GOOD:

*Small and easy to carry. It really does fit in a shirt pocket.

*The dictionary is quite good. It is more complete than any dictionary you could easily carry around.

*If the word you type in is a French verb form, the dictionary will find the infinitive. For example, if you type in "aie", the dictionary will tell you this is a form of "avoir."

BAD:

*The screen is very small. For some words, there are lots of meanings and examples and scrolling through the text to find what you want is a slow and tedious job. For example, the entry for "tout" has 122 lines (I just counted them) and the only way to go through it is to press a scroll button that moves the screen one line at a time. You can hold the scroll button down to make the text go faster but then you won't see what you are looking for. You can make the type size smaller, so 4 lines show at once instead of three, but then (i) everything is in upper case and accents are nearly impossible to make out, and (ii) you still have to scroll one line at a time and the entry for "tout" still has 120 lines. In short, long entries, like the one for "tout, are practically unusable.

*The screen resolution is low. The publicity picture shows a screen with nice crisp looking type, but that's a photo of the scratch protector that covers the screen. When you peel off the scratch protector and use the dictionary you find that the letters on the screen are made up from very visible dots, like 9-pin dot-matrix printers from the 1980s (if you are old enough to remember those).

*The processor is slow. You often have to wait while the dictionary searches for something. Even when you are just scrolling through an entry, you often have to wait.

This is a great dictionary. Lightweight and easy to carry about. But be clear: it is NOT a translator. It doesn't do phrases easily. Under specific words you can find usages in the form of phrases but as far as I can tell, that's about it. Great for looking up both French and English words quickly and easily & great for verb conjugations. I haven't had it very long so I could be missing something. I take French lessons regularly, it's a big help and easy to use in class when needed.

Not very user friendly. Poor display and complicated translation. Rather use WorldReference on the internet instead or buy an off-line translator to run on a tabled of a phone.

The keyboard has a strange configuration. Some of the letters are in wrong positions for a standard qwerty board. Odd!!
