This easel is pretty decent given the price. To get much better, you'd have to pay massively more money. Speaking of paying massively more, I saw one in Office Depot that wasn't quite as good, and they were charging 5 x what this one cost. So, I think it is a pretty good deal.The easel is plenty tall enough, and plenty sturdy enough for holding foam or cardboard backed posters like for trade shows, which is what we use it for. It would also hold heavier wood framed canvases, but you wouldn't want to put some 6' x 6' ornate wood framed painting on it. It's nice and light so it's easy to carry and transport. Trivial to set up,too, which is nice considering that mostly marketing people have to deal with it. I'm kidding!Anyway, it does the job well, it's a very good deal, it's light and simple to set up. Perfect.
