I bought a Model WS-7017U-IT Thermometer/Weather Station on 10/6/2009 from Amazon.com and I love it... When it works, that is!

It looks great. The setup was a snap. I'm using two remote temperature sensors with it. One is on my covered porch and one is in the crawl space under my house. The temperature readings on the base and from the two remotes appear to be quite accurate. I had them all sitting together on my desk for awhile and all the temps were within a degree of each other, (the read-out is in tenths of a degree). The radio range of the remotes is good, too. For a test, I took one way out to the corner of my back yard and it stayed in touch with the base. Also the radio-controlled time setting function worked well and synchronized with Fort Collins within an hour or so. Even the weather forecast indicator (barometer?) on the base is reasonably accurate.

It locked up the first time on 11/1/2009, at 2:00 AM on Sunday morning at the moment Daylight Savings Time ended for the year. I woke up in the morning and the weather station's clock said 2:00 AM. I tried pushing every button but the base didn't respond. Every indicator on the display was visible, but it was locked at 2:00 AM and it showed the temps from that time. The only remedy I could find in the user manual was to remove the batteries from all units and replace them in proper sequence, preferably with brand new batteries.

I brought in my two remote temp sensors (crawling under my house to retrieve the one in the crawl space), and re-set all the units. I put in fresh AA batteries just for good measure, even though the existing batteries were only a month old. I decided to give the thing another chance before seeking technical support.

I purchased one of these at a deep discount at a local store, and it works pretty well aside from one obnoxious issue: if you have it set to automatically sync the time to the atomic clock, the unit sometimes freezes at midnight, and the only way to unfreeze it is to remove the batteries from it and from the outdoor wireless sensors to "reboot" the system. Read on...

When you power up the system for the first time (or after it freezes up), you have to follow a strict procedure: First, make sure all batteries are removed for 60 seconds. Then insert the batteries into the first temperature sensor, then within 30 seconds, insert the batteries into the base unit. If you have additional sensors which I do, as soon as the signal is detected, you have to insert the batteries into the additional sensors within 10 seconds of the previous one. If there are any transmission problems, you have to take out all of the batteries and start over.

You can see how annoying this is to have to do when the unit freezes up on you. I live only an hour or so away from the atomic clock in Boulder that this unit uses to sync the time with, so I'm not sure what the problem is. I found that the only way to avoid the periodic freeze-up of the unit is to turn OFF the setting to automatically sync the time. Others on the web have the same issue, and tech support did not offer me any solutions that worked until I found the solution on my own. I wish the unit would be able to just skip around the issue and continue to work as normal... if it can't find the atomic clock signal for some reason, just skip the sync and continue to operate... no reason to completely freeze up!

Other than that, the unit performs well.

I have had the unit for a year now. It has always been temperamental on telling the correct time and getting a good signal from the remote units. It is a hassle to always have to pull batteries, etc. and go through the procedure to try to get a good connection when it drops. I use rechargeable batteries for everything, and it would have been nice to know that it only works properly with brand new alkaline batteries. Everything else I own works fine with rechargeable batteries. The humidity sensing just went awol and constantly reads 90 percent (which is wrong verified by two other units). I looked at their warranty language and I am ready for a hassle to get it repaired if I can find the receipt (it was a gift)...

** Be Sure to Read Comment #3 below.**

1st ... This is my second La Crosse weather system. The first was the "Best present ever" according to my husband (aka scrooge) - an individual who always states he wants/needs nothing! The 1st one functioned perfectly for 3+ yrs from until its untimely death triggered by battery replacement!! (More on this later).

2nd ... I was looking to replace a wall mounted unit that could be seen/read from 8-10ft away. I'm not sure how I overlooked the true size of this model but, this is SMALL. This size is perfect for someone looking for a desk/tabletop version - it has a very small footprint. It is ridiculous if you're looking for a wall mount that can be read at distances EXCEEDING 2-3ft away.

Actual dimensions of the weather station itself are as follows:
Overall: 4" wide, 9 1/8" tall (with stand), 8 5/8 tall (without stand)
DISPLAY (Most Important): 1 1/2" Wide, 4" Tall, *The information displayed ranges from
3/8" tall (temperature/humity readings)to 5/8" tall (time & date display).

3rd ... It is CRITICAL than you completely read the manual before doing anything. There are implied warnings for the ?simple? "Install the batteries" procedure. If you are like many people, you MAY assume you can install the batteries and then, follow the steps for 'programming/setup' in the booklet. DON'T. Installing (or replacing) the batteries has to be done in a defined sequence and, within a specific time.

These units are very sensitive - too sensitive in my opinion.

La Crosse advised that our previous unit likely died because we Only replaced the batteries in the remote sensor. After a day or two, when display still had not reset we replaced the batteries in the weather station.
