I purchased the Ambient Weather Station WS-2902A for $169 on Amazon and rate it a thumbs up based on price, features and ease of use. The WS-2902A replaces my previous WS-1400-IP which had served me well over the last 4+ years but the rain gauge failed.

I really like the color display of the WS-2902A. My previous WS-1400-IP didn’t have a display so I needed to use a phone, tablet or computer to keep tabs on the weather.  I also like the redesigned sensor unit and the ability to clean the rain gauge without completely disassembling the sensor unit.  Another nice feature of the WS-2902A is that it consolidates the number of devices in the home to one. The WS-1400-IP had a server that required an Ethernet cable (the WS-2902A is wireless) and the WS-1400-IP had a separate indoor temperature and humidity sensor. The WS-2902A has everything built into the display unit.
