The stand is sturdy, light weight, and easy to assemble.
I agree with the other reviewer who mentioned that it is no wonder schools purchase these music stands. This one from Manhasset is solid and sturdy, as expected. Assembly was easy, but I did find unscrewing the bottom bolt from the stand difficult--had to get some man hands to do that. Other than that, it's the same superb stand I've used for years. And, yes, I fell in love with Manhasset music stands back in public school. Nothing flimsy here: three-prong stand that is well balanced; wide enough tray for two pages and for pencils and erasers; adjustable for sitting or standing musicians. It is heavier than a travel stand, but I find travel stands to be flimsy in general. I'd rather unscrew this stand and travel with the weight--not easy, but it still would be worth it--than to use one of those annoying wire stands. Also, this stand works well with a reading light clipped to the top of it.
There is a reason that most schools use this brand, and it isn't because it is the lowest price. This is a very solid stand that doesn't tip over easily, but still isn't too heavy to move around. The tray is big enough to hold an open notebook or 3-section sheet music. If you will be carrying this around, it won't be as easy as those collapsible stands, but it is worth the effort. Those others tip over very easily. I love this stand.
I'm completely satisfied with this stand. I like to leave my book(s)/music on the stand after practice and my wife and son simply stack their own books/music on top of mine...no matter, the (often substantial) weight doesn't seem to make any difference in stability and/or security.
