After reviewing a lot of products, I chose this one and was excited to recieve it, but...it was one step away from a nightmare to sei up! The manual is downloaded from a disk to your computer. After single page printout, you have a LOT of pages to go through. That isn't so bad, but the instructions are confusing, complicated and aren't really clear.

I called the compsny and had to call several times after getting put into one mailbox after another and noone called back....their Tech Support ISN'T there!

Finally got the switchboard operator to track someone down. This guy had the manual in one hand and the phone in the other; no better than me!

I got another guy and he walked me through some issues.

Product build is very good, material, layout, etc., but the barometric feature is slow to respond and inaccurate, certainly unreliable. (I'm not new to meteorology, have Davis and just about everything else.)

Annemometer is good, compass, temperature and humidity. Graphing is a very nice feature and works well. Bottom line; well-built, quality parts, barometric section doesn't respond well enough and that sorta throws off the forecasting and turns away someone looking for accuracy and reliability. Mix in very poor customer service and I can't rate it more than I have. Maybe I should've gotten the next model up...?

This model was released in 2003 and Amazon started giving it away for under $100 recently. For that price, it does everything you expect it to do. The menu system is simple but takes a bit getting used to. The contours are like a continuous mathematical function without surprises or sharp edges and the extra clip on lanyard is quite good too.

I use a Garmin 60CSx and compared its altimeter to Brunton ADC Pro's. My calibration was at a shipyard: set both devices to measure 1M above sea level, and stayed there to see how they report after some time.

The Garmin altimeter jumped as much at +/- 5 meters within 2 minutes while the ADC continued reporting 1M, and sometimes 2M for few seconds. Then I continued walking to a spot of different elevation, known to be 12M. The Garmin totally flipped out and the error difference increased to +8M, while ADC reported the altitude correctly (12-13M). The first unit I purchased was out of control when altitude was concerned, Amazon shipped a new one that seems very accurate.

(Update June 24, 2009). The second Brunton sent by Amazon was accurate but its Reset button died out when DST change occurred. After returning it again I finally got one that seems to work properly (nice people at Amazon). On the date/time issue there might be another minor bug undiscovered by me: the data logging seems to suggest that ADC is programmed with 2003's DST settings which might not be accurate anymore.

Brunton forgets to mention that its impeller is magnetic and one of its blades is painted red to identify magnetic north (for use as a compass). It seems that ADC measures wind speed by the current generated when the fan blades move i.e. their logic is: measure how fast the magnetic flux is changing and translate that into wind speed.

I bought this mainly for the barometer and anemomter features to have along for fishing and hunting trips. Both of these features work very well, as well as the hygrometer. The unit shows these in real time, tracks changes and records minimum and maximum events.

The only feature that doesn't work well is the altimeter. I don't know what theory or system is used but it isn't accurate, at least not on my unit. I can be sitting in the same place and watch the altitude go up and down without moving it. It's very seldom that it remains stable. I can understand some fluctuation +/- a couple of feet but it goes beyond that. Since the altimeter wasn't an important feature for me it's not a bother.

The unit seems to be made well and hopefully proves to be reasonably durable, which I think it will. It's a bit pricey but I got a better deal on Amazon than I found anywhere else. All in all it's not a bad little unit.

It does everything I need it to do.

I use it to collect data during test periods, and while it's not highly accurate (i.e. you can't get it NIST certified), it does what I need it to do. I then use the USB/infrared port data connector to download the data from the device to my laptop.

I also monitor temperature and pressure while on air flights and in conference rooms. It helps when instead of saying "I'm cold" you can say "can we turn down the AC: it's 65F in here!"

It's great on hikes - monitor elevation gain as well as temperature and wind speeds. The built in compass is small, but it works. So should help if you get lost, too.

One downside - the temperature response is slow. You need to leave it in an area for at least 10 minutes to get a real temperature reading. But, you can watch the built in trends to see if you've leveled out yet, too, which is helpful.

The product does mainly what it claims, and it does it well. However, there are a few niggles. Firstly, it emits a beep every time it logs a data point, and there is no way to turn this off. Secondly, it NEEDS a Brunton IR-dongle to download logs - the IrDA standard is not supported. And there are no drivers for the IR-dongle on 64-bit Vista. Thirdly, the log file format isn't documented anywhere, so there is no good way to import the information into your own application for further processing. These nits aside, the product is good. I use mine a lot, and I'm very happy with it.
