I ordered a Hydro Lab and it came yesterday 120/120/180 as I was restricted to height in the building. I have nothing to compare this tent with but it does seem to be good quality throughout. It took around 30 minutes or less to put together, was real easy, one man job.
All poles and brackets are metal, zips very strong, fabric heavy and well designed. I would imagine if the poles were weak they would fail when initially erecting the tent as it is a little bit of a fight getting the tent onto the poles if you don't have the height to turn the tent on its side.
Called the guys at Hydro Labs before I bought it and they were very helpful.
The Hydro is a bit more expensive than the ebay ones so I presume better quality but as I mentioned I have no other tent to compare this one to.
