Acceptable dictionary service. (Quick, short definitions to a large number of everyday words)
Useful pronunciation service.
Perceptible delay in appearance of definition after word has been typed in(though you get used to it)
SLOW word correction (if you type in a word/spelling not in the dictionary, the wait is excruciating while it comes up with alternatives. To be fair, this search can be canceled promptly if you typed in a wrong word by mistake)
Not quite portable. Dictionary could have been more comprehensive, used AAA batteries. Top heavy (literally), unwieldy in the hand due to 4 AAs.
Would have preferred more comprehensive definitions and lesser games. More comprehensive meaning better definitions and more etymologies. I would not agree with the term "Language Master" because of the perceived deficiencies in the number of words and length of definitions.
I would NOT call it a good reference either.
Compared to the the excellent free service at [...] and my own idea of a portable dictionary.
Keys go clackety clack - could have used softer keys.
I would not recommend this buy.
Why don't we have more competition in the electronic dictionary sector?
If its something that you'd like to put in one place, then I'd suggest you buy this. If you have plans to bringing it everywhere, then I'd suggest one with a protection lid.
I do not blame its size since it is obviously for desktop use. But I soon found that its display should be allowed to tilting; it reflects too much light. Further, the operation speed is significantly associated with the battery power. The newest model is equipped with low battery indication; I hope it helps.
Further, it would be good if the dictionary can include more examples of word usage. It may be that the paper copy of the dictionary does not contain sufficent examples.
Last, it may be good or not, Frankline does not support downloading new words. There should be a function that allows you to input the new word manually; I have never used it. But if it can accept download, it would be great. Nowadays, the technology should enable this dictinoary do this easily.
While there are some shortcomings of Franklin e-dict, I will recommend this to anyone who are looking for a real e-dict that is put on the desktop use and do not want a lot of games or irrelevant add-in.
