Bought for My mother but she found it difficult to see as background is too dark and too close in colour to the words. We both prefer the franklins chambers concise crossword dictionary for our crosswords. Easier to read. Had that for years. And easier to use. Shame cos we love the brad fords books.

As a professional crossword compiler I have for many years used the popular Seiko ER6100 OED much favoured by felllow Times Crossword Club members for its speed and many excellent features, the only major drawback being that after a few months (in my case intensive) use, the buttons start to fail and soon cease working. When my fifth ER6100 went on the blink I was sorry to see it had been discontinued and was not available for love nor money, not even a direct appeal to Seiko, and sorrow turned to near panic when I bought its successor the ER6700, to find it not a patch on its precursor. Don't take my word for it - read the reviews. But all is well. With some misgivings I bought the much cheaper Franklin CSB1500 and I am absolutely delighted with it. It has an excellent dictionary, thesaurus and encyclopaedia, and is the most user friendly I have come across for lists and solving problems. I agree with some of the gripes about the small characters, but this is a direct consequence of having a much fuller screen with a lot more on it. So unless there is something seriously wrong with your eyesight it is fine in this respect too. All in all it will be my best purchase of 2015, and I am in Franklins debt. Congratulations on a very fine piece of gizmomanship

I gave this as a Christmas present but it had stopped working by Jan 6th. Contacted the dealer and they appeared to be reluctant to take any action and I felt that they treated my as though I was some sort of idiot. They finally provided me with a returns address but no prepaid returns label so that cost me £3.00. As of today I am still awaiting some action.

The features are excellent but the display is absolutely awful. The illustration on the packaging shows it as black on white but in reality it is dark blue against a greyish green background. I found that I needed to keep tilting it to make the words legible. A very disappointing purchase.

we have had and used the previous Franklin model for years and found it excellent. The replacement is not as intuative and is just too complicated. The previous model was much simpler, fewer options and much easier to use. We tend not to use it, so we may never get used to it

The first of these supplied had a slightly discoloured screen, but worked OK for a week then crashed. If it works it is a good machine. We sent the first back, and received the second. As of Christmas Eve..this crashed with the monster cryptic crossword to do. This time a refund I think.

The info on amazons web page says this takes AAA batteries as did the earlier version. This was one reason I bought this model. However it takes the cr batteries which will work out to be more expensive. I find that the enter key and the soft keys can get stuck under the casing.

This was a replacement for my original Bradford's Crossword Solver ,took a bit to get used to using it but now that I have found my way around find it just as good as the original. Would highly recommend this machine.
