        This is an effective stand for internal use, like a home studio, which is where I use it. If I were looking for a solution for on-the-road I might want something a little more robust. One review said it was troublesome to move around but I do that pretty regularly with no issues. It's quite solid, but lightweight, which is great.

        The clasp holding the boom arm works quite well - this is the most vulnerable spot, I think, and I'll keep my eye on it. I use this with the Blue Yeti microphone and have attached a pop filter to the arm as well, which makes the extended boom pretty heavy. I try to take the strain off the boom clasp by dangling a weight on the other end of the arm - so far so good, but I wish I could balance it more precisely so I could lift the arm when needed without having to loosen the clasp so much. [ For that functionality I probably should have looked at a different solution :-) ]

        Decent Mic-stand for the price

        Overall a decent mic-stand for the price. It could be a bit more stable. However, it is very versatile for the static interviews that I tend to shoot the most.

                      A great deal for stand plus boom arm, though as one might expect, it isn't the most robust piece of gear. Still, works well to support a shotgun mic. Boom arm stays in place if you give it a good twist to tighten it. Wouldn't dare to twist too hard for fear of damaging the item . . . but don't think I need to twist it very hard. A light counterweight should be all that's needed if indeed the boom arm starts slipping with age and use.

                      4 stars because it's inexpensive and does the job; 5 stars would mean full confidence and no fears of breakage or malfunction.

                                      This stand was easy to assemble and I didn't even need the instructions. I mounted my Blue Yeti microphone and it is tightly and securely in place. I gave it four stars because I think the stand is too lightweight, and if I lift it to move it, it might come apart. Part of the stand came off when I lifted it to move it near my computer, so I'm not moving it much anymore. If you don't move it, it'll serve you fantastically.

                                      In terms of height, the stand is nice and high enough to accommodate a person 6'2" without compromise.

                                            This stand is paired with the Audio-Technica AT2035 Microphone which weighs 14.2 ounces, plus the shockmount, pop filter and cable. Yes, it can support the weight of the mic when the boom arm is extended about 20-24 inches, and angled down to allow its use while seated.

                                                These are used for wired mics in stage performances.
                                                They do the job securely and are NOT typical of stands in this price range. They are heavy enough to prevent tilt in any configuration. Good construction out of solid materials.

Its metal construction and refined joints place it an echelon or two up the quality scale. However, it is light and needs weights if being used outside. I use this for internal sound recording and voiceovers, as well as interviews.

                                                                          This is very good stand. I have 2 mic's hooked up to it. It does a pretty good job. I just have to position it well so it does not tip over.Everything else worked as expected. This is much better product than the one I ordered at @ for a similar amount of money.
