Alt Product

The first alternate puzzle, and I'm posting it a day early to coincide with its posting as the Problem of the Month for April 2014.  It's a product puzzle, but with one repeated digit on a 7X7 grid.  You also might notice the attempt to create "LU" shapes in the puzzle.  The puzzle was created to honor Longwood University’s 175th year (which puts its incorporation at, yes, 1839). 

The official rules:
  • The digits 1, 7, 5, 1, 8, 3, and 9 appear in the above puzzle.  The digits 3, 5, 7, 8, and 9 appear exactly once in each row and each column. The digit 1 appears exactly twice in each row and each column.
  • Digits in each shaded region must multiply to the indicated product.   
  • Squares with multiple colors contain a number that’s used in the product for adjacent regions of each of those colors.  
  • Remember: numbers can repeat within a shaded region if that doesn't violate the first rule.
