Cons/troubles - Wind vein squeaked at a certain point of every revolution right out of the box, which doesn't give me much confidence in it's longevity or accuracy as time/wear goes on...I don't know yet if Acurite will do anything about it. Rain gauge was WAY off calibration right out of the box. I opted not to follow their silly calibration procedure...get serious...who wants to try to get exactly 8 oz of water to drip evenly over a 20 to 30 minute time frame to see if the gauge reads 1.06" rain? And then when it doesn't read 1.06", then adjust screws and start over and repeat process who knows how many times until it is accurate? MY PROCESS....install a manual rain gauge within a few feet, compare manual gauge to weather station gauge after each rain event for several events and adjust calibration screws accordingly until both gauges match. The more rain that falls in the event the easier it is to calibrate. I had to turn each screw 1 and 3/4 turns ccw to get close to accurate, waiting now for a big rain to make final adjustments. I was also a little disappointed in the range of the signal from the weather station to the monitor... at about 125 feet it lost signal and I had to move it into a room with a more line-of-sight position that puts it about 85 feet from the weather station. ADMITTEDLY, the house has a metal roof and metal siding which I'm sure greatly inhibited the signal.
All in all, pleased for the most part. 3 STAR RATING because of the out of the box squeak in the anemometer and gross inaccuracy of an instrument that is supposed to be not just *accurate* but "Acu-Rite."
The first shipment I received came with a defective display that would not show the correct wind speed. It read "0" most of the time and only reached 2 mph on a windy day. Amazon replaced it with another one and while the new one displayed wind speed and other info, it was also defective because it would not allow me to calibrate it like it was supposed to. I have calibrated my old one easily in the past so I'm familiar with the procedure. After trying over and over I asked Amazon to send me another replacement - my third one. I was disappointed that this display would also not enter the calibration mode. Three displays - all defective. I contacted Acurite's support with my problem and they had no solution - they just told me to repeat what I had already tried, then to do a factory reset and repeat what I had already done unsuccessfully several times.and then suggested that I needed better batteries although the display is plug-in, not battery operated (the batteries are for backup during a power failure). My old display will enter calibration mode with no batteries installed whatsoever.
So, I returned the third weather station and have decided that I will keep my defective dark display because I prefer it to the white display which is calibrated but too bright. It appears that this dark display is not able to be calibrated so I will mentally subtract the "always too warm inside temperature" that all uncalibrated four displays show as 2 degrees warmer than the room because of the display's warmth and accept my fate. The outdoor temps are also always too warm whenever the sun is shining despite the solar powered fan that is supposed to correct this but this discrepancy varies during the day as the sun moves across the sky so calibration wouldn't solve it entirely. Also, none of my Acurite weather stations have ever shown the correct wind speed - I've experienced several wind storms that the weather service said were over 50 mph and my display has never exceeded 24 mph.
I am disappointed with Acurite for their lack of quality control but I could not be happier with Amazon for it's superior customer service. This whole debacle has cost Amazon lots of money for free shipping both ways and the returns process that this involved. I doubt that any local retailer would have been as understanding as Amazon has been during this ordeal. Hats off (as usual) to Amazon. 10 STARS for them.
