5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Item and Very Quick Handy Reference
I have owned Franklin's KJV Electronic Bible for years and am searching for one for my minister brother. When we're referencing scriptures on the phone, while he's talking, within seconds I've located where it's found with my electronic Bible. THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO REPLACE IT! I LOVE IT'S USEFULNESS! Also, when I don't feel like "wagging" a larger one to church, this one fits right into my purse.
Thank You FRANKLIN!

The pocket bible I purchased was fantastic. I wish it was around when I was younger. I would recommend this bible to everyone. And it is very reasonably priced. I love it!-I love it! I love it. Ronnie Bailey

4-0 out of 5 stars so close...
I bought mine as a reference for times when I don't have access to the internet (dictionary.com is a lifesaver), like when I'm on the plane or train or reading in bed and really don't feel like getting up.

The screen is a little annoying but not off-putting. The lack of pronunciation was mind boggling to me. The first time I used mine I kept scrolling up and down, thinking that I'd missed it somewhere. But at least the words are broken down into syllables, which gives me a good idea of how the word should be said.

But the thing that's driving me crazy is that half of the time I go to look up a word it's not in there. I'm thinking of getting the 'advanced dictionary and thesaurus' bookcard--though I don't think Amazon sells them-- and hopefully that will fix the problem. Kinda annoying that I'd have to pay another [money] just to get it to do what I bought it for. On the other hand, maybe I should have known better since I have the same problem with old-fashioned paper and glue collegiate dictionaries.

Otherwise it's great. It's lightweight, turns on instantly, even looks kinda cute. A few tweaks and the next model could be brilliant.

5-0 out of 5 stars A venerable database of the English language
Being a student, I have always found the need for quick access to lexicon at any given time. This portable dictionary has since allowed me to obtain closure for that conundrum. Though, it should be noted, however, that this is actually the second in line of Franklin handhelds that I've purchased, as the first (an early model Bookman) was accidentally sat upon and thus had its ink seeping all over the place. The MWD-1450 is a huge improvement over its predecessors, combining both a large database of entries and a crisper screen. The design has also been streamlined and as a result appears much more "chic". Additional improvements include added word games, built-in organizer and clock, random entry (learn-a-word) function, and SAT word exercises. Minor quibbles concerning this unit include the vertical lines running through the LCD (due to touch-screen feature), and a somewhat unresponsive keyboard. Other than that, it's an aspiring English freak's dream come to fruition.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Quite What I Was Looking For, But Still Functional
Let me start off by saying that I have owned both the Franklin SCD-1870 and the MWD-1450. After using the 1450 for about a week, I returned it to the store where I purchased it.

I will present this review as a comparison between the Franklin SCD-1870 and the MWD-1450.

Content:
The winner is the 1870. You know that the 1870 has a larger database by the specifications, but it really becomes apparent when you use the device. With the 1450, many words are available for lookup, but it only tells you the part of speech. To find the definition, you have to access the thesaurus for a brief definition with synonyms. So far, the 1870 has contained every definition that I have asked from it, with the exception of some modified words. For example, if you search for 'ardently,' it will only return that it is an adverb. If you want the definition, you have to enter the root, or 'ardent.'

Others have mentioned the 1450's lack of phonetic spellings, which I did find to be a disappointment. The 1870 also lacks the printed phonetics, but makes up for it with the speaking ability. On the topic of speaking, the 1870 does pretty well. It is a little quite, but I think that is a good thing. I don't have to worry about accidentally speaking a word too loudly in the office. The synthesized voice is a little hard to follow while reading the definitions due to an unnatural flow. Some words are spoken with no space between them, while others leave a ½ second between words.

The 1870 has a lot more to offer past the dictionary and thesaurus capabilities, most of which I don't have much use for. It has a menu for "Signs, Symbols and Tables" that lists lots of... well, signs, symbols and tables. The content varies from the astronomical symbols used to label the planets on a sky chart, to the start-dates of the Jewish calendar, to the books of the Bible, to the elements of the Periodic Table. Could be useful to some, but I don't find myself needing to access that information very much.

Both have some word games, with the 1870 having at least twice as many as the 1450. They both use cheesy graphics for transitions (winning or losing a game) that you can easily turn off. Due to the poor screen of the 1450 (see below) I did not spend much time on the games. The 1870's games are entertaining. One feature that I miss from the 1450 is a "Word Learning" option. It was sort-of like a "word of the day," except it would give you a new word every time you powered up (I guess you could call it "word of the session").

