New York Times Chess is not very well documented on the Internet. But one thing is clear: it's not a very strong computer, even among weaker ones.

A nice LCD chess computer to carry around would be Excalibur's Touch Chess, which is about the same price, but 100-200 elo points stronger. And then there are stronger computers like LCD Chess Express and touch Chess II, which are surprisingly strong and which may be a worthy partner for a long time.

But all these Excalibur LCD computers have one disadvantage: they are not exactly strurdy.

So don't be too disappointed if one day it breaks down one day

With best regards,

tom

Hello

I consider buying an Excalibur New York Times Electronic Handheld Chess but I would like to know your opinion first.
Is it worth buying it ?

about  its features:

Includes 500 Mate-In problems.

• Hint option for coaching.

• 32 mate problems for advance training.

• Teaching mode for beginners.

• Rates each of your games.

• Selectable opening lines for play & learning.

• Option to take back mistakes

• Tournament rating

although I still don't know its rating , it seems to be one ideal partner to improve at chess.
what do you think ?

regards
