5.0 out of 5 stars A fine piece of equipment
A very attractive device. It's not science or lab quality but then it wasn't supposed to be. When shopping, I wanted to know if the thermometer had a celsius scale and the barometer included mm/hg or hectopascals (same thing). Looking at the product description indicated that it had while the attached picture looked like it was in English units only. I took the gamble and...

1.0 out of 5 stars I'm returning it!
Clearly designed for people who like shiny things, whether they work or not! Thermometer reads low by 10 to 15 F; the barometer was adjustable but the marker needle (to show what the pressure was previously) fell off! And, the humidistat reads low by 30+%. Mechanical junk.

A very attractive device. It's not science or lab quality but then it wasn't supposed to be. When shopping, I wanted to know if the thermometer had a celsius scale and the barometer included mm/hg or hectopascals (same thing). Looking at the product description indicated that it had while the attached picture looked like it was in English units only. I took the gamble and it was as I wanted it to be except for one quibble. The metric numbers are on the inside scales and hard to read. Even so, it is a convenient device and the calibration compares favorably with other devices I use. And it looks good hanging on the wall. Delivery was timely and it arrived through USPS and the military postal system in good condition. In my opinion, it was worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!, December 15, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ambient Weather WS-GL032 Porthole Collection Weather Center with Thermometer, Hygrometer, Barometer (Misc.)
It came packaged well-protected and very secure. This weather station is a tasteful work of art - a beautiful addition to our decor, and it appears quite accurate. Barometer needed adjustment for altitude, but now is consistent with local weather reports. This is a quality product I recommend to anyone with an eye for quality. This is a great value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Plastic Plastic Plastic, March 25, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ambient Weather WS-GL032 Porthole Collection Weather Center with Thermometer, Hygrometer, Barometer (Misc.)
For something that costs almost $100, I expected wood. It's molded plastic. Ugh.

I'd say that it's worth about a third of the value at which it is listed. It's hung on my wall now and every time that I pass by it I scowl. I may try and dump it on Ebay; more likely giving it away or throwing it out.

I should have returned it but got busy with work and the window closed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice product overall except a few install issues, November 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ambient Weather WS-GL032 Porthole Collection Weather Center with Thermometer, Hygrometer, Barometer (Misc.)
Nice product overall except a few issues :
- the screws on the front are a bit too big and look cheap but you don't see it in the front view.
- the printed manual that comes with it didn't contain the right pages (they sent twice the last one and not the middle one, so information about calibration are missing...)
- they don't send you the screw to install it on your wall, you have to find it and buy it separately

Looks nice on the wall and the instruments seem to be accurate, but are hard to see unless you are up close.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor User Manual, June 8, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ambient Weather WS-GL032 Porthole Collection Weather Center with Thermometer, Hygrometer, Barometer (Misc.)
The system looks great and has a quality feel. The user manual is somewhat hard to understand and is full of misspellings and grammatical errors.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, January 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ambient Weather WS-GL032 Porthole Collection Weather Center with Thermometer, Hygrometer, Barometer (Misc.)
Real pretty, but doesn't even register the correct temperature.
I would return it, but I've waited to long.
Guess I'm stuck with a pretty thing to hang on the wall!
