Wrong Way Hinge "Solution"

As near as I can tell, any hinge installation problem these tables might have had has been fixed. The hinges in my set can be adjusted to hinge in the direction of your choice, so there's no such thing as installing them backwards. The plate that keeps the hinge from bending to one side is easily (i.e. in 3 seconds) rotated around to the other side, thereby changing the direction of the hinge. There are even special instructions and pictures directing you to do this, but they're easy to misread, especially if you're primed to expect the hinges to be wrong (I almost popped off the hinges before realizing there was no need. In his review dated 3/5/09 TJ also said the hinge changing was easy, but I managed to miss that note as well).

In the description of this table it says the color is black. In fact it's a really dark green. So dark that my wife can't see the green, but I definitely can. I wasn't thrilled about getting a black table but am quite happy with the oh-so-dark green. (Perhaps those in the table tennis world know that black means dark green, but I didn't until a spoke with a Dick's store manager.)

Otherwise, I agree with what others are saying. The table is really heavy so have some muscle around to install. And assembling the undercarriage is straightforward but time consuming - lots of nuts and bolts. Once assembled it's really nice. The fit isn't $1000 perfect, but it's very good for this price. The key test is time - will it be warped in 2 years - but I can't help you there.

One other assembly note. As part of the packaging there's lots of cardboard stapled to the underside of the table which also has an anti-warping coating - presumably a moisture barrier. Being compulsive I started pulling out all the staples, then noticed that in doing so I chipped up the coating, which is probably best left alone. Better to have left the staples in.

Great value. Highly recommend.

Upsides: Once it's set up, this table is fantastic. Nice big casters for easy rolling, and solid sturdy legs. Playing surface is great and should last a long long time. It's also very easy to lift each side up for playback position or to roll it into storage. Friends have been very impressed. This puts most home tables to shame.

Downsides: Yes, it's really heavy, but that's what you're looking for in a quality table. (If your looking for a cheap light/flimsy table, look elsewhere.) Assembly took couple hours with two relatively strong guys, but a third pair of hands helped in a couple steps (just to guide heavy pieces together). The net is a little cheap given the quality of the table, but you can upgrade that separately, which I have done. Lastly the corner guards are a little off, but can be tweaked easily.

Compared to the prices of other high-end home tables, this is a great value. Highly recommend!

Easier if you read the directions.

While it is very heavy, I was able to assemble it with just my teenage son to help. I wanted a 1" table top, so expected it to be heavy. Two of us loaded it into the pickup and unloaded by basically dragging it off the back. [...] It is helpful to read the directions step by step (a couple of times before assembling). The hinges appeared to be installed backward, but the directions clearly stated to check them and there was a picture with the correct orientation. I just rotated them. The net appeared 4 inches too short, but the directions in the pack stated it would stretch. So I stretched it before putting it on the brackets. Fits like a glove. The wheels roll nicely. My assembly time was just over an hour. But I wasn't in a hurry. So far I love the table. I would recommend upacking and transporting individual pieces if taking it up or down stairs.....

Great Table

I agree with the "NIce Solid Table" post. And the follow advice is assuming you've decided you want this table, which you should because at this price it's unbeatable.

Here are my suggestions: Definitely need at least two people to move it. You should bring it downstairs piece by piece. And make sure you flip the hinges as it says in the directions (there is even a picture of what it should look like). It took me and my friend about an hour (from unpacking to playing) to put it together. Great sturdy table, easy to put in playback position. EXTREMELY HAPPY with the purchase, especially with such a huge sale. Last advice, don't try to pick it up with a SUV, it won't fit, nor should it be put on the top of your car (it weighs almost 300 lbs in the box). Borrow a pick-up truck from a friend.

