    Don't own one personally but have installed many Davis systems (wired and wireless).
    Great stuff they are!

    I have had a Davis Vantage Pro 2 hard-wired version in operation for more than 10 years and it is flawless. It did get blown up once when lightning hit the power pole in the yard but replacing the display brought it back to life.

    (I also have the data link and Weather Display software running on an old computer and absolutely LOVE the whole setup - it is better than having a government weather station in my yard.

    Wireless weather station is good and it's use latest technology. But i think Cabled weather stations is better than wireless weather station. Storm can't break a Cabled weather stations anemometer. It always give you the correct result and correct direction. You can avoid battery changing pain by using this weather station. Please don't take it negatively.
    Thanks.

    I have been running Davis Weather stations for about 15 years now. I currently run the Davis 6152C Wired Station. Ambient Weather seems to have the most competitive pricing for them. Link is below.

    One caveat is that to connect it to a computer you need to buy an interface adapter. The one below is USB, though they have a serial version if preferred...

    With the right software, you can feed Weather Underground, Citizens Weather Observer Program, your own website, or a host of other options. The advantage to feeding Weather Underground is some of the UAV Weather Applications will use them as source data.
