Looks and feels like it will last a long time, too (if you don't abuse it, of course).

This is an excellent tripod for the money!

QUALITY

The tripod is well-built and should have no problem standing up to ordinary wear-and-tear. The aluminum frame is pretty solid. Although the various adjustment knobs and height-crank are made of plastic, they are durable and should last quite a while so long as they aren't abused.

USABILITY

Unlike my older tripod, the TGT-58TR has a handle mounted to the center beam. This is an excellent feature, especially for shooting in colder climates during winter. Aluminum bars can be very cold on the hands in such conditions, so having a durable plastic carrying handle is a welcome relief.

Expensive tripods usually advertise the ease of making height, rotation, and angle adjustments. Although this tripod is undoubtedly a budget model compared to high-end pieces of equipment, the controls work rather well. It has no problem supporting the weight of my Nikon D5000.

OVERALL

The Targus TGT-58TR is a budget tripod, so you shouldn't expect miracles from it. Considering its modest cost, however, it performs commendably and should last a while if it isn't excessively abused. I'm definitely happy with this piece of equipment.

UPDATE!!!

In September 2010, this tripod finally broke. In all, it lasted for about 3/4 of the year in 2010 and faithfully held my camera for roughly 200 miles of hiking all over Connecticut (as well as in Alabama, Vermont, and Maine). It got more than its fair share of abuse over the course of my travels, and considering its low price, this tripod definitely served me well.

I'm writing this update in February 2011 and I've long-since replaced this tripod with a more expensive Manfrotto unit that allows for use of a ball-head...

I've never owned a tripod before, so I was pleased to find that this tripod is very easy to use. Packed & folded, it's about two feet long. Once you've extended the legs, and raised the platform, you're at about five feet, and rock solid. Pull back a release lever, and the video/photo platform detaches from the tripod (making it MUCH easier to attach the camera). And you can thread the platform screw into the camera from underneath (with an easy to grip handle attached to the screw), so you don't need to "spin" the camera onto the platform (I admit, I did this the first time before I noticed the handle underneath). Snap the camera/platform back onto the tripod (securing it again with the release lever), and your camera is practically at eye level (I'm about 5'8"). A nice large handle extends horizontally, making any up-down or left-right adjustments very easy.

Besides that, there are two bubble level indicators (so no more crooked photos, I guess). There are flexible rubber "feet" at the end of each leg, so you'd be nice and stable on, say, a smooth floor (the camera won't slide away from you - and the legs won't scratch the floor). Well, I'm good to go, but there are a couple of other handles, levers & knobs on there - let me check the booklet...

Well, the big handle right under the top of the legs is for lifting and moving the whole tripod (duh!). And here's a good one: the little knob on the side of the platform loosens a hinge, so you can tilt the whole camera up to 90 degrees sideways (perfect for those tall family members, or to get the whole waterfall into the picture). While we're on the topic of freedom of movement: you can aim the camera straight up to the sky - and then some; and you can aim it directly down to the ground - and then some.

A great product.

I bought this tripod about a year ago, and finally buckled down and replaced it today.

Pros:
light-weight
easy to use
good basic features
low cost

Cons:
not hard-wearing
leg extension not smooth
not built to last
no variable leg angles

After a year of moderate use, this tripod is in a state of complete disrepair. For the first three months or so, the tripod worked wonderfully, and I really appreciated its light weight and compact size. However, around my third month of using it, the handle which extends the center column fell off unrepairably, making the center column unextendable and useless. About six months after buying it, without my notice, some part of the camera mount fell off, and the tripod head now just balanced on top of the tripod legs. I was still able to use the tripod, but picking it up or moving it almost always caused the tripod head (and camera, if it's still attached) to fall off, which I HATED. And this is a small bother, but any heavy lens will cause the tripod head to tilt forward, letting the lens smack the tripod body, unless the pan is REALLY tightened down.

Bottom line: This is a perfectly fine tripod, with all of the basic feature you could need, and if you plan to pull this thing out a couple of time a year, it could be the best way to go. HOWEVER, if you plan to put this thing to any sort of regular use, carrying it anywhere or tossing it in and out of a car, do yourself a favor and get something much more hardwearing.
