Saitek Chessman (1996)

Produced in 1996, The Saitek Electronic Chessman has the same design as the Saitek Travel Companion which came out in 1994.

The playing levels are awkward and it takes a very long time to respond once you get into the D1 to H8 playing levels. This is very similar to Saitek Companion, Saitek Travel Companion and also RadioShack Companion. We can assume from this that the software inside these machines are all identical.
