This versatile system forecasts local weather; automatically sets andupdates the time, day, and date; keeps track of the indoor temperature; andemploys a remote, wireless sensor to record the outdoor temperature up to 100feet away. For forecasting weather within 12 to 24 hours, the6-1/4-by-4-1/4-inch monitor employs a built-in electronic barometric-pressuresensor and then displays the upcoming weather with an icon (sunny, partly sunny,cloudy, rain/snow) on its backlit LCD screen. For keeping track of time, themonitor is equipped with a radio receiver tuned to the U.S. atomic clock; thisenables the monitor to maintain split-second accuracy by automaticallyadjusting, if necessary, to the atomic clock's signals six times every 24 hours.From those signals, the monitor also displays the date, the day, and the timezone for which the user has set the clock. Also, the clock automatically adjustsfor daylight saving time and for leap year. The monitor beams the time and theoutdoor temperature onto a wall or ceiling in large, red numerals for easyreadability. If the monitor is in battery-mode (four AA batteries included),pressing the clock's snooze bar will beam the data for five seconds. If themonitor is plugged into a wall socket with an AC adapter (included), theprojection will be available either for five seconds with the snooze bar orcontinuously if a continuous-beam control is set. The projection beam comes froma device mounted next to the clock. The device pivots so the beam can beprojected onto any surface, and a dial focuses the beam for clarity. You canalso choose to have the temperature displayed in either Celsius or Fahrenheit.--Fred Brack ... Read more

Although there are some cool features on this clock, it doesn't do all that it should. I'll simply list the pros and cons and you can decide for yourself.

Pros:
- you can instantly know the weather outside and the temperature inside.
- the forcast prediction and graphics are remarkably accurate.
- projection on ceiling is very cool at night - you can look straight up as you lie in bed and know the time.

Cons:
- even though it plugs in, the clock runs on batteries. the plug is only for the projection part.
- the alarm wouldn't wake up the lightest sleeper - it's just a little beep like your microwave makes. it just makes them more often as you sleep through it.
- the projection doesn't work at all if any light is on in the room and it's really only usefull on a perpendicular surface - otherwise it's stretched and half out of focus.

So as a second clock and something neat to have, this is fine. Don't get it as your primary alarm clock if you want to make it to work on time and not get fired :-)

5-0 out of 5 stars ITS THE BEST BED SIDE CLOCK EVER !!!
The projection is awesome! The alarm starts quiet then gets loud enough to wake anyone (except the dead or the laziest). The weather forcasting works great never wrong. Knowing the time and outdoor temp as soon you open your eye's right on the ceiling or wall is wonderful! Never needs to be set I receive the signal fine and I live in northern rural Minnesota. Buy it you will love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT!!!
I had this for a year now, and I NEVER had a problem with it. *Knock wood*. It does what it says, and it is very accurate, and the weather forecaster is pretty acurate too. A must buy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Too Little....
Love the clock but wish the buttons were a little less cumbersome - hard to manipulate with just one hand. Indoor temp. reads a little high. Perhaps the projector heats the internals. Other than that, the time and outdoor temp. on the ceiling is quite entertaining!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great idea; poor design
I bought this clock for my technophobic mother and she loves it. The display on the ceiling is ideal for her; she is severely near-sighted in one eye and almost blind in the other. She can see the display on the ceilng in the middle of the night without any problems. In addition to the display, she appreciates being able to see the temperature, both inside and out.

Another feature of this clock that is ideal for her is that the regular display is only lit when you want it to be lit. There are no glaring red numbers staring at you all night. When you want to see the time/temp, press the snooze button and the display lights for a few seconds.

Now for the negatives of this great little gadget. It is very lightweight and the buttons sit smoothly at the bottom of the clock. It is difficult to tell one button from another or to even push the buttons to set the alarm, view, etc. Raised braille like nobs on the buttons would be helpful as well as making the base wider so it would be more difficult to knock it over. Also, if the clock is running off battery, you have the option of displaying the time on the ceiling only when you press the snooze button. However, if you use the A/C adapter, you're choices are continuous display or no display. The slide switch that controls this is on the side of the clock and is difficult to find by feel.

