Worthless reviews with zero weather station knowledge, intended just to get hits to generate ad revenue.

Gotta love this line, "One device does all that instead of mounting several sensors all over the place." As if having sensors all over the place is a bad thing. Pooof! Mind blown!  :shock:

The credit at the end of the article states that the freelance author, Corey Gunther, has written over 6,000 articles in the past decade covering a bit of everything. So he writes articles for a living at the rate of about 600 a year, or about two a day.

It would be interesting to know if he even owns a weather station. From his display of knowledge, I would rather doubt it.

VP2 comment: "You can even add-on additional things like a bigger Anemometer"

Hmmm, news to me. I wonder if it makes for bigger wind...

Perhaps. Thing is, the VP2 comes stock with the biggums as is.  :-"
