I have had my WMR88 running for a week now. It works very well.

In the box you get:

The base station
Anenometer / wind direction sensor and bracket
Rain Sensor
Temeperature and humidity sensor and mount
Batteries for all of the above
PSU for the base station (also runs on included batteries).

It took me maybe an hour to install all the hardware.
The temperature sensor takes minutes, just a couple of screws. Don't mount it where it can get direct sunlight.
The Rain sensor is easy to install but you need to find something to mount it to. I cut a piece of ply, painted it and attached it to the roof of a shed, mounted the sensor horizontally on top. Use a spirit level.
The anemometer I mounted on a 3' pole and a facia TV bracket so it sticks up above the roof of the house. Get someone to hold the ladder :-) The bracket to attach it to the pole is included. make sure the anemometer lies directly to the north of the pole its mounting on, or you will need to specify an offset in the software to get the right wind direction indicated.

The sensors are all nicely made and look waterproof.

The base station is nicely made but has two small detractions - the LCD display, like on many such devices is quite directional and best viewed from a little above straught on. The second issue is the unit buzzes (slightly) when the backlight is pressed.

I didn't use the supplied software. I needed a lightweight application to use which would run all day on my tiny server running on a single core atom processor under windows 7.

I chose open source (read FREE) software called WSDL from [...]

It took minutes to install and about 10 minutes to configure it to work.

Verified Purchase
Our WMR88 has been up and running for a couple of weeks now.
Some initial observations:
- strange that a unit supplied for UK use comes with an EU plug? Could have at least supplied an adaptor (or put a clear 'warning' in the spec).
- we agree that the backlight time-on is ridiculously short. Doesn't give anywhere near enough time for the baro/rain/UV trend graph to complete a single cycle!
- there is definitely a 'whistle' when the backlight is on. This is likely to be the HT voltage generator circuit to power the electroluminescent panel. Poor design?
- strange that there's no 'offset' facility for the anemometer to take account of difficulties in mounting the bracket, or trying to point the unit in the direction of the most common wind direction for your location.
- we like the accurate (radio syncd) time display.
- base station button labels can be very difficult to see in low light - maybe they should light up when the backlight is working?
- we've checked the readings against a hi-end local station (looks like it's a Davis Vantage Vue unit), and the figures are generally very close. Even the rainfall.
Now waiting for some time to work out the USB link to our pc...and I'm planning to 'enhance' the base station antenna to improve reception from some of the units.
Otherwise, we're generally pleased - just some basic design features that could have been better thought out.

I had one of these and it lasted a year before the anemometer broke. I bought a new sensor which was over half the cost of the original unit and that lasted a year and then broke. I'm looking to buy another weather station but it won't be from Oregon that's for sure.

4 stars given.... see my edit at bottom of review (11/04/2015)

I purchased my Oregon Scientific WMR-88 in November 2011, so after 3.25 years I feel that I now need to replace it...

When you accept what a weather station costing between £95 and £140 gets thrown at it, outside in all weathers, 3 years use is not so bad. At the three year point my WMR-88 became unreliable. After much fiddling, battery changes, resets of control panel I got the rain gauge and outdoor thermometer working again. The anemometer remains intermittent.

I get a lot of pleasure from monitoring the weather here in North Yorkshire, all data is flagged up to my website and the various other feeds, such as www.pwsweather.com using Cumulus software, it needs to be accurate and reliable, so the time has come to change the unit...

I looked at forking out £300 and buying the Davis Vantage Vue from Amazon as a direct replacement. However, unlike the WMR88 the Davis Vue needs an additional data logger unit costing another £140. This is too expensive so I've decided to purchase another WMR88 for less than £100 and hope the anemometer lasts longer than 3 years this time round.

The picture shows the component parts of my old WMR-88 in use. It is important that the thermometer is placed out of direct sunlight or you get totally false readings of temperature. I have mine mounted on a north facing wall at the back of my garage and it then provides accurate readings 24/7.

Edit 11/04/2015

I did purchase another WMR100 station complete, which was much more cost effective than purchasing an individual component. I replaced the anemometer with the new one but I still had a problem with intermittent wind readings.
