  1. Fantastic desktop weather station 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jan 2016

    I received this weather station as a birthday present and keep it on the counter in the kitchen for easy viewing. It has an excellent clear display with a very nice backlight. We have a number of thermometers around the place and it seems to be quite accurate. A friend of mine has a handheld humidity meter that he brought over one day and it matched up well with that too.

    Having the barometric pressure graph is a nice addition, most desktop stations like these only have the forecast function but being able to see the pressure changes over the last 24 hours allows you to make your own call which I like. It's fair to say that I'm no better than the built in forecast which seems to get it right more times than not which is pretty amazing for such an inexpensive device.

    Another thing I like is that the outdoor sensor has a readout on it which is handy when you're outside so you don't have to go in to the console to see the temperature and humidity. It comes with screws and I attached ours under one of the eaves of our house with the screws included with no problems.

    The min/max function is quite good and I have used that a few times to see what sort of lows we've had overnight. I don't really have a use for the weather alarms but again that's great functionality for the price I think. So I'd highly recommend the Aercus WS1173 if you're looking for a desktop station.
