tuve 2 a±os con el puedo decir que es un excelente compa±ero de entrenamiento, posee muchas opciones para entrenar, inclusive uno mismo puede programar ejercicios y controlarlos desde la laptop o PC, el oscilador es preciso y el robot responde muy bien.
El efecto es graduable siendo el maximo increible, cosa que ayuda a uno mucho para practicar recepci³n de saques o ataques a pelotas cortadas,la velocidad del dispara pelolas es excelente ayudandolo a uno con el trabajo de pies, en mi cao me ayudo mucho con eso y para los contraataques en fin un excelente Robot a un excelente precio, lo unico malo es que hay que recojer pelotas pero con una malla es el robot ideal. SUPER RECOMENDADO

I got this robot about two months ago and it has helped me alot. It even provides a great workout for my Coach who was rate 1200 in the world!

Just got it today, played with it for an hour. No problems at all.
Digital control is great, but the real gem is you can set to random POSITION and random SPEED, which is much more difficult than playing predictable sweeping robots like SuperMaster or older Newgy 1040.
Imagine shot goes long left with high topspin, another short right with low topspin, etc, randomly. Pretty realistic opponent.
How does it work?
1) First you choose top or back spin (with or without sidespin).
2) Then you choose either fixed position or run in random oscillation mode and/or random speed mode.
I recommend starting off with fixed position to get used to robot. Then set random POSITION. Play with that a bit. Then turn on random SPEED too. Now it's a strong unpredictable opponent!
There is no paddle movement to give you hint. The head oscillation is completely silent, so you can't "game" the system by trying to hear how many clicks it turned.
The top speed on this thing is pretty fast. They say 75mph at the "30" setting. I set it to 2 balls per sec at max speed just to see what happens. Picture a guy covering his head and running for cover...hahaha...
And yes, people are correct. The backspin on faster speeds is so incredibly strong, you have to dial back the speed to be realistic. Or setup the head to "serve" the backspin to you.
Lastly, make sure you buy the Catch Net II + Side Nets for $80. Well worth money since it has funnel at bottom for easy refills. It took me 30 mins to put together, a bit confusing. But once done, nice product.
If Rumplestiltskin asked for firstborn or Newgy 1050, I think I'd hand him firstborn.
