The table was a good price and it came unscratched an within a week. I knew it would require assembly, put I did not know that I would have to drill hole in the table. It cam with NO DIRECTIONS and NO TEMPLATE for drilling small hole for the screws to attach to the undereside. It is possible, I think, not to drill (the core is particle board), but I wasn't sure. Assembly of the pedestal was a little tricky. Instructions would have been helpful. Took me about 45 min. to get everything set up. The table top has two finishes to choose from, one on either side. Clever idea. The color I chose on line was the same as the product. The table is sturdy enough and is working for me just as I had hoped.
This is a very practical table to have around. It can be used for extra seating at dinner parties, a buffet table, or makeshift desk/work surface. When not in use, it can be easily stored by folding the legs. It is very sturdy, yet not so heavy that it can not be moved. I was a little concerned that the 96" table might be prone to weakness/sagging in the center, but I can only see that maybe happening if someone loads the middle of it to its full 800lb limit. The beefy table top is supported the entire length by a steel frame. The cantilevered leg system is set back so that your legs will not make contact. I researched these "seminar" tables quite a bit before I pulled the trigger on this NPS model. It might be more expensive than the other brand, but you'll understand why when you see the quality of the product. Overstock shipped this product lightning fast too. I had it two days after I ordered it. I'm very happy with the table and Overstock.
