First, the good. The color is nice, it was the deeper color of brown that I was hoping for, rather than the primary brown shown in the photo. The cover seems sturdy enough. If you are doing 15 minute sits, this would be fine.
Now, the actual specs of the thing. It is small. If you are over 5'5", this is not a cushion for you. It is not a very thick cushion, so taking it on retreat would be a very bad idea. However, it is light, so traveling with it would be fine. The interior is uneven in places.
I bought this cushion as a seat to put in front of a low desk and not for sitting. I would not recommend it for actual zazen practice for any extended period of time. I can tell from experience that this cushion is going to flatten out very quickly.
In this case, you're getting what you're paying for. If you're going for serious practice, I would suggest DharmaCrafts.
Additional note: Unable to use now, as once I removed my zafu cushion from the zabuton to clean it, my cat claimed it as his favorite place to sleep. Immediately, the fabric became tabby colored fur-coated, and washing the cover didn't quite remove the fur. Guess I'll have to get another for me to use!
One thing to pay attention to before ordering: at 24" x 24", this zabuton is probably smaller than the ones you've sat on at your a temple or meditation center. Those are generally 30" square, 30" x 36", or 36" square. This is plenty big for home practice, but if you order expecting what you've seen at your local zendo, you may be disappointed.
