I've played one of these tables. The lights suck and got turned off after 10 minutes and the whole table was so happy. Overall probably not a horrible table for the price.I would say "no". Lights, when used at all, should be behind some type of diffuser. Otherwise it's just too harsh to look at.
I’d wait for the price to drop. Last month it dropped to $149 but could have just been holiday discount?i'm in the market as well, currently wallmart has the ESPN for $199 and the ugly brown for $189. worth the $10! the blue one looks better but that is $229 and has no lights! what do you guys think about the ESPN one and if i hate it recovering with SSC! i could also put a diffuser on the light rail to make it fun but not annoying. thoughts?
Skip the lights and just get the regular Barrington table, then spend the $60 you saved on some SSC from YAC. I recovered the one I picked up last year in about 90 mins.Oh it's alllllllll about the lights. Just trying to determine if it's worth $60 extra.
Or get both!
@T_Chan can make a folding table, and it folds inwardly so the top is protected. There’s one shown on PCF somewhere. If I have time later, I’ll see if I can track it down.Or get both!
Would get a Chan if he sold folding tables
