4-0 out of 5 stars Great item for the non-conformist Scrabble player
First- let me say; I have to give this a 4, I'm afraid the quality of the item is not the highest standard. It is beginning to have trouble pressing buttons, and giving all word possibilites. I think this is because we use it so much. I have used this item for about 5 months, anywhere from 2-3 hours a day! It is great for entering letters, and having the item (we call it "the brain") tell you all the available words. Can't play scrabble without it! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars unwieldy. database lacks.
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 www.m-w.com 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?

4-0 out of 5 stars Good but need to improve some key things
I might bought this e-dict (LM-6000) 13-15 years ago in HK; at that time they have no official seller and I have to take the risk that no one can repair it if the e-dict has problem. Luckily it never breaks down, so far. Frankline is easy to use and I like the detailed explanation and some other fuctions such as thesaurus and class (for example if you look up thesaurus you will get almanac, encyclopedia, etc.) Although it contains grammer and word games, I seldom use these add-in.
I do not blame its size since it is obviously for desktop use. But I soon found that its display should be allowed to tilting; it reflects too much light. Further, the operation speed is significantly associated with the battery power. The newest model is equipped with low battery indication; I hope it helps.
Further, it would be good if the dictionary can include more examples of word usage. It may be that the paper copy of the dictionary does not contain sufficent examples.
Last, it may be good or not, Frankline does not support downloading new words. There should be a function that allows you to input the new word manually; I have never used it. But if it can accept download, it would be great. Nowadays, the technology should enable this dictinoary do this easily.
While there are some shortcomings of Franklin e-dict, I will recommend this to anyone who are looking for a real e-dict that is put on the desktop use and do not want a lot of games or irrelevant add-in.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Ergonomics, Poor Screen
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.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is enough for all student
Hi ..

I'm a user for franklin translator since 1999 , which is my frist year in my unversity , so it helped me alot really alot. And I`m considering to buy a new one that's why I searched in amazom .

4-0 out of 5 stars it is a language master!
it is a good investment. the upside of it, convenient, quick, handy, and you can use in your entire life...however, the downside of it, i don't enjoy the digital pronunciation very much, it is not scaleable at all, which normally palm and other ebook gadget offer, and it is pretty big in term of size, you cannot put it in your pocket. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Franklin MWS-1840 is a great product!
The Franklin MWS-1840 is a great product! I'm an avid reader and I love looking up new words whenever I see them. So when my old electronic dictionary didn't know the definition of unusual words, I succumbed to looking them up words on-line. This dictionary holds an insurmountable amount of definitions and pronounces them for you! To give you an idea of how the definition sounds, go to yahoo's dictionary reference where they do .wav pronunciations of words. Voice isn't bad at all and it will definitely help you with pronunciations. There is also a headphone jack, which is perfect when you are in class or at the library. The games are simply fabulous and word list is going to be crucial for my SATs. With the pronunciations, games, and the word list's it is already worth the money. It also has a grammar guide, which is great for fledglings in English grammar like myself. With an eclectic selection of book cards, translators, encyclopedias, games, and dictionary expansions, this gadget becomes nothing less then remarkable. Was this product worth the price? Yes, and I would have paid even more for it.

4-0 out of 5 stars great on-the-go
This dictionary has the same definitions and words as my Merriam Webster, Home and Office Edition which I think is useful for those who are looking for a small, compact electronic dictionary. Some disadvantages- You can't upgrade it and you can't count on it replacing a large hardback dictionary.
Its small enough to take anywhere and convenient on-the-go. No need to stop, figure out spelling, and turn to the right page. The vocabulary is sufficient and the pronunciation is okay. Although I have little use for the speaker, I found the pronunction a bit censored. It will not pronouced words such as anal, boob, or anything like that. Thats fine with me, I was checking to verify another reviewer's complaint. Overall everything else is satisfactory.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing...
My dad bought me this dictionary for my schoolwork last year. I didn't know how he paid then. But I totally freaked out when saw its price. This does NOT worth $75! The screen is very small, and I always pressed the 2 letters at a time because the button were SO TINY! It's about a size of my pinky's nail! also it is BIG. It's not good for caring around. If you really need a electronic dictionary, i recommend Franklin MWD-1440 Dictionary. It might look kinda small and lame but it knows how to do its thing! I say it's way better than this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Definitely a handy tool for the word curious!
I've had mine for at least 1 1/2 years and have had to change the batteries only once so far. Granted, I don't use it constantly, but when I do, the word I'm looking for is stored 80% of the time. That said, I have to add that I'm often looking for words in more specialized fields that I can then only find in big and bulky dictionaries. I love this gadget because whenever I come across a word I haven't heard or read before I can quickly type it in and usually get an explanation. I give it only 4 stars because a) sometimes the explanation contains more words I have to look up, and not enough examples to understand it easier, and b) because it is not backlit. I understand that a backlight uses more power, but maybe an added lithium battery for just such a purpose (preferably rechargeable) would do the trick so it doesn't get too heavy. Either way, while a clear plastic flipcover would be a good idea to protect the keys, I have not had a problem with keys getting stuck or any other issues. I am overall very happy with this product and recommend it to anyone who likes to expand his vocabulary or who simply has fun with words.

