Well made and versatile
DrCheese, 14.01.2021
There are lighter and cheaper light stands in Manfrotto's range, but the MS0490A has enough additional features to make these compromises worth making.

+ It's still reasonably light.
+ It collapses down small enough to fit in a backpack.
+ If has an fitment adapter making it useful for both microphones (3/8") and cameras (1/4").
+ It rises to well above head-height (c. 195cm).
+ The centre pole is detachable making it useful as a boom pole or a really long selfie stick.
+ One of the legs of the tripod is extendable which make levelling easier on uneven ground.
+ There is a hook for attaching a weight to hold the stand in place in windy conditions.

- The screws for tightening joints in the telescopic pole are quite stiff so it is not always clear when a joint has been tightened sufficiently.
- Aluminium is not as stiff as carbon fibre, so has a tendency to vibrate and wobble in strong winds or if on a wooden floor while people are moving about. Carbon fibre would be considerably more expensive though.
- A bag would have been really welcome, making it easier to stow in a backpack without snagging on cables etc.

On the whole a great buy with uses from stereo recording of classical concerts to field recording and more.

Excellent product.
Catalansound, 02.09.2020
Bought this to use with my PA meassurement rig.
Pros: Compact, lightweight, stabile. Fit's in my peli case while folded.
Cons: A pouch bag might had been useful for when it's transported as an attachment to a backpack.

Conclusion: go for it. I would recommend it to a friend

Great light and compact stand
pavelfi, 11.03.2019
It packs really small and is very light. But the trade-off is that it?s not very stable when used with heavier lights, you can forget about soft boxes. But as a portable travel stand for speedlights or smaller battery strobes or LED lights, it?s perfect.
