Unfortunately, the rain gauge just doesn't work well.

The wind speed indicator and rain gauge work ok,however the rain gauge sometimes does't register.

We have followed directions more than once because we set it up in 3 different locations.

We had another weather station, but the anemometer broke (plastic fatigue on the bracket). Since the anemometer was half the price of a new station, I looked around.
This is a true wireless station. Each individual sensor communicates wirelessly to the base station, which means no more stringing wires between sensors that really need to be in different places.
The instructions were easy to follow and setup was quick. The display is much easier to read than the other system.
Overall - very happy with this unit after a few weeks of use.
The only odd part is the "forecast" (the sun/clouds/rain image), which rarely seems to relate to the actual weather anywhere near us, but the sensor readings all seem to be correct and consistent.

July 2, 2014 - update after about a year.
As others have noted, the rain gauge is pretty flaky/useless. Since it doesn't rain much here, not a big deal. The forecast is for somewhere within around "300 miles" and not useful. The anemometer just died last week. A replacement anemometer is $94 on Amazon, while a complete station is $104 (?!?!?!) On the Oregon Scientific site, the WMR86 isn't listed, nor can I find any WMRxxx device with a wind sensor???
So - now just an outside thermometer.

The unit was relatively easy to set up but has some annoying features. For example, the wind gauges needs to point north and cannot be reprogrammed to deal with facing any other direction.

Unfortunately, the rain gauge just doesn't work well. The signal to the base station will be clear for 2-3 days and then will drop off and you will have to disassemble the gauge to reestablish the radio connection. This wouldn't bother me too much if the unit was easy to open but the placement and size of the screws make this a frustrating undertaking. While the rain gauge isn't working I could have the system show the barometric pressure - but it doesn't show the pressure just pressure change over the past 24 hours in a stupid little graph format.

Ultimately, the temperature/humidity is useful but the rest of the unit is useless. Save your money.

At first glance, this looked like what I wanted...good reviews, decent price, great-sounding features. However, after installation and use, you may discover, like me, that it falls short of what one might expect. Here's my summary:

-The temperature min/max reflects the min/max since the last manual RESET. A $20 temperature unit will show the last 36-48 hours and then reset itself.
-The rainfall has a fancy graph showing rainfall in the last 24 hours. Closer examination reveals that the unit stores ONLY the last 24 hours and does not accumulate totals.
-The wind indicator transmits once every minute, showing only that instance of speed. The vane is too flimsy to hold a direction, and spins carelessly around.
-The navigation is item-by-item, making it quite tedious to find details, and moves only in one direction.
-The light is so bright that it makes the display almost unreadable.
-The rain gauge works on a flip-flop measurement, like a see-saw, so unless it "flips," you will not get any measurement transmitted. Light rain will not "flip" the device to reach the minimum .001 measurement, as displayed, requiring more rain to add enough to "flip.".
-The "forecast" feature is seldom accurate, sometimes showing rain, when the sun is shining outside.

The atomic clock is a nice feature. All the transmitters worked from about 100 feet away, going through walls. That said, this weather station seems to be a glorified temperature gauge, which can be bought for $20-$30.

I have seen some of the reviews before buying the WMR86 weather station, they were not favorable too it, but the system was a fathers dad gift and he's no master of electronic devices but can read instructions well and has it up and running and LOVES IT!
It is not a 500 dollar system but it gives them some competition. I thought the range may come into effect, cause my dad has a large property but it is no problem, temp sensor, wind and rain gauge (rain being the farthest, some 60yds from house away from trees) all working great. SO HINT: THOROUGHLY READ INSTRUCTIONS, and you shouldn't have any issues.

Ive had it about two weeks now and am enjoying it. I was skeptical from the other reviews but saw there were plenty of positive ones. Pros-all parts are compact and slick looking, fairly easy to read display when not lit, lots of viewing options, seems accurate enough compared to an analog weather thing amd some online weather checks to just know whats happening in your backyard. Cons-the angle of the viewing screen isnt adjustable like other OS models. Mine sits on a mantle up high so I have had to put a shim under it, I could stand for the numbers to be a bit darker to read when not lit, but it is viewable. Im very happy with it.

Only thing I would change is having temp for indoor and outdoor be on same page, not toggling back and forth between pages.

This unit is cheap and the data it supplies is inaccurate. During the summer, the thermometer was recording temperatures as high as 116 degrees, and it was in a shaded area. My alcohol thermometer, mounted right next to it, was showing 103 degrees. The rain gauge is useless. It has to be cleaned regularly because the birds must think it's a toilet- and it's not mounted anywhere near the trees. It's not accurate at all- sometimes it doesn't record anything- even in downpours. It's all moot now, because a pea sized hail storm demolished the thing. A bucket is more reliable. Now for the anemometer. It didn't work at all when I got it. I took it apart and found a stray glob of solder that apparently was fouling it up. The directions tell you that the unit has to be mounted on the north side of the post, which puts it in a permanent wind shadow, but it's not a real problem because the wind speeds readings can't be trusted. As far as the wind direction, the vane oscillates wildly, even in the lightest breezes.

If you're a weather nerd, like I am, find something else.
