Rated 3 out of 5?by PDEJosh Ok board - great price
Purchased this for a classroom space that gets used a few hours a week; Needed something in-stock locally, at a decent price and that was magnetic. It works well and was easy to mount. It's clearly not a high quality board and does ghost a bit, but it's not terrible. The mounting brackets are plastic and a little delicate, and I have noticed that the board bows away from the wall a little - planning to add extra brackets on the vertical edges to help that.
All in all I think a very reasonable value for the price - after using this for a few weeks as a test I did purchase a second to go in the room and will add a third eventually. If you want something for heavy daily use I'd spend the money and buy a higher end board - but for light use this is a great price.

In less than a month it became unusable due to bow and warping - which resulted in a giant bubble that spanned the board.

This board is large in size yet after hung on the wall began to bow outward, even while fastened at the top and bottom. Manager at the store offered to allow a return, however too big to get into a vehicle.
Would not recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5?by Javapapa Great value!
Searched the Internet for marker boards and alternatives (tile board, paint, 3M film, etc). Went to Office Depot, almost didn't see it, only a product tag on the shelf, too big to display on shelves.
Smaller versions of Foray products looked good, ordered the 4'x7' and will use daughter's pickup truck to transport to my office 2 miles away. Hope the white finish lasts; steel backed boards this size often cost $300 or more.
FWIW, I try to stay away from using colored markers, they have dyes which tend to penetrate, black markers leave carbon particles, easier to clean. Can't tell from specs if white coating is melamine or enamel. Hope the latter.
