Great for the price!,
This review is from: Ultimate Dealer Button Pre-Programmable Poker Tournament Timer (Sports)This is a great blinds poker timer...for the price. It also doubles as a Dealer button, which is kind of handy, but probably won't get used for that much, because it's about the same size as a hockey puck, just not as thick.
+ It gives you 10 different rounds where you can set the small blind, the big blind, and the ante, with the option to set a different time for each round. Very cool.
+ It doesn't have set in amounts that you have to have the blinds at. If you want a different kind of play where the small blind is 20 and the big is 45, you can do that!
- The buttons are kind of hard to hold down and you don't get to set each digit, you have to hold it down to get to the number you're looking for, which means to go to 200, you have to hold it down for about 30 seconds for it to get there.
- If you want to insert a round in after you have set all the rounds, you will have to reset all the rounds above it. Say you want it to go 10/20,... Read more

It's a dealer button...,
This dealer button is great. Ten programmable rounds, small blind, big blind, ante - its all there and all customizable. We live overseas and play in a foreign currency so the lack of any monetary units was nice - for us. The only issue I have is the size of the button. It's about 3inchs in diameter (not measuring it at the moment so three seems about right) which is a bit big on the table. That's just a personal preference though. If you're looking for a dealer button with some juice that does more then just count down the round time this is the one you're looking for.
Good Dealer Button/Timer but could be great if...,
This review is from: Ultimate Dealer Button Pre-Programmable Poker Tournament Timer (Sports)After reading a prior post, I was worried about whether or not my new Ultimate Dealer Button (UDB) would look as advertised. I just received my UDB a few days ago. While mine does have all the graphics shown in the picture, the spade is off-centered to the left by an 1/2 inch. Not a huge deal, but I just wish companies would ship what they show or indicate the appearance may vary from the picture.
I can see where the size of the UDB (3 inch diameter) might bother some players, but I like the fact that it will be easier for everyone to see who is sitting in the Dealer position and hopefully cut down on "post your blind" reminders.
As for the functionality of the UDB, it works as described (i.e., 19 programmable rounds, adjustable round timer, small/big blinds and ante). I found it easy to program. Buttons are stiff, but a small price to pay for all the functionality.
UDB, if you are listening, this item could easily go from 'good' to 'GREAT' if the... Read more
