Love these stands!
We just purchased 4 more of these stands, in addition to the 6 we already purchased for use in our buildings on campus. They are VERY STURDY, yet easy to move, and easy to adjust tilt and height. My only suggestion would be to have tops that rotate between portrait and landscape a bit easier, without having to remove the wingnuts on the back. If it had a top similar to the one on item #M2X1117SLV, that would be great. The base on the M2X1117SLV sign-holder makes it hard to move around, but the top of it is really easy to swivel between portrait and landscape. We decided to go with the FST1711CHR model after getting samples of both, mainly because the FST1711CHR model has a smaller base, making it much easier to move.
