Overview : The Kinect Floor Stand is the ideal solution for users without their own tripods. This sturdy, weighted stand supports the Kinect camera on hard or carpeted floors. The camera mounts on at the ideal height for play. The Kinect Floor Stand is perfect for users with large living rooms or those just seeking an easily stored solution.
Quality/Usability : Sometimes, trying to find room on your TV stand, entertainment center or just empty space can be hard to find. With the Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor Floor Stand, there is no need to try and find room since the Kinect sits on the floor stand.
- Optimized solution for Xbox 360
- Sensor placement in larger rooms
- Keeps your XB360 Sensor safe from floor traffic.
- Secure locking mechanism to keep XB360 Sensor attached.
- Wide and sturdy base with a sleek piano finish.
The Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor Floor Stand consists of 4 pieces: base, (2) poles and mount plate. For a floor stand, you would think it would be made out of aluminum or metal. Something to give it some weight and balance. Instead, it is all made out of plastic. You can simply put this all together in less than 5 mins without the need to follow the instructions.
On the bottom of the triangle base are three rubber pads. These rubber pads are suppose to keep the stand from moving but don't feel like rubber pads. It has a bit of rubber texture but is smooth and hard...kind of like hard rubber. The poles and base connect to one another and lock into place by twisting (kind of like the caps on medicine bottles or CD spindle cases). Unfortunately, you can not adjust the height of the stand. It stands approximately a little over 2' feet (25" inches). The mounting plates screws onto the top of the pole and the Xbox 360 Kinect goes on top. There are two buttons on the side of the mounting plate that acts as a clamp. This is what holds the Kinect. Although it looks a bit cheap, it does the job of securing the Kinect sensor.
On hardwood floor, the stand is steady. Surprisingly, its sturdy on carpet as well. I thought due to the weight of the Kinect sensor and the very light weight of the floor stand on carpet, that it would wobble. But it didn't.
Conclusion : Overall, the Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor Floor Stand worked well. It's very cheap in quality since all the parts were made of plastic. Twisting the poles to lock together didn't feel like it did but still held together. The floor stand worked well on hardwood floor and on carpet. It would have been better if there was some weight to the bottom base itself to give it an anchor. However, the height of the stand is not adjustable. This would of been a nice feature to have rather than a fixed height.
If you do not have the floor space or space in front of your TV, you may also want to consider looking into a Kinect Sensor TV Mounting Clip.
