1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy This Product
The first one didn't work from the start and I returned it to Amazon.Com. The second one drained the batteries in a matter of days. I returned that one...The replacement had the same problems. The fourth one worked a little better. I kept replacing the batteries every month or two. I just replaced all three batteries and it doesn't work at all. It is not worth all the hassle. The product has some serious design flaws. It should be taken off the market until the problems are corrected.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor Excuse
In general the definitions are better from Italian to English. The unit had the potential for being terrific. I have used a Casio Boss for years, with very few battery replacements. The Ectaco goes dead before you can use it. The games could really help with vocabulary, but the words used are usless. Had very little success in dealing with the company - most of them seem to be native Russian speakers and communicating was difficult. In the end I have a dead, worthless piece of electronics.

1-0 out of 5 stars Junk
The product didn't work it all... which I discovered after about 30 minutes of trying to get the batteries in place. I'm sending it back.

1-0 out of 5 stars Battery problem etc
I have the battery probelm, too. I am going to try scotch tape now. Actually this is my second one, as the first one didn't work at all from the begining. I think... should stop selling the products from Ectaco. Another thing is that the reaction of key bourd is very slow. Overall, I feel like the technology of this company is about 40 yrs behind. It's pity that franklin or seiko don't have italian dictionary with decent amount of vocaburary.

As for the content, I wish it had the idiom search for Italian. This seems to be made for the italians learning english basically.

2-0 out of 5 stars I can not get it to work
I bought this translator a week ago. It work for one week. One day I tried to turn it on and I couldn't. I changed batteries and I also but a scotch tape on the batteries to prevent them from touching the metal cover. Again I saw no results. The only thing I hear a long beep but I cannot see anything. Contrast does not help either. It is a pity because this translator is very good. I do not want to return it but it seems that I have no choice. I hope someone can give me a tip how to solve this problem soon. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars It speaks in English only
I researched this machine, but ultimately didn't buy it because I noticed (and confirmed with the manufacturer) that this $449.00 talking translator talks English only. I think an American or any English-speaking purchaser would expect the machine to speak the foreign language he was interested in (French, Italian, etc.) not only the language he already knows how to pronounce. This machine was designed for Europeans neading a talking feature to help them pronounce English, not the other way around. It is not bilingual both directions. If it doesn't help an English speaker pronounce the European languages, then the talking feature is useless, and the enormous cost and large size of this machine cannot be justified. This is Ectaco's current flagship translator, but it was not designed with English speakers in mind, and Amazon's customers should notice that deficiency before they buy. The limitation on the talking feature is probably counter-intuitive to an English speaking purchaser, and it might go unnoticed if not specifically pointed out before the purchase is made.

1-0 out of 5 stars Ectaco Dictionaries Warranty
Until now, we were a Gold Dealer for Ectaco Dictionaries but due to Ectaco's failure to honour their Warranty, we no longer recommend them to our customers.
Ectaco "Service" Department failed to respond to our request for Service and when we finally got an email back from the Sales Department, trying to sell an upgrade, they told us that the warranty had expired as we had not delivered the Dictionary to them, from New Zealand, prior to the warranty expiring.
This is completely unsatisfactory and if it wasn't for the distances involved, we would take them to the New Zealand Small Claims Court.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very useful partner
I like this translator very much. It has all the features that I need to get along in foreign countries. It has a speaker for pronunciation (english only) and full bi-directional translation (Garza Garcia must have misinterpreted the manual). It come with variuous other features such as world time, notes, recorder, typical phrases etc.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not happy with this device
Although the documentation states that it is possible to translate from english to many languages and viceversa, it is not possible to type a non english word in order to be translated into the english language. This device requires first to seek a word in english and to translate it into a given foreign language and then to select a word from the list of words from the selected foreign language.

If the owner is traveling to other countries, it would be very hard to translate words from foreign languages into the english language following this procedure.

5-0 out of 5 stars EE586HT
I saw the EE586HT listed on Amazon.com and decided to take some of my time to write this message for people who would be interested in buying this AMAZING device. I paid $400.00 in a local retail store and can tell you -- it worth every peny I spent. If you are a constant traveler, student or a business man you sure do need this machine. I love it. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Years of practical service
There is one negative review commenting on bad buttons/ poor manufacture. This is completely counter to our family's experience. My wife, her mother and sister all have one of these translators and find them to be rugged and problem free. My wife has had hers for what must be 3 years now.

