Thought this looked like a good deal for £30 delivered

In Blacks sale (Ultimate Outdoors sister company) it is currently £40 + £4.95 delivery.

Hydrostatic head (measure of how waterproof it is) is 2000 which is fairly standard for a budget tent but by no means terrible (1500 and above classes as "waterproof")

Weighs less than 3kg so reasonably lightweight and nice colour to blend in surroundings if wild camping.

**33 sold in last 24 hours and 8 currently avail though they may re-list**
EDIT: they seem to be re-listing when it goes down to the last few

Hard to argue for that money... for anyone thinking of doing real distance while carrying a tent but who wants to stay on a budget might want to consider something like the Naturehike Cloudup from Aliexpress. Still cheap at £70ish, but half the weight (1.5kg saved is a big deal when hiking!).

Yes agreed but buy a better groundsheet and cut to the right size
People happily spend £100 in a reasonable hotel for one night. So for me something like this is just a waste of £30. I would rather add that to the cost on 1 night in a hotel and get something that will last a few years and handle unpredictable UK weather.

On the few occasions I've had to spend more than £100 on a hotel room I've def not been happy about it! I take your point but I don't think there's any reason to assume this wouldn't last a few years if looked after properly. People (I'm not saying you) often have a negative perception of budget tents due to the behaviour of idiots at festivals. I agree that in some cases cheap tents are genuinely awful (ie the single skin £20 pop up ones) but I think this is a good step up from that and has pretty decent reviews all round.
Wouldn't class 3kg as reasonably lightweight. Agree, the Naturehike is a better alternative, as long as you're not over 6'.

It's more than double the cost though so not really a direct alternative... You're not going to get a decent sub 2.5kg weight tent for this money....3kg (2.9kg to be precise) is reasonably lightweight if you're going on a weekend trip and have an average amount of stuff with you

Yup, 3kg for a tent is too much if you want to hike or travel with it. I picked up a cheap 2 man tent in South Africa for around this price and whilst basic, it was perfectly acceptable, weighed 2kg and survived in the rain without letting in any (and one day dumped a LOT of rain in a massive storm in Zimbawe).

I had a look at those tents on Aliexpress and they look great, but I dont think I'm gonna rush to buy a new one just yet.
