Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick I bought this last night for my house built in 1993. Unfortunately they only had wires: R W G Y and RC. NO C WIRE! My HVAC had it but I was am not fishing new wires through the wall until I get a new HVAC.
Solution? From the furnace remove the G wire and screw it into the C terminal. Then run a jumper wire from the G terminal on the furnace to the Y terminal.
You lose the "fan" function, but you DON'T need it at all! The jumper turns the fan on for HEAT or AC.
Problem solved. Enjoy it. Hope this helps people with older systems.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dadamuh WARNING!! "Rebate" = 3rd Party Monitoring and More
Quick and easy installation for an advanced DIYer. even with adding a "C" wire that had been left disconnected by the previous homeowner the total install time took less than 30 minutes. Backplate fit the old Honeywell unit, so no new mounting holes were needed. Honestly a bit pricey for what you get, but there was an advertised $50 rebate in my area so I thought, why not? Only catch was after using the scan code for that rebate and reading the fine print at home, you're basically giving up all private energy usage information in exchange for a few measly dollars. Read the fine print, folks! Why the sudden interest in monitoring how I choose to heat and cool my home, as long as I can afford the bills who cares?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oldtater Great Product
I purchased this product in August, 2016 when I replaced my aging Trane heat pump and thermostat.
So far, it is performing superbly. Like anything else, there is always a small learning curve. Just getting familiar with the product by selecting the buttons on the panel, directs you to proper settings. What is really nice, is the continuity of the inside and outside temperature and humidity are displayed simultaneously. The type is clear and crisp. Changes can be made via an app on our iPhone, iPad, including logging onto the PC.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RL This model is the easiest to install and setup. Wiring is simple and straightforward and took about 10-15 minutes. Connecting to your wifi is done using the keyboard on the thermostat itself as opposed to having to go online and trying to figure out how to connect. I have two of these and would not buy any other thermostat.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by abc123 Wasn't able to use it
This item didn't work for me. I would have need to hire an hvac guy to add a cord to get me to 24volts. I guess I need something battery operated.

I am a construction worker but i dont deal with wires lol. Anyway i had no problems getting it set up had to do a google search for a wire as i wanted to make sure it was right.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Windsurfer Awesome Thermostat
I have had this thermostat for a couple of months now, and am very pleased with it. I bought it for its' large color display which I thought would be easier to read than other monochrome thermostats. I also wanted the WiFi connectivity that it offered. I was not disappointed with either of these features. The screen is indeed easy to read with aging eyes, and the WiFi connectivity was easy to setup. Overall setup and programming of the thermostat is simple and straight forward. So far, the only thing I would change on this unit, is the color. Not sure who thought that a silver color thermostat would be desirable, but I obviously disagree with them. At $200, the unit is a bit pricey, as you can get thermostats with the same features but without WiFi and color display for less than half the price. Adding these two features should not more than double the price. I'd give this unit 5 stars if not for the color and price.
