Here's the deal with this Sharp PW-E550, it is an adequate dictionary for most words. My wife and I are often finding words that it doesn't contain, but over all, worth the money. However, after about 6 months to 1.5 years the screen develops vertical streaks where you can't read the text. If you look online, you will see that this is a very common problem. It seems that the cable between the screen and keyboard gets fatigued from opening and closing the unit, until it is unusable. E-dictionaries where keyboard and screen are on one plane, won't have this problem. But, the screen will be half the size. So, here's the tradeoff, this Sharp unit is nice with its hinged lid and larger screen. Cheaper units like some of the Franklins have a smaller screen but won't have this screen problem. I've been deciding whether it might work for us to buy a color Android table where we can just put a dictionary app on it instead of a single use electronic dictionary. Not sure which way to go. Enjoy!

The biggest problem with reading about anything is not understanding certain words and this electronic dictionary is amazing! Any word and derivation can be looked up and understood by using this wonderful gadget. It's compact and the price was lower than anywhere else. I love it and only wish it had pronunciation sound.

I previously had a less expensive (~$50) electronic dictionary. At least three of ten words I would look up were in the dictionary. I've had the E550 for almost a month and use it daily. I've yet to try to find a word that wasn't contained in this dictionary. Excellent purchase!
