I believe this is the most technically accessible study Bible available between the e-book versions of the ESV, NIV and NKJ.
And within that very narrow confine, this version is worth 4 or more stars.
Bear in mind, any book you plan to use as a reference (and every Bible is one) is best used in a paper-bound format. So far no technology allows one to move back and forth with any speed between topics that often are addressed in one or more Gospels, letters and Old Testament references the way one can with a couple fingers and maybe a slip or two of paper stuck in a physical copy of the Bible.
In other words, almost all of us probably are best served with the least expensive version of an electronic Bible and a physical study Bible.
Electronic Bibles are terrific for use in church when one wishes to take notes and not be constrained by margins etc. and in my case very poor handwriting. They also fit on your phone and tablet. But paying for the latest version of any of the major study Bibles likely is wasted money for many of us.
Difficult to use
This Bible has a ton of info but very hard to use as an ebook. I have the Olive tree app with this study Bible. Much easier to access information.
