This text has some nice features, but you should
get it for your fifth or sixth Greek NT, not your second.
It has a nice font, the dictionary in the back is great,
and its text is largely unmarred by markings, but it
does not really have a textual apparatus. It compares
its readings to NA 27 (where there are very few differences)
and to the Pierpont/Robinson text (that is essentially
the Byzantine Majority text) which is nice to have, but
after UBS 4 you want a more complete textual appartus.
To me clearly the best GNT available is the NET NA 27 diglot,
which has the full textual apparatus plus a facing translation
plus some great translation and textual notes, plus it is
large print. It costs a lot more than Westcott-Hort but it
is worth it. Also, since this new reissue of Westcott-Hort
does not give you any more of a textual apparatus, I would
consider a Reader's Edition (Zondervan's first edition is the
best for the money) first. But THEN I would get the WH reissue.
