Overall an ok unit BUT....
The Wind Cups are on very flimsy arm extensions from the hub and will shear off in the lightest hail event. It may be a function of exposure of the plastic to the sun but my last set of cups lasted about 6 months. AcuRite doesn't sell just the wind cups so if your make a repair you must buy the top portion of the unit at a pretty high cost of $21.99 but as of now even that part is out of stock.
For over a hundred dollars I would expect a unit that can stand up to being used out of doors as intended.
There must be better choices.

Rated 4 out of 5 by silkcityflorida Good value unit, BUT
The first unit I received had some sort of problem with the rain collection bucket. Acu-Rite readily agreed to replace it although it took over 2 weeks due to a back-order situation.
It installed easily, and appears to be accurate. My only complaint is with the display unit. Black letters on a medium-to-darker blue background is difficult to read unless you are right next to the display. It would be nicer to be able to choose colors, e.g. white letters on a red background, or black letters on a white background. This would make the display much easier to read from across the room.
Overall, though, I am very pleased with the unit and would recommend it to friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CBJEEP Great weater center
This is a great weather center. I have had this for several months now. It is very accurate. The self emptying rain gauge is a huge plus, especially during the winter months. I would recommend this to anyone as a purchase for yourself or a gift.

by Flintmc Great buy
Nice unit and easy to install, has great range and bright display. Very easy to program and lots of options. Well worth the money. Has features that stations costing twice as much don't have.
