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.
