So disappointed in this gadget. I ordered it as a replacement for my old Franklin Chambers Concise Crossword Dictionary, which is literally falling apart from daily use over a few years. The Seiko is much more complicated to use and doesn't even have a 'Clear' button. It is slightly bigger and heavier than my old one. It's also much more fiddly to use. For example, when you turn it on, you then have to flip through several menu choices to get to 'Crossword', then you have to go through a list of mixed words and phrases to find the one you want. It stops after every 2 or 3 to search again, making it much slower.
I gave up trying to use it and put it back in the box. I'll probably get it out some day, but in the meantime, I'll just use my old Franklin....such as it is.
