My Thoughts
I got the opportunity to try the Color Weather Station. This was easy to set up. It was pretty much straight from the box and ready to use. It didn't come with batteries, so I had to put two double A into the white part that goes outside. The weather station connected to it without problem and began to detect the temperature.

I'm still working on finding the right place  for the sensor because in the middle of the afternoon when the sun is beating on it, it tells me at times is 120 degrees outside and it's really only about 85. I think once I find the right place for it, then that will solve that problem.

For the most part, the center part with the clouds stay accurate to what the weather is outside. There have been a few times I've seen rain in the center but it was sunny outside, however, moisture could have been in the air. I'm not quite sure how the sensor picks up what it's doing outside.

Over all, I really like this. I like the bright colors of this, being able to monitor the temperature in my house and outside. Having the phase of the moon is always a neat feature to watch. I'm not sure if it's accurate yet, as we had a full moon on Friday and currently only half the the moon is colored. We just finished the initial 14 day set-up period, so I will keep an eye on it to see if it straightens out.
