The quality of the wood was better than I expected. The construction was fairly simple and straight forward and the wheels function as advertised. There is not a lot of options for a sub $1000 podium and this is a nice combination of affordability, quality, and aesthetics. However I was disappoint in a few minor details. The finish in the front was a little sloppy and thin. The shelf underneath has no fasteners to keep it attached. So when you tip the podium to move it, the shelf falls out. It's an easy fix with a dremel tool, but annoying that it wasn't already fixed. Also it says the top comes off to place on a desk or table. While the top is shipped in a separate box, it isn't feasible to unattached and reattach from the podium without 20+ minutes of construction. We weren't counting on this feature so it wasn't a big deal.

I ordered this podium on a Thursday and received it on Monday, all the way from Rhode Island to Seattle! I used it last night at a huge special event and it looked tremendous and much more professional than what we had used before. As emcee of the event, I appreciated having a place to store my water, my notes and the microphone stand. Also the hidden wheels made it easy to move but since you can't see them, it looks much more professional than the others that show the wheels. I will definitely order again from Displays2Go. Thank you!!
