Rated 3 out of 5Â by DESERTMANFRED SOME GOOD, SOME BAD.
I bought 3 of these bathroom mirrors because I have 3 bathrooms. Each has 2 back-to-back mirrors; one flat and one concave for closeup viewing. The design of the extension arms, the size of the mirrors and the solid metal parts are normally a sign of good quality.
However, the good quality design was defeated by some poor quality workmanship on the manufacturing assembly line. To assemble the extension arms at the pivot point, they align 2 pieces of the hinges and press them together using a method similar to the way a large, hollow rivet is pressed together like a mushroom. The pressing step has to be carefully controlled to make sure the "rivet" is mushroomed enough, but NOT mushroomed too much.
One of the mirrors' extension arms were so tight that I could not pivot them at all. Upon disassembly and inspection I discovered that the cause was indeed that all of the mushrooming was overdone. That prevented the arms from pivoting.
I was able to "undo" the over-pressed mushrooming in the three arms without causing any damage to the chrome plated surface and completed the installation in all three bathrooms.
Although my sample of 3 mirrors is low, in a sense of total quality the 33% failure rate of my purchase is extremely unacceptable. For example; if a car maker delivered 1 out of 3 defective cars and you were the one that bought that car, would you buy that brand again?
I gave this mirror a recommendation of YES because the design is clever and because I was able to install 2 out of the 3 right out of the box with no problem.

I'm a big fan of this mirror! Highly recommended! It's pretty discreet when it's folded up. I'm a fan!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by JLEJR not happy
it was easy to install but as usual it was short one piece. one of the nuts that hold the mirror base to the base plate that screws to the wall was missing. it was the last one they had.
