A friend of mine would like to buy an electronic Japanese-English dictionary. What model do you recommend?

She says that the following three things are essential: (1) Japanese -> English; (2) English -> Japanese; (3) Furigana. Although not required, a very welcome bonus would be a dictionary that also had Japanese: Japanese definitions. Unless this is completely unrealistic, she would ideally like to spent US$300 or less.
What models would you recommend? What would you recommend against? Why? Are there any features in an electronic dictionary that she should look out for (she's never used one before and doesn't know what makes the best stand out)? In case it makes a difference, she will be buying this in Japan.
