I checked very carefully, and this *is* the model I have. This is a GREAT, easy to set up, easy to use product that I wouldn't trade for anything. It has been prominent in my kitchen for over a year now, and I love it!

There is a slight catch: you do have to read the directions. Apparently, this a far more daunting challenge for most people than I would have guessed, as they only took me about five minutes to read.

Yes, the moon phases can appear backwards, but the illuminated portion of the clock matches the illuminated portion of the moon. This is a very minor complaint and after I got used to it (again, about five minutes), it hasn't thrown me off since.

Again, yes, you have to put a thermometer outside to have the outside temperature. I'm not sure what the other reviewer was expecting. On the plus side, I've always found it extremely accurate, and what's more, the signal appears to be able to pass through an entire house with no problem.

But, no, this clock adjusts itself and I haven't had to worry about resetting it for a long time.

I love this thing and never plan on replacing it with anything else. After reading these other reviews, I guess my only complaint is that it doesn't have a drink ready for me when I get home.

BTW, I find myself using the moon phases a lot more than I would've guessed.

My husband and I purchased two of these clocks two years ago. I LOVE this clock, but it does have two major flaws.

First, the Moon phases ARE correct, as anyone who reads the instructions will discover. When the clock gets information about the moon phases, it fills in each space with color, which translates to the visible parts of the moon being dark on the clock. So when the display is completely black, it is a full moon. When the display is empty, the moon is not visible. Still, it would be nice if the display were changed so the white parts of the display corresponded with the white part of the moon, so that it is more intuitive.

Secondly, the temperature reading is wonderful, WHEN it works! The indoor temperature is always accurate, and useful for gauging how long to keep the heat on, etc. The outdoor temperature will be accurate as long as it is placed appropriately - no direct sunlight, no boxed in overhangs; basically no place where there would be excessive heat or cold, as this would give an inaccurate reading. The *best* place for the sensor would be on the north side of a tree, which would be out in the open yet would also be shady (obviously, this would only be true in the northern hemisphere). However, the sensor only attaches with screws, and I wouldn't screw it into a tree.

The problem with the sensor is the poor design. The whole unit is dependent on a tiny, Y-shaped piece of metal, about 3 or 4 mm in size. It is souldered to a circuit board, yet it is also attached to the plastic casing of the sensor. Meaning, if the unit drops, the metal piece detaches, and the sensor no longer works. The parts are not servicable - my husband ripped the plastic case open with pliers to examine the pieces.

I own four of La Crosse's so called "Radio Controlled", or "Atomic", clocks ... all four originally worked perfect, then all four failed on the same day (still indicating that they received the NIST signal, but failing to re-set the clock). I understand that the NIST transmission was upgraded on that day, but they say that no existing receivers should be effected, the original time data is still on the signal, and it was just an upgrade. I did my research on the web, and found that thousands of other La Crosse clock users had the same problem. In other words, the La Crosse engineers should have designed a system that would tolerate upgrades to the signal.

I contacted La Crosse, carefully explaining the situation, and asking if they were going to do the right thing, and provide a solution, or new working clocks. They responded with a standard form letter, suggesting that I "try changing the batteries", or "try moving the clocks to a different location". I responded explaining that I had already tried all of that, and I again carefully explained that all four clocks functioned perfectly, and all four failed on the same day (still indicating that they received the NIST signal, but failing to re-set the clock) ... this is not a battery or location issue, it's an engineering failure.

The final response from La Crosse was that my clocks are "out of warranty", so it's my problem, not theirs.

So let me ask you this ... if a company refuses to do the right thing, and replace a product with an obvious design flaw, why would anyone ever buy a product from them again?

I've noticed a couple of people have had issues with the moon phases display,and I had the same confusion myself when I first got it, but it DOES correctly display the phases correctly! When the display is fully black, it's a new moon.When there is nothing in the phase display, it's a full moon. It makes sense once you get used to reading it.

The only "problem" I have had with this is having to replace the batteries in the clock and transmitter every 6 to 8 months. For that reason, I highly reccomend a quality battery. (I'm partial to Duracell myself). And I have no beef with having to place the OUTDOOR tempature sensor OUTDOORS to get an OUTDOOR tempature reading. I would think the phrase "outdoor sendor" might be a clue! Anyway the outdoor sesnor works fine, and is always within 1 or 2 degrees of the local news or online reports.

As far as the clock itself, it's great having the correct time (almost) all the time. I say "almost" because every once in a while it will lose the radio signal, and it will display the wrong time and year. Leave it alone and it will usually correct itself within a couple of hours.

If it's not against amazon policy, you'll now see a link to the official U.S. time [...] The link will show you Indiana time, but you can change your time zone once you get there.Indiana will begin to illegally observe DST next spring. (illegal because we, the citizens, did not get to vote on it)Anyway, about that link, once you get the clock set up, it's almost always perfectly synced with the time displayed on the link. Très cool!!:D
