I own a bunch of Neewer products... It's cheap but decent stuff. A good choice for a beginner that wants to try out something. Considering their price points I've never been disappointed in anything but don't expect BMW quality at Kia prices.

Now about this product specifically I'm not exactly sure the use case. The max height being only 2 and a half feet they are too low for lighting unless you were doing some kind of specific underlighting (very rare). They could be used for an underslung boom mic.

I totally agree with you. Neewer products are solid and I recommend them, especially if you're on a budget but do not want to sacrifice quality. Im a semi professional and use them and know of some professionals who own some neewer products.

I dont own these stands. However I started with Neewer and neewer like company products. I started with 2 umbrellas, 2 stands, back drop holders. They work OK for a basement studio. The cons are they ll get stuck at an inopportune time, bend with minimal weight. Poor quality control. I used to own calumet 750ws monolight. Cheap stands will bend for that light. I have since upgraded to mid tier flashpoint brand. Convenience, build quality and warranty is worth the extra cost. This stand may work to light the back ground for sitting portrait and under table lighting for macro with strobes. I wouldnt trust this stand with monolight.

I've used Neewer for semi-pro photography work too, and they turned out fine. Never had the product in question here though, but they're a legitimate low-cost brand.

I've never had an issue with Newer products, but like another reviewer said; I'm not sure of the use of these little stands. I suppose they'll have to be placed on a desk or table near the subject. Personally I'd rather wait for some taller ones.

This isn't even Kia, it's more like a Tuk tuk

These little stands would have been helpful to me this past winter- I had 6 wrestling team captains lined up and wanted to do dramatic lighting from behind giving them a white outline separating them from the background. My current stand went as low as 30" with the monolight on top pushed it up to about 35" I wanted the light a little lower, but not on the floor...these would have been perfect.

If wanting to do lighting from behind or offset behind, these would work great for a mini strobe.

Neewer is a good basic product, if wanting to go up one step in quality, check out the Flashpoint brand. I have a couple of stands through them and they're pretty beefy, without breaking the bank.

If wanting to go down a notch from Neewer, check out Limo Studio. That's bare bones basic. From an auction I got a backdrop holder that has good stands, but the lighting stands that came with it were so flimsy fully extended I was afraid of putting my flash and umbrella on it in fear of snapping the extension pole...I say going down a notch lower as a warning to not go with Limo Studio!

My only warning about putting lights on these are how small the legs are, which offer very little balance, that's why they don't go higher that 32". They will easily fall over. At first I wanted them for my LED bars, which are 2ft tall, which would actually work out for these, except sometimes I need them horizontal (I have them on a mount to do this) and they would fall over with such tiny legs.

Also, never, I repeat NEVER go cheaper than Neewer, for your own safety and wallet.

Hmm, seems a bit too short to work as a portable Vive base station setup.

Sorry if my sense of sarcasm didn't come through well. By saying going a notch lower than Neewer was meant to say not to go with Limo Studio.

I do commercial work for dept stores and I bought this for e-commerce flats. I have a lot of cheap light stands from Neweer, they all work fine. Just remember to weigh it down
