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

Pros:
- Using AAA battery that can be bought anywhwere
- Battery efficient - have it for months and still using the same cheap acid battery
- Display is readabls also withot the internal light
- I am using it as as a barometer which works good
- The differential readings are more or less accurate
- The barometeric values can be adjusted hence calibrated
Cons:
- I suspect the pressure reading is not calibrated because it has some diffrernce compared to the meterological service published values
- The display is not the easiest to read due to relative low contrast, a common charecteristic of LCDs in this format
Other:
- The werather forecast is of course not relaible, but I am not stating this in "cons" because you would not really expect this small device to forecast the weather.
Bottomline:
Serves me well as a barometer.
