Wouldn't buy it again.
on 9 February 2016
I bought one of these tripods around 1 and half years ago; but even though it has seen very light use - recently the tripod head broke off.
The head became gradually looser throughout the few times I used it and eventually detached completely. Sadly it's now out of warranty so I am left with a broken tripod.
The Giottos Silk Road Series GYTL9353 is compact and light weight tripod with nice features, but sadly the build quality could be better. If you are looking for something sturdy that will last then you should look elsewhere - I wouldn't buy it again.
I contacted Giottos directly about this issue but didn't get a reply.
