far the best. We just purchased another Suncast unit that is a little smaller, that we will use for all our outdoor yard tools. Great products.

I took the shed back to the store and got a refund. The center hinge on the doors would not stay engaged in the designated slot, which left a one inch gap at that area, which made it unsightly and not weather proof.

I purchased this a little over a year ago. It took some coaxing with a rubber mallet to make all the parts go together while building it, and I was never able to get the roof to fit correctly. But the worst part is after barely 1 year in my back yard, the sides and roof have warped terribly.
There are huge gaps in every wall panel and roof joint, so the contents will never stay dry. I had to bungee a tarp on it to protect things, which makes it very difficult to get to the inside.
I expected much better service from this, especially considering how much it cost, and am very disappointed. I will probably avoid Suncast products in the future.
When I first bought the product, I loved it... a great amount of space inside without taking up too much of my patio and not too much of an eyesore. However, after just 3 months with minimum usage, I noticed that one of the plastic doors kept popping off its plastic hinge. And since it's plastic, not much to do about it. I had to go away for some time so I duct taped it shut. When I returned and opened the unit, I found that now BOTH the doors were popping off the hinges. (long sigh) I think that's pretty lame for the cost of this thing and it to be immediately not work. I'm still recommending it only because on the up side, it appears that this hinge problem hasn't caused any water to leak into the unit so that says something for the design of the unit itself. Granted, I live in California and it doesn't rain much -- and it's only been 8 months now -- we'll see if it can withstand the year.
