To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The picture gives the impression that it is all plastic. The arms are actually metal and the unit is very solid indeed. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality and sturdiness. It was also packed really well, with a bubble wrap covering and zip lock bag inside a box! Excessive, perhaps, but certainly well presented and safe from the possibility of postal related damage. What about the functionality of it? Unfortunately, I'm yet to field test it due to lockdown restrictions. When I'm free to roam again, I'll update these comments accordingly. So far though, I'm impressed. I have no idea what the category of "warmth" is (one of the rating fields offered by Amazon) but I've given it five stars for that anyway. :) Yes, it was very warm. Mmm...
The product is solid for its price. It does what it suppose to do. However, when you mount it on any device make sure that the weigh is orientated in a way that it will tighten the base screw as the arms turn from gravity. I have had my LED light almost broke by not doing so.
I was delighted to find that this product was exactly what I envisaged as I ordered it. Versatile, sturdy and value for money, I have identified similar products from the same store which I shall order straight away based on this good experience.
