Easy adjustments, and quick setup and breakdown are the main reasons why many rate this highly. Many are also surprised at how solid and stable this stand is given its price and weight, however it must be noted that most of those people were talking about home use rather than gigging.
A number of people have complained about the petroleum odor of the rubber parts, something that is unfortunately common with cheaper keyboard stands. Although many have said it's easy to assemble once you take it out of the box, a significant minority did have trouble assembling it with some saying it took them over 20 minutes to put it together the first time.
On-Stage are one of the better known brands so you can't go too far wrong buying this if you just need a simple cheap stand for home use.
