Used this tent over weekend of 29-30 March on the east coast of England.
First time using this tent and it took me about 20-25 minutes to put up, I think this could only be put up in ten minutes if you had no wind/rain, the guy-lines weren't tied in stupid knots in the manufacturing process that you can't undo and the inner and groundsheet had already been attached to the fly-sheet.
The porch area is big enough to store all the things you bring with you on a camping trip and seated two people and a table comfortably, the sleeping area is bigger still with big pockets on either side for handy storage and accomodated a double air-bed with plenty of space to spare, this tent would be ideal for a small family but even more comfortable for two people.
Not a great tent for windy conditions, we had winds of about 15 mph and at one point I had to sit in one corner and prop the tent up with my head as the wind probably would have snapped the poles otherwise. WInds upwards of 20 mph or more and this tent will most likely cave in. One of the poles had slightly splintered in the wind that we had.
Overall, this is a decent tent, very spacious (although you can't really stand up in any part of it unless you are 5" 1'), loads of storage and easy to put up.
