Office Depot� Brand Instant Easel, Full Size, Black
A little too basic....
This instant easel is a product that uses shockcords (like in camping tents) to fairly easily set up. This is an excellent product for indoor use.
There is only one point where the three legs are attached, at the apex, so that means there is no true means of making the easel steady, especially in an outdoor situation.
Some of our volunteers seem flummoxed by the chart holders are attached to two of the legs, and several have been snapped off so far. Fortunately, ACCO/Quartet has replacements in stock and provide them with little or no trouble at all.

Cheap, Travel Ready, Flimsy, Fragile
I have 3 of these and love them, when they work. The tripod itself is great, but the supports that hold the display items break off very easily, making it a bit useless until you figure out a replacement (I use clothespins).

They break after the first use
I really liked this easel because it closes to a small package and it is easy to set up. Bought 4 for an event (I am an event planner) and after the first use, the 4 of them broke. I really like the design, just not the quality. So I guess if I needed to use them again, I would have to replace them after every use.

Exactly what I need!
I like to paint and purchased an easel from an art supply place. It's fine, but much too large for my small NYC apartment. Then I saw this online, and bought it, and it's perfect for me. Easy to move around and store. I'm very happy with it!
