I wouldn't buy this set again but I'm not sending it back either. The value is adequate for the price but I think there are other sets of equal price or maybe a little more that are better.
The set looks good and feels good in the hands. The bishops are beautiful and tough! The barrels on the king, queen and rooks are very smooth and that feels great. They are pleasant to hold and touch. The knights look good but the bright shiny materials lack contrast and make it hard to discern any detail. The felt on the bottom is an acceptable weight.
The pieces have odd proportions though. The rooks and pawns are too big. If those were made smaller this would be a 5 star product. I say that even though I don't like black/ivory sets and prefer black/natural(camel).
The set I received had cardboard wrapped around the crowns of two of the queens but not the other two. The reason for that was that the crowns have very fragile spikes that break off easily. The ones that were protected were fine but one of the others had two spikes broken off.
If the proportions of the rook and pawns were changed and the queen's crown were redesigned I would probably buy a second generation version of this set as it is otherwise quite good.
If you do get this you will need a board with 2 1/4 sqares.
