All things considered, a good value for the price. Only complaint is that it doesn't hold set temperature very well: drops a degree or two below setting before kicking in.
Recommend with reservations
I recommend this product with some reservations. The product is easy to install, runs well and is pretty easy to program. My reservations come from the fact that this purchase is a replacement for one I bought 3 years ago. On the original one I purchased, the backlight for the display broke after three years. The thermostat itself continued to work but it is very hard to read without the backlight.

LUX, you put Honeywell to shame. Nice job, nice appearance, good quality, great price.
