I have used a lot of Chinese dictionaries. Big ones, litle ones, ones from Taiwan, from Beijing, and from the USA, Chinese to English and vice versa, Pinyin/English, ones with characters clear enough to copy, ones that show how the character originated. I have lots of dictionaries.
This dictionary has it all. It is small, but large enough that the characters are readable for those learning to write. There are enough ways to locate a word or concept that you just don't go away empty handed. The price is right too!
For students and long time speakers of Chinese, I highly recommend this dictionary.
