I've used the NKJV Study Bible for years, and I love it. I have a Bible from most versions out there for reference, but as far as day to day use, I highly prefer my NKJV Study Bible!
This particular version is very similar to my other ones, with the same set up, but it has has a lovely soft blue/turquoise cover, with silver outer page coloring. (The pictures make it look like it's black and turquoise, but it's really a lovely blue, not black.) The colors alone are worth getting a copy. ;) Seriously, though, I greatly enjoy the notes at the bottom of the pages that give a little extra detail about the verses. You get great background knowledge concerning the different time period the verses were written in. Just for the sake of honesty, some of the notes do contradict themselves when it comes to interpretations of verses. I would never suggest you use those notes solely, and I recommend them for historical value more than anything else. Study God's Words more than anything, not men's. These notes are a great jumping point, though, and I greatly appreciate them, and use them regularly.
Also, I appreciate the size of the words. They're not huge, but they're not so small that I'm uncomfortable reading it. For the average person, they're just right.
I think most people have their favorite Bible version already, but if you're looking for a nice NKJV Study Bible, this is a beautiful option.
