I do not know if it is overpriced, but it is definitely worth it. It is as long as the top panel of my fridge. Markers are good that come with it. I use another cloth as a duster since duster balls on the markers came off when I used it aggressively. The day wise planner is good for people on diets or with busy schedules. I use it to write small messages for my family. Its fun and interesting. Magnet works fine and no problem after, I think 2 months of use. My mother is using it for a year, and except the markers there is no problem. P.S: make sure you do not use permanant marker. My nephew did and I had to rub it off with a thinner.
