Although it takes up quite a bit of space, for those with room I would highly recommend this table. It is study, heavy duty, and built to last. I think that it weighs somewhere around two to three hundred pounds. I would suggest having it delivered. It took three guys to move it into the family room where they spent the next few hours putting it together. They all thought that set up was fairly easy using the tools that most people would have on hand. I think it took a couple of hours to put it together and after a few adjustments it was ready for play. The table looks good, and we found that is was well made. It's not quite as easy as one would think to fold and store and we determined that it was just to big for our family room so we decided to return it for something smaller. However for quality, for the price and value, I would highly recommend this product. The only other negative that I found was the quality of the paddles and net. They didn't look like the quality that I expected and I think that they could be a little better quality. Undoubtedly if we would have kept the table we would have felt that they needed to be replaced with a better quality.
