It is far from difficult to assemble. I had a helping hand just because I thought I would need it and took maybe 30 mins. There was no struggle to stretch as others mentioned. Just read and follow the instructions and do it the way they say to do it and it works quite well.
I have not see any other screens in person, but I would venture to guess you get what you pay for.
