Not bad. Owned for 8 months. Setup was easy. Temperature was 2° too high at night or on cloudy days. About 8-10° too high in full sun. There is no way to calibrate the temperature like the 5-in-1. Pressure relies on averageing over 30 days, however, if the average pressure where you live is not 29.92 then it will never be accurate. Where I live, average pressure is 30.08 so it always read 0.16 too low. Again, no way to calibrate pressure. Everything else was right on the money. Didn't like that you could only read the dew point between 40 and 79°. Below 40°F it will only display wind chill. Above 80°, it will only display heat index and you have no choice in the matter. If it's above 80° you will NOT see the dew point on the screen and have no way to select it. Storm alarm isn't bad. When the storm alarm went off, the weather outside was usually not very pleasant but not hailing or tornadoing either. Great little gadget if you're just getting into meteorology, not so great if you expect 100% perfectly accurate so OCD folks be aware. It's close, but by no means spot on.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I hesitated for some time in purchasing this weather station because I wanted it specifically to watch the wind speed while on my cruising boat. For this unit, like many in this price range, the wind speed is only updated every 18 seconds - a lot can happen in 18 seconds! My home unit is a Healthkit that has a wired connection to the sensor so it shows instantaneous readings. I decided to go with this one because it is a good value for the price. The next size up that would fit my requirements is a Davis unit that updates every 2 1/2 seconds but costs some $300. I haven't had this out on the water yet, but I expect it will suffice for my needs - I'm only interested in seeing what I survived so I can tell a good story! Of course remember that this unit does not tell wind direction - not a problem for me since the boat is always moving and direction would not be of help. Otherwise it is a great deal.

product works as you would expect. Outside tempurature sensor is solar sheilded so no false readings. It would be nice to have an atomic clock but for $50 what do you expect. The wireless range is decent also. I have the two units about 65 feet apart and it is 100% on the signal.

The installation of the AcuRite weather station was done strictly according to the instructions, with all new, fresh DURACELL batteries. Each cell was tested with a digital multimeter prior to their installation. There were problems with the AcuRite unit since the initial power up. It began to operate erratically: the Select Multi Display entries began to quickly scroll continuously, the Wind Speed indicator would not update even though the anemometer was rotating in the strong wind, the Set Clock function would not operate for setting time and date, and the temperature reading was grossly incorrect when compared to our Fluke and Taylor instruments (which are housed in an Instrument Shelter). I tried various things including a “hard” reset; the unit misbehaved in different ways. I immediately contacted Chaney Instruments Customer Service describing the problems with the unit. Days passed, I received several form-type emails, none of which showed any attempt at addressing the problem. I wrote additional emails and finally received a response asking if the batteries which I was using were “good”!!! (BTW, I am a veteran of several decades of performing Failure Analysis of electronic units, assemblies and components.) My experience shows that Chaney Customer Service is unwilling to provide any real support for their products and has no problem with insulting the intelligence of its customers. WALMART on the other hand, was great at understanding the problem, and solved it quickly. Thank you WALMART!

  • A. No, but that would be nice. Would probably up the price significantly though. I have an airport quality windsock on a 20 ft. pole right over my weather station so I can see where the wind is coming from. Of course my neighbors think I'm a nut. (but I think it's my tin foil hat)
