I got this weight bench set for my husband for Christmas. He's only had it for a few weeks, but so far he really likes it. I can't speak for the durability of this set, but the quality seems good for the price point.
It took us between one and two hours to put it together. We are pretty handy and have decent tools. A good wrench set helps. Assembly is definitely a project, with lots of washers and bolts. Speaking of washers, it came with five fewer than we needed, but we had some extras at the house, so we were able to make it work.
The bar is relatively light and lighter-duty than a standard bar that you would find at a gym, but it is sufficient for the weights that came with the set. It is very nice that there is an apparatus for leg exercises on a bench at this price point.
A lot of other reviews cautioned that this bench is too small and has too low of a weight limit. I guess that all depends. My husband is about 5'5" and 160 lb. The bench is more than large enough for him to comfortably work out on, and the 300 lb weights and person limit is not an issue. If you're 5'10" or taller or weigh 200 lb or more, this is probably not the set for you.
