I was a little nervous buying a trampoline without having seen it, but this was a real bargain. The construction is suitably sturdy (there was one beam that had been a little compressed and wouldn't slot together, but I fixed that simply in seconds) and the instructions were comprehensive, if the translation from German were not the best, and the diagrams are good. It took about an hour and a half to construct it, and then the children had a field day.
The protective net keeps the children well away from the springs and the upright poles. The diameter is really 2.44 metres, so a reasonable size, but not gigantic (we didn't really have a clue what 8 feet really meant). The bounce is excellent and the quality appears really good. The entire pack weighs over 40kg, but it doesn't seem heavy for what there is. The instructions do say you should get two people to move it, which is reasonable.

I bought this in 2012, summer, hoping to set it up that year. But it rained so much ... I couldn't find a dry time when I was at home.
So, I did it today. It took me about 2 hours, by myself. Nothing difficult about it. My 2 daughters are playing games on it now.
I bought this to replace a plum trampoline of the same size which lasted 3 or 4 years. The netting on that tramp tore on the first day and we had to get a replacement. And then we had to get another.
This trampoline's netting seems stronger. And the entry-way is definitely better designed - stronger and easier to use.
I'll update this review if there are any other problems.
