- ISS OK. Console eats batteries
ISS is fine. However my console eats batteries. NiCad rechargeable in 2.5 days, Duracell in 3, Energizer in 3. Transformer OK. But battery consumption is a big disappointment . Not at all as described in the manual.
Weathershop: If you are using an IP logger this will consume batteries, you are advised to use the AC adaptor if logging data.
- Excellent Equipment from a First Class Business
We needed to monitor local weather conditions on a site owned by a charity providing clinical and educational services to disabled children. The Vantage Vue is a very impressive piece of equipment for the price; well-made, accurate with a fine data granularity and comprehensive spectrum of information. It is easy to set up, communicates wirelessly and is solar powered. In short, it is exactly as described by the Weathershop. The PC data-logger is recommended; with the right VPN software you can monitor the weather station anywhere in the world from a mobile phone or PC.
- Excellent Equipment
What a great piece of equipment! I purchased this weather station after I finally got fed up of my useless Smart Weather Station. This runs very smoothly, and is easy to set up. It is also very accurate. I would recommend purchasing a data logger also.
All in all, although quite expensive, this is a great weather station and well worth the money!
- Excellent equipment
I had Lacrosse equipment prior to purchasing my Vantage Vue. The lacrosse failed gradually and I could not get the software to run on pc.
Enter the vantage Vue, what a difference! Admittedly more expensive, but well worth the extra.
Easy to install, software runs perfectly, worth getting the data logger, although, there is plenty of information on the console.
I have been running my Vantage Vue for three weeks and it has proved to operate perfectly with no problems. If you want a good quality weather station, buy this!
- Far more useful than I could have guessed...
I bought this weather station with the Weatherlink IP software in September 2010 purely as a way of monitoring the weather for sailing. It has been useful way beyond what I originally anticipated. I only bought the Weatherlink IP logger because I'm a gadget nut and couldn't resist the idea of plugging it into my home network and sending data to weatherlink.com and the weather underground; however, this functionality alone meant that over the recent cold winter I was able to monitor the internal temperature of my home while I was away on vacation, and thereby watch for any conditions that may have resulted in frozen pipes. Similarly, the indoor humidity sensor has provided visibility for observing the effects of provisioning new dehumidifiers around the house for keeping condensation under control.
The only problem I have encountered was some crashing of the Weatherlink software running on an old laptop - however, this was solved quickly enough by upgrading the Microsoft .NET framework to the latest version. It has been stable since.
All in all, a really excellent, high quality piece of kit. I highly recommend it.
- Excellent piece of equipment of professional quality!
I purchased one in September,2010, currently running extraordinarily smoothly unlike my previous WMR-200 from oregon Scientific. I would personally recommend this one for any budding meteorologist seeking for the most reliable accuracy at an affordable price.
- Excellent display, data graphing and sensor accuracy
I have been running my Vantage Vue for over 6 months alongside it's more expensive counterpart - the VP2. The Vue performs faultlessly and, the new Vue Console is simply crammed with features which we wish we had on our VP2.
The amount of data stored on the Console begs the question of the need for a data logger - certainly not necessary if doing manual records as I do - well done Davis!!!
