I believe that because it doesn't have all of the feminist egalitarian changes, (even though the Conservative Movement's position is for a more egalitarian Siddur), it is far superior to the second edition, in that it keeps the original text of the prayers.
On the downside, it is a fairly heavy book to hold and the prayers sometimes run into each other, making it a little more difficult for the novice to navigate.
Overall it is a great improvement (translation wise) over the Silverman Siddur (although I miss the layout of the prayers in Silverman).
I would recommend this siddur to all.
It would be kind of a lot to handle if you had bad arthritis in your wrists or your arms were very weak. I do have a touch of arthritis but not enough to bother me when holding this book.
I wish the 95 "gender-sensitive" edition had the weekday services, as that is what I primarily need, but the 85 is quite suitable. I like it better than the Artscroll Ashkenaz siddur I had been using.
Other siddurs I have compared it to, like the newer 'slim siddur' (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0916219305/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_2), or the My Siddur (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1492166448/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) have most, but not all of the prayers here. I'm sorry that I can't do a detailed comparison... I'm not Jewish :(

A siddur that contains prayers for both weekdays and Shabbat is just what I wanted.Published 13 months ago by R. Merchant
One of the prayer books used in the Conservative movement. English translation is awkward and is not a good "learning" tool.Published 20 months ago by SouthernTransplant
My favorite book. I've worn out a couple copies.
Does anyone know if there is a computerized version available?
It wasn't the edition that I wanted. Have no use for it. Wasted my money. I needed 1998 copyright. My friend bought thru amazon the right edition and bought me one too. Read morePublished on March 18, 2014 by Luz Geduld
Bigger print than Artscroll but lacks the interesting prophetic and oral traditions. It is much easier to follow than Artscroll so you may want both.Published on March 14, 2014 by R. C.
arrived on time and the quality is great. I think I bought used and it doesn't even look like it has been used.Published on September 10, 2013 by Melissa AW
It is the prayer used at my Conservative Synagogue. It is in very good condition and has met my expectations.Published on April 3, 2013 by Stephen Horblitt