Despite the few shortcomings of this clock, I still think it's wonderful and recommend it to anyone who is tired of squinting at glowing red dots to see what time it is; who wants to know the temperature both inside and out; and who always wants the correct time. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Overall Review
I purchased this product at J&R for around $149.00. I got it because I wanted something small and light with a FM tuner that could be used for running. I also had an impression that OS was a good company. It was my first MP3 player purchase.

I hooked up the device and installed the software on Win 2k with no problems. I loaded up a couple of albums pretty easily. The digimusic software provided with it is reasonable good, albeit somewhat slow.

However, my first indication that something was up when I charged it for about 4 hours and it didn't indicate a full charge. I took it out for a run and within 5 minutes the unit shut down and stopped functioning completely. I tried to get it to work by plugging it back in, but to no avail. I ended up returning it to J&R for a full refund.

I didn't get much time to play with all its features, but here's a quick set of pros and cons. Overall, I am glad I did not get stuck with this unit, of course, I haven't found a good one yet to replace it.

Pros
1. light
2. nice design, seemingly sturdy
3. one year warranty (rio is 90 days)
4. supposedly water proof (1 meter), a salesman tried to say it was for 'divers'
5. good strong clip (but tight)
6. rechargable battery

Cons
1. it broke
2. the sound volume is ridiculously low, you couldn't hear it unless you turned it way up. I wonder if at its max whether I would be able to hear well with traffic.
3. it comes basically in two pieces and to plug it in/charge it you have to unscrew the smaller bottom part. The headphones are built into the bottom piece, which you have to leave off if you want to use other head phones.
4. The water proof earplugs don't really work well.
5. It comes with a bizarre pouch, but no arm strap.
6. The screen is really small and hard to read. The radio is hard to manuever around in, in either the preset of freq mode.
7. I played with RIO forge player and found its features much more intuitive and useful than the OS player.
8. charges (slowly: 3 hours) via USB, no external charger and does not charge when your computer is off
9. the buttons are really, really small and hard to press

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Player..... Not So Great Headphones
I bought this player for lap swim but it is impossible to keep the earbuds in my ears.The player works great but just not for lap swim.I use it now in the hot tub.

4-0 out of 5 stars First solution that works for waterproof music
I got this as a Christmas present and I love it. I had tried 2 attempts at waterproof music in the past (a waterproof case for a regular mp3 player, and a waterproof radio made by speedo), and both were miserable failures. It works really well for lap swimming.I have 2 suggestions for improvement- wish the volume went up higher, becuase sometimes the earbuds come slightly out of my ears and it's hard to hear.Also, the cord to the ear buds is too long and drags in the water, I have to tuck it into my suit.

1-0 out of 5 stars Trash, do not purchase
I bought the 512MB version of this product, plugged it into my computer to charge (it charges from the USB port), it flickered a few times then died completely.I contacted their customer service and have had absolutely no response or action.Apparently all they are interested in is taking your money and sending you a rather expensive plastic paperweight, as it can be used for almost nothing else.Build quality is also very poor (it is made in China).Shame on Oregon Scientific for selling such a piece trash and then not even answering any of the customer queries for return or replacement. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but works well
I've had mine for a few days, and am mostly happy with it, though it's taken a little adjusting:

1.When connecting to my Mac, though the Profiler sees it always, I have to turn it on and then plug in the usb cable at just the right time to get the Mac to mount it as a drive.It seems to be just after the logo goes away and the normal display appears.

2.Before I figured that out, I called OS Saturday and got right in.While they didn't know what the problem was, they did say they'd send me a shipping label to send it in for repair.

3.Run the goggle straps over the earbuds to keep them in place, and do it before you get any water in your ears, or you'll have a hard time hearing it.

4.The volume max is about a normal listening level.I had to adjust my breathing to breath out to the side just before my mouth comes out of the water to take a breath --- otherwise, the bubbles drown it out.


