Cons: It hangs like a picture from hangers on the back, which means the bottom isn't attached to the wall and if you're pulling something off the bottom of the board with a magnet or pushpin the board will pull away from the wall. It would be nice to have a way to attach the bottom of the board to make it more secure. I'm considering drilling holes through the bottom corners of the board to make it more solid.
Also, the sawtooth hangers on the back were offset by 1/8 inch. If I hadn't noticed and measured carefully when I drilled my holes into the wall, it would be hanging crooked and I would have had to drill new holes. Finally, the sheet metal around the corners is bent on one side, so the manufacturing is a bit sloppy.
Overall a nice board that should work for my purposes but the quality could be better.
I've been looking for a bulletin board for several months but a cork board would like ugly in my office. And boards that are framed and having whatever cloth material are either expensive or just won't fit with my furniture. The reviews of this product looked good. Some of the reviewers gave the great advice of using a measuring tape and making sure that this board is not too small for your needs. I think that is a great advice. I did just that and where I wanted to hang it the size seemed perfect. So I ordered it. It arrived in a perfect condition. It was easy to hang on the wall and it looks quite modern. Its color merges while with my iMac and It is always in my vision field. A great reminder for things that I need to follow up on.
I prefer to use the magnets over the push pins which is a person choice. If you have several papers together or a large envelope then the magnet won't hold and a push pin becomes necessary.
Right now I have on it a family photo for my kids. Zoo tickets. Stamps which I always manage to misplace. I reminder to call for my annual physical. A mail receipt to remind me to to follow on a warranty replacement and a couple of more items.
If you have an office with limited wall space and looking for a bulletin board to help you follow the things you need, or a person who wants his or her own bulletin board. Or a family with tons of activities that need something more than a wall calendar, then this should do it.
To be honest if you are reading this review then the chances are this is the right product for you. Just get a measuring tape and make sure this is the right size and spend some money.
