I got this board on eBay for the same price scenario Dreams site sells them for. I was lucky I found one because they are on back order for a few more months. The one i Got did not have the noid on it so I simply took the one off my stock board and soldered that on, very simple. After I printed the Manuel off line I set the dwell and eye delay right and i set the Max Rate Of Fire to 20 so I knew I wouldn't chop because my halo can feed 22ish easy. Filled my Halo up with fresh Premium's and let her rip in Semi, wow I like the felling of the 50 gram switch better than stock because it seams easier to walk it is more snappy. I then turned it to Full Auto at 20 bps, and all u can see is a perfect line of paint. It was picture perfect, I felt like I was shootin an angel or something. This Board is way better than all the other more expensive boards. Still cant believe the speed of this gun from what it was. If you can find one like me buy it right away if not it is well worth the wait pre order yours now!
This Board Is the best board made for the ION. 10 out of 10 all the way!

Lots of modes, Very customizeable
Buttons stick out too far and catches on frame. Buttons are poorly made
I ordered 3 T-board for my team-mates and while installing them, the setup mode button broke off on two of them and the power button broke off the other. I am unsure if this is a bad batch or what but I'm waiting on a reply from Damon. I chose the T-board because of all the people that were happy with it, but this changed my view on t-boards.
Update: I got 3 more back, and they were also faulty. These are poorly made boards, buyer beware.
I would buy it again, but I think there should be better quality control on the t-boards. I have seen t-boards that mow, but these ones cant even turn on. I give this a 6 because of the problems I am having, but it gets credit for all the other Ions ive seen mowing with one.
Update: I change my rating to a 1 because all 3 t-board I originally got were faulty, and got 3 more back that were also made poorly and the buttons fell off.

Well i got the board a while ago and it was great. they(zephyrpaintball.com)said it was version c but it was real version a. but i kept it for a while and it was great. but then the batery connector went bad. emailed damon. he said send it back and they would fix it. 1 week later, i recieved a brand new version c t board. amazing. it was all free of charge. now the power button and membrane pad connecter broke off so i'll try to fix it and if i can't i will send it back again.
just got it back awesome as ever. also got a membrane pad. also the wiring on that was questionable cuz two broke but i soldered them and now it's perfect.
Friendly service, great modes and stuff, though questionable quality...
moved up to a nine because of the grat service

Easy to use
Breaks like glass
Eye logic isn't that great
Printing out manuals
When i first got this board i stick in the battery and just start clicking the noid in NXL and was impressed by the speed. So then i dissconect the battery and deside to go shoot some paint with it... This is were things start to go wrong, i am feeding the battery and membrane wires down through the frame and the black battery wire snaps off the battery connecter. So then i go break out the soldering tools and fix it up. I go to shoot some paint and start shooting fast, it then starts to chop about 1in 30 balls sometimes 2 in a row (yes chops not barrel breaks.) I play with the settings some more and it is getting better but still not were i would like it chopping about 1 or 2 a hopper. A couple weeks later after lubing everything i go to reinstall the board and guess what same problem, the other battery wire falls right off. Other than the problems stated this things rips. Maybe i just got a deffective board but who knows just stating my expierience.
Good board for the money. I had some trouble with mine and after reading other reviews maybe i just got a defective one. I would recomend buying one but i going to give it a 7 becuase of the problems i had with it.

