I like the puzzles, but seeing them is difficult at best. You have to have it at exactly the right angle in exactly the right light. You get what you pay for, I guess.

I ended up buying a Nintendo DS Lite with the "NY Times Crossword Puzzles" game and am much happier. It was a lot more expensive, but I can add other games ("Solitaire Overload" is great, for example) and it's much nicer to use.

I really enjoyed this machine, until about the 5th time I turned it on - characters started dropping off of the screen. Before long entire rows were missing characters. I assumed I got a bad one, so I bought another of the same - it was cheap enough, right? Bad Idea! Exactly the same thing happened to the second one I bought. They are both in the landfill, now, may the God of electronics rest their little souls. I love crosswords, though, and I was not to be deterred, so I bought the Sharper Image Crossword Puzzle Deluxe Edition with Touch-Screen (about $40) and I could not be happier - I should have done this in the first place - I would have saved myself $40 in broken, useless machines!!! If you love doing the NY Times crossword and want a nice machine that will last a good long time, Buy the Sharper Image version (available here at Amazon!) - It has a nice leather zip-up cover, a stylus for the screen, and a back-light, so you can play in the dark!

Bought this for my mother's 89th birthday because she loves crossword puzzles. But even I (her daughter) had trouble seeing the screen and following the instructions. Way too complicated for her and me!

I bought the Excalibur New York Time crossword puzzle game to replace a previous one that i had lost. The first one worked fine. The latest one stopped working after a few days. At first, lines started blanking out, then eventually the whole screen went blank. Don't think I will buy another one.

I bought this product for my boyfriend who is a crossword puzzle fanatic. He likes the toy, but I think he still prefers the old-fashioned way using a pen on a newspaper puzzle. Overall, I would recommend this product and the price was great.

The directions for use of the crossword puzzle do not adequately describe how to use the puzzle. I am having to deduce how to use it, but to no avail thus far.

Broke within first week of use. Had to return for refund. Would have been nice and convenient for travel. Too bad

Product came with the clamshell packaging covered with goo. The product didn't work. I was very disappointed because I like Excalibur's electronic crossword puzzles, but I guess the supplier didn't have one to replace it with, so they refunded my money.
