The weather station is great and works wonderfully. The only thing keeping this from a better rating is the non-comaptiabliity with with Macs. I'm not much in to the data keeping, as much as the "now" reports on the unit base. So didn't keep me from getting the unit, but software should be put out for Macs, limits customers base.

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!

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

        All efforts were expended but we were not able to get the wind speed/direction indicator to work. Several resyncs and several factory restarts were done, and the wind indicators were still "flat-lined". It appears that since both sensors are not working indicating that the unit itself may be not sending. Since there are no batteries to access, I do not know if the internal batteries are charging or the RF section of the unit is not working. In either case, this makes the unit almost useless as the main portion that I was looking forward to was the wind indicators.

        Yes, the photocell cover has been removed. Had it in bright light for a while to include outside. Still not working. Distance not a problem, as the units were all inside with about 5 feet spacing between each to insure no interfernce.

        The outdoor temp/humidity and rain work fine. Only the wind indicators are not working.

        Regards,

        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.

                    It was a pleasure doing business with Hayneedle.
                    Very happy!
