Customer Reviews

Misalignment is NO BIG DEALI had read the reviews of this Globe and other Replogle Models prior to purchase. One thing that concerned me was the reports of misalignment's of Latitude and Longitude lines. Of course, this is the first thing I looked at upon arrival. Indeed there are some misaligned sections.Otherwise, this Globe is fabulous. So I had to decide if this misalignment was really an issue with a $100 Globe. My conclusion IT IS NOT SIGNIFICANT.When I consider the methods of manufacturing this model, I am sure there is some acceptable tolerance for misalignment's. The pieces have to be printed flat and then cut and conformed to the spherical shape. It would be very hard to perfectly align every line, every time.See pictures below.The cuts begin above Latitude 75 and sometimes are misaligned by the time they get to the Equator. At the 30 Degree meridian they are off by 5/32 (the worst I see). Opposite that, at the 150 Degree meridian, they are off by 1/16 (=2/32). There is also some latitude misalignment as seen in the SENEGAL picture below, where you also see some text clipping on the word Selibaby .I am sure there is some variance on individual globes, and maybe you could get a perfect one for $1000 plus, but for me, this one is fine. 5Was Quality Control on break?Before ordering this globe, I'd read a review or two citing bad construction but thought that must have been an anomaly (it won't happen to me!). However, the globe I received was not even joined properly at the equator -- the thin blue tape placed over the seam where the two cardboard hemispheres were meant to mate could not cover the big 1/4" gap that existed along a large portion of the equator. I couldn't believe that this globe passed quality control at the factory. It's too bad because there are some nice features to this model. I would've kept it were it not for the inexcusable poor assembly of the cardboard hemispheres. 1I don't like the metal ring that circles the globeNow that I have this one, I don't like the metal ring that circles the globe, and the printing is small. (but I do need magnified glasses to read)... However the quality is fantastic and the raised relief is great. This is the same globe my Mom (RIP) had. I do recommend this... 4Good from afar - far from goodCheap and slapped together. Still a globe, looks nice from 5 feet away, good enough to teach kids with - but ugly, and poorly made. Not worth the price. Stickers on crooked, gaps, creases - stand itself is chincy feeling. 2outstanding for learning & re-learning geographyThis globe is sturdy and its rotation features work very well. It rotates in all directions (on two axes), so that you can have any part of the world on the top for closer scrutiny. Keep a string handy to stretch across it to resolve family disputes about the shortest route from A to B (eg, San Francisco to Bali or Delhi or Abu Dhabi). It has just a bit of relief to indicate where mountains are, reinforced by topo colors to indicate what is high and what is low, with undersea mountains and sea depth shown too. Though we have had ours for >15 years, we still ponder it regularly. This one was bought for our grandchildren to have at home. Packaging for shipping was excellent. 5Relief features are not as nice as on the old "Seafarer" model, which "Atlantis" apparently replaces.I got this pne to replace an old, out-of-date Replogle Seafarer model (very similar). This new one is much more expensive (inflation, I suppose), but not as nice. The relief doesn't stand out as well, l especially in the seafloor. It was a disappointment. By the way, my old one had a wooden floor pedestal, and I was able to transfer the new one to it (but I had to include the new globe's small "base cone", with a short length of PVC pipe hidden underneath. it to accommodate the longer mounting-bolt length). 3Really a great aid to understanding our worldWe keep this globe right beside the dining table on the sideboard because it provides instant information on places being discussed, or mentioned in the news. This globe is nicely finished and the type is very readable, and mountains are indicated through extrusions. It's very useful that it has two axes of rotation so that countries in the far north and far south can be better scrutinized. Sure, one can pull out an atlas or Google maps, but a globe gives an understanding that two dimensional maps do not.But the price (now $96 by this vendor) has risen faster than inflation. I paid $66 including S&H in 2012, and felt that even that price was pretty steep.However. we have often consulted the globe during conversations at table about international events and military actions, so all in all, it has been a very worthwhile purchase. 5top notch for the priceI throughly enjoy the raised relief and the depiction of geographic and geological features. The country borders are there too, but secondary. It is a nice way to see the geography of the world. Also pleasant is the fact that it can rotate so the south pole can be on top, or halfway. This allows a fuller look at the globe. 5re: Atlantis GlobeWhen it comes to globes, I really don't know much about them, but as a lover of maps of all kinds, the fact that this globe has topological information, that won me over. I have been watching "How the Earth Was Made" on television and they had a segment on underwater mountain ranges. On this globe, you can see both the mountain ranges on terre firma and under the oceans. It is a beautiful globe, not cheaply made as I have seen on other globes. I guess the only thing that I don't really like about this map is trying to find particular countries or cities...they are there, just in small print. But, as I said, I have plenty of maps with that info on them, but this globe, it is one of a kind. Both sides of my family have oohed and ahhed over it. My suggestion, if you want countries and cities, get a map, but to see the world globe in a "3-D" image, this is awesome. 5GlobeI was concerned, just ordering this globe online, that it would not be large enough to show the changes in landscape significantly. It was a gift for a daughter who climbs mountains and runs marathons in the desert and has plans to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro on her next adventure. I wanted her to be able to see and share the places and terrain she explores. As it turns out, her only issue with the globe is where to put it in her small apt. It shows enough topography, despite it's limited size, to satisfy her desires to share and see the sites of her adventures. 5
