I rate it high because I knew all these cons before purchasing (with research). I have a 73 inch Mitsubishi DLP and it is on the manufacturer stand in a very large room. The kinect requires you to be about 6 feet from the TV, which is too close with a TV this large (also which happens to be right below my ceiling fan). This stand allows me to move it a couple of feet in front of TV (and away from the fan), and put me in the sweet spot for viewing and playing. It is ideal for large TV's in a big room (it says this in the box).Read more ›
Anyway, there are 7 plastic peices.
1) Top base: which uses a quick connect of 2 pinchers to hold the kinect base
2) male/female reducer: male side is about the size of a camera tripod (although I dont have one so I couldn't verify that), female side is the size of a 15/16" gas threaded connector
3) male/male 12" pipe: same 15/16" gas thread connections
4) female/female coupler: same 15/16" gas thread connections
5) male/male 12" pipe: one side with 15/16" gas thread connection, bottom side uses a proprietory connection to the base
6) quick connect wire clip: clips to the bottom pipe, which is slightly larger than the upper pipe
7) tripod base with female insert for bottom pipe: this comes with either 3 rubber pads for the bottom or 3 velcro pads for use on carpet
I went to the local hardware store and bought:
1) two 1/2" X 12" threaded pipes (SKU: 44102)
2) three 1/2" couplers (SKU: 44884)
3) two (15/16" to 1/2") couplers (SKU: 46980)
for $20 and I made the stand taller so I could put the stand behind my TV. There is a TV mount but I dont have the playing space and I needed the kinect about a foot behind my TV, not on top of it.
I gave it high marks because I like the quick connect base at the top which allows me to quickly remove the kinect from the stand for storage.
When I first bought this Microsoft was actually recommending that most people put their Kinect right below their TV. Then they changed their minds. Now they say "the higher the better". So, this product is a less than ideal solution. If you CAN put the Kinect above your TV, do so.
Still, though, you do absolutely need the Kinect to be completely stable, either through it being mounted somewhere or by it being on a flat surface that is deep enough for it. It's also important that it be far forward enough that it can see your feet. So, for some people's TV setups, putting it above the TV might just not be feasible. (Granted, I bought this a while ago and there may be newer mounting products out now, but at the time, certainly, there was no immediately apparent way to do it with my TV.)
Nowadays, actually, this stand works out pretty well for me - we're now a two-Kinect household: one setup has lots of room to move but has a TV that's seen better days and no proper sound system; the other is pretty cramped for space, but has the good TV and the good sound system. So that second one is pretty much just voice commands and Child Of Eden. Most of the time that Kinect is just on this stand in a corner listening. But it's easy to put in place for proper play and put away again thanks to the stand. The way the furniture is set up in the first setup, I don't need any sort of a stand, but for the second, I still absolutely do.Read more ›
