Style Name: BES-2100 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This little device does a variety of things, so one person's experience and level of satisfaction may differ from that of someone else. That said, I would suggest reading all of the reviews posted on here in order to fully grasp the strengths and weaknesses of this gadget. I have not even attempted to use all of the features, as of yet.

I need to be able to read Spanish. I've been doing so for over 20 years, yet I don't actually speak the language and I really don't comprehend someone else speaking it at all. When I hear it, I recognize a word here and there, but it is spoken way too quickly for me to grasp. For my needs (reading only), this thing is perfect. I used to have several dictionaries, an idiomatic translation book, a verb conjugation book, and a colloquial reference guide within reach while I was reading a document written in Spanish. With this little translator, I have basically replaced all of those old reference books with something that is much smaller, more convenient, and much faster (some say it drags a bit, but compared to looking something up in a book, it blazes!). Very simply, if I see a word that confuses me, I type it in and BOOM - an instant explanation is given. More often than not, it answers my question and I quickly get back to my document.

Style Name: BES-2100 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've been trying to encourage my kids to learn Spanish for years, putting up with the cries of "Dad! Don't speak Spanish to us!" every time I pointed to something in the grocery store and said "naranja" or "manzana"... Finally, my daughter is entering middle school and has enrolled in a Spanish class, so I thought this little gadget would be super handy.

Unfortunately, it has been somewhat of a disappointment. The package itself is nice and the keyboard has a good feel to it, but the display technology and the user interface is very, very 1980's. In fact, it reminded me of the TRS80 I had in High School - chunky, jaggy letters and "boop, beep, boop" sound effects. Even the "F-key" designation for the menu navigation smacks of 80's era computer interfaces.

From a content/functionality standpoint, however, this device is really very good. The dictionaries seem to be extremely complete (I have not yet found a word that it could not translate). There are a TON of features, games, and even flash cards that can be used to help both a student of Spanish and a traveler to a Spanish-speaking company that needs a little help from time to time (like me now that my Spanish is getting pretty rusty). But I was disappointed with the documentation for all the features and functions. The complete documentation consists of a two-sided 17" x 20"folded up piece of paper crammed with descriptions of all the function keys and a point-by-point explanation of what they do. Very little contextual help is provided in the documentation; I found myself wishing for more of a "step-by-step" guide - a mini "Dummies" guide for the device.

Some of the problems other users have found with this device are logical design implementations. I'll mention some. The processing is slower for battery conservation reasons. If you lower the contrast, it's still clearly readable and you'll extend the battery life even more. The text size can be permanently changed via the settings option. This device far exceeded my expectations. In the future, better headphones (the one's they give are very big for the average ear), will add some major points to this already great product. In addition, the device could use a separate rechargeable Li-battery (or other comparable internal power storage) that'll recharge the device via the USB port to prevent losing the data stored in settings and the customizable folders; sort of like the small battery used to power the CMOS chip in your pc that, in short, holds all the information needed to start you pc properly. If you don't send electrical current to your pc over a long period of time, that battery will drain and die, along with all the boot-up information. Very sad. It's the same deal here, only it happens much quicker (if you take more than a couple seconds to switch your batteries. Backup your data. Don't get all mental with the thing like you do your Blackberry, iPhone, etc., or it will freeze and you'll have to reset it, thereby losing your data. You'll be able to "feel" the device out within the first 30 minutes, knowing how fast you can push it. I would remove the "word of the day" function as the device has no "permanent on" function, so after 5 (or less, depending on the setting) minutes, it'll shut-off and you'll have to take extra time to bypass the word of the day again. Cumbersome, if you're doing a lot of translating during your readings.Read more ›
