I wasn't looking for a heavy duty set to last forever. I needed an easy-to-assemble, easy-to-move-around set for the next two or three years. However, I also needed something that will be sturdy enough for regular use, and this is. So I think this will be perfect.
It wasn't the easiest thing I've ever assembled, but it wasn't bad. One wonderful advantage is that every single bolt, washer and screw cover was in the set. No need to run out to the hardware store or wait two to four weeks for the company to send missing parts. All parts are clearly marked, and the instructions are clear enough with good diagrams. Things would have gone much faster, however, if the directions had been more specific on just how loose the chair pieces had to be in the beginning to be able to screw the arms in properly. I recommend just getting the screws firmly seated and then waiting until arms are in place before tightening anything. The other pieces are a breeze.
I'm a bit concerned about how well the cushions will wear. The covers are thin for outdoor fabric. I am certain they'll have to come in out of the rain. Then again, for the price, I can certainly afford to buy or make better cushion covers.
The bottom line is, if you want something to last for years and years, this probably isn't what you're looking for. But it's a great set for anyone who needs something sturdy but lightweight for now.
