I got one of these today and as it was so sunny I put it up. It's pretty easy to put up and I had it up, pegged and guy roped in undeer 10 mins single handed. With help and a bit of practice this will easily come down to under 5 mins.
Putting it away wasn't too bad and probably took less time than putting it up although there is a knack to it. The instructions are sewn into the tent cover and if you follow them you should have no probs (my wife didn't recon she would be able to do it herself. I think she might). You roll the poles into the bag while pushing them down, using the ground to keep the poles bent.
For a weekend tent or for an overnight stay on a long trip I don't think you could go far wrong with this. We will be sleeping 2 adults and 3 kids ( 2 teenagers) in it and it looks like there's plenty of space
