Robot is good for learning to block which helps you develop a feel for the paddle and the ball.

I have the same question. For a beginner, should I get an Ipong V300, ball catch net, and Joola Magic balls? I see a bundle online that is around $200.

Getting a robot may simply help groove bad habits and bad technique. If you are intending to get a robot, I'm assuming you already have a table. If you have a table it should be easy enough to entice someone who is better than you to come round and play on your table. The reason I say "better than you" is because one of the biggest issues when 2 beginners come to coaching for the first time and are put together, is that they can rarely keep the ball on the table long enough for them to have a meaningful FH to FH rally or BH to BH. Other things a robot won't help you to do is practise your serves.

Perhaps, seek out a local club, go down there and play socially, check out if they offer coaching and find out what people think of the quality of the coaching, try some out to get the basics of the correct technique, or if your techinque works for you and doesn't need changing, at least you'll get confirmation that that is the case. Then get your robot if you want to grove consistent repetation of shots or routines. More expensive ones will even allow you to program them to replicate, at least to a degree, the variety you may face in a game. Before you do that though, work out the cost of the robot you want, and then compare it to coaching hours and table hire time. Find the cost effective decision that works for you and meets your requirements.

Good luck

One thing robot is pretty good at (supposedly) is footwork drills.

Maybe take a class and ask your coach on his/her opinion on a robot. I asked our coach about a robot and he said that our kids are already too advanced for the iPong V300. Taking classes is beneficial to get the correct technique. We have done both group and private lessons.

I would say a robot is for practicing what you have already learned.

If you don't know how to hit a forehand drive and try to learn randomly by hitting balls on a robot, you might be going in the wrong direction.

If you learn what the strokes are, understand what you are trying to accomplish, and are able to identify your own mistakes, then a robot can be very beneficial.

Even if you are spending time with a practice partner, a coach, or in a club, a robot at home is going to make a huge difference in how much you can actually practice and improve.

The robot itself is not a bad tool. But any tool used in the wrong way is a bad tool.
