Replaced with Seiko ER8100 and the difference is as following:
1. Computer built-in (also Oxford) and Sharp PW-E300
concise | kənˈsʌɪs |
giving a lot of information clearly and in a few words; brief but comprehensive: a concise account of the country's history.
late 16th century: from French concis or Latin concisus, past participle of concidere ‘cut up, cut down’, from con- ‘completely’ + caedere ‘to cut’.
2. Seiko ER8100:
giving a lot of information clearly and in few words;
C16 (earlier (ME) as concision) from Fr. concis or L. concisus, best part. of concidere 'cut up, cut down'.
The Seiko ER8100 has a word missing in the definition. It should be "in a few words" instead of "in few words". There's no phonetic aid (neither did the Sharp PW-E300 though). PW-E300 has a few functions that neither computer built-in dictionary has or Seiko ER8100 has. Sharp PW-E300 has superjump, note, history, and quickview functions. The note function is particularly useful when used to compare very similar words and their usage.
And Seiko 8100 doesn't have the currency exchange function.
I don't know whether the malfunction of the dict definition is a result of this:
"2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. [...]complies with [whatever Canadian law]."
I have no idea what those compliances mean. This line was seen on the fine print on the back of the device. It seems rather unusual as digital devices previously bought never had this type of warning printed.
Featuring bits of concise Britannica that's definitely a bonus though my main goal was to get a decent Oxford Dictionary.

The Seiko doesn't have as much as his Sharp did but he uses it several times daily. It serves it's purpose and just hope it lasts the 10 years his Sharp did.
This button should have been made stronger since it used a lot. In this price range I expected a better quality product.
I can not recommend this Seiko product. I would not buy this unit again. You should seriously consider a different dictionary since 6 months is too short a time for failure.