I don't know what amazon is smoking, but I've not found any voice recorder in it --- there's no microphone or input.

4-0 out of 5 stars WATERPROOF MP3!
Well,
I've had this product for about a week now and I havent had any problems with it.When i first pluged it in, it turned on and then went off but I soon found the problem was I had not inserted the USB 2.0 cable far enough in.This fixed I have so far had no problems with it.The radio works great, I use it at the gym where they have TV's on radio FM broadcasters and its fine.I used to have a sony sport armband radio for working out and it was a lot bigger with no storage.It also had a hard time picking up the signal in some areas of the gym and the cord was really use.The oregon has had no problem with this and I am happy with the product.The 256mb is plenty of music for a workout, but if your looking for stricktly an MP3 player check somewhere else.I would rate it a five if they supplied an arm band or something for running but all in all I am happy with it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not impressed
I'm now on my second MP120 and just been advised this also needs replacing. The first only had one working earphone. The second worked OK but I was unable to forward or rewind between tracks so I guessed a firmware upgrade would probably fix this - applied as detailed in the manual from the Oregon Scientific website and now it won't turn on.

Advise from Oregon - send back to the vendor for a replacement!

I've will almost have spent more on postage than the original purchase!

1-0 out of 5 stars Utter Rubbish & Very Poor Customer Support
I bought the 512MB model of this product a few days ago, set it up, plugged it into my computer and it worked for less than one minute.I have sent several e-mails to Oregon Scientfic and their selling agent (ExploraTrac), they have not even bothered to answer them.Contacted them on their 800 number several times and was told I would be contacted, no response.This is not a cheap product (at least in terms of price), however, in terms of quality it is absolute and utter rubbish and the companies customer service is non-existent.I would strongly recommend that no one purchase this product.I would rate it at zero stars if possible, the only thing they did correctly was take my money and ship this piece of junk to me.

4-0 out of 5 stars Finally a waterproof MP3 player!
I purchased this player for the sole purpose of using it while I swim laps and I have not been disappointed. I've been using it for two weeks now and it's a great little player. My only complaint is that it is difficult to get the earbuds positioned correctly. At first I was afraid if they popped out while swimming it would be all over for them but that has not been the case. I'm not sure if these earbuds would stay in place if I didn't pull my swim cap down to help secure them. It's very important that you remove the rubber earbuds after each use and allow the underlying parts to dry out. You can use regular headphones with this player if you don't need the waterproof feature. Overall I'm very happy with this player. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Lowest Cost, Highest Quality Water Proof Option for MP3 /FM
A great product.The closest item I found mounts on top of your swim cap, and sends vibrations thru your skull for a cost of $299.That unit is very funky looking to say the least.This is a great unit.If you expect the earbuds to staying in while swiming with the headphone wires splashing around, you are being totally unrealistic.I write that because of one of the other review.Wear a swim cap silly - then they stay in.The construction is great, because not only is it waterproof - but by default it is perspiration proof, dust proof and beer proof.It's cool looking small, and Apple offers nothing like it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good idea. Horrible earphones
I swim about 3 miles a week.I was tired of couting the tiles on the bottom of the pool due to boredom while swimming.The waterproof MP3 seemed to be the answer.I already had a waterproof swim radio from another company.That one lasted 1 lap before it was usless.This one is much nicer.There are a couple of problems:
PROBLEM 1 - The earbud caps are horrible.They are to soft and too big.I can't make it 1/2 of a lap without water leaking into my ear and cancelling out 99% of the sound.One thing that seems to work.I took the earbud caps from my Swimmer's choice radio and used them on the MP3 player.These are not as soft, and a little smaller.This works much better.Unfortunatly, I lost 1 of the caps.I wrote swimmer's choice 5 times asking to buy just the caps.No response.I bought a set of waterproof headphones from www.waterproofcases.net.I pulled the caps off of these and now use them on my MP3 player.These are much better at keeping the water out of your ears.WARNING.The caps from waterproofcases.net are glued onto their headphones.Take them off carefully.

