I personally find the NIV Bible to be my favorite combination of readability and accuracy in translation. I find the Study Bible version to be quite helpful.
I have the NIV Study Bible in large print, "bonded leather" format and in this hard cover standard print format. The large print version is printed in China and the print is somewhat inconsistent in darkness and sharpness. The harcover standard print version is printed in the USA. While the standard print is obviously smaller, it is more consistent, darker, and sharper which makes it, to some degree, easier to read for my 60+ year old eyes.
In my experience with several different translations and formats, the USA printed versions tend to be generally higher quality, especially in the print.
I have commented before to Christianbook.com that I would appreciate the country of origin being listed in the features/specifications section of all their Bible descriptions.
I must say that the service I have received from Christianbook.com has been excellent. I called asking about the country of origin of the hardback and the service representative with whom I spoke actually got a copy from their warehouse and inspected it for me. I will certainly continue to order from them.
