where is the best place to buy Besta All Pass?


Hi ciaobella,

Sorry if this is too late. I got mine from Popular, $49.90 no change from the last time.

The promoter told me that the fact that I change once every year considered lucky already, some change every few months! :faint:

I think all popular stores carry both Besta and Han Vision( Creative) Chinese e-dictionary.
Besta has a showcase and a sales promoter for its products, whereas Creative e-dictionary is placed behind the cashier counters.
Besta is priced at $49.90 and Creative at $59~.

Hi
Need some advice on Chinese e-dictionary from experienced mummies here.

1. When do you buy the first e-dictionary for your child usually? P3 or P4?
2. For the list of approved e-dictionary by Seab, does the list get refreshed/updated every year? If yes, any cases of old products taken off the list with new products added in? I have a concern whether those models approved up till 2018 will not be re-approved next year, has it happen before?
3. How long does your e-dictionary lasts before they 'died'? I read from here that average life seems to be 2 years only at its max?
4. Any review of besta all pass 2? In what way is besta better than other models?

thanks.

My daughter got hers at P3. It was essentially a hand-me-down :). Now it has just gone bonkers. So I got her the besta. So far I think I've bought 2 Creatives and 2 Bestas in the last 10 years. The Bestas seem to last a tad longer.

Hi
Anyone saw any promotion for besta all pass 2 recently? I need to buy 2 units. A friend told me there was a promotion last year, buy 2 at $45 each, but I don't see any such promotion now. If anyone sees any such promotion can you let me know? Thanks.

Was at Popular juz nw.
Besta2 as compared to Creative PX2131 has roughly double the vocab.
Slightly cheaper then Creative at $49.80 but approved till 2018.
Creative is selling at $56 (my kids school promo) Aproved till 2020.
Only this model 2131 comes with Stylus.

Would like to know which is better in terms of ease of use and durability.
Besta is flip cover type and Creative looks like blackberry.
Need your feedback based on yr usage and experience for either one of both brands.
Thank you. :thankyou:

So far never read abt any protective cover for the edict.
Both comes with protective cover but creative have to buy at $5.

Hi all,
Anyone have any recommendation for besta dictionary (NOT FOR SCHOOL EXAMINATION) ?
Will need it to be able to translate between english and chinese as it is for my malaysian cousin who is not proficient in english.
Thanks in advance!
