Great Product!

I've received the King Performance M830. It came within the promised time and in good working order. I've also ordered the Chess Volt add-on. I used the set to play out strategy from a book (as a regular chessboard) and turn on the set to play at whatever level I can successfully win (LOL). When I learn how to play better chess, I will be happy to advance the levels. Thank you for the hours of fun (and avoiding arguing with the wife)! Ira G

Now that I've had this product for a while, I understand it much better.

When I was scrolling through the levels, I originally thought that easy 0 was the easiest. It turns out there is another category called fun level with mistakes which goes from 0 thru 5. I put it at fun 0 and it was like two people who knew the rules of chess but none of the concepts or strategies. I just tried a game at fun 1 and it's more challenging but not way above me.

In short, I think this is a great product. The interface doesn't take long to understand and is easy to use. I highly recommend without any concerns at all.

The greatest chess site on the planet

I recently purchased the millennium chess king and all of the extras that are sold separately and all I can say is this company is fantastic, I called and asked a few questions from Jason and he was nothing less than exceptional and all I can say is if you’re interested in chess this is the only place you need to visit or Buy from since their prices are very reasonable and the customer service at this point seems like exceptional. I will be calling back for some support just because I’m 61 and working some of the peripheral hardware is not straightforward but still very easy to get around If you are computer savvy. God bless you guys and thanks for giving chess a new life in the current world we live in — Tom

Touch pads are a little iffy, but otherwise fantastic

The pieces don't have magnets / aren't identified by the computer, so you need to press on them in the from/to squares to get the move registered. The system isn't perfect, so sometimes the moves don't register correctly, or the computer thinks a piece is in a different spot than you moved to. You can undo and fix, so it's not terrible, but it can be a little annoying.
Other than that, it's a lot of fun to play with.

Fantastic. I really enjoy playing on this.

My only gripe would be that it doesn't include the expert manual. You have to get it on line. Otherwise this looks good. Plays great. The unboxing experience was pleasant. Very glad I got this.
