Customer Reviews for Oregon Scientific WMR88A Semi-pro Wireless Weather Station
Review 1 for Oregon Scientific WMR88A Semi-pro Wireless Weather Station
Date:January 21, 2013
Cons: if you want cheap you get cheap.
"I had the previous OS system and it didn't last me very long. And when I needed parts, I couldn't get them in Canada. Every component failed at one point and I finally trashed it after only 16 months. I switched to a Davis system. More expensive but it has lasted me more than 6 years now with only one component change."

Review 2 for Oregon Scientific WMR88A Semi-pro Wireless Weather Station
Date:August 1, 2012
So So Weather Station
Pros: wireless, easy setup
Cons: annoying display, min/max resets hourly, forecast feature is iffy, pc software is a joke
"I bought this to replace a LaCrosse wired system that died. It is all wireless and that works great, however I find a lot of issues with this unit. First not all the data is displayed at one time. You have to scroll to various areas on the screen with a tiny, almost unseeable, arrow and then press a mode button to get your data. For example the barometer area is also the rainfall data AND the UV index. Also the unit resets the min/max every hour so there is no way to see how much rain you had for the week or month unless you keep track each day. The "forecast" feature is all out of whack and for many days forecast rain when the barometer was either steady or rising (we had sun...a lot of it). Finally the PC interface and software are a complete joke and useless...looks like the software was written in the 1980s. So would I recommend....yes with caveats. If you want an easy to set up unit that gives you data this will do fine (although as stated much of the data is annoying to get to). Just be aware of all of the issues."