4-0 out of 5 stars Satisfactory unit.
Very happy with this 1840. Just what I wanted especially since the text and contrast are adjustable. SJ ... Read more

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

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.

1-0 out of 5 stars Franklin Dictionary
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

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

Amazon.com Review

Why pull heavy books off the shelf when you can consult your lightweight, portable Franklin MWD-1440 dictionary and thesaurus? It easily fits into your pocket and includes games and spelling correction, too.

The MWD-1440, an electronic version of a Merriam-Webster dictionary and thesaurus, is easy to set up and learn. Just insert two coin-cell batteries (included) to get the unit running. Operating the MWD-1440 is intuitive, but Franklin has also included a manual in English and Spanish, as well as condensed instructions that appear on the inside of the unit's protective cover.

To look up a word, turn on the unit, type the word, and press Enter. For example, when we evaluated the MWD-1440, we looked up "iconoclast," and the unit displayed two complete definitions along with the word's Middle Latin and Middle Greek etymology. We pressed the Up and Down arrow keys to scroll through the information. For a list of synonyms, we pressed the Thes button, and the unit displayed six synonyms for the first definition and four synonyms for the second definition. While the unit is simple to operate, typing is difficult because of the tiny keys.

In addition to dictionary and thesaurus functions, the unit has a crossword-puzzle solver, a calculator, and a metric/currency converter. There's also a searchable list of SAT words for those studying for the college boards. The Confusables feature marks words that are commonly confused with each other (for example: their, they're, and there) and clarifies them. The Learnables feature includes flashcards that display words and allow you to guess the definitions; you can press Enter to see if your answer is correct. The unit also contains nine games: Hangman, Anagrams, Word Train, Word Builder, Jumble, Link Four, Link Four (for two players), Tic Tac Toe (for one player), and Tic Tac Toe (for two players).

With its low price, expandability, and portability, the Franklin MWD-1440 makes a fine pocket-sized dictionary and thesaurus. --Mike Brown

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little dictionary
This little machine can do almost anything I love it. I use it for everything, for dictionary, thesaurus, 9 games, sat words, spelling bees, metric converter, calculator, and much more. If there is anything it doesn't have you can buy one of the bookman cards at franklin.com to make the mwd-1440 even more versitile like a spanish-english dictionary and more. If you don't have this you should buy it, it's just so helpful!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Terrific Electronic Dictionary!
I just recieved this as a gift and I couldn't be more pleased! Its features include a very expansive dictionary and thesaurus, fun games, word lists, SAT words, flashcards, and a unique addition called Bookman. I really like the Word list feature because you are able to add a total of forty words at a time and then use your own words as flashcards. Although I have not used the Bookman, the idea of a electronic card with book length material on them is useful. All of these features combine to form an excellent hand-held dictionary that resolves the nuisance of leafing through a large dictionary. I highly recommend this product, and consider it the best there is to offer in electronic dictionaries.

5-0 out of 5 stars great ending
The Franklin MWD-1440 Dictionary and Thesaurus with Bookman II
is a perfect purchase for those who expected more from the MWD-1300. It is a rolicking tale of words fed into a dictionary and a thesaurus then spit out through an electronic keyboard and screen at the touch of a finger (or fingers). It rocks from A to Z! Buy it and you'll never look back.

4-0 out of 5 stars I love this little thing. I take it with me everywhere.
I got one of these things for Christmas a couple years ago, and I don't know how I got along without it, (at least until I lost it a while ago, but I'm sure I'll find it eventually).

The dictionary is very useful, I never read a book without this by my side anymore. (The expansion pack for an increased dictionary is a great addition.) It's detailed enough that I often look up words I already know just because I'm sure I'll find some new meaning to them. As a spell checker I've almost never been let down by this little toy, except for the few rare (but frustrating) cases where it just didn't know the word exists. I don't use the thesaurus much, so I can't comment on that functionality.

The little games are great to play when you have a spare moment. They're a fun way to improve your vocabulary. Since I never leave the house with this thing, I'll always take it out whenever I'm in a long line or on the bus.

An issue I have with this gizmo: There's a pretty low limit on how many words it can "learn" (remember for later use), around 20-25 I think. I often have it learn new words so I can memorize them more thoroughly later on through the flashcard game, and it's bothersome when I hit the limit.

The flip case could be a bit easier to use, but that's a very minor complaint.

(Note that I don't have a lot of experience with other handheld dictionaries, just a scarce half-dozen that I've played with that have been lying around. I'm giving this gadget 4 stars just based on general usefulness in my life.)

