    I bought this board primarily to synchronize multiple cameras for live-event shoots. It does its job -- and yes, clients love it and it makes me look more "professional," too.

    I am using Expo "Click" low-odor dry erase markers, and they erase cleanly and easily with a dry cloth. I specifically use the "click" markers because they have no caps to lose if I'm concentrating on my shoot and don't have time to think about details like that.

    One other thing: the color bars are *wonderful* for color-correction in post. Even when shooting with one camera, light often changes over the course of an hour or two, especially outdoors. I use the back of this slate for white balance (it's slightly grey, but still plenty neutral; It's translucent so I use nothing but black markers in order to preserve color neutrality) and check colors against those bars in post with my color-tuned display monitor. A huge time-saver!

    I thought about getting the smaller one, but since I typically carry mics and other accessories in a messenger bag, and this one fits, why not have a nice, big one for on-site convenience -- and, of course, client-pleasing eyewash.

    I used this in Documentary and Short Film.

    It is a good piece it is just constructed cheaply. I intentionally looked at reviews and purchased one that I thought was a little sturdier to avoid this.

    The clapper is made out of particle board and it began to crack as soon as I started using it. It hasn't broken apart yet but it is only a matter of time before the plastic slate will detach from the clapper.

    Also the screws that keep the hinge working loosen themselves due to the clapper action.

    Honestly I just expected it to work, after 2 shoots it is about to fall apart.

      Nothing too fancy here, but a solid, simple slate. It has a nice clack, and the boxes for writing shot info are big and clear. This slate is lightweight and easy to pack.

          It's well built and the color bars will help post if you don't get to shoot a chip chart.

              I couldn't have asked for anything better. It works just like it should. I had read in other reviews that the nuts on the clapper would come off, but I found that "complaint" to be helpful. When I received it, I checked the nuts, and they were indeed loose. A little bit of LocTite took care of that, and I have had no problems with it. It is ruggedly built, and of excellent quality.

                Use to sync audio and video from multiple sources on location shoots. Great price and well-made. Screws are easy to tighten if that becomes an issue (hasn't for me yet). Provides a very clear clap and the colored bars are a nice touch too. Using the click markers and haven't had any problem with erasing. This clapper is awesome and is so much more professional than clapping hands in front of the camera. The slate has also saved me a lot of time in editing, just look at it to see what take I've loaded. No more constant previews! Love it!

                      I work my tools very very hard.
                      this is good. not super high quality. the clapper sticks have a very small hint of cheaply made. but it gets the job for at least the next year or 2. (until I destroy it, from over working it)
                      the best part? B&H is super reliable, got it in my hands in a timely manner.. (as usual.)

                        I use the product for student films, and my own personal projects. I recently starting shooting using a sound mixer and needed a clapboard. It works fine, the large area makes writing on it easy.

                          Comments about Pearstone Acrylic Dry Erase Clapboard with Color Sticks (9.75x11"):

                          I am in a film class and needed a clapboard to assist in the editing process. It provides a clear platform to write all pertinent information. After purchasing it online it arrived only a few days later which I was ecstatic about.

                                A nut fell off the first day... but once I replaced that, it has been working fine since. Very important for syncing audio in post.

                                One of the screws came off during the first day I used this slate. Of course the PA lost in somewhere along the line which resulted a trip to the local hardware store to buy a replacement. I haven't had any problems since and am fairly happy with this slate.

                                    I plan on using this for syncing multiple cameras for editing purposes. I was concerned about the quality because of the inexpensive price. WELL, don't worry I am satisfied and you will be too.

                                      Used for a class project. After slating/ roughly 40 takes, the clapping mechanism (wood w/ screws) did, as a previous review mentioned, unscrew. It didnt break. the screws, because of a tight tolerance between the length of bolt and width of wood, the action of raising and lowering the sticks, the bolts unscrewed, and fell out. THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN, and could be a Pain if not prepared for this. A trip to the hardware store and you can get longer bolts for this slate. For [$], and the price of 3 bolts and nuts, i think its worth it. Outside of it coming apart, its components are quality: Engraved/recessed labels, embed magnets in the sticks, dry erasable and both color & bw readings.