Nice solid table

This table is heavy, you will need at LEAST 2 people to move this table from truck to rec room, infact 3 is not a bad idea. My buddy and I ended up taking it down in the basement piece by piece, I would do the same if I were you. Directions are easy to follow, however you will NOT be able to put this table together in 10mins, just not going to happen (took us about 2 hrs). Basically take your time put it together correctly and before you know it you will be enjoying your new purchase. Finally the hinges are not on backwards just flip them around DO NOT UNSCREW THE HINGES.. Seems like everyone in the reviews had problems with this, the directions even tell you they may need to be flipped, because of how the table is shipped. This table is fantastic, HAPPY PONG PLAYING FELLOW PONG PLAYERS

Good Quality, Assembly Difficult

This is a good quality table. The assembly took me (by myself) about two hours total. I have assembled alot of consumer products and have done many home improvements (tile, wood floors, crown molding, etc.) Alot of that time was just figuring out what the instructions were trying to say. The hinges were on backward (seems like a common problem). There is even a picture in the directions showing the hinges in their incorrect and correct position (does this happen that frequently?). The hinges are held in by four screws into the particle board, and some glue. Not sure how the screwholes will hold up in the particle board.

Once it was set up, I realized what great quality this table is. The casters are very solid and smooth rolling. The table seems like it will hold up over the years.

Good table but too heavy

I had this table for two weeks now. Very sturdy and good performance. It did take about two hours to put it together. It was very hard to handle the table top during the assembly. It is easy to fold up and down for self play or storage. If it does not need to be moved again, it would be fine. I don't think it could be moved as a whole piece while folding. It is just too heavy to handle that way. Well, taking it apart and re-assembling it would be a pain at neck. BTW, the underside of the table is painted, but not as good as the top. Better to leave those staples in as some paint and chips may come off if the staples were taken out. I would rather buy a thiner tabletop with ligher weight.

Great table, heavy package

Me and a friend of mine put this table together in about half an hour. Granted, I am a contractor and he is a mechanic, but the assembly was not nearly as confusing as I've been reading in other reviews. Also, I at first thought that two of the locking supports were installed backwards at the factory (as mentioned by several other reviewers). After spending some time considering drilling out the rivets and reassembling them correctly, I discovered that the brackets swivel 360 degrees; 30 seconds later everything was aligned correctly and assembly was not a problem. The only real issue for me was the weight - my friend and I are both well over 6'0 tall and physically fit, and it was all we could do to move and load/assemble this table. Other than that, we are very pleased.

Best table eva

This table is great Heavy but thats what you want. Ten minutes to play yeah rite ill take the over on that more like 1 to 2hrs,but well worth it.The brackets every one is talkin about rotate 360 so dont drill new holes just rotate them easy. You will need at least 3 people to move it but two can assemble. My suggestion is to leave table on ground and assemble upside down trust me way easyr just turn directions upside down too. By far best table ive ever play on and i play on table cost far more. If your thinkin of gettin a table you wont haft to replace in six month this is it. ITS THE BEST TABLE I EVER PLAY ON PLAYED ON OVER 50 TABLES.

good table for the price [$]

This is a nice table. Folds up with little effort, rolls easily across floors and has a solid top. ***THE CONS***The side skirts are flimsy which make it a little difficult to fold up. While table is still packaged it is very heavy and can hardly be moved by two grown men. "10 minutes to play" now that was funny I'm a skilled mechanic and carpenter and took me at least two hours to assemble. Table came from factory with two hinge bracket on backwards so had to be removed and installed correctly. Also came with four left folding arms instead of two left and two right, still works but is not right. Net brackets are cheap and flimsy but seams like most are this way.

