My only complaint has to do with the printed edition of Deuteronomy. It has a misprint in it of about 40 pages that are printed twice and the same number missing. JPS will provide a corrected replacement when they finally reprint it soon.
This set is HIGHLY recommended for those with any interest in the Torah and Hebrew scriptures.

I'm curious if someone who owns this can tell me more about the Accordance layout? The sample screenshot on the product page didn't show much. The print has essentially an English-Hebrew diglot at the top of the page, with notes below. (Not sure what English translation--presumably one by JPS?)
Any screenshots, whether here or in a private message, are welcomed, just so I can see a bit more.

Thanks, Rick! This is great. Looks good.
Are the "JPS Excerpts" the full Hebrew and English text that are included in the print editions? If not, are those English and Hebrew texts included as part of the commentary, whether integrated into it or as stand-alone modules?

The Excerpt is only the English translation (yes, JPS or sometimes also referred to as NJPS) that precedes each commentary portion for a particular verse or verses. The Hebrew text is not included. I haven't read the introduction to the commentary series, but my assumption is that it does not differ greatly from the BHS / WLC already in Accordance.
