I love this dartboard, and I don't regret the money spent on it. One issue I noticed is that you have to wait for the Heckler to stop talking or it may not score your throws. This issue has not stopped me from loving this board. The next best thing would be a stand up machine.

The bottom line is I don't feel this board is a good value for the money. I am always willing to pay more for better value, but you can get the same utility from boards that are less expensive. The board construction is standard and the accessories are junky (darts broke the first time used). The audible scoring is a great feature. The Heckler is annoying. The board is showing signs of ware after only a few uses, including erroneous scoring around the bullseye.

      Comments about Arachnid® Cricket Pro 800 Electronic Dart Board with Heckler Feature:

      I really liked this board for a while, but it developed "dead" spots that would no longer register the score. This was after only a few months of casual play. Arachnid was good enough about sending me a new one, but I had to pay to ship the old one back to them. Now the new one is doing the same thing after only a couple of months of use. I shouldn't have to keep sending the board back to get one that works. I've discovered after some research that this is a common problem with this type of board, but who can afford an arcade quality machine costing thousands of dollars? I can no longer recommend this board. It also has way more bounce outs than I first realized.

              Comments about Arachnid® Cricket Pro 800 Electronic Dart Board with Heckler Feature:

              I purchased the Cricket Pro 750, which arrived damaged in shipping. After getting the runaround from the shipper about the return (which they apparently lost), I went straight to Hayneedle, who promptly refunded my money. I then purchased the Cricket Pro 800, and have been very happy with it. This is the only electronic board I've owned, so I can't honestly compare it to others, but it seems like a good buy for the money. Been using it for a few months now. Needs beefier mounting screws.

                Comments about Arachnid® Cricket Pro 800 Electronic Dart Board with Heckler Feature:

                This board works great and is a nice improvement over earlier models. One BIG FLAW that will be apparent with lower skilled players is the plastic display below the board is EASILY damaged by darts hitting it. One game can really make your new board look terrible! SOLUTION: I fashioned a piece of thin protective plexiglas to cover the display and attached it to the board with flexible hinges made of black duct tape at the top corners and soft bumpers at the lower corners to keep plastic from hitting any buttons. I just raise the protective plastic to access buttons as needed. Okay, not the classiest, BUT IT WORKS!
