To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I liked this unit and even bought a 2nd one, then a month later I looked at it and it's broken. The screen is all messed up. This was in my upstairs bedroom just sitting on a table so nothing affected it. This was the first one I bought in September 2020 so it lasted me a good 6-7 months. Replaced the batteries and still does this. I guess I'll see if my other one does it too.
Keep it in a controlled server room that stays a constant 58 degrees by the other 3 thermometers, thermostat, and sensors. This one will be within a degree..and then just decide to ramp up to +5 degrees and stay that way all day.. Then I can come back in the next day and it is back to normal or is a few degrees below the rest. This makes is completely useless as it has a +/- of 8 degrees. That is absolutely unacceptable in today's level of tech. Would you want a thermometer in your house that has a +/- of 8 degrees?
Great price so I had to try it. I needed a thrmo in the garage since I work there on things that are temperature sensitive.
Check it against 2 high-end units I have and it is right on the money. And, you can see it easily from a distance. I did not think the high/lo temp record would be useful but I was wrong, I refer to it a lot now.
Fairly certain this toy of a thermometer should be a joke gift only. There is hardly much good to say. The battery at least lasts a long time. It’s way off. Almost all the time. I could not suggest this to anyone who wants to know the temperature of a specific area.
However, if you are looking for a neat light that your children will enjoy looking at in the dark, this is your bet.
This was really nice in how it lights up and is easy to read but the humidity is off. I had four of them in a room with newborn puppies and all of them read differently for humidity , even in close proximity ... very disappointing because I over humidified the room trusting the accuracy of this .
I wish it had a slightly higher contrast as it takes a second to read when you are just looking in through the plastic window of a grow tent. Otherwise this is a great product and does everything I need it too well.
I like that it has a magnet on the back. I didn't know it did when I purchased it. It's accurate and easy to read. I like that it shows me the lowest and highest temps it has recorded, which gave me a good idea of how cold it can get in my apartment so I could figure out a reasonable temperature to leave the thermostat on.
