Advantages: Very extensive vocabulary covering all periods of ancient Greek; careful (though dated) scholarship; morphological information provided; authors identified; some entries are actually helpful glosses on specific passages of major authors (though unlike LSJ citations are not provided); easier to consult than LSJ.
Disadvantages: no English-Greek vocabulary; bulkier than the Pocket Oxford Classical Greek Dictionary.

Qimmik, Sounds like you are suggesting buying used because older editions are of higher quality (binding, typesetting?), not just price. Is there a vague date when the OUP publishing declined--ie, should those published in the 90s also be avoided in favor of the 60s reprints?
