I didn't have couple thousand to spare for acoustic panels, (which are by the way the best thing you can ave in a home studio) so I go this and... it's great. I move around a lot and rarely stay in the same country more than 2-3 years so acoustic treatment with all the mounting and travelling is not the option for me. The thing is rather heavy but considering its size and robust structure its perfectly understandable. It absorbs well however you can still get reflections from behind your source (or at least in my case a singer) so hang up a duvette or a single acoustic panel and you're set! The thing comes packaged in pieces but its really easy to assemble.
