The most essential tool I've never known I wanted..,
By A Customer
This review is from: Sharp PWE500A Electronic Dictionary and Thesaurus with Quotations, Crossword and Puzzle Solver (Office Product)Saw the Sharp dictionary in a newspaper article, and thought that I'd risk a purchase. My first surprise upon getting it was just how stylish and portable it really is. My second was how easy it is to use, which is a refreshing change.
The content in the PW-E500 is what really makes it special, and I've found myself using all 3 of the reference works included. The dictionary definitions are superb, and the use of encylopedic data is an essential part of its appeal,along with the clearest text I've seen. The thesaurus is excellent, and I've found the quotations book to be both useful and informative.
I've used products by others, but what I've found different with the Sharp device is how it can be used as an interactive tool, leaping around different words, going back and forth in search of the right one. It's something that would take too long with normal dictionaries.
In summary - it's exceptional/extraordinary/singular/unprecedented... , and judging by reactions from my colleagues, will also be making many more appearances.