They still leak every once in a while.Mostly when you push off of the walls, but the sound is much improved

PROBLEM 2-This is made to attach to swim goggles.The cords to the earbuds are 3 feet long.This is a minor inconvience.wrap them up with a rubberband and tuck them into your goggle strap.

The good news:

1) It's still a lot better than counting the tiles on the bottom of the pool.

2) They work with standarf headphones out of the water

Bottom line.Plan on spending the extra $30 on better headphone caps from somewhere else, but still the best idea for swimming since the swimsuit.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great Idea poor execution
The idea of creating an underwater MP3 player with quality sound is far from a reality. This product is expensive and poorly constructed. The sound quality when you are able to keep the earplugs in your ear is extremely poor to non existent.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic idea.
It's a fantastic idea because if you're like me, when you swim laps after awhile you get a bit bored.I bought this back in Nov. 2004.I've only used it in the water once. (Here's why)
I hooked it onto my goggle strap and wrapped the headphone cord around them too (It's way too long).I had an extremely hard time getting the waterproof headphones to stay into my ears.(They are a little big and oddly shaped.)In the end I had to pull my swim cap over my ears and hope they stayed.They unfortunately didn't, I was consistently adjusting and putting them back into my ears as they would fall out of my ears when swimming. Another thing that I noticed was when I was swimming I could hear my music when my ears where out of the water, but when my ears got covered with the water, the sound wasn't clear, it was as if the music was far away, like the music was being played from the side of the pool instead of in my ear. I had it on the loudest setting yet it wasn't very loud when swimming.When I had finished my swim, I noticed that there was water behind the rubber covers on the headphones. Couple of days later it looks a little rusty.I haven't used it in the water since.I don't want it to break.I use it dry-side now.It's lightweight and shockproof, good for running.
It'll be great when they work out the kinks, if it had better waterproof headphones it would be my best gadget and a definate must have in the pool.BTW- there is totally no way you could use this in the ocean (despite what their marketing people say), it wouldn't stay on you and it would totally corrode. ...

Oregon Scientific's pedometer is an affordable high-techfitness tool packed with functions.

Though light, it is still very durable, andonce it's clipped to a waistband there's no need to worry about itslipping off. It computes and displays distance walked, number of stepstaken, calories burned, and time of day--all displayed with backlitillumination of the screen for easy viewing--and measures 2-1/2 by1-1/4 by 1-1/2 inches. This pedometer runs on 2 LR44 batteries. --A.J. Rathbun ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Can't beat the price
I'm recovering from back surgery and wanted a way to know--rather than guess--how close I come to meeting my daily walking goals. This comparatively inexpensive pedometer doesn't achieve perfection, but it does get the job done.

On the up side, it's small, easy to read and includes a user-controlled back light. The belt clip is extremely secure, and the screen displays everything from actual steps walked to total distance and calories burned. It was easy to adjust the stride length and body weight. My steps are tracked accurately with the "sensitivity" slider control set in the middle, rather than all the way to the left as many other reviewers suggest. I have learned that there is a bit of wiggle room on mine--if I count off 20 steps, it might say 19 on one set and 21 on the next. In the long run--I bothered to count all the way to 100 several times--it was spot on.

On the down side, the cover is extraordinarily difficult to open. Difficult as in I have wrestled with it for nearly five minutes just to pop it open. (I now don't close it quite securely. It doesn't fall open.) And I can see some folks might be bothered by the imprecision over short term counting. And for some reason, if I clip it to a pants pocket, rather than on a belt loop or my waist band, it doesn't seem to read anything at all. I have no clue why this is so, but it is a little disapointing.

