I said I would review the product after using it. OK I've used the unit since January and have no complaints. Easy to install, easy setup. The only problem I have experienced was user created, I mounted the unit using 1" PVC which created a problem with the rain gauge reporting rain on days when the wind was 15+ MPH (no rain) because the PVC was allowing the unit to shake and caused the unit to malfunction. I remounted the unit on 1" galvanized pipe which corrected the problem and I have no issues now. very accurate rain reporting which I have checked with my manual backup gauge, other functions accurate as well. Recommend the unit for anyone needing an accurate weather station to record and transfer information to your computer for business purposes or just your personal use.

Nice unit when it worked. After a bit of rain water got into the wind unit and corroded/shortcircuited the sensor. The response from LaCrosse was a constant exchange of e-mails with colored, big-font questions and admonitions about batteries (which brand, how old, etc) but no real resolution. I am now left with the unit that has no wind sensor.
Also, the software to transfer data to the PC is (again) nice when it works. Almost every time when the computer is put on standby the synchronization with the weather unit drops (which is understandable) but when the computer wakes up re-synchronization either happens with a long delay(tens of minutes or even hours) or does not happen at all requiring manual resynchronization. Even worse is the situation when the central unit loses communication with temperature, rainfall or wind sensors. To re-establish communication, LaCrosse requires to take out all batteries, put them in a specific order and jump through hoops. All in all a FRUSTRATING experience with a product that looks good but is junk!

I have owned the same unit for 7 or 8 yrs. and installed it at a mountain cabin. Gives very useful info. Unfortunately the solar-powered wind speed sensor gave up the ghost.

        Comments about La Crosse Technology Professional Weather Center WS-2810U-IT with Solar Wind Sensor:

        In the 2 years I've had this unit, I've sent it back to la crosse (at my expense) for repair 3 times. It has since passed away again, a 4th time and now they want me to send it back again (at my expense) and now since it is no longer within warranty to pay for whatever parts it needs. I don' t think I have had more than 3 or 4 months of trouble free service in the 2 years, without having to climb a ladder to get the wind sensor and the thermo hygro for a complete factory reset, and the possibility of having to send it back which has happened 3 times. Your contact with them is by email and their reply is always about batteries, to check them with a meter and to use name brand batteries with a shelf life 7 years or more. I have spent a small fortune in batteries. Being a stock holder in duracell or eveready would be beneficial if you buy this unit. If you buy this unit, do not tell me I didn't tell you so. Buy a thermometer and look out the window and download a weather app if you want to know the weather. Don't buy this unit. Save your money, it is junk, garbage, and not worth the time and aggravation you'll spend trying to get it to work.

            Hayneedle.com sent the unit right away, no delay. Thanks! I was able to install the outside pieces on my old TV tower, with the temperature unit under the eves in about an hour. After about a month of use, it has done exactly what we expected it to do.
