    Great Board!

    This is a great board! Works fantastic with the DGT Pi! Have yet to test it online, but I'm sure it will function well. Pricey but well worth it!


    good experience.

    Very nice board and pieces

    I purchased the DGT Smart Board in August. It arrived on time. I ordered the board with indices on the board and pieces. It came with a 9 ft 8 in USB to USB-C cable for connecting the board to a computer, a 12 inch cable to connect the board to a DGT clock and a DVD that contains Fritz 14, DGT driver software, a users manual and a 100 day premium membership on PlayChess.com. Others have commented on the quality of the board and pieces and I agree that the fit and finish are very good. What I would like to focus on here is getting the board to work on a non-Windows computer.

    On the DGT site it states that a Linux or Mac users can set up a Virtual Machine (VM) and run Windows in the Virtual Machine and install and run the DGT software and Fritz that way. This approach requires some things of the Mac or Linux user: a copy of Windows (Windows 10 is preferable), which is not free. A copy of a Virtual Machine software, for example VirtualBox from Oracle.com, which is free. And the know-how to set up and use a Virtual Machine. If you are not trained on the technology, this last bit can be quite a challenge. Find yourself a high school student interested in computers and you will probably be fine. I'm running a Linux computer and use Oracle VirtualBox for my VMs. I installed Windows 10 in a VM and installed the DGT DVD in that Windows system. It all worked fine. The Fritz software was able to use the board to input my moves.

    There were two points of possible confusion: RabbitConnect (the software that connects to the board) saw the USB port as the COM3 port, and always shows the board's battery as 0% charged. This last is because the board has no battery and depends on the computer it is connected to to provide power.

    I attempted to use Wine (an alternate way to run Windows programs on Mac or Linux) but with no success.

    In short, I am very pleased with the board and the service provided by ChessHouse. Highly recommended.

    Great service

    Nice board. I am happy now.. Great costumer service. I love play on the computer. Good quality board. I love pieces are big.

    Great Product

    This board is great.. I play Fritz 16 alot and really my eyes got tired of staring at the screen alot. I always wanted to get a good chess that is priced around $300. But since the smart board came out I thought why not combine a nice chess board and be able to connect to the computer. I been playing this for a couple of weeks and love it. If I had to say anything bad about it that you need to make changes to program that communicates between board and Fritz 16. Nothing really hard but I have it fined tune where I can set up a position on the board and it automatically registers in fritz and loads that positions and we can start playing. AWESOME product
