The dictionary function is really easy. If you like the touch screen of the Sony, you may find having to toggle down to the word a bit slower, but I moved away from Sonys because I dislike touchscreens and I prefer the slow but sure toggle navigation.
My K3 was a fairly early release, but it still looks pristine, with no letters rubbing off. Also, I have one of the original non-lighted books covers but can honestly say my K3 has never once crashed on me. I do look after it very carefully, and have never removed it from the cover from the day I fitted it, so perhaps I may have been lucky for that reason - oh, and I have never used the browser because I treat it solely as an e-reader and in that regard it has been a perfect purchase.
Though I liked my Sonys and felt like a traitor when I bought a K3, I have not regretted the purchase for an instance.
I don't think keeping the Kindle in the cover is part of the issue. My original Kindle, which got stolen, never had any problems. The new one, that I got at Christmas went straight in its cover and started acting up without the cover coming off. When Amazon CS told me to remove the cover and try a reset it was OK. I now have the have the cover with a light (thanks to Amazon) and it works fine.
