Seiko ER-3700 Crossword Solver Widget
I had an older model Seiko solver that I knew well and did what I needed, soIwas attracted to another Seoko as a replacement. The old one died because several of the buttons packed up rendering it unusuable. Hope it doesnt happen to this one.
This crossword solver has all the things I need ie anagrams, missing letters (ie the "crossword" solver), thesaurus and other stuff I dont use. Its faster than the last one I had and is all round a very satisfactory device for finishing off the Telegraph crossword.
There are words it doesnt know about but I guess it only has a subset of the full OED in it. Come to think of it this must be an issue with every electronic crossword solver as the OED is 20-odd substantial volumes.
It doesnt do plurals, so if the desired solution is a plural you have to key in a "crossword" request with 1 fewer letter than the clue in the paper states. Annoying but you get used to it.
In summary, this is a very useful little device that is not quite perfect but
great value at the price.