Considering that every other pedometer I looked at was more than twice the price of this model, I'm astonished at how well it works. Perfectionists will likely prefer a more expensive version, but for short term use, casual interest, easy-going folks or even something to help get the kids more active, you can't go wrong.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great price...Accuracy? Not so much.
The price of this product is what sold me comparing to other pedometers. I bought it being aware of the problems other reviewers have stated. The "happiness" ratio seems about 40% at best. The thumb clip has been problematic but you can work around it. But is that what you want in a product? The biggest flaw I have found is in its accuracy. After several tests of 50 steps the unit averaged being "off" by being over 40 steps...on the lowest sensitivity. Disappointing. I wouldn't mind it being off by being under because I would exercising more and thats good. But this way I feel like its cheating me at the cost of my health. I will continue to use this unit but I will be on the lookout for a new unit. I can not make a recomendation for this product.

I've had mine for two days and agree with the others about the painful thumb button on the locking mechanism. I just shaved the little plastic catch down a little with an Xacto knife: problem solved.

The step counts seem accurate to me and I haven't noticed any spurious ones while the unit was sitting on a table or anything. I believe there are defective ones out there, but mine seems fine.

I'd recommend it, and I'd recommend shaving or sanding that little plastic ridge down to save the tip of your thumb!

5-0 out of 5 stars It's great!
I bought this item about 3 months ago and LOVE it. I saw some reviews where people complained that it counted steps when they weren't moving and didn't count steps when they were moving. I had some of this trouble too and found that it was usually where I placed the pedometer. You just have to experiment some to find the best place to put it for how you move (including how you move when you're sitting at your desk).

I have tested it out several times to check for accuracy--counting my steps as well as those on my pedometer. This may seem a bit manic, but I manually counted out more than 500 steps in a couple of these times. In all cases, the pedometer was right on with my count (occasionally it was off by one or two steps only).

1-0 out of 5 stars My aching thumb!!!
I'm not sure just how accurate this pedometer is. I've been SITTING in front of my computer since I put it on and it reads 141 steps so far and I have it on the lowest sensitivity level.

More importantly, the tip of my right thumb is killing me from wrestling with the lid to get it open. The release button doesn't push in and release anything. You auctually have to use your thumb to pry it open.

I will try using it tomorrow without closing the lid, but this seems to be a bit ridiculous.

Oh, It now reads 148 steps... ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Oregon Scientific's compact handheld WR-102 radio receives all seven NOAA weather radio channels and can be programmed to display only warnings and alerts that occur in your local area. The radio continuously receives broadcasts and sounds the radio speaker whenever an alert comes through so you can be sure to be on top of the latest weather news.

The WR-102 uses Specific Area Messaging Encoding (SAME) technology, giving you the option of screening out unwanted broadcasts and receiving alerts only for the geographical areas you program (up to six counties of your choice). It also receives National Weather Service broadcasts and alerts vital to survival in the aftermath of earthquakes, storms, floods, explosions, radiation emergencies, toxic chemical spills, and other life-threatening disasters.

The LCD's backlit display assures the best readability. This water-resistant radio also doubles as a digital alarm clock with snooze feature. It includes a belt clip and stand. The WR-102 runs on three AA batteries (not included) and also has a plug-in jack for AC power. ... Read more

  • Portable weather and hazard alert radio
  • Digitally tunes all 7 NOAA weather/hazard channels
  • SAME (Specific Area Message Encoding) technology allows you to preprogram up to 9 specific areas of your choice

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Durable Product
I purchased this radio directly from Amazon for the lowest price around. When I opened the box and looked through the manual I found it was very easy to program. I had the radio and same codes set up within less than 10 minutes. The radio came with a set of batteries installed from the factory (however, they were not alkaline as recommended in the manual). Once I pulled the battery tab the unit fired up. I scanned to my local weather channel and to my amazment it picked up the signal, crystal clear and loud without any distortion, considering the small stub antenna on the radio! The belt clip is also a nice feature as is the back lit blue LCD screen (nice and bright). Only drawback is it does not come with an AC adapter; however, its sister unit the WR103 does, but does not come in the fancy sport yellow and was about $15.00 more than this unit. I am sure a standard AC plug from Radio Shack will work fine to power the unit; but since you will be outdoors with it the AC power will not matter much. HA HA HA. oly other negative is the alarm mode. Unless you are a light sleeper, don't count on the alarm beep to wake you. it is faint with short beeps. I contacted Oregon Scientific about this and they confirmed that the alarm signal is very low. I give this model a perfect 5 for durabilty, ease of use and the great Amazon price tag with FREE shipping!!! If you are looking for a portable wx radio this is the one!

