Cateye Double Wireless CC-CD300DW first use

I got my Cateye double wireless CC-CD300DW computer last week. I paid $135.00 for it. I was using an Astrale 8 computer before and the cadence had broken and all the wiring was just too much of a hassle to deal with. I was looking for a wireless computer for a while and found the CC-CD300DW and waited a damn long time for it, like from March or so on i was lokking for it. Anyway, it was so damn easy to install, it comes with a nice stem mount that puts it dead in front of your stem. After that you mount the cadence/spped unit on your back wheel which barely fit on my Giant TCR carbon frame because the little swing arms that are the sensors kind of wing out. After you mount it you push a little button on the sensor and the head unit picks up the code, you put in the wheel size (preset to 700 road wheels) and your done. I did this after 6 vodka and cranberry drinks at a wedding and still had no problem. I will post some picks soon.

I bought a Cateye Double Wireless a few weeks ago since it seemed like a good clean setup for the back of our tandem. The computer installed quickly and it worked just as promised. The only complaint from my stoker was that the numbers in the display were really small and difficult to read.
But after a few weeks of use the computer started acting strangely - beeping/flashing/random readings. Resetting, and hard booting the computer doesn't seem to help at all. The best I can get out of it now is either time of day or the "Sleep" mode message.
Anybody have any other experience yet with this computer?

Is this computer still working good for you? I was thinking about getting one however the manager at my LBS said they quit carrying Cateye wireless computers a while back because of reliability issues. He followed that up by saying they may have improved their design and we'll order one if you want it. I noticed one post here with problems so I was curious as to how you are fareing.
