Review: This board is like night and day compared to the stalk one. For starters the battery life is much longer, you can leave a nine volt in it and come back 3 months later and not have to put a new battery in it. The lcd shows up much nicer than the led. d bounce(tt filter) lets you set the trigger pull to nice and light so you can rip away. has setup for the soon to be released break beam eyes. you can even setup the timer to where it will start with your first trigger pull. this thing is awesome.
Update: i was so happy with this board in my orracle i got another for my 2k3 cocker and the results were just as amazing i just hope they come out with the data link soon for these and the e2 boards real soon
Conclusion: this thing basically turns your E1 into a E2(electronically speaking the board has ale the advance setups they have in the e2 board) at a fraction of the price only $180 plus shipping and you have to send them your old board but if you wan to keep your old board it is another $100 more. Get this you won't be sorry.

I wouldn't say that this turns your E1 in to an E2 exactly. There are a number of mechanical differences between the E1 and E2 frame, such as different trigger shape and fitting, a different pivot point and a larger, more powerful magnet which provides a much more positive trigger response.

However, I would agree that the board provides exactly the same electronic featured as the E2 (other than a smaller LCD display on the ZeroB). It does bring the performance of the E1 frame a lot closer to that of an E2, and as stated, it makes a big difference compared to the stock E1 board.

I have both frames, and personally find the mechanical changes to the E2 make it a lot easier to shoot fast. However, disregarding this factor, the actual raw performance figures are much, much closer. Using the factory filter and de-bounce settings, and only having changed the trigger pull length and weight to my tastes, I have been able to achieve a rate of fire of 19bps with the E2. With the same settings on the E1 with ZeroB board, I have achieved 18bps - not a great deal of difference, just a little harder to achieve. For those who can't, or don't want to, switch to an E2, the ZeroB really can make a big difference.

Most websites that sell it don't have that retarded board-exchange program going on. Why Eclipse even thought of that is beyond me, but I'm glad they're not actually implementing it.

Actually, Eclipse don't require you to return your stock board in order to receive the ZeroB at the part exchange price - they send you the new board before you return the old board (they actually include a static free sleeve with the new board for you to return the old board in).

They fully accept that once the new board is in your hands they have no real power to make you return the old board. The expense of taking legal action would far outweigh any money they recovered. However, they will not guarantee your new board if you don't return the old board. If you are going to buy from a shop that charges the part exchange price, but aren't returning your old board, make sure that they will support you if you have any problems, as Planet are under no obligation to do so (as you are breaking the verbal contract that you will return your old board).
