Board Did not Recognize the Chess Pieces

Even after several days of trouble shooting and help from Chesshouse the board does not recognize the provided chess pieces. The issue has not been resolved, yet. Can't say that I like this board.

Beautiful Chess Board

Very much a beginner but thrilled with the board and the service I received.

Trustworthy, Quality Place to Buy

I spent some time looking for a DGT board elsewhere, but this was the place that had the best price. Their site had good reviews and videos that showed their story and the fact that they genuinely cared about the care and quality of getting good chess gear out to players. I ordered the board and was wondering if they’d actually deliver on their promises. The board got here extremely fast, as promised (I was skeptical because the estimated arrival date was so soon). They sent emails and notifications that helped me feel secure about my package’s progress and it’s whereabouts. I ordered it late one night and they packaged and shipped it out the next morning. The product is great. Their deal was cheaper than anything I could find on Amazon or elsewhere and there weren’t any catches. The board works great. Just as B&H is the trusted source of photography gear, Chess House has shown me that they are the professional and reliable place for chess players to shop. They definitely earned a lifetime customer with this one. Thanks to them!

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 (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
