Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by diy777 Garbage, but what other choices are there?
On my 3rd one of these now. Other reviewers are absolutely right that the temperature on the thermostat is never correct with the actual temp. Always off by 10+ degrees. Last one stopped working in the middle of the night (where my <1 year old sleeps). Took it out to see one of the terminals was completely burnt (pictured). This unit had only been in use for a little over a year (winter months only).
The main issue I have is finding another option. I can't seem to find any 4-wire 240v electric thermostats. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, but the bottom line is that these are awful products, and not reliable at all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappy Extremely disappointed
Have older model of this type of thermostat (not same model #) in all rooms in my house since 1966 when house was built. They are all working fine yet, except 2. Electrician replaced one with above model one year ago, and it worked about 6 months, and then it blew, making the room an inferno (glad I was home at the time). Purchased another one and had electrician install it about a month ago also, and if you want 68 deg., you have to set it at about 72-73 deg. Why can't they be made like the old faithful ones that lasted 40+ years???? Let's see how long this one lasts! Please, Honeywell, make this product into something to be proud of and trustworthy!! Let us know when this happens.

The manual electric thermostat I purchased for my wood burning pellet stove performed
excellent. It was easy to install and looks great.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Maine JUNK-same experience as BoBC's review (from 1/28/13)
I had the exact same experience as Bob C (see prior review from 1/28/13) and have gone through 2 of these over the past year. They work okay for the first few months but quickly become very unreliable and you have to turn the dial progressively higher to get the desired temperature. I also called Honeywell and they are particularly unhelpful. I disassembled the second unit to see if I could diagnose the issue. It appears the contacts that comprise the switch inside become corroded after many on/off switches (each of which appears to generate a small electric arc) and the contacts begin to act as a resistor and generate internal heat, which then turns off the thermostat before it reaches the desired temperature. Solution: I've replaced the second unit with the White Rodgers 1A66 thermostat (I only found it online-quite a number of sellers; Home Depot unfortunately doesn't seem to carry it in stores or online). It appears to be working perfectly after several months.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nhautotech last 3 to 6 years. pathetic
I replaced all of the thermostats in my house for cosmetic reasons with these because the old ones were decades old and now 6 years later half of them have already failed. I'm real disappointed in how down hill the quality has gone and will do some more research to find ones that should last longer than a few years.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KevinS First one fried after five years
I purchased this thermostat as an exact replacement for one that stopped working after about 5 years. There weren't really any other good options available for immediate pickup. I have about 8 others that are still working but, based on the other reviews, I will probably have more fry over time.

My electrician called to Gary, and he knew exactly which thermostat, to get for me.
It works fine, as far as I know as it was put in a rental house, and have not had any complaints, about it
Thank Gary, for both of us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Giant Just a basic thermostat but works just fine.
Was easy to install right out of the box and works great.
