If you are looking for an weather station with lot's of bells and whistles then keep looking. Although if you want a excellent basic unit this one fits the bill. We were looking to replace a older weather station that had died and really just wanted the inside and outside temperature. Not interested in the date, time, humidity, etc. This was very easy to setup and I compared the temperature with our current unit and it was very accurate. You can set the unit to toggle between indoor temperature and time if you want. One of the great things I like about this unit is the size of the numbers displaying the outside temperature, it is easy to spot from a distance. As a added benefit, it has a solar panel to extend the life of your batteries. We have another Oregon Scientific unit upstairs that the transmitter had recently died, it was able to pickup the signal from the new transmitter positioned at least 100ft away through 90 year old stucco walls and brick. I really haven't found any weak points to this unit. Just keep in mind that it is a basic unit, don't expect it to have features that are not included. If you want the added features then select a higher end model.

Update 11-21-11
The sensor unit is defective since it will not deactivate the ice alert function. According to the instructions this can be accomplished by selecting channel 2 or channel 3. Tried both channels neither would deactivate it.

Update 1-14-13
Other than the ice alert issue which is more of a nuisance than anything else, this unit(both receiver and sensor) is still working perfectly.

The unit seems to work fine - except that the battery power on the transmitter fades pretty quickly when it gets below freezing, and it loses contact with the base until I bring the transmitter back in to warm up again. This would probably be a perfectly good unit if you live somewhere warm, but having to keep the remote inside (where the base station already is) kinda defeats the purpose.

I have found that the distance is affected by what siding and what is in the wall. I found that at 10 feet it works quite well and battery life is good. It did take some time to learn how to get it to sync. since then it has worked flawlessly for almost a year. the temperature reading is within 2 degrees of a wired one.

I just wanted a simple temperature gauge and I got it! It is a nice small unit that shows the temperature in large numbers.

Although I cannot say I liked this product, it was not the fault of anyone. THis product was just defective. The supplier was so generous about taking care of the problem. I would not hesitate to purchase again; because of the great service.
