    Great unit for the price
    This ACU-RITE 634 weather station works great as advertised. I've had it running now since Christmas day and it was easy to set up and I'm having no problems. The outside (and inside) sensors seems to be very sensitive and accurate. The inside display show a lot of info, although it would have been nice if the "history" feature was a little more precise. If you have lower temps outside (<35 degrees) use LIthium batteries in the outside sensor as the battery condition indicator on the inside unit flashes "Low Battery" if you use alkaline batts. A few things to think about are that the inside unit does not have a lighted screen, you don't get wind direction or a rain sensor, and you don't get pc connectivity. If you want any of those things look at a more expensive unit. Otherwise it's a great unit for the price!

          Perfect weather display
          Was easy to install, all aspects of the instrument works as stated. give it a few minutes to connect to the world clock. I could not be more pleased with a product. The range for my transmiter is about 200 feet and goes through a birck wall and 8 Inch concrete basement wall.

            I think I have found the perfect solution
            Our weather here in the middle of Texas is constantly changing. The weatherman have very little chance of getting it right everyday. I have a memory of going to school in the morning and it was 80 degrees. By 10:00 we were sent home because it was snowing. Needless to say I have been on a quest to find a better weatherman ever since.I think I have found the perfect solution. AcuRite is a wonderful company that sells amazingly accurate weather stations for home use. The one I received is super easy to install and really simple to use. It has a large digital display that is so self explanatory even those with no technological expertise can tell the forecast and weather with ease. It has been really nice to know the wind speed as well as wind chill before I go outside to feed the animals. No more walking out the front door and getting surprised by a chill ya to the bone breeze. I love my weather station and think these are great gift ideas.
