After upgrading from a non-programmable thermostat to this one, I am very pleased with it. With our crazy schedules, it is nice to come home to a temp controlled house. The energy savings are also a big plus. Very easy to install, should not take you more than 10 minutes, even for the beginner. Good quality and everything you need in a thermostat. Easy to use and easy to set up. Backlit display is great, too. Easy to see anytime of the day or night.

I really like programmable thermostats for the simple fact is they save you money. The installation was straight forward and only took 10 minutes. I use a separate thermostat for my air conditioner because I have forced hot water heat and it was installed after I built the house. The both thermostats are within one degree of each other so I can tell that this will work just fine. The programs are easy to set and I love the back light and large LCD numbers.

Replaced my non-programmable thermostat with this one. Wiring instructions were clear and the jumper wire was included which I needed based on how the old thermostat was wired. Took about 5 minutes to install.
Programming was pretty straight forward although it doesn't clearly indicate when you're programming it what step you're on. IE... it shows the day of the week but not if you're setting the "leaving" or "arriving" schedule. I had to go back through the schedule twice to make sure everything was synced up.
So far the temperature has done what I've expected when I've expected it. I'm actually liking this better than the "smart" thermostats because I found the one I had before started altering the schedule and switching to "Away" when I was home which wasn't comfortable.
A hold option is available too if you want to skip the schedule and keep a set temp ideal for being away on vacations, etc.
Only drawback I saw is that you have to selected cool or heat the thermostat can't switch automatically but that's only an issue in Texas a couple times during the year.

I have owned three different programmable thermostats, and they have all been wonderful as far as money-saving. No accidentally leaving it high or low, and it will come on at a preset time to have your house just the way you like it by the time you get home.
This one is just a tiny bit behind the others, because of the 5-1-1 programming versus the 7-day programming. With 5-1-1, it's the same schedule Monday through Friday (5), with Saturday and Sunday having their own. This is fine for me because I work M-F with weekends off. This would not work very well for someone whose "weekend" includes a weekday. You would definitely want a 7-day for that.
Also, and this is a matter of preference, I was used to adjusting the temperature and it would stay at that until the next programmed segment. Then it reverts to the programming. With this one, you set up a length of time for temp adjustments, and no matter when you do it, it stays that way for the time you programmed, like 2 hours, no matter what. If you need it longer, you have to set it again.
It's easy to install if you're somewhat handy and replacing an existing thermostat. Follow the instructions and label the wires with the stickers provided and you shouldn't have any trouble. I installed one in an apartment, and took it with me when I bought a house (yes, I put the old one back), and reinstalled it there. Easy-peasy.

The White Rodgers programmable thermostat is easy to install and has separate set up for weekdays and weekends. It will help out with my energy bills when I'm not home. I like the backlight and filter change reminder also.
