Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HDShopper Clear display, appears to work good
I purchased this for a music room to ensure proper humidity levels for guitars. It took about 10 minutes to adjust to the room. I almost returned it at first because the temperature appeared stuck on 81 degrees. However, after about 10 minutes the temperature was dead on, based on my IR thermometer. I have no method to assess the accuracy of the hygrometer, but based on other's reviews, I expect it be accurate. If I move it into the a/c vent air path, the humidity drops quickly, so it appears to have good sensitivity and responsiveness. I care about the humidity, not the temperature, so the fact that larger first number is the humidity and not the temperature is perfect for my use. I will likely purchase another one to take traveling in my guitar case. I just purchased this today, so I cannot comment on long term quality, but out of the box, I have no complaints. It does not have a back-light, but then I have no need to read it in the dark. The high/low record resets automatically every 24 hours based on the time of day you installed the battery.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hinksplace Compare it to a $215 Honeywell unit
Bought this unit and my friend who had a $215 Honeywell unit laughed at the price tag saying no way. I have only used it indoors but was within 1 percentage point of everywhere we place both units. I was surprised at how you can move a meter 10 feet and get different readings on both meters. Just glad he bought the expensive unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SouthTexasGuy Nice piece of equipment.
First off, I read the reviews before settling on making the buy; so reviews do help in making decisions. Very easy set-up; just popped in a battery and propped it up and it started working. It took a few minutes for the temp to stabilize and sort of match-up with the inside room temp. I understand that this product is not a NIST calibrated instrument so those of you who need very precise and reliable humidity and temp indicators--this is not for you. But for the average Joe who just needs to get a fairly good idea of what the numbers are then it is a very well priced instrument. The humidity in my living room was 50% (south Texas) and even if I give an estimated +/- 2 points on the display it's still of value to me. Now my next step is to get a dehumidifier and work the get the humidity down a few points. I like the display; it is easy to read and this little guy is unobtrusive. I can plop it down (or clip it on) where ever I want and it can be my silent little sentinel.

The hygrometer function in the unit I purchased is grossly inaccurate. The RH readiings were were off by -14 percent when compared with a properly calibrated professional quallity unit ( and also confirmed by the "salt test "). Other inexpensive units that I have previously purchased have been within <+-5% . BTW, these units were dispaled outside in the "greenhouse" area of my local HD store. Maybe these conditions aren't the best for the sensors. I returned the unit and will look for another brand .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FabulousBakerBoy Perfect tool for the job
The Accurite digital humidity and temperature monitor does its job very well. Humidity and temperature are displayed with large, easy to read numbers. The high and low temperature and humidity for the previous 24 hours are displayed as well. The unit is compact, and is not weighed down by unnecessary features (such as a clock).
I've got two, and they are great to move around the house to check for hot/cold spots, as well as to check humidity levels in out of the way places such as the basement. They are also useful to use in the bathroom after a shower to see how quickly the exhaust fan deals with the post-shower humidity.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jason Great, fairly accurate, monitor
The monitor has a very clear display which can be easily viewed at any distance or angle. It has a button on the back to display the temperature in either Celsius or in Fahrenheit. It also has a clip-on with a magnetic strip attached on the back which can also be turned into a stand to place the monitor in almost any part of your home.
Although there is no way to calibrate the monitor, the temperature and humidity readings are fairly accurate. Compared to 2 other thermometers and tested with a hygrometer calibration kit for relative humidity, the readings were accurate most of the time but can occasionally be off by as much as 2 degrees Fahrenheit or 2% RH.
Since I have only owned the product for a week, I can't say how durable the product is and if the readings can still be accurate in the long run. It does include a 1 year warranty but according to the manual, you must register the product online to be eligible for the warranty.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CoastalClass Nice value
This is a nice little thermometer / humidity monitor for the price. I wanted something digital but many were too much money. This was a nice low price. I have moved it around to several rooms but purchased it to see the temperature levels in my unheated basement. I was concerned about how cold it could get in the dead of winter. For this reason I love how this will display the high and low temperatures experienced.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 4Posterity Great monitor for the price!
I just bought this item the other day, looking for an inexpensive way to gauge temp/humidity, and came across this little gem. I was a bit skeptical at first , but after having compared the results to other meters within my home (a guitar case hygrometer and digital thermostat), the results seemed practically "dead on." For the price (and included display features) I find it very hard to complain about this purchase. Oh and yes...it does display in increments of 1 (degree and percent), despite what another reviewer had to say.
