I'm really enjoying this board, it's beautiful and works pretty well with my applications and online services.

Terry Williams
Piece Of Art

I purchased this board as an upgrade from my simulated wood plastic board. Although the plastic board is functional, my wood board is lovely, like a piece of art. The wood grain is flawless and the chess pieces move effortlessly over the wood finish. Also a special thanks to Paul from Chess House, who helped me obtain a new board when the first one arrived not functioning properly. I am very satisfied with the purchase of this board.

Brilliant product shipped with perfect service across the globe!

Chess House provided the most amazing, efficient service of any company I have used in a very long time. I live in Melbourne, Australia, which is on the other side of the globe form Chess House, and although they said it would take at least ten days to arrive, I actually had the digital board and DGT Pi Computer in my hands within 7 days of payment! Furthermore, the excellent tracking meant I knew when and where the packages would arrive.
With respect to to the products, I had my eye on the DGT Electronic Chessboard USB for some time now and when it arrived, I was not disappointed. As well as being highly functional and a super smart adjunct to chess playing and training, the board is a beautiful thing to look at. It took very little time to install the provided software and link to my PC and I had it working in no time at all. The board's size makes it perfect for training for over the board tournaments and makes analysis and learning a pure pleasure. I can't begin to tell you how much I am enjoying this. A tip for users of the DGT Pi Computer as well. I found the manual that came with the Computer not so clear in its layout, and I am a complete newbie to using these products so I had never seen them in real life before, but although all of the set up information is in the manual, I didn't find it very clear. To save time, make sure you use the 3 meter USB cord that comes with the board to connect your digital board to the Computer. The USB ports on the computer are hidden in the little section on the bottom left side of the computer. This is an incredible tool to use with the digital board, and I highly recommend buying both. I am ecstatic about this purchase and the service provided - worth every cent! Thank you so much Chess House - you will be my first point of call in the future.

Worth the price

I have used the board with the DGT Pi computer and the board is working flawlessly. The colors and textures are perfect. The sensitivity and position scanning allowed by the board and the Pi works flawlessly. I have minor issues with the Pi and the pieces that I purchased to go with the board, but no issues with the board itself. I give the board 5 stars out of 5.
