5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Bought for my wife to replace a lost sharp dictionary of similar pedigree. It is a nice piece of kit, light, feels solid and has a host of functions. She is already happily using it to solve her daily crosswords in the paper and uses the dictionary regularly for her job (Head of Content for the local paper). Although maybe not as intuitive as the older one she has...

5.0 out of 5 stars A good dictionary taking up minimum space, 25 Oct 2013

This was bought as a replacement for one that finally broke down. Very useful and much easier to take about than a bulky book.

Does all and more than expected. Previous Sanyo product was used to destruction over 2 years so hope this is a bit more robust and longer lasting. So far it is excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly Fine, 13 Jun 2013

Does what it says on the tin, and good value for money. The menus are a bit fiddly and slow, but there's plenty in there: quotations, word origins, thesaurus etc and I soon got the hang of it. A couple of niggles:- 1) There's no backlight. 2) There are three type sizes: small, smaller and tiny.

while the instrument is very useful the screen print is very difficult to read under artifical light [electric lights] or bright day light conditions, I have A Collin's x-word solver with LCD display , is far easier to read under all conditions, have to tilt the CCD&T to try and read the script.....somewhat dissapointed with this instrument.

excellent product but would benefit from a backlight to make more user friendly. It is sometimes difficult to read if not in a well lit area.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor display and on / off switch sticks draining the battery, 29 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Franklin DMQ1500 Electronic Collins Concise Dictionary and Thesaurus (Electronics)
Disappointed with the display. The characters are way too small and not easy to read particularly in day light. The key pads are a little small for a mans fingers. Would have been better to have buttons for the various functions rather than trawl through the programs for them. The On Off switch is very poor and often sticks down draining the battery if you don't notice it before closing. Several words were not found using the crossword solver even though they were in the dictionary.
Very disappointing product for me. I have an older version with less functions but a better built product.
