  • Disappointing start

    Comments about Product:
    Bought as a Christmas gift for my husband. After he went to all the work putting the sensor on the roof, after the first storm it won't work. Part has come off. Can't find the part, can't reach the sensor because of snow and ice. Disappointing. Will try to get a replacement part. Otherwise, good looking unit and fun to watch other features.
  • Have purchased to replace unit that fail

    It is used t0 keep track of the weather. There is significant doubt about accuracy of rain amount and wind speed. Does not agree with simple column type rain guage 20' away. Wind speed also seems low, based upon my opinion as a sailor

    Delivery was quick. Full manual should be included w/ unit. Navigation on the display is not easy to follow, hard to clear data.
  • don't buy this!

    Comments about Product:
    the temp and wind are wildly inaccurate and the display for wall went out after only 3 months. You can read it if it is laying flat on the table, but not hanging on the wall which is what we bought it for. We wasted our money on this one. Shame, it would have been a lot of fun it it did any of the stuff it said that it would.

  • Not worth the trouble

    i have changed batteries 4 times - the hg function will not work. I even contacted the maker of unit. I did everything they suggested. So now with ice and snow it stopped working except for temp because the unit froze on the unit installed on 10 foot pole away from everything.(so much for wind chill function!) As soon as I can get it down I will return for refund. john shepherd
  • Not reliable

    Comments about Product:
    Purchased the item several years ago. The temp stopped working within a year. Finally got that straighten out, now the wind reader does not work. It is a pain in the behind to re-progream (i.e. when changing batteries or zeroing out the rain gauge) something about pressing the one button so many times -
  • very disappointing for the price

    Comments about Product:
    We purchased our weather center for Christmas on 2008. A little over a year later, It quit working. The on-line support was slow and ineffective. Finally, several weeks later, they said to send the whole thing back. They returned it shortly with a difficult to understand statement. Now 8 months later it again will not record the current weather, no temps, wind, or rain.
  • i would buy this product again

    Hi Folks, The starter weather station performed great for the first day. Then, the second day it no longer displayed the barometric pressure. I am currently working with Lacrosse Technology to determine the cause. Can't seem to define the problem but hope to. Somewhat disappointing but hopefully can resolve the problem.
  • It has a problem

  • Basically good overall

    Comments about Product:
    Everything works well on this, however the outside temp. is always very high - we must have put it in the direct sunlight. Also, there is no indoor temp display - somehow I missed that on the description and it would have been a nice additional feature.

    It was a little more complicated to set up and program than I thought it would be. Ok, now that we are used to the read out.

    I use this weather station for information for flowers and herbs. I also use this product for tracking the weather for fishing. I'm a fly fisherman and use this to track when the bugs are hatching.
