A drawback for non-Korean speakers is that the Korean is only spelled in Hangul, not phonetically, but for my purposes of looking up individual words from written documents and figuring out what they mean, it's less important. For a later edition I would suggest that phonetics for the Korean words be included.
it also is a big book - you won't want to tote this thing around any more than you have to. For desk-based work it's fine, and the binding allows the dictionary to stay open without you having to force it down. It comes in a cardboard "box" which allows the book to sit in a bookshelf (which otherwise it couldn't, as the binding and cover is pretty soft and the weight would cause it to flop down).
I like it very much, but I ended up buying the iPad App for the abridged Korean-English-Korean dictionary by the same company. Of course, I would not have bought the app without first having bought the leather-bound version and seeing the quality of the content. I use the iPad app a lot more, because it is more portable and it covers translations in both directions. I think if I bought the iPad app first, I would not have bought the leather-bound book, since the app meet almost all of my needs, it is cheaper, and more portable. Perhaps I will one day run into a word I cannot find on the app, and then I will turn to the leather-bound book for enlightenment. :-D
