Good product but let down by packaging and transport
on 25 September 2013
I ordered two. Boards are fit for purpose and the finish is good too. I ordered two for use in our kitchen for magnetic attachment of cards and reminders plus the whiteboard for messages. The boards were packed in cardboard with tons of sticky tape that was a trial to remove. Despite all the packaging, both boards had suffered some damage - to the white area and what looks like long straight dents - so probably either in transit or storage. Not critical for me as areas mostly covered by magnetically attached cards etc. but if you wanted it as mainly a whiteboard for writing on then you'll likely to be dissappointed - a good product let down by carlessness somewhere along the line.
The magnetic properties are a bit weak - I have used much more expensive boards at work and magnets stick to those well but these boards have a very thin sheet so you need strong magnets to hold anything except a postcard. I thought this might be the case so had got some rare-earth magnets, which work fine with these boards.
