I have had several Davis units in the past and had trouble with the outside wind speed unit,so I thought I would try a different mfg. The WS-5300 unit came in 3 days, packed well and in good condition. Installation instructions were good and in a very short time I had it installed and working. This is my first wireless unit and really enjoy being able to place the receiving part anywhere I want to. So far I would recommend it to anyone that wants a moderately priced unit. The only thing I miss from my old unit is not being able to tell what time the min/max was reached.

Update: Combating birds!
The rain collector, being the highest point on the roof, is a bird magnet.. Conveniently for the birds, when they perch on the rain collector it also serves as a perfect toilet.. I was having to clean it all the time. So I decided to fight back. I attached a perch to the pole which is higher than the collector. Second, I attached punji sticks all around the collector close enough together as to (hopefully) discourage the birds. We shall see..

Assembly consists of popping on the wind cups and installing the batteries. The display is fairly easy to set up and calibrate. Since there is no pressure sensor there isn't much to it. I have a mechanical rain gauge and it agrees well (so far) with this electronic tipping bucket. The temperature/humidity sensor seems reasonable if not just a bit high. I used an old satellite dish roof mount to mount it on the roof of my shop and it went up just fine.

The only cons so far are the mounting pole (crooked and seems too small), and the mounting hardware which consists of 2 hose clamps (hardly sufficient for long term installations).

The other thing I am skeptical about is the design of the rain collector. It is a shallow and rather small cone and I am wondering if it will be accurate in a heavy rain in high wind. Seems like the rain will not collect well but have not had a heavy rain yet to test that theory.

Overall, for the price it seems like a pretty capable and uncomplicated device. And it works too!

UPDATE: OK, had the big rain event and as I suspected, it was wrong on the rain total. Rain tube about 50 yards away measured 5.2 inches, this one said 4.41 inches. Dropping it one star, but I still like it and would get it again. Have had no issues with it after about a month.

Just in time for a trial run with Issac bearing down on us in Flordia. The Weather Station arrived early than scheduled, took it out of the box, mounted it on a 20ft pole on my boat dock 150ft from the house - turned it on - and it worked perfectly. Thankfully we didn't take the brunt of the storm but still had fair amounts of high wind gusts and rain which I was able to record with my new weather station. Its has been working perfectly ever since I installed it, trial-by-fire as they say, and it passed with flying colors.

What more could you ask for? For the price this little Weather Station does it all. I have validated the readings with a hygrometer (Relative Humidity) and a mercury thermometer and they are well within specs (+-2 for Temp and +-5% Humidity). The wireless range of the station I have tested is well in excess of 100 feet. The specs say within 300 feet. I am very pleased with what it does. I just wanted a simple weather station that works and is reliable. I have had this for over 30 days without a hitch. The book does recommend Lithium AA batteries for the sensor/transmitter. That is just a no-brainer if you want a reliable long life solution. I highly recommend this weather station for the price, easy setup and reliable data it provides.

This is a good weather station which lets us see in our home the conditions outside. The only complaint I have is that while it does record rainfall, if you want an accurate record you have to buy a rain calibration unit separate. Other than that we are happy wi this unit

This weather station was purchased as a gift for my 88 year old mother. She enjoys knowing the temperature outside but even more importantly likes to know the wind speed. The set up was quick and easy. The directions for programing the monitor very clear. There is a clear readout of the outside and inside temperature and humidity as well as windspeed, direction and amount of rainfall. We would definitely purchase this product again. The nicest part was the speed at which Amazon shipped the gift to her.
