While I have only had this a few days, it is clear the bar has been raised on home weather stations. It certainly costs more than the glut of other home units, but this is a case of getting what you pay for. The set up was easy, though picking the best location requires some thought. I did not want our unit on the roof, since we have no flat surface and the unit does require some periodic maintenance, cleaning the rain gauge trap, dusting off the spiders etc. Once we determined the best location, the top of a fence in our garden, it took about ten minutes to mount. The distance to the console is approximately 50 yards, with several walls between, and the reception is perfect. The console is easy to read and once you get into the well written manual, you have access to information previously only available to professional weather units. I have found all the gauges and sensors to work flawlessly and in a few days, the accumulation of information has been impressive, with trends emerging backed by data. For the home weather enthusiast, this is the best toy I've received. The console even informed me of the lunar eclipse tonight in the Eastern Hemisphere. I've also found the people at Davis to be friendly and helpful. They are justifiably proud of their products, but the new Vantage Vue is a major step toward a relatively affordable, yet comprehensive package for those of us who are weather enthusiasts. I live in a wilderness coastal environment with complex eco-systems, micro climates, and changes that can occur quickly. The Vantage Vue keeps me informed of any change, warns me of potential problems, tracks the evolution of an event with accuracy and then stores it for future reference.Read more ›

The Davis Vantage Vue Weather Station is a new model from this U.S. company that builds high-end stations. The Vantage Vue is the low end of their products, but is still far above the competition in quality and features. I bought this one to replace another weather station that, although I've had it for several years, had never been very satisfactory. When the wind gauge worked, the rain gauge wouldn't. The wireless transmitter wouldn't send signals through an exterior wall to the console, so I had to hard-wire them together. The software connection in my computer was a poor database.
When I got a new computer, I no longer had the required serial port for the old station, and since the anemometer, wind-direction and rain gauge had long since quit working, it was time to replace it with a better system.
The vantage Vue checks wind velocity and direction, temperature, rain-fall, humidity and barometric pressure like most weather stations. This one also calculates wind chill, heat index, heating and cooling degree-days, moon phase, 12-hour forecast, and several other functions, and displays them on an easy-to-read display. It works wirelessly so well, that I tested it by carrying the console 100 yards from the house and could still easily get transmissions from the sensor suite. The Station comes with well-written manuals that are easy to understand. Installation was pretty simple and without any complications. I highly recommend this unit for serious weather-watchers.

You will find that most of the positive, glowing reviews for these systems are written by people who have had the system up and running for a month or two, in a few cases maybe 2 years. It is after this point that major problems typically develop.

This is second Davis System I purchased which failed after just a few years of use. The first was the Vantage Pro Wireless. The latest was the Vantage Vue Wireless.

In each case, the battery would be instantly drained by the Davis unit. Unfortunately this is not an uncommon complaint with Davis systems, as you will see if you check weather enthusiast forums. Sometimes a replacement battery might work for a few days, sometimes it will only work for an hour or two. Then it simply gets drained to zero power. The system will continue to function during the day thanks to the solar panel, but you will have no readings once the sun sets.

After the first unit died 2 years ago, I contacted Davis and was told the main board would have to be replaced. The cost of replacement was nearly as much as the unit itself. So I decided to roll the dice and purchase a Vue Wireless. Two years later, and I am in the same boat. Interestingly enough, Davis now claims they can't find my name or warranty information, even though I have now purchased two units from them, bought a repeater unit, and gone around with them on the Vantage Pro wireless battery issue. Something about them having no record of my repeat business with them simply rubs me the wrong way.

As for accuracy - the temperature was pretty accurate except for very hot days in direct sunlight in light winds. In these cases, the temperature would spike by 1.5-2.0 degrees F very quickly, leading to a false high reading.

I have had many weather systems. Also many brands. This is the 1st one that gives you wind speed and direction every 2 1/2 sec. All the other systems I have had over the years gives you the wind gusts 2 mins. after you have heard and felt it. This is my first Davis unit and I find no other reason to go to the other brands. The old saying you get what you pay for is true. This unit is more than most units on the market but IT WORKS perfect. It is worth the extra money. All functions of this system work perfect. After all the weather stations that I have had over the years, this one I would rate a 6 star if they had that high of a rating.
