Temperature Station

2012-09-01
By Matt Ernst

It was much larger than I expected. I tried to estimate the dimensions of the Station, but nothing on the Internet helped in that regard. Otherwise, I'm satisfied with the product. It seems to be working well.

Not bad for price but not great either

2012-11-13
By dgencare

I was looking for an indoor/outdoor temperature gauge and this seemed to fit the bill perfectly. How can you go wrong for $15.99? Well, you get what you pay for. The size of the elements on the display favor the temperature. The clock is not as easy to read from a distance so where you hang/place the unit can be a factor. Also, the outdoor temperature monitor died about 20 seconds after I took it out of the box. Shipping the whole thing back was going to cost me about 1/2 of what I paid for the whole thing. I decided to take my chances and cracked it open. Turned out the batteries had shifted and no longer making contact. Once I fixed the batteries and snapped the unit back together it was working perfectly again.

Pros
- Cost
- Indoor/outdoor temp on display is large and easy to read
- No need to replace the batteries in the outdoor temp sensor

Cons
- The while thing feels light and cheap. Pressing on the set buttons compresses the LCD screen.
- Initial problems with the out temp monitor.
- This maybe just me but... the temperature station is screwed to the box. It took a bit to figure this out.

OK - when the sun's not shining...

2012-11-03
By Clinton

This little gadget is neat - displays indoor temps quite well. But when the sun is shining directly on the wireless sensor - forget about it. It can be 78ºF outside and, with the sun on the sensor, record temps of 94ºF+. When the sun goes down, it's fine - but for a sensor that's solar powered?

There are likely better devices out there that don't suffer 'sun-burn'... save your money on this one, folks: it just doesn't work in direct sunlight.
