Previously, I had bought the bigger BHS, which. comes with large font, but my backpack filled up rapidly and got heavier; Having to carry many books, including Kelley's large Biblical Hebrew Grammar, I needed a smaller BHS with a decent size, readable font, which I could easily carry and read on the go. This was it.
The footnotes are small but I can still read them. The format is clean and clear. I am trully satisfied.
It is definitely the text of choice for scholars. It's scholarly content should not detract from student's or a lay reader's experience. The size of the book is standard for text critical editions like Aland's New Testament, LXX, Vulgata or others. Some folks like large fonts for their reading, but that should not be a problem either. BHS has pretty decent size font, except of course for masora parva and the critical apparatus where the fonts are pretty small. But the text itself is pretty reasonable size and readable. I personally rarely read from the book itself, but copy the passages I want to study (either 1:1 or sometimes enlarged) and then take notes on the copied pages. So I would recommend people who need large fonts to do the same. But I would definitely recommend this edition of the Hebrew Bible to anyone. It's a must.
Aside from that last draw back, this edition of the Hebrew Bible is a must have for scholars and is an excellent resource for Hebraic studies.
