With the help of two Amazon gift cards for Christmas, I finally purchased a white board. While I do have some wall space in my new home office, I prefer mobile white boards so that I can move them around, and they often have a double-sided white board (some have a white board on one side and a bulletin board on the other) so you get a two-for-one deal.
I placed my order on Sunday, January 3, and it arrived safely on Friday, January 8. My husband and I assembled it yesterday. I took a quick picture and posted it to Facebook, and had a few comments and IMs asking about it. So instead of replying to each person, I figured I’d write a blog post, because what genealogist doesn’t love a good white board?
The model I purchased is Luxor L340. It’s a double-sided magnetic white board that’s 4′ wide by 3′ high (the assembled height is just over 5′), with wheels (two locking) for easy mobility. I paid $245.99 (the current price is $249.99), which is a bargain since mobile white boards of this size can run in the $500-600 range.
