Reviews for: Davis Instruments 6250 Vantage Vue Complete System...
Review by Buchanan Dam, Texas
Product took a long time to receive, but it performs far better than the Oregon Scientific unit that I previously had. Simple to set up, the rainfall measurements actually agree with my glass tube recorder. Temps correlate to other thermometers, barometric pressures track other weather stations near me. The console is easy to set up and easy to read. A very good unit for the price.
Review by Boise, Idaho
We received the Davis 6250 Vantage Vue Complete System in a very timely manner and it has performed every bit as good as promised. We love it and it was a cinch to set up. Its as accurate as our local weather station . Thank you for the best price on the best product.
