Looking for a weather station

Recommended Posts

Hi all.. just after some advice 

Which would be a better choice of station?

OREGON SCIENTIFIC WMR300 WIRELESS WEATHER STATION @ £349.00

Or a

DAVIS VANTAGE VUE COMPLETE SYSTEM @ £325.00

 

Many thanks :)

Tricky one that.. simply because, the WMR300 has zero support from Oregon, whereas the Davis, you'll have full support. The downside to the Vue is that all sensors are within a single array, so unless you have a massive wide open space, you'll have to sacrifice wind speeds for better temperature values, or poorer temperature values for better wind speeds.

I'd still opt for the Vue though.

Thanks mapantz..

The only thing that's putting me off the vue is the console. Looks so dated! Plus i want to mount the console on the hall way wall and not sure that would suit the vue either

I should also point out that the WMR has a built in data-logger for that price, so you can use it with various weather software - perhaps to create your own webpage. The Davis doesn't come with one, which means you'd have to fork out another £100 to achieve the same as the WMR.

Looking at this video, I don't think so..
