Solid product but not for heavier mics
Mik-303, 08.12.2020
I've used one daily for many years and it's a good product IMO. Only reason why I can't give it 5/5 is because it's simply not strong enough to handle larger mics. I am using it with SM57 and it's been perfect for that. I tried to use it with Rode's own NT2 but PSA-1 can't handle it's weight. I bought it for homestudio use but I am currently using when playing videgames online. It's a good product if you are aware of it's limitations.

Has some things to improve on
Lil V, 06.12.2020
I have no previous experience to compare against so it is hard for me evaluate how it stands out of competition. Mechanism makes scratching metal noise when adjusted. For my mic I had to get additional extension tube. I appreciate mounting options. Overall good, especially packaging, but not 5 stars good.

High quality but not perfect…
Clarification, 17.05.2021
I would recommend the product (with caveats below).

Pros -
Solid frame with high quality finish.
Stable and easy to adjust.
Maintains Mic at the same angle in every position with relative ease.

Cons-
Difficult to tighten some of the screws adequately.
Spring tension can’t cope at extremes of extension or flexion
(e.g. it struggles with the Rode NT2a).

Nice addition to my room
bogdandorca, 14.02.2019
I got this so I can easily stream from my PC without having to use a normal stand.

It's a nice addition as it simplified thing a lot. Not I can easily move my mic around the desk, depending on what I'm doing.

What I personally don't like about it is the fact that it's quite hard to have other add-ons for the mic. I have a pop-filter that is just impossible to place on this stand.

Other than that I can honestly say I love what it does. The cable management is really easily done, the position is really customizable and it hold the microphone really well.

Good standard
DennyTwist, 10.03.2021
Good standard. the Attaching mic screw loosens over time. Nothing special to worry bout and could probably be fixed. All in all good product

Perfect for heavier microphones.
JSP , 07.03.2019
If you have a standard NTA mic or one similar in weight this is the perfect mic arm for you. But if you have any lighter mic it's quite a hassle because the springs are inside the housing, are not adjustable and are set to counter a heavy microphone. This means that it will flip up or not stay down below a certain point with a lighter mic. (think neumann tlm-xxx or any boom mic.) The mounting is really sturdy and gives you two options with the clamp being really big so it should fit about any table without any problems.

1x RODE PSA-1
Michael J. G., 02.09.2014
This is a nice piece of kit. Very solid and well made. The dual mounting option is a nice idea. It would be nice to be able to hide the mic cable inside the stand like other makes but other than that it's good value and won't droop with the heavier studio microphones.

Its Rode.. No mistakes made
Jibu, 10.03.2018
Good product. The product will work properly only when you attach a mic at the other end. Please bear that in mind

Good...
Unit95, 06.09.2018
But the oil that was in the stand to make it smoother, just turned into rock in my case, so it noisy when you move it. But it doin well with his work.

Good quality, does the job
Thomas dB, 13.09.2020
It's alright, it does exactly what you would expect. Very convenient, but the handling is not mind blowing. Still happy with the purchase.

Performs the task, and does it well
Trottimus, 16.05.2013
the Rode arm is a solid piece of kit, it can hold a Bluebird mic (480g + shock mount and pop filter) with no fuss. There is no squeaking from the joints or springs, and it is easily positioned to where you want it, with no sagging or movement.
While the look and design is nothing to shout home about, it performs its duty well, and has never collapsed on me.

One thing of note, you'll have to do some manual tightening of some screws to ensure the mic stays firmly in place, but that shouldn't be required often.

Good boom
FredKemp, 25.09.2020
Just sometimes a bit awkward to get into the right position. Once it is set up, it is fine though
