Everything works except for a glitch in the sunrise and sunset times. My unit shows the times to be an hour earlier than what they should be. After talking to an Ambient technician, it seems that if the remote unit can not pick up a radio time signal, the sunrise and sunset times are off by an hour. This is a minor consideration for me because I bought it to know the outdoor temperature. The people I talked to at Ambient were very knowledgeable and friendly. They gave me quite a bit of time over the phone making sure that I set everything up properly. They were very apologetic and shipped me a new unit with a postage paid return for the original unit. Unfortunately, the replacement unit was damaged in transit. I ended up keeping the original unit and returning the replacement. All in all, I am happy with it. The temperature, barometric pressure and relative humidity seem to be accurate.

ADDENDUM 5/26/2013: The outdoor unit that reports the time, temperature, humidity and barometric pressure stopped working three days ago. I tried replacing the batteries, but the display screen is out. The indoor unit is not receiving anything from the outdoor unit. In less than a month, 1) The indoor unit did not work correctly; 2) The replacement indoor unit never worked; 3) and now the outdoor unit stopped working. This product is totally useless to me now. It's time to give another company a chance.

ADDENDUM 6/7/2013: Since 5/26, the Ambient people contacted me, and without me asking, sent me a new indoor unit and a new outdoor unit. I received them last night and set them up this afternoon. Everything on both units is working perfectly so far. The sunrise sunset times are correct. I do not anticipate any problems, but if there should be one, I will update this review.

This is a good weather clock, or rather it will be. One of the features I liked about it was the fact that it could tell me sunrise/sunset times. However, when I received the unit and began setting it up, I discovered a problem in the firmware that would not allow for the correct entry of my longitude/latitude. I contacted Ambient Weather and explained to them what I had found. They confirmed the error. They then apologized to me for doubting the issue, and offered me a replacement once they have corrected the problem. They haven't brought it back onto the market, so it hasn't been corrected yet (they stated it would be 3 months) but I have no reason to suspect they will not make right on their promise.

Other than that, it's a great weather clock.

8/8/2012 Update - In much less than the 3 month time period, I received a replacement unit that has been fixed. The firmware now allows for the correct input of longitude/latitude and sunrise/sunset times now match what the NOAA website calculates for my location. I've bumped the review from 3 to 5 stars because it's now exactly what I expected and the company made it right.

Never could find this in stock anywhere. E-mailed the manufacture and was informed that it was pulled to fix a problem which required a firmware update. They got back to me a few months later and informed me it was again available. I can not tell you how much I like this weather station. It is laid out just right, easy to read with all the info you could need and is very east to set up. I liked it so much, I brought another one. No Problems So Far. Great customer service also.

After only four days I may be premature but the subject is the conclusion.

Complaints about accuracy I can't argue as the +/- accuracy is given. As the temp and Rh can be adjusted I took both units outside for a hour and then adjusted the indoor to match the outdoor. This way if I ever have a more accurate outdoor measure of them I know to adjust both by the same amount. I can get both from a good site, University of South Florida, USF, only two miles away but not on an instantaneous basis so a fraction different is to be expected on top of the local micro-climate.

What I did not expect was the top display of weather changes to be much more than a gimmick. But it has been giving predictions consistent with events. I didn't care because this is Florida and summer and if it is 4pm it is going to rain. The barometric pressure history reading appeared to be erratic and reset itself at first but now appears to properly report the history.

I got this to replace a simple indoor/outdoor temperature only gadget that quit working. I decided on this simply as the most features for the buck and not many more bucks than a minimal replacement. Frankly I could care less about the phase of the moon but for $3 more why not?

I have not assessed the value of dew point as a measurement of mugginess as yet.

At this point it is still just a fun gadget. But since we are just avoiding sticking our noses out or calling up a local weather website what else can it be?

But since it does appear to do what it claims beyond good enough for government work I may be able to figure out an issue from the previous two cheap temperature only devices.
