What would fellow HUKDers say is the better product: Hive or Nest (3rd Gen)?

Any particular reason?

I guess it depends on your taste and your boiler.
I have a tradition hot water system, with a tank, so I went for Hive 2.
Excellent price. This is rarely below £250.

​we got rid of this and got the nest 2, the hardware is OK but the software (app) is crap. the nest is way better. we're getting the version 3 on release
while you were looking at those you should have also looked up the definition of a troll, you've come on two hive threads just to say you think they're a waste of money. damn what am I thinking, you should never feed a troll.

Very tempted by this but, from reading the various reviews/comparisons, it looks like the Nest 3 has the slight edge. The thing that puts me off the Hive is it's a 3 piece combo - it has an extra hardware unit, that has to be plugged into the router. Yet another thing to be plugged in in an already crowded corner of the house. The Nest is a 2 unit combo.

But the Nest 3 £70 better? Hmmm... Very tempted.
If I buy from British Gas direct I can pay £99 (I think) extra for the 2 zones in my house. How would I do this using this deal? Thanks
Typical! Had ours fitted yesterday after paying 250!
I wanted a nest originally but then discovered it didn't do hot water so went for hive, Only to discover nest 3 about a week after booking hive installation. I'm doing well here...
Been waiting for a deal like this. Sold.
Does the Nest 3 still only control heating and not hot water? Or does it now do both?
OK, this may sound stupid, but I have a combi boiler so don't need one with water control. There is no deal on the heating only one. Would this cause problems?

I called them up earlier about this. If you want to save the 20 quid and get it from Amazon then you can. You then order the extra zones from British Gas at £99 up until the end of the year. It will probably mean two engineer visits (included in the £99) though. I've taken the plunge, so I'll see how it goes.

The poor sales folk at British Gas were a bit peeved that Amazon had undercut their special Black Friday deal too!

I did want the Nest 3rd Gen, but it was looking at costing around £150 more for dual zone.

Oh dear thanks for the update - I decided against taking the risk and just bought it from British Gas direct and added multi zone to my order! Well done for saving the £20 tho!
