Works fine  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Works good. I put one up at the home QTH and got it online quickly using Cumulus software. I like the self emptying flow through rain bucket. Connectivity IS a common issue in other review sites. They ARE correct, distance is nowhere near the claims so plan ahead. I posted a review elsewhere and said I get 150 feet, I did but started to have many data dropouts and had to bring it in to 75 feet. 75 feet may seem like a lot until you consider where the console is in relationship to the station AND the PC used to get the data online (if thats your goal)I have my console in the bedroom and a 50 foot usb repeater cable to the data PC in another room. Overall I would give it a 5 but the connectivity issue drops it a notch. Dont get me wrong I DO like it, in fact I purchased another for my work QTH. I highly recommend this as long as you are going to keep the station between 75-50 feet from the console.

Great entry level station  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This review is more about the dealer I purchased the station from than the station itself.
After some initial problems, with connectivity between the sensors and main unit were resolved, I am now very happy with the performance of the station.For the money and as an entry level station it would be hard to beat.
I bought this station off of eBay from a seller named discount-gadgets or wholesale-gadgets, both the same folks.
Brian has bent over backwards to help me with the connectivity problem I had. He sent me a new station, which he paid the shipping on, before I sent back the defective station! Then he sent me money to pay for the return of the old station. Again before I returned the defective unit!!! This was a total unexpected pleasent surprise, because in his blurb on the auction site he said any return shippng would be the buyers responsibility! Not many vendors would do that!
Beside all of this I had some questions which he took the time to sit and write me detailed answers, not just a curt short reply.
This vendor showed me that he does care about his customers and his reputation. IMHO Brian is a first class person with tons of integrity.
Thanks to Brian and his staff for the excellent after sales service.
