Exactly, the Davis Vantage is extremely good and reliable, and not to forget - it has existed for ages and got lots of knowledge and support/spareparts in many areas and countries.
We have been using these since the 90's, and right now at our local spot using the Vantage Pro2 (wireless).
I find (and I am used to it in work) that the computer/web software is a bit difficult to set up at first though...
No problem when you know how to - and lots of people you can ask (or ask me, know it inside out now)
The reason it is a bit of a mouthful, is because it can be used for multiple weather stations, and has loads of options.
Here, we upload new weather data (wind, direction, temperature, pressure, and even rain although who cares....) every 10th minute.
This is more than adequate, so no reason to do it every or every second minute.
Every half hour could also do okay, but hey, if the web connection is there anyways then 10min works great.
Have had many other "cheaper" stations too, just to see how they are - and the thing that is wrong with almost each and everyone, is the WIND and WINDDIRECTION is not as reliable and accurate as the Davis.
And that is almost all we care about, right ?
Can only recommend the Davis
