I was looking for a simple weather station that would give me indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity without excess clutter on the display. I don't need a weather forecast; I have the Internet for that. I don't need half the LCD taken up by some guy wearing a hat and scarf with snowflakes and a little snowman next to him. I already know that when it's cold and snowy I should dress warmly, and that I can build a snowman if I want to.

The other feature I wanted is the ability to see at least the temperature on the remote sensor; not all of these devices have that feature, so I was looking for that specifically. According to the product description, "One remote sensor (TS13C) included." Amazon sells that sensor, and according to both and Meade's website, the TS13C has a little LCD on it with the temperature.

"Perfect!", I thought to myself, having looked at quite a few of these stations. (A large portion of them don't have indoor humidity.) Ordered, received...and discovered that the remote sensor HAS NO LCD. It's actually a TS21 sensor, which is what it's supposed to be according to the manual, so Amazon's product description was incorrect.

The base unit itself is pretty nice. There's no clutter, as mentioned above, just the temperature and humidity in huge text, the time, and a simple "comfort" reading in tiny enough text that I can barely notice it, which is great! The unit is a bit large, but the stated dimensions of 7" wide by 4.8" tall are accurate, so I expected this. Aesthetically, it looks pretty nice; sleek and modern without seeming cheap or tacky. A backlight would be nice too, especially at this price point; some of the cheaper stations do have one, but then again the text is huge so I can read it just fine unless it's extremely dark.

This is the second TE256W I've purchased, having been extremely happy with the first unit I installed in my RV. These units are so slim that wall mounting in just about any location is extremely easy. For the RV, I wanted large numbers in order to see the temperature from various angles in the cab, and a clean look. I researched a lot of competing units prior to finding this one, which fit the need exactly. Like another reviewer, I wanted to prioritize the ease of reading the display, thus not a lot of info clutter I would not be using. Meade's line of weather stations provided a nice set of choices in the data provided, all were very reasonably priced in my mind, and this one fit the bill perfectly. I'm especially keen these days on atomic clocks, not wanting to be constantly resetting the time. I own and operate a multi-thousand dollar NWS certified weather station that is singled out often on the local news stations, and so I care about the fidelity of the data being reported. In comparing the temperature and humidities reported by the TE256W to the significantly more expensive station, the values are very close. This second unit is going into an observatory and I'll instrument the temperature in four different places for an incredibly low price. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the TE256W, and honestly can't come up with a single flaw.

Just what I wanted - a large uncluttered display of indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity. At first I used Eneloop AAA batteries in the remote, which worked fine for 5 days, then outdoor data quit being displayed. After wasting a lot of time moving the remote around and fiddling with the search function, I thought that perhaps the Eneloop batteries voltage of 1.3 per cell was too low. So, I put in fresh alkalines - but, same story - no outdoor display. As I was getting ready to send the unit back, I remembered that I had some AAA lithium batteries. I put those in, and, voila, it now works, and is still going strong after 8 days. Fresh alkalines run 1.5 volts; lithiums 1.7 volts. Lithium batteries are expensive, but last a loooooong time.

There are two big problems with this device. First, the display is black digits against a dark background, with a lot of reflection glare, so it is hard to read unless you look at it from just the right angle. The actual appearance is not like the photos shown in the ads -- in actuality, the background is much darker than as shown in the pictures. You have to have it so that you are looking a little up at it, and not from either side. You could hang it a little above eye level on a wall; but if it is on a desktop you cannot read it from most angles because you are looking down on it. If you do have a place where it can be oriented satisfactorily, it does have large legible digits. The outside temperature and humidity are on top, and the inside temperature and humidity are on the bottom left, and the time and day-of-week is on the bottom right. You have to press a series of buttons to get it to display the calendar date.

The second big problem is that the time radio signal receiver is very weak. I have a basic (and inexpensive) "atomic clock" mechanism that I put into a clock when the original mechanism wore out, and it receives the time signal all over my house; but this Meade product only gets the signal in small areas around just 4 windows in my house -- it gets no signal in most of my (basic wood frame) house. I tested it next to my other "atomic clock" mechanism in many places, and it got no signal almost everywhere, although my other one did. Indeed, I have it now where I can see it, but it is not in a practical place and it still does not get the WWV time signal -- I just set the clock by hand, and hope the thing keeps pretty good time on its own until the battery runs down. So far, it has kept pretty good time without the WWV signal.
