Not a very clear display. Not bad for the money though.
Well this does what it says. It does tell the time. It does tell the inside and outside temperature. It does tell the humidity. Plus at the discounted price it’s cheap. The picture does make it look backlit... It isn’t, it needs a descent amount of light behind it to see. However since you’re likely to place the clock near a window to make use of the outdoor temperature sensor (a couple of meters worth of thin cable, which doesn’t seem to impede closing a window and the sensor seems fine being outdoors), that shouldn’t be a problem. Accuracy: Time wise it's holding it's time fairly consistently. Temperature seems to be a couple of degrees Celsius too generous. Humidity doesn’t seem that sensitive. I’ve not seen it change when I’ve put a humidifier on. However I don’t have any other measuring device to compare this with. Overall, although only plastic it looks quite nice. Possibly not that accurate but certainly gives an rough indication of temperatures (or at least the difference between inside and outside). 4 stars if you get this at discounted price.

"This is a stand for the unit to be stood upright." This threw me, too - but then realised that the bar acts as a prop should you wish to have the unit 'upright' ( but inclined slightly ) without using the black, weighted stand.

Re N78GB Desktop Weather Station. About the Humidity Sensor, is this sensor just indoor, or just outdoor ,or both?
Is it correct that both button cells are supposed to be fitted positive upwards? It would seem batteries would thus be in parallel, as lid has a strip that connects '+' to '+'. (else supplying two independent cicuits). Leaflet enclosed has neither any comment about batteries, nor pictures showing correct fitment.

Where should the external temperature sensor be placed? Does it have to be outside or just stuck to a window? If outside can it be exposed to rain. There is nothing in the instructions about this.
Hi Does this record the max and min temperature as well as the current value. The picture suggests "yes" but the specification doesnt mention this Thanks

With the Gadget Desktop Weather Station (N78GB) is a short metal rod - what's it for?? It does appear to fit in the back, but it's not mentioned at all in the instructions. Thanks.
How long is the wire?
