I have a Bud Box Pro white lined tent and have used it for roughly 18 months now - no complaints and quite reasonably priced too.

Went for the Green Cube in the end, I managed to get a 1.2 for £137 delivered, the 1m was about £30 more :wacko:

 

Now I just have to re-plan my bedroom layout lol but on the bright side I can easily fit two 315 reflectors in there and will have plenty of height to play with.

 

Thanks for all the help guys, I might have bought the gorilla tent otherwise which is what my local store stocks, but reviews are not good, especially on the quality of the zip which as you all know is one of the most important bits!

Mine had one pinhole and the zips are still light tight. The pink poles are an 'interesting' choice though!

 

you wouldn't notice the pink poles if your using Led lighting  lol

I have a bud box pro, it's well made but gimmicky at the same time... for whatever reason they thought a stupid little green viewing window was better than a door on the right side. I've looked through that window once! It's a pain in the arse to access any plants on the right hand side. The socks are also weirdly placed and the doors on each end are totally pointless. These guys have been making tents for years too, you'd think they would know what they're doing by now.

Well it seems well made, the poles while quite strong didn`t give the rigidity I`ve had with other tents but now it`s up and running I`m quite happy with it. Like other`s have said it`s got things in silly places but a bit of jiggery pokery and no real problems have been caused yet. I found it a dream to get the cover on, I put it on the wrong way round for access but it was super easy to turn it around.

 

My only issue is the lack of anything significant to bolt the controls too, they must know there`s a shit load of electrics to go in and need housing, but I got an old book shelf and drilled a couple of holes and tied it to a top bar and secured everything to that.

Not really mate, I ain`t house proud but I don`t want to be making more decoration work tbh, any way it`s done now, I`ll just get some metal clip to secure the board better, that will be fine.

 

I quite enjoy putting up a new tent and fitting it out, shame I can`t make a living out of supply and fitting

I didn`t notice it at first but now you mention it I had another look and the velcro noise will be more than enough to stop me opening it at night when I will want to look the most, the zip is noisy enough, shame they can`t come up with another fastener.

if you hang the electrics outside the tent & you had to dismantle things in a hurry, all you'd be left with is a few holes to fill, two wooden batten screwed to the wall horizontally & the board screws onto the batton's.

It would be very unlikely mate, I "own" my gaff and don`t have many visitors who go in that room.
