The device is built well and is very strong and high quality keyboard. I have had it for months now and love it. It is small and light enough to take it anywhere in your pocket. The lid protect it - no need for buying cases.
would have been much better delivered here
only problem slight is latin spanish oriented a bit
but still at least 4 stars
It also has a proper English dictionary (English words with English definitions) which is an added bonus. This feature would also be useful for higher level Spanish learners of English, as they are encouraged to avoid translations when possible and use the native English dictionary to understand the new word, only reverting to the translator if necessary.
It also takes ordinary batteries which is a bonus (2 x AAA) so you don't have to plan ahead and keep spares of a size you will not use anywhere else.
It has the usual games and conjugations. I am very pleased indeed with it. My only reason for not giving 5 stars is that it is not backlit, and unlike all our other screens nowadays, it is difficult to see in dim conditions. If they fixed this design feature, it would be PERFECT. I think it really deserves 4 1/2 stars without a backlight because in every other way it is the perfect portable Spanish-English (and English only) dictionary.
If I have missed this feature I would like to know! It would be great to have an off-line translator.
The device runs on two AAA batteries.
The inside feels sturdy especially the buttons. Should really have come with a carrying pouch or sleeve.Instead you get a tonne of unreadable small prints/instruction 'guide'/ survey junk.
The biggest let down is that the screen doesn't have any backlight.
Note: the inside is black as shown in the picture above, but the outer side of the device is actually silver.

Not a bad product but interface over complex so only 4 stars - smaller than expectedPublished 13 months ago by Peter Taylor
This item is ok for use mainly as a pocket dictionary but is limited in use as a translator, as you cannot form sentences for translation. Read morePublished 13 months ago by michael broadbent
Pretty good - only four stars as the instructions weren't very clear, but for the basic translation features I've used it works well once I got used to it. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Youngjan
Waste of money. I don't use it. Better off with a dictionary even if it is heavier and apps like wordlens make it obsolete if you have a smartphone.Published 15 months ago by Tessa
amazing little bit of kit.
When folded it's less than half the size of a phone, if a bit thicker. perfect size to just stick in your pocket. Read more