I will not comment on the organizer capabilities of each device because it is something that I personally have no use for. I can imagine, however, that this feature would have been helpful while I was a high school student (10 years ago!).

Screen:
With the number of electronic devices incorporating LCD's today, the quality to cost ratio is usually extremely high. Not so, however, with the 1450. The screen is MISERABLE. Aside from the inconvenient screen size, the quality simply sucks. You have to have absolutely perfect lighting to read the screen with ease; lighting that I do not have in my office or next to my bed at home. It was my sole reason for returning the 1450.

The 1870 on the other hand, has a screen that is clear, legible, and a pleasure to read, and is much larger and more efficient at providing information -that's what I expect.

Ergonomics:
I initially preferred the horizontal layout of the 1450, but have grown to favor the vertical design of the 1870. The vertical arrangement makes it natural to hold in one had while navigating the system. The 1450's keyboard is easier to use since the buttons are larger and spaced further apart. However, the buttons seem like the printing will wear off very quickly. On the 1870, the buttons manageable.

Construction:
Here, I would have to favor the 1450 for its cover. It is hard and opens and snaps shut with ease. I would have no worries dropping it into my pocket and forgetting that it was there. The 1870 has a semi-soft cover that just flips around from the front to the back. It is convenient, but it doesn't protect the screen and buttons as well and the attachment feature seems rather flimsy.

The 1450 tries to be high-tech with 'touch-screen technology.' It is a waste. You can clearly see the wiring lines on the screen that make it function, and you end up with lots of fingerprints and smudges at the bottom of the already crowded screen. The 1870 uses much more robust dedicated buttons below the screen to access the menu items.

For use on a desk, I prefer the 1870. The 1450 was nice... until you start typing. While pressing the letters to the outside, the unit rocks side-to-side, which gets annoying. The 1870 can lay nice and flat, and can easily be propped up for easy viewing as seen in all of the advertising photos. In this position, it is not practical to enter or scroll through information.

Recommendation:
Both units provide sufficient value to the user. The MWD-1450 would be more suited for a younger user, perhaps elementary students up to high school. The hard cover makes it that much more rugged and able to withstand the abuse of a backpack. Also, children are less demanding on quality and ease of use and are less likely to complain about the poor screen. From high school on up, the SCD-1870 is the definite winner. It has a far greater ease of use, many more functions, and a larger content that is demanded at a higher level.

Overall, the 1450 is OK and the 1870 is GREAT. Enjoy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Writing Companion
I have purchased two separate Franklin Bookman Dictionary Thesaurus & Game electronics over the last 7 years and have been most pleased. The amount of writing I do enables me to be sufficiently supported by means of this electronic device. I have found it to be more current in dictionary/thesaurus word capabilities than Microsoft software offers and quite honestly, it goes everywhere I do... What I am currently seeking to find out though, is whether or not there is a yearly or bi-yearly software update with respect to the 2002 version. If this can be answered please acknowledge...

3-0 out of 5 stars great tool!
I bought the MWD-1450 after accidentally breaking the screen on my Franlkin Pagemark dictionary which I had for only 2 months. This one has basically the same set-up as the previous. The Upside: It is lightweight and portable, and you can add words to a personalized word list. Downside: no pronunication (pro-nun-si-ay-sh'n) key, screen doesn't have a led light, and word list can only hold 40 words. Overall, this is a good buy. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars great for young teens
My 11-year-old son got this as a gift and uses it constantly. He looks up words he's not familiar with and plays the word games to increase his vocabulary. We even play together sometimes! I plan to buy some for gifts.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I thought this was something I would use and enjoy. After just a few uses I can't be bothered with it. Most of the words I tried to looked up were not there. It may be of use to a gradeschooler, but anyone with a higher reading level would get nothing but a bookmark and I would rather use a paperclip.

1-0 out of 5 stars Franklin PageMark
This was a very disappointing product. I think it is a great idea - and bought 3 of them to give as Christmas presents. I'm returning 2 because it is useless. The dictionary is way too limited. During my first day of use, I looked up seven words and three were not in the dictionary. All three are readily available in my regular dictionary. All of the resources spent on games, address book, etc. would have been better spent on improving the dictionary. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars This is a kid...13...7th grade
Hey sup. I got this thing like...today, and it works...BADLY

this is the worst...and the WORST
at 20 bux, its still a rip, i put "CABINET" and its like...CORRECTING...no corrections found...online is much better
it never shows the masculine or feminine form, and it doesnt work in other forms...ex. hacer in the yo form is hago

its a piece of...
yea, fill it in, heh

franklin is also suppose to be a pretty good brand with great electronic dictionaries, this is by far the worst translator EVER
as that guy said. A TOY

A TOY TOY TOY

all those other features are worthless...TIME?!?! who uses a dictionary for the TIME...PHONE NUMBERS?!?!?!? whats the use, thats y we have phonebooks and PDAs and stuff...calculator...thats ok i guess...