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Reliable portable weather alert !
This small hand held weather radio and alert system offers a great source of NOAA weather alerts and continuous weather forecasting. We use this colorful radio when on the road and out in the field to remain aware of severe weather conditions. Straight forward instructions combined with NOAA website information help educate and prevent weather related incidents. Convenient AC adapter port allows for continuous power from direct current supplies if desired. The price of batteries is a small price to pay for the safety and benefits afforded by this pocket size weather radio. We wouldn't want to travel without it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Literally a lifesaver!
I love this company - Oregon Scientific. I had bought their photo frame as a gift for my father-in-law and loved it so much that I shopped for another gift for Father's Day and found this emergency alert monitor. It notifies you of severe weather, civil emergencies, child abductions (amber alerts) and a host of other life-threatening dangers. I have a friend with another model and his battery life is very short compared to this unit. We throw it in the car when we go camping, skiing, fishing - anytime we're away from home and need to know about weather or emergencies. It's a great product that we'll never be without.

5-0 out of 5 stars Tornado Alley
We live in an area that does get some severe weather--it's not Oklahoma, but one morning early, I was awoken by the distinctive sound of a tornado or strong down-wind rushing by the house, sounding like a train. And we get big thunderstorms. I got this radio because our local stations are weak and don't broadcast local weather reliably.

The radio comes in a holster that can clip on a belt, and it has a tether. It is sport-yellow, and obviously designed for boaters. The three batteries (not alkaline, but you can replace with these) are included so you can test that radio out right when you get it. By going onto the NOAA website, you can find your local NOAA station and tune the radio to the one of seven frequencies, indicated by letter, that is right for your area.

While tuning in the frequency was a bit tedious, once it's set up, turning the radio on is easy. You push the top right button and on comes your local NOAA station. In our area, the marine forecast comes on the quarter and three-quarters of the hour, and the local station broadcasts at the top of the hour. If there is severe weather in the broadcast area, a "statement" flashes on the very readable, backlit LCD screen. If there is a severe weather warning, a warning flashes, and the operating light goes from green flash to red flash.

If you don't want to listed to the continuous-loop broadcast, you can press the ON button once more, and a circle-with-a-dash comes on the LCD. This indicates the radio is on squawk-mode. If a warning or statement is issued, the radio will come on and inform you about the weather.

Press the ON button once more, and it's on MUTE--so you will only see statement or warning indicators if you look at the operating flashing light on the upper right corner or on the screen for any statements from NOAA. Press once more, and the radio is now OFF. If you want to sleep, but be alerted of weather hazard, the squawk setting is great. It will wake you right up. If you just want to wake up at a specific time, there is an alarm clock built in, and the LCD screen always shows the time and day, as well as the station you are tuned in to.

Summary: Boaters, this is CHEAP insurance, if your craft does not have an elaborate navigation and radio system. Homeowners in areas that get severe weather and golfers and sports enthusiasts can also benefit from this radio.

The volume is controlled by arrows up and down on the left side. The only defect to this unit is a lack of AC adapter, though you can purchase one if you intend to run this on your desk at home. The form factor is good--strong, non-slip plastic in a hand-friendly shape, sculpted to be held easily, again, probably with boaters in mind.The outlets for AC adapter are covered wtih plastic plugs, so you can tie the tether somewhere on the boat if you are worried about it going overboard, and the plug coverings make it water-resistant.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent but not easy to use
This radio is the most sensitive weather radio I've ever used. It pulls in weak signals with ease and has great audio quality.

However...

Its controls are needlessly complex and non-intuitive. For example, to change the channel you don't just press the "channel" button -- you press and hold the channel button for two seconds, wait for an indicator to flash, then press the up-down buttons to select the desired channel.

