I have an older non backlit and a new backlit and think it is worth having, I think $20 extra is a little steep but I still would do it again. And it does work well turning the backlight off when there is enough ambient light.
To me it is just easier grabbing just the thermometer and doing a quick check when it is zero degrees like it has been here then grabbing both a thermometer and a flashlight. I do have light out near the egg but it really is not enough to read the display

Wonder why there is even two options....?? I have non backlit with no issues but they should all just be backlit...
I can't find an open box sale. Link please? If you scroll down few postings, someone posted a link.
You bought a BGE. Is an extra 20 dollars out of your range? I think not. Remember, you only live once.