~!WORST PRODUCT EVERR!~

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't be fooled, this is a toy.
Sure it's only $20 or so, but it really isn't usable for any serious student of Spanish. For one thing, it doesn't give genders for the nouns. It won't give you a definition but hands you a phrase. However, it does tell time and store phone numbers and play games. I don't have any idea why they would call this toy a translator.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best for the money
Ok, this one does have a bit of a learning curve, and you MUST read the instructions! However, once you have mastered how to use it, this one is fantastic if you really want to learn the language. It has every verb conjugation in it, with the english translation. So no longer do you have to figure out "what does past imperfect mean?" but rather it gives you the actual english/spanish translation. For example, enter "study" (after selecting english-->spanish of course) and click "inflections". You can scroll down to see the present imperfect tense is:
"I have studied" and hit ENTER to see the spanish translation as "yo he estudiado". Try THAT with your "501 Spanish Verbs" book, that assumes you know what preterite and conditional tenses actually are! :-)

If you want to study the language and conjugate verbs, for less than $... you can't go wrong. But do read the manual!

1-0 out of 5 stars Save your money
I'd love to know how they figure in excess of 500,000 translations, Virtually every effort to translate a word came up "Correcting" and after a considerable time offered unrelated suggestions. Possibly of some use to absolute beginners, however at any level above this if you don't know the translation, then almost certainly this thing won't either.

1-0 out of 5 stars NOT VERY HELPFUL
As a beginning Spanish student, I bought this little gadget because it boasted having a wealth of vocabulary and phrases.
I am disappointed with this product in several ways. First,
the size and design: it's very small which is fine, but the designers did two bad things, it's very hard to see the display
in any lighting, and the button(s) you need to use the most are
so small it's ridiculous. Second: The phrases are all preset, into categories. Forget about entering a phrase of your own. Many of the preset phrases are ridiculous, for instance, What is
your e-mail address? Why would a non-spanish speaking person
need that??? If you want to know where you can find a chinese
restaurant, you will need to look up each word individually, and then find out that "chinese" isn't in the database. So, have a
pencil and paper ready to construct your own clumsy sentences.

I gave it one star because it's better than having nothing. If
you were going to dash to Mexico for the weekend, this would get
you through. It's not user intuitive so expect to have to read
the booklet to find out how to capitalize a letter, as well as
using any/all of the functions. It's complicated, it's limited,
it's difficult to navigate. On the upside - you'll know what
time it is! There's a name & phone number database - it would
be a lot nicer to just be able to take a note - like what street
your hotel is on - or write down frequently used expressions of
your own instead of having to look up "What is the special
today?" every night at dinner. But, if your wife is pregnant,
goes into labor and you're panicking - this little gizmo will
come to your rescue. It's got that covered. A pocket dictionary
would be faster and more helpful. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars its ok
I have had the franklin dictionary for 3 years and its still running. it has been running on the same battery. The only thing that i hate about it is that its slow when it searches for the word. The good things are that u can put in personal information and it can spell check your search.It gives you short and understanble definitions for your search. Also the calculator it has, is easy to use.

The Franklin Dictionary is frankly a piece of junk! My daughter received this item as a gift for Christmas and four months later, not working, even with new batteries.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Office Accessory!
I really enjoy this product; it's perfect for mis-spellings, etc...

1-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money spent.
I purchased the Franklin MWD-450 because my old Franklin (jumble & crossword assistant) was stolen. I was told by Long Drugs that this Franklin MWD-450 was better than my old model. WRONG. It was worse than the old model. There isn't any jumble in the model. One of my old STAR crossword puzzles on my old model aided me on 87 words. The MWD-450 came up with only 33 words. This model maybe good on small words but overall I would rate this model much less than ONE star. I would suggest all buyers purchase a different model from another company that is made in America, not CHINA.

2-0 out of 5 stars Franklin MWD-450 and MWD-1440 electronic dictionaries
Review of Franklin/Merriam-Webster's MWD-450 and MWD-1440 electronic dictionaries

1. Lookups are slow on the MWD-450 (4-8 seconds is typical); response times are much better on the MWD-1440.

2. Definitions are shorter and simpler (often over simplified) on the MWD-450. The MWD-450 is probably better for a younger child (under 12), while the MWD-1440 should be better for teenagers.

