Rated 4 out of 5★ by DarkBlueInk Nice Table for Recreational Family Use Actually very happy with this air hockey table. At 6' it is a mid-sized table, best suited to 1-on-1 play. For small kids 2-on-2 play is possible, but tight.This was our second attempt at purchasing a table through Walmart. I had the first table (a different brand) shipped directly to the house with poor results and had to return it. I chose the Hathaway Midtown table after visiting the Hathaway web site and was sold on their pitch that they package their tables better. I decided on ship-to-store in hopes that the box would arrive in better shape and, in fact, it did. I didn't find shipping dimensions in the description before ordering, but gambled that it would fit in the back of a 2014 Ford Explorer. It does, laying flat, just barely.Assembly was very easy, took less than an hour for one person and only requires that you provide a screw driver. It does require two people to move the box and then stand up the table after assembly (it weighs about 140 lbs). Given the construction of the table, I would be very careful using a drill/driver. Holes were pre-drilled so a #2 Philips head screwdriver worked fine. Quality is what you should expect at this price point. Lots of pressboard and plastic. The wiring seems solid; not loose at all. The parts mostly fit together as intended and there were no missing parts. You could probably assemble the table without the use of the assembly instructions, which is a good thing because the instructions are very sparse.Overall, I like the look of the table and it fits with other items in our game room. I deducted a star for 2 items: (1) the holes on one corner for attaching the legs were badly aligned. Right now only 2 of 3 bolts are holding that corner, but it is still solid and I will be drilling another hole for the third bolt. (2) The angle of the product picture doesn't show you that there is an ugly gap between the legs and the main part of the table. Our table happens to be at the top of some stairs, so it is very visible upon entering the room. It is also visible while sitting on a couch across the room.The table comes with 2 pushers and 2 small pucks. The pucks have a tendency to fly out of the goal box and onto the floor. It looks like you could use the larger size pucks. The paint on the surface of the table feels rough to the touch (rough like flat paint) and I was worried it would affect play. So far it has not. No problems with the electronic scorer once I realized that it required 4 AA batteries (not included and not mentioned in the assembly instructions). The power cord is very short. If the table is not next to a wall and within about 3 feet of an electrical outlet, then you will need an extension cord. The table has 2 on/off switches: one on the table and one inline in the power cord.So far (3 days), I am happy with this table. I knew going into it that it was not arcade quality (or size) and so I think it has been a good value. It's not the cheapest or the biggest, but it arrived without damage and works as expected. I would definitely recommend the table (and Walmart ship-to-store), 01/13/2014
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Mart9 Very nice! Love the table! It is the perfect size for my grand kids play room. I had it shipped to the store and it was in great shape when I picked it up. The packaging of the table was also awesome I was really surprised. It took no time putting it together. Pretty easy just had to deal with a really tight space to attach legs. I'm a women and my hands are very small and it was still kind of hard to get hand inside space to tighten screws. I don't know how a man does it unless he has a special tool. I was using the one that came with the table. You will need someone to help you set the table up after you attach the legs since it weighs 140 lbs.The electronic scorer works good and even has cheering sounds when you score lol. The puck will fly out of the goal box when hit in to hard so I may try a bigger size. Don't really like the plastic on the corners or felt on bottom of the strikers but this table is not arcade quality so it will do for the price. This is a wonderful table very sturdy, not to big and great for adults and kids. 01/26/2014
