What It Is Good For?

This is a great low cost foosball table that will last, and our friends over at Gaming Weekender think it’s an excellent home foosball table for families. Even after three months, the quality still looks as good as it did the day you purchased it. This is a good buy for a home table to entertain or an office. It will stand up to the kids as they play hard and have a good time. It will also stand up to the office workers that are frustrated and need something to take that frustration out on. This table is a great product overall and has minimal complaints. It will be a great choice for your at home residence or office to keep you and yours entertained for a long time to come. The kids will love it, and the adults will probably like it even more.

What It Is Not So Good For?

This is not the product for you if you are looking for a fancy product. This table is nice, yes, but it is not designed to look fancy. It is made to be a product for families and basically, for entertainment purchases. It is not good for someone that is not great with assembly as this product is not known for being simple to put together. There are a few obvious things it is not meant for. Don’t let your kids stand on it or sit on it. It is not a dining room table or a workshop table either. This table will last a good long time as long as you treat it as what it is. Over the years even I have been guilty of using items for something other than their intended use, but that’s not how to make your hard earned money last.

This is a product that overall, we would recommend to anyone looking for a foosball table. It is long lasting and overall is a good quality product. It has some flaws, the panels have been said to come bent or crooked, the screws are known to come in too short, and there are also known issues with tightening the bolts too much. It is not all bad though, with a few long extra screws lying around you could easily fix half of what we just went over.

While it may be true you could find a better quality table, this table offers a good value for the money. The fact is that you may find a better price on another model but chances are it will be a table of even less quality. Some of you probably think that these tables are too expensive for you, but now there is at least one that’s not. Treat your home or office to this delight today and you won’t regret it!
