Tired of not having anyone to play against? Can't get motivated to practice when you're home alone? Hate finding out that you're out of chalk/dry erase markers at the beginning of a match? Tired of chalk dust getting all over the place? If you answered yes to any of these questions then this scorekeeper is for you.
You can play head-to-head against other throwers or against the scorekeeper itself. You can program it to play one of seven different skill levels in 301 DI/DO, 501 SI/DO and cricket (level 1 being the toughest). You'll want to leave your ego at the door, level 1 is truly a "Professional" level. Ton eighties are very common at this level in '01.
Recommendation: Save some money and buy it! It's never been easy for me to practice by myself, now I have something if not somebody to throw against at all times. Words of warning though, don't let it speed up your throw. With human opponents, you have some time between throws while they throw, mark their score and walk back past the line. With the computer, you don't have that. By the time you get back to the line, the computer has calculated it's score and it's your turn again. I found myself rushing my throw at first and couldn't figure out why my accuracy was down. Spent five hours playing against it the first night I had it, my arm was actually sore the next morning. That hasn't happened in years.

WOW! This puppy rocks! If you've ever found yourself looking for an opponent of skill level 'x', this is it. The DM3 plays like a human opponent. It makes mistakes and can get lucky too. It adjusts its' strategy as it plays. The DM3 plays with little mercy, at the higher levels. Even at the 'average' level, you can be taken by surprise. For the serious league player, seeking to get a lot of practice, this is the ticket. When used for x01, it'll give figures for 'darts thrown' and 'points per dart' You can even choose who goes first, you or the DM3.
It works really great as a scoreboard too. The display is clear and easy to understand, even from the throwing line. Input is simple and can be corrected if an error is made. Those big numbers are no longer so intimidating. The DM3 does the math for you.
The price tag is not cheap. I figured that by practicing at home,with the DM3, instead of at the bar, my beer money savings can cover the price tag. You can't get serious practice like this anywhere else. Right at home, no spectators to potentially watch you get whipped. No hard feelings either. BUY IT!
