Yes, it’s a very politically incorrect name but Whitey Board is AWESOME!!!
I purchased two because the office where I’m currently working doesn’t give consultants their own white board (and meeting rooms are hard to find). Who uses white boards anymore? After seeing supposed consultants and business analysts struggle using a SmartBoard or any of those other intelligent white boards AND getting tired of deciphering things on a smaller screen, I needed something anyone could use and didn’t need to sit around a computer screen to look at it.
Bonus #1: INEXPENSIVE (24$ – I bought two 2×3)
It came in rolled up tubes and stuck onto the nearby wall in minutes.
Bonus #2: Super easy to put up anywhere
You can unstick and re-stick it anywhere.
Bonus #3: Roll it up and take it with you

Of course, there are some downsides:
1. The provided dry-erase pen is useless. Buy some better ones.
2. Because it doesn’t have edges, you may want to create your own border so that your “drawing” doesn’t bleed over to the edge. Lucky for me, the wall I posted it on is easy to clean.
If I had a larger office, I would look at some of their other cool offerings like the Ghost (clear) Whitey board and the large board (4ft x 6ft).
