  1. Useful. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2020

    Bought this Aercus product to replace a quite old desktop model whose display had died.
    This is a good size, easy to mount remote monitor with good range.

    Good points: size of display, useful basic information on weather, looks tidy.

    Less good points: pointless inclusion of clock alarm and time zone settings etc.
    Decimal points a bit small for the degrees.
    Instructions a little obscure but OK for setting up after a few minutes of frustration, it needs more buttons to fix that.

    Overall a quite OK device for the price.

  2. Compact weather station at a great price 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jun 2020

    My previous weather station (not this brand) died after many years of use and after researching decided this one was exactly what I needed at a price I wanted to pay.
    I use it to make decisions on when to use my air conditioning both in summer and winter and it is very handy in summer if you are inside with the cold air blowing and find out that a cool change has arrived outside that you hadn't noticed. Off goes the aircon and the house gets opened up!

  3. Best Basic Weather Station 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th May 2020

    I have had a number of basic weather stations in the past that provide temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and forecast indication. This is the best one I have had. Solid construction and easy to use. If you want a basic weather station, this is the one.

  4. Aercus Instruments WS1173 Desktop Weather Station 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Feb 2020

    The Aercus Instruments WS1173 Desktop Weather Station is easy to set up, easy to understand instructions. I just installed the batteries and in less than a minute the units were communicating. The screen display on the instrument is easy to read, so that changing, the time, date or year is really easy. The max/min feature is easy to use as well. This is a great weather station for a reasonable price.

  5. Exccellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2019

    So concise and simple to set up and start working. The display is very well laid out and easy to understand and so informative.

  6. Like it 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Sep 2018

    Does what I wanted quite well

  7. I like it 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Feb 2018

    Excellent device. Easy to set up. A good range of information displayed. Is a big improvement on a similar earlier device of a different brand. It displays the information needed to help one decide which of my air conditioning equipment (reverse cycle or evaporative) to run

  8. Robust and easy to use 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    For the basics of inside/outside temperatures, humidity & atmospheric pressure, the added bonus of icon representation of weather prediction makes this a hassle free and easy to use product.

  9. Ticks all the Boxes 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2017

    This my second device after the first was damaged by leaking batteries after many years of use(hint ; buy good quality alkaline).

    The price is good, it is easy to set-up, easy to read and provides, to me, an accurate assessment of the current weather and forecast of future trends.

    It is a great middle of the range weather stations. Well recommended.

  10. good! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Feb 2017

    excellent now I have it operating . It would assist greatly to have a more overt warning in respect to initiating the device and timing in relation to battery placement
