It is actually really well built (some exceptions below) and does it's job well. Has a connector both for tripod screw and for light stand (I guess 1/2'' unthreaded). There's a place for an umbrella and the whole thing can swivel forward and backward or rotate around freely, with locking on both with a screw.
The top part that holds the flash came apart after I played with it... and I can fit it back properly. Doesn't matter, the top is attached with a tripod screw so I fit a flash gun stand (for 2.5$ here) and now it is even easier to take the flash on and off.
Like a lot of items on DX, its hit and miss. Some are totally worth the money, some are a waste of time. But most of these things cost less than half of what you pay at home - so usually you break even!
Get this and a white diffuser umbrella. Start out with any tripod and move on to light stand. For a few bucks you can get the most out of your off-camera flash.
