amazonbasics travel tripod

Just wondering if anyone had tried the amazon basics travel tripod?
It got a pretty good write up in the amateur photographer round up the other week, and was just thinking if anyone had first hand experience.

Not great reviews. Although some of the Amazon basic items are pretty good - their lightening cable for iPads is really solidly made and fairly cheap for instance. I'd try the Amazon Warehouse after Christmas. I got a Manfrotto 055XPROB for $61 that had a "scratch" on one leg (hard to find) a couple of years ago.

Definitely second Amazon Warehouse. Not just for photo stuff. I picked up an 800 weber genesis grill (weber never allows any significant discounts on their products) there last year for $625. The external box had a few scuff marks on it, so they had to flag it as used and sell it via warehouse. It had never been opened.
