I have the BD Squall, a three person mountaineering tent. So, not the tent you're looking at, but in terms of BD tent quality, I can say (I also have a Hubba-Hubba and Mutha-Hubba and owned a Fury and MicroZoid) that so far the tent seems to be of at least the same quality as MSR and based on my experiences so far with BD tents, I'd buy another.
One thing about my Squall is that the BD weight listed as "minimum weight" was SPOT ON for the tent, fly, poles and pegs. I've found that MSR seems to understate their weights a bit. The Mutha Hubba is close to 200g heavier than the listed weight.
