I bought this for my husband who had worn out his previous 'solver' and he is delighted with it and says that it does just as it says on the box!

I almost sent it back as it seemed to fail almost as soon as I started to use it. However, on close examination I found that the row of keys directly under the screen are liable to get caught under the edge of the key apertures on the case. It is essential to press the keys squarely to ensure that they don't stick down. Having owned an earlier Franklin machine I can say that this newer model's dictionary is not quite as comprehensive as the old one with less words. The case is better made than the old one and the lid hinges are more sturdy.

I have bought a version of this before and it lasted for years. The new model doesn't disappoint. Has all the original features and up-to-date info. For the crossword enthusiast, the Collins Bradford Crossword solver is a must!

A very compact piece of equipment. A wide variety of information incorporated making it a very versatile tool for not only crossword puzzles but also for general knowledge.

No idea what sort of crossword puzzle this is supposed to help with, it has the vocabulary of a 4 year old. I do The Times and The Guardian cryptics. I had a Franklin Chambers concise crossword dictionary machine CWR 206 which did a pretty good job but is now on its last legs. Extraordinarily later models don't have plurals so useless for anagrams. This does do plurals but possibly because it tries to do too much with its Encylopedia etc it is so limited. Oh, and the keys keep getting stuck down.

Absolutely awful.
Thescreen is very difficult to read and does not resemble that shown in the illustration at all.Blue characters on a blue background---ugh!
And there is no way to adjust the brightness.Even my 20+ year old Casio has a clearer screen.
Operation is very confusing and convoluted.I just couldn't work it out.Maybe it's me.....

Bought to replace a previous model that died having given many years service. Like the bigger screen on this one but the downside of that is that the whole machine is bigger and therefore much harder to type with one hand whilst holding your crossword with the other! Like the cover as much less likely to get switched on by mistake in a suitcase

Does everything my very old Bradford Collins does. The Crossword list alone is worth buying it for and is more up to date than my last eg the last British PM is now Tony Blair!.
I find the display fine when adjusted to large type.

1 star deducted as there is a tendency for keys to stick down
