Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by apaulcolypse Better for the price
I bought this simply because it looks nice and seems to be a great value for the price, you get the little cheap looking smoke detector with it and it's STILL cheaper than the one without the smoke detector.
According to the employees, this is the exact same CO detector as the single one that costs almost twice as much so it definitely made the purchase that much easier.
Can't really test the accuracy unless you take it out to the garage and close the door, but I dont wanna try that, so I hope it works.
I put 4 stars because:
1) The smoke alarm that comes with it is cheap
2) I can't give 5 stars to something I can't know works for sure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WoodinVirginia Replacement for 5 yr old first alert CO2 detector
Has digital on screen RED LED readout. Figure normally displayed is zero. Has 9V battery backup (in which we put long life Lithium 9v battery) Has auto test button on front cover. Plugs into AC outlet and ALLOWS use of top plug !!
I like that feature.. doesn't take up both plugs when in use.
All and all looks like a good fit.. The special price we recived wasn't bad either.. worth the wait as it was on a 3 week ackorder.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by katesmom Seems to work fine
I haven't actually tried the smoke alarm yet - I bought this package for the carbon monoxide alarm and the package price was better then the CO alarm by itself.
I specifically wanted a display showing the CO reading, and this has it. I haven't found any CO to actually see it read anything but 0. But the backup battery kept it going just fine when my power went out. It's a bright red LED with a dot that blinks. I suppose it could be annoying in a dark bedroom, but I find it nice to be able to see it from quite a distance.
I'm using mine in the stand on a table configuration, and that works fine. Getting the plug out of the back and setting it up was a bit of a pain, but not too bad. If your hearing is sensitive, wear ear protection if you plug it in without the battery or test it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by frank4obx an important home addition at a great price
Best deal around for this alarm, mfg date was 2011, but from what I learned, "actual" life cycle of product starts when it is "activated". These CO2 sensors are generally good for 5 - 7 years so it's important to replace them after that period is up. Use a magic marker to indicate the "installation date". Fast ship by HD (after initial backorder). Ease of HD website helps the ordering process,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by theBestStuff Very good deal on a carbon monoxide detector with a digital display
This is one of the few detectors on the market with a continuously updating LED display for the amount of carbon monoxide in your room. The First Alert units are actually slightly more accurate according to professional reviews but you have to hit a button to activate the display which turns off after a few seconds. The included smoke alarm to as cheap as you can get, nothing to rave about.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reet Night Hawk CO detector with smoke alarm bonus
I have had this CO detector in the past and it lasted ten years without a problem. The batteries install easily which is not true of a lot of CO detectors. I like the digital display. The price was a bargain on line even without the bonus smoke detector. I picked it up at the store. I gave the smoke alarm to my son as I have a hard wired one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dave unit good battery bad
The unit itself works good as i expected but the battery it came with ran out of power after jusat 3 days. The company should pack fresh batteries with the units. I would rate the whole thing as a 5 if it wasn't for this issue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1MOM BEST OF EVERYTHING
This is a great CO detector with a digital readout. Plug in and battery backup. Bonus battery smoke detector included, wow ! Dare to compare anywhere. Best price just on the CO detector and a bonus smoke detector.
