HASH(0x9e2a8ae8) out of 5 stars unwieldy. database lacks. Jan. 7 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Pros:
Acceptable dictionary service. (Quick, short definitions to a large number of everyday words)
Useful pronunciation service.
Cons:
Perceptible delay in appearance of definition after word has been typed in(though you get used to it)
SLOW word correction (if you type in a word/spelling not in the dictionary, the wait is excruciating while it comes up with alternatives. To be fair, this search can be canceled promptly if you typed in a wrong word by mistake)
Not quite portable. Dictionary could have been more comprehensive, used AAA batteries. Top heavy (literally), unwieldy in the hand due to 4 AAs.
Would have preferred more comprehensive definitions and lesser games. More comprehensive meaning better definitions and more etymologies. I would not agree with the term "Language Master" because of the perceived deficiencies in the number of words and length of definitions.
I would NOT call it a good reference either.
Compared to the the excellent free service at [...] and my own idea of a portable dictionary.
Keys go clackety clack - could have used softer keys.
I would not recommend this buy.
P.S.
Why don't we have more competition in the electronic dictionary sector?

HASH(0x9debccd8) out of 5 stars Nice product,..terrible customer service. Dec 18 2002
By a troubled Franklin customer - Published on Amazon.com
I have this particular product and like it very much. However, over the years I have purchased from Franklin many times and there is one thing about Franklin that is consistent and which I can't stand and that is their approach to customer service. Believe me, you don't want to have to deal with such terrible customer service. As each year goes by, I'm more and more amazed how a company with such poor customer service stays in business. Regardless of the merits of the product, it would be impossible for me to recommend dealing with Franklin.

HASH(0x9e338768) out of 5 stars Best Tool for Learning English Nov. 11 2002
By Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Excellent learning tool for students and people who want to improve their English or build up their vocabulary. The pronunciation is clear and I have been using it for more than 10 years. At work, I use the thesaurus to fine tune my documents and when I travel, I take it along as the word games get me hooked during the long flights. It is one of the best investments I have ever made. I also share it with my son who is in secondary school. Sometimes we argue over the pronunciation of certain words and the talking dictionary acts as arbitrator. Although the price has not gone down after it was launched, it is still worth every cent.

HASH(0x9df9ade0) out of 5 stars Good Ergonomics, Poor Screen Feb. 10 2004
By Mwaa - Published on Amazon.com
I've had mine for at least 5 years. I'd say that it was useful, but later on I encountered some LCD problems. It is not well protected by a lid so it caused the digital feautures to blur or disappear.
If its something that you'd like to put in one place, then I'd suggest you buy this. If you have plans to bringing it everywhere, then I'd suggest one with a protection lid.

HASH(0x9f0a5b1c) out of 5 stars Very happy with my purchase Dec 30 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The pronunciation of the words is very clear. Lots of definitions - I have only found one or two words so far that the dictionary does not have. The definitions can be a little short though. Contains lots of extra features like a phonics key that says each part of the word. Also, includes games, which are fun and a stored customized word list. Overall, very happy. I have wanted to improve my vocabulary and spelling which is why I made this purchase.
