When I was in School my Family got me The Franklin Dictionary & Thesaurus Computer, it was in 1987 over 25 years ago. I still have it and still works although a little outdated. After looking at dozens of Advanced Dictionary & Thesaurus I decided to get this one, Franklin Electronics Merriam-Webster's Advanced Dictionary and Thesaurus. Well, that was a mistake, I find it to be too small for me just under half the size of my old one, it measures 5 Inches Long by 3.3 Inches Wide and the Screen measures 3.2 Inches Long by about 1.1 Inches Wide. The Screen is Hard to Read I have to Tilt the Unit certain way to be able to read it, over a Dark Greenish Background with Blue Lettering Font, Not even Black Color, if you have 20/20 Vision God Bless you otherwise you will have Problems

The Shape of the Unit is Awkward, The Design is Awkward and the Protective Lid is very Annoying The Hard Cover made to Protect the Electronic Dictionary has two screws to fasten in the back of the Unit to keep it secure, even like that it gets on my way, so I fold the Lid under the Unit to control it. When the Unit is on and If I don't use it after 5 Minutes it turns itself Off, I wish it would stay on for good, till I'm done and ready, so I keep clicking the "On" Button located on the right side of the Unit every time to check on another word. It has 7 Books in One, you can read all about that on The Product Details.

The Automatic Shutoff can be set up under Settings from 1 to 5 Minutes, that is the Longest Time. The Franklin Electronic Dictionary also has many Games: Anagrams, Hangman, Jumble, World Builder, World Train, 1 Player Link Four, 2 Player Link Four, 1 Player Tic Tac Toe and 2 Player Tic Tac Toe, I don't Play any of them Specially in such Small Screen.

I purchased the Franklin MWD-1510 to replace an 11-year-old MWD-450 whose screen was breaking down (about 20% of the pixels no longer worked). Reading mostly non-fiction books I'll sometimes encounter words I've never seen before; this is less of an issue with fiction books. So having a small electronic dictionary nearby is welcome.

Two things attracted me to the MWD-1510 over other electronic dictionaries. One was its large screen measuring 3.25"x1.25". This is a 73% larger area than the screen of my older MWD-450. The '1510 also has more definitions than the MWD-450: 400,000 versus 274,000 for the '450 (and only 250,000 definitions for the Sharp electronic dictionary). And it has a biographical dictionary for looking up famous people and a geopraphical dictionary for nations, cities, lakes, rivers, and even famous waterfalls (including their heights!) Interestingly, Franklin forgot to include the nation 'Egypt' in the geographical dictionary. All other nations in the world are present including 'Chad' and even the island group 'Seychelles' (NE of Madagascar; pop. 68,598; 107 total sq. miles). But they forgot Egypt. The physical quality of the '1510 is very good and feels, looks like something Apple would make and the font can be adjusted to 3 different sizes. The protective lid is removable but I prefer to leave it on. One advantage the older '450 has over the new '1510, however, is that it gives more variations of word spellings. For example, if you type 'impossible' into the '450 it will list four variations (impossibleness, impossibility, impossibilities, and impossibly). But the '1510 lists only two variations (impossibility and impossibly).

I needed one desperately so I'm keeping it, but unfortunately it's very difficult for me to see. So if your eyesight is not
as good as it should be, you'd be better off ordering another type. It's great tho....it has games and all sorts of
word helps. The print is very, very tiny.

The only problem I find with this electronic dictionary is the need to tilt the case downward while holding it in the air in order to see the first row of words, usually the word that I'm defining. I also found the dictionary much more detailed than what I find with the Nook built in dictionary, although the Nook comes with Merriam-Webster's 11th Collegiate Dictionary. Still, much faster than looking up the entry in a hand held paper Dictionary, yet not as convenient as a built in e-reader Dictionary. Overall, I recommend that you buy this Dictionary, refurbished, for a good value.

American Heritage (Royal RP series) gives much more information.
No advantage over one I had.
Would not necessarily recommend Merriam-Webster's Advance.

I could not survive without this tool. I don't use the game functions, but I use the Dictionary and Thesaurus a great deal and have not been disippointed in the device.
