-Long Battery Life
I originally bought 3 T-Borads as I was building custom Ions for a period of time and selling them. The T-Board was sporting the highest ratings of any board in ANY price range so I didn't even question the purchase.
First things first, of the 3 boards I bought, 2 had to be returned because they were falling apart right out of the box (trigger switch was broken right off in both cases). Despite that I wasn't to discouraged as they come with a lifetime warrenty to which Scenario Dreams was very helpful with.
Second, these boards were being installed into two stock trigger frames and one FBM frame... none fit even close to properly. I was forced to shave down all 3 bodies just to have them fit (I should mention that they look like they fit, until you go to put a battery in and then it becomes so tight that one of two things are a possiblity 1) The wires will cut or 2) The borad will break cause the battery and trigger frame WILL NOT bend).
Thirdly, the way the board is setup is EXTREMELY complicated in comparison to other boards and the manual does a terrible job in giving clear cut explanation for everything.
In the end, I got all three Ions working but it took much more effort and time than any part install should (about 2 months).
!!!!It is also important to point out that this board will not work with certain triggers as it uses an offset trigger pad so any trigger (such as New Designs) that use a pin style screw for switch function will actually completely miss the trigger pad, but Scenario Dreams does point this out on the package, so beware of your board/trigger combo!!!!
The Ions worked great when finally up and going with very fine tuned performance and as far as I know I have had no problems from any of the people I built the Ions for (other than confusion in board settings).
Bottom line though, no one should be expected to have to be an Ion specialist to install and program these boards and the time is not worth the little bit of money you save.
I would suggest either sticking with a stock board or if you really want to upgrade go Blackheart (for an easy to use board with great performance) or a Virtue (easy to install and works perfectly after tuned).
For the Tech Geeks out there like myself, go for it... but I warned you.

I had trouble with the fit, but I used my brane and realized that the back grip screw was holding the board back. A couple of twist and presto - fit like a glove. I thought it was hard to program, then i found the manual. I can read, and presto - easy as pie cause i am smert. (spelling errors i maid on purpose.)
