I think they are doing well to remember how much they paid. I only got mine around 10 years ago, and can't recall how much a paid. I feel a little bit forgetful in comparison....
Different make/model (Globel Lotus 10' x 19' Metal Workshop, £950) built last year but similar materials, I use it as a gym. I poured a concrete base and raised the whole shed up on a perimeter line of concrete blocks. Very sturdy and so far, rust free. Condensation not an issue though I would 100% recommend putting a damp proof layer both below and above the concrete base, helped so much. I also found that these shed kits tend to recommend being assembled without over tightening the screws/bolts. We found that the final few roof panels didn't align 100% because of the base being slightly off and by keeping the rest of the roof panels slightly loose during the construction, you can wiggle it around a bit. Once that was done, can tighten as much as you'd like. I'd also recommend upgrading the plastic washers you get for the roof screws, a lot of mine have fractured after a year so I'm having to put some sealant around the screws. Not a big issue but replacing with rubber washers would have helped from day 1
Bought a similar one last year (not quite as big), absolutely brilliant. Took best part of a day to assemble, erected on a purpose made concrete base. So far it’s withstood everything Mother Nature has thrown at it. I used coach bolts to secure it into the base. No leaks or rust so far
Metel sheds rust and wooden sheds rot but you can delay the inevitable by good preparation when putting them up and regular maintenance. As far as I know plastic sheds fade and get brittle / break due to the sun and there is little you can do. There may be some sort of UV blocker you can apply to slow down the effects of the sun. I prefer a wooden shed as you can replace parts yourself.

As others have also said, no rust issues. Had mine for over 8 years now. Get the prep right and reduce moisture penetration from the ground and you have nothing to worry about.
regarding the rust - just wait a few years & see if your opinion changes
I have all three types metal, plastic & wooden sheds metal types is the only one I would never have again - its not so much the initial hassle in putting it up which takes at least twice as long & is generally a pain in th backside... its more to do with a) the huge amount of condensation on the underside of the roof i.e. do not put anything in a metal shed that might be damaged by getting wet from the condensation dripping from the roof (so no electrical items) b) after a few years or the shed roof started to rust despite being galvanised & so will require regular maitenance to stop it from getting holes in it - maybe some metal sheds are better quality but thats what happened to mine c) the sheet metal is paper thin & so probably provides the least amount of security - wood isnt much better though as you can easily pry off wooden panels Plastic sheds are by far the best as far as Im concerned & easily worth the extra cost
It really needs two laymen and about 10/12 hours - I always end up drilling the last few holes
Can't say that I've had any rust issues at all. Yes it's a pain to put up and will realistically take 2 people 2 days but I think these are far superior to the lap wooden sheds! Just think of it as a man size Meccano! X)

Going to buy three sheds, set them in the garden and let as a 1star London accommodation. My answer to London property crisis!
The warranty covers rot, not warping
We just brought a shed from these people. Quality is appalling, and looks very cheap. panels all warped and mouldy, floor really thin, roof is horrendous to fit and very flimsy. If it lasts as long as the warranty says it'll be a minor miracle! Buyer beware!
Luckily this one comes with a 10 year warranty

COLD COLD COLD! I saw the pic but no chance after seeing baseless legal threats. @shire after 70 years its maybe time to outsource your customer relations department!
This response is for CAMBSGIRL: Thank you very much for the retraction, here at Shire it is much appreciated and we would confirm that this will indeed be the end of the matter. For other Customers: We employ more than a hundred people in the UK and have been a family business for more than 70 years. We supply many thousands of buildings each month to all points in the UK, regrettably with this huge volume a building might on occasion be incomplete or damaged, for this we sincerely apologise but we will always do all we can to rectify the situation. The Shire customer service team can be reached on 01945 465295 for any outstanding issues. (thankyou “Ilovetoshop” and others for their kind comments)
I was looking at getting one but 'no way Pedro' after threatening a forum user with legal action. Extreme cold :(
There was a place recommended on here ages ago called north street sheds, I only remeber as I bookmarked the address at the time.
Again sorry to hijack but, can anyone recommend a decent up standing shed supplier please, i wont be buying from these jokers...

Overlap Security Shed £134.95 @ Shedstore£134.95
seen this online, thought this was cracking deal ;) hey, save a shed load ;) ;) 5'11 x 3'10 (1.80x1.16m)+++•FREE Delivery*
I wouldn't be so sure; satisfied customers rarely seek out such sites (which are full of vitriol); some people buy a cheap shed and expect a mansion. This is a cheap shed. But a CHEAP cheap shed. You wouldn't be able to buy the wood for £134.95.
It seems that the adverse comments were well justified; http://www.reviewcentre.com/Sheds-and-Storage/Shed-Store-www-shedstore-co-uk-reviews_1468796
Amazed anyone bothers to post anything on this site due to all negative comments
Don't be silly haters. If you have a bike, this shed will be enough for the thieves to go steal one from the hater next door. My neighbour has a similar one, and he's the only guy around here who hasn't had his bike nicked. We don't all need fort knox - go pick on someone with your own IQ, leave the OP alone. It''s a good deal.

8' x 8' Summerhouse £449.95 @ Shedstore£449.95
Saw a similar summerhouse earlier but this is the larger version with a bigger discount
No, and best not to fully enclose a jacuzzi in a small shed. Condensation problems will be dreadful.
I doubt someone from Swansea has £3000 to spend on a whim (unless u r called Michu or Laudrup) but if your story checks out ....Get a tradesmen to build you a structure for it!
that's what my brain was telling me, I was hoping it was wrong. ****. spent 3k on a jacuzzi and need something to go over it since Swansea is officially the wettest city in UK. I flaming hate the bloody rain.
no it wont because 2m x 2m is 4m squared, this building is not 4m squared. so you will need to remove the front end of the shed or jacuzzi to get it fit in.
