I am looking to buy a cheap robot that is simple and can serve multiple topspin.

Can anyone recommend a decent one (within $100)? Thanks.

Hi kindof99 
Under 100$ you can make couple of return boards, or mb can buy used robot from someone.
I found really good robot with replenishing cycle of balls costs minimum 400$
It is cheapest one.
IMHO: All others - are not so good because replenishing cycle is crucial.

Thanks. I don’t need replenishing right now. 
I am looking at those about $100 Ipong robots, and might just go with one of them.

IMHO that Ipong robot - almost waste of money.
But when not enough money - it's better than nothing.
It's better than RB in case when you want to train service return, but all other stuff is worse.
So I personally having 100$ would choose 200-300 balls and a return board with cheap chinese rubber or 2 boards (1 with rubber) with 100 balls.

Ipong is useless unless you have someone to feed it balls.
30 topsin balls in a row is too few.
It can create realistic backspin balls for you to learn looping or flicks,
but it shoots them too frequently to make it realistic/useful.
Right hand: Stiga Allround NCT (74g) /Rasant Grip max/Talon OX red (total 135g)
Left hand: Stiga Allround WRB (71g)/Vega Europe max/Innova Ultra Light max (total 153g)

It will take too long for the mail to arrive from china at this time of the year.

IMHO it worth paying 400$ and wait for 1 month for really good robot for players to improve at least till 2200 USATT than to waste 100$ dollars and move it to trash like in 3 weeks.
