Rating the Franklin, 14 Nov. 2013
My Sharp electronic dictionary is better than the Franklin for the following reasons.
The Sharp has the on/off button on the main typing pad which is easier to get at than the Franklin which is awkwardly placed on the side and not too easy to use.
The Sharp uses only One AA battery - the Franklin has Two (not a big issue)
The Sharp switches on immediately but the Franklin takes a few seconds ( don't like)
The auto switch off time set to max is only 5 minutes. Would benefit from a longer time.
Some words on my Sharp don't come up on the Franklin. This is a bit strange!!
For general use I would recommend the Sharp over the Franklin.