95% of my wife's usage is single word translations and seldom uses full sentence or pronunciation features. Although she is quite fluent, she still uses it often when she comes across odd words in some books, or needs an equivalent of a technical or other very precise term she only knows in Russian. Her mother and sister are less fluent and use sentence translation and pronunciation much more often. Oddly, the men hardly ever use the translator. No one uses the other organizer features on the unit. We favor this unit rather than the 486 model due to its larger dictionary. A side benefit is that looks much nicer with its leather like case and attractive silver styling. The pronunciation is useful for beginning to intermediate speakers, because it gives you an idea of the kind of sound you should try to make. However, it has the typical computer robotic sound to it- do not expect anything like a recording of actual human speakers. It turns out this robotic accent is not important- the big problems I've found for Russians first speaking English would be solved if they listenned to this unit pronouncing the word for them.

Also do not have super high expectations for the sentence translator. It is not a fault of Ectaco- Machine translation is a very hard problem and no one has a translator you can trust completely. The translator is very handy and can be used to give someone some hints about what you are trying to communicate. But don't expect to get it right more than 70% of the time. Some checks you can do to verify the translation is to try translating the english words back into russian and see if most of the meanings are the one you intended. If the word has too many different or possibly disasterous meanings, obviously it might be a good idea to substitute a russian synonym to get an english word translation with less chance of creating confusion. Obviously this is a lot of work, and it is probably unnecessary to go to this much trouble in typical situations. Just to give you an idea, my mother in law regularly went into the city to go shopping and at that time knew only a few english phrases. Armed with this translator (and a cell phone for emergencies)- she found it easy to complete all her tasks. She only had to call us once to explain some complicated detail to a salesperson.

We bought the accessories for this (that allow you to hook to a computer) but I'd suggest that you hold off and buy them only if you really think you would use them. We tried them but never got much value from them.

We strongly suggest using NIMH (nickel metal hydride) rechargeable batteries. This will save you huge amounts of money if you use the translator a lot. Radio shack has good quality ones. We have tried other generic brands, but they most failed after several charges.

Hope these notes help.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very useful and fun
I found this dictionary very useful to learn English words. I often play in different word games on it to enlarge my vocabulary. What I really adore about this dictionary is the touch-sensitive display, it's fun to send emails and do everything with a small stylus!
I have specially chosen this dictionary to have the TOEFL listening comprehension and all the other tests as well as grammar reference.
The dialogues for every day situations have often helped me when I had no idea how to say something in English.
My dictionary translates all the words and even common phrases and idioms. And the most important for me is that it not only pronounces clearly everything, but records my pronunciation, so I can always compare them and speak better. English pronunciation is so different from the Russian one ...
Thanks to this dictionary, I speak English much better now. :)

4-0 out of 5 stars It's a legend in both features and price!
I bought this product two weeks ago, my product is Arabic -English dictionary. It's a legend electronic dictionary with English-Arabic, Arabic-English, English-English dictionaries and Arabic & English speller. Data base of vocublary, dialog, grammer, proverbs, abbreviation, travel & country information, cities, languages, airports, airlines, temperature, telephone id's. Organizer with business tel., personal tel., memo, schedule, user dictionary, calender(Gregory & Higri), local & world time, anniversity and voice memo. Calculations with simple & scientific calculator, loan calculator, account mangement, currency conversion, metric conversion. Games of word, brick, title 5 & master mind game. Communication with pc link, fax machine built in, email(send & recieve). All these features and it's english talking with male true voice and it has back light touch screen and the its memory is 2MB. These features are the shiny side of this product where the other side appear in its exaggerated price and its short life of the best batteries in this product.

