Pros: A pretty well built unit, as it's entirely made of steel. Not so strong that you'd want to jump up and down on it, but you won't have to worry about plastic parts cracking and breaking. This unit should last multiple lifetimes.
Cons: Lacking in features, because the ones that are there weren't well executed.
1. Height adjustment only allows you to raise the unit about 3/4 inch. Such a small amount that it's almost not worth being there. It works for me (I'm 6ft tall), but for someone with shorter legs it may not raise high enough. They should’ve added a 2nd adjustment for better flexibility. 2. Tilt adjustment is useless. The platform is attached to the base with 2 bolts, which act as an axle. I tightened them almost to the point of stripping, but it won't hold the platform in place. It always rocks down to the full angle towards me as soon as I put my feet on it; and it's impossible to keep it flat, which is what I want. 3. Edges are exposed rough metal, that can cut your feet or damage shoes. I got some vinyl door edge guard from a local auto parts store, and wrapped it around the edges. That works really well, but it should already be there. This is a safety issue.
Other Thoughts: With mods you can make it fit your needs, but only if you're a handyman. I’ll probably drill a couple more adjustment slots on the base with my rotary tool, and use that to lock the platform in place with some wing nuts. Really should have been included in the design.