Overall highly recommended, but it's imperative to read the instruction manual carefully in order to accomplish even the simplest operations. (Like turing the radio on and off!) ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Works well but strap is too big
I used to have a Polar heart monitor but lost the watch. I decided to go with this model because it's less expensive. I have an average women's size body and the adjustable strap that goes around your chest is too big for me. Since the smallest that the strap adjusts to is too big, I have it adjusted with a bunch of the strap material flopping around on my back (I didn't have this problem with Polar). It's annoying and will require a sewing experiment some time soon. The heart monitor part works well though. Mine came with a neato bag and bike or exercise equipment holder for the transmitter (watch). ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Initial impressions
****

Lots of plus points, one negative. I'll start with the positives.

First, impressive packaging. Someone put a lot of thought into a really neatly designed pack that was easy to open and protected the scale and its equipment extremely well. UPS handled the shipment well, but even if they hadn't I think the scale would have come through ok.

Next, the scale and the remote display have a quality 'feel' about them. They have a painted satin stainless steel finish which appears to be quite durable and is warm to the touch. If it was real stainless steel I doubt it would be pleasant to step onto on a cold morning!

There are four individual memory settings, and one guest setting with no memory. The scale just has an LCD readout for your weight, but the wireless remote unit also displays the time, date, weight and Body Mass Index (BMI is an indication of the amount of fat you're carrying!). These figures can be recalled at the touch of a button so you see how well (or badly) you're progressing over time. The scale switches off when not in use and the remote display shows the time and date when on standby. The remote display requires two screws to hang it on a vertical surface, or it has legs which can support it on a counter top.

To weigh yourself you step on the scale, stand still, and wait for a couple of seconds so it can register your weight and beep. You then press a button on the remote display to see the weight come up, and then press a button to select your memory slot (1, 2, 3 or 4). Next, press and hold the "MEM' button for a couple of seconds, which enters that reading into memory and alternately displays your weight and BMI. This all takes longer to explain than to perform.

The readings appear to be repeatable to within a couple of decimal points or so. They claim to 0.02lb which seems to stand up.

Now for the negative.............. the instructions (or lack thereof). As well as being written out of order (how to change the date is on page one, but how to actually install the batteries and perform an essential synchronization is a secret until page five), the procedure for entering your height, which is essential for measuring your BMI, is entirely missing!!!

I used the free customer service number (fifteen minute wait) to find out what to do. They knew exactly what I wanted, hooray, but couldn't explain why it was missing from the instructions, boo! Anyhow, to save you a phone call, the procedure to set your height is to first press the top left button, then select the user number. Then, press and hold the 'SET' button until the display flashes, when you set your height with the arrow buttons. Finally, press 'SET' again. Repeat the process for other users. Phew!

Finally, Amazon had the best price and, as usual, delivered several days before anticipated (got to love that!). The abysmal instructions cost Oregon Scientific one star. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding for a camera this price and size.
First off, I have been a film and digital photographer for 30+ years. I have owned more than 6 digital cameras going back 10 years. My current best camera is the Canon G6.

Now to the DS6639.
Although I have only used this camera for one day, I am very impressed with the variety of settings, its size, its excellent and intelligent menu system, and the quality of pictures it produces on extra fine, largest setting. Although this camera is listed as orange in color, it is actually a beautiful bright copper. Positives include surprisingly nice pictures that are perfectly exposed and sharp with excellent color matching... better than many expensive cameras, a nice solid feel, exposure settings, ISO settings, EV settings, WB settings, flash settings, etc. It has a nice movie mode even though it is only 10 frames per second, so it is not the quality of more expensive, faster cameras. Not as slim or as light as the logitech 130, a camera I have owned, it is not that much thicker or heavier, and considering the nice LCD, better flash, better pictures, a card slot for extra storage, and nice carrying case, this is a better camera for the money. The viewfinder works much better than most pinhole stick cameras. Pictures show softness around the edges, but not dramatically so, there is some flare and purple fringing but they are not bad either. Noise in low light conditions and in places where the flash does not reach is noticeable not not a big issue either.