5-0 out of 5 stars very handy
I bought the MWD-1440 some time ago and I find it very useful for quick lookup of words as well as thesarus entries. I can store a short wordlist of the words i didnt know and view them as flash cards too! Its a great buy. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Elementry
I have never written a product review but I felt very compelled to do so after buying and using this product that had received such high marks. This product does not even contain the most basic words that a middle school student would come across in their daliy work and I a very certain that this would be of no use to a college student. I read the review of this product that the university english professor had posted highly endorsing this product. This will be of absolutely no use to any college unless they are looking up words like "house, car, people, ect." This machine will not give definitions for many of the basic words that it can spell such as "compell." There are some good spell checks but this is not one of them.

3-0 out of 5 stars more words!
most of the words in here I already know... Franklin should produce a dictionary of more obscure, academic words. but it's good for spelling, I guess....

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for Students!
This handheld Franklin MWD 400 electronic dictionary is an excellent buy because it is efficient and accurate, as well as small and easy to carry around, and relatively inexpensive. It has a spellchecker that is comparable with higer priced, more elaborate electronic dictionaries; it offers several feasible options. It offers viable definitions for thousands of the most commonly used words. The purpose of the dictionary is just that: to be a dictionary - it is NOT just a spellchecker [which often is not helpful in other models] nor is it cluttered with a scheduler or other distracting major features: It focuses on words, their spelling, and definitions. This is a must for any serious student, whether college or high school. I am now requiring it for my college English students. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Better than the competition.
The best I can say about this product is that it's superior to the dictionaries available for download on the Palm platform--but that's not saying all that much. The interface needs improvement; the definitions do not include tips on the pronunciation of words; and some words are either missing from the database or are only half-heartedly defined. For the price, which is at least double that of the download-able dictionaries, I was hoping for more. Having said that, this product does indeed work--I'm a college student, and the dictionary contains the majority of the words I've needed to look up, including some obscure and technical ones. This product is, for now, the only dictionary out there that's worth spending money on. Despite my three-star rating, I'd recommend it to any owner of a Visor that is looking for a dictionary (this product is MUCH better than the Noah program).

2-0 out of 5 stars needs improvement
The idea of having a dictionary as big as the one advertised in this module is great. How many times have you wanted to look up a word only to stop yourself because you didn't want to open up that huge book? Even for those of us who have internet connections to look up words easily, sometimes we are not around the Internet and would like to be able to look up a word on an airplane, train, or bus, etc. The problem is with this module is the implementation. The navigation is poor, and even if you don't use it at first, you will want navigation in it lately. I would wait until Franklin releases a better user interface.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best springboard module.
For me This is the most useful of all the springboard modules. I usually have to carry a big heavy college-size dictionary around when I want to read something because there's inevitably going to be some obscure word that I don't know and that'll bug me if I don't look it up; but carrying around that size of a dictionary although it's really useful is rather on the cumbersome side. I was skeptical at first as to whether this dictionary had what it takes (as compared to an Encarta dictionary or an American Heritage college-sized dictionary) but the definitions are pretty close to what I'm used to reading the main difference being instead of carrying around a 10 pound dictionary I'm not carrying much more than my Handspring visor! This module mounts flush and even though beyond simply looking words up the navigation is a little lacking; the act of looking up words is much easier and quicker than opening up and looking for the words in a 10 pound dictionary. I don't use the module for anything beyond looking up words so I don't really use any of the navigation (beyond the little left arrow at the top to move from the specific definition to the index of all of the words). Navigation among the words is so easy I even found myself scrolling through the dictionary and looking up words that I knew nothing about; with this module it's sort of fun! So if you like to look up words and you own a handspring visor you should ask yourself this: Would you rather carry around a ten pound dictionary or a flush-mounting pittance of a module? ...And could you use all of the time you waste flipping through pages and running your finger down a column of ink?

3-0 out of 5 stars Good definitions but lacks color and user friendly interface
I've just got my dictionary module and I've been playing with it for a few hours. It's nice but I was waiting for something much better than the Freeware Noah dictionary. There are no colors and the font options are even too small or too big. The shortcuts are also useless. If you want to go back you have to use < and > for forward. It is very hard to do those symbols in my Visor and I think hardware buttons shortcuts would have been much better. The interface looks boring, like a DOS shell with not colors or anything. The only good thing about it is the search feature that looks for words that are similar to the one you entered if misspelled. I hope they release an update for this module. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars not worth it
I bought this dictionary and was extremely dissapointed. All the words have one short brief definition and some of those definitions were to short to make sense. I wouldn't reccomend this dictionary to anyone. No use spending your money on it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Slim and portable- a great gift
this is a great help to people like me who just can't spell. You can take it anywhere because it is so slim and tiny. The dictionary is also a great help. I use it a lot and haven't had to replace the batteries yet.

vey simple to use and helpful, plus very compact (it actually fits in your pocket). has a spellchecker, dictionary, definition search, and calculator. A great gift for any student.

1-0 out of 5 stars Life span
This instrument allows only limited use due to short battery life even when a new ones are gotten.

I also consider it a dinky dictionary -- it gives only minimal number of definitions and minimal description of definitions. ... Read more
