Poor Performance & Poor ConstructionJun 10, 2011
By Gregory P. Finn
I ordered 5 of these for my office, and will most likely have 5 of these in the garbage within a few months. First off - these look nice out of the box, with the shelf for markers and have a easy guide for hanging on the wall. However, all 5 of the board we recieved where crooked, like they were put together incorrectly. When one side of the board was touching the wall, the other would stick about an inch out. I figured that with some velcro I could easily fix the issue.
However, the biggest issue arose when trying to use the board for writing on - multiple times. I will also preface this comment by saying that I used brand new expo dry erase markers and expo dry erase board cleaner. After one use with a standard blue color, I simply could not remove the marker. I tried the standard dry erase board eraser and it just smeared the writing across the board, staining it. When I tried to remove it with cleaner - nothing happened. I now have a once-used, very blue board, with no way of cleaning it. I have included pictures with this review as well to support this.
I would not recommend these at all as they are a very poor product

Perfect! I love itOct 07, 2010
By Steve McQueen
I bought this item with Amazon prime delivery. I figured that Amazon will not mess up the shipping as other sellers may do.
As expected, the board arrived this morning in perfect condition double boxed by Amazon. The seller was PLEXSUPPLY (I don't know if it makes any difference. I just went for the one available with prime shipping).
The board is up and looks beautiful. I am so glad I bought it on Amazon and not a special order on Staples store for $40 more than what I paid here.
**** Update: November 5 2010 *****
It's been about a month and the board is performing well. My last board (that I bought at a local store) started staining and becoming permanent after a month or so, no mater how well I cleaned it. This board works well and keeps clean. I use it extensively every day, so I would know by now if something is not right. Overall I am very happy with this purchase.

Exactly What I Was Looking For!Dec 11, 2007
By S. Nadler
I got this whiteboard for my small business. It works great for my purposes. So far I have not had any issues with erasing the board and I have in the past with other boards. Erases clean and completly. Also, very easy to mount.
I looked around the net for a better price at the same size board, and could not find it. Good price, good size.

totally warpedJan 03, 2011
By Non-Profit User
This board was great for about 2 months, and then suddenly warped to the point where the bottom right corner actually bent out from the wall about 10 inches. The back is made of cardboard, so the overall product is flimsy. I am throwing it away today, and I am going to replace it with a higher quality board. This product is definitely not a good choice.

Damaged, incredibly flimsyMar 18, 2013
By Dave Cullen
This is going right back. For me, worthless.
My instinct was to give it 1 star, but for some it may be appropriate.
I hoped the awful reviews were exaggerating, because some people were very happy with it. My assumption now is that those people were willing to settle for a somewhat junky, flimsy starter model for the right price. That's reasonable.
It really is composed of about 1/4 inch of cardboard backing, so it can't sustain its own weight. If you even lean it against a wall temporarily, it bends into that shape. (The weight of 7 pounds is the giveaway. Picture how substantial that can be, at this rather large size. When shopping for better models after this, I looked at that closely. Heavy doesn't necessarily mean good, but ultra-light insures flimsy.)
If you want to tack it up and just deal with it, that's OK. I wanted something I could use every day, map out my next book on and feel good about. Not some junk up on the wall.
Mine also arrived with almost no packaging protection, which resulted in a bent frame and two gaping holes--so it had to go back regardless. (I'm dumbfounded why they are wasting so much money by shipping these things out this way, with so many reviews reporting sending them back damaged.)
Also, I researched on non-sales sites, and melamine is considered pretty good material, but "porcelain" (meaning painted steel, usually) is best, because the steel is so much less porous. Ghosting occurs because of the particles absorbed into the base material. Wood is always going to absorb several times more than metal, which absorbs almost nothing.
I did much more shopping/researching after this model came. I eventually settled on the "Flash Furniture WY-99-90120-POR-GG 4-Feet Width by 3-Feet Height Porcelain Magnetic Marker Board, White" on Amazon for $96 at the same size (3x4 feet).
So far, I'm extremely happy. It's sturdy and heavy enough (25 pounds), yet light enough to easily lift and maneuver. It erases perfectly so far, and it's magnetic to boot. It looks/feels beautiful. There are no bends or warps, all perfect right angles.
And the porcelain one came with four levels of packaging: an outer cardboard case, then particle-board protectors on either side inside (the full size of the board), then a plastic bag, and finally, an adhesive layer of plastic you have to strip off the full marker surface. (That was actually a little hard to get off, but well worth it to insure it's protected from even tiny dings.) It was snug in there, with no imperfections. I highly recommend it.
