Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by the13thDoctor Just what the Doctor ordered...
The unit is simple in design and function, has easy to understand instructions on setting it up, and works flawlessly with a mechanical simplicity that borders on genius. My older thermostat, a fancy computerized model that allowed for network connectivity and web-based controls, lost it's mind - literally. Suddenly my house was getting hot - fast, yet the 'stat said all was well. Go online and it said differently and it refused to let me change it. After many hours of Frankenstein's monster tormenting us, I gave in and went low-tech. My only CON on this unit is it's small size when compared to the larger more elaborate thermostats: wiring with older, thicker wiring like my house means you have to take extra care not to cross anything when installing it. Other than that, I love the simple use and ease of install. I'm never going back to the high-tech stuff like that again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Art Simple and reliable.
This same model of thermostat was installed by my installer when I had my HVAC system replaced. The original unit had a 6 degree error on the indicated therometer dial, but that did not affect how either heat or AC functioned.
I needed to replace the original due to outside damage, not of its own.
I found the same model at HD at a very reasonable price and I had several on the shelf to choose from. I had brought a thermometer with me to check the thermostat's dial accuracy and found one that matched the ambient temperature. There was a range of +/- 6 degrees F of those I checked and did not take. (At home I found the thermostat did track properly.)
So if you want to have any thermostat that indicates the temperature accurately, I would suggest using this approach; else, it does not really matter as to its functionality.
I particularly like that there aren't any batteries, it's simple, direct and I just set and forget. I should say that find no need or desire for a programmed unit.
I would have given this unit the highest rating in quality and overall except for what I found on the shelf, though I am thankful that HD did have several to choose from.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated Don't expect ant help from Honeywell Customer Support
Followed instructions for removal of the original Honeywell T87A thermostat and ended up with six wires, two of which didn't appear in the replacement instructions. Ended up calling Honeywell 3 times only to get told that I needed to call a repairman because they didn't have any information on the Honeywell T87A thermostat and Honeywell W226A Evaporator Sequening Control. At their request, I traced all the wires and found that they were wired exactly as shown on the W226A Box cover schematic but they refused to accept the terminal pinout labels telling me they don't use what they printed on the box cover. If your new thermostat isn't a wire for wire replacement, you won't get any help from Honeywell even if they originally made the product.

Worlds most popular thermostat. What else is there to say. Does exactly what it is supposed to. No more and certainly no less.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rsa7600 Lousy air temp calibration
Bought this to replace old 'gold/round' Honeywell thermostat that was installed in 1958. This new version is solid state and one would think have better accuracy for real air temperature in the house. But no. Compared against an old but reliable analog thermometer of known good status and a laser thermometer with high accuracy, this new product registers 2-3 degrees lower than the true air temp...consequently, the oil fired furnace cycles on/off throughout the day. On the Internet other consumers have identified the same problem, some folks even trying 2-3 of these thermostats only to discover this is a systemic issue. Save your money. This is a very poor product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike This product simplifies your heating and cooling operation. It removes the "guesswork" of setting set-back thermostats.
Easy to install. I am not gifted to set these new sat-back thermostats, sometimes the heat comes on in the middle of the night because I didn't correctly input the correct information. it's easy, before you go to bed, turn down the heat, when you get up in the morning, turn it up to your setting.
