First of all, I am extremely happy with the service from Chess House. This is the 3rd electronic chess set i've purchased from them Millenium Exclusive in 2018, DGT Centaur a couple of years later and now DGT Pegasus to play online on a physical board. Chess House has been exceptional every time.
The Pegasus is beautiful chess set. It's much smaller than the Centaur and the Millenium Exclusive but it fits perfectly on my desk, there are no wires, and it's big enough for me to concentrate on the game and not think about "how small these pieces are". 5 stars on aesthetics
The software at this time is quite frustrating. At first, i couldnt promote a pawn.. Then two pieces would not get recognized no matter what i did. I restarted it and it magically worked until i started playing on chess.com... I had to bail out and finish the game on my phone since the board got confused again.
From DGT's website i found out that it first "had to be calibrated". I did not find this instruction anywhere in the box. I followed the procedure, removed the pieces, turned it on and held the button for 15 seconds.. Had to do that 3 times for the board to work correctly.
Since then i've played 5 games on successfully. When it's working, it's exactly what i wanted. Play chess against humans on a physical board. The initial onboarding experience and the DGT app (when playing on lichess) is just terrible. No rating filters, if you happen to leave the playing screen there is no way to get back to it.. DGT app does not offer an offline engine or position setup..
To summarize, great idea and great board but the software needs ALOT of work. I will keep the chess set but i really hope DGT provides software updates to fix these detection issues and adds more features to their DGT app
