Cambrige or Longman Dictionary

Cambrige or Longman Advanced Dictionary?

I've got serveral English dictionaries for instance, COLLINS, PENGUIN, and so on. Recently I've found two English-English dictionaries that are same size at a bookstore, they are as follows,

1. Cambrige Advanced Dictionary, they have the newest version, the 3rd version. NT$780

2. Longman Advanced Dictionary NT$1100

They are both preferable to me. I'm wondering which one I should get. I'm afraid if I get both of them, will I be able to utilize so many dictionaries efficiently?

So what do you, a English well experienced person think? Leave me your advice, please..

    These are both very good and popular dictionaries, but if cost is a concern, I'd go with Cambridge. Keep in mind that these are academic dictionaries so if you are planning to use it for everyday-use, you may be better off using Merriam-Webster Dictionary. My college English teacher recommended it. Just wondering why you need so many dictionaries if you already have a few on hand.

    Just for your information, you may also use Longman online: http://www.ldoceonline.com/

    And Cambridge online: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/

    The safest bet is to look up a few words you're interested in and compare what these 2 have to offer and decide which one you prefer!
