English-Esperanto Dictionary?

(I apologize if this has been asked/answered before somewhere, but I have failed to find anything useful)

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good English-Esperanto Dictionary?

I would like to have a reliable source to go to, but the handful of sites I've tried seem to all disagree slightly (or my grasp of Esperanto isn't strong enough to pick up nuanced meanings). I have an account at vortaro.net but, again, I don't know enough Esperanto yet to comfortably use it. I've used Google Translate, but I cannot tell if it's of high-enough quality to be used reliably.

If anyone has any suggestions for high-quality English-Esperanto dictionaries - either print, website, or (android) mobile app - I would greatly appreciate it.

Good answers... well, not only my own <grin> but there were some good answers from others on the online dictionaries.

For simplicity's sake, I usually use the dictionary at lernu (which is on the right sidebar of each page), because it's faster and easier than looking things up in a text file. http://lernu.net

I wrote a simple web front-end for ESPDICT here: http://retvortaro.appspot.com/. That is the last of the three that Frenchmoine listed.

The best that I've found is Benson's Comprehensive English-Esperanto Dictionary. It's simple but large and well put together, and notates when the words it suggests haven't seen wide acceptance.

Just wanted to underscore that Benson is one-directional, which is fine if that's what you're looking for.
