Amazon.com Basketball System Buying Guide
With the high-quality construction of many portable basketball systems, turning your driveway into a basketball court can be as simple as hooking up your garden hose. But while a portable system may ultimately be your best choice, there are reasons you may want to consider an in-ground or wall-mount system before you decide.

In-Ground Systems
In-ground systems are permanently cemented into the ground--either via a bolt mounting kit or directly into the ground--and are generally more rigid and take up less space than portables. In-ground systems often require that you hire a professional to complete the task, but when the cement dries you'll have a hoop that can take punishing dunks with ease.

Many in-ground systems are height-adjustable, include removable post features that let you take the system down for off-season storage, and feature heavy-duty break-away rims. You'll also want to research the adjustable mechanisms on the systems, as there are several types to choose from. Some feature a counter-balance spring that lets you perform easy, one-hand adjustments while others may feature a sturdy, pneumatic system.

Wall-Mount Systems
Wall-mount systems can be mounted to the side of a house, a tall retaining wall, or a garage. Generally sturdier than portables, wall-mounts have the added advantage of optimizing your existing ground space for the court, since you won't take any space up with the base or pole. Not all systems include the necessary hardware, so make certain you add a mounting kit to your list.

Portable Systems
Portable systems require minimal installation and offer ultimate convenience. These systems generally feature a base that can be filled with sand or water to stabilize them and include wheels for portability. Although they are not as sturdy as in-ground or wall-mounted hoops, portables are simple to set up and can often be folded for convenient storage.

Backboard Considerations
Regardless of which system you choose, you'll want to brush up on Backboards 101. Most residential systems feature backboards made of acrylic, fiberglass, graphite, or various other composite materials. While clear acrylic gives the professional look and feel of glass, it is not as rigid as fiberglass or graphite. Some systems may offer steel or aluminum backboards, which are virtually vandal resistant, but don't offer the true rebounding action.

The regulation size of an NBA backboard is 72 inches wide and 42 inches high. Most portable hoops are 42 or 44 inches wide and 36 inches tall. In-ground systems tend to be a bit larger, with 54-inch and 60-inch widths being the most popular. While rectangular shaped backboards provide more bank shot opportunities, they are generally more expensive than the streamlined fan-shaped board.

I took my time researching a B-ball system, checking with the neighbors to see what they had, online reviews and the sort all the time vigilant for a sale. Fortunately when this system dropped in price I had at least decided on a Lifetime system. The big seller for us is the adjustable technology used. It's a squeeze trigger that allows the backboard to glide up or down. It does take some time to put together but it's easy to do if you follow the instructions. You'll have many hours of enjoyment.

The title of this review says it all. While we're very happy with the finished product; it was JOKE to put together. I don't mean the funny kind, either! I had two buddies help and after 6 hours, we finally managed to finish it. Part of the problem is that the instructions are vague and the drawings too small. The other problem that we ran into was that the instructions had been mangled by the large parts in the box and we were actually missing a few pages. We found them in the box after making several mistakes and having to take apart and reassemble several sections two and three times.

We actually used the Chinese instructions after that as we found the pictures to be much more clear and detailed.

That said, we are very happy with the final result. We feel it's super easy to adjust the height and I don't feel it wobbles much at all (as another reviewer commented). It does definitely have MADE IN CHINA stickers all over it, and is not made in the USA (again, as another reviewer mentioned). For what we paid, I feel it's a good value and the kids and I had a lot of fun with it today already.

The assembly process could be SO much easier with clear instructions!

Believe it or not, we had 5 people over to put this together. Only a couple at a time could gather around the instructions, and actually do the putting together, because you had to put it together in series, step by step. It looks really good, and is fun for my daughter and all the neighborhood kids. It is very easy for an adult to raise it up and down, and not quite so easy for the little ones. On the negative side, the kids don't mind, but man does it wobble anytime the ball hits it. I was surprised by that. For some reason, I thought it was Made in the USA when I made the purchase, but it most defititely is MADE IN CHINA, and says so all over the product.

I read other reviews commenting on the difficulties assembling and building this unit. Because of this I took a very conservative and careful approach yet still had considerable problems. The instructions are not clear enough to avoid mistakes. I made a considerable mistake on the hoop assembly and had to order additional parts from the manufacturer. They were very cooperative and shipped the correct parts quickly. Do not fasten or secure any part of this until you read, re-read and again the instructions and especially the diagrams. Additionally, this assembly takes two adults as is suggested by the manufacturer. I tried to do as much as possible by myself which worked out fine; 60% can be completed solo; the balance must be with two adults without question.
Once completed this hoop system is great. I have it filled with water on a level concrete surface for my son to play. The height adjustment is a nice two grip handle you squeeze to adjust up or down and let go to secure in position. It is hydraulic and fairly easy to make the adjustments. Only the handle squeeze takes a bit of strength but it does not get away from you. Also the placement of the height sticker is easy to position and read with the handle.
The backboard is light weight plastic thus it will not have the solid rebound effect of the real deal. If this was specification glass it would weigh too much for any portable system. If you have to have this then get a built in unit with anchor templates, concrete and heavy steel pipe column. So rather than spending $350, a system like this will cost you at least five times this. If you are considering a portable Basketball system, I highly recommend this unit. My one star deduction was due to the difficult assembly instructions and resulting mistakes. If the manufacturer improves this, it is a five star product.

I have had the basket installed for 2 weeks now. Installation was pretty easy (took 2-3 hours with 2 men). The build quality is excellent. I was missing to minor pieces but Lifetime support was friendly and sent them to me very quickly. My 4 year old son and I are having a blast together. It is extremely easy to adjust the hight. I would recommend this product especially because it is made in the USA (keep jobs at home).

This is a nice basketball goal. It is sturdy and easy to adjust the height. Assembly was time consuming (around 2 hours) and once the base is filled, it is difficult to relocate. Get it together, put it where you want it, and enjoy from that point on!

I ordered one of these and, when it arrived and before I assembled it, I examined the backboard. It seemed thin and without much firmness, so I tested the backboard with a basketball. Good thing I did because the ball basically fell against a dead surface and the backboard vibrated like a trampoline, NOT at all like a backboard should!.

So I promptly sent it back.

Then, I visited 4 local sporting good stores (all national or local chains)to see what they had in stock and test the backboards of the display models. What I found was that ALL the Lifetime backboards are basically junk as are many of it's competitors. I am still looking for a portable system with the firm backboard like my old one (Spalding) but have not found it yet. Will keep searching.

STRONG ADVICE -- Go to a sporting goods store and throw a basketball against the backboards of the models on display. You'll see what I mean.
