Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GregN This has worked out very well so far- in full disclosure, I do not have a cooling system and this simply controls a boiler-operated forced hot water system. I tried a different Honeywell programmable thermostat (Model# RTH2410B) and this one is definitely worth the extra $15. While both are very easy to program, the cheaper model requires you to remove the entire face plate to change the batteries- during the initial install I had mis-aligned the face plate (poor instructions) and had to reposition it- in doing so it completely fell apart (the circuit board, screen, etc.). This one seems to go together much better, and the battery compartment swings out for easy replacement of the batteries, which is a warm welcome versus some of the other systems that require the entire face plate to be removed.
I would have given this 5-starts instead of 4 if it weren't for the size of the screws that secure the wires. I'm a fairly handy person and have a decent array of tools, yet still had to resort to an eyeglass repair kit for the initial install of the first failed thermostat (Model# RTH2410B). When I bought this one I also purchased a set of precision screwdrivers for around $7- I suggest you do the same if you don't already own such a set.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by unhappy Just like half of the 236 other reviews, the "inside" temperature reading is about 3-5 degrees cooler than the real temperature. Right on the box is says the thermostat has "precise temperature control". Precisely wrong!
Kind of sad because Honeywell used to be a good brand. Now they can't even get the basics right.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DianaLM Not a good purchase.
Had problems installing so called customer service. Spoke to a man in India. He was very rude and told me do this, are you done, do this, are you done? Impatient and rude. Spent 45 minutes with him. Had to get someone the come out. Turns out you have to unplug the power in the heater. Instructions just say to turn off breaker. Customer Service said the same. Turns out it was a 3.00 chip that burned out. With labor it cost almost 300.00. I only paid 48.00 for the thermostat. The inside temperature off by about 6 degrees. Contacted Honeywell and they said just to use the portable thermostat to figure it out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sharkaru Very easy to use.
This thermostat was easy to install and easy to program. I like how you mount the base and attach the wires to the base. Once you are done you snap the thermostat into place and start programming. You can pay a bit more and get the touch screen version and loose the buttons altogether. For my application the buttons are fine. This thermostat also is compact and has a fairly small footprint. I like it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Truchotman Nice, affordable thermostat.
Good job, Honeywell. Well built, versatile and super easy to install Saved me $200 compared to what the HVAC tech wanted for installing an inferior product!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LuckyHomeowner Bad customer service
I contacted Honeywell and was told that this was a direct replacement for my Honeywell T-8000C thermostat. It isn't. No matter what anyone tells you, it REQUIRES batteries to operate. I contacted Honeywell several times after I installed the thermostat and it wouldn't work. They offered no compensation or help for my problem. They told me that they ARE NOT responsible for the bad advice they gave me.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Makthemo Works Great For Us!
We purchased this programmable thermostat to use with our heat pump. We had tried a different brand programmable thermostat which claimed it could be used on a heat pump, but it literally freezed up both the outside heat pump & indoor air handler at the same time. But, Honeywell does the job...NO freezing at all!!! Now we can program different times & temps for to our liking! Thank you Honeywell!
The only complaint we have is that the thermostat temperature reading is off by 3-4 degrees, which is way too much, if you ask me! We have a weather station temperature system with indoor\outdoor sensors & our previous thermostat was also a Honeywell, but a non-programmable one...it had a very accurate temperature reading which matched the sensors of our weather station. I wish we could remedy this huge variance in temp reading!
