Comment:
Like more than 50% of the reviewers here (and elsewhere) we've got a problem with this unit. The backlight died on the display making it almost impossible to use without bright light or a flashlight.<br /><br />I'm frustrated that CR does not retract their Recommend status on this product when it's very obvious it is not well designed.<br /><br />All of the positive reviews here are for people who have not had the unit very long. Just wait your turn is coming. Be prepared to re-write your positive review.
