- Really Great Review by Amy
- Does a lot of things well. Review by David
Handsome device. Good display. Good illumination.
Capacitive setting/panel light buttons won't get cranky as it ages.
Your choice of Celsius/millibars (they call them hectopascals) or Fahrenheit/inches of mercury.
Holds MIN and MAX readings for indoor and outdoor temp and humidity from midnight of the current day. You can also manually reset the MIN or MAX readings from the panel.
Tracks Daylight Savings Time automatically.
If your neighbors don't have similar machines you can potentially have up to three remote sensors, and the price of the remotes is right.
Connecting to a remote sensor is straightforward and not picky.
Barometer automatically trains itself over two weeks to adjust to your altitude when you first power on..
Battery life seems very good. The reviewer mentioning frequent battery changes has a defective unit (maybe with the light running when it shouldn't be?).
The desk stand is effective (and can be removed by pulling from the middle).
Customer service is responsive.
The shiny bezel is a magnet for obvious fingermarks, and that's where the "buttons" are. Best you put a hanky over your finger when you use them, unless you like polishing.
Picture display for the near forecast can be rather confusing. Would have been better if less pretty had they used text for the forecast.
You have to take the battery cover off (or modify it) to switch among multiple remotes.
Barometer does not show an actual graph of the last twelve hours of pressure, only the two points (now, and now - 12h) with a pretty line drawn between them.
Barometer automatically trains itself over two weeks to adjust to your altitude - any time you change the batteries. Nothing is saved when you change batteries. Also, of course, you can't carry the thing around on a trip and set the barometer to correspond to your altitude.
If you lose the remote signal the signal strength bars go away but the device holds the last reading. It would be better if it dumped the reading and showed you an empty display instead.
If build quality (consistency) were better they wouldn't have to use their excellent customer service so much.
On balance a fine device - if you get a good one. I recommend it highly, with the caveat that if it doesn't behave like a fine device you'll have to ask for another one. The display should be stable and not appear to blink or flash at any time. The panel light should not come on by itself. Reception from the remote should be fairly stable and not simply stop when it feels like it (but if it's lost the signal, switch to a different channel on the main unit and then switch back. If it recovers, and doesn't do that too often, you're ok). (Posted on 6/23/13)
