Much is right about this unit from La Crosse. The positives outweigh the negatives by quite a bit. All of the weather information you are given satisfies my basic weather needs very well.
Also, I find the moon phases to be very useful to me, as the only way I usually get this information is to remember to check my wall calendar to see when the new moon and the full moon are for this month.
To have supplied all of the other moon phases I find to be cool and enjoyable to have. So to me, the price is very competitive to others and what I am receiving for value is very worth the price.
