A friend bought one last year. Its a decent grill if you can get it cheap. Aside from the obvious thinner metal here are the biggest issues that I can see.
1. Air intake adjusment might as well not even be there. All the way closed still lets quite a bit of air in.
2. Not the best lid to bowl fit.
3. The bars on the coal grate are spaced too far apart. After they burn for a while they fall through and the fire goes out if left unattended.
Still, even with those correctable issues its a lot of grate space for the price.
