Grandon Gill – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Prince Advantage Outdoor/Indoor Table Tennis Table (Sports) I received this table last night and assembled it, with the help of my sons, in about 10 minutes. (Assembly consisted of bolting on the 4 wheel assemblies). Within 15 minutes, my sons were playing each other. The other review I saw on this site commented about the weight, and they are quite correct. The box is very heavy (around 250 pounds) and really requires two or more people to open it and and put it together. Once that is done, however, things get much easier. The table consists of two separate pieces, each of which has its own set of wheels. You can lift up on the side with the fixed legs and move each side like a wheelbarrow. The makes the table much less cumbersome to move around. The pieces line up nicely when put together, and the net that comes with the table clamps on to both sides, which may keep them from sliding apart (the clamp is spring loaded so it doesn’t create a solid attachment). So far, we haven’t seen any problem with the two halves shifting. I was very impressed with the construction of the table. The legs and braces are all quite thick (steel, I imagine) and the wheel assemblies are so solid that I cannot imagine that they will ever become deformed, regardless of what weight is put on the table. Each table surface is braced with crossed steel bars underneath. My guess is that these serve to reduce the tendendency to warp on a table placed outside. We are located in Florida, and our table is on our covered patio (lanai). I choose an outdoor table because I feared what the humidity would do to any wood product that was not intended for outdoor use, even though the roof should prevent rain from falling on it directly. On another site (Walmart.com) they sell the same model and one of the customers commented that the table was not perfectly level. It seems perfectly level to me (and the fixed legs look as if they can be adjusted with screws on the bottom, though I haven’t tried). Being only “recreational” players, my family has not encountered any issues. In fairness, any variation from true level would probably have to be pretty bad before we would notice. When we bought the table, it was eligible for SuperSaver shipping. When we tried to order it online, however, that option was not available (and we’re talking costs in the $150-$175 range). To get this addressed, we needed to call Amazon customer service. (Hint: to find the number, which is better hidden than most state secrets, your best bet is probably to Google it). Once we reached them, however, they were very helpful and credited the shipping back to us. The result was that the final total price we paid (just under $600) was well below what we would have paid at Walmart AND the product was delivered to our door. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 40 of 43 people found the following review helpful Frustrated, July 20, 2012 By D. Hall – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Prince Advantage Outdoor/Indoor Table Tennis Table (Sports) We bought this table through Amazon (Fog Dog Sports) in mid June. It was easy to assemble, and the family loved it – it plays great. Contrary to what others have said, even though it is heavy, it was fairly easy to move around once it was together. After the first rain, however, we noticed about a 4″ crack in the paint, with bubbles forming around it. I contacted the manufacturer, who said it would have to be returned to Fog Dog Sports. On July 2, I initiated the return process. I was told to repackage the table as it was delivered (not an easy task, since it was in a heavy cardboard box and strapped to a pallet – Fog Dog suggested we go to an Appliance Store for the supplies to do this). We were to be contacted by a carrier in 7-10 workdays, but possibly sooner, so we were instructed to have it packed back up in 3 days. We scrambled to get it done – keep in mind the table is VERY heavy and we lack the expertise needed to do this easily (it took us half a day). We covered it with a tarp in our driveway, awaiting the pickup. After 9 workdays, I contacted Fog Dog, concerned that I hadn’t heard from a carrier yet. I was told I would definitely hear from them the following week, that it could take 10 business days. On July 19, I contacted Fog Dog again. This time I was advised, sorry, it could take up to 30 days now, according to the carrier. Really?! So we paid $700+ for a ping pong table in early June (for Father’s Day), used it one week, it’s defective, and now we won’t get a refund/replacement until probably the end of the Summer (or maybe even early Fall at this rate). Lesson learned – don’t buy oversized items via the internet!! I will update my review with any progress. 7/26 – Table picked up by carrier for return, 24 days after requested. Was told it will take up to 30 days to process refund. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 11 of 11 people found the following review helpful Defective table tennis top, July 14, 2013 By M. Locke (york, pa United States) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Prince Advantage Outdoor/Indoor Table Tennis Table (Sports) After I received this table I realized that one side of the table was bowed. I contacted the company and was informed that I could receive one of their other products ( much less value) for my trouble or if I wanted a new table I had to go through Amazon. So much for taking pride in their product. I cannot return the table to Amazon because of their 30-day policy. It would be a major problem and expense to ship the product back. Never buy a product such as this over the internet. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
