Contrast display. Easy readout. Measures both temperature and humidity. Shows approximate weather forecast. Build quality is average but OK. Relatively easy operation. Main unit can be mounted on wall on sit on your desk.
Comparing to Oregon products this one has significant drawbacks. Outdoor unit has lesser transmitting range; its weaker signal can barely pass one room. Cities list doesn't have some major capitals like Moscow for example.
In spite of using the same frequency with Oregon transmitters they're are not supported thus you can't use them as a secondary sensors (It's kind of important for me because I have one).
Main unit uses AA batteries and outdoor unit uses AAA batteries which is not that convenient in my opinion.
Weird purplish backlight looks ugly.
Transmitter has its own LCD and that doesn't make sense. Who's gonna read it if it will be mounted on the outer side of your window let's say on the 10th floor?
Moon phases? Seriously? Why?
Very affordable piece of weather equipment. Works well but with noticeable limitations.
