Honeywell TE653ELW Portable Barometric Weather Forecaster
Hideki TE653ELW Complete Weather Station/Forecaster with Atomic Clock, Indoor/Outdoor Temperature, Humidity & Barometric Pressure
UPDATE 09/2013 (three years use): Please do yourself the favor of using lithium batteries to power both the main unit and the remote. Many quirky issues disappear entirely, and the batteries last over a year (in my case), and yes, I use the backlight a lot. Remote lith batteries are over 24mo and counting, no disconnects or drops, lowest recorded temp -18 deg F (and lets face it, anything below -10 is 'honey, we don't need it that bad).
UPDATE 12/2015 (five years): Still going strong, both unit and remotes. The Honeywell (no longer offered) drinks batteries, the Meade is still on the same set from two years ago. Good luck!
First Impression, I was disappointed at the size of the unit. It just looked like it would be bigger than it was from the pictures. You will not be able to easily see the details on the display if it isn't within 3-4 feet. It would work well on a desk, but not so good for wall mounting and viewing from a distance. It's a lot like my home thermostat digital control. I can kind-of see it from a distance, but you really need to be up close for you to see what's really going on.
The remote unit has a small LCD display that shows temp and humidity, so it's handy to place it outside where you can see it, There are four small screws holding the battery cover on, with a rubber seal as well. So that was good.
I installed batteries in the "base" and the remote unit. They connected quickly, but the remote temp was always off by several degrees and humidity was off too. Even if they were sitting next to each other in the same room. I checked the readings with my older AcuRite 00973-RX that I use in the office, and the remote was showing the same values. I'm guessing the "base" was off.
The controls were funky, most of these units are a little weird in that way (Including my AcuRite), but not too big of a problem.
The biggest problem is that the Atomic Clock never set the time. I tried different locations inside and outside of the house and nothing. After a few days I gave up. Just as a test, I pulled the batteries from my AcuRite and re-set it to see how long it took to re-sync the time. Less than 10 mins later, it was updated.
I can't say anything bad about the outside remote.Read more ›
Patience is a good thing with this device. Reading the instructions helps to set your expectations. For example, the automatic clock setting function happens three times in the middle of the night because the radio reception is better then. Given this information, I decided to manually set the clock to keep it from trying during day, which would not be good unless you live close to Colorado, where the transmitter is. Sometimes the connection to the outside sensor goes away, and you don't get a reading for a while. I am guessing this is because of radio interference at the time the connection is made. Since the outside sensor is only read every few minutes (not continuously) patience is again a virtue, because it does come back a few minutes later.
In a normally lit room, the display is fine from a few feet away. In a dimly lit room, not so much, and the back light is really only good when the room is dark.Read more ›

The display is hard to read from a distance. I would prefer a display that is brighter and larger digits. I would not recommend the product.Published 1 month ago by Richard Arroyo
