Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hoosiers Enjoy this device a lot
I really like this weather station, especially enjoy seeing the "feels like" temp outside before I head out. The remote was easily hung under the house eve in an area where it's somewhat protected from most rain (just in case). The base station forecast feature was in "learning mode" for just over two weeks, but all other features worked immediately. Outdoor temp, dew point, humidity are dead-accurate (according to local weather broadcast on tv). Indoor temp runs at 1 sometimes 2 degrees high but that doesn't bother me much since the main purpose (for me) was outdoor conditions. I had NO issues with the outdoor sensor connecting to the base station, I'd estimate it is around 50 to 60 feet away and easily connected thru two walls. No issues with loss of connection yet.
The display does wash out if not looking at it directly. Not a big deal to me, but some don't like it because of that.
I ordered this on-line and picked up at the customer service department, super easy, convenient, and fast....and I figure that saved me some money since I can't seem to walk around a hardware store without buying something that's not on my "list".
I highly recommend this item - if I lived on property larger than a city lot I would LOVE to have the model with a wind gauge/sensor, but I have no place to place a 30' pole. :) Hoping the wind-chill reporting is accurate, but not looking forward to winter to confirm it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Temperaturebug This appears to be an excellent product, but we will see how long the outside transponder works. (The last two indor/outdoor thermometers I owned the outdor unit failed.). This unit not only shows temperature and humidity for indors and outdoors, it also has a barometer and a clock. The outdoor unit requires batteries but the inside unit runs on household power with batteries for power failures. Under house power use it is backlit (can be turned on temporarily when on batteries). It also has a small "coin" battery to keep the clock running if the batteries are dead in a power failure. The barometer not only shows the pressure (in inches of mercury) it indicates the weather that might be expected in the next 12/24 hours. Rising pressure usually indicates improving weather andfalling pressure the opposite. The forecast is probably less accurate than you would get from any of the various web weather services, but maybe not that much. It sort of reminds me of my grandfather about 70 years ago tapping his mercury filled barometer to figure out what the weather might hold for his garden (that was long before decent weather prediction by computer was possible, partly because there were no computers available at the time). It also displays the current phase of the moon for any werewolves. Perhaps the only thing it is missing is an automatic synchronization of its clock to the NIST broadcast time from Colorado. I also bought a unit with that option (from another store since I didn't see one available at Home Depot. It is a House and Garden brand. It works fine where we have it in our kitchen, but it is not backlit and doesn't show the humidity. It does have an internal barometer and does make a "weather forecast" but does not show the actual pressure. For our bedroom area I much prefer the one reviewed here. (The other one was the advantage of being about 40% cheaper, but neither are expensive for what you get. I am more concerned about the lifetime of the outside transponder.)

It's still "learning" after several weeks and doesn't always give an accurate read of the weather. Disappointing for the amount paid for the device.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Erica Really nice
I bought this specifically for my chicken coop. I wanted to monitor the humidity & temperature. It works perfectly. The display is so bright. I can read all of the information from across the room. The price was really great for what this unit can do and the quality. Super easy to set up. Very happy with this purchase.
