Rated 4 out of 5 by somewhatsatisfied Weather station evolved
We have been using LLBean weather stations for about eight years and Touch Key First Watch is the third generation we have used. They are very convenient for telling outside, upstairs and downstairs temps from each receiver location and we always have two in use plus three sensor unit locations.
First generation was simplest and entirely adequate. Second generation had solar assist to save batteries and worked very well. DO NOT like third generation as well since solar feature has disappeared and touch-key feature is a pain, since it changes settings when we do not wish to do so. Also touch key version lacks means of hanging it on a wall.
While all these units are very handy when they work, three of the first two generation units has failed after three or four years, so they are certainly not durable over the long run. I think LLBean should find a supplier who can make a more durable unit and go back to solar and wall-hanging features and remove touch-key feature.

This is the best little item I have ever had. Check it each day and would be lost without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheEducator Easy to set up, no excess, perfect temp info
I know I can check my phone for all weather info, but it's so much easier to know what temp it is outside and in by just looking at a thermometer. I bought one for home, set it up in my bedroom and know how to dress for the day. I liked it so much, I got a second one for my summer place. It is so easy to set up. Just know that you need to have a paper clip during set up so that you can hit the "reset" button on the unit. I set the sensor unit on the window sill between the window and the screen and it works great and I never have to install it on a wall. The main unit tells you in large, easy to read numbers the temp for both indoors and outdoors. Some of the other weather stations provide a lot more info, but they are huge or use tiny numbers. I like the size and simplicity of this unit for my purposes.

We purchased our first one of these probably 8 years ago. We live in Florida where it is either humid or freezing. Just recently the outside transmitter failed. We immediately ordered another one. The features have been improved and it took minutes to set up. We actually took our old receiver and put it in our upstairs bedroom so we can see the temperature from the main floor and upstairs.
Excellent product...we'd be lost without one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SusanLT Product does not work (outside temp)
Very disappointed in this LLB product. Should have read the rest of the reviews first, before buying. Like others, the outdoor temp worked the first 2 mins, then stopped. Even after changing batteries in both units, pressing reset, changing channels, and playing with distances from inside unit, could not get it to register outside temp for more than a few mins before it stopped working. It's going back! And now I still don't have an outdoor thermostat.

I've owned this unit for several years now and it has never failed to provide impeccable service. I can honestly say this product is a great value for the money, unlike many other products on the market today. Buy one, you won't regret it.
I might also add that L.L.Bean's customer service people (yeah Robin and Karen) are the best I've ever dealt with when it comes to answering questions......thanks Karen and Robin!

Second thermometer and like the first one, the outside temp only shows up for a little while and then cuts out. So frustrating.
