Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by reviewer999 the worst thermostat
I have worked with quite a few thermostats, and this is the worst. It has up to 3 to 7 degrees C between the on/off triggers.
That means if you want it to always be at least 21C, you may need to set it to 26-28. Incredibly inefficient and the huge heat fluctuation is also very uncomfortable.
A good thermostat will have a tight 1-1.5 degree variability.
We installed 100 of these in the building I live in, and every one should be replaced.
This product should be banned due to it's energy in-efficiency.

I have 2 of these thermostats and they work flawlessly. The installation was simple as is adjustment. Perfect for applications that don't require precise or scheduled control.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tbayt Thermostat fine- poor instructions
The wiring diagram that s included in the package is poorly written and misleading. The double pole wiring diagram actually references a 'neutral' wire coming from the source, rather than 2 lines, as is required by this type of circuit. If you search for a double pole thermostat wiring diagram online, it shows the correct terminology that should be used. There is no neutral wire used in 240v heating, unless there is a fan for forced air also in the unit.
Also, just an FYI on the other commenter stating that since installing a double pole breaker, their rooms now warm up unlike before. This statement is not true as a result of the thermostat being single or double. More than likely it was either wired incorrectly when using the single pole, or the original thermostat was not functioning properly. Having a double or single pole thermostat does not change the heat output of any unit. Logically, it is more likely that the original wiring included the use of a neutral wire rather than two lines, making the heater completely ineffective at produng heat.

This was easy to install and the double pole makes a huge difference. I used to have a single pole and I could never get the room warm. With the double the room heats up faster and stays warm. I'm now converting every thermostat to double.
