Awesome Chess Computer!!

I own this chess computer.
It is a really good chess computer/clock. To customize it further than the stock settings, you do need to know
Linux/command line prompt, and you can easily update versions and get it to continue to announce moves even under one minute time controls.
For those who want a simple, non-technical computer, the Centaur Chess computer offers powerful play with ease of operation.
I would have that one if I didn't have the DGT Electronic board and DGT PI. who knows, I may still get a Centaur Chess computer.
But the DGT PI has outperformed my expectations, in play and features. I did have to put my tech hat on to get at all the "extras' under the hood.Which meant modifying files and things like that. I don't recommend for the un-initiated.
You can power it with the AC adapter it comes with, or with a power bank. Attach a speak to hear it call out the moves.
It can be adjusted to update, announce down to the second, retrieve saved games, email you your games, do Ethernet connections,
it can do wifi with a wifi dongle, you can set customized time controls, and other things. Granted you do need to know some programming to get at some of this extra stuff. I even install endgame tables on it.

Even so, I do recommend this machine, especially if you like to tinker.
For most people, the stock settings will suffice.

I really I can play with a tournament size board and pieces, when paired with a DGT electronic board!! THAT was one of the biggest selling points for me.

Excellent Chess Engine

There is a learning curve with the DGT Pi. I am certain once I learn how to navigate the different menus, this chess engine will be better than playing chess on an ipad or laptop. At the moment, I am still learning how to use it. The DGT with the Royal chess pieces are great looking and feel classy. The DGT e-board with the DGT Pi and Royal Chess pieces were less than $1,000, which was an excellent price. I recommend this product for those who enjoy playing chess.

WHY BUY A COMPUTER CHESS CLOCK?

THE ANSWER HERE IS EASY! THESE DGT Pi CHESS CLOCKS ARE LOADED WITH NUMEROUS, STRONG CHESS ENGINES; MANY ENGINES CAN BE SET TO LOWER LEVELS TO EVEN OUT THE PLAYING FIELD! I HAVE HAD TROUBLE CONNECTING LAPTOP PROGRAMS TO SEVERAL E-BOARDS; THE PROBLEM WAS ALWAYS THE SAME - EVENTUALLY DURING A GAME, THE LAPTOP SCREEN WOULD MALFUNCTION. THESE CLOCKS ELIMINATE THAT PROBLEM. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF USEFUL FUNCTIONS; YOU CAN SET AT LEAST 20 DIFFERENT TIME CONTROLS, FROM LONG GAMES WITH "FISCHER" INCREMENTS, BLITZ GAMES, OR G15, 30, 60, OR 90, ETC; THE POSSIBILITIES ARE SUITABLE FOR ANY TIME CONTROL. YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM A VARIETY OF OPENING BOOKS THAT DESCRIBE THE STYLE OF PLAY, FROM OPEN GAMES TO SEMI-OPEN GAMES, TO CLOSED GAMES AND ANYTHING IN BETWEEN. THIS FEATURE IS GREAT FOR PRACTICING SPECIFIC OPENINGS, WHICH IS MY PRIMARY USE. AND IT HAS A DOUBLE USE AS A REGULAR TOURNAMENT CLOCK THAT IS EASY TO SET FOR TIME FUNCTIONS. IF YOU WANT AN ALL PURPOSE CLOCK, LOOK NO FURTHER - THIS IS YOUR ANSWER. JUST CONNECT THE CABLES AND USE IT ANY WAY YOU WANT WITH AN E-BOARD, WITH OR WITHOUT BLUETOOTH. A GREAT VALUE FOR THE PRICE, WITH A CHESS HOUSE, USA-BASED STAFF THAT PROVIDES AN ANSWER FOR ANY QUESTION YOU HAVE. NO RESERVATIONS ON THIS ONE. I BOUGHT TWO! LEN

Dgt Pi not good for blitz

Very interesting way to play. Extremely easy to change configurations using extra queens. But,
Lag was disappointing esp during blitz. Voice announcement never works for faster time controls.(starts with voice then automatically stops later )..and in almost all cases computer lost on time, esp in 5-5 or 3-2 which is classical blitz controls...I had tried stockfish higher levels ...but even with good position it always lost on time...but for classical.time controls ..it's great..another negative is the update option
Updating dgt pi is very complex and I am surprised ,on that prize why can't they give wifi with auto update? Given the cost factor, there are lot of scope for improvement.

A new friend

I first learned to play chess in 1972 at age 10. I am now starting to “learn” to play chess. The Pi and DGT board allow me to have a real game at anytime on a real board. While I am yet to win even a single game . I am studying and can see small improvements. I will recommend this system . From a beginners standpoint it is a lot of fun.
