Ideally suited for chess clubs,schools and home use
A serious point about chess clubs though. Many clubs participate in two leagues or more which will have time controls both different and not pre-programmed. The DGT 2010 can cope with this, since you set the time controls at the start of the season and it will remember the settings. My particular local setting is that consecutive weeks will see matches with 75 minutes and an extra 15 minutes and 80 minutes with 10 second increments.
Roger this clock can cope with that, amending any pre-programmed option will automatically store the new setting in option "99"
until either the battery is removed or a new amendment is made.
It's quick to do, took me about an hour while half watching tv to open 120 new clocks put the battery in and set for 40 minutes with 10 second increments and repack the boxes.
is a user defined setting with up to 4 time periods each with an option of move setting and increments, this takes longer to set but as a one off gives full freedom to fit any requirement.
To view the move number during play, press either the "-" or "+" key and hold for 3 seconds, release and the display will return to the game time.
