This review is from: LG 32MP58HQ-P Black 31.5" FHD IPS Widescreen LED Backlight Monitor 5ms 1920 x 1080 at 60 Hz, On Screen Control w/ Screen Split& Anti-Glare with 3H Hardness HDMI/D-Sub 250 cd/m2 1000:1
Pros: Very large format for the sale price
High brightness level
Software to allow you to snap some programs to a split screen (quad, three stripe, side by side) on a single desktop
Cons: Picture quality is very, very soft. Not sure 1920x1080 is good for this size monitor.
Monitor stand is very weak - I will be mounting on multimonitor stands
One of five arrived cracked in sealed, undamaged package - waiting on customer service.
Other Thoughts: I would most likely use this for digital signage or applications where sharpness is not a primary factor.
Would not use it for small text/word processing, video or picture editing.
It is an incredibly beautiful looking display, especially when 3 of them are side by side, stretching 7 1/2 feet wide!
This review is from: Vento Tall Trumpet Stand
Pros: Once set up, it does seem stable, even on three legs. The extra height is nice while sitting - I could comfortably swap from a seated position without bending over. There is some merit to this free standing higher height design if you change between trumpets, a cornet and flugel like my son does while playing. Much less bending over and bothering other soloists while you take your eyes off of the action.
Cons: Packaging was terrible - box beat up, was in a loose bag inside box. Will have to repackage to wrap for Christmas.
Construction feels cheap. Really cheap. The part of the bell is a hard brittle PLA type plastic. Will immediately start by putting an old black sock over this part to protect the instrument.
The overall design is great for sitting in one place, but not really to be moved around. It folds up if you loosen the set screws, but I feel like I will break it just touching it. This is OK to sit in your music room, but not so OK for a gig setting where you move it around.
Other Thoughts: For the $20 I had expected something a bit nicer. If it holds up it will be nice to have the height for swapping while playing, but it either should be half the price, or twice the quality - and the engineering just isn't smooth. This design needs just a tad more work..
To be fair - this included free shipping - but I've seen the same stand elsewhere without free shipping, so I have to go off of the $20 list price I paid regarding value.
Unlikely to return it - it will work in the music room and we could never have enough stands! But I also wouldn't order this same stand at this price again unless it was constructed just a bit better. It's more of a "meh" instead of a "yeah!"
This review is from: On Stage DST7600 Trumpet Stand 35958
Pros: Holds your trumpet so the bell does not get damaged.
Cons: Not necessarily as pictured
Other Thoughts: There are different stands, of different designs, pictured here. In one design the legs seem to fold up over the outside. The other the legs unscrew as one unit and slide inside the base. I would be concerned that I would be receiving what I thought I was purchasing with this item.READ FULL REVIEW
