I recommend this product.
The product is priced fairly. The only issues we have had are: 1) the tips on the darts do not last long at all and 2) the electronics stay on all the time. we had to remove the batteries to get it to turn off
Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Complete Set
Cons: Wears Easily

Acceptable dartboard with cheating comp

I do not recommend this product.
I use this dartboard as a practice/warmup board for my competitive cricket darts league. I use 18g unicorn darts with the Unicorn brand "Gripper" tips. I don't get very many bounce-outs. Thinner dart tips would probably be better though. The board seems to be very accurate in terms of scoring. However, there is only a small outer ring outside the beds, so make sure to protect the mounting wall with suitable material to avoid damaging the wall or your darts. There is no wire in the double bull, which makes it seem bigger than Arachnid boards I've played on. However it is greatly appreciated that the beds have more holes than most of the other "affordable" dartboards out there. One gripe is that there is no way to change the score of a dart that was recorded incorrectly. This is a basic functionality of most dartboards. My biggest gripe is the unbeatable, cheating computer which you can play against. On difficulty 2 out of 5, you couldn't beat the computer if you were poking the dartboard with your finger. I haven't tried any of the harder difficulties yet. If you have marks on a number, the computer will make sure to have a 6+ mark round on its next turn to ensure that number will be closed and that you get points. The computer seems to think that the bullseye is as big as any other area on the dartboard. This is simply unrealistic for the second-easiest setting of the computer. The dartboard makes an awful "brick-going-through-glass" noise when you hit a number you're not supposed to. This can get very irritating, but is also encouraging so that you will really try to hit valid numbers to avoid hearing the noise. You can turn off the noise, but all other sound goes with it too. This is not helpful since the LCD is hard to see from the oche (no backlight). Sometimes a segment of the board gets pushed back by the throw, and then stuck under the wire. This causes other darts to score incorrectly. You have to learn to do a visual check every time before you take your turn, and just make sure no segments are stuck before you press the "next player" button to begin your turn. Otherwise you will hear that stupid glass-breaking sound and you wind up with 1 less throw (since you can't correct score). Otherwise it's an acceptable dartboard for goofing around with. It holds up to some of my hardest throws. (The board recommends 16g darts and comes with some pretty flimsy ones). The board has an input for a 5-volt DC adapter but there is no information on how to get one. In the meantime it takes 3 AA batteries. From the standpoint of having a cheap dartboard that has basic scoring capability, I am satisfied. From the standpoint of giving this item as a gift, I wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemies, as the computer is a professional cheater and will provide you with mere seconds of entertainment, topped with hours of frustration.
Pros: No double bull wire, Takes minor punishment, Large bed surface
Cons: Terse instruction booklet, No backlit LCD, No score correction, Cheating computer, How to buy AC adapter, Awful sound effects

Great for the price

I recommend this product.
This is a great little dartboard for the price. Few bounce outs, decent scoring, easy to install. The only negative is that it occasionally jams from the darts and keeps scoring, but not really a concern since its easy to correct.
Pros: Easy To Mount, Few Bounce Outs
