DGT 960 Digital Chess Clock - Red Black
The buttons were too hard to press. I wasn't able to hold the buttons down and quickly adjust the time on the clock. I also did not use the 960 function so this clock is being exchanged for a more functional one.
I carry this clock in a small bag with a plastic analysis set and board. When I go out to eat with a chess friend, we sit in a booth and play chess before and after eating, and even sometimes while we eat.
The Black body and Red buttons and trim color is nice and looks sharp. The size of the clock is also very convenient on a table and for transporting. The buttons have a nice "click" feeling and sound when pressed and the display is great. Resetting the clock for another game is also very easy and quick. Seeing that this clock is used for "skittle" type of games, we don't need more than one time control.
All in all this clock performs excellently for our use.
