Looks good; works great.

The board is gorgeous and was easy to setup, even with my Mac. Didn't need to install anything fancy or complicated, just LiveChess. Connected via Bluetooth with no problems. Really happy with it.

Customer service was also top notch. I will be making all future chess-related purchases through this company.

Chess House is a reliable vendor

Vendor shipped the DGT Bluetooth chess board the next day. Price for the item was better than competitive. Item arrived well packaged. Vendor does a follow-up by e-mail to assure you are satisfied with your order. Highly recommend your next chess purchase from these guys (they been doing this for a long time).
