I received this unit as a christmas present and was initially pleased with it.
After 3 weeks use however it stopped displaying the outside temperature but indicated that it was receiving a signal. After everything else failed to fix it I replaced all the batteries and lo it started to work again. This time it worked for several hours before giving the same symptoms. The outside sensor was close and in a area protected from rain etc.
Sometimes when I press the reset button it springs briefly back to life but never for long!

Having read other comments it looks like I have a faulty unit and am returning it to the supplier. If this is a common occurence then theunit is not of merchantable quality.

I bought an Oregon Scientific BAR 206 Weather Station just over a year ago. The remote temperature/humidity sensor has always worked fine, but the rain sensor does not seem to work. I reported this to Oregon Scientific and they recommended a complicated reset process which is not mentioned in the manual. It still didn't work. Oregon Scientific recommended I purchase a replacement. I didn't fancy buying another unit which probably again wouldn't work. They also mentioned the rain sensor doesn't like cold weather - so do I bring it inside when it gets cold? The forecast is also useless. It seems that if the atmospheric pressure is increasing, then it forecasts sun. If it is decreasing, then rain. Not very useful. The only reason I continue to use it is that it tells me the temperature and humidity inside and outside - oh and the clock works. But at well over £100 that seems a bit pricey.

I've had an outside wireless thermometer linked to my wall clock for years. That was cheap but I couldn't track down a source for additional wireless sensors.
I then bought this plus and extra sensor so that I could remotely monitor the temperature of my growhouses.
The main problem with this unit is how insensitive the receiver is or how weak the remote transmitters are. It is claimed that they have a range 30 meters. Huh. 10 meters across open space if you're lucky! I've tried moving the base unit around, adjusting the position of the remote sensors, everything immaginable. I've tried putting the sensors in the garden in plain view of the base unit but that's no better. Sometimes it displays the external temperatures, sometimes not. Even the radio controlled clock seems to have serious reception problems which are not shared with either my waveceptor watch or the aforementioned cheap wallclock.
In addition, unlike my previous unit, the remote sensors don't display the current temperature so you can't tell how warm it is without looking at the base unit.
As for the weather predictions, what is the point? Mine currently says that it is raining when actually no rain is forecast for the rest of the day and currently the sun is shining.
In short, this unit is poor and certainly not worth the exhorbitant price. There are much cheaper units around that I'm certain probably all work better than this.

I like the functionality when it works, but it continuously loses touch with the outdoor temperature sensor continuously. The only way to resynch is to reset both with a pin. Also the weather prediction is completely inaccurate.

Hands on the product feels very cheap plastic. The controls are quite lame/unintuitive. Reset with pin is uncomfortable. It seems to do the basic functions, but cheaper devices might do that as well. It's satisfactory, but not meeting my expectations.

After two and a half months of operation it has lost sensor signal. Replacing batteries + resetting it with pin does not make any change. Don't recommend to anyone.

It's a good unit but Max Min resets Itself at midnight which makes that function a bit of a farce.

I have currently complained to Oregon and I'm waiting on a reply, so I may well update this review later - in either direction.

Otherwise fine so far (about a month). The range is currently terrific - I am currently sitting in my office some 30 mtrs plus from the transmitter/sensor at the opposite end of my house with lots of Bradstone walls, and it has a strong signal (unless my neighbour has one closer of course??).

UPDATE (17 April 14)

All above stands, however:

I have now received a reply from Oregon, and they have told me that it is designed to re-set at midnight!

I can only hope that the bozo in the Oregon design team who produced this spec has received suitable discipline - who in their right mind would design a max/min function that does not give you the max/min readings other than those since the last midnight - I suppose you could wait up until 23.59 to read them, at least you would then get 24 hours worth?

If this was a unit without max/min I would give it five stars. However as a unit purchased for the max/min function it is all but useless, so I'm reducing my rating from three stars to one star.
