Nice and simple design. However it is not suitable for all applications. For example i use this to attach a field recorder, which works perfectly well. On the other hand i'm also using it as a desktop tripod for my studio microphone on a shock mount. In this case you have to use the screw adjust the angle and tighten it up, but it's impossible with your bare hands. The microphone will fall down. Only using a pliers to tighten it up does the job. For this money it could be a little better.
