5 stars Easy set up - Works fine
Nice simple design and set up. With adjustment for altitude, tracks local weather station exactly.

3 stars Hard to see Temperature from across the room.
Unfortunately, unless we wall mount the weather station, it is impossible to see the indoor and outdoor temps from across the room. We had to add cupboard buffer dots onto the bottom of the stand at the back in order that the unit stands more upright and we are able to see the temps without having to approach the unit.

5 stars Very pleased.
Wanted a unit that reports temperature and humidity. This does much more.

5 stars Easy to read, accurate
Like it's readability, so far performing well
From Littleton, CO
4 stars Good but not perfect
Great display & quite accurate with the temps. We disable the backlight at nights since it's in our bedroom. However, the backlight still turns on at 4 a.m. every day. We've tried resetting it, but that didn't help. We've gotten used to it coming on at that time so we're going to keep it!!!

5 stars Fairly easy to read
Could not see the big numbers when sitting across the room, about 18'. Then I discovered only way to see them clearly was to change the angle to where it was perfectly flat. I used the snap on stand which pitched the angle at an inappropriate viewing angle. My solution was to put 1/2" pad on the backside of the stand which made the display perfectly flat. I wish someone would make a product using the red LED numbers against a black background. We older people can see these numbers much easier. Overall the unit is very informative and seems to be of good quality.

4 stars Good But Not Perfect
My very old monochrome Acurite gave up the ghost. I'd been so happy with the old one, I decided to buy an Acurite again. It was easy to set up and looks good. However, the LCD screen is susceptible to viewing angle. I used to have the old monochrome unit next to the television, but I could barely see the display with the new color model. It wasn't tilted in such a way that I could read the information - it was very dim. If I set the angle differently, I could use it, but the stand didn't allow me to adjust it. Perhaps a different stand would help. I wound up putting it in a different place. The little forecast window hasn't finished calibrating yet, though it has been two weeks. Frankly, that is the least important part of the unit for me, so it is no big loss. I wish the star rating allowed me to select 4 1/2 stars. It's good, just not perfect.

The barometric pressure Is off. It never makes it to 30.00 in. the weather picture sometimes shows rain, when it is actually sunny outside.

5 stars Pleased with this Station
So far, so good! Attractive display. Hope the outside sensor can take NH winters. Did use lithium batteries.
