the WMR300 is like the Davis VP
you can separate out the sensors (rain/temp/wind) (via increasing the length of the cables etc)
no backward steps in reality

Now Cabelas says expected to ship in 4-5 weeks (instead of 5-6 weeks about a week ago).  So, that's at least some, admittedly meager, evidence in favor of it being a real ship date rather than just optimistic advertising.

Has anyone seen the WMR300 posted for sale (or pre-orders) on any other websites yet?  Any links?

Available today on the OS website:

At $650 US. Seems to be in stock, at least as far as I was able to go on the web site w/o actually entering a credit card.

Any word when the available sensors(UV/Solar) are going to be made available to the public?

I've never owned an OS system, but a couple of quick observations...

The new system sure better be darn good for an asking price of $650!

Second, as seen in the attached photo, why is a company based in the U.S. showing METRIC readings on its console for its publicity shoot? I was like  :evil:

These may be minor points / observations to some, but to me these kinds of things make or break a deal. Sorry.

...because only the "marketing & selling" arm is in USA, the "design & manufacturing" arm is in China.
