This review is from: Collins DMQ 1490 Advanced Dictionary Suite (Office Product)
This was purchased on the understanding that it had 500,000 definitions, which exceeds the 350,000 definitions of the Sharp PWE300/PWE500 dictionaries which I have also.
Pros: Has a lot of information via its multiple dictionaries and thesaurus.
Cons: Keys have to be pressed fairly hard to register. LCD looks cheapish/gaudy. LCD and/or processor slow to update screen. Anagram solving feature need more definitions. Dictionary still needs more definitions.
I found this dictionary to be a bit awkward to use (because of the above cons), and to be no better (actually slightly worse) than the PWE300/PWE500 dictionaries for use in solving crosswords.
I returned the Collins dictionary for a refund as the cons far outweighd the pros.
Still the best overall dictionary, thesaurus and crossword solver units are the Sharp PWE300 and PWE500.
