Hard to beat this tent for price and value...

I just got back from using this tent while backpacking in Pt. Reyes National Seashore in northern California. You've read most of the reviews by now, most of which are favorable and I completely agree. For me, the only real negative is the lack of a footprint/groundcloth. There isn't even one made for this, so you'll need to find one on your own. What worked for me was the RE Mountain 3 footprint, if you're still in the market. Some of the issues I've seen appear to be more of preference, than actual flaws with the tent.

Lots of positives i found during this trip... lightweight, two doors makes a huge difference, sets up in 5 minutes with two people (really), good quality materials, two good size vestibules so you can easily leave things outside, but covered, without them being exposed to the elements like shoes/boots, good ventilation, in addition to the vestibules each having zippers, it's a nice touch to also have velcro closures, lots of rings on top for holding lamps/lanterns or an attic, pockets on the inside. And at 46" at the peak, it's on par with most of the other three person tents out there costing way more.

While it is a bit cramped for three, it can fit three. The price is great and most of us probably found a promo code to have this discounted even further. You'd be hard pressed to find a good quality three person tent at this price. With shipping and tax, I paid less than $160usd.
