A good and cheap robot! U can use topspin, backspin and oscillation (that means it goes from fh to bh). And another setting is that u choose how often the balls have to come. In the lowest, the ball comes about 2 seconds after each other and in the highest they come really really fast and its hard to take all the balls. A bad thing is that when u play sometimes the robot changes spin suddenly for a ball or 2. So when u are playing on fh topspins, there can suddenly come a ball backspined or 2 and it goes straight down. For the price its a very good robot, sometimes it jam but thats easy to fix.

Got mine halfway the month of June.
The remote works flawless and is easy to understand.
Good spin on the balls.
Ball trajectory isn't always the same so it takes some time to set it up right at the end of the table, a small wedge comes in handy sometimes.
Construction wise the whole robot looks and feels flimsy, cheaply manufactured.
Oscillator function does not live up to my expectation.
Real color isn't as bright red as on the pictures (I know, it's cosmetic)
Mine broke down after 4 or 5 sessions of approximately 1 hour and it's in repairs now for more than 6 weeks. Hopefully the repaired one will last must longer but with the fragile construction in mind I fear the worst.
Used it in combination with a Joola retrieving net.
I'll get back with this review after I tested my repaired robot.
After 9 weeks, the robot is still in repairs. Retailer is pointing at Joola, Joola is pointing at retailer. I'm stuck in the middle unfortunately.
Almost forgot to write again. I got it back in September, de middle part (the robot part) was new. After a few tries the problems were the same as with the first robot: Irregular flight paths and regular ball jams. I've sold the thing in March. I know, it wasn't expensive, but I really don't know how the robot has won some prizes.

Time to time I use it in our local club, which is a Joola partner.
It has limited gears, and no sidespin. Gets jammed time to time.
When oscillating at max underspin about 20% of the balls are shot over the table. For it's price it is more than affordable fitness partner on boring days.
