Need a good affordable weather station

Thought this would be a good place to start.

I need a good weather station that gives you acurate readings for a budged price.

Items I would like to have included:

Wind Speed

Computer Compatible for upload on weather underground

Humidity

Pressure

Budget friendly.

I was looking at Amazon.com and they had lots of positive reviews on the Ambient Weather Station WS-1070 / 1090 / 2080 & WS-5300.

Does anyone have any experience with any of these units.

Or does anyone have any suggestions on any brand/model.

Thanks in advance.

I have the Ambient WS-2080. It's been up and running for about 2 years now. Overall I've been very pleased with it. It comes with EasyWeather software but I run Cumulus software by Sandaysoft which is more versatile. I've modified the rain gauge and wind vane, and replaced the anemometer once. I've modified the sensor sun shield by converting it to a fan aspirated unit which is solar powered. The wireless receiver works reasonably well. It occasionally loses contact with the sending unit, but not for long (one or two minutes at a time, once or twice a day). It is up and running on the web at »magnoliaweather.net