4-0 out of 5 stars ER586HT
Perfect tool, great features and fulfilling vocabulary. But the manual needs to be written in a simpler manner. Too many technical terms that are not easy to understand for people who are not familiar with these terms. I think it should be more so-to-speak "housewife friendly". -- I give it four stars.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor quality and terrible support
I bought ER586HT English/Russian from Ectaco and it was inoperable out of the box. Some buttons did not work at all. The store only had 7 days return policy so I had to bring it to the Ectaco store in Queens, NY. I was told they would call me within 2 weeks. It took me 5 weeks and multiple calls to get a replacement which... had the same problem. Now it has been 3 weeks again, no word from Ectaco.

Summary: good product idea, very poor implementation, absolutely the worst warranty and customer service I have ever seen. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars not well built
Craptastic!
The first one I received was DOA.
The second one died after using it for only a few hours. I tried the reset feature repeatedly - no luck. Replaced the batteries - no good.
The software isn't too bad. It's 4 million word vocabulary doesn't seem to include conjugated verbs.

2-0 out of 5 stars What 5 other languages does it translate????
How can I buy a translator if I do not know all of the languages they do. If I want more than what is advertised how can I tell this product is what I want without knowing all languages????

5-0 out of 5 stars Calculator - 10 languages Travel translator
First of all I have never thought such a small and light device could INSTANTLY translate into 10 languages! I have traveled all over Europe (15 countries) with it. I often found very useful the common travel phrases and words in different languages. If I had taken all the necessary usual dictionaries with me, I would have had to pay for overweight ;) It is much more comfortable than traditional phrase-books - no pages to turn.
And I am really satisfied with it - for such a low price - it is really worth it.

The product was dead on arrival -- it doesn't seem to be built very well, so I returned it and bought Ectaco's dictionaries for the Palm platform. They work very well although they do take up quite a bit of memory.

1-0 out of 5 stars Rotten customer service and deceitful return policy
The product may be good but don't try to get any kind of service from Ectaco if you need to return the item.

Ectaco states they will only take returns if you call for a return authorization number BEFORE shipping the item back. However, you really get a run around trying to get the number. After being transferred repeatedly, I was informed the ONE AND ONLY employee, Boris, who could give out the return authorization number was "on vacation" and instructed to leave a voice mail which would be promptly answered BEFORE the return deadline. Needless to say, my voice mail was never returned and I am stuck with a translator my daughter didn't like. In addition, they had the temerity to blame ME for not getting the return authorization by the deadline and tried claiming that every single employee I spoke with could have and would have gladly given me the authorization number if I had bothered to ask for it!!! Well I did! Why else was I on the phone first thing the day after Christmas? I was trying to follow their return policy. If you really want this product buy it used from someone else on-line and save yourself the headache of dealing with Ectaco.

4-0 out of 5 stars invaluable, dependable, durable tool
All in all it has been an invaluable, dependable, durable tool and I wouldn't want to do without it. THE PROS: compact, flat, with protective lid, purse or pocket size. Back lit display, auto shut off energy saving feature. Large vocabulary, separates verbs, adverbs, adjectives and nouns in same spelling words. The computer tries to anticipate the word you are searching for with a simultaneous display as you enter the word. Audio pronunciation feature is invaluable. Has slang words and some phrases, vulgarities and idioms but is incomplete. Scroll feature for next word in dictionary is very useful. Some words have 3 or 4 phrase use examples one can scroll through from the point of original word entry. Quick switching from English to Spanish or Spanish to English for cross referencing for definition accuracy. CONS: Only lists translated words, not actual definition descriptions. The English translations seems to be half British and half American. A very few translations make no sense at all when cross-referenced for this reason. Beeps with every key entry which eats batteries and is distracting in quiet public areas, no "silent mode" option. The computer anticipation of spelling overrides receiving subsequent entries of letters until computer anticipation display has searched its data base and has "caught up" with you. This causes missed letters and having to erase and reenter letters. Uses 3 "AA" batteries and really eats them, I've gone throught 5 or 6 sets in 5 months. There is an a/c adapter available for about $15.

3-0 out of 5 stars More for Spanish to English
It is a nice dictionary but, it is mostly for Spanish to English. For instance, the irregular verbs are English irregular verbs not Spanish irregular verbs. It also has a nice testing program, but it is for English only. The voice is of course mechanical, but it is still nice in that it will try to pronounce anything that you put input into it. ...
