Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good Very good for the money. No instructions regarding placement of external sensor :( You need an extremely small screwdriver to fit batteries - fortunately I had one but it would be annoying to have to go and buy one. Stylish design.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bargain - but... Let me say first that for the price this is quite impressive, however there are a few points which should be mentioned. - The instructions make no mention of how to insert the batteries; I found out from a previous review on this site (FYI; both go "nose down"). - The battery compartment is held shut by what might be the world's smallest screw, which is very easy to lose. - The "remote sensor" is attached by a 1m cable. I can't think of any application for this unless you have snakes or spiders in a vivarium, but in that case you'd need something better than this to control their environment. - The transparent display is hard to read unless the device is carefully positioned. - I can't speak for the accuracy of the readings, though they seem broadly in line with other devices. Executive summary: great for the price but don't expect too much!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Value for money, poor instructions. Quite lot for your money, but instructions say nothing about the very tricky matter of fitting the batteries. You need a very small watchmakers crosshead screwdriver to remove the holding screw, and an equally small flat blade to prise open the cover. Then fit BOTH batteries nose down (an unusual arrangement) and carefully re-fit the cover. Place the unit against a pale background (no backlight, I think).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great I bought one of these as a stocking filler. Unfortunately the tiny screw would not come out to insert the batteries. Got a replacement, sadly the same thing - can't get the screw out it just turns round and round. Have now prised the back off and got the batteries in. Slightly tempremental now as the back is used to hold the batteries in. Hmmm

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price but RH readings can be +/-5 degrees out The min/max feature is very useful for tracking humidity / temp overnight etc. You should calibrate these against a more accurate sensor. I have 3 and they are consistent about 10 degrees of difference in the RH readings. (at least) So I average out the three to get an more accurate reading.

I can't seem to change the time on the clock. The instruction leaflet doesn't explain very much at all.

"This is a stand for the unit to be stood upright." This threw me, too - but then realised that the bar acts as a prop should you wish to have the unit 'upright' ( but inclined slightly ) without using the black, weighted stand.
