“ Brand: Argos / Type: TV Stand „
This is not so much of a review as a warning - please do not buy these Argos home cinema speaker stands. (Item 7 on page 1426 of the catalogue).
Made by Mikomi, the stands may look quite nice, but the screw fixings which come packaged with them are just about useless. I had to buy a separate set of screws and washers to made this product actually work.
It seems i'm not the only one who was disappointed with this product, as the majority of the reviews on the Argos website tell the same tale. One reviewer sums up this product nicely when she says;
"There is an old saying that you get what you pay for, and this is a classic example. Build quality is poor, speaker brackets are made from ugly silver plastic, and the bolt that holds the stand and tube together didn't fit, hence a wobbly speaker stand."
I couldn't agree more.
The product has an adjustable height of 73-113cm, but if I try to adjust mine, the top bar (holding the speaker) just falls off - so I don't bother.
The catalogue description claims "Weighted steel bases for excellent stability" - and I have to admit, in the products favour, the bases are of a fair quality - it's the rest of the design which is the problem!
Costing £19.99 for a set of two, my advice would be to save your money and buy a better quality set.
