I bought this to put the ring light on top as a previous one had broken. It came in a decorated box with pictures of the item. Inside was the tripod in a clear plastic bag with its own carry bag which is nice as you can use this to carry it around when not in use. It was easy to put up and i didnt need the enclosed instructions for this, however there were a couple of other plastic parts included in the box that i wasnt sure about, one looks like a mobile phone holder and the other was a red clip looking thing, i still dont know what thats for and there is no mention of either of these extra parts on the instructions. There is also a remote control to use with you device.
Its fairly strong and has a good height which will be ideal for most projects, im not sure how well it will hold up to anything heavy on the top but for light rings and small cameras it will be ideal.
Overall i like it and it packs away nice and compact, its light and sturdy and a decent price.
