Ordered one from B&Q two years ago and found it very easy to assemble. Was somewhat surprised by how thin the polycarbonate glazing actually was but it has turned out to be very durable, especially given the fact we live behind a football pitch. The only real problem I encountered when assembling the greenhouse was that the polycarbonate windows would not fit at first, however, I found that loosening all of the bolts holding it together, then fitting the windows allowed you to perfectly square the frame up before re-tightening the nuts and bolts.
The glazing does get quite grotty after a season however, but a quick wash with Jeyes Fluid soon cleans things up. One thing I would recommend though is an auto-vent. You can get the purpose built Palram auto-vent from B&Q now though, but I found that the fixing screws weren't long enough and the instructions were sketchy at best. The previous auto-vent though was even harder to fit onto the non-standard window frame.
