All the preset programs are listed at the bottom of the clock so u dont have to carry around the book for reference.
1 feature I do like is when the sound is on it will give you an audible warning when you time reach 10sec.
My only complaint about this clock is it takes too long to reset the clock. There is a 5 step procedures to reset. Thats insane!!
1. Turn off
2. Turn on
3. Select program (last program use starts first)
4. Select the time
5. Press the play/ pause button to start the clock
SMH..... Im a blitz player and I like to start the next game right away. They should have made a one touch reset button for it. The Chronos have then beat in that department. Other then that its a excellent clock to have. Im considering purchasing another one for a back up, just in case.
The Chronos clocks are constructed well and the touch plate versions have a "coolness" factor. They are also capable of Bronstein and Fischer time controls. However, they have 3 buttons to control the entire setup, making it a bit cumbersome and tedious. For the price, the clock is not easy to setup, nor does it display enough information during the setup. The long Chronos clocks also take precious space away from players in cramped tournament tables. The soft touch plungers, and touch plate, make for smooth play.
The USCF Game Time is a fine clock and at roughly the same price point as the DGT 2010. It's limitation is that it is only capable of Bronstein time controls. In addition, the Game Time requires 4 AA batteries. Setup is fairly easy, presenting enough information on-screen. One drawback is that the plungers are fairly loud, and people unaccustomed to using them stopping pressing down when they feel resistance and do not trip the opponent's timer.
The DGT 2010 Clock runs on 2 AA batteries (DGT claims that it will run for 7 years on a pair of batteries), is Bronstein and Fischer time control capable, is light weight, but durable. Like the Chronos, when you push the button after completing a move, there is no doubt that you hit your clock; I have had opponents not press my Game Time plunger hard enough and only stopped the clock.Read more ›
- Increments (Add time every move)
- Delays (Extra time per move but extra time is not added if you move faster than extra time)
- Different Time per player (Example: 5min vs 2min for handicap purposes)
- Tons of built-in commonly played modes
The only small thing I hoped was a reset button. But resetting the clock by turning it on and off isn't too big of a hassle.
The clock has 36 timing modes; enough for every game you've ever heard of, and several more that you haven't. Twelve are variations of Fischer's bonus after each move. The modes are divided into fourteen categories, and the clock can "remember" one user setting for each category. So, for example, it can remember G/10 or G/15, but not both. Our local club plays G/2 hours with a 5 second delay, except when the first round starts late. Then each player gets 15 minutes less. The clock can remember either one of these modes, but not both.
The clock uses the "Bronstein" delay, which re-adds the delay time after you make your move. This can lead to arguments when you have only 6 seconds left, and you use all of them to make your move. You expect to have 5 seconds left, but I think you'll find that you have zero instead. I could be wrong about this.
After each move, you press the lever on your side of the clock, as you would on an analog clock. Except once, at the start of the game. Then you press the center button to start the clock. The first time I used the clock, we played several moves before my opponent mentioned that the clock was not counting down. How embarrassing! I didn't know to press the center button. We switched to his windup mechanical clock for the rest of the game.
I would prefer that delay be a separate option that could be applied to any mode. I think the instruction manual could be written more clearly.

Most of the presets in this clock do not match commonly used presets for USCF tournaments. That means one has to go through the time consuming process of manually setting the time... Read morePublished 5 months ago by W. Geoffrey McAuliffe

Sent it back. Clumsy mechanism for switching times. Plungers need to be press all the way down or you will have it ignore your press. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Chris
Good product, would have been better if there was a reset button to use it for next game instead of switch off and on againPublished 17 months ago by Karthik
The clock was actually for my 11 year old grandson who loves playing chess and he enters 2-3 tournaments each year. He loves the clock and he uses it to improve his skills.Published 17 months ago by Mike Sherrell
