Great, except for the temperature.

Pros: detailed easy to install
Cons: outside temp is inaccurate during daylight hrs.
"I bought this about 3 weeks ago. It was relatively easy to install. The wind anemometer, and thermometer started working right away. The rain gauge seems accurate, with choice of daily, weekly, and monthly rainfalls.
My one disappointment is: this does not come with a separate temperature sensor. It is built into the wind anamometerr, thus dictating that it be installed in a sunny location, so the wind speed is accurate. The temperature readings are siginificantly higher than what is true during daylight hours. It quickly drops and becomes accurate as the sun goes down. My hope is that it will be more accurate in the winter months, when winchill is one of the more important readings I will utilize.
If your intention is to purchase with the outside temperature in mind, you will be disappointed. All other features work very well.

A Lot Better than my Old Weather Station

Pros: easy instalation & setup, clear & easy display
Cons: bad battery door design
"Instalation: Was not happy with the metric mounting bolts, delayed instalation until I obtained vibration proof nuts. Don't want it coming loose mid winter. Wind Unit: What tool designs a battery door that is held on with 4 "Micro" screws. I can just imagine the fun getting up a 14 foot mast, mid winter, to change batteries. Did not see the manual mention the use of Advanced Lithium Batteries, that give long life & can operate in winter's cold. Display: is colour, but so far the only colour I've seen is the "Orange" Sun icon. Every thing else is a nice clear whitish on a background of blue-green-teal-gray."

Poor quality control

Pros: clear display units
Cons: poor battery replacement design
"Purchased unit only to have it arrive with a defective display (icons had slipped out of their proper location into an adjacent part of the display). Returned it for a second unit. Set it up on the garage only to have the outdoor temperature display fail after 6 hours. All other display units performed properly.
The battery replacement procedure for the outdoor units is not well designed. You need a precision screwdriver set to replace the wind/outdoor temp sensor batteries. I imagine a fun job at winter temps!"

Bad qualitty control

"Product was defective from the begining. Ordered a second only to find it in worse condition then the first one. I called the manfacturer and was told they have a defect in the product. They said to send it to them for a replacement that was working. No guarantee if I ordered a third one from Costco that it would work. Took both back for a full refund"
