Air Hockey Tables Better Business Bureau Reliability Seal

Best Air Hockey Tables

Does your rec room seem empty? Do you need another game to fill the space between your pool table and ping-pong table? If so, an air hockey table might be just the thing for you.

Air hockey is a game in which two competing players try to score points in the opposing player's goal. To play air hockey, you must have a table, two mallets, and a puck. Mallets (aka goalies, strikers, or paddles) consist of a handle attached to a flat surface that lies flush with the air hockey table's surface. Air hockey tables consist of a large, smooth, playing surface that is surrounded by a rail. Two slots at either end of the table serve as goals, and puck returns can usually be found below them.

Wayfair

WAYFAIR Visit Site

TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award Wayfair sells a large variety of products to outfit your game room. They have a huge selection of over 50 air hockey tables to choose from, ranging in size, price, and quality. For example, you can purchase anything from a low-end $56 tabletop version to a $5,789 professional arcade style model.

To help narrow down your search for the right air hockey table, Wayfair provides a variety of search parameters. You can search the tables based on type, application, price range, customer rating, shipping speed, features, height, width, depth, brand, and shipping location. This makes finding the right table that fits your needs easy and fun.

Another feature that we liked are the customer reviews for air hockey tables. Purchasers can provide feedback on the air hockey table they purchased, and provide unique viewpoints based on their experience. This feature is extremely helpful for buyers trying to compare air hockey tables and make a selection from the many choices offered.

Wayfair has a very consumer-friendly return policy. If you're not satisfied with a purchase for any reason, you can return your purchase within 30 days of receipt for an exchange or a refund of the purchase price excluding their shipping and handling costs.

Recrooms

RECROOMS Visit Site

Recrooms specializes in game room equipment from air hockey tables, darts, foosball, pinball, and more. Shoppers will find both a strong selection of quality name-brand air hockey tables at Recrooms, and customer friendly policies as well. This company has been in the game room business since 1997 and has a strong following of happy customers.

When comparing selection and pricing to some of the big name air hockey retailers, we found that Recrooms is very competitive. From our sampling, not only are their daily prices equal to or lower than several others, but Recrooms also has a coupon offer on their website that provides an additional savings ranging from $50 to $200. Curbside delivery is always free on purchases over $49 at this retailer, which is another savings opportunity over some online stores. For those looking for more than curbside delivery, Recrooms provides inside delivery service for an additional $149, and delivery and installation service for $299 - which, in our opinion, is worth the money for a several-hundred-pound air hockey table. Additionally, Recrooms has a price match guarantee that means they will match a competitor's price of the same air hockey table, when it meets certain qualifications. Their website clearly outlines the price match policy.

The Recrooms website provides several positive customer testimonials, although it doesn't offer specific air hockey table reviews or ratings. Their search engine was also not as sophisticated as some of the larger companies. For example, we weren't able to sort by price or brand. However, it didn't take long to browse their large selection, and we didn't find this to be a major turn-off to shopping at Recrooms.

If you're not satisfied with your purchase, Recrooms provides customers 30 days to return any unused products in the original packaging for a refund, minus the cost of shipping, as well as a 20% restocking fee. Recrooms has specific policies on how to manage returns for products that are received damaged in shipping. You'll need to report any problems within 24 hours of receipt.

Overall, Recrooms offers a very nice selection of top-quality air hockey tables at competitive prices. The variety of air hockey tables and feedback from Recrooms customers pushed this company towards the top of our list. If you're in the market for an air hockey table, Recrooms definitely deserves a look.

Dazadi

DAZADI Visit Site

Family-owned Dazadi was developed as a result of four brother's love of sports and gaming. The company offers several types of sporting/gaming equipment, including a large selection of air hockey tables. However, with few exceptions, Dazadi's tables are priced about 15% to 20% higher than the top-rated selection. Community relations and support are valuable to the company, and customers may appreciate the fact that Dazadi donates 5% of their sales to organizations such as Boys and Girls clubs.

Dazadi's website is somewhat distracting to the eye and not as easy to navigate as the top-rated sites. The website allows customers to search based on price, size, and brand, but it does not offer any "expert" guidance in selecting a table. Users are given the option of reviewing and rating products; however, none of the tables appeared to have any customer feedback at the time of our review. The ability to view feedback about air hockey table offerings is a highly beneficial feature of the top-rated websites.

Items returned within 30 days in new, ready-to-sell condition will receive a full refund, less shipping costs and any applicable restocking fees. "Free shipping" only applies to items that are not returned (this policy is similar to most of the reviewed websites).

Because the company offers so many products, Dazadi does not provide the same focus and expertise as the top-rated websites who do much of the legwork for customers by comparing and rating various air hockey table selections for them. Additionally, Dazadi's prices are slightly higher. However, buyers may appreciate the fact that 5% of the company's proceeds help support community programs.

Dick's Sporting Goods

DICK'S SPORTING GOODS Visit Site

Dick's Sporting Goods is a well know chain, which has over 250 stores in the country. For this reason, customers may feel more inclined to purchase from the company. We found their prices to be similar to the top-rated websites; however, shipping charges increased their pricing by 15% to 20%. Additionally, Dick's Sporting Goods' selection of air hockey tables is minimal at only 14 air hockey tables. In this way they fall short of other websites, which offer 40 or more alternatives.

The website is easy to navigate and has a professional appearance. Product ratings and reviews are listed as a feature of the website; however, at the time of this review, none of the air hockey tables had either. It was also not clear whether any of the tables were offered at any of the Dick's Sporting Goods physical store locations. This information would be helpful for customers wishing to avoid shipping costs.

Extended service contracts are available, as well as a six-month, interest-free promotions for customers opening a credit account with Dick's Sporting Goods. If you're not satisfied with an item you purchased, you may return the item within 30 days of delivery for a full refund of the purchase price, minus the shipping, handling, gift wrap, or other additional charges. The company does not accept exchanges at this time.

While Dick's Sporting Goods is a reputable chain, customers will be better served by purchasing from companies who specialize in air hockey tables. The top-rated websites provide features that Dick's Sporting Goods does not, including ratings and reviews, helpful information regarding the game, competitive pricing, and a wider selection of air hockey tables.

Competitive Edge Products

COMPETITIVE EDGE PRODUCTS Visit Site

Competitive Edge Products Inc. is a company that sells basketball equipment, tables, chairs, accessories, and exercise equipment. They are also an authorized reseller of Lifetime Products: basketball systems, picnic tables, garden equipment, exercise equipment, and office equipment.

Their website offers a limited selection of 13 air hockey tables, ranging in price from $299.99 to $899.00. At the time of this review, the company offered free shipping on DMI Sport air hockey tables. Free shipping was also offered on orders over $1500.00. Shipping on other products started at $250.00. Competitive Edge Products Inc. claims that they can match or beat most online prices; however, this leaves it up to the customer to compare Competitive Edge Products Inc.'s air hockey table prices with other companies. The website also lacked customer reviews or guidance on top-rated tables.

If an item is damaged when received, Competitive Edge Products Inc. will replace the damaged part/item free of charge. If the buyer chooses to return the item for any other reason (buyer's remorse, for example), they must pay return shipping charges and a 20% restocking fee. Shipping and handling charges will not be reimbursed. Therefore, if you are purchasing a product that has "free shipping," actual shipping costs will be deducted from your return refund. The return must be done within 30 days of the original purchase. Additionally, items must arrive in resalable condition in the original packaging. Items that do not meet these requirement may be refused.

Competitive Edge Products Inc. lacks the expertise and specialized attention offered by the top-rated websites. This, along with their limited selection and higher pricing, makes this company one of the lowest-rated selections.

Continued from above

Most air hockey tables have a mechanism that produces a cushion of air on the playing surface to reduce friction and increase the speed of play. However, less expensive tables do not provide this air cushion and merely consist of a slick, plastic, playing surface.

Around 1969, air hockey was invented by a trio of Brunswick engineers (Phil Crossman, Bob Kenrick, and Brad Baldwin) who were attempting to create a game using a frictionless surface. Their game never quite took off, and it was put aside for several years. Bob Lemieux later resurrected the project in the early 1970's and refined the game.

By the mid-1970's, there was a large interest in air hockey tournament play. Today, serious air hockey playing bases can be found near Houston, Sacramento, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, New York, Maryland, and Boston. Worldwide, air hockey hubs can be found in cities in Spain, Russia, and the Czech Republic.

When looking for an air hockey table, there are certain factors you need to consider. Some of these include:

  • Selection. Does the website offer a variety of air hockey tables to choose from?
  • Return Policy. Does the company enable you to return products for a full refund? How many days do you have to make returns?
  • Expertise. Does the website specialize in air hockey tables? Does the company provide information to help you make your table selection?