3. The MWD-450 is missing many literary words and also some words that are important for understanding current events (e.g., "anti-Semitism" and "globalism"). The MWD-1440's dictionary, which is somewhat larger, contains "anti-Semitism" but not "globalism".

4. Displays on the two models have the same physical size, but the MWD-1440 displays more lines (5 lines instead of 3) using smaller and somewhat harder-to-read text.

5. Related word forms are not always shown. Here are two examples:

(A) If one looks up the word "naive", the noun form is shown as "naiveness". "Naivete", which is preferrable to "naiveness", is not listed as an alternative noun form. (One can, however, look up "naivete" separately).

(B) The MWD-450 recognizes "auspices" as a plural noun, but does not recognize the singular form "auspice".

6. The MWD-1440 has a slightly better keyboard; keys are squishy and badly shaped on the MWD-450.

7. Given that the MWD-1440 is aimed at college students, the calculator mode should include a more complete set of calculator functions. In particular, x^y (exponentiation), base-10 and base-e logarithms, and the sine and cosine functions should be provided.

8. On both models, the calculator mode would be easier to use if there were parentheses.

9. "Connect 4", which was one of the more interesting games on the MWD-400, is not available on the newer MWD-450 and MWD-1440. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars simple words missing
The first word I typed in to translate was "cat". Hmmm... it's not in the dictionary. That about says it all.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not recommended
The unit took about a month to be delivered from Seiko. After using it for several months I have found that it does not even have common words and phrases. It would be of no help to try to use it in a Spanish speaking country.

2-0 out of 5 stars Missing alot of words
Disappointed with the lack of words. Every 3rd or 4th word I looked up was not in the dictionary.

3-0 out of 5 stars light & cheap
This translator is light and small. The display is only 2 lines, but that's enough. When you enter a word it let's you choose the part of speech & lists several meanings without any explanations. You can search in the phrases also. For the nouns you can check the plural form, for the verbs you can change the tense & the person + the negative & the question forms. The vocabulary, as you can expect for this price, is limited. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Carry up to 6,000 memos, to-do tasks, names, addresses, and more in a PDA the size of a credit card. Enter data through six front-mounted keys or synchronize data with your desktop PC.

The Rex connects to your PC directly by inserting it into a Type II PC-card slot or through an optional docking station (not included) via the PC's serial port. The TrueSync CD-ROM provides software to manage tasks on your PC and synchronize them with the Rex.

Setting up the Rex itself is easy--just insert the batteries and follow the Rex's setup wizard. You navigate through the Rex's six organizer applications with six front-mounted push buttons. The applications are Calendar, Contacts, Memos, To Do, Time Zones (dual-clock alarm), and Preferences.

You also use the front-mounted buttons to "type" names, phone numbers, and appointments by selecting individual letters and numbers from a list. Entering data in this manner through the Rex's six keys is time-consuming and tedious; you'll want to use your PC for data entry and then synchronize whenever possible. However, the menu-driven user interface is reasonably intuitive, and the printed documentation is easy to follow.

If small size is the most important feature you're looking for in a PDA, then the Rex Pro 5 is a great choice.

Pros:

  • Amazingly small
  • Data entry through built-in buttons or through a partner PC
  • Connects to a PC through a Type II PC slot

Cons:

  • No backlight
  • Using keys for data entry is tedious
  • Docking station not included

5-0 out of 5 stars Ask yourself, what do you want to do?
Why haul around a Palm or Windows CE device when you only want to check your calendar and look up phone numbers? The Rex Pro fits in a shirt pocket, syncs well with the calendar provided in the software (TrueSync Desktop) and with anything else you want to link to, like Yahoo calendar. Granted, the entry of new data is a bit cumbersome, but you can do most of this on the desktop or notebook calendar. Now that the device syncs both ways, I find it invaluable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exceptional product
I looked extensively at Palm PDA's, etc. before choosing the Rex Pro 5. Decided to purchase this very compact, effective PDA since 95% of the time I need to reference a PDA for an appointment, phone number, etc. as opposed to finding the need to input data into it while away from the office. The Palm, etc, is too large to carry unobtrusively; the Rex Pro 5 easily fits into my pocket and weighs just over an ounce. Best business accessory I have found to increase my efficienct/productivity. Highly recommended!

