Recommendations?  Better than the $100 ones at dicks or Walmart.  Not the $900 online.

+1 for eurmax.com

Even their cheapest one is commercial level.

Second one would be the Z-shade commercial sold at samsclub

We went with the Vitabri from eCanopy. We were looking for a waterproof 10x20 with the fast fold design for easy/quick setup (not a bunch of poles and pieces). All corner/joints are user replaceable with a cheap rivet tool. We use 50lb shot bags on each corner and havent had an issue with wind yet after 30+ uses.

I like my 8x8 black Eurmax.  I think I may add some a shade cloth side or two.

Sam's Club seems to have gone back to EZ-UP instead of Z-Shade. I picked one up yesterday, I'll find out next week if it'll be durable enough.

Itíll probably depend on which consumer level it was built for.  I had a $200 Amazon tent destroyed in about 3 days but have had excellent luck with my current EZ-UP.  I think I paid around $600 for it give or take (10x15 Eclipse model).

It says "Commercial" on the box, but I'll find out how true that statement is soon enough. It was at the same $200 price point as the EZ-UP's sold at Sam's 10 years ago, but I'm guessing it's not the same quality. I'm certain that it won't hold up as well as the $600 canopies do. I'll let you know if it proves me wrong!

Given I live and gig in the wind surfing capital of the world...  I stand by KD.  I've seen too many easy-ups in the dumpster as a mangled mess.  One of them mine... Do spec it with the wind relief if you like me deal with high winds.

Another vote for Euromax.  My wife bought one two years for use as a vendor at craft festivals.  I am very impressed with it for the price and she can get it up and down by herself.  It survived at least one storm that flattened quite a few other tents.  When the ez-up I have wears out, I will be getting one for myself.

Another vote for 8x8 Eurmax.  Besides being straight-legged and sturdy, at reasonable cost you can buy replacement tops in many different colors.

FWIW, looks like a price drop on the Eurmax at Amazon:
