Hello everyone! I am going to, once again, go over a review for a gaming item. This time around, I will be explaining an item not relating to billiards, but a product relating to the game of ping pong/table tennis.
Introducting the Robo-Pong 2040 Table Tennis Machine by Newgy. I found this on Amazon, and decided to promote this item as it has mostly favorable reviews that is more than 4.0 out of 5 stars. I am going be trying to promote products that are over 4.0 or closest to 5 stars on this site as per my About Me page.
There was a scene in the movie, Forrest Gump, where the main character, Forrest Gump who is played by Tom Hanks was swatting a ping pong ball where it would richochet against another ping table that’s standing upright as shown towards the beginning of the video below. To me this resembled like he was playing against a machine, and this gave me the inspiration to go over this ping pong machine.

There were 23 customers in total who have rated this product at 4.3 out of 5 stars at the time of this posting. I would also state that I have never used this item, but if you are a ping pong enthusiast, I would definitely recommend this ping pong machine based on the customer reviews and the rating.
One of the positive reviews was, “…a local table tennis academy has the Robo Pong for 2 years and it remains trouble-free despite daily use.”
Another positive reviewer stated, “Good quality and excellent manual!!”
On the flip side of the coin, there were critical reviews as well.
One critical reviewer stated, “ The pingpong balls started to get stuck in minutes.”
A second critical reviewer has said, “It came with defective parts.”

Newgy Industries, Inc. was found by Joseph E. Newgarden, Jr, who is a ping pong enthusiast. He originally started working on the table tennis robot as a hobby in 1972. Three years later his hobby became a business. The table tennis robot took 16 years of research and development before its first commercial release in 1988.
The Robo-Pong machine debuted to rave reviews from the table tennis community. It is a pattern that has continued with each new generation of Robo-Pong table tennis robots.
Newgy’s innovations and various programs, such as their Table Tennis School Programs and Table Tennis Training Center located in Hendersonville, Tennessee were designed to bring the sport of table tennis into the mainstream in the USA.