Negatives are few: it is S L O W. Time on takes a good five seconds with equal time or more to process each picture after it is snapped. Time delay from time shutter release button press to picture taking is minimal and not a problem. The only other factor to consider is the fact that the camera is slippery, but a nice wrist strap saves the day. There is no cover for the lens and since it sticks out, it is exposed. There are no covers for the connection points either, but carrying it in the case should keep dust and dirt out.

The software is fine but not needed for Windows XP. It comes with all cables, including an RCA cable for TV viewing. Pictures look fine on TV or computer. Instead of the software that comes with it, I recommend Picasa 2, a free photo software by google.

I will be taking many pictures outdoors tomorrow around Lake Tahoe, where I live and will post them. I will also take video for better evaluation. I will update this review when I post the pictures.

FOLLOW-UP

After taking many dozens of shots with the camera, I can add the following: the good news is that it uses 2 AAA batteries; the bad news is that it uses 2 AAA batteries. Why? AAA batteries are very convenient, but the amount of power required to run and LCD for more than a dozen pictures is greater. So, do not expect to get any where near the number of pictures claimed if you use the LCD, which, by the way, is as easy (difficult) to see in bright sun as my Canon G6. Just be sure to wear a very wide brimmed hat. The optical viewfinder is good and works well, and that is the only kind of shooting to get a couple of dozen pictures out of a new set of batteries.

The ACP-EP Memory Mobile Storage 256MB Secure Digital SD Card - EPSD/256 works very well in the camera and did not even need to be formatted. I do not know if it will work with higher capacity SD or MMC cards, so better stick with 256MB max.

One tip: BE SURE to set the camera back to single shot mode after taking movies, otherwise, you may wonder why the camera is taking so long to process a single shot. I learned the hard way.

Speaking of movies, they are very small in frame size but acceptable on the computer screen with media player kept small. On a TV they are terrible. Another tip: When putting the camera back in its carrying case, be careful not to hit the on button.

Color correction on the computer is necessary for many shots, as well as improving contrast, but once that is done, the shots for 3x5 prints and even 8x10s are fine.

If 4.5 stars were allowed, that would be my rating, and I debated whether to give it 4 or 5 stars. In the end, I will stick with the 5 since it offers much for little money... if you are willing to do some adjusting for scenic shots and are willing to carry lots of batteries (my rechargables did not work at all).

4-0 out of 5 stars For $70, very impressive!
I bought this camera over a "USB stick" camera because it had two things most of those lack: a flash and a preview display.

This camera is everything I thought: point and click and reasonable quality images.Not HIGH quality, but for $70 well worth it. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not mentioned in description
Note, that I have not used the product yet.These are just -out-of-the-box impressions.The description states that it is "Compatible with Oregon Scientific's wireless weather station".However, be warned that you MUST own that unit.
The WGR968 is ONLY a transmitter and completely worthless unless you have the weather station.
Also, (sarcasm warning) could they have printed the manual using a SMALLER type style? It is printed in english, french, spanish,german, but only for people with VERY good eye sight.

5-0 out of 5 stars Anemometer review
Have had this unit for about 10 months and it has performed great.Easy to set up, and provides accurate readings. The wireless feature is great, given the need to get the unit at least 20 feet above any surrounding obsticals.The unit is solid and has had no problems.A good unit for the price.If you are considering an anemometer, keep in mind that it must be located well above any buildings so the wind is not affected by the wind deflection of roofs, trees etc.Thus, the biggist problem can be getting the unit high enough on a solid mounting.Mine is on a 35'high 2" pipe, secured to the side of the house, and well grounded.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Weather Tool
Snow and cold.Combine the cold with wind and you have yourself a low wind chill factor.This unit measures windspeed and then sends the info to the main unit (which you must purchase separately).The unit combines the outdoor temperature with the windspeed and automatically calculates wind chill.It works wonderfully and really comes in handy before heading off to work.It is solar powered with a battery backup, so make sure you have chosen the proper area in which to place the unit.I'm a weather buff, so of course I love it! ...
