My mistake but....

Current DGT USB eboards ship with USB-C port. This board (presumably from inventory stockpile of non-current boards), came with USB mini port (USB Mini standard was abandoned across 90% of electronics market two or three years ago in favor of USB micro, then USB C).

Though on review, I do see that the offering mentions USB Mini, I have to admit that the possibility that connectivity would arrive using an essentially abandoned USB standard never occurred to me. My board works correctly with Chess.com (via the DGT Live Chess library), only about 5% of the time and I can't help wondering if USB-C (and it's firmware, and because it also provides power), would provide a better experience. Three stars due to no discount from current "USB-C" prices

Rosewood makes chess more beautiful

One cannot express the utter joy and satisfaction of playing a relaxed game of chess over a DGT Rosewood electronic chessboard. What digital cameras and image compression algorithms cannot capture and preserve is the softened edges between the light wood panels and the deep maroon squares. This subtle yet welcomed effect is what provides true eye relief either from staring at 2-D chess graphics for too long or from playing on most standard chess boards. Paired with a beautiful wooden, weighted chess set, the over-all experience is amplified even further, making the gameplay even more elegant and gratifying.

Very satisfied

It took a learning curve to get it working with my laptop. But once past that it works great.

e-board and DGT3000 pi clock

The board looks impressive. The model I recieved is diffrent from the one in the photo on the box, no led power light and no on/off switch. I have more pages of various languages in the owners manuals than I have in actual information on the product I purchased. As of yet the board fails to recognize piece movement properly, there is a note in the manual that the proximity of metal can effect the sensors I will have to find more time to work with the DGT3000 before I can make a judgement. Same problems with the DGT3000 pi in regards to the manual. The software that came with the board is dense, using it requires prior knowledge or above average ingenuity. The Chess House was quick with the delivery and responsive to my questions I would buy from them again, the chess tables look very nice.

Always wanted one of these

Worth every discounted penny! I use a Mac, but the DGT board works perfectly using VMware fusion. I can play on the internet with a real board. But best of all is connecting it to my DGT 3000 and raspberry pi running pico chess. It turns into a full auto sensory chess computer, with multiple engines and completely customizable strength and playing style. I searched for the best price for this board for a long time before buying. Chesshouse was the least expensive, and you have the confidence that your purchase is backed and not hoping for the best from a unsupported online store in a different continent or some dodgy eBay seller. Well worth the wait and cost. Glad I got it from chesshouse.
