Sample Positive Reviews
I have simply had zero problems with this weather station. I followed the directions to a tee and had no problems setting it up or synchronizing the sensors. Was able to set up the display with the PC, and everything is working flawlessly wirelessly. The PC software really makes this weather station more enjoyable.
I love this weather station. Only problem I've had is the time is takes to communicate with my computer seems slow at times, but other than that is was easy to set up and is accurate.
Sample Negative Reviews
The wind sensor stopped working after only 3 days. If you're going to purchase this weather station, make sure you test it before you spend hours setting it up or bolting it down to anything.
I am now on my second WS-2812U-IT. With the first one, anemometer stopped working after two days. With the second one, the anemometer never worked at all.
