I'm not familiar with that particular model but if it does what you need, then at that price it can't be bad. I

If you just want something that gives you indoor and outdoor temps, plus humidity, then it's OK, but if you're looking for something that will give you more and can connect to a computer, you'll be paying quite a lot more.

My first weather station was similar to the one you were looking at, but it also recorded minimum and maximum temperatures, plus barometric readings and history. The one you were looking at didn't say it did any of those although it didn't give much info about it at all, but you can pick up a basic station for less than £20 from lots of places now as prices have come down a lot since they've been producing the more sophisticated stations. My original one cost nearly £100, which is the current price of the one I now have and this cost considerably more when I had it two or three years ago.

My current one came with its own software and as well as logging data readings by the minute on my computer, it stores the information so I can look back on it and compare. It also has a rain guage and an anemometer and displays and records rainfall rate, wind direction and speed, as well as Dew Point, which is useful fore forecasting snow. http://www.weathershop.co.uk/shop/brands/technoline/technoline-ws2350-weather-station?gclid=CMisqpqh7rECFc0mtAodCEEACw

Moaner, I was in Asda last night and they have weather stations reduced from £6 to £3. They're like the ones you were looking at but have min and max temp memory as well.

Yes, they are wireless outdoor sensor and you can add two more sensors to them to give you three readings from different outdoor areas. I bought some to give as Christmas prezzies! :D

Moaner, I've been in this morning and didn't see any, so they've probably sold them all. They've got clock/thermometers but the ones I got are called LCD Weather Stations.

Ahh, that's a shame, but that might be enough if you just want to know the outside temperature. If they'd had some left when I went this morning, I'd have bought more.
