I have a davis vantage vue which I paid about 700 for a number of years ago. I replaced the anemometer on it this year as it had seen a bit of wind over the years. Apart from that no issues. There are some compromises with the vue over the pro but if you can live with that then the price is good for a reliable unit.
I upload data to my own website, weather underground and the localweather.net.nz site. The latter has a forum that has lots of good info in it about options etc which is worth checking out
