I am very pleased with this product, it was much prettier than I had expected. The website photo doesnt do it justice at all, so far it hasnt tarnished, it still looks as good as it did the day I opened it. I didnt want anything to bulky and this solved my problem. I believe that I will be able to use the Rod over and over many times its a multi-purpose rod. I love it.

Got the rod, but the curtains I had ordered didn't come until the next day (or maybe the next). Anyway, hung the brackets (finally), and put the rod on (waiting for curtains) and the brackets came out of the wall. Went through the whole hassle again (I HATE putting curtain rod brackets up) and waited for the grommet curtains. They got here, the rod was too big. Curtains wouldn't go on the rod, so I had to get a different rod. So now, I thought, what the heck am I going to do with this? (Not wanting to return it since I'd thrown out the packaging, like the intelligent person that I am.) Ah Ha! Ureka. The rod is now my new weapon. It's very heavy and I dare anyone to break into my house. (I really would hate to hurt anyone, but just in case -- this makes an excellent weapon.)
The rod looks nice, but the adjustable feature is pretty weak. There is no way to lock it in place in the extended setting. Also, the curtain rod is so wide, that I had to get brand new curtain rings for it since my old ones did not fit. Turned out to cost more than just buying one at the store, so make sure you want a thick curtain rod.
I love the quality of this rod and was so excited to use them but I bought the curtains with the grommets and they don't fit. I kept the curtains and returned the Magnum for something a bit smaller. But, they make a statement! I regretfully returned them.
