The DGT1001 received the Seal of Approval and Editor's Choice Awards from the Family Review Center.
The Family Review Center has reviewed thousands of products over the years. For a product to qualify for an Award, it must show exceptional value and quality. It must be safe and family friendly. And it must be priced reasonably and fill a void. These are the factors their judges look for when deciding who the winners are.
Their verdict on the DGT1001 was as follows:
"Easy to understand and use right out of the box. Great for count up or count down. Small and compact, so easy to transport from place to place. Solid design and standard features make this a great companion to every chess lover. Works well for other games as well."