Good playing surface, terrible product

This table was a birthday and housewarming gift from my adult son, who is also a good and frequent player. We picked it up at the store (good customer service, helping us load the HEAVY carton on top of his vehicle), and took it home for "10 minutes from box to play," excited to get to use it that evening. His research had led him to choose this table, as a fast way to get going. Over two hours later, we two mechanically inclined guys stopped assembling, to wait for help lifting the HEAVY panels into place (two normal adults can't pull off this step in the assembly; a third is needed to guide the support tubes). Once together and ready for play, we found that the center of the table is 1/4" lower than the ends, and had to put shims under the wheels. The included net and hardware would be a bad joke even for a [$] table, and the net was too short to even reach the flimsy brackets; so I had to order a real net set, using c-clamps to hold the ends of the net straps to the supports while waiting for the real net. At first attempt to fold up the table for rollaway, I found that 3 of the 4 locking braces had been reverse-installed at the factory, and the fourth one was the wrong part. It took another hour lying under the propped-up table to swap brace positions, and re-install the wrong part in a way that it could function (relocated the bracket with 4 new holes in the bottom of the table).Each end of the 4 plastic playing surface corner protector caps protruded slightly above the plane of the playing surface and had to be fastened differently to be out of the way. Now it's a good table. Just be ready with at least 3 people, power tools, extra time, and lots of patience with the "10-minute" assembly instructions. I would not recommend this table, simply for its difficulty to make ready for high-level play.

10-minute setup time is a lie

The table itself is excellent. It is very high quality, sturdy, with good bounce on the ball. If I was evaluating just the table after it was assembled, I would give it 5 stars.But...they claim the "table goes from box to play-ready in just 10 minutes" is absurd. It took us 2 1/2 hours, and we are very mechanically inclined and have assembled many products before. In addition it takes 3 people to do one phase; 2 to lift a very heavy table half and another to guide it onto posts. Even people who have assembled this exact table before, could not assemble it in anything close to 10 minutes; there are just too many parts that need to be bolted together. I very seriously considered reporting Stiga to the FTC for false advertising. I just do not understand why they claim a 10-minute setup time; if they did not do this, I would have expected a long setup and would not have been very disappointed with the product, like I am now.

Not sure what table they sold me.

I thought I purchased this table. While it looks like this table I'm not sure if it can positioned into the one player mode since it did not include any reference to it. I noticed a different number on the box and when I pointed it out to the woman at the store she said they all had different numbers. When I got home and took it out of the box it was no easy put together. One package of screws had almost 200 of those particular screw alone. It took three long days of putting it together. They must have replaced it with a cheaper number. I would have returned it had I been able to physically gotten it back to them.

Top was cracked when I received it. DSG was very helpful in sending me a replacement. However, the replacement was slightly broken also. Shipping is very hard on this table, coming half way across the continent. Also, brackets under the table were put on backwards so I had to undo and reconstruct. Very heavy, sturdy table. The top is a pressed wood composite stuff that screws pull out of quite easily it seems. I'm not real impressed.

Brackets installed incorrectly.

The table would not fold up. After researching online I discovered that three brackets/elbow joints were installed incorrectly. The single bracket that was "out of place" was the only one that was installed correctly. The elbows of the brackets should move away from the bottom of the table when folding the table up. It's an easy fix with a screwdriver, hammer (brackets are glued and nailed)and a drill, it was an easy fix. After the screws are out give the brackets a good tap from the side and it will pop loose. Then reposition it (making sure table is level) drill just long enough for the bit to catch and then stop. Use a light trigger finger on the drill so you don't go through the top of the table. Also, ten minute setup is impossible. I would love to see someone do it in the advertised time.

Corner cover could have make better

The corner plastic peaces could have been made better, because one of it cracked a little right out of the box. The corner peices don't sit evenly with the table top. Can't get rid of the corner peices because the apron stop short of the corners. The wheel bracket cross board that keep the table align could be stronger board.

Manufacturer defects

The manufactures put the hinges that are screwed to the bottom on backwards at the factory. In the directios they mention if the brackets are backwards then you must redo them. Kindof a pain. Also my corner guards were scratched up and were a little crooked. For the money, I am happy with what I got.

Terrible packaging

This table was great [...] assembly is not going to take 15 minutes. more like 2 hours. The last thing is that this table is super heavy. It took 3 full grown men to put it into my dads truck. Besides that it looks like an awesome table and I can't weight to play on it.

Good playing surface

I liked this table [...]. Unfortunately table was sagging down in the center by almost an inch. They were not able to to fix it for me as it was a defective piece. I returned the table. [...] I wish there is better factory inspection on these tables.
