This is definitely a fun, unique gift for someone, especially a puzzler or map aficionado. This is probably a mid-level puzzle if you order this for a suburb or city residence, but if you order for a rural location the puzzle becomes an 8-12 hour puzzle at high-difficulty. It was definitely fun, but very time-consuming. For us, during the holidays, that was perfect! Ha!

Pros: Fun, good quality, interesting, family oriented, playful, great gift.

Cons: Cannot choose image yourself, off-gassing is intense at first, manufacturing process has black dust that sheds when using puzzle at first but it is easily remedied with a little cleaning or prep for the surface, supplied reference image print-out is a bit low-quality.

Overall I'd recommend this to suburban or city images. Rural images could vary widely so that could be an issue for some. Our older relatives were unable to participate because of the complexity.

The web page gives an impression of providing some proximity to the address/neighborhood. The satellite photo we received was so distant that we couldn't even distinguish the location of our house. I work away from my family for the majority of the year, and this was supposed to be something special to let them know I was thinking of them. They appreciated the thought, but the product, especially for the price, was extremely disappointing. Not sure what goes into vetting the quality of the photo/representation, but we're not impressed. The packaging is lovely and wood pieces are nice, however; too bad we have no desire to display the finished product. Good idea for a product, but not a sure thing on the deliverable.

Scale far too small. Visually unappealing. Grey.

      Incredibly disappointing. The scale translates to a customized city puzzle that is 22 blocks by 18 blocks. An birds eye view of an an area that large just looks like blocks and blocks of grey where you can barely make out a house roof. We thought we would be able to identify neighbor housetops and our own... that's impossible.

              Unfortunately, the satellite picture is too repetitious. It will be close to impossible to complete this puzzle. The quality is excellent though. It would have been extremely beneficial to have an option to view prior to purchasing especially given the cost.

                  Comments about UncommonGoods Custom Satellite Map Puzzle:

                  I was disappointed in the view. It is so high that the only way I could determine the address requested was that it was located next to a football field. Houses/buildings were not visible. This was a going away gift, to be a memory of the time spent at this location, but it was disappointing that the view did not really show the requested area visibly. For the price, expected better.

                    This was a gift for my parents. They do like it and say the quality is impressive. However they received a street map puzzle, rather than a satellite image puzzle. So it's not quite what I was intending, but they still enjoyed receiving the gift.
