I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this piece for the price. The frame is really well made and there were no sharp edges, all threaded holes were clean, and my Hero3+ Black fit perfect. It is heavier than the GoPro plastic frame, but for what I use the GoPro for when it's in a frame (where I have access to the USB and SD card w/o taking it out) this frame is perfect. The addition of a cold shoe mount is awesome as the internal mic on the Hero3+ isn't the best so now I use a Rode external mic and the mic is mounted to the camera vs being held. Great piece of hardware!
