From the review that says it's very poor... I can't really argue with that, but let me clarify a few things! I bought this unit as Sam's Club for $39.99 like the other reviewer did. I figured it'd be cheap, and I was right, but I also figured it would meet my simplistic needs.

Out of the box, the setup wasn't too convoluted at all. Install batteries, select the channel on the outdoor transmitter and set the indoor receiver to the same channel. It comes with a table stand and wall mount on both the indoor and outdoor pieces. The outdoor piece is detachable from the the wall mount, which makes it much easier to hang. The indoor receiver is not detachable from the wall mount but in the event of mounting it on the wall, the table stand it detachable.

The other review was pretty accurate in saying it's hard to read. It is. It's full on LCD and if you're looking directly at the display from a ninety degree angle, it's almost impossible to read anything other than the clock and the moon cycle. These two items dominate the display, which is kind of silly for a weather station if you ask me. There is a Snooze/Light button on the top of the unit which activates the light for five seconds. When the light is on, it is almost impossible to read any part of the display at a ninety degree angle. If you're looking down at a forty-five degree angle from the top-right side, the display is crystal clear. A LCD design flaw, a big one!

The atomic clock dominates the display followed by the moon cycles, the alarm and the 12 and 24 hour forecast. The lower right corner is dominated by the barometric pressure history chart and could have been assigned to something much more useful.

I sit here the day after installation and see that though it is 15 degrees outside -- the Sharp Weather Station says it is 31 degrees. Folks -- my simplistic need is first and foremost -- "Outdoor Temp" and being able to "see it". The Sharp Weather Station fails on these most basic requirements. The weather station is almost impossible to read unless you plug it in with the AC power (included) and turn on the backlight and make sure that you are looking "straight on". Did you ever wonder, like with this Sharp, why the Time is the most predominate window? REALLY? I have never purchased a weather station to know what time it is. What is that about? Anyway -- it has just gone up to 33 degrees -- about 20 degrees to high. GOING BACK TO SAM'S CLUB.

I purchased this unit on a Saturday. I set it up and the thermometer from the outside disagreed with the inside. Then the thermometer stopped working completely. Called their customer service on Monday and a recorded message said they would call back (did not happen). Waited till Wednesday and called again,same result. Tried again on Friday (same).
They apparently do not care about customer service and giving the clients good service.

Most of the functions on the Sharp Atomic Wireless Weather Station (SPC502A) seem to work okay: time, date, phase of the moon, indoor temperature, indoor humidity (though I am not sure how accurate this is), barometric pressure, pressure tendency, alarm clock, 12-hour and 24-hour forecast, etc. At first a concern, the external sensor initially read more than 3.5 degrees F. higher and 5% humidity lower than the internal temperature and humidity on the receiver, even when the sensor and the receiver were sitting right next to each other on a table. Based upon other instruments I have i appeared that the receiver temperature was more accurate than the sensor temperature. But in less than an hour the external sensor readings were only slight higher (0.5 degrees F and 1% humidity) than the receiver readings for temperature and humidity. So don't panic if the external sensor initially starts to read significantly higher than it should-- give it some time. Once the temperature and humidity readings on the indoor receiver and on the external sensor are nearly the same, it is time to put your sensor outside.

One complaint is that though the time is displayed in large numbers, the other readings are very small and you have to be very close to the unit to read things like temperature, humidity, pressure, etc.

Still, overall, this unit seems to be pretty nice for the price.

Like the other reviewers, we purchased this at Sam's.

Overall, I like it because it shows everything I want it to show--inside/outside temp., humidity, moon cycles, forecast, etc. It is definitely better than the computer-connected one I bought and returned because it didn't work properly. This one isn't reliant on a computer, and I like that.

The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because it is very hard to read. There should be a way that one could brighten the screen permanently. As it is, you have a very short window of time in which the light will come on so you can read what's on the screen. That needs to be corrected.

My younger son loves to keep up with the weather, and had asked for this for Christmas. He had put it outside at our house and when he left to go home, (another city) he accidentally left the outdoor sensor here, outside in the wheelbarrow. I mailed it to him, and he said he knew the mail had come because he could tell the temperature all of a sudden.
