pay more for a better built product

I bought this tripod as a cheap way to get by until I could get a better tripod. I was going to use it later for a lighting stand. I never got that far. I had the tripod for about 2 weeks, used it lightly with my Nikon D3200. It seemed to work great. Then, while out with the family one afternoon, one of the extension legs fell out. Seems the inside of the plastic clamp had broken. Luckily I was still setting up the tripod, and no harm came to my camera or lens.
On a positive note, Micro Center's customer service was great. They credited my account back, and I was able to get a new better build tripod right away. I would recommend the MeFOTO one that Micro Center carries. It is almost 5 times the cost, but a lot cheaper than replacing a camera or lense. It is also much sturdier.
Hope this helps!
No, I do not recommend this product.
