Having said all that, if I put cost and value considerations aside, or if we assume that the buyer has paid no more than what he or she considers fair for what he or she gets, I think this is a nice looking and practical Scrabble set. I personally don't enjoy playing Scrabble on boards that don't have raised ridges to hold the letters in place. The travel board is nice, but I have fat fingers and I find placing and removing tiles from the travel board less than an ideal experience. I have never seen Hasbro's Premiere Wood Edition, but the MSRP is nearly a hundred dollars, and that's more than I would like to pay for a Scrabble set with a rotating board. Thirty and under, I don't mind. It seems that no retailers at present have the Deluxe edition, which has a rotating board and a MSRP of about thirty, that they are willing to sell for less than seventy (the present price range for Amazon Marketplace Sellers is from about seventy to one hundred and eighty!).
I think the Onyx Edition would make a nice gift, but the gift giver should know going in that the look of this edition is faux luxury as opposed to luxury (like the difference between an inexpensively made pen styled to resemble a Mont Blanc and a Mont Blanc). Unlike at least one other reviewer, I don't see a problem with the fact that the board is some kind of paper that is glued onto the surface within the frame (and below the raised ridged grid). The board on the set I received is even (someone reported that the board they received was not even), and it looks like it should last for years, barring spills and abuse. The tiles that came with the set I received are wooden, as descriptions for the Scrabble Onyx Edition say they are, stained or painted black with silver letters. Some of the letters are imperfectly printed on the tiles - not to the point that they are difficult to read, but to the point that I say, what the heck is Hasbro trying to sell for forty five bucks? My guess is that Scrabble Onyx Edition has been discontinued (according to the Hasbro site one can no longer order replacement tiles to replace the exact type of tiles that come with Scrabble Onyx, though they do offer other tiles that they say fit the ridged board).
As other reviewers have noted, this edition comes in a large box (17" X 17" X 3" on my tape measure), so you need space to store it (under a bed would work), and it's not nearly as portable as the travel and Diamond Anniversary editions.
it is lovely to play with and is constructed very well with wood numbers and racks. The silver stamping is easy to read (only the blanks are easy to miss since they are black on black...but handy when you realize you have them.)
DO NOT SPEND THE MONEY ON THIS - not worth the extra $50.
