I've had this unit for a while now and it works very well. I usually leave the display set for outside temperature so I can quickly see if a jacket is needed in the morning. I love the weather icons indicating sunny, cloudy, rainy or stormy (lightning bolts) The moon phase is nice addition as well. The design is very classy and looks very nice on a desk or shelf. The beautiful multi-color display, however, is not LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) as indicated on the website but rather the nicer VFD (Vacuum Fluorescent Display) with delivers better contrast, depth and unrestricted viewing angle.

Great product. Most of all is the fact that it is electric vs. batteries; a money saver and a sheer convenience. It is clearly visible at all times unlike the ridiculous battery operated ones that you have to walk over to and press a button to view the information for only a few seconds. You know the manufacturers of the battery operated ones are in business with the battery manufacturers. What about our landfills with all those disposed of batteries? Excuse me for spouting off.
This product is compact and lightweight, fits anywhere. It is ideal for a room that does not have a clock or a bedroom that needs an alarm clock. What a great way to wake up, being able to see the time, temperature ( inside and outside) and whether it is sunny or dismal out. Celestron designers really thought this one through. Kudos to them.
