Killerspin’s new table series, UnPlugNPlay provides the latest in ping pong table innovation, while still having the necessary components which lead to a high-quality game of ping pong. For this piece, we will provide the complete Killerspin unPlugNPlay 415 Mega review, which is a slight upgrade to the standard UnPlugNPlay 415 – due to the increased tabletop thickness.
The only real upgrade which this table has on the UnPlugNPlay 415, is the fact that the tabletop is thicker – everything else in the table is very similar, if not – the same.
Please note this table has 2 color options: DeepBlu, which is a navy blue with black lines, and Deep Chocolate, which is a neat black color – this option is also slightly more expensive. Both tables have black legs.

Who is it for?
Who is it not for?
An upgrade from the UnPlugNPlay 415, due to increased table top thickness. Stylish, affordable table which will fit in with the decor in any room.
This table has a 16mm thick top, which may not provide the best bounce - more advanced players may want a thicker top.
For the review, we’ll focus on the main components of any table, and how this table rates in functionality, storage, transport, and performance. These are the key features we will talk about:
- Table top

An 18mm thick tabletop provides good bounce for recreational play and is the regulation size for a high-end home table. This table thickness should lead to some high-quality games at home. However, if you’re playing more advanced ping pong, you may want to consider a tabletop thickness of 25mm – the UnPlugNPlay Max offers this thickness.
The tabletop is protected by a scuff-resistant UV finish which protects the surface from ball marks and chipping.
If you’re looking to go all the way with tabletop thickness, check out the 25mm Killerspin UnPlugNPlay 415 Max, or the Butterfly Centrefold 25.
One slight defect of the UnPlugNPlay 415 Mega is that you will have to assemble the table yourself. This process is made easier by using the BILT application, which gives a step-by-step guide to building your table.
This can be made into an exciting activity with the family, as you’re building a table which is going to provide years of fun.
The folding design makes it easy to store the table when not in use. Both halves of the table fold into one another and can fit into a tight space. The lighter weight of the tabletop means one person is capable of packing the table away.
Locking caster wheels on each half of the table ensures the table is secure in the storage position.
The UnPlugNPlay 415 Mega has full playback functionality and is achieved by folding up one half of the table into the storage position and leaving the one half in the normal play position.
This allows players to practice long hours when there isn’t a friendly rival up for a game.
Each half of the table has 4 locking caster wheels, making transport safe and comfortable. These wheels each have a lock, meaning the UnPlugNPlay 415 Mega is secure and stable in storage or during a match.
Having a solid wheel system is vital to the free-flowing, easy mobility of your table.
4 built-in adjustable height levelers ensure that the games are played on a perfectly level surface at all times.
Sometimes, the table may not be set up on a perfectly flat surface, which will lead to an uneven and inconsistent bounce. Having height levelers helps adjust in these environments.
Killerspin has included their premium screw-on net and post system, which means you won’t need to go looking for a new net anytime soon.
This screw-on net provides the ultimate stability and rigidity, and you’ll seldom need to tighten the net during games.
Each side of the tabletop can store up to 8 balls, making games go smooth as ever.
On the side of the tabletop, where the player stands, there is a built-in paddle holder for each opposite side. These holders can store up to 2 paddles each.
Essentially, one half is for ping pong balls, and the other is for paddles.
Killerspin is becoming one of the fastest-growing brands in table tennis. They are one of the newer brands, but the quality and innovation in their products is undeniable.
We’ve listed some of the major pros and cons for the Killerspin UnPlugNPlay 415 Mega:
Overall, the PlugNPlay 415 Mega is a seriously advanced home table. A slightly thicker tabletop provides players with greater bounce, and the stylish look of either the DeepBlu or Deep Chocolate will fit into any kind of home décor. This model is slightly more expensive than the standard PlugNPlay 415, but you’re paying for the more advanced bounce.
