The board looks great and is very smooth to write on. Erasing the board is also a pleasure! I am very disappointed that the so called "magnetic" board does not actually hold magnets. I bought a whiteboard eraser made by Quartet and the magnet would not even remotely catch or be attracted to the board. It seems as though the glass is too thick or the metal sheet at the back is so thin that none of the magnets I've tried, hold up. I am truly disappointed because this was a feature I was looking forward to having and I was willing to pay a steep price for having this board over regular cheap white boards. I will get in touch with amazon, because I don't feel like this product has been adequately described or at least it seems to mislead people.
