I have tried a few other spellers and this one does a superb job and is pritty fast at searching. Just a couple of seconds verses 10 or more on the Royal brand speller I bought my daughter, It even spells common proper nouns (names). Its small so I can take it with me everywhere in my waist pack. I have had mine for about 10 years and thought they stopped making them but glad to see they still do. The lid on mine is cracked (sat on it a couple of times) and the hinge is warn out, and the screen started missing some lines. But after ten years it still works on the original battery and I am very happy with it. They keyboard has not given me any problem after all these years as sometimes happens with silicon keys. I can fix electronics so I fixed the missing lines problem in the screen with a low temp soldering iron on the ribbon wire to the screen and glued the cracks in the lid with super glue. Otherwise I would have baught another one. The only criticism I have is that space bar is the enter key and to make a space when entering contacts you must use the right arrow key. Oh, and I wish the lid and hindge were stronger

Just got this today for my 6 year old. First of all, the plastic cover is almost impossible to open even for me without breaking my nails. The buttons are too small, impossible to read words on the tiny screen. This speller couldn't even find the spelling for simple words like "Orange" or "leaves". Returning.

We purchased this spell checker to replace one that wore out. Couldn't believe how tiny it is. Other than the keys being in different spots that the original, we love it. Also plays games, and other cool features that I didn't know about. Great for car trips and waiting rooms.

I love doing word puzzles and the spelling corrector helps me a lot. My husband is not a great speller and he uses it on his job writing reports. I would highly recommend this product.

  • A. it is a hit and miss store-shopping item. I bought 2 at Rite -Aid, then the next Rite Aid, when I wanted another one, said to wait unfall when the school supplies come out. It is on many, many Internet sites and it is returnable, since it's new so I would buy it after shopping around and comparing models. On Amazon, $25. and over purchases give you free shipping. E-bay will have it too, and the "used" ones there, are really items people got and never used. I have had great luck there as well. Try the Office Supply stores, but the computer access has millions of spell checkers, just compare carefully. Also, the Franklin 309 has DEFINITIONS and this one does not, for about the same price. It will have a THES button, for definitions, but they say Thesaurus, and you also get Antonyms and Synonyms.

  • A. Like Wal mart, etc? I found Franklin Spell Checkers in Rite Aid drugstore with the school supplies. office Supply stores sometimes have them in stock. This model does not have definitions with the spell checking. It is a simple model. The 309 does a lot more for the same price. E-bay has used ones all the time.
