    excellent for tournament use IF you don't need to see the delay/increment

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Dec 2016

    This is an excellent clock. It is very stable, very durable, and has many good pre-settings that can be easily used for various time controls. Two things it does NOT have are (1) a move counter, and (2) a visible delay or increment counter. In tournaments with a 5-second time delay, this may not make much difference, because most players can "feel" that 5 seconds. But for longer delay or increment, some players might benefit from seeing the delay counting down, e.g. 30-second delay. One tricky thing to keep in mind is that when manually setting the clock time, you need to set hours, minutes, AND seconds BEFORE setting the delay -- many people set the hours and minutes and then wrongly assume the next setting is for the delay, thereby incorrectly setting 60 minutes and 5 seconds and no delay when the time control is actually G/60 minutes with 5 seconds delay.

    Seems like a quality clock

    Posted by Mike on 20th Jan 2016

    I bought this clock over the Martin Luther King Jr. weekend for a tournament (since i forgot to bring my clock)
    I have only used it for this one tournament, but i have to say that it does appear to be a very good clock.
    Easy to set
    Buttons are quiet
    It appears to be able to hold up well in blitz

    While it won't replace my Chronos, it would be a fine second choice.

    I am not and never have been a great fan of the styling of this clock, or of the look and feel, and I think it's slightly overpriced for what you get. But I have to give it credit for being quicker and easier to set than just about any other clock available on the market.

    DGT North American Chess Clock 5 Stars

    Posted by Lucas from Houston on 28th Apr 2013

    As a scholastic chess coach, these are the clocks I favor using with my tournament sets. They are easy to set, very user friendly, and most importantly to me (as a librarian), they are quiet. Pressing the buttons gives tactile feedback but can be done without making much noise. Of course they give a satisfactory thunk when hit hard in blitz games, but non-barbarians can play softly and quietly.

    While I loved this clock, and it was easy to set, it stopped working suddenly right before a tournament. Perhaps it was banged up too much in my chess bag, but the durability was suspect

    As good or better than Chronos and half the price.
