Once you get this going it's pretty good:

PROS: Indoor and outdoor temp and humidity; big clear display that lights up; small solar panel on indoor unit extends the battery life; weather forecasting function is surprisingly accurate; clock sets itself.

CONS: It can be a pain to get the outdoor unit working with the indoor unit; every time it needs a new battery you have to reset everything all over again; radio range of the outdoor until is nowhere near the 100 feet it states in the manual -- I had to put the outdoor unit directly outside my window and the indoor unit near the window for it to work; clock only sets itself once a day; inconsistent temp and humidity (put the indoor and outdoor unit directly next to each other and they each give a difference temp and humidity level).

So, when it works it's nice and useful. But it can be frustrating sometimes getting the radio signal to work properly between the two units.

I purchased this to replace a 10 year old unit. The old one was much better, wish it hadn't been discontinued. The range on this is only about 25 feet. It works fine with one remote unit but but will not read a farther one like the old one did. The display is difficult to read from a distance if the light is off. Not totally unhappy with it, but Oregon Scientific has gone backward I their units IMO.

Have only had it a few months, had freezing temps so the light alert DID work. Need to find out how to turn that off or come winter it will be going off all the time. The display is easy to read, the light button is nice and findable in low light situations, the solar charger is charging from the ambient light and sometimes direct light from the window in the house. (the outside monitor is in the shade on the porch) Had an Oregon Scientific monitor for the past 15 years that finally gave up this spring. This is a nice upgrade and hope to use it another 15 years. Comes with one outside monitor, so don't buy a second unless you really need it.

We bought this unit and a THGN132N sensor about 3 years ago. They functioned well together, except that the plastic on the sensor mounting hole cracked and had to be repaired with epoxy. Then one day there was no reading from the sensor. I replaced the battery and reset the sensor but that didn't help. I ordered a new THGR122NX sensor but there still was no reading. I then thought that the base unit was bad, but on the back I discovered a small hole with barely visible writing that said "RESET". I reset the base unit and things started working. The original sensor also started working with the recently revived base unit. So now we have 2 sensors to make temperature and humidity readings with. I put the blame of this saga on very very poorly written instructions.

It's my favorite. I thought the instructions were simple. Change the batteries. Press reset. Wait until the main unit sees the remote. Put the remote back outdoors. It's quite accurate. We love being able to see outdoor and indoor temperature and humidity.

This weather station serves its purpose perfectly - it gives me accurate outdoor and indoor temperatures. Above and beyond it also gives relative humidity. It did not merit 5 stars because its 12hour weather forecasts are seldom even remotely accurate. So if temperature and humidity data are what you want, this is perfect. If you want additional information, look elsewhere. besides weather it has a digital clock that is very easy to set-up, 100% accurate and easy to read.

The instructions are hard to understand. If you read them three or four times it gets a little clearer. It is guess work from there on. I just kept guessing till I got lucky. The product itself is awesome. Not sure about where they want it mounted but it gives clear, concise data and all the functions work. Because of where they want it mounted I am not sure how accurate it is but it gives me a great idea of what to expect on my ranch in the middle of nowhere. Over all I would recommend this product.

I purchased the weather station for $44.99 from Target based on the item's features such as indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity plus its atomic clock synchronization. After carefully following set-up instructions and using new batteries, I immediately noticed several malfunctions: 1) the remote sensor and base unit communicated sporadically even when just a foot apart in the same room; 2) the sensor recorded an outdoor temperature of 71 °F when the actual air temperature was 42 °F; 3) the atomic clock automatically set two hours ahead although the correct Central Time indicator was displayed. Despite manually resetting the clock, the same atomic adjustment reoccurred. After 30 minutes of frustration, I repackaged the item, and I returned it to Target the next day. Thankfully, Target took the item off my hands without any hassle and gave me a full refund. I do not recommend this weather station.
