I seldom write reviews, but for this one, I have to say something. I very much wanted to thank Venturini Viviana from Italy and Hubert Shea from Hong Kong for I decided to get this after reading their reviews.
It has over 80,000 entries and 215,000 pronunciations including common names, surnames, places, cities and brand names etc. Just the CD-Rom alone is well worth the money. Though it may not be the most comprehensive one on the market compare to Oxford (with 100,000 entries) etc., it's the only one comes with this amazing CD-Rom. It is sure to be XP compatible, very user-friendly, fast responding and accurate. Use only your cursor to point to the word while surfing internet or working on word document and it'll automatically pronounce each word in a second if you choose to (spoken by a native British English speaker).
The only shortcomings are:-
1. I can only look up 90% of the words from this Dictionary.
2. I can't use it in Excel.
3. Only the root forms of words in British English Pronunciation is recorded.
That is, I still have to rely on the free Merriam Webster's Collegiate online Dictionary sometimes (which is pretty inconvenient). As a whole, this CD-Rom is by far the best on the market!
