Surprisingly, I love it too! He played with it for almost 20 minutes before I gave in and started playing also; he was having so much fun, I had to join.
The hoop has two wide hooks to hang over a door, but they're thin enough to close the door without creating any scuffs against the door frame. It's easy to put on the door and remove without creating any damage. In terms of height, I'm 5'8, so once it was hanging on the door, the rim was right above my head with the net coming down to eye-level.
If you have people/kids who aren't at a height which allows them to dunk the basketball, then you won't deal with much noise. If you have a childish, spirited husband like mine who wants to dunk the ball constantly or chuck the ball with all his might, then the backboard will bounce and reverberate against the door VERY loudly. The backboard has a black cover along the bottom of the board (which you see in the product photos), and that prevents any damage to the door caused by overzealous shooters.
The ball is a perfect size; with a lot of these types of products, the ball is always really small, but this one is large enough where you have to use your whole hand to hold it (and my German Shepherd couldn't get his mouth around it to run off with.) It doesn't have much bounce to it, so you won't have to chase after it much after each shot.
We both love this product, and I can't recommend it enough for both kids and adults with the playful attitude of a child.
Got it out of the box and was a bit frustrated by the fact that it wouldn't screw together properly. Thought about returning it, but instead went to the box of nails and screws and found some washers to fill in the gap. Kit does not come with washers and they are not part of the instructions but it will not go together securely without them. (I'll include pictures so you can see the gap from the supplied screw and how I filled that with a washer)
Also, does not come with ball inflation adapter so you'll need to get that as the ball comes flat. Speaking of the ball, it's an outdoor ball in my opinion so we are using a nerf ball. It's soft and quiet. Still get some banging around from the board but shooting like this was a childhood favorite of mine so I know my kid(s) will love it once they get a little older. At 3yo, my oldest can't really get the ball up high enough with this hanging from a door.
