5.0 out of 5 stars The best PC dict I've ever had 3 Jan 2010
By BB
Format:Paperback
This is really good. Before you buy it, you can have a guided tour and see if it fits your needs. To me, it's more than good, it is really something I am looking for over several years. The DVD-Rom needs not to be in the PC once it's installed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy hardcover, install alternative viewer 23 April 2013
By luki
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If I could buy it once again I would choose hardcover edition, this cover is too weak in my opinion. My fault.

Shame on you, LDOCE developers! Included software is awful - even as simple things as scrolling and copying text in a normal way seem to be too difficult for your app. Is it really so hard to make simple, fast application which encourages to explore a content of one of the best English-English dictionaries ever? Fortunately, this sort of application EXISTS, but is created not by YOU, but by an outsider, an average user of your soft. And it's free. I recommend to look up the phrase: "LDOCE5 Viewer" in google.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyday companion 14 Feb 2010
By Jacques
Format:Paperback
I am a english language advanced learner and I really fancy this dictionary. I have been using it everyday since I bought it. The software interface is quite good. The pronunciation is either in English or American. There is a lot of example phrases pronounced. You can pop up the dictionary and highlight a word in a text, it will automatically search the word in the dictionary and pronunce it. The definitions are clear enough so I don't need to use a translation anymore.Well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing dictionary 27 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback
I had the previous version of this dictionary and I was in love with dictionary application on my PC. Then I bought a MAC and the software was running very sluggish on MAC. This updated version runs super smooth on a MAC and believe me this is the best English to English dictionary ever! :)
