Should I choose DGT 2010 or XL?

  • #1

    Hi there!

    I'm considering which one of these two clocks to choose.

    The two clocks cost pretty much the same in the store where I shop (about $8 difference).

    I don't own an e-board, but I have no idea, if I for some reason (maybe because of some future software training tool or something) would want to connect to an e-board in the future. It speaks for buying the XL.

    I can't tell if the display is the same on the two clocks.

    When I look at the two clocks, it looks (and sounds) as if the buttons are a bit more "smooth" on the 2010, but I don't know if this is true? Listen to the button-sound in these two videoes:

    XL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krsDPQsRcow

    So, is there any difference between the two models when it comes to buttons and displays? Which would you choose, and why?

    Merry Christmas! :)

    I went for the DGT 2010 after some serious thought and advice from the chairman at my chess club. :) It seems great, though the buttons (not the lever) are very noisy.

    I also received some chess pieces as a Christmas present. Thought I would show you guys. They should have looked like the ones at the top of the picture (picture from the ad), but I got the ones at the bottom of the picture - pay special attention to the black knight ...

    The DGT 2010 is by far the best:

    1. Offcial FIDE Chess Clock
    2. Ready set time settings (can be manually set!)
    3. Very accurate!
    4. Move counting!

    Only one minor problem: VERY EXPENSIVE!!!

    Trust me: buy DGT 2010!
