1) As with the other reviews, I too had trouble lining up the parts to connect them. I was trying to be careful, because it seemed that it would easy enough to break off any of the pieces that hold it together, then how do you connect it? Also, I feel that if you tried assemble & disassemble between uses, then you greatly increase of wearing down the connection pieces and thus snapping off a key piece of plastic. Thus plan to keep this assembled

2)Part of the product description says, "Sharpen your skills without need for a training partner." It's true you won't need a training partner, but you will need a 2nd person to help you run the thing. The second you turn it one it starts firing balls. No delay.

3) You get an AC adapter with something like a 4ft cord. Thus you better have an extension cord handy.

4) For the price they should have thrown in at least 50 one-star balls. . .anything to practice with. I was looking for the big bold letters that said "Balls Not Included". This would have been a good laugh if they had this on the packaging somewhere too.

5) Any kinda of device with dials gets me worried, but I have to say that the knobs felt firm and turned easy enough.

6) Yes, the motor is a bit loud, but big deal. It's a sports tool after all.

7) Running a bunch of balls through it, the machine seemed pretty consistent. About 5% of the balls would fly into the net

OVERALL: This product is the basic device to help someone practice. I took this to work and my co-worker who has no forehand skills to speak of was excited to try it out, as it could keep throwing balls to the same side and help him practice.
Is it worth the cost? That's for you to decide, considering it's all "manual" other than the actuall ball launching and you're paying for a motor surrounded by questionable plastic parts.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The iPong sits on the ping pong table and sends servers across the table perfect almost every time. Maybe 1 or 2 in a 100 misfires short. I'd say that's about as good as you get. I've never seen a baseball, tennis ball, or football thrower shoot 100% all the time.
The top spin, heavy top spin, and down-spin worked flawlessly for me. The only thing I would have liked to see is a delay on the first ball, since most of the time anyone uses this they will not have someone there to turn it on. You can slow down the serve speed so you won't miss too many balls on your way back to your side of the table after turning it on(1-2 balls missed).
There is no side spin option in case you are wondering.

After reading all the reviews here and on other IPONG suppliers websites. I was not completely convinced that IPONG was a very good TT robot. But I noticed that most of the reviews were old and when I contacted Joola they told me all their robots have been improved. Joola also told me that if I was not happy with my purchase I could return it for a replacement or get my money back.

So with that information I went ahead and bought the IPONG Original. Here is my review on my IPONG TT robot.
1st. People were complaining about the remote cord being to short. This has been fix and the cord can easily reach to your side of the table with no problem.
2nd. I read reviews were people complain about having someone to turn on the robot. Not really sure what they are talking about because the off, on switch is on the frequency knob on the remote.
3rd. Reviews said the robot jams frequently. Well, you need to make sure you have good clean 3* TT balls to start off with. I bought Gambler Platinum 40mm 3* in orange and they work great in the robot. They are also probably the best buy you can get when buying bulk TT balls.

Overall I think that Joola has made many improvements on their IPONG robots. I will admit that the robot feels like it is made very cheep with thin plastic, 3 motors and a couple of wheel's. But hey, its not made for tennis balls and does what it is designed to do. I just wish I would have thought of this decause it is such a simple design. LoL

I have only had my TT robot for a few days now and I think for the money you won't be disappointed. And they have a really good return policy with a one year replacement or your money back within 3 month's. That's pretty good if you ask me.

I would like to focus this review on what the iPong is and not try and compare it with other more expensive robots. So if you are in the market for a full featured robot, my advice is to invest in those robots. BUT if you want a fair product eval on the iPong Original than please read on.

I bought the iPong because I don't have the budget to invest in a Newgy or like robot. I play at the office almost every day and at least once a week at my local TT club. With that said I am a total noob to table tennis and I am not very good. I figure a robot would be a great training aid and with the lack of a friend that shares my desire to get better I needed something. Enter the iPong!

My first impression when unpacking the iPong was; it's really well made. I know these types of items are mass produced, but JOOLA put some thought into designing this and use higher end materials in the process. It's really easy to put together, 5 stars on packaging and assembly.

I put it on the table and plugged it in, started it up and tested with some practice balls. The first thing I noticed was the noise, it's pretty loud, and the faster you make the back or top spin the louder it gets. This is not a major issue, it's just the first thing I noticed.
Once I dialed in the settings I started to hit, and at first I blamed the iPong for serving the ball wrong and that's why I was crushing them into the net. Then I came to the realization that I am really bad at TT and the iPong was just serving the ball close to the net where I never really play.
Another feather in JOOLA's cap, I like to believe they thought about this and engineered the iPong to keep the ball low. I think over time this will make me a better player. 3 stars for noise, 5 stars for challenging me.
