Pros and Cons of Carmelli Driftwood 7 Ft Air Hockey Table Combo Set with Benches:

Pros:

  • Large surface (7 ft)
  • 3-in-1 multi-purpose table
  • Durable MDF and melamine
  • Built-in automatic puck return system
  • Aesthetically pleasing

Cons:

  • Not portable
  • Expensive

Pros:

1. Large Playing Surface

Since this table is recommended for ages 8 and above, it is best suited for teenagers and adults. A larger playing surface is not only more fun but it can also be used for two-player games. The table offers a suitable amount of space as a dining table as well since it can fit a small family.

2. Multi-purpose Table

Since the price tag is so high, the brand has designed the table to be used for more than one purpose. As mentioned above, it is not only an air hockey table but also a dining table which can be used for playing table tennis as well.

The best part about this table is that it is very easy to assemble and allows for a quick change over by attaching the desired table top. It also comes with all the accessories required for the games i.e. 4 pucks, 4 mallets, 2 table tennis balls, 2 table tennis bats and a table tennis net.

3. Durable MDF and Melamine

As the name suggests, this table is made of wood which is generally considered to be one of the best materials for an air hockey table. In addition to this, since the MDF used is CARB certified, it creates a guarantee for the customer that the table will withstand well under frequent use. The table is also coated with melamine (a material that is often used in crockery to prevent it from breaking). This means that it will last you years before you have to replace it.

4. Built-in Automatic Puck Return System

This table is loaded with features that add to convenience while playing. One of them is the built-in automatic puck return system. When a goal is scored, the puck is subsequently returned to the table from the goal box without any manual effort. This allows for a smooth and disrupted gameplay.

Other additional features include an electronic scoring system and a competition air blower system that allow for a great playing experience.

5. Aesthetically Pleasing

While the appearance of an air hockey table is generally a factor that drives the price up and is important to many consumers, it is even more important in the case of this table. This is because as a dining table it can be used to serve guests and a visually appealing table creates a better impression.

The reason why it is aesthetically pleasing is because of the driftwood as well as the melamine which gives it a clean outlook. Plus, its added features like the electronic scorer give it a more classy look. The tabletops are also very simple and sleek in terms of color and design.

Cons:

1. Not Portable

While this table offers many uses, it weighs approximately 256 pounds which means that once you have assembled it, it will be very difficult to move it around. Thus, it has to be stationed in one place which can be a nuisance for some people because a game table and a dining table are usually placed in two separate rooms. Moreover, it is large in size so it requires a big room for comfortable playing.

2. Expensive

This table costs above $1000 (the price varies on different websites) which is a hefty investment. While this table features many things, this price tag may not justify the value of money for some consumers.

Consumer Reviews & Ratings:

At the time of writing, the Carmelli Driftwood air hockey table combo set had not received any review on Amazon. It did, however, receive a rating of 5 out of 5 stars from 1 customer.

Bottom line:

The Carmelli Driftwood Air Hockey Table Combo Set is best suited for home use as opposed to arcade use. This is because its multi-purpose functions fulfill the needs of families who want to play games for fun and dine in together. The table is also suitable for individuals who want to practice for professional air hockey or table tennis as its surface area is similar to that of professional tables.
