I really want my second saber with sound or the emerald driver, and I can't decide. Please help and give your opinions and recommendations.

Save a bit more money and get Diamond instead Wink You won't regret it!

I have an Emerald w/ Obsidian v3, but if Diamond would've been available at that time, I would've chosen that. Emerald is cool, but you always need a PC to change its colour. Same with the Obsidian v3, you always need a PC for changing the sound fonts.

Diamond lets you combine your favourite sound fonts with your favourite colours, and it lets you switch between them on-the-fly! Not to mention volume changes on-the-fly, if you need to mute it temporarily without switching to the actual mute font and all the other features that Diamond offers.

I agree with above posts. If you ever want a variety of sounds and/or colors the Diamond is a good buy. If you don't need the changes then don't do it, but otherwise I like it. If you have more that one saber, each can have its own sound and color.  On the other hand if you grab one you can change the color, and its sound, fairly easily. No PC, no memory card.

Diamond is a bit expensive, though. Will send pics of whatever I get, though!

The diamond is about $30-40 more than the Emerald, but worth it if you want color AND sound options.

 Grin Ya know what? US wouldn't produce diamond controllers if they thought we couldn't get them. All in for me!!!

I will take a while to get it, though.  Cry

ShadowyKnight, I  get how you feel. I only have 1 Diamond controller saber  (Emperor's Hand), and I am still learning how to use it. I'm NOT A TECH PERSON, AT ALL! I may get at least one emerald driver saber with sound. But the fact is (for me) I want my sabers to stay the way I designed them. If I want the option to change colors, I go with quick disconnect. It's cheaper but still gives me some options.  If you're unsure, save up and wait for a sale or a raffle. That way, if you go for the Diamond, you may qualify for some freebies.

Good idea. Thank you!
