I have a Davis Vantage Pro 2 that has been going strong for about 12 years. I would highly recommend The Davis brand.

I also have a Davis Vantage Pro 2. 10 years old and still works fine. Spend the extra cash for the wireless unit. It's money well spent.

We have a couple of the Lacrosse indoor / outdoor thermometers. Don't waste your money on them.

As others have said, get a Davis Vantage VUE or the pro series if you want to link it to such things as an irrigation system. There is tons of info at your fingertips. First pic is in Wind Mode, second in Temp just as examples. Two of my neighbors have just monitors in their house and my wireless transmitter broadcasts to them also. You can hook it to your computer and print out graphs from just one day to an entire year, of the mode you select to print off. I have to replace the battery in the transmitter about once a year, but it messages you when bat is getting low.
Mount the transmitter high on a pole and somewhere that is not affected by building and trees.

I don't know anything about those $500.00 jobs, but SWMBO got me a wireless station at Wally World a few years back. A little over $100.00 IIRC. It stopped working within 18 months. Tech support said I needed a new $60.00 transmitter.

I don't have a weather station anymore...

Yes, a Davis Vantage is the Cadillac of home weather stations. Mine worked fine for many years until the Amish neighbors decided one hot wire would hold his Holstein steers. They went right through it brought down my mast and trampled the station. Request for reimbursement got a blank stare.

I now have an Acurite 5 in 1 and while certainly not on par with the Davis is an adequate system

I have an ambient weather: wireless weather station. Have had it about 2 yrs. It has worked pretty well. If I had the money I would buy a davis as they are the cadillac of weather stations.

I went and looked at the manual I still have. Mine was a Lacrosse. Pretty much junk from the get go.
