 Edit: Reduced to 1 star due to the effort required to "fix" the stands" and seeing how terrible their engineering was of this. With this fix the stand is now solid and sturdy. If you want to make the same fix, do the following:

1. Order M5 x 14 bolts (SS or zinc plated), fender washers and nuts (preferably nylock nuts)
2. Order 2x of the following from onlinemetals.com in 24" length: 1.5" x 1.5" x 0.125" Aluminum Angle 6061-T6-Extruded Structural
3. Cut both angles to 18" length with a jigsaw or band saw
4. Mark and cut a 45* bevel on the top side of the angle to help avoid injuries once installed.
5. Polish cut edges for safety. I used a Scotch Brite grinder wheel. https://www.amazon.com/Scotch-Brite-Multi-Finishing-Wheel-Medium-Grit/dp/B0006N7KZE
6. Remove plastic base from stand, position angles in place on the plastic base and mark outline of holes from the inside of the plastic base onto the angle
7. Drill 5mm hole in angles using markings in previous step for the M5 bolts. Use a unibit to make a circular hole.
8. Put base back on the stand and loosely bolt the angles in using the existing holes in the base and stand
9. Use a punch to create a starter dent in the angle for the angle-to-base bolts. Put them about 1" from each end and centered in the bottom leg of the angle. Drill 5mm hole with unibit, going into the plastic base as well.
10. Remove angles so you can remove the plastic shavings from between angle and base that were created when drilling into the base
11. Bolt angles to everything - base and stand. Use fender washers under the nuts for the stand bolts because the holes in the plastic base are hilariously oversized and sloppy.

Original:
I had high hopes for this stand, but sadly it is a hot mess due to the easily flexed plastic base. I have the 70 lbs weights and it wobbles around like a drunken college student (trust me, I know) whenever I set the weights in it. Personally I don't even think it's safe - I don't want a wobbling weight stand with a plastic base flexing looking like it's going to drop 140 lbs of steel plates on my feet. I don't trust it AT ALL. The video shows a VERY GENTLE push, which is LESS THAN the amount of flex/wobble I see when I put the weights back in the rack at the end of a set.

The column on this thing is hollow. THAT right off the bat is problematic. It is screwed into a somewhat hard, not all that rigid, plastic base. When you rest into place the dumbbells, the thing sways ever so slightly forwards and backwards. I had have this column and the foldable, smaller in appearance, all metal stand. I assure you that the foldable version is rigid, solid, and does not budge. It is undoubtedly the better buy.

The plastic base is garbage. It makes the whole stand wobble. Mine arrived cracked too. The original stands were all metal, no wobble. Seriously disappointing. This company is introducing all sorts of plastic parts. Weak move

Easy assembly and pretty much required for the PowerBlock dumbbells (i purchased the 90lb set on a lightning deal). Base is plastic but the rest is metal -- why??? We'll see how well it holds up. So far, so good. Great height for me (5'7"). I wish Amazon sold the more heavier duty model... I would have bought that one instead.

UPDATE 5/2/2017
===================
Upped my review from 4 stars to 5 stars. My only concern when I bought this unit about 2.5 years ago was that the base is plastic. It doesn't matter... it has lasted all this time with no issues whatsoever. And is still works/looks great with weekly use! (added a photo).

This is cool to hold the Powerblocks but its a little low (I'm 5'11'') and not the sturdiest for heavy weights (I have the 70lb set). It is a nice addition to the home gym and does what it needs to for the power blocks.

Do to the fact the weights lean forward the blocks aren't aligned perfectly to change the weights and you have to push them a little bit to get the clip in.

When you place heavy weights down the thing sways a little bit showing its not that solid.

Assembly is pretty easy and took probably 25 minutes.

None of the issues are a deal breaker because I still like having it to keep my home gym looking nice and the weights off the floor but it could be improved.

SO I bought my Powerblocks about 5 years ago. I built a stand for them out of 2x4s because they were free scrap from work. The stand was super sturdy and worked perfect. Fast forward to now. I just moved and left my heavy/sturdy stand behind and purchased the Powerblock stand. I just put it together and I seriously can't believe this is what "Made In America" is now. It's about 30x the price it should be. The base is just cheap flimsy plastic, the stand is two 1/16" pieces of aluminum. The top part that the dumbbells sit on is the only good part with thick metal. I put my two 90lb Powerblocks on it and the whole thing sways for 15 seconds. Seriously. I timed it. Anytime you change a weight it wobbles around for 15 seconds. . . The only thing holding it all together are the screws through the cheap plastic... I don't see this lasting long/ending well. Total disappointment cause I love my Powerblocks and where they've gotten me.

This stand provides the perfect height for my Powerblock dumbbells. The middle and top sections are made of steel. The bottom is some plastic/abs material. Mine came missing 1 screw, which customer service was able to send me exactly 1 screw :). Most products would contain an extra screw/bolts/nuts but not here. It's rather simple to put together and looks sleek with my Powerblock dumbbells. The only problem with this product is the adhesive backing, which may need replacing in the future. Also, only the large version has the holes in the middle for the metal weight. The smaller version does not have them. Overall, it's a nice stand, not perfect, but it is a great match for the Powerblock dumbbells.

Gestern ist der Ständer für die Powerblock Hanteln bis 41 kg je Hantel angekommen.

Der Ständer war sehr sicher und robust verpackt = keine Transport-Schäden.

Der Aufbau ging sehr einfach und ist selbsterklärend = Aufbauzeit ca. 15 Minuten.

Der Ständer macht einen sehr stabilen Eindruck.

Die Powerblock Sport EXP 90 Hanteln Stage 1, 2 & 3 passen super auf den Ständer.
