To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought these for my vive, at first they were amazing worked as intended was easy to adjust the height. Was starting to move around my setup and was trying to collapse the tripod to move it around, but one of the clamps broke that snap it back in place. I have only adjusted the height of the tripod for the camera a couple of times, and don't think its a cause of wear and tear. I will be looking to refund the product and might re-buy again or look for a different tripod.
Overall: Solid tripod for VR. Does what it is advertised, already assembled out of the box. You just need to adjust the height, mount the camera and you're good to go. Unfortunately came across this problem and had to give the product a 2 star review. If it was not for this mishap would have given the product 5 stars.
One of the tops of the Tripod Stand cannot be screwed in because of an error in their manufacturing. As seen in the pictures, the first picture shows the broken one in which they placed in the screw cap in the opposite way. I spent a good half an hour trying to spin the top into the tripod until I realized it was just built wrong once I compared it with the working one. I've included the working one in the second picture as proof and comparison.
While some products having mistakes are understood, this one was painfully simple and could have been easily discovered/fixed if ANYONE checked if parts were working before this was packaged. The lack of quality assurance is honestly more disappointing than purchasing a defective VR Tripod stand.
I would have given this product a negative star if allowed. Absolutely disheartening.
I purchased this product and only received 1 ball joint. This issue has been ongoing since 2019 (review made is one of the most helpful tagged ones). If you get one with a missing part you cannot get the part replacement, you'll have to go through returning the entire product, receiving a refund, then reordering the product.
Do not purchase this if you have an immediate use (in my case it was to use for webcams for work during COVID, not for gaming) because it may not bring all that is necessary.
I don't have the time or patience to send back this product. Only one stand is functional. The other stand has a faulty part that cannot support the tracker because the threading to screw the tracker to the top of the one stand is the wrong size. The only thing I can try is to re-thread the part so we can screw the base of the tracker to the stand. It is such a Hassel for me to return anything because I have to drive an hour to the nearest UPS store. I wish there was a way for this company to send me the little part that would make this one stand functional. I'm telling ya, I like these stands, but I got a defective set. Bummer. Darn it. I would give five Stars but I can only use one stand! What good is it for a full body, expensive, virtual reality system if you don't have TWO Working Stands. It's a risk as far as I am concerned to order this brand. Very inconsistent. 😢
These are great stands, very adjustable, very handy. However mine in particular came with only one of the swivel mounts that the sensors screw into, and then themselves screw into the stand, making the sensor SUPER easy to adjust in all directions. So one of my sensors is REALLY easy to configure. Point anywhere, turn, tilt, etc. The other has no swivel or tilt control due to the missing part (Adjustable ball head 1/4" mount) so is very hard to place in my limited space. So I highly recommend the product, just make sure you get all four (4) pieces! Two (2) tripod stands and two (2) adjustable ball head 1/4" mounts.
I ordered this set of tripods to mount Oculus sensors. When I opened the box, I was knocked out by the pungent smell often found in cheap petroleum-based parts manufactured overseas. The smell was most obvious on the cap at the very top of the stand. It would have been simple enough to discard the cap, but the odor had penetrated the whole stand. I hoped the smell would dissipate in time but it didn't. I was charged $9 for shipping the product back.
Bought this for my HTC Vive setup. Easy to use and height is adjustable. Tripod at the bottom is expandable to fit your space and adjust if you require stabilization depending on what is mounted at the top.
I was excited to setup my VR headset in my new apartment and ended up going with these tripods because they had 2-day shipping, despite the numerous bad reviews about product quality. That was a big mistake.
Upon opening my I was happy to find that all the parts were included - despite all the reviews warning that they were missing the ball-socket joints - however, when I went to install said joints I found that they were not the correct thread to connect to the threaded posts on the tripods.
Let me repeat that for clarity: The manufacturer couldn't be bothered to even make sure the parts they shipped out were compatible with one another. It's also not a manufacturing defect, both parts are machined properly and look clean, they are simply not the same thread.
Needless to say, I am returning them because if the company can't be bothered to spend 10s verifying the parts they receive are compatible before shipping them to customers, then they are probably cutting every other corner imaginable.
I ordered these mounts for my oculus rift setup they work really well, very steady and the height on these mounts are great for tall people like myself I'm 6ft 6in and never had a problem with room scaling. I would recommend if you pick up this product to purchase a carrying bag if you plan on using it for portable convenience overall amazing product.
