Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jnkau Smart-Base Programmable Baseboard Thermostat
I recently replaced the 10 baseboard heaters in my house with the Cadet heaters. I used the manual controls in the downstairs heaters, and the Smart-Base Electronic Thermostats in the heaters upstairs where we spend most of our time. Although they are somewhat difficult (for me) to program and the buttons are hard to use, I think these thermostats combined with the Cadet heaters, are the best value on the market. I manually entered a set point of 70 degress in all of the thermostats and they work just fine. I will probably realize a savings in the cost of the thermostats over the manual controls, after the first year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RKoz Purchased two thermostats for attic
I recently added a third bedroom in my renovated attic and needed a heating source for it. I chose the 6 ft. 1,500-Watt 240 Volt Electric Baseboard Heater White because of the look and features of the product. The selling point for me also was this option of the programmable thermostats. I just received my new electric bill and only noticed a very minimal increase which I was a nice surprise.
Even though the buttons are very hard to push I view this as a good thing because it helps prevent my children from changing the settings. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ThomasQ Convenient and easy to install.
Although programming is not difficult, remember that device is low to the floor.
The thermostat clock must be reset each time you turn off the heater using the switch, or if it loses power.
For that reason I am returning this thermostat, and going with an external thermostat.
For the price that this thermostat costs, it should at least be able to keep time for a short period, or self set.
It is also difficult to see the display unless you get on your knees. A backlit display might help.

We had the other type of controller with the dial and this one can't compare. Keeps temp within 3 degrees since we hooked it with the Cadet heaters.
