For over 15 years my $150 Lacrosse weather station worked flawlessly. I did not have to purchase any additional equipment, I didn't have to have any equipment replaced under warranty AND I didn't have any forced updates turn my equipment into unusable bricks. I have had an Acurite system for barely 2 years and I have had multiple problems. And if that wasn't bad enough, today I got an email telling me my 2 year old SmartHub will be unusable in 6 months. This sad company tries to make it sound like they are doing me a favor by offering a discount on the new equipment I would need. Sorry, I AM NOT INTERESTED! I have no intention on doing any further business with a company that does not consider existing customers and backwards compatibility in ALL their new product endeavors. Apparently Acurite could care less about anything but the bottom line making perfectly good equipment obsolete. I will spend the rest of my life making sure everyone I know does not EVER buy a single Acurite product. I can not think of a company in my life that has made so many incredibly STUPID business decisions in such a short time.
