We recently picked up the La Crosse Technology WS-7049U Mahogany Wireless Weather Station with Remote Temperature Sensor from a deal on Woot.com. This wireless home weather station is going to run you $49ish without the $20 deal at WOOT! and after spending nearly 3 weeks of testing we think the $49 may be worth it. We've read our fair share of "not so great reviews" on the La Crosse Technology WS-7049U, but after comparison to several other weather stations we are testing like the Honeywell Wireless Personal Weather Station and the Ambient Weather Forecaster, we can conclude the WS-7049U does a good job for the money.

We really like the weather stations that use the MSN direct service. Why? Plug it in, and you're done! No sensors, no set up, no hassles. The Oregon Scientific Weather Now weather console uses the MSN Direct service to receive regional weather information without the use of any outdoor sensors, and updates its content every two minutes.
For the first time, get real-time, 4-day weather forecast information to plan your day and week ahead. By just plugging in the weather station within specified MSN Direct coverage areas, you can receive regional wind, rain, temperature, humidity, chance of precipitation and even NWS warning information..

We're partial to old school meets new school design and the Honeywell TC681ELW Wireless Weather Station w/Analog Quartz Clock has it. We love the blue display and analog clock, as it really does combine old and new information the way we like it. We also like the fact it has comfort level indicators along with the min/max temperature for the day. Also - the ability to have 3 temperature sensors will eliminate having just one temperature so you can get an average around your house instead of a misreading with the temperature gauge in the direct Sun.

We're rather excited about the Honeywell TN924W Complete Wireless Home Weather Station. It's got just about everything you want in a home wireless weather station - time, weather, sensors, wind, rain gauge, and other great features. It's even got a rather amazing programmable ice alarm to tell you when things aren't going so well. Oh and did we mention a moon phase feature? We'll have a full run down after our review unit arrives with first impressions.
