This company is amazing! We got my grandpa the best electric board for playing a human-like personality. He loves it and it’s easy for him to use. When I called to get help with the Father’s Day discount, they helped me in every way possible right away. Very reliable and a great product. Totally worth it!
Finally I have a sparring partner for Chess 960!
I decided to buy the King Performance because it has the Chess 960 option. I've played multiple games with the 960 option and it's nice to see the machine forced to abandon the book and think on the first move just like I have to do. I've played regular games with the King Performance as well, it seems to be a little sharper that the Lasker Exclusive. I also like the additional specialized opening books that you can select to play against. I also bought the ChessVolt battery pack and it allows me to play a lot of games between charges!
Only reason I give King Performance 4 stars is when it's paired with Chess Link. The interface isn't complete. If I stop playing a game I can't resume play so I limit Chess Link to 30 minute games. The King Performance display is not in sync with the display when I use Chess Link with HIARCS Chess Explorer on my Mac. Outside of that this is a fun set to keep my mind exercised!
Great service, great game
Thanks for working with us on shipping, and for helping us get the item we really wanted. This is wonderful for ease of play and something close to the experience of playing face to face with a quality set. We’re thrilled with it.
Gift for Son
I ordered this chess set for my son. He has found it a bit complicated and said that the computer is trying to make illegal chess moves. The book that comes with it does not explain the different games very well and needs to be written in plain english but when he sticks with the basic, normal chess game, he is very happy with it.
I have not used a chess computer since my Fidelity days. This one is light years better! At age 84 I am in awe.
