Both reliable and durable in its strong metal case, the electronics in this clock offer the ultimate in accuracy and programability. This clock is suitable for slow and fast players alike. It will handle long, multiple time controls as well as any fast blitz, or "lightning" setting. As is the problem with some other digital chess clocks, there is no question when it comes to pressing the buttons on the clock. They are well designed and clearly indicate when you have pressed them, even with the lightest touch. Four anti-slide rubbers keep the clock in place and its low profile prevents it from tipping. Most importantly, the LCD display is large and clear. It also features optional lights and sound. Though some people say it is difficult to program, others that have spent an extra few minutes in the manual say it is easy and allows the most flexibility.
