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
This review is from: Rosewill RNX-EasyN400 Wireless-N Broadband Router (1T1R) IEEE 802.11b/g/n Up to 150Mbps Data Rates/ WPA Personal and Enterprise, WPA2, 64 & 128 bit WEP, PSK, TKIP, AES, WPS Security with 2 dBi fixed Antenna
Pros: Easy to configure & set up. Running well at ~6 weeks. Supposedly can broadcast multiple SSIDs.
Cons: Could not connect Wii or DSi. Finds the AP, but won't connect. Created wide open SSID, first SSID stopped working right. Reset, put no security on device - no luck. Set to b/g only - nope, but broke my Droid & iPod. Reset again to plain jane w/ security, all but Nintendos work. Range on this is short - great if you live near others & many APs around. Covers my home, no more, which is ideal. (I don't want my AP across half the town like some folks.)
Other Thoughts: This is a good cheap AP. I've spent a lot more for others that fail in the first year anyhow. This works, even though my Wii & DS can't get online with it.READ FULL REVIEW
