Read full details.
Pros: - It accesses the internet to retrieve your weather - It's weather access requires no subscription - It's affordable
Cons: So there's more con's here then pros really. Setting up this weather station is a real pain in the neck. The device itself really isn't wireless in that it directly connects to a wifi signal, instead you're forced to connect a wireless antenna to your router which then sends a signal to your weather station.
Sounds simple enough right? Too bad there's an 8 step process to linking this antenna to your weather station. There's somewhat okay instructions that will help guide you through the manufacturers website in case you run into issues. Once you get past setting up this little trouble maker, then comes the other issues...
-Very small - so small, that while hanging up on the wall, you need to walk up right to it in order to read it. The contrast is still low set at it's very highest which doesn't help trying to view it. -Definitely not back lit which is a shame -Wireless antenna that comes with is makes this loud buzzing sounds that's incredibly annoying (not sure if mine's just defective that way or if it's supposed to be buzzing) -Materials feel cheap and the overall purchase has been a disappointment
Other Thoughts: Look, set aside all the issues with this thing and focus on the things it does, yes, it grabs questionable forecast information and displays it in what really is a nice format. You just get what you pay for. If you're looking for something a bit nicer, I'd look at some better models all together.
