I bought this map as a gift for my husband who was describing this exact product only days before I found it in the NG catalog. Despite the price, I purchased it along with an extra set of pins. The map was delivered much faster than I expected and the quality is gorgeous. The text is crisp and clear, many major cities are labeled within each country (which I didn't expect with a map of this size), and the color is perfect. The frame is light but sturdy. Though I haven't hung it up yet (it's a Christmas gift), I think it will look lovely with our decor.

The only cons are the price of the map and the pins. I also agree with a previous reviewer that I don't like the legend for the pin colors - it would have suited us better to use the black pins for something else other than our heritage. Now we either have to choose to not use the black pins, or to paste something over that section of the legend. Neither seem like good choices. I'd also like it if we could purchase separate color bags of pins rather than a mix bag (since the color we want to use most is the green and red).

Overall I'd recommend this product, but I hope NG offers some alternatives for the product in the future to improve it for future buyers!

Disappointing quality at that price. Frame is light weight plastic and the picture wire broke the first night it was hung, dropping the whole thing onto the floor. Fortunately, it didn't damage the frame or map. I expected more from a National Geographic product.

      Comments about National Geographic "My World" Personalized Map - Dark Frame:

      Gave my parents who travel all the time this gift for their anniversary and they loved it. I ordered an extra packet of the green pins and they were not nearly enough. Please allow customers to choose the number of pins they need OR sell the packets SEPARATELY. We had to order more packets of green pins and this is unsatisfactory for such a great gift.

      Frame made out of cheap plastic

          Comments about National Geographic "My World" Personalized Map - Dark Frame:

          The catalog described the map as being mounted on a foam core, with "wood frame." The frame feels like a cheap piece of plastic made to resemble wood. I'm incredibly unhappy with the quality of this product. It was purchased as a Christmas gift for my parents. I'm embarrassed to actually give it to them. I'm thinking of keeping the map and finding a different present for them.
