This is a great platform to start off with because of the great value. I was able to assemble it myself after buying the proper mounting hardware (see photos that I have added). Don't expect IKEA-like instructions to show you step by step assembly, but if you were good with legos as a kid, you can look at the photos and video and figure it out. It really helps to have an impact drill to drive those large screws into the studs!
The platform comes with a U type swivel which is great for "Boxing" style speed bagging hitting from the front. If you are into "Bible" boxing as seen on this DVD: TITLE Speed Bag Bible (DVD), then you might want to consider a ball swivel or a higher grade swivel. I also bought the TITLE Speed Bag Bible (Book), but haven't read it yet.
I am learning by trying one new technique each week because I think it is fun and challenging. I done a bit of MMA style fighting and speed bagging in general should help with your timing and upper arm strength to keep your arms up. But you'll find that all kinds of folks from all ages; boys and girls, picking up this fun activity. If you search for the top Speed Bag forum online, you'll find a community of really helpful people.
From a novice to another, I hope this video helps you make the decision of buying this platform.
I used white lithium grease to reduce the squeaking of the swivel, just be sure to wipe off the excess.
Add a 50lb bag of play sand (less than $6 from your local hardware store) to dampen the noise.
Practice and get good with what you've got, you can upgrade the swivel or get a smaller bag when you improve.
Invest in a good bag, start off with a large one to help with timing.
Invest in good hand protection, missing a lot can cut up your hands with the wrong bag, and can discourage you. Buy M-Tape (at your local sports store), Everlast EverGel Hand Wraps,or properly use some Everlast Hand Wraps.
Update: April 18, 2014
I replaced the swivel with a Powermill swivel bag with a Cleto Reyes:

However, after mounting it into some studs and putting up a Cleto Reyes small bag, the vibration and noise is actually less than I thought. It is a little more solid with a couple pounds on top, but I don't feel the need for a full 40-60lbs of sandbag or similar. May just be that the impacts are less severe with the small and well-built bag. It's also nice that the bag is soft enough to use without wraps.
All in all, happy with the purchase, but I'll be making DIY upgrades as I go along to improve on the base design. This is a perfect starting place though.
