Initially bought another la crosse weather station, did not work right out of the box, touch screen would not respond, so I returned it and bought this weather channel weather station. I did not realize it was also la crosse when I bought it, otherwise I would not have. After about a month, the top right corner of the led screen went black. As this only shows the date, I was willing to deal with it. Then a month later, the signal from the remote wouldn't be detected by the base unit even after changing batteries in both pieces. So basically the unit is useless and going in the garbage. Sierra trading post should stop selling this garbage. Do not buy this model or even brand

Not worth the time to try and set this thing up. It would be fine if it were truly wireless, it is not. The cable connecting the annanometer to the wireless hygrometer/thermometer is probably 100' long. What to do with all of the extra 95' of cable if you only need 5'? I wasted more time than I care to admit trying to shorten the cable and splice it together to a workable length, all to no avail. The appropriate place for this is the landfill where the one that I bought is headed.

item claims to be wireless when in fact there is a wire that connects the two outside pieces wind meter and sending unit also I've only had for 5 days but the unit flatlines when it gets cold outside even though it claims to be good down to -40 Contacted lacrosse support [which you can only do via email and they say they'll get back to you in 5 days or so they say they are very busy. it has now been 4 days and no word yet so i am going to wait and see if they have any magic answer but not very impressed so far

I had to return it . The connecting cabel between the wind sensor & transmitter did not make a good connection and the wind guage and wind chill portion of the receiver could not give a reading. Otherwise the reciever functioned O.K. with the information it provides. One note ,however, the station does not give you the current conditions such as cloudy, rainy day ,sunny etc. Instead, it trys to predict the forthcoming weather. My station predicted rain 3 days in advance although some days were bright with few clouds. It did rain ,however.

This item is a gift to a family member that has not yet been given. So I can't rate the product. But I can rate the STP service. The order was processed accurately and promptly. It arrived on schedule, well packaged. Rating for service is five stars. Product rating will have to come after the gift is opened by recipient.

This was a birthday gift for my husband. He loves it!! It was easy to set up. Contrary to another review, it is actually wireless. There is a "phone cord" that connects the wind meter and the hygrometer only. The display unit is wireless. So there is no having to feed a cord through a window, etc... We live in Colorado where the weather can change in a matter of minutes and it has been really fun watching our weather station in action!!!

I bought this weather station for my husband to use at our lake house. The wind blows there all the time and with the wind gauge, this was the perfect weather station. It was easy to install. The gauge has a 300 ft. wireless range so it wasn't an issue to put the wind gauge on the dock and have an accurate reading in the living room of the house. The only issue of concern is the battery life - we will wait to see how long they will last. Our old unit with without the wind gauge only needed batteries about twice a year. Love it so far!
