I think many of the negative reviews are forgetting the price of this item. I managed to pick it up for just over £3 and, for that price, I am very pleased with what I bought. I want it mainly as a film prop but with nearly-no budget this item is great. It is rather unstable and flimsy, but I expected that for the price. If I had spent £30-£40 on this item I would be highly disappointed, but for what it cost I am very pleased with it.
