Pretty cool – Wireless Weather Station w/ Alarm Clock / Calendar / Barometer / Hygrometer / Thermometer Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Easy to use Great functionality - min/max, multiple external sensor support Information clearly visible Intuitive to use Doesn't look or feel to 'cheap'
Cons:
You have to 'reboot' (i.e. remove and reinsert batteries) the main unit every time you change the batteries in a sensor. A bit of a pain as you need to re-set the clock, date, etc. each time.
Other:
Haven't had a full run through the batteries yet, so I can't attest to how often the above reset procedure will need to be performed. The green backlight is fine, I actually prefer it to blue as it's less harsh, and the screen is perfectly readible with it. So far the temperatures seem accurate, and the weather prediction from barometric pressure seems accurate.
Bottomline:
Compared to what you'd pay for one of these in a store, this is a bargain. Reads the weather, hooks up with the sensor without issue, and looks fine. I haven't benchmarked it against anything else yet, but from the weather reports and by feel, it seems pretty accurate.
