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.Read more ›
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 geographical dictionary for nations, cities, lakes, rivers, 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 not 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). On the other hand, the '1510 gives more definitions to words, has more definitions overall, includes phonetic spellings, and has geographical and biographical dictionaries to boot.Read more ›
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.
When I got it and used it, I found the light of the panel is so dark...
the level of words is low....
so I woudn't like to recommend my friends...

I purchased one of these November 9 2015 for my husband. He never used it. The other day (October 21 2016), I walked by where he keeps it and decided to turn it on. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Joyce Doerfler
Less than a year after limited use the batteries needed replacing. Replaced them and to no avail.

Hubby likes it but i hear a constant complaint that it is dark and hard to read. I see no reason for not having a screen that lights up. Pricey enough.Published 4 months ago by E. de Mello
