This is where I get to the "for the most part" of my review headline. Over this past weekend, due to the base slowly losing it's gel from evaporation, the hoop fell over. Once it was set back upright, I came home from work and noticed the tilt in the backboard that most likely came from tipping over due to lack of gel in the base. The "tilt" is slight but it is still noticeable... from near where the rim is on the backboard up to the top of the backboard it goes forward just a bit. The bad part of this is that there's really no way of resetting the backboard to make it (and keep it) straight since the backboard is balanced by 2 wing bars that extend from near the rim on the back of the backboard up and outward towards the top corners. This means any attempts to reset those wing bars would only corrupt their integrity even more and risk further damage.
Bottom line: good basketball hoop, just make sure you periodically check the base gel (or water... or if you get sand obviously evaporation wouldn't be an issue but from deploying to Iraq for a year I just couldn't deal with the mess of more sand on a daily basis--your choice though).
Update 12/11/17 - reordered and it’s missing the cap that goes on the bottom of the base. This time instead of shipping whole unit back I called lifetime and they will send the cap to me. However that will take 5 business days so now I have to cancel/reschedule my installation date. So disappointing.
Arrived in safely via UPS. Everything was in the package, no missing hardware. Instructions are excellent including details about which bag of hardware (of 3) to open for each step. Though it calls for a 3/8 and 1/2" closed end wrench, things will go faster if you also have a ratchet and bits to use as a driver. Allen keys are included. You'll need a Phillips and flat screwdriver and a wooden board or block of wood. Went with the hydrophilic gel + water instead of sand. Took about 90 minutes with a teen helping. Some reviews mention adjusting height is difficult. It does require tilting the board toward you working against the weight of the base. But, this isn't something you're going to do every weekend. We wanted it at 10' so it was a non-issue.
Performance is pretty good considering the cost. On the upside, the frame and backboard are reasonably sturdy. Negatives are that there is some 'give' on unintentional (or intentional) banks, especially from 3-point range. So shots that would probably bounce too hard to have a chance lose some heat and wind up going in. But, shots that hit the front and back iron behave about how they should on a gym hoop. The backboard is on the small side but perfectly adequate. There is no snap-back on the rim, so if you're looking to dunk, step up to a fancier system.
UPDATE: Still one of the most used items we have purchased for the kids. Used everyday, and is still in awesome shape.

Relatively easy to install.
Work as expected, the board is a bit bouncy, but for the price it's perfect. The adjustable height will make it last a long time.
