The materials are better quality than expected. Overall I am satisfied with my order. You have exceeded expectations. I look forward to doing more business with you as I have high hopes for the launch of our school's chess club.

Reviewer: Patrick Murray from Dublin, VA United States  
I am very happy with my citrine. It is very nice and the play is excellent. I highly recommend this to anyone trying to work on their game. Very stylish all the way around.

Easy to use April 21, 2011
Reviewer: Mike from Rough & Ready,  
[...] I thought their prices were excellent too.The Citrine is easy to use.  The other review on this website is a good introduction to it's features.  Once you have fiddled with it for a while it is very easy.   It seems strong enough to challenge most players and is reasonably fast when computing it's moves.  I bought the Citrine because it has the largest board size I could find.  It is OK, but

PC hookup video December 11, 2009
Reviewer: twoman51 from Columbia Statio  
You should make a video on how to hookup the citrine to a  PC.{ like you said you would do in a future video}. I've searched all over the net and can't find anything that is helpful.As have apparently many others besides myself.

Great Value for the price! December 11, 2007
Reviewer: Ted Summers from Marietta, GA United States  
I can tell you this, The Chess House has the best price that I have seen for this system. The 2330 USCF rating that Novag Advertises for this model, well that is over stating it by quite a bit. It is more like 2140 USCF Expert. What really makes the Novag Citrine so special is that you can also connect the Citrine to your PC using the included serial cable. You can use this feature to record or print the moves of your games or more importantly... You can use your Novag Citrine in a similar fashion to the popular DGT Boards. Which means you can play against some of your computer chess engines such as Shredder, Hiarcs, Rybka, and other popular chess engines using the "Free" Arena Chess GUI. The current version that works with the Citrine is Arena 1.99 Beta 4. See Link:

There is even a Linux driver available so that you can use your Novag Citrine in the linux operating system. See link:
