Desktop To-Do Board
I swear I didn't know that my family was going to love this product or use it as much as we are. I bought it to leave a to do list for my cleaning lady. As it turns out, my husband and I are know leaving short love letters. What I didn't know, he was taking pictures of them on his iPhone for keepsake...no joke, how romantic, right! If I could tell the manufacture to change the marker to a finer point and make the board waterproof, that would be awesome!!! The downside is the marker erases, but not completely and it leaves small specks of black dust from erasing. I did try to wash it...big mistake as water made the wood expand:( Which I should have known would happen.

Functions well, works great
I have a variety of dry erase boards- stainless, plain white, and this bamboo one (real bamboo, by the way!).
I have found that having multiple dry erase boards is the best way for me to keep organized. I use a large one for "overall planning", smaller ones for particular projects and I use this desktop one for my daily To Do.
The way this board props itself up makes it excellent for daily use on your desktop, as it's easy to read while it lays flat.
The pen with the eraser end is AWESOME- I actually use the little eraser for all my boards, since I can erase just words with it. I also like the thick, sort of calligraphy-way the pen writes. The ink is darker and thicker than other dry erase pens. A bit fragrant, though.
I also appreciate the bamboo- dry erase can look very 'utilitarian' or 'school-like,' but the bamboo does a great job of making it look like a part of your home.
It erases well enough. Better than white boards but not as well as stainless.
The main drawback is that the piece that turns it into a propped-up board just slides into place and there's really nothing holding it there. So sometimes when I grab it quickly, the piece might fall out. Not a big deal to me, as I would still buy another one of these.

Handy little pad
My 5 year old daughter has loved drawing on this, we had a great time making our house and even practicing words/letter forms together.
I bought it for work to-do lists, so I may have to pick up another for home.
Comfortable, easy to use, erases well and looks great.

Love this idea!
I bought this for a Christmas present for my brother. As soon as I heard about it, I had to buy it for him. Great idea to have a dry erase board with style! I wish that this one was magnetic, but there are larger ones available that are magnetic.
