    RRP 45man?? I think you missed a decimal point out there. They give Ex-words out free to teachers at my school, I'm not a fan.
    I understand what you're saying though. And no, I don't have access to Akihabara most people in inaka don't. But I'm happy with the saving I got on my dictionary thank-you very much. It still worked out cheaper than what my friend paid after he looked in Akihabara and the versions they have in Taiwan & HK. (The dictionary we have is for Japanese/Chinese learners of English so that's why he checked Taiwan & HK)
    Give me my marker show me my line... surely this is it... the edge?

    Yeah sorry about the decimal point, need to wake up.

    They give these Ex-words out for free? Nice

    Actually I just used the first one there as an example. I got a Seiko one myself, J/C/E too.

    The school is blocking the link so I can't see which ones you're asking about. But yeah, all the teachers here have free ex-words. The students now have electronic dictionarys (and they all must buy the same model) so the rep gives the teachers a freebie one as a thanks for the custom kind of kickback.
    I prefer my dictionary coz it's got the little pen I can use to draw swiggles, erm kanji, on the screen.
