I have not tried anything other than Noah Lite (with the largest word set,
probably since 2002), but I would vote for it, definitely. I don't use a
dictionary too often, but when I need a definition, Noah Lite delivers it
fast. It even takes as input the content of the clipboard by default, which
is good if you spellcheck.

In defence of my choice above, I would only argue that the OP sought a
freeware dictionary.