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Functions, But Easy to Damage
This device works great, but easy to damage. I'm now on my second Rex in the past year. On my first one - I broke the screen - my fault - I should not have had it in my pocket. On my second Rex, the "home" button (the top one) just stopped working. I can still use it, but with difficulty, and now have to push the "reset" button on the back to do the same function as the home button. I'm not sure if I want to spend the money for another, but even after having trouble with two, I'm still considering it - the Rex is very handy. Another piece of advise - get a hard case for it - they are sold independently - use a search engine to find the numerous web site dedicated to the Rex.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent desktop extension
I have found this device to be the answer to my dilemma. I am able to take all my desktop PIM information in a convenient, tiny package. And better, it can be easily replaced if lost, broken. Highly recommended for those needing a convenient PIM on wheels.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't leave home without it!
This little gem keeps track of all my important contacts, appointments, notes, and other items. It is a bit difficult to get used to entering data via the buttons on the unit, but if you purchase the docking station (as I did), then it's a breeze. I love the size, because I can carry it with me anywhere I go, and so I always have access to all my important information anytime.

512KB may not seem like a whole lot of memory, but you'll be amazed as to how much information that translates into.

If you have problems trying to input data while you're in a hurry, then do as I do, I carry a small writing tablet that I use for quick notes, and then I enter them into the REX.

I had an Everex unit (similar to the Palm), but it was too bulky for me to carry around comfortably.

The tiny Rex gets my vote. I love it! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Scrabble anyone?
This would be great for 'school age' people. It doesn't have the rarely used words that will score the points in word games.
It does a great job shuffling letters to find the longest word possible. It displays the words in length / alpha order. I've found it doesn't have definitions for all words in it.

For doing serious writing, I'll stick with my computer spell-check. I use the Spelling Ace for word games.

The letters are displayed large and easy to read. No backlight.

3-0 out of 5 stars (...)
Urging other customers to buy another product insteadI bought this Franklin SA 206 Spelling Ace for my 10-year-old son hoping that it would be a less expensive version of the Franklin MWD-1440 Dictionary and Thesaurus that I use and enjoy.

Unfortunately, the Franklin SA 206 Spelling Ace only has a single line display (albeit with very large characters) which requires him to scroll constantly to read the entire dictionary or thesaurus entry. Because of this, he's always borrowing my Franklin MWD-1440 -- which has a five line display -- and is consequently much easier to use.

If you need a dictionary and thesaurus, get the Franklin MWD-1440 for the five-line display.

If you don't need the thesaurus, get the Franklin HW 216 Homework Wiz Plus (which I bought for my eight-year-old daughter, who loves it) which -- is a dictionary only -- and has a two-line display.

The Franklin MWD-1440 Dictionary and Thesaurus, and the Franklin HW 216 Homework Wiz Plus are used constantly. The Frankly SA 206 Spelling Ace just sits in the drawer.

5-0 out of 5 stars can't you read
First, this Franklin Spelling Ace is excellent. My children use it everyday in school and at home,and second it is recommended for age groups from 5-13 years old. Dah

2-0 out of 5 stars absolute crap
ok so i bought this figuring it will help me with essays and homework. I firgured this would not be the best, but would do its job and that what i wanted. Well it doesnt. First of all the dictionary isnt completely accurate. The Thesaurus and calculator are good. When this came to my door, i was expecting something smaller, and more sleek. This is huge (bigger than my hand) heavy and the letters are huge. They take up the whole screen, so you have to scroll to the sides and up and down to read the words. Overall its junk, its not worth the money, get something a bit more so its worth the money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not good for much
I bought this thinking it would be handy to have at school for looking up definitions to words. It's not. The definitions it has are too simple, and they are not easy to read. The print is so large that you must scroll to read the whole entry.

One of the main reasons I bought it was so I could have a pocket thesaurus if I ever needed to think of that perfect word on the spot. The problem is, the synonyms it provides all have the same definition. Therefore, if I wanted to find another word for "lazy" it would come up with LAZY (ADJ): IND-> with an arrow. You must then press the right arrow twenty times to have it reveal, letter by letter, the rest of the definition. "indisposed to expend effort to achieve and aim" Then when it gives you synonyms, you get words like indolent. Try to see what the definition of indolent is, and you get "indisposed to expend effort to achieve and aim". So, not only is this unhelpful if you need to know how synonyms have different connotations, it's also very frustrating if you're not sure how to pronounce it. Is it INdolent? inDOlent? You have no way of knowing.
Another final complaint is that the batteries are hard to change. You have to get out a screw driver and everything.

Anyone who needs a large print pocket speller (useful for spelling ONLY) should buy this. Anyone else should opt for a more expensive version that has better definitions and a larger screen ... Read more
