This arm is solid and well made.

The spring loading makes it so that no matter where you place the mic, the boom arm stays in place.

This works great for my Blue yeti with a pop filter.

For me the decision was between this and the Heil arm which is in the same price range (This arm was $100, the Heil was $120 as this was written)

Neither arm is perfect.

One nice thing about the Rode, and probably the Heil too, is that the arms are made in such a way that the angle of the mic is the same no matter what position the stand is in.

Pros of the Rode arm:
Comes with either a desk mount or a recessed hole mount - Note that using the desk mount adds about 2" of height as it sits on top of the desk, where as the recessed hole mount is flush with the desk.
The Desk mount is better with the Rode vs the Heil - the Rode is very stable on the desk, as it's a small cone - another nice thing about the rode, is that the clamp that goes around the back of the desk only sticks out about 1/4 inch - I was able to push my desk right up against the wall with this one. The Heil requires a few inches of clearance behind your desk.

So the Rode Desk mount is better than the Heil

As for the arm itself, I believe the Heil is a better arm.
The Heil has a channel to hide the cable - this one does not.
The Heil arm is slightly longer, however it mounts flush with the desk, so if you're trying to clear a monitor, you're just as likely to clear it with the Rode.
The Heil also is 5/8" threaded - so you don't need to use an adaptor, which means less chance for jiggling.
(My Rode Arm DID include the 5/8 to 3/8 adapter so that is good!)
But the big difference is at the end where the microphone attaches - The Heil comes with a slightly longer rod at the end - and this is important if you use a Blue Yeti USB Microphone.

Here is a quick unboxing and install of this arm. It works very nice for my application and voice-over work. Hold up my microphones very well with no issues and swings out of the way when I'm done with it.

This is not an inexpensive piece of equipment, and the do-it-yourselfer in me really wanted to try a desk lamp conversion instead, but I decided to entrust the support of my expensive microphones to the PSA 1 instead. Granted, it's not cheap, but it's still much less expensive than, say, a MIKARM or similar pro model that can easily set you back $300-500 with basic attachments.

I also considered the Heil Sound PL-2T, which seems to be of comparable price and quality, and features internal cable management (which the PSA 1 does not), but ultimately decided to give the PSA 1 a shot because it comes with both clamp and bushing mounts.

Having set it up and played with it a bit, I'm happy with the quality of the product. The chrome-plated hardware that comes with the boom is solid, and the overall package has a strong, no-nonsense feel to it. With the 5/8" adapter in place, it now holds my beloved AT3035 conveniently and securely.

Prior to this, I was using a floor stand with boom, which offers great flexibility, but was always getting in my way and occasionally was in danger of tripping me and being knocked down. Having my mic mounted on the desk is safer and removes floor clutter from the area in front of my studio desk.

I'm satisfied enough with the nature and quality of the Rodes PSA 1 that I just ordered another for my office desk, where I plan to use it to hold my AT2020 USB podcasting mic.

I'm giving it four stars instead of five because I think a more reasonable price point for this model would be about 75% of what it is. However, that hasn't stopped me from buying two of them anyway. ;-)

I was looking for a good quality, reasonable priced boom and settled on this one after a bit of research. I usually read all Amazon reviews, go to YouTube to watch videos and read online reviews of the product before buying something I plan on using and keeping for a long time.

This boom is a bit more money than others but I am GLAD I decided to buy this one.

Installation: a snap using the clamp provided to my desk. I like my desk and the wood is good quality so I did not want to drill into it or mark with an inexpensive clamp.

Routing the wire was easy as this boom has velco tabs at 3 points on the arm.

Connecting my Blue Yeti microphone, windscreen and shockmount could not have been easier.

The model is super quiet, easy to move around and really a nice addition to my home office/studio.

I strongly suggest buying this solid piece of quality equipment.

I had been doing podcasts for about 2 years before I got this boom arm. What a difference it makes! While my initial concern was clearing up some desk space for me to have material I am using for my podcast on the desktop in front of me, it turned out to be a great way to also allow for more mobility as I record my podcast. Since my microphone is no longer anchored to a static mic stand on my desk, I am able to easily move about my workspace and just drag the mic along with me. It works silently and if you have a vibration cage attached to your mic while using this, you will not get any noise transmitted into your show when you do move the boom mic. In my case, the arm came perfectly balanced for my Mic right out of the box (Samson C03 Dual-Diaphragm Vocal Condenser Microphone with Case and Swivel Mount). This setup makes doing live shows (On blogspot radio for instance) much easier and comfortable.

So far, the only complaint I have is that as you move the arm around, it can slowly nudge the wire further and further down the arm, this results in the cable connection on the microphone getting pulled. Just remember to leave some slack at the microphone end and make sure the straps at the joints where the cable makes a turn are particularly tight.