SP Ion w/QEV, CP Sling Blade trigger & Progressive 2K6 Barrel
ICD ProMaster stock Dosn't need improving
(all using EGG with Z Board (23BPS)
Tight fit (see review)
I received the T Board today and installed it today. After adjusting the settings and trimming a hose or two I was set to go. I set the Board to 20 ROF with the additional settings for a Ion with QEV (dwell, debounce and eye delay). I then fired 500+ paintball thru the marker to test the set up and was very pleased. My chrono was consistent at an average of 272 FPS, but my average BPS was at 18. This was great, the board preformed flawlessly, I still have to adjust one of the hoses (trim it) due to a small air leak but not a killer to the test. I reached 20 BPS twice during the test. Additionally I purchased the membrane pad from Scenario Dreams and I definitely feel this is a must, it makes programming easier. As for Tight fit, this refers to the battery compartment being tight due to the board is larger than the stock and the added wires (membrane pad and battery wire). You can upgrade the board to a version D at scenario dreams for $15, which is smaller to make the fit better. But if you are slow and deliberate the battery install is easy.
update: I fixed a leak when I installed it i pulled one hose and cracked the end of it on the barb not a manufacturers problem but operator error. After replacing the hose, no leaks no worries.
This board for the price has all the same features as the virtue at over half the price ($54 + $7 shipping) Action Village. Get it you wont be disappointed.

Modes, easy to use, customer service
I have had two of the ion T boards and really they are a nice board. Take into account that you are only paying about $75-80 for it. The modes are easy to change and all adjustments and mode changes can be made without taking the grip off. Throw in the membrane option and it only gets better.
Another big plus is the fact that Damon (scenario dreams) has the best customer service I have come across.
The downside however is the eye logic seems to be lacking on this board. This means that when you fire the gun and the ball does not leave the breech for whatever reason (a smashed paintball) the gun will keep on firing. I have not had this problem with the virtue board. This is the only thing that I can say that isn't top notch on this board. I have since sold both of my T boards and now shoot the virtue but they are pretty close to being equal.
I would feel real safe in saying go ahead and buy one I am sure you will love it. I mean really it is almost half the price of the virtue. The BH board is not worth the money if you pay the $100 but I got one for $26 new and I thought that was worth it to have a decent backup board. This gets a 9 because of the eye logic.
-Ease of setting modes
-Ease of changeing modes
None at all
Well it sucks now because it's discontinued but if you can still get your hands on one definitly go for it. The thing that sets this apart from other boards is the way you can change all your settings and modes from the back of the frame if you get the dye membrane pad with it(definitly get it!). Another good thing that sets this apart from the APE(which also has a pad on the back) is the fact you can still use the board and change your settings if your pag breaks. The ape cannot function without a pad.
This board has great modes and really is killer,get it!

This is, IMO, the second best (if not the best) board for the Ion there is. It is sooo easy to use, plenty of settings but not too many. Plus the fastest Ion ever had one of these and shot 36bps! So yeah, this thing is just amazing. if you can find one used, buy it!
Great board. Along with the APE, this board rocks the Ion world.

I bought an ion during the winter and I wanted it totally upgraded, searched out many kinds of boards and found the T-board to be the best value.
Installed really fast aired up my gun and shot up my firepit and I was so happy. Then I went back inside and noticed Mine did not come with instructions. No biggy I printed some offline, and then I changed all the settings on my gun and rips so fast and is totally air efficent.
A month ago I was taking apart my gun to clean it and when I went to remove the battery the wires that connect the battery to the board came off. So I tried to re-solder them back in but I failed. Emailed SD and I told them the problem and they sent me a brand new board! Sweet.
Now, as I was installing the new board into my gun the hose for the middle banjo or in my case then QEV was to short!! What the heck, so I had to pull that hose off the board and replace it with a longer hose, finally as I went to turn on my gun, I couldn't turn it on I took it apart and the button for the power source was not there!! Now I am going to email them again and get yet another board.
It is an awesome product I don't intend on scarring any one away. but, just be carefully with it. and if you do break something just email them and tell them you need a new one.

ALot of wires to fit under grips, had to get nut on trigger.
I opened it the day i got it and it was so beautiful i quickely put it in, took a few mins to get the setting right so then went out side and started ripping paint. So much cheaper i got the board a nut for trigger, and the dye membrane pad and it is SEXY. Best board i ever used borar dto own one,
Same thing as virute but half the price just cuz senerio dreams is not a big name.
