Quite poor internal space with side walls that taper inwards, plus very limited vestbule space. That Razorback tent has the added delight of a side entry that will flood your gear if you open the door when it's raining outside
The general gear purchasing mantra applies here. Cheap - light - quality; choose any two.
The tents with lateral hoops (like my Exped Vela 1 and the Hilleberg Akto) give more useful space inside with vertical side walls, a good sized vestibule, and generally allow a sheltered entry.
