Used to be that when you thought Polaroid, you were talking fairly high quality. Well, the name may have had trouble escaping the stigma of the old instant-developing photography (in my mind at least), this affordable and relatively sturdy tripod has made me think twice about scoffing them so quickly in the future. Lightweight and easy to use, it's not ideal for any who takes themselves particularly seriously as a photographer. If you're looking for the stability and sturdiness of a Manfrotto, you're dreaming. But what this tripod does offer is a substantial improvement over the majority of tripods in this price range.
If you just want to strap your SLR to it for some family photos, this is a perfect solution. If you're not looking to fork out a few hundred for a professional grade tripod and want something easy to trek around on vacation, again, a fantastic choice. Heck, I use it for HDR (although I'm sure purists reading this review will cringe). It's tall enough to give plenty of vertical range, and the legs and head are sturdy enough to hold my Nikon D80 (although when extending the little geared centre column, that can get a bit iffy if you're looking for a perfectly still image).
Overall, I've been pleasantly surprised with the quality and versatility of this tripod. And for the price, it's pretty darn hard to beat.
