Forget the Joola and other mid-size tables. This one is the correct scaled size to regulation and beats them all.

Wow, what a difference. I bought the Joola model mid-size ping pong table first and it's no comparison. Firstly, this is the only table that truly matches the correct ratio of a full-size regulation table. The finished size of the table is 72x x 40 vs other tables like the Joola that are 72x36. I think they wanted to make each half a square, so you can utilize the tables are multi-purpose tables. But if you are into ping pong and just don't have the room for a full-size table, you'll at least want to keep to scaling the regulation size.
But that's not all that's nice about this table. The legs are square and sturdy, much sturdier than the thin aluminum ones that come on the thinner top tables. The frame is also beefier. The first table I ordered from a competitor, had all the frame screws falling out, since the particle board top is only a 1/2" thick. I believe this one is 5/8 and that makes all the difference.
Ok, what's the bad part? The net posts are pretty flimsy. Very thin metal that bend and flex pretty bad. Why they threw a cheap net and posts on such a nice table is beyond me. The corner guards are also flimsy and were broken off on my table, even though it was brand new and had protective guards in the box.
Hope this helps others make the decision. I would highly recommend the table and would buy it again, despite the cons mentioned above.
